See, I said that I was really horrible at the blogging thing.  I have an excuse though...

 I have been really sick and was admitted to the hospital.  I have really bad asthma, but it was not that which caused me to be admitted.  I have been having severe chest pain, shortness of breath, wheezing, coughing, etc.  They have diagnosed me with having costochondritis and a partial collapsed left lung. I have to follow up with my doctor tomorrow who will refer me to the rhumologist.  I am praying that things go well.

Over the next couple of weeks, I will be posting some ATCs that I have been swapping on a craft website I am a member of called  I really enjoy being a member of the site and creating one of a kind art to trade with other swappers all over the world.  If you are not sure what an ATC is, it is an artist trading card.  You can do a search online and see all kinds and the definition of what an ATC is.

Well, hopefully, it won't be so long until I post again.

May the sun always shine to warm your heart so you may be a friend to someone in need.

Yeah, so I have decided that I really stink at blogging.  I just can't get around to posting everyday with all I have going on.  I will make an attempt to post as I can.

Right now, I am sitting at my mother's bedside while she is in the hospital.  She got admitted early Tuesday morning and has been here since.  She was admitted with severe chest pain and nausea.  Currently, we are now dealing with her blood sugar bottoming out, a slight fever and low oxygen levels.  She has extremely high blood pressure problems.  The doctor does not know exactly what is causing her problems.  She has gone from chest pain, high blood pressure problems to now low grade fever, blood sugar problems and low oxygen levels.  She is definitely giving her doctor a challenge to diagnose her.  Please keep her in your prayers.

Well, other than my 20 yr old daughter dating someone that I do not approve morally, my son a senior in high school, trying to work full time, taking care of my mother, being a devoted housewife and maid, church activities, basically, I am living a quite normal life.  I am thankful that I am able to do all those things.  I've always heard that God gives jobs to the busy people cause He wants them done.  Maybe, he needs to not trust me so much.  LOL 

Anyway, this has been my latest, so there is no guarentee when I will be able to post again.  Keep smiling and praising the Lord for His many blessings.

After spending the past week out of pocket due to sickness, I have decided that there is absolutely nothing on the television these days.

Last Wednesday, I was admitted to the hospital overnight to be able to get help with my severe asthma.  They had to load me up on prednisone both IV and orally. 

Since then, I have been just sitting around in the recliner taking it easy.  I have surfed the web so much that I am now officially bored.  I have worked on Facebook creating our church VBS event, I have addressed postcards, watched enough tv to make someone puke and now, here I am posting on my blog.  My husband has done nothing today except watch NCIS and the History Channel program about the Vietnam War.  I could be a true criminal just by watching NCIS. LOL Just kidding, I am not like that!

Why is it that all the broadcast channels want to produce are singing, dating, etc shows?  I am so tired of reality tv.  All the shows I would have watched during the next season have all been canceled.  So that goes to show that no one is as tired of the reality shows as I am.  In reality, those singers have their 5 minutes of fame, the dating couples never work out and the Kardashians are not a very typical family as they claim.  If I could have thousands of dollars to do what I wanted to do, I would find something else to do with it than put a show on tv showing me spending myself into debt, partying like I have no worries and dating some other wanna be famous person. To be honest, I really don't care!!!!!

What are your ideas with tv shows these days?  Why can't there be morally, honest shows that have good positive influences on today's youth and children?

     With a little over three weeks until our Vacation Bible School starts, I am in the final stages of planning and getting things ready.  I have lots of ideas and plans and I am hopeful that we can carry them out.  Our church is doing the Lifeway Club VBS theme of Space Quest
    We are trying something new this year in that we are going to run the Bus Ministry around the community.  I have designed and printed up some flyers to distribute to local ball parks, playgrounds, and schools.  On the flyer I have included the church telephone number in order for people to call to arrange their children to be picked up by the bus.
      Instead of having a big, expensive VBS Kickoff, we have opted to do a VBS Registration and Movie afternoon.  We will be registering the children and watching the movie Space Chimps. 

We will provide popcorn and koolaid along with some candy.  I purchased the movie myself when I found it on sale at the mall in Chattanooga, TN.  When I went to purchase the movie it was actually cheaper that was the sticker said, so I was very appreciative in knowing that things were working out great.  The Lord always knows what we need and when we need it. 
    Once we start VBS, I will be posting some pictures of some of the decorations, etc. 

   I hope you have a splendid day and may God continue to bless you in everything that you do.
