We have had lots of struggles and challenges in our lives, but we've had even more blessings!

Wedding Weekend - Fri. night

    As you would imagine, I have LOTS of things to tell you about from this past weekend. After all, our out of state kids were in town. And Brent and Kayla got married. A-n-d Sunday afternoon we held a get together for family members, so they could visit with our out of state kids. But of course, that's not all that happened. But you knew that would be the case, didn't you? Mercy.
    So, instead of trying to tell you about everything in one posting, who's length would rival War and Peace, I'm breaking it all down into various postings.
    The out of state kids arrived Friday afternoon. I LOVE the fact that 2 year old Analyse totally knows who we are and is excited to see us when they get here!!! Us and "BOO!!!" ;-p.
    We had lunch and then tried putting Analyse down for her nap. That was a total no-go.
    After lunch, the guys had ran out to the mall to do some account switching around with everyone's cell phones. Brian, Brandon and I had been on Byron and Cyndi's plan. Benson had been on Brent and Kayla's. It is now set up so that there are three plans, and everybody living in a house, is on that houses plan. And since we most often always go through the same manager/sales rep. - he turned things over with out extra charges for doing so. Nice!
    Early Fri. evening, all of us, along with Kayla, her mom and sister, met up at the church to decorate it. That went really smoothly. Thanks Karen Bur. and Jewels for loaning us "stuff"! Oh, and those items that I had mentioned picking up at the Goodwill store - they worked fantastically!!! (Thanks Lord!)  No, I'm not showing you pictures yet. We're waiting to give a disk of the pictures (Benson was their photographer) to Brent and Kayla, before we post any of them anywhere.
    The 'plan' became that we were all going out to a specific pizza place, once the church was done. But then... and then ... and then Ms. Analyse was showing definite signs that due to having not had a nap, she wouldn't be up to much for very long. So I stated that as long as they called and had a small pizza delivered to our house, I would stay at home with Analyse and Elliot, and let all of them go really enjoy their time together. It ended up that it was Brian and all of our 'kids' at the restaurant. He said that was rather nice. ;->
    With Analyse watching Elmo(R) while sitting in her highchair eating her pizza, and me eating pizza and feeding Elliot his bottle, and Boo hoping somebody would drop something,  things progressed rather smoothly. That is, until the Elmo(R) DVD was done, and I was washing Analyse off and getting ready to put her in her pajamas. That's when I spotted it. Flying mad circles around our kitchen. I called Brian. "Please come home NOW!!! There's a bat flying around in the kitchen. small shriek. Now it's zooming back and forth through the main floor!!! HURRY!!!"
     He told me to take everybody upstairs and wait in a bedroom. Sounded good. But by this time, Ms. Analyse was watching me like she was trying to decide whether she should continue to be intrigued by this thing zooming back and forth and dipping here and there, or whether she should panic. After all, Grandma didn't sound any too happy...
     I took a big breath, said a prayer (or twenty, on top of one another) and decided that if a 2 year old could stay calm, so could I. (But I did keep praying! o;-p)
     Boo had growled, super deep down inside type of a growl. But then he had moved so he was sitting right up pressing on to my leg. I had taken hold of his collar. Did NOT want him jumping up and catching that thing, and getting bit...
    Thankfully, I had washed Analyse up, but not yet gotten her out of her chair. And Elliot was asleep in his seat. I put a blanket over the top of Elliot, very firmly told Boo to stay! and while telling Analyse just a minute, I went and propped the front screen door open.
     I never did see the bat again. My prayer is, that while I was looking else where, he did swoop out that open front door. I didn't see him, but I left the front door open for about ten minutes just in case...
     As I was in the midst of getting Analyse into her sleeper, growling low, Boo darted towards the front door. My eyes are scanning the air for the bat, as I'm instructing him to stay inside. He did stay, just barely inside the front door. When I got to it, I spotted a very anxious lady trying to hurry her two small dogs up the street. I felt so bad! I called out an apology and said that I had the door open, hoping the bat in our house would fly out of it. She didn't respond. I'm pretty sure she thought I was kook-koo - the front door propped open with moths buzzing about, a big dog growling scarily, and the shrill voice of a young child yelling "Boo STAY!!!" I shrugged, knowing she was probably right. o;-p
     I got Ms. Analyse down with out any incident and Brian finally arrived home. I didn't say anything about how long it seemed to have taken him. Later, totally of his own accord, he started telling me how he had instantly slid his debit card to Brent and headed out, only to run into construction - every single route he tried to take! You could not simply drive home from Plainfield and Four Mile. Mercy! Figures.
    We had settled into couches in the living room. Relaxed. Talking everything about the weekend, etc. over, when suddenly we heard Analyse putting up a ruckus.
     My first thought was that the bat was in her room. Then my mind reassured me that her door had been shut until I opened it to put her in there. When I got to her, she was sweating something fierce. The sleeper had been too warm for that room that night. So I changed her to a large T-shirt. But by then she had had an hour and a half nap, and was rearing to go. And then Elliot too woke up and decided it was time for his evening fussy spell. And then our adult kids arrived home. Byron and Cyndi to find both of their kids wide awake. What could I say? (insert eye roll here).
     Fin-a-lly everybody went down for the night. Whew!

