New Bag I made for My Mom.....

I finally finished my bag and I am going to give it to my mom who is having a really rough time still dealing with my granny's passing. I figure one day I will come across more time to make me one but for now I will be off making all the items for Christmas gifts and donations. I need to get them done before they start the biopsy or any other testing so i know it is done.
Hope Yall like it.

Bad news at E.R.

So I was in pain on Tuesday night all night and it was awful. It was chest paina nd I was scared to death couldnt sleep a wink and no pain medicine would help. Off I go to the E.R. Wed. Morning and after almost 6 hours we finally get the word of what is going on. First off the chest wall was bruised somehow on the inside and on top of that I had gallbladder disease known to many as simply Gallstones and nice big ones and not at all comfortable. So then the dr goes and also on your ct scan we found what seems to be a good size xyst on your right breast which needs to be looked at immediatly. I guess I sat there for a few minutes and then it hit me no way does my family need this havent we been through enough. Now this my life seemed to almost stop why would I need to have this to deal with. I am still stund as i type this I will definitely keep you posted on the findings as I am heading to the specialist asap next week as soon as my referral gets put in. Now as I told my uncle the news today he then said we have got some serious problems it seems the dr also found a lump on his lungs yesterday at his already scheduled ct scan. So now I guess we can share a room as we go on the journey together. I pray that his is not cancer as my granny that just passed was his mom and he took it pretty hard. Now we sit here trying to figure out how to tell my mom who is actually out of town the findings.

New Hobby Making Bags

So I guess I am hooked literally lol.. But ever since i did the freeform bags for the purse swap i am hooked on making bags which is a bad thing in a way, since i am trying to get x-mas gifts done too. Only so much time in a day to hook as they say lol. I am pulling out a pattern that I have wanted to do for a long time and a woman who is very dear to me has finally talked me into it lol ok it wasnt that hard I was really just worried I couldnt do the pattern justice. I am a better freeformer than a pattern reader lol. So here it is the start of a new era.
I will keep ya'll updated... This picture is from earlier tonight before i even got done with the first panel im on the back panel now so maybe we will get lucky and it will turn out perfect. Ok well one can wish can't she?

CeCe is Better 100%

The vet gave our CeCe a clean bill of health she is back on heartworm meds and has gotten all her new shots and boosters. Thank God for this I dont know what we would have done if we would have lost her too. The kids are still ahving a hard time with CoCo being gone but each day it gets better with CeCe doing so good. I took these pics this mornign when she got up. She sleeps in a pen like area for now due to Austin getting up at night and stepping on her when he goes to potty. Poor thing he gets so sad too and doesnt make it when he does it so we put her a pen up in the kids room and it seems to be better.

Life What's Next


SO the Doom Day came adn so it is the military better yet the Air Force decided to force 20k people out my hubby was one of them. A man who spends his everyday working his Ass off for them even went on TDY during my serious surgery to make them happy they decide they dont need him. He lives and breaths the military and they decide he is able to be without we are at war and they dont want him better yet they want to force him to the Army instead and i have nothing wrong with the army its not them but the air force is what has done this to this good man. He feels defeated and it is wrong they are going to see in a few months that they needed these people they forced out then what.. Im so sorry that I had to vent I really just needed a few minutes to get it off my chest thanks for listening
