Just Checking In

I know there are a couple of you out there that wonder if all is okay over here in "Crazy Land" if I don't post each day...I know because I get phone calls and emails asking if I'm okay! It's so nice to be loved...and missed :)

Nobody has said or done anything funny...sorry. I need to get after them about that!

I just thought I'd a take a second while my lunch is settling to let you know that I am alive and well. I may be having a kidney issue...whether it's a stone or something else, I don't know. It just hurts off and on. Not too badly, just enough to make me step it up on the fluid intake. The Vicodin has remained in its bottle...most of the time. The problem is that the more I drink, the more it hurts. (It's a vicious cycle, I know.) This is "normal" for me, but if it is a stone, I need to flush the sucker out. The other problem with pushing the liquids is that I spend half my day in the bathroom! Difficult at soccer practice, baseball games, etc. Annoying when I'm trying to actually, you know, SLEEP during the night! One thing bad kidneys will do is make you tired, and I could really use my sleep! So, if ya'll just want to pray that whatever the problem is will be resolved soon, I'll take those prayers!

Well next week will be cookie crazy around here, and the week after that will be cake, I am cake AND cookie crazy! So, I'd best get back to it! I'll have some pictures to post later on, so you can just all hold your breath in eager anticipation of those!! Well, maybe just move to the edge of your seat...I've got a few more hours of work left to do and I wouldn't want you to hurt yourselves!

Thanks for stopping by...I'll be back later with pictures!

Ah -- soooo sorry to hear it's acting up again. I get you with the tired thing. Ack! I'm tired, tired, tired but we moms gotta keep going, eh?

Praying, of course. Hugs a bunches :)17961796

I'm sorry to hear you're having problems. I'm amazed you can stand the pain of a kidney stone - I've only seen it once, when Rob had one, and he was in agony until it passed.

I sat here and looked at your cookie tutorial again this morning. I wanted to make a list of everything you used. Krissy and I are starting ours soon. So she'll be coming over to sit here with me and we'll watch the whole thing together. If our wedding cookies come out even half as lovely as your Easter cookies came out, we'll be delighted.
