Prayers Needed!



Good morning to all my lovely friends out here in this awesome world of blogging!
Just read an email from my son that Kaci blood sugars are out of control for more than four days now and they have been up with her the last four nights.
For reasons unknown her sugars go way up and then way down....hearing this and being her grandmayellowhair it just eats me alive knowing what this precious sweet baby goes through each day and will go through until they find a cure.
So many of you were kind enough to read and comment on the post I did not to long ago called A Letter From My Son!
I can not thank you enough for all your beautiful comments about Kaci and supporting the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation.
So many of you and your loved one's live with this and know how horrible it is to have this.
My oldest son Chad, Kaci's uncle has had this since he was 13.
Since my heart is so heavy this morning with her and my brother Gary too I of course turn to my best friends for their prayers.


I also stopped by Mumsy's Site this morning and if you have a moment read her post about a precious young baby. Mumsy is a special lady that has done so much for so many children. After reading this is when I decided I should do this post...


Kaci you dear sweet baby I hope that all these prayers sent your way will make you feel so much better so you can start back to school and meet lot's of wonderful friends like I have found.
Love and blessings to all,
Maggie

Discombobulated Part II

Hello everyone hope you had a great weekend. Wanted to continue from my last post about being Discombobulated!

Remember my friend Alan told me He was so discombobulated he did not know what to do. Well I had no idea at the time what he was talking about and the first thing that came to my mind was he saying he is constipated. lol...Lord knows I had never heard this word and why I associated comstipation with it I have no clue. Do you do that too?

Ended up after listening to the nut he was telling me that his life was upside down since his son had moved back home with a lot of his things and a dog the size of a pony that lives inside. lol

Alan's home is a small older house built in the 1800's. No closets and accomadations for a oversized dog or anyone besides himself.

Well then after I realized what he was saying I told him I too was discombobulated because the owner of the ranch I live on rented out the guest house and moved some of her pieces into my home. I showed you the antique twin beds and how big they are in my last post. These beds now take up my sitting room I had in my bedroom. So to make room for them I moved my wicker into the front room where my round antique dining room table sits.
I had them put the Round Antique Table in the corner by the fireplace. I think it looks out of place since it was in the middle of this side of the living room.
Some of my wicker they put upstairs where I am going to try and have my bedroom by winter time.




On the other side of the room they moved out my chairs that matched my sofa and put her pink chaise and green striped chair. Along with a pink ottoman.
Doesn't really match my sofa so I may have to do some more changes...lol
Love this comfy chair of hers with green stripes..it matches my walls really well.
This is looking at the other end of the room from where my wicker sits.
After much moving around by my brothers and friends I had to put some of the larger pieces in the barn.


See how crowded everything is now. Please do not enlarge pictures and see all the dust and cobwebs...lol
Here is Tinkerbell trying to sharpen her paws on my table. Poor baby does not know there are none there to sharpen. This table and another one is her favorite place to scratch away.


So now you can see why I am Discombobulated like Alan. Too much in one room...if I could ever get well I could maybe get the upstairs cleared out and make a bedroom and sitting room there. That would help a little with this room.


I am still hurting a lot but go back to College Station to see doctors on Tuesday and September 8th.


My computer must be discombobulated too because it took me two hours to load these pictures where it usually would only take make 15 minutes. Jeezzzz Marie!!!!


Oh I can not wait to do a post about the young lady that now occupys the guest house. She is a screen writer hiding out here to write for a year.  We got to spend some time today together and I found her to be a very sweet adorable young lady. Looking forward to reading some of her work and maybe she can get me back into writing my book.


Love to all

Discombobulated!

Look at these twin antique beds!
Headboard with woman's face!
Foot board with same design!


