and though I need three crowns and a few fillings replaced there is nothing new~PLUS they said my gums look great. I have been going to a periodontics for seven years. I have been on chemo for three years comes February and this is the first time the numbers are better, the bleeding was minimal and he said keep up the good work things look great. Funny, I was fanatical in the beginning and I had a decent diet. Now my diet is not so good, and I am only so so with cleaning yet things are better. How does that work? Who cares things are good! Yay!
this year I am only up to 147. The group from “let’s write letters” never sent me an updated list. I asked twice, so I guess I have sent enough cheer this year. My cards are all addressed and almost all stamped. Just need to write return address on them.
good thing my daughter and I work on this together…we have close to 90 people to deliver things to, and the three kids and school want to keep our tradition of bringing something in for each kid. Grandson’s are all wanting to bring in cards for each kid too! Good thing I bought a bunch last year on clearance sale.
second round by the end of the week!
not really a Christmas gift, but made it because my husband never remembers birthdays. We had a birthday book and it didn’t help. We had a list on the wall and it didn’t help. So now I made this and we will see if it helps. He missed one birthday this month before we hung this up.
Thanks to my grandsons for helping me. I finished the last twenty today!
Been looking high and low around the house and may have found some other ideas of gifts to give. Hubby set my account straight and bought me a 25 pound bag of flour and sugar…so today the baking begins!
It is not going to happen as I need the money to buy the things, and also the ingredients to make the stuff. My daughter and I will have a bake day one or two days this coming week and see how far we can get.
My two grandson’s helped me with these and so I only have twenty left to finish. Very excited to almost be done. We had about 104 when we started. The younger of the two(he’s nine)put the key ring holder on the bracelet. The older one(he’s eleven) figured out how to work the crop-a-dile. He then punched the holes in the flowers. I started punching the holes in the bracelets. The older did his part and helped me with my part, then he proceeded to put together like ten of them, and I got two done. He did get tired of it and left me to keep working on them, which was fine as all the more tedious stuff was done. I have just been assembling them. Twenty should be easy to finish by Thursday.

Seems to be a small list this year, but looking forward to sending cards out!
On my second set of tapes ~ The Healing Heart by Norman Cousins read by William Conrad. First set done was Hug the Monster by David Miln Smith, PhD & Sandra Leicester. Down side of this one is you have to listen to it as it records and have to be there to stop it when it is done. It is awesome having the cassettes going into the computer and being able to listen to them! Excited to be really working on this goal.
between my eleven year old grandson and myself we figured out how to use the new one. We have one side of one tape done. Yay! Now I can really start working on this one. I have an awful lot of them to record, but so happy I can really start doing it. Plus the thing I got for negatives is going to work as well once I get an SD card. Everyone tell me not to get rid of the negatives, but I have albums and boxes full and just want to get them on SD and get rid of them. It’s not like I am a professional and can sell them. I think 2014 is going to start off much better than 2013 did, and I am looking forward to working on these goals.
Up until I was diagnosed with the cancer I was fairly happy with my diet and with my weight. I am ready to get back to that. No more excuses of chemo(though it is true) I am stronger than that! I will go back to eating no cheese, only more natural types of sugar(sucanat, honey), and stop drinking soda pop(which I know from several experiments of drinking it and not drinking it that my body is better without it).
finished with the expansion on the right side and now it needs to rest for three months and then sometime in March I will have the final surgery and this part of the journey will be over. Yay!
so I bought something new and cheap off nomoreracks. Waiting for it to come in the mail. It looks like it should be easier. I am hoping so. If I can figure out how to work it I will record all the cassettes I have and get rid of them out of the house. Looking forward to less stuff. Bought another cheap scanner for photos and hope I am able to get it to work as I will get rid of all of them too. I am 55 and started taking pictures when I was around 10. For me digital is the way to go. I have the little SD cards and can look at or print the ones I want, no mess, no clutter, no trying to preserve them in albums or other ways to organize them. And to my disappointment I have all my negatives and put them in protective sleeve, but a lot of them are fussed to the plastic. My how times have changed now they sell negative pages that the negatives won’t stick too. Too late for that!
Pastor Dave from Holy Life Tabernacle made these part of his weekly service teachings…too good not to be an inspiration for others and who better to share with than 43thingers!
watching my second granddaughter being born. This is the seventh child I have witnessed coming into this world and I love the experience. Six of the seven were born to my daughter and I have to say it is so hard and heart wrenching to watch your own child suffer through the pain of the birth, but oh, so rewarding to see new life come into this world. Seven births and not one like the other! A true miracle and blessing…each and every birth. Thinking about becoming a doula. My daughter is having her tubes tied so no more grandbabies…though with six grandkids I am sure I will have plenty of great grandbabies!
My daughter is going at 7:30 am to be induced. Tonight we found a sitter for the one and three year old. Neither of them have been away from mom so it should be interesting, but I think it will be good. The other three boys will be at school. God willing Adela will be born before I have to leave to get the two little ones and be home in time for the school bus to arrive. Really my daughter and I need to get a life and find some friends. We said that with each one of her kids was born and here we are the night before and just found someone for the two. It happens to be a brand new mom and her husband that is going to let the kids come to there apartment and stay till Adela arrive.
My how times have changed~the sex is know, so there is a name already, and the day is planned. Wow!
