Away for a long time

It seems like I have been away for a long time. I left on Thursday, 3/19 right after work to go to the Dakotas Walk to Emmaus. I got back from that late Sunday and went to work on Monday morning. Yesterday (Tuesday) I had to spend the night in Watertown for my job and worked a 12 hour day. I am ready for the weekend.

We (Frank & I) are going to the show in a few minutes. He wants to see Taken and it is on at the local theatre. It looks like a decent show, so I will report on it.

Besides spending time with Charlie (my labra-doodle) and Frank (my spouse), I also like to quilt and read. I will try to include some pictures of Charlie, Frank & my quilts in the future.

I am currently working on a bedspread quilt for my son Paul and his new wife Tami. It is a challenge since I am quilting each row as I add it to the quilt and doing it on my Brother Pacesetter PS2500, just a regular sewing machine. I haven't been able to work on it for a week now, so I am anxious to get back to it and get it finished.

I better close for now and get ready for the show.

Thoughts on a Friday Night

The work week is over and the weekend is here. That means something very different in a house with a pastor than it does in most houses. Saturday for the pastor is a day of rest and preparation for Sunday and Sunday is a day of work.

This has been quite a week. On Wednesday, I had 2 tests, an MRI and an EMG For about 2 months I have been having a numbness in my upper left thigh and the doctors were hunting for the cause. The thought before the tests was a pinched nerve, but the question was where? The tests, show no pinched nerve, just an inflammed nerve. Treatment options were cortizone shot, pills, or both. I elected the 7 day dose pack. For those unfamiliar with that, it is 7 pills the first day, then 6, then 5, then 4, etc. Only time will tell if I have a shot sometime in the furture. The doctor says it is not something that will get worse without treatment, so I will just wait & see.

Enjoy the weather for the next few days. I AM going to get my car cleaned out and washed. It is a real MESS.

How to Begin

This is a first for me. I have considered doing it for a long time, but today I decided to go for it. I don't know how often I will post, but hope to continue. Please feel free to give me feedback on my posts.
