Bad day at Bedrock

Spent a terrible week-end in lots of pain and suffering. Even paid a visit to the ER to see if maybe something was blocked in my stomach but after cat scan it showed there was no blockage nor any kinks in intestines. All I knew is that I was in excruciating pain. It hurt worse whenever I laid down which made it impossible to get any sleep Saturday and I was exhausted. Long about 7 a.m. Sunday morning I decided to try some "Maalox" and it helped alot. I was able to sleep for 2 hours then. I had quit taking my Nexium for about 5 days and I guess the bile in my stomach built up real bad and it hurt me lots. I won't let that happen again if I can help it.
I don't much feel like going to mentor today but will do it anyway. I called in last week and took off and don't want to miss 2 weeks in a row. I know the kids count on their mentor being there and I don't want to let them down. Also it doesn't set a good example for them by missing.
My son's girlfriend and her 19 month old son have come here from Ohio to spend the next 2 weeks. She is thinking of moving here and getting a job here so my son and her can be together. They, the girl and her son, are so very sweet but it makes my house a mess all the time having a baby around. But you just gotta love him cause he is just the most sweet and adorable tornado, whoops, baby around.
It seems like I have done a lot of complaining in my blog today. Sorry about that folks.
We are expecting much snow tonight and tomorrow and I have to take my sister to hospital tomorrow so she can have a new stint put in for her dialysis. That should be fun traveling if we get all the snow we are supposed to :)
Well enough of this I will end this tirade for now and hopefull will have new things to tell next time.

How about those Colts!!

Well to say we are ecstatic here in Indy would be putting it mildly. We are moved to tears around here. First of all I would like to say how very pleased I am with the Christianity that is showing in our coach and the players. It does my heart good to hear them give the Glory to God first. They played a hell of a game too. So did the Bears in the first half. But the Colts are known to be their strongest in the second half.
There is going to be a parade here this afternoon but I probably won't go as it is only supposed to get to 9 degrees for a high here today and I am in no mood to get sick with a virus.
I have my mentoring to do today. Did I tell you that I mentor? Well I do. It only takes an hour a week and I have 2 kids in 3rd grade that I mentor. They are learning how to read more fluently. This is my 3rd year to do this and it has been very rewarding all along. When you have been blessed with much blessing then it is so good to give back to others. I may not have much money (I am on disability) but there are many ways to give without getting into your purse.
Spent all morning working on my kitchen and cleaning it up. Only had about 6 people here last night to watch the game but there was still quite a mess to clean up. I made BBQ chicken wings and Ranch Dressing chicken legs and con quesa to dip our chips in which was very tasty.
I am definately hooked on the Food Channel and watch it everyday. Since I can't eat I can still watch food on t.v. LOL There is more than one way to get your food fix :)
I weighed in at 257.3 this a.m. that is from 301. I am going to have one of my kids take a new picture of me soon and post before and after pictures.
Well that is about enough for now. Hope you all have a good week ahead.
Hugs to ya!
