Bullet Points….my favorite

  • Bubba and his casting – ALL DONE.  NO MORE.  He got his final cast off on Tuesday and HOLY WOW!  You can totally see the difference in how he walks – no tip toe walking at all!  It’s remarkable. I am so glad that we did it!  There is still a funky gait, but the doc said that will go away.  He walked for 6 weeks in a cast – he needs time to make his body walk rhythm.  (Think that you normal walk 1-2, 1-2, 1-2…with a cast on you walk – 1-TWOOOO, 1-TWOOOOO)  Make sense?  And there is a tiny amount of atrophy in the muscle, but again, 6 weeks in the cast, it’s to be expected.

  • For those of you following the saga of my diseased uterus – I met with Dr. J this past Monday.  His opinion was that I should avoid surgery, even a laparoscopic one, if at all possible.  He then countered and said if I told him in no uncertain terms that I did not want to attempt my other option, a IUD, that he would schedule the surgery.  We went over pro’s and con’s and I decided to give the IUD a chance.  Let me tell ya, so far I LOVE IT.  He told me to not get it into my head that it would change the current visit of Aunt Flo and that I needed to give it 3 months before I rendered my decision.  He said if after 3 months it’s not made my monthly visits with the witch, FLO, that he would then go the hysterectomy route.  Let me tell – by Monday afternoon – I was already noticing a change.  Tuesday I actually went out of the house with a tiny little liner and NON BLACK PANTS!!!  I was un freaking believable!  So – as of now, I am a happy lady.  Obviously if May’s visit with the witch is bad – you’ll head about it.
  • As I’ve mentioned in the past, I’m all about small, local businesses.  I’m so excited because I’ve got a new one to add to my Amy’s List.  Efird’s Lawncare.  Garnald Efird and I grew up in the same church.  As I remind him, he’s a couple of years older than me.  He started his own business in the past year and is doing a fabulous job.  He lives in the neighborhood behind ours – so I’d occasionally see him out with his FOUR boys.  Anyway – He’s now helping me with some yard needs and I have to tell ya….he is a work horse!  I’m so very impressed and his prices are so reasonable!  I give him the Amy’s List seal of approval and would highly recommend him!!!!  (No, i do not get paid to say great things about the businesses I use or recommend…)  You can find his contact info on my Amy’s List page. 
  • No big plans this weekend – Soccer is on the menu and getting some much needed housework DONE!!!

The weather, as always, has really depressed me this week!  I feel so bad for everyone that attempted a beach vacation – because as I understand it, unless you were down in South Florida, you had the crazy rain and cold that has torn threw the Southeast. 

I am ready to be in my flipflops & pedicured all up (I know, that’s not really a word)!!!  I love it when it’s warm enough to be comfortable in jeans, tshirts and flops!



Don’t know about you – but after the long cold months of hiding in boots – I always feel like my feet look like this.

Don’t look to long at the picture – it’s so gross.

My meeting with my doctor has been moved to Monday morning at 9:10. Dr. J’s nurse, (Amy-such a great name) has been fabulous this past week getting me needed information and getting me this early earlier appointment.  I am desperate for some sort of final plan.  I hate living in limbo…..

Enjoy the final weekend of Spring Break… does look like things are on the up-swing….temperature wise at least!!!!
