Well dummy me, laid here trying to get to sleep at a halfway decent hour last night. Surfing channels after the football game was over. Tired of listeing to the same old programs all the time and ready to watch something different if FootBall isn't on....For some reason I stopped on that channel where THE HAUNTED was on. Never watched it b/f so I lay here on the couch watching it. Supposed to be true story accounts of haunted houses and the encounters people have had in them with the paranormal. In every episode the people had pets and the pets (usually always dogs) discerned and reacted to the paranormal activity right away.I know they say it is true that animals can discern that stuff easily. Anyways, I watched several episodes and needless to say my eyes are wide open the later it got, couldn't sleep. Laid here under a blanket on the couch with the dogs and cat piled on top of me, scared to death. Then of course I hear every little noise and sound that was made and I am sure some noises that were not real..LOL. I was too scared to get up and see what they were. Soooo, another sleepless night cause I did something really dumb! That sort of stuff has always scared me and I never go to see those scary movies, especially if they are supposed to be based on a true story cause I don't want to know! Thankfully tonight, tomorrow night and Monday night is all about FootBall! WootWoot!!!!!

Drove to Valdosta this morn for my infusion treatment. Oh what a day.. not what i had hoped for. The nurse had a real hard time getting the plastic tube threaded into my vein for the IV. The right hand didn't work, they do it through the top of my hand, not in my arm. The vein did something and she couldn't get it to go in and ended up a bloody mess, got all over my wallet I had out of my purse an...
d just made a mess. And it hurt sooo bad b/f she gave up that I screamed and was in tears. Felt like a hammer hit my hand. So she did the other hand and got it in but was still extremely painful. This is the first time it has hurt this bad. Plus it took about 3 hours so it was a long session. Afterwards it was on to the lab for bloodwork. i figured after that nothing could hurt that bad but i was wrong. They stuck the top of my hand for blood that was just used for the infusion treatment and again I about went through the roof, then they did the other hand and finally got the blood. By the time the treatment was over and the lab work, I went out to the parking lot to leave and some noodle brain has parked so close to my van I couldn't even get between the vehicles, much less get the door open. Finally a gentleman from upstairs in the doc's office offered to get in on the opposite side and climb over the seat and back the van out for me, I can't do that due to my RA situation. The person had parked soo close that even this really thin man couldn't get between the vehicles., so he got in and climbed the seats and backed the van out for me. Finally I was able to get out of there, went to Olive Garden for the soup, salad and bread stick lunch, was delicious.. then tried to run some errands but felt light headed and woozy, pounding heart beat off and on.. and just didn't feel too good after my IV session, usually it doesn't bother me very much at all. I was hurting pretty bad also from a fall I took Friday so I ran just a few errands and the headed back to Moultrie. Started to rain a bit hard just as I got in. Got home around 5 in the evening. My fridge is old and on its last leg, it has water running out of it a lot and it puddles up in the middle of the floor... right in the path where you walk to go out the back door so needless to say, I didn't see how bad the puddle had gotten Friday and slipped down right in it and broke my big toe, bruised my feet and knee, hurt my arms, legs and back. I was able to finally get myself up after I just sat there and cried for about ten minutes I was so frustrated and it hurt! still feeling the pain. Hurts to wear shoes! This is twice in about a few months I have taken a spill from that puddle. The first time wasn't as bad. I keep a towel in the floor in front of it but it had gotten moved. Soon as I got home today, I took the dogs out, fed Curly, took my pain med , got my heating pad and blanket and parked myself on the couch!! I feel like I have been beat up and thrown in front of a truck! LOL. Hoping tomorrow will be better. On a better note, My sister and Sandy had their doc appts today also and both got good reports so kudos to them!! WOOT!!

This is so amazing! My daughter Kelly took this pic yesterday with her cell phone. It is the end of a Rainbow!! It ended right in her driveway practically at her front door!!! Sorry, no pot of Gold! It is a little hard to see, comes in fr...
om left side across that telephone pole, It is right where I always park in her driveway which is practically at her front door. It was so amazing. I wz able to get the pic to enlarge on computer as downlaoad from forwarding it to my email but can't figure out how to save that one.. no options available...it is very visible enlarged but still visible in this smaller one also. I told her maybe God is telling her that her storms are over. I definitely feel it is a prophetic thing.

My other niece, Nesy and her little son Gabriel walking on the beautiful beach today in Bradenton, Florida.. my home town. Gee I miss home a lot lately! My sister (who also still lives in Bradenton..Nessy's mom) said the winds were kicking...
a little but not to bad there today. I am so ready to move away from Georgia some days, missing home more and more...but one little problem.. $$$$$!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! But Georgia has it beautiful points too. And I do really like where I live. I just get lonesome these days for what little family I have .. my sister Teresa & her hubby, my Niece, my only brother Jimmy and his wife..they all still live in Bradenton. My daughters are both here in Georgia but they are married and have their own lives and don't know that they will stay around this area especially Celena and Michael once he finishes college since being out of the Navy. But I am glad they are close by for now, about 40 minutes each direction..LOL..

