50th Post

WOW!! I didn't think I would post this many times. I thought that maybe I would get busy doing other things and forget about it. But, look at me, here I am at 50. Posts, that is.

I have a lot of things to catch you up with, so let's get started...

It doesn't seem like July 10th should feel so long ago, but it does. We have taken the girls to the local water park. We have season tickets. I took a book with me. (Big surprise there) I started reading the Twilight series. And am I ever hooked. I realize it was written for teenagers, but they really are good books. I read the first three in a week. And am now anxiously awaiting the release of the fourth one. In the mean time, I am reading Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum books. I love them. They are a quick read. I am only on the 5th one, but I love Grandma Mazur. She is a hoot. I am also reading a couple of other books. Check out my list on the side bar.

We had Carolyn and Brannon over for Brannon's birthday. We grilled. It was nice. We had ice cream cake and sang to him.

I had my second post op check up and was given a thumbs up. The doc removed the remaining stitches, thank goodness. They were really annoying. Now I just get to wait 4 months or so for the bone to grow to the graft really well before he can put the anchor for the post in. Sounds great doesn't it. No, you can't be me!!

Friday the 18th I decided to go to my local scrapbook store to pick up a couple things and help a friend with her ATG. I helped her out. I managed to only spend a few dollars, which is really good for me. I was out of there for under $30. Go me! Anyway, I was turning left and was hit by a white SUV. I am fine. Only a couple of seatbelt bruises, but my car is totalled. At least all who saw the car say that it "won't see the street again". I was REALLY shaken by the accident. It was the first accident I have been in. Hopefully my last. Danny had to go out of town last week, so I was left doing the single parent thing. Which is probably a good thing because it forced me to get back behind the wheel. I think it would have been WAY too easy to just ride with him in the car. To say my confidence was shaken is a HUGE understatement. But, he is home now and my confidence is back. Almost 100%. I would say I am at 97%. We haven't gotten the official insurance report that the car was totalled, but we have been looking at cars. We should find out today or tomorrow what the final verdict is. Let me know if you have any strong opinions about cars. We need three rows of seats, and Danny doesn't want to spend more than $10. Wish him luck. hehehehe I have wants. I want a sunroof. I want a C/D changer. I want leather seats (for the seat warmer. I want a remote start. He also has wants. He wants cruise control. He wants a low price tag. We both want good mileage. I'll keep you updated.

I made a trip to Sam's on saturday. I bought meat. I put together a meatloaf to throw in the oven one day this week, and I cooked up some meatballs for spaghetti one day this week too. Three cheers for me. I'm almost domestic this week. Also stocked up on fresh produce. The girls have been going through nectarines like crazy. And salad. And strawberries. They really are good eaters.

I will post some pics of the girls later this week. I haven't had a chance to download from the camera in a bit.

So much to comment on - 50 - the blog looks so young!

I'm impressed by how large a car budget Danny has agreed to. Good negotiating. So very sorry about your accident, but glad you are safe and sound.

You are so brave about your surgery - still crossing my fingers about it taking.
