I remember being at church the following Sunday. Both my husband and I broke down in tears sobbing. Our son was in the military stationed in Hawaii. We never thought our son would serve during a war. He spent two years in the Middle East. Two of the longest years ever. Our emotions were always on edge. Thanks to God that he returned to us. I must say that his current government job is just as dangerous. I am spending the night with his family tonight for that reason.
God bless all our soldiers and first responders. They are the real heroes.
I wanted to make this a positive post since my last one was such a downer. Sorry, but it was important to share.
I seem to be getting "signs" today that are meant for me. Geez, I'm not one that can predict the future, believe me, but I feel like there are signs out there. Not all of the time but just sometimes.
So, I turn on the new Meredith show for the first time today. What's up first is a little boy that had H1N1. It ravished his body and he had to have 77 surgeries including a kidney transplant from his mother. He survived, thank goodness. Remember back, my dear cousin died of H1N1. I am taking this as a sign to remind you to get your flu shot. I know, there are some of you that refuse to do that.....don't send me hate comments, please. Just think of your families if you should get this horrible thing.
Okay, now there is a balloon artist on her show. What the heck.......that's what makes me think that sign was for me.
A few thoughts about Hollywood........I can't believe Meredith is on the same time as the View. Hmmmmm, bet that didn't go over well. I can't believe they let Jennie and Sherry go at the same time. I never liked Jennie before, but grew to really like her on the View. It was just plain sad that Sherry was sent packing. Now, about Joan Rivers.............I know she was an icon but I always thought of her as mean spirited. As far as they endoscopy center being under fire about the procedure they did on her, when you have an upper endoscopy they take biopsies. I have had many of these tests including biopsies of my esophagus and stomach. I think if the doctor saw something concerning, the biopsy "probably" should have been done. I said "should" have. If Joan had cancer of the vocal cords, she would have a terrible time accepting that diagnosis. Okay, just my thoughts.
Remember the last showing we had........that we were sure the people didn't come. I don't know if our realtor is just trying to make us feel better...........BUT that person supposedly wants to make an offer on the contingency of their house selling. What? I have a hard time believing it, since she only looked once.....but it does boost the moral. Sorry for all the ........ I think all of my communications in writing has left me. Anyhoooooo, we have another showing Saturday. Not the same person. So, why am I sitting here doing this when I need to get things done if I want to go to the Fair. You loose your "let's do this" after awhile, but this could be the one. I want to just say, if they call for a second showing we will really shine things up.
I got new glasses. Yeah, finally. I was afraid to go to the cheapie places or those advertised on TV, I think my eyes are important. I did choose cheaper frames. I mostly need the for close up but like the transition lenses. Easier for my eyes to adjust to close up and far away.
I also had things down to my little BUG this week. She has had a lot of new things lately. I covered the dent with a magnetic flower that I had. It looks cute instead of a boo boo.
Last but not least. Tomorrow is our 44th anniversary. How can I even be that old. No big plans unfortunately. So ready to take a trip. Hopefully when this house thing is over we can.
Have a great week-end. I will share pictures with you the next time.
