UPDATING!!

Ok, so I haven't gotten around to scanning pics of Andy... but a "dear friend" has been "encouraging" me to update, so here I am!

Let's see, what's new: most of you know I have been battling headaches for a few weeks. (thanks for the prayers!) the update on that is that I ruled out the meds for my rheumatoid arthritis, my eyes checked out ok, and my dr. doesn't think there is anything wrong with my neck. So, even though that doesn't sound very encouraging, (and I had a "poor me" moment yesterday) I haven't really had a headache today. The ophtomologist suggested wearing my reading glasses all the time to relieve eye strain and I THINK that is working. Time will tell, I guess.
Andy has been real sick since last Thursday. He had a fever between 101-102.6 for 4 days, which had me worried. No more fever, but he's got a respiratory infection and is still real weak. Not good for a Junior in high school with AP and honors classes. We'll do what we can to help him catch up... Got a text from Steph in Orlando saying she had the same symptoms... SHE can't afford to not work for a week while the virus runs its course, so PLEASE pray she recovers quickly... Freddy is Freddy you know...wait, something new about him: he is transferring from Regency to Westshore AMC. He says the change is what he wanted... hope he's right.

Fred & I have been talking and have decided to actively start planning on purchasing land in Texas. We hope to go this Summer on vacation and look around. (plus visit his brother!)

My work is about the same. Some good days, most kinda rough. I do come home with some funny stories to tell at dinner time.

Church is good. We joined First Brandon the first weekend in Jan. Now we are trying to find our place. The 1st thing is to try and get to know the folks in our SS class. That's why we are hosting a Super Bowl party. I have to admit, I am torn about this. In one hand, it's the right thing to do as we are trying to make new friends. On the other hand, I am going to miss hanging with the Ross, Caddells, and the rest of our friends from our KABC SS class.
Have I mentioned I don't do well with change?

Over all, I can't complain. Every night when I turn in, I thank God for my husband, kids, family & friends, and all that He has blessed me with. Even the little kids in my class.
God is good ALL the time!

If you buy some land I want pictures. You going to buy desert? Gonna put some cows on it? Gonna dig for oil? I would be willing to winter on that property if it would help you.

Sorry all of you guys are sick. Our whole house has had sinus and respritory problems for the last two weeks. This is the first day in two weeks that I've felt decent. Hope it gets worked out soon. BTW, I really miss you guys...a lot. And not to get real mushy or anything but reading what you posted on Birdman's blog Mr. Fred really kinda hit home with some things that me and my family are going through so thank you. God has given you a ton of wisdom and I appreciate it. Anyways, tell everyone I said hello.
