What a couple of day! My husband has something wrong with his knee, his good knee that has not been operated on and is flat of his back. My son (oldest has been a little mischeivous), my Dad is getting weaker and just lost his billfold yesterday during his trip to the clinic for chemotherapy with something like 1,500 cash.....which makes me think about a time when you could carry a billfold with cash and know that when it was found it would be returned to you with the cash. It just seems important to men my Dad's age (75) to be able to carry their billfold with money. He had absolutely no place that he would spend that money yesterday and has been told over and over, Dad you don't need to carry that much money...but yet we have lost a billfold with a lot of cash. I am praying that some good person will turn the billfold in or that Dad might have lost it at home or in the car...although they have searched and searched for it. It was only money!
Later and hugs, P

Thanking God for Praying Friends

My Dad was admitted to the hospital yesterday to control pain of his progressing cancer. Gee I never thought I would be faced with a parent with cancer and it has been 3 years my Dad has fought lung cancer. My Dad, the big guy who always bounced back from anything was unable to lay on a table for a test due to extreme pain. I posted on my facebook last night the status and to please pray for us....within minutes I had a host of friends and family sending up prayers. Dad was tried on a new pain medication at 9 pm and he slept so good last night and is still snoozing at 7:30 this morning. Thank you God for giving Dad a good night's rest and for praying friends and family.
Love to all, P

Fall Weather making me Blue

I usually love this time of year, but it has gotten so cold that it seems we have just skipped fall and went straight to winter. I hate to sleep with socks, but cannot get my feet warm and hate turning on the heat so early. One good think about wearing socks to bed is when you lotion your feet it makes them feel so good the next day.
I also have gotten so very bad news about my Father who has been battling lung cancer for 3 years. He has a progression with his metastasis now in the left lung and the mets have gotten bigger in the adrenal bed. Please pray that they can give him something to help slow the progression. I had a breakdown and let myself cry after getting home from spending time with the radiologist reviewing the CT scan. I know that death will eventually happen to all of us and that I have to lose my parents, but that does not make what we are facing any easier.
I do smile at some postings of one of my favorite girls, now married with a baby girl at
daveandbritplusone. Baby K is growing and has the sweetest smile a baby girl could ever have.
Love, P

Wow, talk about growing older, my husband turned 59 years old today. Poor guy doesn't feel well. He has a lot of breathing problems thanks to smoking most of his life and although he no longer smokes his lungs are not what they should be. There is something about this time of year that gets him feeling really bad and he usually ends up in the hospital. He actually canceled a motorcycle ride due to is woes. We had him a nice little dinner at home with ice cream banana split cake, spaghetti and garlic bread...thanks to my Corey for helping with the shopping and making dinner. Later, Miss P

How can I be this old and still have acne breakouts!

Being from a small town, does not allow for me to spend time in a store that has all products that I love. Well with a recent trip last week I got to spend a little time in Ulta. I needed some new OPI polish, some of that stuff you drip on to make your nails dry fast, and hair spray. I don't think I have ever used a complete botttle of hair care products, only to find that when I did my hair last week and went to spray on my Sebastian Shaper hair spray there was not one spray left causing my hair to be flatter and more out of control than usual. Since I was at my brother's house I was out of luck as I am not sure he even has a hair brush at his house. I actully splurged on a new concealer for my dark circles both above and below my eyes. The funny thing was after I got my necessites, I found myself following an older lady with pretty skin around the store as she carefully selected her face care products. It seems that no matter what I use, I still have breakouts when stressed like I did when I was 14 years old. The amazing thing was this lady did not purchase any big name products, but most every thing in her basket could be purchased at Wal Mart, but I guess girls at any age just love shopping in a store dedicated to us. I also do not feel so bad now using my Ponds Moisturizer and can splure on that occasional 24.oo concealer that still does not hide my circles. Well someday I will figure out how to post pictures this this blog, until then find time to go on a just for you shopping trip, even if it is to your local Wal Mart.

I so totally do not know what I am doing and most all of the blogs I follow are written by very young, trendy, got it all together individuals. Well it seems like only yesterday day that I was very young, maybe not so trendy, and had it somewhat together. It just seems that the older one becomes the more you realize that you probably did not have it all together and probably never will. My blogs may be corny, but hopefully I will have fun doing this and will meet some fellow bloggers that have been there, done that also. I also look forward to following all of my young blogger friends as they journey through young adulthood.
