Wanted to let you know....this and that.....

I wanted to give ya'll a heads up. Today on Oprah the story of Christian and Stephanie Neilson will be featured. They were in a devastating plane crash in August of 2008. Stephanie has a blog entitled NieNie Dialogues here. She is a fascinating woman. Her and her husband are still recovering but both are home now and raising their four young children.

Her resiliency has been astounding. She is a clever writer and a beautiful woman. So check them out today.

Also, you may have noticed I haven't been blogging much this week, well sweet husband is on vacation this week, after a very lonnnnnnnnggggggggg summer of working 7 days a week. I am so thankful to have him home, but it has not left me with a lot of time to blog.

I have several things I want to share with you...........and a reveal ~~ yep, but its a secret. Hopefully I'll get that posted next week (if not before). I have a couple more things to do and then I'll be ready to reveal it.

And then Dak ran a personal best at the Meet at the Springfield Underground last night. We were so proud of him. It was so windy and chilly, but the kids did GREAT!!!!! Their next Meet isn't until next Thursday, so that gives them some time to click away at those times. GO CLEVER BLUE JAYS!!!

Ummm let's see, my tooth (or lack there of =) is doing much better. It hurt a lot this morning, but they said to expect the third day to be the worst. It is now feeling better though. YAY!!! I will go next week to have impressions made for a partial to go in my mouth where these teeth used to be. YAY looking forward to getting that done and in place, should take about 10 days.

I just got my tubs out of our winter clothes. Yep it is that time of year around here. I looked at the seven day forecast and after tomorrow, we are not suppose to have a day that is even out of the 50's for a high for a week and lots of rain. So yes, when the weather man says its time to break out the winter coats it must be time.

I also have my memory verse, but I haven't posted on it yet either, but check out my side bar for it.

Okay well I'm off to have my bone density scan. YAY well see how I'm doing in the bone department. Hopefully good!!! I know this has been a lot of randomness, but just thought I'd share what's been going on in our corner of the world.

Love you all, have a Blessed day,


  1. Hey Sweetie, thanks for sharing the "this and that's" with us. You are precious. Love and prayers.

  2. Dawn,

    Love the this and that post! Sometimes you just don't know how to word all the little bits and pieces of stuff you need to share. You did it well!

    SO glad that you are feeling better after your tooth and hoping that your bone scan goes great!

    Love and Hugs ~ Kat
