Doctor Doctor, give me the news...

Took my grandma to the heart doctor today... they scheduled a Transesophageal Echocardiography (TEE) for next Friday, they are hoping to find exactly what is causing her trouble breathing and the pain in her chest. Please be praying for her! Thanks so much!

My grandma

She is headed to see my mom and Doug this weekend... which means I have the house to myself! WOOP WOOP! :) I love my grandma but I miss living on my own, it will be nice to hang out and enjoy the "me" time! :)

Nothing else exciting is going on in my life... hope everyone has a great rest of the week! Thanks again for your continued prayers for my grandma!

Behind The Scenes

This song hit me in such a strong way today... I thought I would share it with you....

Behind The Scenes
by: Francesca Battistelli
You may think
I’m just fine
How could anything
Ever be out of line?

I take my time
To set the stage
To make sure everything
Is all in place

Even though I’ve got the lines rehearsed
A picture only paints a thousand words

Things aren’t always what they seem
You’re only seeing part of me
There’s more than you could ever know
Behind the scenes
I’m incomplete and I’m undone
But I suppose like everyone
There’s so much more that’s going on
Behind the scenes

Sometimes I can’t see
Through the dark
Surrounding me
And at times I’m unsure
About the ground
Beneath my feet
If it’s safe and sound

When it’s hard to find hope in the unseen
I have peace in knowing it will find me


You may think I’m just fine
How could anything ever be out of line?

I hope you have a great rest of the week! :)

Snow storm number two...

Yesterday, it snowed yet again... thankfully we didn't get as much as the first go-a-round but I am still not a fan of it. So, I spent my day inside of course... drinking my Diet Mtn. Dew and reading a book by Lynne Spears called Through the Storm. At first I was not really interested in reading it... I figured it would be about how hard her life has been, blah blah blah. To my surprise, it was a great read. It was interesting to find out how Britney and Jaime Lynn got to where they are in life and actually how their entire family has had to deal with the fame. I know that the media can spin any story any way they want to, but I think sometimes we forget as humans, that the stories the media are telling us, are the stories of other human beings that are more like us than we think. I can't imagine living my life through a microscope... and thankfully I don't have too! If you are looking for a good read, I would highly suggest this book. You might just be surprised with what you learn from it. :)

Snow, snow, and MORE SNOW!

My mom and Doug came back from Arkansas to close on their house and pick up what was left of their things at their old house on Friday. After a foot of snow and the snow continuing to fall as we loaded the left over things in the uhaul, they made their way back to Arkansas in a wintery-mess.

I found that my new rain boots (which I had yet to wear) were the best for walking around in the snow... and while shoveling the driveway I stepped on some ice and slid right into the splits. On a good day, I can do the splits with a little stretching... but considering I hadn't stretched for my unexpected, highly entertaining, splits, I've been in a bit of pain since.
Here is a pic of my new rain/snow boots!

The snow fell the entire time we were trying to load the truck and u-haul trailer...
These pictures are of the snow falling and us loading

Finally yesterday the sun came out and it got ABOVE freezing... I wish we could get excited but unfortunately it looks as if we will be getting another snow storm in a few days. I don't think I have ever hated the snow so much! I hate being trapped inside due to my car not being able to go on any kind of weather but dry and sunny! It's very annoying. But none the less, today we were able to get out (in my grandma's car) and grab some Taco Bueno and a few groceries! Now, I suppose I'm as ready as ever for more snow. :(
I hope everyone is staying warm! Have a great week!

Probably shouldn't... but I'm gonna!

I should start this by saying... I probably shouldn't be writing this. Partly because I have nosey people that read my stuff whom I haven't seen or spoke to in 10+ years and partly because I'm going to ask you guys to pray for my dad and he's not much for being brought up on my social networking sites, but none the less... I feel like I need to say a few things and I feel like I need my prayer warriors help!

I found out Tuesday that my uncle (dad's brother) was found dead on Monday, now let me say, I have only met this man once (that I can actually remember) and so I really had no relationship what so ever with him, for good reasons. (Wayyyyy to personal for me to put here and really none of anyones concern) So the last few days I have been processing and trying to sort emotions that I really thought were non-existent... this will sound heartless but my feelings and emotions really have nothing to do with the death of my uncle, but more for my dad who is and will have to continue dealing with things that he hasn't had to for 20+ years. After I was born my dad had to make some decisions that would be best for me, my mom, and him in the long run, decisions that no person should have to make or have to deal with/ go through, but like I said, were for the best. The most altering decision was having to remove himself, my mom, and me from any relationships with some of his side of the family. Of course there is a lot that goes into this story and what brings me to writing this blog in the first place but I feel you just need to know the basics. I am asking for prayer for my dad because he is and will continue to have to deal with his family (the part that he hasn't seen or spoke to in years) and you can imagine how difficult this is. Not only did he lose his brother but he has to deal with ghost of the past and we all know what a pain that can be. And even though I did not know my uncle very well, there are still people (as with any death) that are affected by his untimely passing, please say a prayer for those people as well.

Thank you in advance for your prayers, I know I can always count on you guys to lift me and my family up in prayer when needed! Thanks again!

Try to stay warm! xoxo
