Back From The Hospital

Back from the hospital today.  My son had another upper GI with small bowel series done.  It took all morning and part of the afternoon for the contrast to move through.  He hasn't had any problems with his crohn's disease since his last stay in the hospital in November.  Then the past few weeks it has started up all over again.  The test didn't show anything new going on so I am hoping when we talk to his GI doctor at Winthrop Monday it will just be a medication change.   I am happy it was good news.   He is so wiped out.   He came home and now is asleep.  

I also went and got some cute things for my godson tomorrow for his 3rd birthday my family is going to.  Can't believe how fast 3 years has gone.  I also found some things for my Mom for her birthday next month.  I am actually ahead for a change.  

Went and did some shopping for the bedroom.  New sheets, and I actually picked up another quilt for the bed.  You really have to watch the quality.  I rather pay more and know it is going to last then to buy a cheaply made quilt that is made of polyester...eww!!  I  can't stand to sleep in sheets after two days so I am always washing sheets and quilts.  Not to mention buying new pillows every month.  Yuck to keeping a pillow after a month...if you only know what lives in your pillow.  Saw a segment on Dr. Oz about that and have been buying new pillows every month since.  We finally have all our pictures that we are going to hang this weekend.  The Dotty Chase American Folk art prints are really nice.  I really like her salt box houses.  It is so cozy in the bedroom now.  I think next year we will work on getting rid of the rug in the living room and making over that room next.  

Still waiting for the new iPad to come out.  The Wi-Fi--3G one that is.  I was looking at the one while in Best Buy and it was awesome.  My cousin got one (the wi-fi one) and they like it a lot too.   I also got Alan an iPhone like mine yesterday and he really likes it.  We are turning into a Apple family between the iPhones, my 27 inch iMac and the soon iPad.  Got to love technology!

Well off to walk Molly & Bella.  Have a great weekend!!

Ready, Set, Go!

Kaylee and Brittany started the spring track team yesterday.  Brittany is still in her cast though but hopefully will be out of it no later than next week.  Kaylee did really well and had a lot of fun running around the track.  Their first track meet is on Saturday, May 1st.

Tomorrow, I take David for his upper GI.  He has been having trouble with his stomach again and hasn't had this test done since last year.  I just hope and pray it is all ok.

Just A Thought

I really just don't get people at times.  Isn't life about love and forgiveness, helping people and having healthy & happy family relationships, which includes communicating and celebrating others?  I know that is how I feel.  I like to surround myself with people who bring positive things to my life and I can bring positive and happiness to theirs.  So then I ask myself, why would someone want to choose to live a very resentful and angry life keeping secrets and not communicating, having anger and hate.  Why? What on earth is the purpose of that?  Where do they think this behavior is getting them by acting that way? Wouldn't you just think that they would love to have family who is there, who cares and enjoys getting together and laughing again?  Holding on to such hate and anger is so idiotic.  Don’t people comprehend that one day all that hate and anger does nothing but eat them up inside and pushes people further away and they will end up being a bitter person with no extended family.  You have to seriously feel sorry for them.

I myself have an experience such as this, and still don't understand that when I tried reaching out all it got me was a metaphoric feeling like I was slapped in the face for doing so.   Especially coming from someone who is my elder.  What is funny is that the situation was discussed and determined to be resolved.  Nevertheless, it still continues on months later.   If someone doesn't want to bother with my family or me so be it, and by the way my whole family including cousins, friends who they felt they needed to obliterate from their lives as well.... who had nothing to do with or had any idea as to why they were being treated that way.  How thoughtless is that now?  Then I find out instead of these people calling or communicating to see how I am doing they feel the need to come to my blog looking around to see what I and/or my family are up to.  It sends such a diverse message.  First you act like you don't care; and then you’re coming here to my blog looking around reading and looking at my pictures and another site I created for my daughter. Enough already. When will all this stop? I got the email months ago that was so ridiculous I choose not to respond to it.  I was not going to continue on with such ridiculousness.  I got the point that my family and me were no longer important.  Again, that is what I got for reaching out and offering a sincere apology.  Though, please with the family trust.... grow up!!  I am just tired of the hypocrisy, lies and the games that still get played.   Move on already and let it go would you.
