It's now OFFICIAL....we are moving back to Oklahoma. We are so excited to be rejoining ALL our family and old friends but VERY sad to leave behind the ones we've made here in Texas. I spent the first week after we found out crying myself to sleep at night. Sounds crazy, right? I mean, I'm getting to go back "home", be with all our family, be around my dear friends, and back in a familiar place. Why cry to sleep? It kills me to think about leaving my BEST FRIEND/neighbor. Kristie and I have become as close as two people can get. Our husbands laugh because we can finish each others sentences, we can each only say 1 word and completely know what the other is talking about, we help ourselves in each other houses, we are mothers to ALL our kids. It's going to be SO HARD when the time actually comes and we have to say GOODBYE!! However, to me it won't be a goodbye but a see you later. I know that we will ALWAYS stay close. I have said from the beginning of our friendship that it was a TOTAL GOD thing. He knew just what I needed in a friend when he placed her in my life. Her and the rest of her family will always be dear to us.

First, I want to say Happy Mother's Day to my wonderful mother and mother in law. God truly blessed me with a mother loves her children like no other. I know that there have been times in the past 34 + years that my mom and I didn't get along too well (teenage years) but I know she loved me still. I know I was a hard child to get a long with. I thought I knew it all, I was self centered, and had a mouth that ALWAYS had to have the LAST word. I know how tiring that is because I've created a clone just like myself in my sweet Madeline Paige. My mom is my best friend. I wouldn't have made it through half the things I've been through in life without her. I hope I'm half the mom to my kids as she was/is to me. I love you more than you'll ever know.

Well I'm still here. After spending 2 weeks in and out of doctor offices and hospitals with Madeline, I got to go to the doctor last Friday because of myself. A couple of weeks ago I worked all day in our front flower beds making them beautiful. When I woke up the next day my body was EXTREMELY sore. I don't think I had ever been that sore in my life. (Tells you how badly I am out of shape). I also noticed that my right forearm/wrist was very painful and hosted a HUGE knot. I began to ice it and take ibuprofen to help it heal. That weekend I went to Oklahoma to help a dear friend of mine clean out her father and step mothers house. She lost her step mom in November and her dad past away the end of March. Please keep her and her brother and half siblings in your prayers. So needless to say, there was not much resting of my wrist. A week later it was still hurting intensly. So much so that at night I couldn't go to sleep from the pain. I FINALLY decided to bite the bullet and head to the dr. I find out that I have SEVERE tendinitis and it needs to be in a splint for possibly 4 weeks. This thing is not comfortable and it's HOT!! I can't do anything with it on, I guess that's the whole purpose of it. So that's me.

I took Madeline to the pediatric opthamologist on Thursday to see if it could be her eyes that were causing the headaches. The doctor said if she is having trouble seeing and her eyes are having to strain to see then that could definitely cause her to have headaches.
