Friday's Feast, 1000 Blessing's Friday & A Final Post


Using only one word, how does grocery shopping make you feel?



What is your favorite part about the season of Autumn?

Definitely watching the leaves change colors! We have some beautiful trees around here that I get to enjoy.


Have you ever had any bad experiences online?

No, thank goodness!

Main Course

Name three things that make you happy daily.

Knowing that I have a relationship with Christ and that no matter what happens I will be with Him eternally!
Knowing that I am blessed with a family that loves me unconditionally.
Knowing that each morning is a fresh new start with no mistakes in it.


What one household cleansing or organizing item would you not want to be without?

I couldn't live without my OxiClean! Good stuff.

1000 Blessing's Friday
71. Cooler weather. And I know this because I actually got to drive on Monday!! And it felt so good. :o)

72. Discovery of a new flavor of peanut butter~roasted peanuts & honey. Yummy.

73. Wonderful, competent leaders in our Awana group. I don't have to worry while I miss the next month or so.

74. My period will be over and done with right before I have surgery!

75. I've been able to get quite a few things accomplished such as bills made out and grocery shopping done.

76. Selling things on e-Bay and making some good money while getting rid of junk!

77. Ooh! Double sevens, I like this number. Anyway, I am blessed that my daughter works at Blockbuster and we get five free rentals each week. I got to watch Ma & Pa Kettle and laugh and laugh!

78. I found some more comfy pants to wear after surgery.

79. I watched my first football game with my husband last night & survived! Go Colts!

80. My son's knee is going to be okay!

I know most of you know this already, but for those that are new today this is for you. I am going in on Monday the 10th to have my right hip replaced. I had my left one done eight weeks ago. I have juvenile rheumatoid arthritis is the reason for the replacements.

Okay, I have a few prayer requests please. 1. Again, that they can easily find a vein for the iv. 2. That my right knee doesn't hurt as much after this surgery like my left one did. 3. My husband as he stays with me day and night. It's not easy sleeping on those chairs, but he wants to stay with me. 4. That I don't have to have a blood transfusion. 5. And lastly, that I don't get an infection.

I've had tremendous success with the last one and I am so excited to get the next one done. I can't wait to be able to get in a car all by myself again! And hopefully by Christmas I will be able to actually go shopping this year!

This will be my last post for quite awhile. Please don't forget about me! I promise to be back as soon as possible. And next time you see me I'll be movin' and a groovin'...lol!

Thank you for all your love and prayers!