Now THAT's a compliment!! ;->

      Do you remember how on  Wednesday I had told you about how my 'plan' had been to 'find' another room of this house, but the storm the night before had done quite a number on my head, so I wasn't sure.. ?  Well, I did get all of the layers for Brent and Kayla's wedding cake baked up. And I really wanted to accomplish something in the 'finding' of this house department, but knew that I was not up to conquering all of the dining room, nor the den, nor... Hummm  So I decided to start on the front book case* leading to upstairs in the front entry. That way, even if I wasn't up to finishing a-l-l of it, I would be able to see the progress I did make. And physiologically, I needed that!
    "the front book case* leading to upstairs in the front entry." Yes, it's actually a stair case. And no, it wasn't just a Freudian slip. Although it fits. At least around here it does! Goodness!!! I know some of you never have such a problem. But I also know that others of you can relate all too well. Somebody sits something on the staircase that needs to be taken upstairs. At least usually (eye roll) their intent is to take it all of the way up the next time they actually go upstairs. How-ever (and that's a HUGE however right there!), they almost always end up walking right past the waiting item and going the rest of the way up. Empty handed.
    I would love to be able to say that it's only the rest of the members of this household, that do such a thing. I really would. But that wouldn't be being truthful. And I strive very hard to be truthful on here. So instead, we're just going to leave this whole part alone. Starting now. ;-p
    And like every other surface in this house (and in lots of other peoples houses as well), once one thing is sat on it, it acts like a magnet, piling things up on and around itself at an alarming rate. I mean, to the point that sometimes (okay, frequently) somebody going up the steps, brushes against something piled there-on, knocking it over. But even that does not then grant/guarantee the item an automatic ride to the top. More often the scenario becomes, that the thing lays where it has fallen to, awaiting the next stair case users hands to place it back on a step - any step.
    And it seems that both dust and dog hairs also have the magnetic ingredients in them. Horrors!!! And the two combined, around the 'piles', and across the back of the open walking lane .... What a mess!
     Yep, the front staircase needed 'found' and any progress I could make on it would be noticeable!
     So-o, being my usual totally logical self, ( o/~) I started at the very beginning ( o/~) [ o;-p]. I used a Kleenex to gather the hairs and dust off the wood sides, and my fingernails to gather it into a bunch off the carpeted middle of the steps. I placed both into a plastic shopping bag, so it would be easy to move it with me, as I worked my way up the staircase. And, I took care of the items which had been piled there on.
     I got about a third of the way up the staircase and was feeling both the pressure in my head from the type of activity I was doing, as well as pressure in my lungs from all of the dust, but after returning from getting a drink of water, I could see so-o much progress, that I convinced myself I could do the rest of the way up to the landing.
    And then after returning from that bathroom break and water gulp-age, I was so impressed with the progress I'd made, that I decided it would be wrong to not keep going up to the top of the staircase. ;->
    When I got done, I was ever so tired. And sweaty. And heavy headed and lunged. And the dizzies were building. But I had 'found' the whole staircase. And even if I did say so myself, man did it look good!!!
     The dizzies were to the point, that I knew a shower was out of the question. So instead, I hit my bed. Might be wrong, but with vertigo, you MUST recognize both symptoms and your limits, or pay horrendously for not having done so! So-o, ignored the sweaty and hit the bed. Oh my word did it feel good.
     I was laying diagonally on my right side, across the bed in front of the window, when I heard Brandon arrive home. My inner ear vertigo symptoms do better if I lay on my right side. But that puts my back towards the bedroom door.
     A couple of minutes later I heard him start up the steps. Then I could tell that he had put one foot into my room, when I heard him say, "Mom, the steps look A-MAZ-Z-ing!"
     I smiled. Ear to Ear. And all of my insides too. And thanked him. And I'm still smiling over it. Because that folks, WAS A COMPLIMENT!!