I have a huge yard and the grass had grown up quite high but thank God my son in law Michael and his brother Chris came and mowed it Friday. I was so happy, just feel so much nicer to have the grass and yard looking nice. My sweet baby Curly seems to be happy the grass is cut too!! He needs to be sheared sooo bad. Going to have to get that done very soon, don't want him to be cold during the winter. Doesn't seem like we really had too much of a winter or summer this year. Weather has been so crazy every where this past year I believe. Will be interesting to see what the winter brings. I do hope we get some SNOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The homes and rooms they featiured this time were sooo beautiful and prim and all decked out for a perfectly primitive Fall look!! I absolutely loved it, must say it was the best I have seen from them in a LONG time. If you haven't gotten a copy, pick one up, sit back with a cup of coffee and enjoy!!

Getting pounded with rain and winds for a couple days now from those feeder bands off the tropical storm out there in the Gulf. Finally got a little break in the rain today for about an hour maybe so I ran out there to pick blueberries after running errands all afternoon..., the berries hadn't been picked in days so I was hurrying as fast as I could and when I was almost done it got real dark all... the sudden, another big heavy cloud had come in and it started pouring down rain so I just stayed out there and finished picking, it was close to 6 or so ths evening and I was losing some light so it was hard to see the little berries but I got a lot of them, about 2 pounds again. Seems to be my quota each time! But you know what, that cold rain felt soo good, I felt like a little kid again playing in the rain so I just stayed out there until I was satisfied with the picking and then I went to my garden and picked squash in the rain and finally came inside. That rain shower felt so refreshing! There was no lightening or thunder at the time so it was just plain ole enjoyable staying out in it!

The sound on this new computer is totally awesome!!! Listening to some of my fav music. It sounds like a really awesome surround sound system!! That is what I didn't like about the laptop and any other puters I have, the sound is so low but this one is honestly like a surround sound! You wouldn't be able to stand it full volume in the same room with it!!

Wow!! Been a while! Had issues with my other computer so I had to buy a new one, this time I bought a brand new one, a Dell and I love it! Has sooo much Kewl stuff on it. It has a huge screen and is an "all in one" wireless so I can just take it from room to room, has the wireless mouse and keyboard too. A couple months ago Celena and Michael gave me a practically brand new Toshiba laptop. A friend of Michael's in the Navy shipped out to Afghanistan so the laptop wasn't going with them and they gave it to Michael, he and Celena gave it to me cause they didn't want it. Sooo, I am well covered in computers for now! I started my IV treatments yesterday. Was sooo scared and nervous about possible side effects or reactins to the drug, but I did fine. Celena and Michael drove me to Valdosta where I am getting the infusions.. have to go every two weeks for 2 hour IV treatments for six week and then I only have to go once every 8 weeks, for life. Had a great day with Celena and Michael though, we had lunch afterwards and then went to do a little shopping. I started to get a headache and heart palps and a few things like that later that evening after I was home, I am assuming that was all from the medication in my Treatment but it wasn't bad. So I was much more relieved. Also got weighed in at the doc office yesterday and have lost another 7 pounds so that was very happy news! Been losing weight steady now. Glad to be back on here and able to Blog again! Blessings to all!

Haven't posted in a while. Thanks so much Delores for caring and checking up on me. Weather has gotten soooo hot! Have another doc appt for my left arm and shoulder tomorrow in Valdosta with my rhuematologist. Little worried if he is going to say surgery this time but I am praying God will heal it and I won't have anything done to it. My little conatiner garden is looking better.I love fried green tomatoes and three tomato plants are looking good but I mostly am growing them for Curly. I don't like red tomatoes so Curly will get them all. Hope everyone has a very blessed week ahead. Blessings!

Well here is the fruit of my labor so far.. not looking so great, huh??! Hopefully that will change. I planted this stuff last week. Not sure if it is going to go anywhere. I had pampered the plants , being so careful for days until I was able to plant them in containers and when I had them all out there ready to plant, Lysha grabbed up the box of plants and started chewing away on a number of them! Nipped the tops right off the Squash and Bell peppers. Guess I can go back to the feed store for more, they were only 40 and 50 cents each. I have them inside my fenced area since last year I had them in my front yard and seems every time I left to go some where, when I got home what ever was about ready to pick was gone..yup, I have neighbors. But honestly isn't it so pathetic to come over and steal a fricking tomato and a pepper from some ones plants?? C'mon man! So this time I have it in a fenced private area w/ locked gate. Anyway, my doc appt in Valdosta never seems to be good news anymore. I couldn't tolerate the meds they had me on so now they say I am out of options and will have to go for two hour IV treatment sessions every other month for the rest of my life. Not looking forward to it. Seems Sandy and I have always joked about copying each other... Now she goes for her chemo and maintenance treatmenmts and now I am copying her with having to go for treatments too. Oh gee, getting older is not pretty at all! But good news is I have continued to lose weight. Have lost 13 lbs just this past month. Partly from the meds I was on I believe, made me sick to my stomach a lot but the other meds they tried have had bad results requiring hospital and surgery so I am down to the IV treatments as a last option, otheriwse I am in for trouble so please say a prayer for me those of you who will. Thanks so much everyone, God Bless and have A wonderful week!

Almost hard to see him but this bunny has been hanging around my front yard for weeks now., He is so cute! Had to take the pic through the window so I wouldn't scare him off.
