Great View

I had to go have a MRI last week.  It was on the new wing of the hospital.  This is the view above the MRI.  It was just so pretty that I had to take a picture of it.


Hello.  I haven't been on line this week.  I am hoping to catch up tonight and tomorrow. 

This is my one and only son.  He came home a couple of weeks ago for a surprise visit.  It was great having him home for a few days.  It is hard too believe that he will be home for his summer break from college in a little over 3 months. 

I spent today in the kitchen cooking.  I put up chicken nuggets, 10 individual chicken breast, made vanilla ice cream, butterscotch lava cakes, and dinner.  I also have 2 chicken breasts soaking in the refrigerator for chicken fajitas and a flank steak in the crockpot.  Tomorrow, I have ten pounds of hamburger meat to put up.  I am planning on making 3 lbs of meatballs, 2 small lasagnas, spaghetti sauce, and ???  I am still trying to figure out the other 3-4 pounds.

I am feeling so overwhelmed.  I am having some trouble dealing with the meds.  Between the pain killers from the nerve block and general changes in my regular meds, I am a little out of it. 

Then I have gotten behind on my deep cleaning around the house.  I have been doing the basic stuff but I am beginning to notice some things that need to get done.  Cleaning around the baseboards, cleaning out corners, decluttering, spot cleaning the carpets, etc.

I have been doing a lot of surfing lately.  I have so many new recipes I want to try and old ones that we haven't had in a while.  My menu planning has been scattered.  I  make a plan and then I add something at the last minute.  Then the next week, I haven't completed the menu but I still want some of the things on it but I want to add more.....It is just getting out of hand.

I am going to spend the next few days trying to get things back into control.  Because it is all about control and organizing.  If I don't get my list made and stick to it.  It will just get worse. 

To that end, I am going to pick a room each day and I am going to thoroughly clean it.  By Monday or Tuesday, I should have that taken care of.  I am also going to make a detailed menu and try to stick to it.  In between, I am still going to make the time to stamp and take some photos.  When all of that is done, I am going to be over some of my medical problems, and I want to get back to exercising.

Thank you for listening.

Weekly Review

Monday - I had a Radio Frequency Nerve Ablation on my neck.  Hopefully I will see some relief from the migraines soon.  I listed my Menu Planner.

Tuesday - I am thinking about adding an organizing page.  I am still thinking about it,maybe over the next few weeks.

Wednesday - I changed to look of the recipe page.  I hope everyone likes the new look.  I don't know how long I will leave it.  Purple has never been one of my favorite colors, but I do like it for now.

Friday -  With all the downtime this week, I did alot of web surfing, so there was lots of Menu Possibilities this week.  I got a little behind on posting my Photo a Day pictures, but I did get them posted.

The weather this week was just strange.  We got snow Sunday and Monday, rain Tuesday and Wednesday and then snow again Friday and Saturday.  As I write this we have about 4-6 inches on the ground.  I hope it stays around long enough for me to get some pictures tomorrow after work.

I have been working on my Valentine's Day cards this week.  You can see all of them over on the stamping page.

I hope everyone has a good week.

I ended up having some pain from the nerve ablation.  I have been off and on pain killers all week.  I am beginning to feel better.  Hopefully next week will be a good week.  Just in time to come off my regular meds for a month and then to have the other nerve ablation done.

Now for the thoughts of the week.....

1)  Do you have a favorite TV show that you hate to miss?  My niece's is the Biggest Loser.  I think mine is Grey's Anatomy. 

2)  We are snackers at this house....sweet, salty, crunchy, spicy, etc.  It doesn't matter.  Do you have a favorite snack?  Right now I am craving chocolate.  I am trying to stay away from it but it is really hard.  What do you do to stop craving some thing?

3) Our weather has been so strange this week.  Sunday we got snow, then rain on Tuesday and Wednesday and now more snow tomorrow. 

I hope everyone has a great weekend.