The evidence was there...

   I just laid, resting on my bed for a bit after I awoke this morning. I was just so-o-o comfortable! All of me (except the dancing going on near the top of the inside of my head) was relaxed, and rested, and comfortable, why rush into getting up?  As I lay there, I was looking out the window and thanking God for the wonderful cool breezes he was caressing me with.
    The breezes had been moving tree branches some, but not a whole lot. Then suddenly a big branch of the neighbors 'bushy' pine tree (I have no idea what the actual name of that type of pine tree is. I just know two things about them - 1) the pine needles grow hanging down from the branches, making them look all bushy like. And 2) I don't like that type.) took a BIG dip down. At first I thought, "Ought - oh, here it comes again". (We've had some really strong winds connected with storms around here lately!) But then I realized that none of the other branches on that tree, or even on other trees, were doing the same thing. Curious.
     A minute later a branch of a neighboring pine tree also took a big dip down, but then began to spring up and down for a bit. "Awww... the squirrels are playing again". I kept watching. Very shortly thereafter, the telephone line started doing a rhymatic type of bouncing, I smiled, expecting to see the squirrels in chase any moment.
     I never did see the squirrels. They must have headed the other direction when they got on the phone line, instead of heading my direction. But all of the evidence that they had been present was there.
     It struck me how like God that scene had just been. While I couldn't see Him, I had known it was Him caressing me with the cool gentle breezes. And while I still can't see Him, I know it is Him that is building both my physical strength as well as my emotional assurance, to get up from here and go tackle frosting that wedding cake I baked the layers for yesterday.
     Thank-you Lord - - the 'evidence' IS in the proof.

Progress made:

    One of our sons and our daughter-in-love-to-be are getting married this weekend. Did you catch that? Their wedding is THIS weekend!!

   So, here's a report on progress made:

~ Wedding Dress - alterations / back redesign was completed and sent to the cleaners last Wed. afternoon.
    That included taking trim from here, (which involved removing do-dads which had been attached using both white thread and fishing line(?) - ever so hard to see - and Ms. Vertigo here was the one doing so. You don't need to insert an eye roll here, mine still are. ;-p!) ) to make a panel to insert there. And then resewing on most of the removed do-dads (NO fishing line was wasted (aka: used) in that process!!!). And making and sewing on the loops for the lacing up the back to go through. And sewing little beads and pearls across the top of the new panel, as well as to the little loops, so that the finished redesign looks like it/they belonged in with the rest of the dress from the beginning.
    But the dress is 99.9% done - just have to move the strap buttons - but they are inside the bodice and an easy thing to do. 
    Yes, of course I 'plan' on doing a posting showing you before and after pictures of the back of the dress. ;->
~ Bridal Bouquet, boutonnieres, courageous - DONE! And two days later, I figured out why I didn't remember the ones I made for Byron and Cyndi's Michigan reception being this hard. I had made them using a different methodology. (if your eyes aren't rolling, you may do so now). But I got them done, and only burned one finger so bad with the hot glue, that I ended up having to go to a neighbors and have her pop it for me, seeings how it was still boiling under the skin, and the blister was GROWING..... 
    Yes, of course I 'plan' on doing a posting showing you the flower things I did up. ;->

~ Yesterday I 'found' the living room. No, I will NOT be showing you before and after pictures of that. Mercy.

