Hello! I wanted to share some photos that we took last weekend for homecoming. I have been so busy this week with pt and just getting back to the normal everyday life that I haven't even thought about updating my blog. Guess even though I say I am going to get better about blogging, really it is the last thing on my list and if I happen to get some extra time to blog then I will, if not then it is neglected. Sad, but true!Last weekend we had unseasonably cold weather for our area where we live, like 38 for the low and 50 for the high...maybe even mid 40's. It was homecoming for my daughter's high school. We went to the game Friday night and sat out in the cold. It was really hard on my still healing hand, apparently it does not like cold weather! Go figure! We managed to make it through and enjoy our game and our loss. As much as you can enjoy losing! So Saturday night was the dance for the school, we spent the day getting ready...
went and got our nails done, had lunch, went to a few stores to get last minute items, lotions, undergarments, gel shoe inserts for the insanely high heals Miranda insisted on wearing! Came home by 2pm and proceeded to get ready, I even did a little fluffing of the hair, good practice for my healing hand! We then had to go outside i n the freezing weather and take photos, too bad you can't tell in the photos that their teeth were chattering! This is Miranda's last homecoming, I am so excited for her to be a senior, it is just such a big milestone in life. Most parents are sad, but not me I know that there are bigger and better things to come for her! She will be so much more than what she was in high school, it is just such a small part of her life...of course you can't tell her that now, IT IS HER LIFE! Anyway here are a few of the photos from that evening.
The following photos are my daughter and her bestie, Amanda. They have been friends since kindergarten, they were in Girl Scouts together, she goes on family vacations with us, she babysits for us...she is like our second daughter. I will miss her as much as my own daughter next year when they go to college.

In my sparetime, I made the corsages for the girls and the guys. I use to work in a florist so I learned a thing or 2 about flowers...I have to say it was really challenging not having full strength in my hand yet to make these, but it was only for a night and the girls seemed happy!

I'm back

I know it has been about a month since I last blogged, but again I will use the excuse that I was busy!!! Actually I was busy for about 2 weeks then I had hand surgery so for the last 2 1/2 weeks i have been hanging around recuperating. I had big plans that I would blog everyday, but that didn't happen, instead I watched hours of Law and Order. Love that show, I had no idea it came on tv 4 hours everyday. I am not one to watch much tv but this time I just couldn't stop!!!
Anyway before my surgery I managed to cut some pieces for a card and have just found the time to put it together, plus it is great physical therapy for me to work on my fine motor skills, all the gluing and taping. It's nothing fancy but I am so in love with the fall colors, my favorite time of year!
This next picture is prove of my surgery and cast that I wore for 2 weeks. I am so glad that I am past this stage. This is not the most flattering photo, my hubby caught me mid sentence while I was holding his soda so that he could take a picture, I just didn't know it was going to be a picture of me!!!

I promise to get better at blogging! I just don't have enough to say on a daily basis to post and really I let all the other stuff get in the way!
