The Doctors, Really?

There is a show on TV called The Doctors.  Today their show is called, "The Hole Truth" where they will be discussing all of the holes in your body.  I don't need that in my morning.  If it's not a hole on my head I don't want to discuss it and I especially don't want to watch a TV show about it!

I'm afraid to even go past that channel when I'm looking for something to watch.  The last time it was on I caught a show about nipple discharge.  With my son.  In a waiting room.  As you can imagine, we were all squriming until I went up and asked them to change the channel.  We happily settled on Sesame Street.

If anything is having discharge or if I have a problem with any of my "holes" I'll talk to my Dr.  In private.  The way God intended it.

I'm The Sh!t

Hi guys, I overheard my youngest boy Jack talking to a friend today & he said, "My mom is the shit, she's the coolest."

Now the language is not what I would prefer, but I love that that's what he thinks of me.  He has told me that he is the only one of his friends who isn't always complaining about his parents. 

It makes me feel awesome that my boys love me & know how much I love them.  They are both really good boys.  Neither has ever gotten into any trouble and at 19 & almost 16 that feels pretty good.

I appreciate your comments and prayers for my grandmother.  She is still amazing the Dr's & was successfully taken off of the respirator yesterday.  I guess miracles do happen when you believe.

My Absence & BlogHer

Sorry I have been gone for so long.  My gastroparesis acted up again and had me in the hospital twice, the first time for almost a week.

Since I've been home, my grandmother went into the hospital and today had a surgery she was not expected to survive due to congenital heart failure.  I'm thrilled to announce that she made it through the surgery and is now in ICU.  She's not out of the woods yet, but the first major hurdle has been cleared.

I'm thrilled to announce that I'm going to be going to BlogHer this August.  Is anyone else going?  I'd love to meet up with you while you're there if you are!  Leave me a comment and let me know.

Finally I'll leave you with this from my Cute Overload calender cause it made me laugh, probably harder than I should have!

Does This Happen To You?

I go to sleep on any given night with my eyebrows looking halfway respectable, only to wake up and find that they grew to Andy Rooney sized proportions overnight.  How does this happen?

A Trip To Henry Ford Museum

Being from Michigan we get to take advantage of Henry Ford's vision of an amazing museum & property, The Henry Ford Museum Museum & Greenfield Village are full of amazing historical attractions like Albert Einstein's original Menlo Park Labratory, war buildings & a working farm.

On the inside of the museum are amazing pieces like this one.  The chair the President Lincoln was sitting in when he was shot, along with an original playbill.

The Bus that Rosa Parks made her famous ride is there along with the Wright Brother's original plane.

This is the car (with a roof now) that President Kennedy was assisinated in.  The US Presidents continued to use this car for almost 15 years after Kennedy was shot.

Chris always likes the trains best & I oblige him by trying to ooh & aah over them every time!

Dubbed America's Greatest History Attraction I think they might be right.  If you're ever in South Eastern Michigan try to see Greenfield Village & Henry Ford Museum.

Project 365 - Week 23

Project 365 button designed by

Sunday, May 29 through Saturday, June 4
Chris & Oskar were hanging outside in the gorgeous chairs my dad made for us.
My mom called me Monday morning & said her friend was getting rid of a leather couch a recliner.  Our furniture was literally shredded, torn & held together with duct tape.  We were thrilled to spend the day off picking up some decent furniture.  John David & Chris are relaxing after wrestling furniture for hours in the heat.
Oskar has a new favorite spot on a footstool that came with the furniture.  It's perfect for watching out the window.  You can see the remnants of our old couch by the curb.  Bye-bye horrible, frat house, furniture!
Wednesday & Thursday, no pics.

One of the few roses that has bloomed so far with all this rain.  It's about a day past it's best.  Sounds like me, lol!

Oskar & Chris in a pillow pile.

Stop on over to Sara's blog to check out all the other 365 participants.  It's not too late to join in!
