Nothin Much

There really isn't much to say latley, can you tell!! We have been really busy with work this month, so that is good! The only complaint with that is that ALL of our customers think they are the only one and their job should be done the day after it is ordered!! I wish people...there are only two of us!

We did however get a chance to go camping two weekends in a row at Lake Somerville! The first weekend R.R. went with us, and we did aboslutley nothin!! It was heavenly, I literally read a book ALL DAY saturday!! The next weekend we went back with the Patch's and took some pretty cute kids with us!! We were worried that the rain would wash us away, but after about noon it went away and the sun peaked out from behind the clouds! We were able to get some tubing and swimming in for the kids, and came back for a nice relaxing evening!

The next two weeks is family, family, family again! A special little girl is turning three on the 22nd, then D graduates from High School!! It is going to be a busy summer, I can't wait! Hopefully some baby news to follow soon, but we will see. Have a great end of spring, cause summers gonna be hot!!

Happy Birthday!!

Happy Birthday Mammaw Linkhart, Granny, and Dustin!! Today is a special day!! I miss my mammaw and my granny, and I just can not wrap my head around the fact that Dustin is 18 years old today!

You have made us all so very proud of you! I remember the day you were born like it was yesterday, you were a blessing then and nothing has changed! I know that you will be successfull in whatever it is you decide to do! It has been a pleasure watching you grow into the man you have become today. Love you!

I think about you everyday. It is funny how you pop up in so many unexpected places, you have changed my life forever and for that I thank you. Your so called unconventional ways have proven to be very helpful and soothing for me. There is not a day that goes by that I don't think about you! I love you and miss you!

Mammaw Linkhart,
I am so proud to be able to say that I am your great-grandaughter! You are a part of me in every way, and on a daily basis. I love that I get to see you in mammaw all the time. You have left a legacy that you should be proud of. We love you and miss you.

Can't wait for a fun filled family reunion this saturday! I haven't seen most of this side of the family for about 15 or 20 years!! It will be interesting to see how people have changed! I wonder who I will recognize and who will recognized me!! Who am I kidding, they will all know that I am Donna's kid I look just like her!! Cute aren't we!!! Pics to follow, cause my wonderful hubby bought me a new camera yesterday!!!

Going Crazy!

There is so much going on I don't even know where to start! I guess with baby info., J and I went to see a new fertility specialist! He didn't give us great news, but its news and now we know what needs to be done! We were told that I only had a 1% change of ever becoming pregnant with P.C.O.S.(Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome). BOOOOOOOO :( He wants us to do Hormone replacement injections, and guaranteed that we will get pregnant that way. He just can't guarantee how many babies we will have at one time...that has got J kinda scared of it, well that and the price tag! So needless to say we are saving our pennies (and of course taking any donations!!!) so we can give it a shot! I still have some work to do on J to make sure he is completely on board!

On top of the stress of worrying about all of that, J's dad was put on medical leave without pay! We have started the disability process (which is not fast enough) and trying to figure out how he is going to pay his bills since he has NO INCOME! I think it is ridiculous that an employer can stop paying an employee that has been with the company for 35 yrs. because of a health condition. They should have to wait until he has been accepted for disability before they can just say, sorry we aren't going to pay you anymore. UGH...can you tell I am frustrated by all of this! Social Security is not any better, they said he didn't qualify for temporary pay because he made too much money! Can you believe that, he has NO INCOME and made too much money to get temporary help from the government...I guess you have to be lazy and not work in order for the government to help you! It is sad the way our government treats the elderly who pay their dues and actually need the help. If he didn't have someone helping him, he would loose his health insurance, be evicted from his home, and still have no income. My big mouth is good for something I guess!

On a lighter side I am excited about our Williams Family Reunion this weekend! I will get to see family that I haven't seen in years! It will be so much fun to catch up and see everybody as an adult now! I think the last time I saw many of these people I was 10 or so!! Any way, that is all that is going on for now!! So until next time!! BMS

Busy Year!

