This, That and the Other

Well, first things first. The surgery went well and I am slowly getting back to my life. My days of gorging myself on chocolate are over...at least it's been a few weeks and for me that might as well be forever. I'm still pretty sore and can't pick up the baby yet, but the surgery story and the gift basket I received are a post in itself. One of these days I will share! I have a few things I need to catch up on. I won a contest over at my super cool new friend Kerri's blog. It arrived a little while ago and I have loved reading it as I've been convalescing! A huge thank you to Kerri for an awesome blog and this great gift she sent. Thanks Kerri :D
Also, I have a couple of tags to catch up on. Kerri tagged me with a tag to show the fifth pic from the fifth pic file so here it is: It's Conner smooching his sister. Not the clearest photo, but the sentiment is there! Also In Time Out gave me an honest scrap award (soooo cool- thanks, love it!) but I have to name 10 honest things about myself. I just named eight random, but detailed facts about me, so I will keep this brief.
1-I have a temper
2-I feel bad about that
3-I can be sarcastic
4-I painted my toe nails and finger nails black in honor of my surgery
5-I don't paint my nails very well
6-I really want to jump out of an airplane
7-I don't like to cook
8-I like to win
9-I don't like to lose (yah, I really, really DON'T, but I try to be polite :D)
10-I check all the time to see if more people are following my blog...is that honest enough???
Thanks so much to all that have and if you haven't yet, just take a moment and click the mouse...it only takes a second. You don't even have to check my blog EVERY day or anything...it can be every other day...I won't mind :) hee hee (I'm pathetic)

*Also, my hubby has been a gem through this whole ordeal! The kids have both been sick, I've been down and I know he is just exhausted! Thanks babe!

Sooo glad the surgery went well! yay! I hope you are doing well and that you've had help with your kids and meals at your doorstep! If not, let me know, I'll kick a couple of behinds into geer for ya! Ha. Loved your "honesty" tag. You listed some fun things--I have a temper too! Must be from my German and Irish background! Take care.

So happy you're on the mend. You should have called upon your VT for something. oops! Getting nachos all over the keyboard. . .

Mina said...

I'm so glad that everything went well for you. Good luck convalescing!

I got tagged with the honest thing earlier, and posted today. I took a slightly different direction, though.

Christine said...

Three things:
1. So glad you're feeling better!
2. Thanks for your comment on my post - that gives me hope. Feel free to elaborate on what blessings I should be on the lookout for. :)
3. I'll follow yours if you'll follow mine... (very 2nd grade, I know)

Oh, and I love Faye Morrow Bell.

Donna said...

I'm glad you're healing and getting better. You'll be able to hold your daughter again before you know it! And you are so lucky you won Kerri's giveaway. I was hoping to get that book because it looked really cute, and I'm not even all that crafty or anything. I'm glad it's as good as it looked!

Erin said...

Thanks for finding my blog. I am so glad your surgery went well. My sister had her gallbladder removed a few years ago. I have never had the opportunity myself!

trish said...

I read Rachel's blog everyday I love it!

Alyson (New England Living) said...

Funny, I clicked to follow before I read your post! I must have been reading your thoughts.

Anyway, I hope you get well super, duper soon. Can't be the best time of the year to be out of comission.

Eileen said...

I just happened upon your blog and think your kids are just adorable. I like the temple picture! My husband and I were married there almost 17 years ago. And our littlest, our China baby was sealed to us there two years ago. Obviously, it's a special place!

good news on the recovery front eh? I especially wanted to stop by and say thank you for voting for my funny story at Blokthoughts. It doesn't look like I'll win, but its been fun playing along. I'll be offline for a few days so i wanted to make sure and say Merry Christmas in case I don't get back before then. So, Merry Christmas from the CaveHairs.

Logging onto your site for the first time today and thought I would say hello. The post you wrote prior to your gall bladder removal really made me laugh. However, on a serious note, I was also glad to see that everything went well and you are recovering nicely.

Tags are great, but sometimes I also find them a bit challenging...especially when we need to continually come up with new and interesting facts about ourselves. Sadly, my life is not always interesting. You did a wonderful job with your list, though. I especially liked #1 and #2...might just have to roll my responses together sometime too.
