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.