As most of you know I live in a farm house that is over a 100 years old. The lady that owns this ranch lives in Nevada and I have worked for her and the Sheriff's Dept for the last four years.
What does this have to do with these beds? Well on this ranch there is another old house that she used when she came to Texas. It had these beds in it along with some other beautiful pieces.  She decided she wanted me to find a renter for the place and for the last month I have been dealing with taking rental applications. We finally decided on a very beautiful young lady that is a writer looking for a place to live and write. Can't wait til I can do a post about her. You will love her.
So guess who gets most of the furniture in the other house moved into her house. Yep that would be me.
My house was already full of my furniture and antiques so now I am looking like a hoarder.
These two twin beds are made with special long mattresses so the beds are huge. I had to give up my sitting room in my master bedroom in order to find a place for these beauties.
In my sitting room was a wicker sofa, chairs, and several different wicker tables. The guys are moving this all around trying to find room for everything and since I can not lift I am getting really bewildered befuddled flustered confused and lost.
After they leave I call my friend Alan thinking he can calm me down because I know longer have the house that I have worked hard to make a warm inviting home
. He answers the phone and I can tell right away that this is not the funny crazy Alan that can cheer up even an Old mean junk yard dog.
We have not talked in weeks so I asked what was wrong! He said, "Maggie I'm so discombobulated today that I don't know what to do!"
I am on the other end thinking what the sam thunder does he mean by discombobulated! He then starts explaining to me that his son and DL are seperating and son has moved in with him.
Oh Maggie you just would not believe what it is like to have your home completely messed up with someone elses furniture and things all over the place.
I then laugh and of course he wants to know whats so funny because you have to know that Alan is a very very neat person and to the point that he and his girlfriend have not married because she can not keep her place tidy.
I said, "Well honey that's why I called you today because I'm so discombobulated!"
What are the chances we were both dealing with the same problem except thank goodness my furniture does not come with a live in and I learned a new word today DISCOMBOBULATED!
Now Dan has tweaked my kitchen who is going to tweak the rest of the house!
I will take pictures of the mess and see if we all can figure out how I can get my house back!
Here's hoping your not Discombobulated today!
Sweet Dreams
Maggie

Summer Is Almost Over!

Not too many more days and summer will be over! I have admit this is one summer I will be glad when it ends. As I mentioned in my earlier post I was lucky enough to travel to Austin to see my grand babies and here they are in their neighborhood pool showing me what they have learned this summer.
Kaci and Bailey started the 3rd and 1st grade today and I can not wait to talk to them and see how their first day went.
When they weren't swimming we all stuffed envelopes for the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation.
Does this look like a thousand envelopes? That's right we stuffed a thousand and just the week before they had already stuffed a thousand. I am so proud of them helping such a worthy cause.
Kaci kept having to check her blood sugars while I was there and taking her five shots a day but never once did I hear her complain about it.


After we stuffed envelopes Bailey and his dad went to a big department store and stood out front and raised money for The Boy Scouts. You should of seen how darling Bailey was asking people if they wanted to buy some popcorn for the Boy Scouts. Too cute....who could turn him down. lol
Of course before he left his big sister had to give him something to remember her by.
The look on his face is priceless!


Love to all

Dan and Kaci's Ideas for my Kitchen!



Take a look at the fabric Kaci, my granddaughter, found that she liked for my kitchen!


Hello everyone,
I hope you had a wonderful weekend and stayed as cool as possible in these triple diget tempertures.
It has been over three months since my accident so this was the first weekend I was able to drive to Austin to see my son and his family. Three months without kisses from your grand babies is just a little much to handle.
Made the trip there fine! Except for a lot of pain but still l enjoyed my trip. Hopefully tonight I can do a post about it.


Today I wanted to share with you a email that Dan from Yesterday Once More sent me. He is just the sweetest guy out here in our blog world and he agreed to Tweak my small country kitchen.

Maggie,

I bet you had given up on hearing from me, but this is the e-mail you have been waiting on. Now that you are feeling better maybe you will feel like doing a little tweaking. These are the ideas I have for your kitchen...some are easy and some are not. You can choose which ones you would like to tackle.



* 1950's Theme



* Make a curtain for under the cabinets and window above the sink that is reminiscent of the 1950's pick material with pastel colors.



* Fill Toms jar with peanuts in the shell



* Paint red walls yellow



* Hang a wreath on pantry door to add color



* Leave all the walls that are white white



* Group collections together for bigger impact...especially black figures...they could be grouped on top of glass cabinet or on corner white cabinet.



* Hang old family pictures preferable from the 1950's on the wall coming down the stairs



* Display collection of crocks, if possible, on the stairs...one on each stair



* Paint a runner coming down the stairs or stencil a pattern of your choice on the stairs.



* Good accent colors to the yellow are pastels and reds it goes well with all those colors.



If you have any questions, let me know and I will help you in any way I can. If I think of something else you can do, I will let you know.



I am so glad that you are feeling better and that all of your tests came back normal. I haven't been able to visit your blog as often as I like. This summer has been crazy. When school starts I will have more time...I hope.

I think of you often and pray that you will be back to work soon.

Take care and don't work too hard!

