Long Time No Blog

Well, Friends


I know I have not been blogging lately, but I have been really busy. So much has been going on.

Well, I have Sleep Apnea and I have had a sleep study done and I have been trying to get used to all that air blowing up my nose while I sleep.

Also, I am tired of being fat. So, we decided that we would go into debt up to our eyeballs and I would have lap band surgery. My husband was really great about the thing. I said I wanted and he said I agree. However, when we discussed it later he said it will really benifit me. I said I know I will live alot longer. He got a really sneaky grin on and said that's not what I was talking about. Yes his mind is always in the gutter.

I had the surgery on May 30th. Then I stayed at Pat's and Farrel's for the weekend. Pat took really good care of me. Farrel was so sweet, he even let me sit in his chair all weekend. It was really nice to have a father and mother figure to take such good care of me, and love me so close. (I live 800 miles from my mom and dad)

The surgery was some kind of painful. I have to be careful about what I am eating and I think I have done really well.
I thought vacation would be really tough but I have been able to eat and not feel left out.

I will write more but for now I need to start the pasta salad. My Partner in Crime (Amanda) said she would like some so I will make it today.

Oh, Echo, it's so good to hear from you. I've missed seeing you and reading your blog. I'm happy for you. My brother "Barney's friend Chris" had that done last year and has done wonderful. Please talk to him some time. I'm so jealous of all of yall up there. I've always wanted to go to the OXB! Maybe one day! Have fun and take care of you.

I am very happy for you and am glad that you are doing well. The surgery is one of the greatest things that I have ever done. Let me know how everything goes.
