On the Mend

Thank you again for your prayers and concerns about our health. My finger is almost perfect. It began peeling on Wednesday. The Dr. said that was very normal. The Lord healed me! I am so grateful! I have met and heard of some people that had the same thing and it did not turn out as well for them.
Emily's ears seem well now too.
SK is still very congested sounding. The Dr said she had the down hill slide of a cold. She has a terrible sounding cough.

Thank you for telling me about putting my phone in a bag of uncooked rice. I took your advice, but it did not work. My phone was too long gone from water damage. I am back to an updated version of my old 13 year old phone. It cost $40. I just could not and would not pay $300 to replace my new fancy phone. This phone makes calls and takes calls. That is about it. ha ha!

I am so glad you are feeling better! God is the great physician! I am also glad to hear Emily's ears are better. I understand about SK's cough. My Mary-Kate (3 and 1/2 years old) coughed for 3 weeks. She had an antibiotic and everything, but I guess it had to run its course. She sounded awful and was she very grumpy for a while. I hope SK's cough stops soon and doesn't linger like MK's did.

Hey! Sorry to hear about your phone! I have an old one i can give you if that helps. I'm very happy you're not going to lose your finger!! Let's get together again soon!
One last thing...thank you for bringing the girls by on Halloween. They looked precious and I love seeing them...and you too!

Hey Laurie, we have all of our cell phones covered with our home/auto insurance carrier. Costs us about $20-$30 per phone per year... well worth it. The trick is knowing how much to insure them for since the phone companies don't really tell you how much it will cost to replace it if you lose it or break it or wash it not long after you buy it.

Just a thought.

This sounds crazy, but try pouring alcohol in your husband did it with his ipod and it worked like a charm:)

Glad you are well!!

Maybe I am wrong, but I don't remember life being so complicated when I was in middle school. Everything is so competitive now.  Maybe it was back then and I just didn't realize it. Sarah Kate started playing city league softball a couple of weeks ago.   We've been encouraged to get her private batting lessons. When I was in third grade I started playing softball and I just did it for fun!  No stress at all, as far as I can remember!  I just played.  I wasn't very good, but I liked it! Ha! Emily started band this year!  Before school started, I got a letter from the school district strongly encouraging "your band student to take instrument lessons."  WHAT?  I bought into it and got Emily private clarinet lessons (which she really enjoys)! But, what happened to learning as you go?  I never thought about taking private trumpet lessons when I started band. It seems like most parents are striving for their child to be THE BEST.  I guess that's a go

Something Good to Eat

Ever since Steve and I started dating, when we would go to Mississippi, his aunt would make the BEST ROAST IN THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!! Steve's Dad's side of the family gets together at his Granny's house for lunch every Sunday after church. The food is always sooo good!!!!!!!!!!!! I have always taken a liking to his Aunt Judy's roast. It really is the best roast I have ever had. When we were there on Labor Day weekend, my sister in law asked Aunt Judy for the recipe. Aunt Judy began naming all the ingredients. She said Ranch Dressing mix, and I bugged my eyes out and nearly chocked. I HATE RANCH DRESSING. I don't even like to be in the room with it. I had to focus on the word MIX....not the mayo and butter milk and sour cream that you add to it. Just typing those words makes me shudder. The recipe sounded awful as she rattled off the ingredients, but I promise, you have got to make this if you like a good roast. Trust me on this. Here it is: Get a tender chuck

Life in Pictures!

Emily is enjoying her first year in band.  I am very impressed with her playing skill! Sarah Kate was recently awarded the empathy award at her school.  She is very deserving of this! Here we are before the Cotillion Holly Ball.