Love,



~Dan~

I love these ideas and can not wait til I can get started. Not sure about Kaci's fabric because Dan mentioned pastels so I will probably keep looking. I have to say though Kaci for 8 has a good eye for decorating.



Go to this link Dan Is Tweaking Me! to read the post I did in June about my kitchen. Here is one picture of my tiny kitchen.



Have a great day everyone.

I also want to Thank CSN for giving me this opportunity to offer such a generous giveaway.  They are really great when it comes to supporting blogger's.


Also I have to tell you that Ms. Pearl made a small appearance yesterday and will post about it soon.
I was beginning to think the hit on head killed her. It did slow the ole woman down a tad. lol


I hope you all have a well deserved beautiful weekend filled with everything you love.
After three months of yearning to see my grand babies I will see them tomorrow. Am I excited. You bet!


Oh I know that you all have been praying for my brother, Gary, well good news he was able to get insurance yesterday and it becomes effective September 1st.  I love you for all your prayers.

Too Darn Funny!



Good morning everyone!
If you don't do anything else today you have to watch this clip "Don't Bungee Jump Naked"....I have had this in my inbox for a while from my friend Pat. We worked together as Officers in a Texas Prison. One of these days I have to write a post about some of the things this woman did while we were locked up together.
I feel like a duck without water today but this cheered me up! So I had to share it with you.
Enjoy and be sure you turn your speakers up! The lady in the video is I believe a former Ms. America and she calls her husband Left Brain!




Love to all

Emergency Blog Contact

Go to Shell's Bungalow Bing Blog  and pick up this button for your side bar. She wrote a beautiful post the other day about one of her blog friends going MIA in blog land and she is worried about her so she contacted our famous and talented LuLu Kellogg of Coastal Sisters to come up with a Emergency Contact Button.
If you post this button on your sidebar and for some reason you have not posted in weeks and we get offended or worried about you then we can contact your emergency contact.


What a sweetheart you are Shell to come up with this idea and the button LuLu is just beautiful. Perfect for this cause..... two hearts. How LuLu comes up with her creations is beyond me. Here lately I can't make a decision on what toilet paper to purchase.
Shell says, "thought it would be good for us to have an Emergency Contact on our sidebar. Chose and inform ONE blog friend OR an Email Contact under the button that can be reached in an Emergency. Don't forget to email your contact and advise and Post the Button and a link! ~~


Shell mentioned LuLu is under the weather but she still took the time to design this Button. What blog friends do for each other is amazing.
Be sure and read the post that started all this too. It will explain what I am trying to tell you in my post but not doing a very good job of it.


I keep promising you Maggie will be back but I am beginning to wonder that myself.  The doctor does not know what is causing me to be so sick so they are going to do blood work.
Also my heart is breaking in half because my baby brother Gary most likely has Throat Cancer and we will not know for a week or so because he lost his job in April and now they won't do anything until he can get insurance which at the earliest will be Sept 1. His lymph nodes have been swollen really bad for a while now and the doctor in Houston thinks it is cancer but yet sends him home. This doctor is definitely not a blogger.  Sending out those prayers again.
Don't forget to enter my CSN giveaway time is running out!
Love to all

How Do You Undo a Curse!

When do you think I will learn my lesson? My last post I had fun with a little ole lady having gas at the therapy pool….it was all in fun. Did not mean anything by it but let me tell you be careful what you put out in the universe.




Since Thursday night I have had the big D word! Yep Diarrhea and I mean the kind that makes you start thinking is this how I going out of this world, on the pot. I thought of Elvis dying in his bathroom and looked around at mine and wished it were cleaner.



Honestly I never seriously believed in Voodoo or cruses but I am starting to reconsider my thoughts on this and believe that some fool out there has cursed me big time. Look at what all has happened to me since the end of April. Now I have the D word from hell. I tell you I have never not even with the prep of the colonoscopy had I run like this to the bathroom. All night Thursday, Friday, Saturday and part of today. God I thought I was going to die. My girlfriend Sharon brought over some Imodium yesterday and I have just about taken the whole package. I was desperate. A person could die from all that crapping.



At one time during the night I even considered making a pallet near the commode but since my back injury my floors aren’t for sleeping on so I just kept the running back and forth. After nearly a whole box of Imodium I feel like it might be over but whom in the heck knows. All I know is this has been the weekend from hell and I am starting to think I know who is behind all my luck.

Remember I had to get that crazy woman out of my house because she would not pay her rent until the end of the month and how filthy I found my home when I approached her about the rent. She went off on me and started waving her big floppy arms around and sticking her finger in my face. Do you think all that waving and dancing was some kind of spell she was putting on me? Since that day my life has been upside down.



