On the road to recovery

Am feeling much better this week. Every day is better than the last. This surgery is much different than the ones I've had before. I felt better a few hours after surgery. I know that sounds weird but I was only sore and not much more.
I am only allowed to lift up to 25 lbs. right now and that is difficult to remember b/c of feeling so well. I am being good though. Just doing little jobs around the house and having everyone else help. Am back to work too. Am glad I don't have too many little ones to carry around all day. That would be tough. Also glad the girls are home to help with everything. They have been a great help to me during this (and hubby has helped a lot too, in case he reads this hehe)

life size battleship

We had a lot of fun this last Saturday with the Lifesize battleship we made at our church. Our youngest daughter came up with the idea. Very ingenius of her. We made the ships out of cardboard and painted them. Used red and white paper plates for the hits and misses. Then we split the kids into two teams-the Pirates and Navy. They plotted their moves and we had people on the gym floor calling the moves and putting the plates on the ships. It was a lot of fun. We had BBQs and potato salad and chips. I think everyone enjoyed theirselves.
Wonder what game we will think of next to do life size???? Any ideas? :)
Oh, the first picture is Our youngest trying to figure out how many of her make up the 15 ft. ship.

what a weekend

Well, the weekend didn't turn out like i had thought it would. Friday evening we went to see the new Harry Potter movie.(which was really good) and I wasn't feeling well half way through the movie but didn't think too much of it. Then Saturday morning I really didn't feel well. My hubby had gone to the hospital to get blood work done for his dr. came back and we ended up going back to the hospital b/c I wasn't doing well. Ended up that I had emergency apendectomy. I guess my appendix was pretty infected which is why I wasn't feeling well the night before. I am so glad my husband decided to go right to the ER instead of the clinic b/c it didn't take long and we were gettting ready for surgery. Luckily, I wasn't able to eat that day so was good to go.
Surgery didn't take long. I was told it was only a 15 minute surgery. Of course I was in there for about 2 hours by the time all was done. My hubby was so upset with the whole thing. Poor guy. I felt so bad for him,but our church had some men come sit with him while I was in surgery.
Am home now and doing well. Just wish I could've brought that bed home with me. Pretty comfy and helped with the getting up part. Ha :) Mom and Dad will be here tomorrow which will be nice. We will see about the running around part this week. Not too much for me I guess. :(

Wedding anniversary

We are going to Missouri this weekend to celebrate my hubby's parents' 50th wedding anniversary. Can't believe it is here already. They are having a get together at their house tomorrow. There are to be about 100 people there. We are also going to meet some more Forees. My hubby loves geneology and he met up with more Forees and invited them to the reunion. He is thrilled to meet more family b/c there are not too many Forees out there.
Will add pictures later after the get together. (if my camera will keep up) It is getting old. May have to take pictures on my phone. It seems to do better these days.
Raining today so hopefully it will quit before we have to travel. Have a great weekend all.

happy Fourth of July

Girly Comments & Graphics

Hope everyone has a great 4th of July. I just can't believe it is that time of year already. It has gone by way too quick. We are not doing much this weekend. Just staying around the house doing work on the stairs. We took the carpet off last weekend and now have to sand it down and stain it. Takes a while to do projects when all u do is work.
Enjoy the weekend.
