What Your Front Door Says
You are intriguing and charming.
People are naturally drawn to you, even if they don't know you.
You are calm and wise. You are a true leader.
You never feel isolated in a group. Somehow, you always belong.
My front door is Blue!! My house is white trimmed in blue!! You know me I see these things and I have to do them!! I just hope I am friendly and give my guests a good welcome.
You Are Granola
You are creative and inventive.
You don't do much the ordinary or normal way.
You like to explore new ideas and lifestyles.
Something isn't for you just because other people do it.
Quick breakfast fixes are definitely not your style.
You're the type most likely to cook yourself an amazing homemade breakfast.

Nancy, my special needs daughter had told me "Find me Christmas things"!! I know they have some Christmas things out but usually large decorations she wouldn't care about. At the first place I hit the jack pot!!
Not before I scarred Karen!! She had given me money to have fun with and I had it in my slacks pocket and move it to my hand and then I am talking ( some would say Well, that's a stretch ) LOL I said I can't find my money!!! Karen looked where I had been standing and it wasn't there. She said, "Did you look in your pocket"? Yes! Yes! I have, it is not there!! I looked it my jacket and it was at the top almost falling out and I was so relived and happy! By the way Karen took the money like I might lose it!! LOL
The lady at this place had a box of ornaments that were just right for Nancy to sit and go through! She just Loved them!! They are so cute !
Karen stopped at a church where they were selling goodies and I had a brat and it was very good!! More garage sales and then at the top the hill where I lived when I was married, we went around the corner and I said I wonder if my friend Jackie is out going to garage sales this morning! Karen said ,"No she is having one!! I got out of the truck and would you believe a bunch of ladies from the church and prayer groups we all went to over 30 years ago were sitting in lawn chairs visiting and had put stuff in her garage sale!! They got another lawn chair for me and I sit and visited with my friends for quite a while and WOW what fun this was for me!! I think we all enjoyed this because we all have gone through a long winter and what a beautiful day and beautiful friends to be with!!
I felt so blessed to see every one!! Catching up on every one news it always fun!! I told them" Oh, I wish we had Karen's camera and I would take a picture and you all would be in my blog!"!! Then Karen said, No one is safe with Mom blogging!!!! I said, "You know my family tells me "MOM don't blog about that" !! In fact my daughter in Mexico has even said "Now,Mom that not for your blog!! By this time every one is laughing and teasing me!!
Karen took me out to Wal-Mart,out to her house and then home!!! In the evening we had our friend Linda over and she fixed supper for all of us!! It was so good!! All in all we had a great Saturday!!!

MySpace Happy Birthday Comments
It has cooled down here a lot from yesterday! I think I saw on the news at noon it was down to 47 degrees. I had thought about turning on the AC yesterday when it was 81 indoors and we were all getting cranky!! Well, me anyways!! But I didn't, because I like to have a month that we have a smaller bill and in the fall the same thing.

We went over to Kansas University Medical Center with Nancy yesterday to see her Dr. over there. He had the same good news about Nancy lungs that her other Dr. had already told us. He said that Nancy's lungs have stabilized!! This is sure good news. Nancy's lupus attacked her lungs back in 2004 and we have been working on getting this under control since then!! He said she could exercise by walking up and down the hall way or on Kelly's tread mill but not on an incline. Very slow at first. Their is scar tissue on her lungs which still making her out of breath.
I won't be able to get out to many blogs today. I have worked in the computer room on Carrie's stuff all afternoon!! Tomorrow! I hope!!
Kelly has a prayer request. She is going to take her GRE test next week to be able to go back to college and get a Master degree in Library Science. Please pray she can retain what she is studying and that she will score well on her GRE! Thanks!! I know your prayer will be a really big help!!

What Your Taste in Chocolate Says About You
You are sweet, mellow, and easily satisfied.
You don't like anything too intense and dramatic.
Deep down, you're a kid at heart... and you're nostalgic for the past.
You are emotionally expressive and sensitive.
You're effected by everything around you.
Your friends appreciate your open heart, but they are afraid of hurting your feelings.
You love being by yourself and thinking. Developing your own theories and ideas is fun.
You feel lost when you're forced to be social. Being with other people can be lonely for you.

Wow! What a busy Saturday! Kelly worked today so I thought, I am going to do my awards page!! I was over at Shorty Bears's Place and she had her's all up and posted to her side bar with out making a page for it. She used a new post and put her awards up on it and I thought I can do that!!! Well, I did but not as good as she did!!! So when Karen came over she and Kelly fixed it for me!!
Let me tell you Karen didn't want to do it this way she wanted to put three awards across the page!! I said I can't do that and every one knows that I can't do them like that!! I want them like I would do them!!!
In the middle of all this my grand son called and he said Grandma I am on my way down to fix your gutter that blew off the back of the house in the Big wind storm!! I was tickled pink and said come on down!! When he got to looking at everything the gutter was shot!! Jey and Karen had to go to the Home Depot in Blue Springs and get 15 feet of new gutter!! He was able to get it on the house and it looks good! But he said Grandma you really need new gutters for the entire house!! I kinda of knew this!!

