Well we heard today that the hubbys company is changing insurance companys yeah !!

Well all the employees heard today that the company my husband works for is changing insurance companys and we are totally stoked because the last company they had would
not cover me and my husband refused to give them any of our hard earned money because
if they are not going to cover the spouse then we dont want them . Now hopefully this new
company will cover me if they dont then we go again down the road of the un insured and believe
me folks when I say there are plenty of us (the uninsured ) out there . I know please dont come at me with how dangerous that is believe me i know but when you have a choice of keeping a roof over your head or an insurance card in your wallet , that roof comes first .

All is well and have been sick this whole past wknd

Man I was sick saturday and sunday and still not one hundred percent today and I am hoping that I will feel half way normal soon . my bgs have been all over the place and it is driving me crazy and cant get a lock or a hold on it . Does that make sense ? see I dont even know if Im making sense . LOL !! You know it is a bad day if you ask yourself if you are making sense ? LOL !! I starting feeling nauseous saturday when we returned home from yard saling and then it hit me like a ton of bricks and I hit the bed quicker than you could say jackie robinson . and was sick all day sunday too . stayed in the bed more than I was out of it . Today I kind of want to hit the bed too but am trying to put it off for as long as possible . Oh well so much for that thought I will now proceed to the bed and hope all is well with everyone .

I think this will be a busy weekend !!

Im going to the vet saturday and let them look at the little girl anyway just to make sure all is okay . Yes ,yes I am a worry wort . LOL !! I am reading a wonderful book called when madeline was young by jane hamilton . If you have never read any of her books i urge to do so . I think they are thought provoking and really good . I have several authors I like and several I dont but that is me . Im still working on a name for mims little pockets that she creates. Some people floor me with their creativity and I just am in awe of those people . me who does not have a creative bone in their body just stands in awe .The closest I come to creativity is making my own envies (envelopes ) out of magazine pages . so this weekend I have some books to mail and some grocery shopping to do and you name it , I probably have to do it this weekend oh well have a wonderful day and as always be careful out there among them english and negative ghost rider .

No surgery for doggie yeah !!

Well we found out that the doggy no longer has to have surgery the cyst dried up and fell off and there is just a small dot there now where it fell off . God must have know we really did not have the money for surgery and it would have put a burden on our credit card , although we would have done but now we dont have too Yeah !! God is good . I feel so blessed and so lucky . I also got some wonderful mail today but I will wait to post that some other day and those people who sent me that wonderful mail know who they are and Im very lucky to be blessed with such good friends who treat me better than my family. People I have never met but yet I feel as though I know them very well . I love all of my friends written friends and internet friends and blogger friends . I wish I could meet them all and get to know them in person but sadly I dont think that will ever happen , but you never know . Okay well enough as always be careful out there among them english and negative ghost rider .

today is fathers day

I dont have a picture of my father . I really dont I have looked everywhere for one and still cannot find one . I will make sure to ask my brother if he has one when i hear from him again . So I was going to do a fathers day post and now with no picture that is a little bit impossible . I will tell you my father was a good guy but with nine kids his time was spread a little thin but I do remember him teaching us girls how to fly fish and how to fish period and how much peace it brought in my mind . I can remember that of the peace and the beautiful surroundings and sharing lunch and drinks and making a day of it .There is just something about eating food outside that makes it taste better . That is what I remember about my dad . I wish I had a picture . Well again be careful out there among them english and negative ghost rider .

Today is a better day

I want to thank Laura one of my d mom blog followers . She reminded me that since I have diabetes that at least I know how to control the pups dx . This is very true , this is the bright side and i was just telling someone lese the other day that God does not shut one door without opening ten more and God used Laura to open that door . God used Laura to make me see that he in his infinite wisdom take care of things and how this sweet dog could have gone to someone that could have put him in a shelter when they found out his diagnosis . But instead God chose me for this dog and his care . So as Amy said there you go d mom another work in progress . Oh my . be careful out there among them english and negative ghost rider .

Lab results are in

Well it seems that I was right in suspecting that the dog here my little boy as he is more commonly referred to ,is a diabetic . We got called with the results this am . I had been suspecting for a while since I know the signs in humans and figured that they could not be too far off from the dog right ? I was right and he does get like grumpy when he does not get enough food and then he gets shaky and he has to be warmed up with a blanket . you know I used to think my human kids were work these fur babies are proving to be quite a job themselves . Oh well be careful out there among them english and negative ghost rider .

a decrease in my insulin needs

Okay this is really puzzling and someone else was talking about this on her blog and i got to thinking jeeze that same thing is happening to me . My insulin needs are decreasing and I cannot figure out why . Now is this the point where a rational person would say hey maybe your pancreas is kicking in again ? , hardly after this long . Or it seems like every summer we get out and do things and our need for insulin goes down . I dont know but it sure is puzzling . I have yet to get this figured out and then by the time I do I will be old and gray and ready for the rocker LOL !!! Geeze there are some days that I feel Im ready for the rocker now LOL !! I also just found out i have read 93 books since the start of this year which means I am way ahead of schedule on the 150 books goal I have set for myself . Im so glad I might even surpase that 150 thing and move onto 200. Who knows right ? Oh well not much else to blog about and remember be careful out there among them english and negative ghost rider . Also please pray for my little doggie girl as she is scheduled for surgery on the 30th of june she has a benign growth that needs to be removed and Im not real comfortable about her being put under he being so small and all but it needs to be done . so please pray for the little gal