~ Half of the guys have tried on their tux's - only one pair of pants needs hemmed so far. Brent and Adam are suppose to be here tomorrow night to try theirs on. And Byron will be here on Friday.

   [Did you catch that - our 'out of state kids' will be here on Friday! :-> ! :-) ! :-D ! And honest - I AM TOO looking forward to seeing Byron and Cyndi - not JUST Analyse and Elliot ... o:-> ]

~ I pulled 95% of the tall thick weeds ( a lot of them were golden rod plants) out of the back yard. The majority of them, by their roots! :-).  First off, I am highly allergic to golden rod once it blooms. Secondly, a lot of them were just shy of knee high - that would have made running about the back yard challenging for Ms. Analyse! And thirdly, yes, there were a LOT. In the mid hundreds. Honest. So I've been doing some of my physical therapy, sitting on a small step stool, early in the morning while the dew is still on the plants, pulling the darn things.

~ The Cake - I plan on baking that up today.

~ Decorating the church. That's on our schedule for Fri. afternoon. Last Sunday God provided something wonderful to use - maybe on the table the unity candle will be sitting on. Definitely on the food table for the reception we will be hosting in a few weeks. Picked them up at a Goodwill store...
     Yes, of course I 'plan' on doing postings about both of those things. ;->

   Last nights storm did quite a number on my head. Goodness! I had hoped to 'find' another part of our house today, besides baking the cake.... we'll see ... but for now, I had best get off of here and go start on the cake.

    What have you been making progress on?

Our National Anthem - sung the way it should be!!!

   My Aunt Darlene posted a link to this video on Facebook. It's an absolutely wonderful, inspiring, warm fuzzes, video, of an autistic man who started having troubles while singing the National Anthem at a baseball game.
    I liked / like it so much I wanted to share it with all of you - feel free to do the same.


More Timing Smiles ;->

    God displaying his sense of humor via timing in our life's struck again - twice even. He was on a roll last night! ;-p!

    In the midst of watching a recorded episode of a show last evening, Brian commented, "What did he do with the third guy? I only saw him 'take care of' two". "No, he handled all three"  "I must have missed one. . ."  So I pushed the button on the remote to back things up. "No, that's okay, I don't have to watch.."
    And suddenly we were sitting in total darkness. Laughing!
    I had started to move my finger over to switch it from rewinding to going forward, lost my grip on the remote, and in the pursuing grab at it to keep from dropping it, hit the 'off' button instead of the 'forward' one.
    Out of the darkness I hear, "I hadn't real-ly meant that I didn't want to finish watching the show. . . ."   sarcastic chuckling . . .
    I was laughing so hard, my fingers were having challenges finding the right button to turn the TV back on. o;-p!!!
    And we were sitting in total darkness because there was still quite a bit of sunlight coming through the curtains when we had started the show... but it had been from the setting sun, which had finished disappearing from our horizon and left us with only the glow from the TV... which too had left the room ...

     (yes, we did finish the show, after a successful rewind and rewatch... ;->)

     Not long after we had gone to bed, we heard the sound of a police siren start up, run for only a super short time, then wind down again. In my mind I was thinking, 'that was close by' and 'they pulled over fast'. Then I realized that Brian was chuckling - ever so softly - like he was trying to make sure he didn't disturb me.
     "What's so funny?"
      . . . (silence)
     "I had just lifted my hand to wrap my arm around you, when the siren started. "Okay Lord, your right. I need to let her get some rest. I won't disturb her, PROMISE!" and the siren stopped".
     COMICAL!!! ;-p

Info. about how you too can watch some 'oldies but goodies'

    As many of you know, a while back I discovered that the cable station INSP was carrying the TV show 'The Walton's'. I LIKE that show!!! For others of you whom do too, I thought I should let you know that the station will be airing a 'Walton's Marathon' of favorite episodes picked by viewers, on September 5th (Labor Day) starting at 1 pm ET. And they will again be airing 'The Walton's Family Reunion' at 9 that evening.

