Have you seen it?


Last night i went to church and watched this wonderful movie. Not knowing exactly what it was about. I cried through it, it was just like my life and our marriage problems that we have had. We are going to buy the book. If you have not seen it then get it. I was always told that you can not have a marriage without god and i really did not know that meaning until last night.

Spring Cleaning

I have been doing some major spring cleaning. Im no longer worried about studing for school even though i do have my national registry test but i have no idea when i will be taking that yet. So today i worked on bryers room, i will post before and after shots. I am not quite done yet.
Tonight we went and visited FIL at the hospital. Sunday they moved him to detox because he is a very bad alcholic. He is doing good, still can not walk all that well we will have to get him a walker. They are talking about letting him go home tommarrow. So we will see how it goes. I am hoping any day now we will get our tax return back. We are not getting back as much as we usually get but oh well it will pay bills off. I am off to bed talk at ya later

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.

This week will be alittle short.

I did not bring equipment home from the firedepartment so i could study my practical skills for my test tonight.

I did not break open every chocolate in the box of chocolates that my hubby gave me for valentines day only to find out they were only the same.

I did not let my hubby, step dad, and son make my front yard a dirt bike track.

I did not find my check card laying on the side of the road in the town next to ours(well hubby actually found it while he was reading meters)

I did not just leave 5 no 6 loads of laundry in baskets by my chair because i was tired of folding for a while.

I did not win $34 at bingo friday night.

I did not go and freeze my butt off yesterday and watched the guys practice football.

I am not going to have a birthday party in a couple weeks when her birthday was actually january 1st

Just another day

I have not blogged in a week, so much has went on that when i get home from the hospital i go to bed. I think i have 5 more loads of laundry to do, i have done about 3-4 every night. Well my father-in-law is doing somewhat better. Yesterday they did a heart cath and found no blockage but he does have congestive heart failure(chf) and its not cureable. Usually you die from complications that arise from that like not being able to breathe and what. But he is not himself, if he makes it out of the hospital he will most likley need 24 hour care. We will not put him in a nursing home what so ever. He is still really working to breathe, which he has COPD, which we think is why he had the heart attack since his heart or brain was not getting enough oxygen. Just putting to much stress on his heart.
I thought i would share the story of last sunday because he was indeed very lucky.
For that last week he had really not been himself, telling us we would all miss him when hes gone. Well sunday he was having trouble breathing, breaking out in sweat. They put his oxygen on him and turned it up to 5 and still it was helping. Then about 2 hours later he stuck his head in the freezer door, when his girlfriend asked him what he was doing he looked at her and his lips were black. He was going into respiratory failure, usually you will just get cynosis but he hadn't got good O2 for a while. Well they loaded up and he finally agreeded to go the hospital. All the way there he was really trying to breathe. She pulled up to the ER entrence and they brought out a wheel chair and took him inside and then she went and parked the car. When she came back she no more said "im here honey bunch" and thats when it hit. he jumped about 2 feet out of the wheelchair, eyes rolled in the back of his head and he stiffened up just as you would a seizure. They rushed him back there and worked on him for about 15minuates. His heart went into asysotle, which is usually a rrthym of he heart that is not one they can get the person back. Somehow they did. put him on a ventalator and sent him to ccu. If it wasn't for being at the hospital he would have died, everything was timed perfect. Although he never wanted to be shocked or put on a ventalator.
Me and michael were in owasso at his football practice and finally my step-dad called us and nobody else had tried. so we hauled butt to bartlesville, which is a good 45min but i made it in 15 min prob lol.

He does have some brain damage that you can tell already, he raises his hands up and doesn't even know that he is doing it. He will ask where he is at and he also said that it was january 19, 1999. He is very slow and his right hand is drawn up. He reminds me alot of my grandpa when he had his massive heart attack and then ended up with dementia from brain damage.

I have to say we have some really great friend, people have babysat for us since we spend all day at the hospital and hubby took the whole week off. Everybody calls on the hour it seems like.
Well i am going, got to get ready to go to the hospital and sit with him while his wife goes to eat with her kids. We can't leave him alone cause he tries to get up.
I ll try to update more

Happy Birthday Bryer


My dear sweet baby boy(well not such a baby anymore), today is his 5th birthday. Seems like it was just yesterday i was in the hospital fixing to have him. I can't believe that he actually is 5. I don't know if i had told you guys but i had bryer when i was 16, just a junior in high school. Even though i was so young, i do not regret one minuate of it. My mom had given me up to DHS because i would not go and have a abortion or sell him to some people that would have given her money. No, how could of i have done that.
He is the most sweetest little boy you would ever meet. And was always so good as a baby. I remember wanting to cry his first day of PRE-K, especially the day he told me that i did not need to walk him inside that he can go by himself. As i watched him walk down the sidewalk into the school my eyes filled up with tears. Seeing him as a little young man.

Although he had his up and downs when he was alittle younger, like when i was 71/2 months pregnant with his sister and as we are driving down the highway he was throwing a fit and undid his car seat and bit my hand and would not let go of it. He was still just a precious little boy still growing.

And now look at him, riding a dirt bike and playing video games.

My little boy is still a baby in my eyes.

Not me monday

I did not let my children paint all over the dining room table, chairs, fabric, clothes and floor, nope not me

I did not go to my moms house for the superbowl just so i can eat stew, just because i did not feel like cooking.

I did not go to the bank of oklahoma atm and withdraw money just so i can get a 40% off coupon for hobby lobby

I did not got to hobby lobby 5 times last week.

I did not let my dog out of the back yard, just because the new neighbors across the keep getting mad about him running loose. (hey he keeps getting out of the back yard for some reason anyways)(plus them people don't like us)

I did not turn my husbands pager on scan yesterday to listen to all of the firedepartments out on grass fires since my house scanner is not working properly.

I did not bring home a sewing machine that was thrown in the trash by an older lady,(hey the sucker works great why not put it to good use!)

Well there you have it , its not much but if i think of some more i will post them.
