a FEW PICTURES

Hello everyone out there!  Happy 4th of July!  I hope you all have a safe and happy holiday.  God Bless America and all my friends near and far. 

Eric is still looking for a job.  He has a part time job next door to his apartment for now, but he isn't getting enough hours.

He has his application everywhere.  So keep praying!

Mom has had her second chemo treatment and has had her head shaved as all her hair was coming out.  She is trying to keep her spirits up and those of us around her.  Keep praying/

I got new contacts and glasses, so I can see!

One of the kids at work heard about my vision dilema and just handed me a check for 200.00,  I did not want to hurt his feelings so I used the money for my eyes.

He is getting married in December and I plan on giving him a check for 200.00 as a wedding present......

Rick has been working out of town alot.  He leaves on Monday and comes home on Friday.

I miss him

We celebrated our 26th wedding anniversary on June 27, but he was out of town, so we plan on going out this weekend.

I don't know what is wrong with me,. but my back is killing me.  I think I might have pulled a few muscles lifting dog food at work.

It was hurting so bad yesterday that I could hardly move.

I had to call in I was told I would be written up for missing even though I could not move physcally to do the job.....

I go in today at 1:45.  My back is still killing me, but I can not afford to miss another day of work.

I have sick leave, but you have to give two weeks notice.....

HMMMM how the heck do you know two weeks in advance that you are going to be ill?

Any who.

For the most part we are moving along.

Thanks for your continued prayers.  Keep on praying!

Back hurts ??  Lifting dog food at work?? Sounds like an L & I case to me.  How crazy of them to give you a hard time when you strained your back at work.  They should be falling all over you, doing what they can to see that your back feels better.  Barbara, it was good to hear from you...will put your requests on my prayer list.  Have a good day..Linda in Washington

Honey, you're a flaming mess.  You may just have to sing about this.  

FYI...the $200 wouldnt be a gift at that point it will be payback of a loan.
