After the wedding shower we were suppose to drive back home, but Mommie was too tired! Instead of driving home, we got to go to Grandma's House!! YIPPIE!!!! Can this weekend get any better...I don't see how it could!
OH, but it did. Sunday morning Mommie and Grandma took me to Chuckey Cheese and then we went and looked at these wooden Jungle Gym's. It was awesome. I got to climb up ladders, slide down slides and climb on ropes. I had so much fun. Thanks Grandma for all the fun I had!!
After Grandma and Mommie checked out the Jungle Gym's, Mommie and I drove home. Mommie was tired, but we needed to get back to Daddy. We were missing him a great deal!!! We had a safe trip and got home around 6:30p.m.
We had a long fun adventures weekend. I got to see a lot of family...that's the best part of the whole weekend.
After we left IHOP, Mommie drove to Farmersville to stay the night at the Compound. We got there around 1:30 ~I was still awake~~~how could I not be with all the yummies I put in my tummy.
We woke up around 7:45, went down stairs and I got to see Aunt Pat, Uncle Durb, Uncle Bud, & Aunt Kat. We ate a little breakfast and then we started to decorate for the wedding shower oh, and I helped Uncle Bud put a handle on a door. I guess I helped...
When the time got closer and closer for the shower, I got to see a lot of relatives. It was great getting lots of loves and compliments...I have to say, it was great to see my Grandma. I haven't seen her in a while. She had lots of treats for me from her trip too. Thanks Grandma.
We ate hot dogs, cheetos (thank you Aunt NaNa), pickles, nachos, had lots of soda (thank you NeeNaw), I'm sure we ate more than that, but that's all I can think of right now.
After the game, Cuzn' Daniel wanted to go to IHOP in Sherman for his Birthday...then I got to eat some Chocolate Chip Pancakes, Eggs, Bacon, Sprite, NeeNaw's Dr. Pepper, and whatever else Mommie didn't see me eat. It was all Yummie to my Tummie.
Being with family and eating is a lot of fun...we need to do this more often!!

WHeeewww, am I glad that is over...the colonoscopy & endoscopy is what I am talking about. There is nothing pleasant about drinking that nasty stuff and the affect it has on the body. The procedure was nothing and when I came to it was like nothing ever happened. Pretty crazy knowing that something was up where I don't like things to be up and that something was down my throat and didn't even feel it. THE RESULT...I'm clear as a whistle...GREAT news right...uuumm, what's causing my pain??? My father suggested for me to see a chiropractor due to something that happened to him about 36 years ago. Dr. Zeid, OBGYN said if Dr. Lin didn't find anything, then I should go back to him, Dr. Zeid and most likely have a hysterectomy. Time will tell what we should do. All I know is if I should have another procedure, I need to have it done in 2007, so I don't have to pay that ridiculous deductible...not only that, I am planning on going back to school...I am not going to have room to have surgery!! That's the update...
Darren, he got up again last night around 2:00a.m. with a 102 fever. This morning at 7:00 he was at 98. Go Figure. This kid is going through change I think. He hasn't eaten much in the past 2 days...I'm thinking he's going through a growth spurt or his molars are coming in, or both...maybe he's hitting puberty ( I'M KIDDING). Anyhow, we changed his meds. As of 6:30 tonight, he has already changed his mood and he ate something tonight!! YEAH.
We will be going to Tioga Friday for my nephews Football game; it's his birthday too. We will stay the night with one of Zak's cuzn's and stay for one of Zak's cuzn's wedding shower. I say we will be doing this, but it depends on Darren on how he is feeling!!! Let's hope he's feeling like D tomorrow. I'm sure there will be pictures to show over the weekend.

Zak's: Football (sports) & watching t.v. shows.
Stacie's: Cleaning My House & This BLOG
Darren's: CHOO CHOO~~~Thomas the Tank and Friends...
Oh my gosh, he goes around the house saying choo choo...
wanting the t.v. on where he can see Thomas...it is the only
thing he wants to watch and it seems like it's the only thing he
says these days. It is driving us batty...Zak doesn't have any
patience with this choo choo business anymore & I'm almost there.
On a fun note for Z.; he is doing this Football Fantasy thing. Guys, you know what I am talking about. Anyhow, Zak has really been keeping up with it. It's good for him. He's cute, he flips through the channels to keep up (nothing new really), he will go on the computer and do whatever he does, he will change whatever he needs to change. It really is cute to see him skirt around with this fun project of his...notice this is his project and not mine. As long as it doesn't keep away from family time, I'm okay with it.
Something new I have to get use to with Z. He has started drinking these energy drinks. When we drive to Dallas or come back from Dallas we stop by a store and he gets one. The other weekend he did this and got the biggest can of Energy Drink I have ever seen. It's the new thing to do. Not a healthy thing to do, but drinking COKE isn't good for you either. Z. did get me a sugar free Sobe energy drink the other day, it was pretty good. The best of the 3 I've had.
Stacie... HHHMMM...well, I get to start prepping up for my procedures tomorrow (Mon.) On Wed. I will be having a colonoscopy and an endoscopy at 11:30. The doc says we will have results right after the procedures. He called last Sunday and informed me that the blood work came out just fine...Maybe they will find out what is causing this pain in my tummy...will let you know a few days after we know. Not sure I'm going to want to be up doing things right after the procedure.
Went to SFA this past Tues. when D. was in preschool. Come to find out...I have 58 credits that will transfer to SFA, but only 24 will go towards teaching. I was pretty discouraged!!!! I've been praying a lot on what to do. I could go back to a community college, which will be Kilgor and go until I have 66 total credits that will transfer to SFA, which will be a full 2 years. ( I feel like I am starting over), I could get my real estate licence like I almost did in CA., or I could get a job here in this little town of Henderson...HHHMMM...I would really like to finish up my schooling. Please pray for me...letting me make the decision God wants me to do!
This week was NOT a productive work out week for me. I worked out when I could, but it was hard with D. being sick and Z. had to leave very early one morning. I got some workout in, but not as much as I would have liked. Not giving up though. I am starting to see a difference in my pants....YEEE HAWWW. :O)
THE ENTIRE FAMILY: Please pray for Darren to get better REAL soon. (his pink eye is much better already), Zak to stay healthy and to get some rest and not feel tired, for me to have safe procedures done, for me to listen to GOD what he wants me to do for my future, and to continue to exercise and eat healthy.