    Our DVR is set to record episodes and then I watch them when it suits me. Recently while watching them, I have gathered a whole bunch of information about other shows that INSP is going to be airing starting this fall, some of which I know certain ones of you will enjoy. Therefore, I thought it prudent to share said information with you. I know your gonna be thanking me. ;-)

    'The Big Valley' (<- INSP's link) . Here's the IMDb link -> 'The Big Valley' .

    'The Brady Bunch' - starting with the very first show, which showed o/~ "That's the way we all became the Brady Bunch ..." o/~   ;-p  (I heard you singing it!)  Here's the IMDb link -> 'The Brady Bunch'

    'Bonanza' ( o/~ "ba-da-de-da-dade-da BON-NAN-ZA-A!! " o/~  ;-p  Here's the IMDb link -> 'Bonanza'

    'Dr. Quinn, Medicine Women'. INSP is going to be showing a premiere marathon of this show on August 29th. Here's the IMDb link -> 'Dr. Quinn'

    'Left Behind: World at World' . (Third Movie in the Left Behind Series). Here's the IMDb link -> 'Left Behind'

    The sad news ( :-[ ) for you who have Dish Network is, that they are no longer carrying the INSP channel. Go HERE to read more about it, and to learn about some action you can take towards getting that changed.

    I know that some of you are questioning why I bothered to put both INSP's link to the show and IMDb's link. I did it for your ease. See, the INSP's link gives you a general overview description of the show, airing time information, etc.. But via the IMDb's link's, you can see more information about who the cast of the show was, follow leads to other shows those stars were in, etc.. I was just helping you to easily be able to get to all of the information ya might be  wanting to. :->

      o/~ "Here's the story, of a lovely lady, who was binging up three very lovely girls, all of them had hair of gold just like their moth-er, the youngest one in curls....." o/~  Seems my head is still singing ... o;-p

a couple of things -

   First off - to those of you who subscribe to our blog. (THANK-YOU!) I know that every time I update a posting, it gets re-sent out to you. I would hereby like to apologize for how many 'copies' of the link-up listing posting you are receiving. Some people are no longer hosting theirs. Somebody else didn't want theirs included. .... Please just ignore any new copies of that posting you receive, and know that I am very sorry for the repeated issuance of it!

    Secondly - no, I have not been posting real frequently lately. I am now 3/4ths of the way done with the alterations and restyling of Kayla's wedding dress. I am also now 3/4ths of the way permanently cross eyes. o;-p   Goodness!!!
    Next on the list is the corsages and boutonnieres. Thankfully they do not involve sewing on little tiny beads, or netted do-dad's (like that technical name? ;-p)
    Then it will be on to hemming all of the guys tux's...
     Thankfully, there should be time for some chocolate therapy time before I have to start on the open house style reception we plan to host.

     Right now, I'm headed back up to finish the back of the dress..... Deep breath.....

another _45_ new link-up parties have now been added

[I set this posting to be "normal size" type - blogspot keeps changing it. :-/  To get it larger on your screen, hold down the "Ctrl" button (bottom left corner of your key pad) while scrolling up or down till you get the size script that's easy for you to read. ;->]

