Sunday, Lovely Sunday/SNAG

Finally, things are slowly coming together in this new world of ours except for the alerts. I'm still using dashboard plus my updates on my blog list. The privates are in my favorites. I blundered today while updating my blog list and deleted the whole darned thing...grrr. Had to do it all over again. One thing I don't like is the fonts. I like comic sans. LOL...minor, I suppose. Funny how we get used to certain things.

For those that have been asking about Becky, she is doing much, much better. An adjustment of meds, actually less than what she was taking, and something to sleep without panic attacks is helping tremendously. Megan came home yesterday to work a 12 hr shift at E&P. She had us howling with her tale of taking Becky out Friday night. It's almost like Megan is the big sis. They met a group of Megan's friends at a small pub near Megan's university. Becky was a nervous wreck but they ended up taking a cab home. Big Sis was the DD but ended up having some fun, for once. What a blessing that Megan ended up having to move with her big sister this semester. Who would have predicted??????

My 3 went to their Aunt's for dinner today (my ex's sister). It was her hubby's birthday. They just invited my children plus her hubby's son, who's Becky's age. Actually, he and Becky are very good friends. I keep trying for a love connection here. So, anyway, the BF and I went to Target, Walmart and then out to eat at a little local pub that has scrumptious steak salads. It was so good to spend some time with him. He is doing very well but still has to take it easy. It was a month on Friday since his surgery.

We had some gorgeous weather today...sunny and actually warm. I walked to the salt dome that some of you might remember I posted pics of but took the long way around to get home. Ya think I'd have lost some weight with all this walking. I think it's about 5 lbs or so at most.

I need to feed Grizzly and take him for his walk. Betty, I promise I'll get a picture of the old boy soon. He is really getting gray. Have a great week and hang in there....we're learning and growing together.

I am glad your daughter is doing better. I went through the panic attacks waking me, and it awlful not being able to sleep.
I never have it at night anylonger, hers will prob stop too.
Relax and enjoy your evening.

I am tickled pink that you had such a GOOD weekend! The Lord had a hand in how things have worked out for Meg and Becky,huh? I am so happy they went out and enjoyed themselves. You have been thru the wringer this year, Chris. WOW. SO SO happy you and BF got some alone time. I LOVE YOU ALWAYS AND FOREVER.

Debbie said...

It's so good to hear that Becky is doing much better and got out and had a little fun. Now it's your turn when BF is feeling up to it.
I've got a long way to go on learning this stuff here, I'll get it figured out one of these days. Have a great week!

Indigo said...

So many people have said they miss that font. I'm so glad Becky is doing better. Skye is still trying to do everything her self and act as if she doesn't need anyone. I'm calling her tomm. Mom intincts kick in when a week goes by without hearing from her. I swear her husbands deployment is aging her overnight. The weather has been gorgeous! At night we've had a fire burning in the pellet stove it's such a relaxing site. Glad to hear you got some face time with the bf. (Hugs)Indigo

I can't believe its been a month since your BF's surgery! that time went by fast! glad you had some alone time with him :)


Janie said...

So glad to hear that your daughter is doing better and had some fun. Great about BF too. I walked one time and should do it again. I felt like I had more energy when walking. Use to walk 3X a week at the mall, 3 miles. Question: On your song list, do you have to be a member to download the song list? God Bless, Janie

Tina said...

Getting used to this Blogger does have it's challenges--that is for sure! I have learned and I'm still learning how to "edit" my fonts using HTML. Send me an email and I will explain as best I can. It's really not that bad once you get used to it.
Your jounal looks so great!!! I'm hoping that mine will one day looks as pretty as yours. I'm working on it though!


PS: My screen name on here is VegasGal and I couldn't change it...ARghhhhh. But it's me! :)

Love Love Love your work. Your blog is so pretty. Happy to hear that you like my PMS tag. LOL...

Comic Sans was also my favourite font for my AOL journal. I suppose someone could tell us how to use a html code for that, as I noticed that we could write our own. Maybe a copy and paste job from the word processor might help.