The Touchdown Jesus

Yes they are going to rebuild but they are going to make it bigger and wow I cannot imagine this statue any bigger but it is a landmark . It is located In Monroe Ohio which is right down the interstate from me . It was sad to hear it had burned down and then it was good to hear that they will rebuild yeah !!! now onto my patio garden , my tomatoes now have a flower bud on one of them and I could not be happier . The yarrow and the dwarf sunflower is doing wonderful . I will be sure to post pictures when the dwarf sunflowers finally decides to bloom . Now onto the tomatoes , I have never done tomatoes well in the ground , however in pots my tomatoes do beautifully . I think I can control the moisture and the bug problem better in pots than in the ground . I cannot wait to taste a fresh tomatoe off the plant that I grew . Anyways be careful out there among them english and negative ghost rider .

Nature in all her glory

Sadly this statue was struck by lightning last night and it crumbled to the ground and is now destroyed . I hope they rebuild it and I dont know how long that will take or if they will rebuild it . I have just been thinking wow this morning and how much money this must have cost built yrs ago and how much it will cost to replace it . It was made out of concrete or marble I do believe . Im not sure I have only seen it from the road . Oh well to all of those who commented that they love this I will keep you updated .

These are the moments I live for

These are the moments I live for . Watching these two remind me of the old disney story the fox and the hound . LOL !! This chihuahua slays me the way he is with the arnold (quaker parrot). Arnold seems to hop along as soon as kahlua starts moving . He absoloutly love Kahlua and vice versa . I wish all the world could get along like this . I am so very blessed to have two animals that really like each other like this and are so willing to forget that they are a different species . I dont think they care really .

Look at what I found on one of my adventures or so I like to call them

Well today Im not so good . Went on little ride this am and look at what I found .

Yes folks that is an actual water wheel the kind that mills use and in fact this is a mill that is still in operation and even has a restaraunt with it . I thought it was an excellent find and had I not felt ill we would have stayed and had lunch but it seems I get car sick when I ride in the car too long . But anyways we will go back soon and find this again and eat at that restaraunt because it had some wonderful smells coming from it . Well hope you enjoyed this blog post . Just remember be careful out there among them english and negative ghost rider .

Im so peed off at mr/ms anonymous !!

I just read a fellow d moms blog about someone who left a comment on her blog about how dare she criticize a medical instution who had previously treated her son . Well until you mr/ms anonymous deal with the big d yourself , (which god forbid you never have to ) you have no right to say anything about a disease you know nothing about obviously and you dont even have the guts to put a name to your comment . What are you hiding ? do you work for this institution ? sounds like it to me . Let me say this to you I think you are a chicken shit , spineless weaking who hides behind a computer screen ,who would not have the guts to say the stuff that you did in person . I dont pay much creedence to ppl who dont put their names with their comments . Like I say hiding . I dont and will not banty words with fools . Man my butt is on fire .

Okay changed my blog a little and loving the look even better

Well today is a better day and happy to wake up after a very rough night to say the least . My shoulder blade would not quit hurting last night . I finally fell asleep around 11 or maybe 12 and now Im totally worn to a frazzle . It seems like lately everything hurts lol. Could it be old age creeping up on me ? I would think I would have to be hit by a car to feel better just kidding of course would not wish that on anyone . I finally changed my blog page up a little , just a refresher if you will . something , anything to liven it up a little . Well Im currently reading blue water from a manette ansay and you all must read this book . It is absoloutly wonderful . Im still working toward the goal of reading 150 books for the year . I did 100 last yr and will have to have this accomplished by december 31 ,2010. Yes that is what I said 150 books it is not hard to do at all and if you put your mind to it you can acomplish anything . I am a true believer in faith and try , try and try again . Oh well folks that is about it for today and be careful out there among them english and negative ghost rider . I find my last line very befitting since im close to amish country and did you know that the largest population of amish is in Ohio ? It is a fact look it up . Oh well enough rambling . Take care all .

went out again and did some more exploring

Is this not beautiful and god in all his glory . I just love finding things like this .

The second pic is of the courthouse in downtown troy ohio . I love old courthouses because to me their architecture in my opinion cannot be matched these days at all and the quality and craftsmanship is beyond compare . I hope you enjoy viewing these as I did taking them .

Look at this it is amazing to me

When I look at this place I wonder how much it cost to build this thing and get it exactly right and wow then I think what an awesome piece of work . I definately think the guy or guys and or gals who built this thing must have had quality and pride in their work . Yes that is right , it is a church that has this wonderful jesus statue out in front of it . Tell me what you think .

what I did with my memorial day .

Hi folks this picture is of the entrance to the jungle jim store .I like the display but the store I could do without quite pricey. but the display was cute and had to get a pic of it .
The second photo that looks like a telephone booth is the restrooms and I thought those were kinda of odd and had never seen anything like those before . All in all I guess the trip was worth it cause of the photos I got . Oh well that is why I did with my memorial day .