So how does one undo a curse? Good question! I guess that if I can stay off the commode long enough I will google that question.



And you know what is really strange since my accident. Ms. Pearl has gone into some deep dark hole and has not come out. It’s like she knows better than to confront a curse. All I know is I want my life back and Ms. Pearl better get herself out of hiding and do something about what ever the heck is going on in my life.



By the way how was your weekend?



Don't forget to enter the CSN giveaway for $70.00 Gift Certificate. Just click on the U Matter Giveaway on the side bar.



Sorry I have not been blogging or catching up with all of you.  One of these days my life will be normal again.

What Would You Have Done?





What’s going on in your world today? Is this not the hottest summer ever? Days like today make me wish I still lived on the beach and could just go jump into the waves. The way my luck has been running though I would probably meet up with a jelly fish or Mr. Undertow himself might be lurking waiting on me.



Today is supposed to be my last day of pool therapy but since I called in sick last week they might make me make those days up. I am hoping not because seeing me in a bathing suit is like watching a rerun of  Lucy and Ethel and I am Ethel. Anyway you get the picture. I will spare you the visual tour this morning.



My question for you today is what would you have done in this situation? When I first arrived for my pool therapy yesterday the young instructors of course made little comments for all to hear about me skipping last week. I had nothing to hide so I just told the truth that I had been sick for over a week and was not sure if what I had was catching so I did not want to get in the pool with everyone and spread my germs. They seemed appreciative of that and we did our hour of exercise. Upon leaving the pool an elderly lady (well older than me) stepped in front of me to climb the steps out of the pool. I thought nothing of it because I would of let her go in front of me anyway. Well Lord help us all she takes a step up on the first step and lets out the loudest fart this side of Houston. Then before I could hold my breath she does another on the next step. Good gosh I honestly did not know what to do because I was thinking everyone probably thought it was me because I was the one talking about being sick. Then before I knew it she was popping out farts like a bag of popcorn. Now besides being terribly embarrassed for her I was about ready to pass out from the smell. I just stopped on the second step and froze for a minute not wanting to turn and look at the others.



After all the popping stopped I guess it was over with because then she walked over to her towel and left the room. She never once stopped and took credit for what she was doing. Haha If only Scarlet would have turned to me and said, “Excuse me or something!” but no not a word. I still don’t know if the others in the pool knew it was not me or not. So now in a few hours I have to return to the scene of the crime.



As you can see I have no life now. I am writing post about elderly women forting while leaving the pool. I know what your thinking jeezzzz Mags what has happened to you.



Now that’s a question for another post. I am going stir crazy so I should enjoy my trips to the pool even though every time I walk in the room I think I am an extra in the movie Cocoon.



Ok has every one entered the CSN giveaway on my previous post? You know seventy dollars will get you something nice at their stores. I only wish I could enter it. Haha



Well guess I should get off here and get my big butt in that small bathing suit. I swear that thing has shrunk in just this short time.



No word from the Sheriff about me coming back part time so I guess it will be after my pain management sessions which are what they have me scheduled for after the pool therapy. Who knows anything about pain management and what all is involved with that?  Also could use some advice about workmans comp just email me if you have any. lol



Yesterday at the post office the Post Master of our tiny little post office told me her husband was thrown off his horse two days ago and broke 6 of his vertebras and here I was crying over two. I told her honey you had better be patient with that poor guy because I know it will be a long road for him before recovery. They told him the very same thing nothing can be done for you but lots of bed rest. Poor guy!



Okay I promise I will get a life and start writing again

Love to all

My Friend M.E.

Today I thought I would share with you the sweet artist that painted my headboard picture. Mary Ellen Shipnes was a dear friend of mine and a gifted artist.
To all her friends and family she insisted in being simply called M.E.
Meeting M.E. changed my life forever.
She opened my eyes to all the beauty surrounding us in everyday life. After knowing her I always looked at everything in color. No more black and white in my life.
Her home here in the country was definitely M.E.  Every room was painted in bright colors and just like most of her paintings.
This painting of hers hung in the dining area notice the bright wall.
The Mermaid above this was a chandelier that hung in a sun room off of the kitchen.


This was the side door leading into her beautiful kitchen.
These flowers were always my favorite. Her gardens were as colorful as her home.




Here is M.E. wearing her favorite colors.











