Want to see my water fountain???

Here's what I've been looking at all day. I've just been sitting on my porch, listening to the noise the water makes as it falls, talking to my hubby and my daughter Rue, and the last hour just knitting on some baby booties for a neighbor. How cool looking is this? and in a trailer park no less. lol I'm hoping it will attract the birds in the area. We have lots of them. There was a little lady bug on here but we finally had to rescue it when it got in the water.

Mia Bella's 3rd Birthday July 2.

We celebrated my grandaughter Mia Bella's 3rd birthday earlier this month. She wasn't feeling all that well but I think she had lots of fun that day. She loves music and can sing songs as good as the rest of us can. And smart. she is so smart. She does love her barbie dolls so me and Pa gave her like 5 or 6 of them along with a few other things. Of course she carried the dolls around the rest of the day.

On the phone the other day her mom told her that I was not feeling well and she asked me did I barf? hahahhahahaha she had been sick at day care and had barfed so just wondered if I had too. I absolutely love the things that come out of her mouth.

While she is Miss Independent and would rather not have to kiss anyone hello or goodby, she will give us knuckles when asked. Her brother Cole on the other hand is a lovey dovey guy. And smiling all the time.

Here he is with our dog Rayo. He would follow him around the house and would let Rayo lick him on the mouth for a kiss. his mom would say EEEEhhhhhwwwwww

Day 13

Well I'm starting on day 13 of a 14 day treatment for this bacteria that causes ulcers. I had horrible ulcers when I was only 24 but I finally got it under control after a few years. My dad had bleeding ulcers. Do they run in families?

Anyway, what I thought was side effects of my new diabetes medicine turned out to be the shocking return of the ulcer from hell. Tests from doc discovered that I needed this treatment so here I am. Almost done with it.

I am so full of pepto bismol and prilosec and tetracyline and this other medicine. My body smells like the other medicine. a slight salty sweaty smell. very faint but I am aware of it at all times.

even right after my shower. yuk. i sure do hope this treatment cures me of the bacteria. I will have to have another blood test to find out. Oh I was suppose to be doing this poop 3 day test but I haven't gotten up enogh nerve to do it. I mean if my ulcer is bleeding lets just get rid of it and get on with things already, right? why go poking at my poop. double yuk.

I just have not been myself for the last 2 weeks. I've been in pain and a not so good mood and haven't felt like really talking to or listening to anyone. But I can only live in my bedroom so many hours a day and then have to come out and greet the family or dog or fish whomever is here. I know I've been a bear to live with and I'm so totally sorry about that. When I've needed rest the most and peace and quiet, my house has been filled with folks, playing and having fun and me in my bedroom wishing someone would just come in and ask me if I needed anything, or to just sit for a minute with me quietly. Then I got over it. lol nobody even cared that I was sick and trying to sleep. Such is life and I';m glad I'm here to have it and now I'm going to bed with my hubby who is snoring softly and so it our chihuahua Rayo. Love my guys.
