Random Thoughts

Thanks for praying for grandma...she came through the surgery fine. She will be in the hospital for a week, while they pump her full of antibiotics. She has a spacer (coated with very strong antibiotics) taking the place where her knee should be, so she will have to keep her leg straight for 8 weeks in hopes that the infection clears. At the end of 8 weeks, if the infection has cleared they will put in a new knee.

On Sunday, I asked my cousin to take our family picture...instead of a picture he took a movie...I tried to make a picture from the movie...this is what it looks like. I am a little sad...I scrapbook and I need a family picture for the Easter page! Aren't you sad for me? HA HA! I do have some of the girls...guess it will be one more holiday where Mommy's picture isn't in the scrapbook.

I have been doing a bit of shopping over the last few weeks (shhhh, don't tell my husband) and as I did laundry last week I realized there was a great need to clean out my closet or the new clothes weren't going to fit. I cleaned all the winter stuff out...took out all the spring stuff that I won't ever actually wear...and now I have about 2 feet worth of rack left...HMMM what should I do about that? After I finished my closet I moved to my oldest daughter's closet. When she got up the next morning she told me we needed to go shopping, because her closet was empty...I have trained her well!

psssst. . . wear the same thing next Sunday, and have someone take your picture. Voila! Easter pic for the scrapbook, we are none-the-wiser!

Your grandma's surgery sounds AWFUL, for the record. I'll be praying that she get a knee! YIKES!

It wouldn't be the first time I have 'staged' a picture for the scrapbook. What is worse is when I find stickers that I like and then try to "make" the occasion happen so that I can use the stickers! I will try something to that effect this time...but I am not sure I can get Robert back into the shirt...he said it was the worst one yet! (He never complained about the pink one he has worn for two years but way!)

Something bothers me when men wear pink. But it seems to be the hottest trend! Geez.. But, I'm glad your Grandmother has came out of surgery well. I will pray that the infection passes. I'm glad you had a good holiday.

I didn't get any Easter pictures either. Mine was grumpy baby. It's the first year with no easter pic.

I guess we will both be staging some pictures just for the scrapbook...otherwise we might just have to journal in that space! :)

You know, I know what you mean about "no pictures of mommy in the scrapbook". My kids will think I never held them!!
