Spoke too soon...

boy, I have had a rough couple of days. After posting the last blog, I have been so sick! I don't know if it was a reaction to the pain meds or what, but I have been so queezy and dizzy, it's not funny. And I have been really weak, can't walk much further than to the bathroom before feeling like I have climbed a mountain!! No fun!
I went to church today and sat through the singing. The pastor asks that everyone is standing for the reading of the morning's scriptures and I agree. But I thought he was going to read the whole bible before he finished! ha ha .
I have our Crown class tonight and I really want to go, since I didn't go last week cuz of soccer. I may not give much to the class, but I want to be around the folks anyway. This is a really neat group of people and I always look forward to meeting with them.
Now, work tomorrow, I don't know yet. I need to show up for my teacher's sake, I just don't know if I will make it through the day.
I may give the Dr. a call tomorrow and see what he suggests for all my weakness.

On a good note, I think I have lost at least 5 pounds!! not that you can tell, lol. And the way I am dreaming about my first meal, I am sure I won't have any problem finding the pounds back!

Well, gotta go, I talked Fred into getting me a strawberry milkshake on the way to class!! yeah!

Oral Surgery

I have debated whether to post a blog about this or not. So here is a warning to those who don't like the dentist and will get squimish about the details of my experience:

i had surgery on my gums yesterday. I had a very bad infection going on deep in my gums and they had to go in and clean it out. How was it done? He cut open my gums and scraped the bones clean. to be honest, he said the worst part would be when he used the needle to inject the novacaine. He was pretty much right. This is Freddy since my mom left the computer unattended. I am injecting this little blurb to let you all know I'm not as cold and evil as I probably come off in this blog.. I just don't have much time to hang out and be all family friendly. I work really odd hours so when I get home everyone's asleep and when I wake up everyone is gone. I can not be blamed for that....
I felt no pain. But I could hear the drill and the scraping. So if I started to visualize what i was hearing, that got a little bad. He also pulled out my wisdom teeth on the right side. The first one came out without me even realizing it. The second was a little harder. I could feel he had to twist around. And then I heard the ripping sound... that wasn't good. Again, no pain, just creepy.

Ok, I just noticed what Freddy put in. I am going to leave it in there as this is, after all, The Nassar News, and all family members are welcome to give their input... Do I make him sound sound evil?? hummm

Ok, back to the surgery. I slept well last night, THANK GOD! I woke up this morning with no pain but I am feeling real queezy and yucky if I spend more than a couple of minutes upright. That's why it's taking me all day to write this.

It wasn't nearly as bad as I thought. I think I will be ok for the 2nd round in 6 weeks.

5 hour coffee date

Can you guess with who?? I met with Karen Prenatt for "coffee' this morning at 9am. At 1pm, Chris called her to make sure she was fine. At 2:30pm, we said goodbye in the parking lot...

We kinda do this every time.
Well, to our defense, we don't get to see each other often and we have a lot to catch up on. If you know Karen, you know she is never at a loss for words,(ok, so neither am I!!), so we actually put a lot into those hours. And who knows when we can get together again. SO I am not making any excuses! :)

This helped me a little with my previously posted blog. (I miss my friends)

I wonder if Sharran is open for lunch sometime soon....

Valentine's Day

this day can be hard for some... pressure to step up and do something romantic when it's not your nature, a reminder that you don't have a "special person" in your life at the moment, getting your hopes up for something that doesn't happen...

I like Valentine's Day. I made up little cards on publisher, taped chocolate hearts to them and passed them out to the teachers and support staff at my school. I also ordered through the student govt. lollipops to be delivered to my kids in my class. So, I like to give on Valentine's day.
I am a person who is very emotional. I married a man who is not. God knows what he's doing when he pairs people up. You've heard it: we balance each other. But it can be frustrating at times, for both of us. He doesn't get why I get upset over things he finds trivial. I don't get why he thinks they are trivial!

We will be married 24 years this April. I have learned how to appreciate the real important things in life. Fred showed me that. And I hope I have helped him "feel" a little. It makes life fun!
Funny, I see a lot of me in Steph and a lot of Fred in Freddy. Andy seems to be a little of both of us, leaning more towards Fred, I think... I am so blessed to have the family I do. I hope my kids will know that there is nothing more important (here on earth) than family. That's where you are going to get everything you need: support, direction, love, laughter, encouragement.

Even though Fred refuses to acknowledge Valentine's Day as a holiday, I'm glad he makes the effort for my sake. He's a good guy, I think I'll keep him.

I miss...

my friends!!

1st Brandon is now our church home. We really like it there. The Sunday School class we're in is filled with very nice, friendly people that we are still trying to get to know. We even had a Super Bowl party at our house to help us put names and faces together...

But I miss the familiarity of KABC. I miss our SS class, stopping by to say hi to Shannon and her girls, talking with Sharran between SS & kids church (she is a GREAT story teller!), trying to catch Lisa down the Prek halls to say good morning to her, talking with Cindy or Terri (whoever had the turn) at the Welcome Center. And, of course, getting a hug from Bill was a must!

Change is hard for me, but that doesn't mean it's bad for me... I just need to look at it as an opportunity for God to show me something new.

And what is so funny to me is that Fred is adjusting pretty well. Probably 2 months after we started going there, he was being approached by the SS leader to consider teaching in the future.(God had placed people in this man's path that told him of Fred and his teaching) Today in class, I made the comment that we were happy to be in the class, and someone spoke out and said they were glad because they liked his "grape leaves" (from the party).
And who am I? Fred's wife... ha ha. Don't get me wrong, that is not a bad thing to be. It's just that I am used to doing my own thing and people knowing me because of the Children's ministry. So it's a little humbling right now for me. Again, not a bad thing...

I will figure out where God wants me. Maybe it's back with the kids, maybe not. In the mean time, I have to do something about staying in touch with the girls at KABC. I'm thinking a dinner & movies night? It's been a while!

Here's the Nassars! (sorta)

Fred and I decided to get "Simpsonized" Not sure if it "captured" me but i think Fred looks good.

Here are the kids:
Funny how you can do just about everything now with computers. But I have to admit, if you aren't careful, it sucks you in and the next thing you know, it's 3 hours later!!
