My Cute Panther

So its Spirit week at Brittany's school and today was Jungle Day. So Brittany was a Panther. Here is my cute little Panther (yes I know she is 16


Well I had my Mammogram and an Ultrasound today and I am okay :) See when I was a child I was burned on my chest and I have scar tissue on one side that is showing up in the pictures. But I will be fine. I go back in a year.

Please if you are due for a Mammo go have it done...Finding things early WILL save your life. Brittany's dance teacher had Breast Cancer last year and they found it in the beginning stages and she is doing great. And she isn't 40 where they recommend you start the Mammo's I have been going since I was 35....

Tired and the Weekend is just starting

Well I survived the Job Interview.. It felt like a place that I could work...BUT...they need someone with Excel experience while I know how to use it I am not a pro at it..its been 8 years since I took a class.. Guess I need to get me an Excel for Dummies book and read up on it...again. This seemed like a job that I could learn and grow from. That being said.. I think the Excel part has a lot against me..and I will be shocked if I am offered the job... I am not going to stress about it but let God take care of it.

After Brittany gets home from school she and I are heading to Great Wolf Lodge and indoor water park to begin out Birthday weekend celebration. We will be home Saturday Night sometime. I am looking forward to this. Sam (Britt's boyfriend) will be coming after work. And Cj and his girlfriend Brittany are either going to come tonight or in the morning. Of course when we get home I will post some pictures!

A Lot Going On

Boy I have a lot going on right now. I do have an appointment next Thursday the 30th for my Mammogram. I am a little nervous but I feel a since of calm too...

Tomorrow -Friday at 9:30 I have a job interview for a Receptionist position.. I am bit nervous about that too cause its a business with 9 Phone lines.. Not sure if all that is Incoming or not.... This is my first Interview after sending 24 Resumes/Applications.

And..... I am cleaning... Brittany's 16th Birthday Party is on Sunday. So today I am doing all my house cleaning. Friday Morning I have that Job interview and want to do my grocery shopping and then Friday Night and Saturday we are heading to Great Wolf Lodge to enjoy the Indoor Water Park. We have never been there and wanted to do something special for Brittany's Birthday Weekend.

Odds and Ends

So on Friday when I had my female check up the doctor said.. Do you need Birth Control? OH NO.. I don't take any... and she gave me that look like WHAT! I had to think a minute and said...Oh no don't worry my hubby is

Yesterday I went to a baby shower.. I tell you sometimes I wish I could have another baby just so I can play with all the new things they have out there..

I LOVE the thing that you put in the grocery cart that covers the handles and the whole seat..I remember working so hard to keep my kids for chewing on that nasty cart...

Another thing I have seen that I love is that wedge thing that holds your baby on its side..Back when I had kids we had to brace them with rolled up

I LOVE LOVE to shop for clothes too...Now I can afford the clothes.. Back when I had kids I barely could afford to dress my kids.. But man you can get some cute stuff for Good prices..

But instead of having a baby.. I will wait to spoil my grandkids to be one day... :)

Well I made it through the doctors visit.. But now I am even MORE nervous. They found a Nodule on my right breast. I have never had them find a Nodule before so now I am scheduled for a Mammogram. I could sure use some extra prayers cause I am really nervous about this. Even though I am trying not to be. One thing that this could be is that its almost time for my monthly.. So that is what I am praying!

Doctor's Appointment

Well today is the day that I dread. Its time for a Doctors appointment. My Female Checkup is past due. And you ask how past due? Well just 4 years. And before you start yelling at me. Remember that I am one of those BILLION that does NOT have Health Insurance. And I can't get it either. I was denied. The reason I can be denied is because my husband has a Self Insured Policy.

But thanks to God....He provided a way for me to go to our local clinic and just pay $10! Praise the Lord!

I am so nervous though. You would think after having 2 kids this wouldn't bother me at all but it does.

Cj is healing very nicely from his strep throat. Brittany is fighting a MAJOR cold :(

A Little Vent

So yesterday while I was at Farm Fresh getting Cj's medicine I needed to get my Prisolec.. So I asked them how much their 42 count box was.. Thinking they were a couple dollars more then Walmart but it was easier to just get them there.. They were $37 I told the lady NO THANK YOU! I would go to Walmart tomorrow. They cost $23 to $24 at Walmart... How can one place charge $13 more then another! I was a little bit mad! GRRR

Never a Dull Moment....

Yesterday both of my kids woke up with sore being a mom..I gave them both Sudafed and sent them off on there day..

Well about 1:30 Brittany text me.. Mom I really don't feel well (female problem) can you come get me.. I said of course... Wouldn't be a problem if my almost 16 year old child could take a Tylenol...So I get her at 2...she only missed 20 minutes of school... As I am getting ready to leave her school. Cj calls.. Mom can you bring me some more medicine to work?.. My throat is killing me... So being the good mom that I am.. I went to the job site and took him some medicine and looked in his throat.. Mind you I looked in it that morning and thought he looked okay looked in the afternoon and he was covered in white patches.. I said UGH CJ I think you have Strep Throat.. Then Cecil starts freaking out cause the DUMMY drank after him!...

So about 7 last night I took CJ to Med Express and sure enough he has Strep.. We moms alway know what is wrong with our kids..

I did learn a lesson yesterday I know the best time for getting a prescription filled at the drug store.. GO 30 minutes before they close.. Boy are they

I think I need therapy. Brittany's Birthday party is on October 26th. Today is the 13th and I am already starting to CLEAN for the party! Am I crazy or what. My husband of course likes it when we have people over cause things get done that I never do. I have cleaned my hutch, my dining room table, my desk and my scrapbook table all ready this morning. I stuck a Praise CD in and sang away and cleaned and told myself I could stop when the CD was done!

Normally I wait and then the days before the party I have worked so hard that I am exhausted!

First I want to start by sharing this picture from yesterday. It was too cute. My dog Sparky was laying with my Son asleep. My dog things he is human!

Well let me start by saying this is my first blog. I am surprised I haven't blogged before. I love reading everyone else's blogs. My Name is Sandy and I am from Virginia. I am a 39 year SAHM. My two children CJ (18) and Brittany(15) keep me very busy. I like to read, play on the computer and scrapbook. Oh my gosh I forgot that I am married too to Cecil we have been together for 20 years. I met him when I was 11 years old and he was 13 years old. I liked him every since then.
