Please let us celebrate something...

TJ is turning 30 on Saturday...that seems so old to me.  Even though I am the one that seriously couldn't remember if I was 27 or 28 the other day when asked.  It's hard to keep up anymore. 
We have been in a rough place this month with so much going on concerning my injury, job, lack of income, etc.  As you know from my previous post we had to cancel our big vacation to Disney and Orlando.  Well I also had to cancel TJ's surprise party for this weekend.  I had Arrowhead Country Club booked with 8 tee times for TJ and his friends to play golf and then we were going to have lunch with family and friends.  I just couldn't do it b/c of our expenses this month and everything else going on.  Now TJ may even have to work on his birthday. 
I know that God has good reason for all that is going on in our lives right now but I must say it's hard to know how everyone says when it rains it pours.  I feel like we're in a hurricane.  We made plans to go to the lake for the weekend so I am hoping these too don't get cancelled.  If so I will feel so horrible for TJ not to mention how depressed I'll be.  I am ready to have some fun and get out of this house! 
Ok I'll stop.  It's not that bad.  We have a million and one reasons to be the happiest people in the world...Love, Jobs, Family, Friends, Home, New Furniture, and so much more!  I continue to thank God everyday for them and for what he has in store for TJ and I next.  WE WILL OVERCOME THIS!  Thank you to all of you who have been supportive during this difficult time.  I can't wait until things get back to normal!!!!  I miss laughing all the time and seeing all my co-workers, friends, and DRIVING! 
Happier post to come...I promise!  :)

Sad but Swimming...

There are many things about my recent injury that have been miserable but Wednesday I went to the Doctor for my weekly update and got a great report and a great prescription!  The doctor said that all was looking good and for me to start trying to put some weight on my leg/foot.  He said that I needed to get in a pool up to about my chest and walk laps.  It's harder than it sounds espically because my foot has been in one position for 3 weeks without movement or weight put on it.  I am such a lover of the sun and summer.  It has been killing me to be inside laid up but now I am FREE!!!!  I made TJ take me that very afternoon to the pool and I tried out the walking.  After about 30 minutes I was exhausted.  I was like a kid though; I didn't want to get out.  He had to make me!!!  ha ha!

I can tell that it's getting better day by day and hope to be back to normal very soon.  I still don't know why God gave me this injury and will admit I'm still bitter.  TJ and I would be packing today and headed to Disney World and Universal Studios tomorrow.  We had a Deep Sea Fishing trip lined up also for tomorrow morning.  I am just sick about it.  No matter how much better I feel I can't help but be sad that TJ and I didn't get to take this vacation.  TJ will turn 30 on Saturday the 26th and I just don't know what to do to make it up to him.  He says that he doesn't care and he probably doesn't but I do!  We will still get to go eventually but it just won't be the same without a reason to celebrate. 

I will look forward to our trip to New York in December and hope with all my heart that God will allow us to take that trip! TJ and I have never been and are looking forward to seeing the big apple during Christmas time. I guess one thing good came out of us not taking our vacation this summer...we'll have more money for New York!!!

Good Report...

Well things are progressing!  I went to the doctor yesterday and got my cast off and staples taken out.  I now have a very fashionable big black boot as part of my summer wardrobe. 

I was instructed to treat it as a cast and only take it off to bathe...yes I can submerge my foot under water and take a bath like a normal person!!  God answers prayers.  I asked the doc what the difference in a regular cast and the boot was and he said that it was a simple trust issue.  He is trusting that I will keep it on and continue to favor my leg.  No pressure on it and I must still elevate.  You don't know how frustrating elevating is but to constantly have your foot above your heart is harder than you imagine.  I have mastered many new positions other than just laying on my back.  ha ha!  I hope to go back to work soon and for my mother and TJ's sake I pray that I will back to normal in a few weeks.  TJ has learned so much about cooking and taking care of things.  I think he has a little bit of a new found appreciation for his wife.  He still wouldn't admit it though.  Gotta love manly men!!!  They are the best!