     Back in June, we again started doing our round-up postings of,  " 'Theme Days' / 'meme's' / 'carnivals' / 'Link-up parties' " which various blogs host. Like we shared then, doing them was something which we had actually started back on our old blog. The first one had contained 55. Last months one, was up past 650. This one has _45_ more than last times did!
      About those numbers. The grand total depends on how you count them. If you go down the list, only counting every time there is a "~" before a theme day name, then you come up with one total. HOWEVER, that's not really an accurate total. Why not? Because a whole lot of them are co-hosted in such a way, that the list is posted on each co-hosts blog. So if you count them up according to every blog site that a link-up party is hook-up-able to on, you end up coming up with a much higher total. Your welcome to take the time and count them up, which ever way you prefer. But no matter which way you do it, your total number is a high one! ;->
(For the record, it was _45_ more "~'s" we added. ;-> )
     One commenter had written this in their comment - "I'd  been wondering if there was a list of linkies, something like the yellow pages of blogland, and then POW! there you were!!"   :->!  I (Cheryl)  so-o enjoy my "detective work" {as another commenter had termed it} in tracking down these themes. And I'm glad that so many of you have found it helpful. 
    TODAY we will be posting list number ten (#10). P-L-E-A-S-E - read through the list and see all of the options available,  We'd be surprised if you didn't find at least one topic that catches your eye / meshes with your interests ;-}

IF you are/were the host of one of the listed "theme days", and you are no longer hosting yours, (aka: you've stopped it in the last two months) PLEASE let us know so we can remove you from this list.
~ ~ IF you host your own "theme day", and I have not yet stumbled across it and thus added it, or, if in your own travels you stumble across one I haven't yet added - PLEASE let me know about it so I can ;-D  {how to word this ... I have stumbled across a couple of themes that we have chosen NOT to list - shall we say for personal reasons / preferences. Yea, we'll leave it at that.}  For the record, no, we won't be incorporating new ones into this specific posting. They will be added to the next one (which we 'plan' on doing in the not to distant future, seeings how I have LOTS more leads, which I have not yet followed up on ;->)
~ ~ ~ Several of you had asked - No, we do not list one time blogging events / special days / whatever-you-call-them's in our "Theme Day('s)" lists. We have chosen to only list on-going *blog "theme day('s)". We also do not list individual "Swaps" or "Give-a-ways".  HOWEVER - there were several "theme day's" which do host a way for you to promote those. No, we're not going to list them here. If we did, you might not stumble across something else you'd enjoy participating in while your searching for them  o;-p!!  (*We also do not include hops which were only for Face-book, Twitter, etc..) 
~ ~ ~ ~ IF we were able to find your email address somewhere on your blog, then you were notified about this posting. If we couldn't, then you weren't. We'll add your email address to our list and notify you the next time we do one of these listing postings, if you'd like (in other words, send us your email address), or you could just subscribe so your automatically notified. o;-p
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ And lastly, YES - you may post that you were included in this list and link your readers back to it ;-}  In-fact, we hope that you do. We'd even like to encourage you to take our button along with you, it's located on our sidebar. (Please do NOT copy and paste this listing to your own blog. Thank-you)
    [Our Button's link-up has been changed
 - June's linked you to our blog. In July it was changed so that it now links you up to that 'label']
This is just a picture of it, you will find it located it down on our side bar.     

* * *
 Helpful tip on how to hook a particular posting of yours up to one of the 'Linkies':
   Right click on the time at the bottom of the particular posting {of yours} that you want to link to, click "copy shortcut" and then paste it into the "Linky" box on the hosts site.  
   This way, you are hooking up just that participating posting, not your whole blog site.  If people wish to visit your whole blog site, they will.
    In the box of the linky that says "name" - put the name of the posting your linking up, not your personal name.
    If it is the type of linky that includes pictures, after you link up your posting and enter it's name, click on "next" (or whatever word it uses) - then choose to select a picture from your blog. Once pictures show up, select the one (or one of the ones) that you had included in that particular posting.  Sometimes it will then change screens and allow you to sort of zoom in on one part of the picture. Other times it automatically posts that picture with your connection. Just depends on which Linky the host is using.

    Just a friendly reminder - If you link something up to one of these, tis only polite to also visit at least a few of the others who had done likewise. Then take it one step further and make their day, by leaving them a comment. Don't know what to say?  Just start up a friendly conversation about what ever it was they had posted. ;->
