Time is Relative...

Wow!  Has it really been that long since my last entry?  Yikes! 

I am doing pretty good!  My hip is behaving, the inflammation is down, the nerve no longer trapped, but it is just a teensy bit still sore.  Working around that....

My IV went well in the city!  One stick each for the blood draw, the IV, and the flu shot.  Yes, I am now officially, armed and ready for defense of the flu!  lol 

It was sad to be going to the building where the plane crashed.  My nurses said they were there that day and had no idea what had happened until the next day.  Most of the staff that were in the actual building struck thought it was just a routine fire drill when they were evacuated.  No one was injured from the Hospital staff. 

I have had a busy week with the kids and family, lots going on each day this week, so that is why time has been relative for me.  Get it?  lol

Today is the first of many Halloween celebrations.  Pumpkin Muffin went to our town recreation department's Halloween party and contest today with a friend.  She has a party on Tuesday for Girl Scouts.  Fuzzy has the 6th Grade Social which is a Halloween costume party on Friday.  Then, Tuesday next week will be the big day! 

So, no Mets in the World Series.  :(  So sad.  What a year they had... too bad that it ended this way. 

Pumpkin Muffin also finished her Girl Scout cookie selling this week.  I am proud to say that she made her goal of passing 100 with a whopping 102 boxes!  Fourth year in a row!  Yay!

I can't believe how fast time is passing!  It seems like it was just a few weeks ago we were in Wildwood, not 2 months!  Wow...

My mom always told me when I was a kid that time begins to go faster each year, the older you get.

She sure had that right.  Time is flying.

Live, love and laugh... for the time we have is a just a blink!!!

be well,
Dawn

You are so right about time flying! Weren't we just at Ft. Lee? Oh wait, we were just in Korea, I'm sure of it. It's going way to fast and I just want to put the brakes on.

Still waiting on pictures of the kids... ahem!

And, um, you better be behaving with that hip! LOLOL You know I love you!

Hugs,
Susan

Glad you are feeling better.  That must of felt odd going into that building where the plane hit...I still can't figure out how he made such a tight curve right into the building? It was like he was trying to pull a U'hy in the air, such a shame. Eeks the holidays are sneaking up on us....Sandi http://journals.aol.com/sdoscher458/LifeIsFullOfSurprises

LOL..yep I got the time is relative halfway through the entry.  That had to be eerie entering that building.  I guess because the plane was so small, no one was really aware of it hitting...good thing but still sad.  My mother always said the same thing about time.  She sure was right about it.  HUGS  Chris

Having a big family of growing kids I wonder when you have the time to even take a breath. I think I would ebjoy all the Halloween parties as much as your kids do. Congratulations to Pumpkin Muffin on the cookie sales. How I love Thin Mints. How I wish I was allowed to have a few. Have a good week. Regards, Bill.

Dawn I have issues...lol..my daughter did that Girl Scouts thing, I felt liked I needed a pre=prep rally just to get excited...one night she had to sell them and she and a couple girls and I..were outside in the freezing cold...I know its great for kids but it surely wasnt what I thought...but then I learned as they get older they do more interesting things...so that was encouraging...


Glad your hip is doing better....a couple of weeks you will be jump roping..lol..well...you'll at least feel much better...-Raven