Tuesday went great dropping him off at Pre-School...he walked in by himself vs. me caring him in, he gave Ms. Alicia a hug, and began to leave~~he started to whimper, then Ms. Alicia tickled his tummy and said I need a smilie face today. He stopped instantly and I left. That was awesome!
Went to pick him up from school after being at Stephen F. Austin all morning and part of the afternoon. I'll explain that later. He's a happy boy...excited to see me along with this clear liquid stuff coming out of his nose. Yip, Snot...I made some kind of comment...the teacher says, oh, we all have runny noses...oh great, I think. Not bad, then wed. afternoon he really starts to have a runny nose along with a cough, along with this yellow discharge coming out of his eyes...anyone know what that is...PINK EYE...oh goodness, in both eyes. Obviously he doesn't go to school on Thursday...Zak and I aren't getting very much sleep, and poor D.'s keeps getting med's put down his throat...he actually thinks it's a treat when he gets meds, well, he doesn't think the eye drops are treat. Friday, I went to run an erran and on the way home, he started vomiting in the car. Not a real pretty sight. As of today, he is doing better. Thank Goodness for all of us. Please pray that he continues to get better!!

We had a nice time with our friends. I'm hoping we can have them over at leaste one more time to go swimming before it gets too cold.
Wed. night around 2:30a.m. D. woke up being cranky...ended up sleeping on the floor on our comfoter. At 3:30 he woke up again...hhmmm somethings not right...I get down on the floor and check on him and he's HOT and WET. Gosh, I'd be cranky too if I were wet with a fever. He had a 101.5 Gave him some Tylenol and he went back to sleep. That morning at 7:10 we checked his temp and it was 97.7...yes, we/I took him to school. He was fine and his teachers said he did fine and didn't indicate that he was feeling bad. They both suggested that it could be him getting his 2 year old molers and or lack of sleep.Well, that evening, he started running fever again...rrrr.It's Friday now and he has ran fever all day. Spoke with the doc's office and they suggested for us to do a couple of things.We will do these things and see what happens. Please pray for Little D. that he breaks his fever.
Another topic...I got an acceptance letter from Stephen F. Austin today...it looks like I'll be going back to school in the Spring. If I can take another class or two at a community college to save money, I will do so. I am looking into doing a double major. Teaching and Deaf Ed. I am hoping to talk with an advisor in the near future about a schedule. Once I know something, I will let y'all know.
I too would like to let y'all know this as well. You see if I inform y'all about this, then I will be more motivated...I hope I will be at least.
I started Curves last week. I walk 3 miles a day along with Curves. If it rains, I don't walk...Darren does great in the stroller!! I'm so thankful for that. I originally walked the neighborhood until I discovered a track near our house last Thurs. or Friday. The football track is open 24 hours a day everyday. The turf is much easier on my knee's, back and hips. I have lost 5 pounds so far. In the past few months I have managed to lose 10 pounds and keep it off, but I haven't been able to go beyond those 10 pounds, so I joined up. Please pray that I keep up the motivation...I need and must get this weight off of me. I would love to lose 25 pounds and Curves calculated 17.5 inches. I will inform you more on my progress.

Zak and I have a neat story, no, not neat, unique and amazing due to God is the one that brought us back together. You see, Zak and I were neighbors when I was 6 months -5 years of age. My family moved when I was 5~~Zak says, I left him. Anyhow, I only saw Zak once in 27.5 years, yes, only once. I can't tell you how many times I thought of this boy/teen/young man. Zak's mother and I had always kept in touch, but Zak seemed to be too busy doing other things where we never got to visit with one another. One year, 2003~~December 2003, Zak and his father were traveling through California where I was living at the time. They had heard that I lived in CA., but didn't know where. Zak called his mother to find out my phone number. I get this phone call and to my surprise it is Zak's dad asking where I live and come to find out they were 1.5 hours away. I must say, I was smiling from ear to ear and floating on air. We met that night for supper at On The Boarder. It was like we never missed a beat. It was absolutly the best feeling anyone could ever have.Making this long story short...pretty much after that evening, Zak and I have been in each others lives. We were completly platonic for about 6 months and then we finally revealed how we felt about each other. He moved me back to Texas~~~my folks were happy about that...Zak asked me to marry him Jan.6, 2005. We married and shortly had a wonderful gift from God.
