Yes I'm still alive

Wow it's been almost 2 1/2 weeks since I posted something here. So much has been going on with the nice weather and Belle having 2 weeks of spring/Easter break from school. The girls and I've spent some of that time at the park and we've started a new project - our garden. We planted seeds in a rubbermaid tub that goes under the bed only we kept the top off. Monday we planted corn, cuccumbers, tomatoes and green beans. It's only Friday and we have sprouts of all but the tomato plants so far. I guess in a few weeks we'll be transplanting them outside but the girls are excited seeing the shoots come out of the ground. We have carrots, onions, watermelon, cantelope, pumpkin and pepper seeds for outside planting. Guess I'll be spending the summer weeding and picking fruits and vegetables.

Also my new fun thing to do is making pixel paintings. So far I've made a teddy bear and an umbrella on my own. Other things I've made have been from tutorials.

Oh and on the garage topic. UGH! Can I just scream? The contractor says yet another week. Apparently the guy he subcontracts to do the digging had a problem and now he's looking for another person. I just hope he doesn't expect us to pay for another permit when it's not finished in time. He got one in January when we paid the deposit and I think they are only good for 6 months.

Another worry with the garage issue is we are getting a spare room built above it. This is a real need since Allan's parents are supposed to be here either from mid August to mid September or mid September to mid October and I don't want to have to move the girls around especially with them starting school in August.

Guess that's all my news for now.

Best news in weeks

Well I'm finally home from the Orthopedist. My mom took me. We went in and the nurse proceeds to cut the old one off. BTW it was blue almost the darker standard color for windows. Then the X-ray tech comes in and I have to make my way to the X-ray room. Get back in the room and the doctor comes in to ask how I was doing. My reply, "I'm still here." He then tells us that my foot has had an exceptional healing. What was going to take 8-12 weeks only 4 weeks ago is all healed. My only requirements are to keep shoes on it and no sandles or slippers and to come back in 2 months for follow up x-rays. I almost jumped off the table and kissed the man. My leg is a little weak and has shrunken literally compared to the other leg. Now I just can't wait to get out and drive again. WooHoo!

Monday Again

This weekend was great. Had a ladies game night on Friday. That was so much fun getting out and actually being an adult alone.

Saturday we did the weekly trip to get the things we need since I can't get out on my own.

Then Sunday was church and laundry.

They are supposed to start the garage this week. I'm so excited. We have been here over 7 years and finally getting the garage I wanted when we first moved in. Although I'm not holding my breath since we've been waiting on getting the builder to start the garage for a few months now.

Tomorrow is the big day to go back and see the orthopedic. I can't wait to get this anchor off my leg.

Now to choose which color to pick for the next cast?? Hmmm??? Any ideas?
