Oh My Toe, My Toe, My Toe

Hurts, Hurts, Hurts! I hurt my toe a few years ago doing a balancing act trying to water my hanging baskets and my toe made a SNAPING noise and that was it, no big deal. Well for the last year or so its been giving me hell! It will occassionally lock up and then goes away quickly. For the last few weeks, its been locking up several times a day and it is rather hard to walk. Did I mention it hurts like HELL when it locks up. Anyways, I made an appointment last week for this morning. The Dr. said it was tendonitis?? So he gave me a BIG fat injection of cortisone in the knuckle of my big toe. It burned like fire and then went numb! Well, 2 hours later, I can barely walk it hurts so damn bad. I am to call the office if it is not better in a week. Okay, how am I suppose to finish my shopping if my toe is going to hurt for the next week? or clean my house for Christmas? I guess I'll survive, I always do!

P.s. Yes, I know I need a pedicure! Maybe Santa will bring me a gift card! Hint! Hint!

What Blue Are You?

I saw this on another site. So just for fun, I did it and its pretty much right on.
You are Ocean Blue

You're both warm and practical. You're very driven, but you're also very well rounded.
You tend to see both sides to every issue, and people consider you a natural diplomat.

My Christmas Tree

Here are some pictures of my tree this year. Up until a few days ago it only had lights and its still missing its topper! I am usually extremely picky about how the tree looks but this year I just didn't give a shit! I have done my tree in pink and gold for the last 6 years. My mother in law has given me some really neat ornaments over the years. Here are a few of my favorites. However, some ornamens did not make it out of the storage boxes!

Bloggy Makeover!

Many of you may have notice my blog has a new look. I owe it all to Heather, she is doing blog makeovers for a fee for those of us not capable. She is also in the process of adopting from China and all proceeds go towards the adoption. I think she did a fabulous job. I gave her a few ideas of what I liked and she nailed it! Thank You, Thank You, Thank You Heather for doing a great job. I just hope I don't keep screwing it up! For more info on her blog makerovers see her logo at the bottom right side of this page or visit her at "Digging a Hole to China".

Referral Updates

Referrals were sent out last week for families who were logged in by September 8th. You can see some of the referrals at RQ site they are so cute!. Ours is 11-5 so we are getting closer every day. Duane and I and my mom had our finger prints redone last week and I anticipate we will be redoing our I-600 form sometime after the first of next year. I was hoping for a referral so many different time now, I dare not guess when we might get our referral. It is looking like the referrals are getting longer and longer every month. We will have been waiting 13 months on Tuesday and I am preparing myself for an 18 month wait. Thats all the info I have on the adoption. So please keep us in your prayers for a speed up in referrals and the health and safety of Karlee.

Birthday Celebrations!

This weekend we celebrated the birthdays of my husband Duane and friends Laurie and Robert at a little restaraunt/bar called Aurora's out in St. Hedwig, Texas. Beer and food were plentyful and most of us were not feeling too good today, myself included! Its been a quite some time since we have stayed out to 2 AM. My mom was our designated driver, she had a good time talking to my old friends. We had apoximately 75 people that showed up. We sure missed those who could not make the party. Good food, karoke, beer and fun was had by all.
