Memorial Day

I did two things that I haven't done in a very long time.
1. I slept in.
2. I cooked something.
We got together at my parents house for a bbq and Angel asked me to make a macaroni salad. It actually was yummy. LOL
Christian bbq'd again. The guy loves to be in front of the grill. He did an awesome job. We had massive amounts of food!
anyways, it was a wonderful day. After we ate I took another nap.
It was a great weekend! Tomorrow another wonderful day at work. Looking forward to it.

I can't journal...

So I can't write. I'm not good with words and I'm horrible about expressing myself.
My journaling on my layouts if any say the same things:
"I'm so blessed"
"She's so cute"
"I love her/his smile"
"I love you so much"

I get so annoyed with myself because that's the only thing I can think to write when I look at my pictures and am completing my layouts.

....20 minutes later....thinking....pondering...

I write these things because I really truly am blessed!! I have a freaking awesome family and friends that I would do anything for.
My kids ARE cute!
I seriously love the smiles on their faces.
and I freaking love them so much!!!

well I mean every word of it so I'm going to continue to write that because that's what I feel when I see those awesome shots!

I'm a happy girl! Who's ever reading this...

I hope your happy too. I hope you feel blessed. Yup YOU who ever you are.
If your wondering if I mean what I'm say. I do!

I hope YOU have a wonderful day!!
Hugs

I *heart* my son-in-law!!!


Christian is such an amazing guy! Besides being an amazing father to his son, he's a great husband to Angel.

He's been so concerned with the break-in last week that today (after a long day at work...4am-2pm) he worked really hard to get our back door secure. He had his friend weld some hard metal things (I have no idea what these things are called) and he used the electric do hicky thing to put them on. You put these honkin 2x4's on them and it totally secured your door!

The other night he took Angel to the hospital because she wasn't feeling good. He totally stayed by her side. Angel later told me that she could tell that he was super concerned for her and the baby.

He's so awesome!! Sometimes guys don't get recognized for all that they do and I want to let everyone know, how lucky we are to have him in our lives!!!


Christian, thanks for taking care of my baby and for being the guy that you are!!!

Love ya,

Mom

Doing better...

It's been a little over three days since I had my surgery. I went in on Thursday around 3pm to fill out paperwork and went into the surgery room around 5:30pm.
The last thing I remember is that they were strapping my arms down. I totally don't even remember them saying anything like, "count backwards" or "we are going to give you some___" NOTHING. I remember waking up saying, "are you going to do the surgery?" and the nurse looked at me and said, "we are done sweetie!"
It took me a while to wake up from the meds. I went to my parents house to relax and sleep. I was sooo out of it until around Friday evening.
My knee is doing better. It's not hurting as much but I'm scared of what's to come.
I learned after surgery that more than half my knee is bad and that I'm going to need a new one. OUCH!! If this surgery hurts I can only imagine what the next surgery will be like. I'm so nervous just thinking of it.
My mom is a jewel! She helped me through the whole ordeal while Paul was with the kids. She cooked for me, helped me get up, put ice on my knee, gave me my meds, etc. My mother is such a blessing!
The kids were so sweet. They would come and hug me and tell me they love me.
Sierra made me about a hundred cards. LOL
Anyway, I'm doing better. This morning I'm going to work. I'm picking up Lonae. She's so sweet. She wants to come help me.
I'll let you know how it goes.
Hugs
Suzy
ps. thanks for all the sweet emails, prayers, and phone calls.

the cRaZiesT week of my LIFE!!!!

Okay so this post is going to be crazy. I should actually be resting right now but I'm in the mood to ramble.
So this should be a freaking movie...or maybe when you read this you can picture this in your mind.
Saturday---National Scrapbook Day. Having a blast. All day being crazy. Around 7pm my knee starts to hurt and so does my right eye and forehead.
By the end of the night...I can't walk. In massive pain. Go to the bathroom broke a ton of blood vessels in my right eye. OMG I look like a freak. We have to wear black, white, and red the next day. Tempted to put on a patch. I look at myself with my crutches. I look like a pirate. No patch. LOL
Sunday--National Scrapbook Day. Feeling like CRAP but excited to see everyone. Lots of craziness. Barely can walk. Eye and head killing me.
3pm--Pattie comes in and lasts all of 20 minutes because she has a gall bladder attack. Ends of up in the hospital. So it's Angel(pregnant and feeling crappy) and myself working.
I start getting worse and worse.
I last until 6pm and then realize I won't last another hour. I leave and go to the hospital too. LOL
Preggo is left by herself. Thankgoodness Erin, Janice, and Rocio step up to help. THanks girls!
That night Angel calls and the conversation goes like this:

Angel: "mom, tomorrow the store is going to be closed."
me: "but but but....I can come..."
Angel: "MOM! Tomorrow the store will be closed!"
me: "I'll rest and I'll be better for tomorrow"
Angel: Stop ticking me off. The store is closed. Good bye."

Monday the store is closed.

Tuesday I come in...and realize...in what seemed like slow motion...that I've been ROBBED!
I was on the phone with my good friend Jenn. She says that I said, "hmmm my register is missing....my register is missing...omg my register is missing!"
I looked towards the back and realize I see light, which means the back door is open.
the back door is NEVER open which means someone broke in.
I go back and the door is open, everything is all over the place (it looks like that all the time) and the safe is gone.
Jenn is still on the phone..."I've been robbed, I gotta go!" and hang up on her.

I call the police..they come and we find out that they have tried to rob many of the locations here.
The word "TRY" because these were the stupidest crooks ever!

They tried to rob the Gelato place and opened the empty lots next to them by mistake. So nothing.
They tried to rob Market broiler and get into one door but not the main door so they got nothing.
They got into my place but I'm sure almost 99% positive that they must have BIFFED it big time and fallen over all the crap that we had in the back. It was Bad! I had boxes, tables, chairs, and all kinds of crap. The thieves had to work hard to get the safe...that had absolutely NOTHING in it. It was brand new. So they got nothing.
They got my cash drawer that normally has zero in it but had $100.00 in it.
Soooo all that work and they got an empty safe, $100.00, and I'm sure a freaking head ache from climbing all over my crap back there.

Same day I have an MRI appointment that I can't miss. Remember this was Tuesday--two days ago.
Yesterday I went in for the results. I see my MRI. OHHHHHH it's bad!!!
Dr. Says...Your having surgery.....TOMORROW!
What the freak????

So now...here I sit...hungry and thirsty since I can't eat anything and haven't eaten anything since last night.
normally---not hungry or thristy....today....dying to eat and drink anything. go figure.

In three hours---surgery.

wow, I've rambled. Not going to spell check or re-read...I'm sure it's crazy. If you've read through this whole craziness...yeah. wow!! You are sweet!!!

Have a great day!!!! I'm nervous but I'm actually in a very good mood and have been cracking up over everything going on.

I wanted to add a quick THANKS to my awesome friends who are always there to check on me...Linda, Erin, Janice, Rocio, Pattie, Carla, Satyn, Angel, Jenn, and all of my Picture Me Perfect girls!!


Have a good one!!
Hugs
Suzy
