I really don't feel like blogging tonight, but it HAS been awhile, so I wanted to just do a quick update.
It's been a beautiful few days here...nice and warm, and the leaves are turning, so it is just beautiful.
We had one of my brothers and his wife over the other night, so we cleaned the house like we hadn't cleaned it in awhile...and made a nice supper. I spent the next afternoon w/ K, and we just hung out and did fun things:) Library, an antique store, and coffee:) That evening, my OTHER brother and his wife came, and we visited and ended up having supper together. Then, we looked at old pictures. (more on that later)
Yesterday, a friend of mine called and asked if I wanted to do coffee...I said yes (I hardly EVER refuse coffee dates), and we had a nearly two hour visit. I had a few things to do, including go to the WI clinic to make sure that I don't have a blood clot in my leg. It has been sore since Tuesday, and I was worried about it..thankfully (well, maybe not thankfully, but at least it's not urgent), it's probably a slipped disc, which is odd, b/c my back isn't sore at all. I think my legs are getting better.
I wish I could update you more on our lives, but to be honest..I can't quite remember what I was going to update you on..back in September!!
I am following way too many blogs..I can't get rid of any..does anyone know how to do that??
We attended a wedding of a friend last Saturday. It was a lovely wedding, and we had a fun time. I even got Anker out on the dance floor a couple of times.
Well, on to the title of my post:)
A week ago this last Wednesday, I was at the bathroom at the library, when my engagement ring flew off. I hardly ever wear my rings, b/c they are too big, since i have lost weight, but I had worn them the day before, and I just left them on..well, it flew off. I looked EVERY WHERE..and i was soo upset! I thought for sure that I had flushed it down the toilet..never to see it again. Well, for the wedding we went to, I put on this cheap ring that i had bought years ago, but at least it looked decent. This past Wednesday, I was going out to grab something, when I SEE IT!! It was on the floor, right by closet, under my flip flop! I was sooo excited!! My SIL prayed that I would find it..but I assured her that it was never to be seen again!! Yes, she (well, really God did) had the last word!! LOL.
Also...back to my old pictures..From about the time I got my first real good (film) camera (about 1990-1991), I took a ton of pics...until about 1995-1996. Well, those albums, somehow got misplaced..and i was sure that they were in the garbage. Well, a few weeks ago..my sister tells me that the found some old albums of mine..I just thought that they were record albums. Well, low and behold..what do I see in the back of the Suburban? That's RIGHT!! My albums! Oh man..I wish I had a good scanner..I would put soo many pics on FB:) LOL
I went to Vernon to get an U/S done on my abdomen, and we found out that there is fluid on it..as well as in my pelvic area..lovely. I will see my specialist mid Oct. I also will have an Pelvic U/S on the 15th of October. You can get u/s's soo much quicker than you can here. Crazy!! My friend (who drove me) and I had a great time..sitting in Starbucks (well, outside, actually), talking in the sun...walking the mall, and checking out places on the way back.
I had a date night w/ Anker a few weeks ago..complete w/ candles, and table cloths!! We watched a couple of movies after. Yes, that is what our date nights consist of. I am considering going on PWD. I will check into that when I get back.
Will be having Thanksgiving at the ranch this year..my brother and his new wife will be there...should be fun. I will only be home one day, and then we go out there.
I am heading to Vancouver tomorrow. Was going to be going w/ Anker, but I found out that it is a 4 day thing (one appt that I thought was on Tuesday is on Thursday), so I am staying w/ my cousins, and try to enjoy some time in the big city. I will try to catch up w/ some friends while I am there.
That's about all for now, I think. Nothing really new on the job front..I had an interview, but I don't think that I got it.