Thank you so much for all the prayers for Nancy!! We went to the pulmonary specialist today for her check up and to find out the results from the Pulmonary Function test she took on Monday.
The results are in: AND she is doing better then 6 months ago!! I was so happy!!
The only thing was that I didn't eat enough before we went and I ran errands with Kelly and walked more then usual and I had a insulin reaction at the Dr's office and this time it was a bad one!! The nurse gave me a cookie and Kelly got some stuff for me but I had gone to far and I was in cold sweats and very clammy and my clothes were wet! We stopped at Mc Donald's and had lunch but when I got home I was chilling and sick and sooo weak. I slept the rest of the afternoon. I am feeling much better !!!
Ok, we go back to the pulmonary specialist in Oct. Next week we go see her Dr of Rheumatology over at KU Med Center. In May she has her blood drawn because her thyroid was out of whack. She also goes to the Special Needs Dentist in May. The last of May we see her Dr. of Gastroenterology for her stomach problems. In June we go see the the Psychiatric for her other problems and our local Dr for her diabetic condition!! I am telling you all this so you can put her on your prayer list!!!! Thanks!!
So, if I don't get to your blog as often as I would like to you know why!!!! She is a lot of care!! So again I am saying a Big Thank You for your love, support, and Prayers!!!

|You Are Bubblegum Flavored Gum|
You love life, and you can always find some reason to smile.
You are a bit hyper, and you're always looking for your next challenge.
You love getting things done - and you are usually on the go.
Your confidence and positive attitude makes you a very attractive person.
You can be a little flaky at times, but people are able to overlook that - because you're so fun!
I had not seen this one so of course I had to see what kind of Gum I was suppose to be!! You all probably took this one while our computer was in the shop!! I am Bubble Gum! Well, there you GO!
It is so cold here for April! I can't believe it! The weather man is calling for snow flurries for in the morning!! But before long it will be HOT and I don't like hot at all!!
Nancy goes on Monday for her Pulmonary Function test. She hates doing this because she has to breathe into tubes and it is hard for her. Please remember her in prayer on Monday at 1:30 . Thanks!

Wow, You're a Bulldog!
You may look like the troublemaker of the pack, but it turns out your tough guy mug is worse than its bite. You're really a softie, loyal to your friends and family and A-OK with meeting new pooches but you prefer to do so with a high-five instead of a paw-shake. Proud of your great sense of humor, you've got a whole litter of jokes you draw from to keep the mood playful and the positive energy alive. A perfect afternoon for you involves a leisurely stroll with a pal, followed by a little downtime in an easy chair with a frosty can of brew, Or in my case a Diet Coke and a remote control within easy fetching distance. You shed accusations of being lazy, knowing perfectly well that you're kenneling the energy you might need for... well... something. Learn more »
FAMOUS BULLDOGS: Ellen DeGeneres, Whoopi Goldberg, Jack Black, George W. Bush
LIKELY PROFESSIONS: Comedian, Firefighter, Racecar Driver, Bartenders

What I was doing 10 years ago:
Back in 1998 Kelly was in her second year at college. My grandson Brandon was married in July and my brother Ray who was so ill with cancer said he wanted to come down for his wedding, and he did!! Ray and his wife and his grandson were able to drive down and this was the last time I saw him. He died on Sept 4th and as we were leaving for the funeral my nephew Doug called and he told me the sad news that my sister had just passed away. This was a very sad time for me to say the least.
Five things on my to do list for today:
Call about Nancy's bill from one of her Dr's
Call about and see about an Appointment for Nancy
Take care of some work for Carrie Wash the dishes
Watch the THE BIG Game tonight!! KU and Memphis!!
BLOG twice in one Day!!
Snacks that I enjoy

Carmel pop corn
Things I would do if I were a billionaire:
Give money to my church
Pay all my debt
Pay all my family's debt
Give money to the lupus foundation
Build a new home Well that was fun day dreaming!!
Three of my bad habit
See Snacks I love
When writing down a phone # I never remember to write who it is for and then later I have no idea!!!
Of course staying on the computer toooooo much!!
Five places I have lived:
Hot Springs New Mexico now it is T OR C
Five jobs I have had:

Five people I want to know more about (A nice way to say TAG!)…

Guess what these guys are talking about!!!! Not days of lore!! Who will win the game tonight KU or North Carolina!!!! You can see my head in the corner of the picture and I got a kick out of this!!!
Karen,Nancy and I had a great time at the Scottish Highlands deal today!!! It was a little chilly to start with but we put our chairs in the sun for a little while hoping Nancy wouldn't get to much sun! I have more pictures to post but wanted you all to see these!
You all who know my last name know I have a Scottish last name!! For 52 years!! But I am Swedish! In fact I am half Swedish!!!
Ok, tonight is the big game!! The Final Four!! Around in this part of the country they are in a frenzy about Kansas playing against their old coach Roy Williams! He left KU after saying he would never leave. This was 5 years ago, so Grams thinks it time for KU fans to get over it!! and go on!! They have a great coach now, Bill Self!! But that is just my opinion!!
