"the nicest and the sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens, but just those that bring simple pleasure, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string."

well, I've had computer issues, camera issues, and just plain issues that have kept me from posting the 200th post winner. So here goes:

Coffee Bean! the judge has spoken and your words about your grandma hit a soft spot with him. Congratulations!!

AND...~Peach~ you are the winner of the 'square root day prize.' Congratulations!!

This was fun. I love giving away stuff so I think I will do it more often. Winners please e-mail me your address so I can get your prize to you. As I said, I am having computer-camera issues so I can't post pictures of the prizes. Coffee Bean---you have won a lovely silver bracelet adorned with garnet and marcasites (my personal fav) from Circle of Hope. Circle of Hope proceeds benefit cancer research so check them out if you get a chance. And ~Peach~, i've got a gift certificate for you to Mimi's Cafe.

Last night I was sitting on the sofa, all nice and cozy near the fireplace, watching my favorite show "House Hunters." My husband plopped down next to me and I turned to ask him why he was still up. I thought he had already gone to bed. He replied that he had already gone to sleep and now he was leaving for work. I slept for 7 hours in front of the t.v. without moving a stitch. The fireplace was still on, the house-lights still on, the poor dog had not been put out to do her thing...gah! So what did I do? I kissed hubs good-bye, turned off all the lights and t.v., let the dog out, then in, and went down the hall, crawled into bed and slept for another 6 hours. And I'm still tired today. I swear every time I sit down I start to fall asleep. Hello spring.

I got a call this morning from my neurosurgeons office and they have an opening this week. I was on a cancellation list. Sooo I've had to run all over town today getting all my MRI's and X-rays, my EMG's and Bone Scans....awww God I hope he can find an answer to my back and leg problems. I really don't know where to turn after this.

I am working on just being 'me' more, as you all suggested. It's not easy and it's a little scary for me. I can't think of a time when it was o.k. for me to be me so have patience.

  1. Congrats to Coffee Bean and to Peach!! How exciting to win!!!

    I know what the reason is for sleeping and we are both on it and I do the same thing. I still wake up tired. Sometimes, I feel I am sleeping my life away, cause when I am awake, everyone else is asleep..LOL..I hope your doc appt goes great and you find out what you need.


    God Bless~
