I want to thank of you for all the prayers

and love sent my way.I really did take off

just to rest for awhile and get rejuvenated.
Then we had a family crisis and like most illness'

stress brings it on.

But now Baby,I'm ready for anything,almost.

My sweet daughter is here to help us out now.

And we have all have a fabulous week.DH took off

for 8 days to take care of me and of course the holidays .

Don't worry about lost pay he has several months of

vacation saved up,for times such as this.
For today,I want to fuss.One of my ,sh---------------,

several addictions is craigslist.I look at it when I am able

to get to the puter,ha,4 or 5 times a day.Checking new stuff.

I check the free stuff and the furniture section.Some

of the adds you wonder are these people crazy?And true

enough sometimes it is people just playing with your brain.

There is no such address or a phony phone number or


But look just look what I found below?And the price on

both------free.Yes,you would be amazed at the stuff on there.

And yes there is no drawer.But we have some nice pieces of wood

in my dh's workshop and he has one of those tools that shapes wood.

Glue it over it,stain it.Ta-da------------------And it was very close by.

The armorie is about 45 miles away,but all on the highway so it would

seem faster.Would my dh go get them for me?and this is what I want

to fuss about..........NO------------------------,WHY??????????

Well,of course the table he could carry by himself.But no one to

help carry it.Our one neighbor that woud've helped him now

has cancer.The other one that said he would help on another project

conveniently never is home.Our sil lives out of town and we live way out

in the country.

Plus the fact that really for over a year now,but for the last 2 weeks

he has taken total care of me.He does all the grocery shopping,all the

pharmacy.Takes care of all our animals,including cleaning the

bird room.That is love.

All the vacuuming,cooking,mopping,sweeping,everything.

For I think it's been 2 wks,i have been in a haze.All i have done is sleep

and go to the dr.There's no since running up more hospital bills.They can't

do much more that I can.I have all the machines right here I need.

So why couldn't he go get them for me????????????????????????

This is my way of bragging on my sweet husband.Yes,he usually is a slob.

And yes,he drives me nuts sometimes.But this,to him was my worse

illness yet.He said,this one really scared him.He was an angel.The only

thing i can "really"fuss about is,he would wake me up to try to feed me.......

Not bad huh?

And..........................also,I have the most awesome friends and family.

All of you stood by me and called and sent e-mails ans left comments.

And for this I am so very thankful.It's so amazing how you can love

someone so much that you have never seen.But we all love our God

and even though we feel and hear him,we have never seen him.So it is


So...I will still be watching Craigslist.net for more goodies we can go get.ha.

And I am now back all snuggled back with my sweet friends.YALL.......................
