Well, my laptop crashed about 3 weeks ago and I was amazed at how much I missed it. I love information. I love when I hear a word, or have a question about anything, there is this amazing thing called Google that I can search until my heart’s desire for that answer that satisfies my curiosity. So, after 3 weeks I got to go buy a new laptop yesterday. Didn’t get home until later in the evening and couldn’t wait to get it out of that box. Caught up on my emails, facebook, pinterest, looked at a dining room table I have had my eye on for a while……….I was back in touch with the world. All is good. ???? Hahahahaha! I guess I was feeling a bit tech saavy so I went to apple.com to download my iTunes. 3 hours later the box still read that there was 4 hours left and it is now 11:30 pm and church starts at 8:30 am. I left it running and went to bed. When I got up this morning everything was just the same as it was when I went to bed. No iTunes on my new computer and no 0.5.1 (whatever??) on my iPhone. Ok. After church I decided to start the process again. It took approximately 4 hours and it gives me a successful check mark. The symbol comes on my phone that Sync is in Process. THEN I get a picture of the iTunes logo at the top and the phone cord at the bottom on my iPhone. That was all she wrote. Dead phone, unless you like the pic of iTunes with a cord below. True to technology form, I turn everything off and back on. Number one rule, right? That didn’t work. I thought maybe the battery was low so I plugged into the wall to let charge. No change. I then plugged it back into my laptop and my iTunes page on the laptop shows all my apps but it does not even recognize that my phone is plugged in. So, once again I am in withdrawal. No iPhone. That’s how I “talk” to my kids. Random texts during the evening and before bedtime. Wish me luck as I brave the AT&T store tomorrow. That is about as painful as not having that instant gratification of knowing what is going on around me with that phone. So, all my friends out there…………….I am still here. Just currently technologically impaired at the moment.
Post Transfer……..and Counting November 27, 2010
My daughter had 2 embryos transferred on Tuesday, November 23. They were able to freeze 7 of the remaining eggs. She had to have 2 days of bedrest following the procedure. She continues to get the PIO injections daily and at this point because she is so tiny she is getting bruises on her bruises. BUT, she will be able to take a pregnancy test on Friday, December 3…….so we are just in a countdown at this point. Also pray for both of us – a menopausal mother with a hormonal daughter….whew….what a combination. 7 days
IVF November 18, 2010
Long day today and it wasn’t even me going through it, well I was but I wasn’t. My daughter has been going through the IVF process. Today she and her husband went to Nashville for the egg retrieval. The retrieved 23 eggs, which I understand is good. Now the waiting begins. She will get a phone message on the next 2 days on the growth of the embryos and they will transfer them back in her anywhere from Sunday to Tuesday – most likely Tuesday. She can have a pregnancy test on December 3. That will seem like an eternity away – kinda like waiting on Christmas when you were a child. You never thought it would get here. Keep us (yeah, me too) in your prayers and hopefully we will be like little kids on Christmas morning when we get exactly what we want.

It has been 7 years today since I lost my dad. I still find it difficult to look at fall arrangements without thinking of his funeral. I haven’t put any out in my house in years. This picture I took today embodies my thoughts of my dad……………..fall trees and golf. I love you dad.

Beautimous May 17, 2008
Has this not been a beautimous day? There is a two man golf tournament going on at the golf course, so the course was closed, but Freddie and I bought some flowers and a new tree and have been outside planting. Thoroughly enjoyed the outdoors. Adam and his date are at a baseball game and Lori & Clint have chair set-up at church, but they will all be here later to grill out. Looking forward to having a family evening. See you tomorrow at church!
