God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time; Enjoying one moment at a time; Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace; Taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it; Trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His Will; That I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with Him Forever in the next. Amen.
--Reinhold Niebuhr
"Friendship is the hardest thing in the world to explain. It's not something you learn in school. But, if you haven't learned the meaning of friendship, you really haven't learned anything."
---Muhammad Ali

"We are driven to create at this deep wordless level of the soul because we are all fashioned in the image of a God who is an Artist." - Michael Card, Scribbling in the Sand.

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!!!! Sabrina and Brian!!!!! I hope you have a wonderful day. Please let me know how Cortes surgery goes. I hope his ear heals quickly!

As you can tell today is my daughter and son-in-laws 5th Anniversary. And their little girl is due to be born any day! My mom was hoping that Mikaela would be born on their anniversary but it doesn’t look like Mom will get her wish.

Cortes their boxer is also having surgery on his ear today. He has the most terrible time with his ears, he shook the one ear so hard he ruptured a blood vessel so now the vet has to go in and fix it. That’s the reason for the note about his surgery.

Tonight is the release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows, how many are all excited about that! I know I am!!!!!! The 7th and final chapter of the Harry Potter series it’s exciting and sad at the same time. I think people either love or hate this series, there isn’t really an in-between. If you like them you can’t wait for the next book or movie. If you don’t like them you really can’t understand what all the hype is about.

There are 5 in our office that absolutely loves the book and we all have it on order and will be getting our books tonight. The rest of the office can’t understand why we are so excited or why we stayed up and saw the midnight showing of the Order of the Phoenix.

Not much going on I have my entire house cleaned except for my kitchen I’ll do it tonight and then get my shower before I head in to get my book. That way I can stay up all night and read. I am totally in love with my Dyson Animal vacuum I can’t believe how clean it makes my carpet and floors feel. I ran it in my scrap room last night and the stuff it picked up was unbelievable I didn’t know there was that mush stuff down in that carpet. It found brads and eyelets that I had dropped and couldn’t find along with dog and cat hair of course.

Jake’s favorite place to sleep during the day is under the fan in the scrap room. I suppose since that room is small and has 2 air conditioning vents it stays very cool; and Jake is always hot with all the fur he has.

I did have a doctor’s appointment today the RA doc doesn’t need to see me for 6 whole months I’m so excited. My meds are stable and my RA is as stable as he can get it using the current meds. I’ve not been dealing with as many infections since I went on the once a week shot of Enbrel; which is very good. I’m still having some swelling and some pain but that’s typical. As long as I can continue to function that’s all I care about. Until someone has lived with RA and Fibro they have no idea what life is like. It’s a whole different life then any normal person. But, life goes on and you take it one day at a time and the pain one day at a time. Shoot I didn’t even know my thyroid was so messed up because I’m so used to the exhaustion and constant pain. LOL!!! Guess I better listen a little better to my body!

Ok enough rambling…I guess I named my blog well since I seem to ramble along.

Once again Happy Anniversary Sabrina and Brian.

Love and Hugs,