The reason I wanted you to meet M.E. beside the fact that I loved her dearly but she introduced in to the world of Mola's.  My giveaway tomorrow is one of the Mola's that she and I picked out together and I know that M.E. would want one of you to have it.  If she were here with us today she would be thanking all of you herself for the kindness that you have shown her friend Maggie.
Mola's are handmade by the Kuna Indians in Panama.
The fabric panels are most popularly used as wall hangings, eye catching pillows, skirts, men's shorts and hair bands. Like M.E. just use your colorful imagination in using yours.
Be sure and enter to win one of these Mola's the giveaway ends tomorrow.
Just click on the Mola on my sidebar and it will take you to the post to enter the giveaway.
Also while your clicking on giveaways on the side bar be sure and check out all the others I have of my friends that are having their giveaways. I just added Susan's last night from Art of Mine. This is her first giveaway and I can not tell you how excited Susan is about this giveaway. So be sure and go by and pay her a visit.
Before I go I wanted to also show you a few things I have gotten from my lovely friends out here who wanted to send me some get well wishes.
Lisa at The Davis Dialogues made this for me. I carry it everywhere I go in my purse. Isn't it just the cutest little bag you have ever seen. Thank you honey for sending me this I love it.
Marydon the sweetie from Blushing Rose sent me this lovely tea cup and special tea bags with some beautiful sachets. Now who can not get well sippping tea out of this pretty set and thinking of all of you.
Thanks Marydon for thinking of me. I really love my gift.


I have to tell all of you how sorry I am for being so behind in my visit's to your sites. I hope in the near future I can get back to blogging the way I use to. This past week after my two procedures I have been sick not sure if they left one of their camera's in me or what they did but besides the pain in my neck and back I don't feel like Maggie. Strange Ms. Pearl has not come out in a while. Maybe she is to afraid to since Maggie does not feel good. lol
Dan sent me his email for tweaking my kitchen and I will have to share that with soon. He is such a sweetheart.
Also how can I ever thank all of you for your response to my son's letter about our darling Kaci. Your kindness and understanding has truly meant the world to me.
Some of you have left comments about me writing something funny. I promise I will do my best to get over whatever it is I have caught and get back to Ms. Pearl or someone soon.
As always
Love to All,
Maggie

Golly Jeezzz Am I Loosing It!

I am telling you it is a good thing I don't have to worry about this because the way my mind is working I would probably not know which room was the bedroom.
Yep if it's not one thing with me it's ten dozen others. Lately I can not remember whether I am coming or going.
I woke up hurting about 3:00 am this morning and crawled over Tinkerbell to get out of bed so I could take one of my pain pills. Low and Behold they were not on my coffee table in my bedroom where I usually keep them so I go to my purse and their not there and for the next 45 minutes I am tearing my house up looking for those darn pills.


Your going to think I am crazy but I looked in places that not even I would think to look but I have heard and read that sometimes when people are having memory problems they put things in some seriously weird places. I looked in my freezer, in the refrigerator, bathroom cabinets and even crawled on the floor in my bedroom thinking maybe they rolled under my furniture. Finally after almost not being able to get off the floor I decide to give it up and take another pill that was also for pain but not quite as effective as the one I have been taking.



So being the worrier that I am I laid in bed and replayed the day trying to think what in the world could I have done with those pills. I remember I finally washed that silly electric blanket and thought that maybe when I walked by the table with the pills on it somehow they jumped inside the blanket and I washed them. I know silly idea but I have washed my cell phone before so anything is possible. Right?



I checked the washing machine and no pills. So the hunt was on again when I got up this morning. It is very upsetting to know that you can loose something so easily. Good God this getting old is so for not me. What an ordeal! I could write a page telling you all the places I looked but you would really think I am crazy if I shared some of those spots with you. Finally gave up and about 5:30 this evening I am getting hungry and I open the little kitchen closet and yep up there with my canned goods are my pain pills. Who would of thought in with the canned goods.



Darling this is just one example of my memory problems. I just hope I don’t forget that I have a blog that needs some attention now and then. Lol

Hope everyone had a good relaxing weekend. I got lucky again and got a visit from my son Chad who lives in Dallas and my daughter Christi from Austin. Needless to say I enjoyed every minute they were both here. They took me to the movies to see Salt with Angelina Jolie and of course on the way home they both laughed because they had to explain the darn movie to me. Confusing to say the least. Give me a good ole comedy with Diane Keaton where I don’t have to think is about my speed now.



I do remember I am having a giveaway so if you have not entered please do so. It closes soon.



Sweet Dreams