So far this year has been non-stop! I am not complianing by any means, but I can't wait for a vacation!! We have been busy with work, which is a big change from last year!! Things seem to be moving in the right direction for us! This new positive attitude is working for me! I wish I had more details to give, but other than work and the occasional hanging out with is pretty boring right now! Till next time...

New Year...New Me...

I have decided that this year will be different. It will be different because I will be more positive and live my life to the fullest. I will be more optimistic, more forgiving and let the little things role off my back. I am going to be healthier, make better decisions about my health, and make people listen when I say I don't feel right! I am going to work hard, and hardly work all at the same time!! I am going to attempt to go back to school, I will find a way to afford it eventually! So that explains it...New Year...New Me!

I'm Back!!

Well it has been a while since I made a post and I apologize for that! I recently got a new laptop and will try my best to keep things more updated! Where to start first...

John and I finally tied the knot! We had a huge group of friends and family come to our house to help us celebrate! We had a live band, good food, and great company! Thanks too all who came to share in our day!

Keith also tied the knot! Yep, he's a married man!! That still sounds funny to me!! He and Sarah had a wonderful honeymoon and are doing well!

John and I have been occupied with work quite a bit latley, and are not complaining at all! It beats the alternative! We have been talking a lot about expanding the company and building our office. We hope to have something done within the next six months. We have also been talking a lot about babies!! YAY! I have finally found a doctor that has really helped me. I was able to finally get a diagnosis after six years of wondering. I had two 1cm polyps in my uterus, which they removed, and have been diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Sydrome. I was told that my chances of getting pregnant were good, but I would need a little help. I will have to use fertitly treatment drugs in order to become pregnant. It is a scary thought, but the chances of multiples are low! I am at a point in my life where I will take whatever I am given, wheather it means one or more! I actually started the treatment just a few days ago, so we are keeping our fingers crossed! More updates to come soon.

Please Forgive Me!

I have been a horrible blogger, I know! Things have been up and down and then back up again lately! Where do I start? The beginning of 2009 was filled with doctor's appointments (check-ups only, everyone is fine), work, and planning! Finally work has picked up some, we are finally beginning to see the flicker of light at the end of the tunnel! Barely, but it is there!

We have decided that we are going to make getting pregnant a priority! I have been to the doctor and have been given a clean bill of health! Lets hope everything sticks this time! I hear that the pregnancy bug is in the air all of the sudden, that's the bug I hope catches me! I expect lots of prayers for this!

John and I also decided that after almost nine years that we should finally get married and make it legal! Woo Hoo! We did that on March 27, 2009! I will have pictures posted as soon as I get them back! Here are two of our "Engagement" Pictures!

On a sadder note...I was in a pretty bad car accident on March 11. I am ok, although I am not real sure how. This is do have pictures of, and will post them. Here is how it happened; I was driving on a two lane road (Roberts Cemetery Rd.) in the miata that was my grandmothers, going the opposite direction was a Ford F-250 truck that was driving really close to the center lane. I decided that I should slow down in case she crossed left of center, and when I put my foot on the brake I began to spin. I could not control it no matter what I did, so I just tried to relax and wait. Well, I hit a tree with the passenger side door then went airborne and went between two trees and fell about 20 to 25 feet down and landed on the passenger side in about 4 feet of water (creek). I was able to unbuckle my seat belt and kick out the windshield to crawl out of the car. Amazingly the only injury that I had was a puncture on my right pinkie knuckle, and a cut on the back of my foot from the windshield. The car however, is totaled. I believe that someone had their arms wrapped around me, whether it be my grandmother, or my guardian angel I don't know. I am just thankful to be alive, and I have opened my eyes to the world around me. Life is too short for drama and stupidity, have fun, live for yourself, love like everyday is your last. Here are the pictures, these were taken after the wrecker had pulled it on its top a bit more than it was when it landed.
