Gosh, it has been almost a year since I posted? There is something wrong about that! I guess now that I am off work for a while due to my surgery I suppose I should post here now and then huh?
Jim and I are both still recovering from this bug that I caught about the same time I had surgery. Looks like we will both be going back to the dr again this because I now have white spots on my tonsils, and Jim because he still isn't feeling good after having pneumonia.
Good news is I did finally get the Dizmang Books all scanned, now I just need to rotate half of the 970 pages because I had to scan half of the book upside down! *L* Then I will get it put on pdf form so anyone who wants to have a copy can. :)

uh oh

Yeah as usual I am behind...surprise surprise! I need about 3 more of me to go around and some extra days in the week...then maybe I could get everything done that I want to do! *LOL*
Have I done any more scrapping? Well....yes and no. I haven't made any more pages lately, but I did get Austynn a little animal book made and since I haven't posted since June...I did make Mal and Tyler a cook book for their wedding gift, with some family recipes in it.
Oh and I have definately boughten (is that a word? oh well if it wasn't before it is now!) supplies! And I do still browse scrappy sites and read my scrappy magazines *L* That counts doesn't it? And thanks to Kathy for sending me the link to a new blogPurple Pumpkin. Oh how I wish I could order some kits!! Anyway, go check it out and check out the cool give-away!!

I seriously need to get busy scrapping again! I have been looking at blogs and found this one on the Punky Sprouts Facebook page Red Oak Lines. I have been checking out all the mini albums (which is what need to be working on..I need to make cookbooks especially) and have found so much inspiration. Maybe I will get something done on Thursday when I am off..or on Saturday before we have to go up to Arrowhead for Jim to help with the Ham Radio testing.

Geneology work

Man you just never know where it will lead you, or who you may find along the way. It is like a wonderful mystery unfolding with so many twists and turns along the way. Right now it is challenging. I am trying to find information on a distant cousin, Joy Casserly. Her mother Ruth Price wrote letters to a lot of my Dizmang family members, and I would love to find Joy to talk to her about her mother and find out if she happened to have saved any of the Dizmang family information that she collected through the years.
According to Ruth's letters, many of which I have recently gotten copies of, her Dizmang heritage was a source of great joy and interest to her. So wish me luck in my search! It has taken me places I never imagined and resulted in me trying to contact people I could only dream of hearing from! :)
To be continued..hopefully!!

I see a pattern here....

I posted last month on the last day of the month and I come here tonight to post and discover it is the last day of this month, so I believe I see a pattern developing my granddaughter Kayden would say *L*

It's been another crazy month. I started the month off getting sick, then Jim went to Huntington Beach for training, he came home sick. The same night he got home Madi flew in to spend a week with us :) and on the day she flew home I got sick again. At least mine was just a sinus infection with allergies, Jim had pneumonia. But he is feeling much better now, 10 days after starting his antibiotics.

We had a fabulous time with Madi while she was here on Spring Break!! We took her shopping at Kohl's, I took her to the mall shopping and just having a fun girls time.

Plus I got a surprise day off last Wed so her and I had a good time together just running around the desert to see what there was to do and showing her all the new stuff here.

We got a couple chocolate covered strawberries at The Cinnamon Roll Lady in Hesperia and a couple cinnamon rolls (you have to try her pecan rolls..OMG they are sinful!!

We also took her to see Charlie race the first race of the season at the VV Raceway. It was a fun night!!

Friday night we took her to Huntington Beach. It was a little chilly, but it was so fun and we got there in time to see the gorgeous sunset!

Well if you took the time to read all of this and it is still March 31st *L* Go check out Between Naps On the Front Porch blog and enter for a chance to win a beautiful piece of jewelry!

Another rainy Saturday

I think we have met or exceeded our annual rainfal amount for the year! It has been a wet wet winter! I am SOOOOOO ready to start working in the yard, and I want a garden this year. Jim and I have been talking about putting a picket fence in the front yard, so now I have all these ideas in my head of things I want to do out there.

Speaking of gardening....Spring is coming..yes only 3 weeks from today until Spring is here!!!!

I am also wanting to really...REALLY get back to my scrapping. I have been reading my scrapping magazines, and getting some of my scap stuff organized.....again. Here are a couple pages I did earlier this month.

My blog was taken over by aliens!

Otherwise where in the world did those wacked out comments from my first post of the year come from? I was able to delete all but 1...and that 1 eludes me.

Yes, I know I have been a slacker again. 2010 has not turned out to be the least stressful of years so far. I know, we are not even done with Feb yet, but trust me on this one.

Jim has done well since his surgery, with only a couple setbacks, but they were enough to worry me. But he has lost around 50 pounds so far already!!
Then Kayden got sick with pnemonia and ended up in Children's hospital and got sent home right before her 5th birthday, to end up going right back into the hospital a couple days later. I think they sent her home too soon in the first place. She was so sick and the dr's couldn't figure out what was going on, well the finally diagnosed it as Necrotizing Pnemonia. In a word...serious!!! This is a form on pnemonia that causes the lung tissue to liquify.

The good news is she is back home now and her PICC line is out, but she is still on antibiotics until at least next week, and she is still on oxygen when she sleeps. The are coming into my daughter's home next week and doing a sleep test on Kayden also. Jamie says Kayden's dr's have been awesome, thank God!! We had so many people all over the world praying for Kayden, her dr's and the rest of us and I am so thankful for that.

Then last week we had to make an emergency run to Utah to help my stepson, whose wife just filed for a divorce. Nice Valentines Day gift don't ya think? *sigh* We did get to spend a lot of time with Shaun and Patrick though. And I went scrapbook shopping!! :)

Now we are back home...and I am sick with some kinda flu all those albums I bought in utah will have to wait to be filled when I am feeling better.
