Sugar High

...I woke up this morning with the worst headache possible. Too much sugar. My husband and I do not eat sugar. I bet we have not bought a 5lb bag of sugar in the last 7 years, but yesterday we ate pie. Pecan pie, chocolate pie, lemon meringue pie, etc.etc.etc. ahahhaha. I will chase it all away with a couple of cups of caffeine and away we go.
......We had a wonderful day yesterday. Mom was especially alert and joined in the conversation, that is until I plugged in my lap blanket and turned it on low warm, it was then she went sound to sleep. Dad ate a very good meal and seemed to enjoy the day. Most families get larger as the years go by but mine seems to be getting smaller... There was no word from the other brother that lives only 20 minutes away. I just cannot understand that but maybe it is not mine to understand.
...... My son Chris even cooked for the occasion. He brought with him a pumpkin junk cake (at least I think that is what he called it) and it was tasty........ He is 38 and gooooooooood looking and still single......... I have tried over the years to help him out a bit but nothing ever sticks. I have given that over to the Lord and now I just sit back and wait to see which direction she comes from. He is in law enforcement here in town and despite never one day of college he has done well for him self. He is now an investigator for the Chickasaw Nation. I am proud.
.........PE and Alpha of course were here (brother and sister (in-law). What a blessing they are... We are meeting them here in town today to look at a house... and then most likely coffee somewhere... They are a hoot to be around and my husband Dennis and PE get along so well.... The four of us laugh a lot....... It is good for the soul..
...My husband and I are trying to get a house ready to put on the market. It was not of our choosing to do it now but do it now we must. It was a rent house that was left in, well, not a very good condition. We decided to sell instead of rent but there is a lot to be done. We will spend his next 3 days off painting and cleaning.....
.... The Lord did an amazing thing in my heart the day before Thanksgiving... Maybe I will sit down and share that with you tonight after the paint brushes are put to rest... have a good after turkey day ladies............ and if you are the shopping kind I wish you the best sales in the store...

I'm glad you had a good Thanksgiving. Ours was unusually quiet.
Your blogg still seems a little whoperjawed. Would you like some help with it?

Sorry you had that sugarrush headache. NO fun! It's not hard to tell you love your son and I honestly believe he knows it too! You done good "Mom"!

Denise, Where's your weekly blog link please? Thanks!

Sandra said...

Maybe it has something to do with my laptop although I see it the same on my computer. There is a huge gap at the top and no solid background so it's very difficult to read what you have typed. Does anyone else see it that way?

Denise, your blog looks fine to me with the exception of missing your weekly devotion and that's only because I've come to look forward to it already.

Denise,

Your blog looks wonderful. I see you have your Samaritan woman back. I love her.

Painting and cleaning is no fun. I have done it many times when I was renting to people. Everytime someone moved out the entire place had to be redone.

Blessings, my friend. Take care and how about your weekly devotion, some blog links and some photos of the painting. LOL

PS. Where did your Samaritan woman go, or was I hallucinating when I saw her?

When I use Explorer, everything looks fine except for the missing Samaritan Woman banner. I looked for the source for her in your page code, but couldn't see anything except a flash player code.
When I look at your page through FireFox its all jumbled so it might just be a problem with Firefox not recognising part of your code. No bigdeal if you use Explorer.
