Bought the yarn for my 2012 afghan

Went to AC Moore  today at lunch to pick out the colors for my afghan entry for next year's NC State Fair.   After taking the picture I changed my mind about the gray yarn on the top of the picture and went with a burgundy instead.  After the toy show this weekend I will start working on the rectangle blocks for this project.


Hernia Project

After putting up with bad stomach pain for about a month and a half, I finally went to the doctor to see what it could be.  After a c-scan and then a visit to the surgeon, it turns out I have a small collection of these stupid hernias around my belly button and up my scar from the gastric bypass surgery I had back in 2003.  Plus I had a UTI at the time of my visit to my PA so that did not help matters.  

The surgeon prefers performing the corrective surgery via the lap method so he told me I would have to loose the 50 pounds I have gained over the past 4 years due to the stresses of life.  So I am going back to gastric bypass eating basics: protein, fruit and veggies.  We went shopping over the weekend and got lots of good stuff for me to eat.  

I have been trying to increase the amount of walking I do every day and need to have M move the exercise bike into the bedroom so I have better access to ride it.  The surgeon said I can only walk and ride the bike until he fixes my hernia collection.

Happy Almost Halloween!

These three are just too cute!  Just had to share.

No that I am not having a very bad hormone day, I reactivated my Facebook account so everyone can see Joanne's pictures there.  Just got to love those peri-menopause moments!

Thursday's Picture

Joanne and I played in the yard tonight.  Got the manual settings to work much better outside on my camera then inside.  She loves sitting on the front porch waving to the neighbors as they return home from work.

JoJo's Pictures from FB

I decided to deactivate my Facebook account today since I find myself spending way too much time on there when I have other things I need to be doing.  Here are the pictures of Joanne that I had up no there so my friends and family can still see them.
