It's MARCH which means it's MS AWARENESS MONTH!
I'm busy forming my team for our annual MS WALK here in TN.  This year I'm walking in Murfreesboro instead of Nashville due to a previously planned shower....
In the mean time I've learned GREAT NEWS and celebrated 2 birthdays!  
My daughter turned 29 and announced the arrival a of sibling for Jersey around October!!
We also hosted Jerseys 2nd birthday...A Carnival Theme!  
We're planning a couple of baby showers 
I FINALLY started a home-school 
curriculum with the Jersey girl all in the last month! 
 Received two letters and one contract to pray over about publishing my book!! 

Had a re-vision surgery on my spinal simulator which....(clearing my throat) has not been the greatest experience !  Don't get me wrong...the simulator is great...WHEN it's working.  Mine obviously had
a malfunctioning charger paddle which I am financially responsible for!  Who knew an implant had a 5 year warranty put the other parts only carried a one year??  Crazy ~ but then ~ hasn't that the
way my life has been!!  If it was too easy.....I'd be suspicious! 

This past two weeks I've had the opportunity to share over 1000 tags with the MS community!  The initial design came from Leigh at Heartfelt Perfections a few years back when I was first learning Digital Imaging and creating.  Thanks to her freebie, I've been able to share this little diddy with MS'ers, MS family members, MS Communities and have been asked now to design my own!!!  YEEHAW! 

So.....Here's a few pictures of the past month and what's been going on:

My Spinal Revision Surgery


Jerseys Carnival Theme 2nd Birthday:

Stephanies & Jamies Big Announcement:

I ordered this pillow from  I love anything personalized!
Find it ODD that I put "GROWING IN LOVE?"  I think not!!  A mother knows!!
This is when she made her announcement!!

For some reason Stephanie has been all about brown boots lately....even before
Jamie got her another pair for her b'day!  
One things never outgrow your COWGIRL BOOTS!

The following day while in the Home-school room, Momma to be asked MEME to grab a few quick shots to share Jersey's news: 


It was a quick photo moment and the funny thing was Jersey kept putting the "blue boy" triangle on Stephanies belly!!.....Could we finally be getting a boy in the family??  


Anyone who knows me is aware that Kid Rock sings a song that I fell in love with years ago....
The title is Single Father Part Time Mother.  Well.....I just reverse the father/mother!
I love this song....honest, true and I've loved his music even though he does have some R rated graphic words....I just close my ears to them....This song helped me during a low period as a single parent and for that I'm thankful!  I am, after all, a baby boomer and we love our music era's!!  
My Daddy and stepmother Trish, surprised me with two tickets to see him in Nashville a few weeks ago!  WHOOO HOOOO!!  What fun!!  The boys couldn't make it so I asked Alyssa Kaye and she was more than willing to tag along......tag along.....the girl was rocking it out with me and at one point said, "OMG, I GOTTA GET HIS CD!!!"  it was too funny!  We were blessed that someone in Customer Service was kind enough to assist us to the elevator (so I didn't have to walk all the way up) and in doing so......upgraded out tickets!!! OH MY GOODNESS!!!  They were amazing!!  No need for the zoom lens!  I took some pics from where our seats were and after that....I had to jam!!!  
Hank Williams Jr made his special appearance too!!


"cutting some sounds" on the keyboard old-school style

We both had spray-on tattoos...mine was an eagle across the chest -
an old joke between the kids Dad and myself.

Now that's pretty good seating for this chick who can't see without her tri-focals!!! lol

He is very very patriotic!!  He salutes our men & women in uniform from home to overseas.
From Police officers (yes even those that arrested him) to firemen!  

What a night and THANK YOU ALYSSA for being my date!!  
Oh....she was my date the night before at church for Valentines too!!! 
Daughters are great to take everywhere!!!
She got tickets to our church World Outreach in Murfreesboro to hear comedians
that had been on Jay Leno and are professed Christians. 
 It was a night FULL of 
LAUGHTER!  Johnny W!  



It's A GIRL!!! 
Her name is Zelda!!

 Welcome to the family sweet 4 legged baby! 
I'm so sorry you were previously abused and so timid around everyone.  It's nice to see how far you have come in less than a month and are learning true human compassion!  


Then I get a phone call that I've won 3 tickets to the preview 
in 3D

OH MY!!!!  Okay, so I watched the original Oz as a kid and again with my children...but this is over the top, superb, amazing and the digital effects should be AWARD WINNING!!!  I will pay to go see this movie again, and again!!  I never do that!  It is rated PG which I greatly appreciate and you do not have to know the original OZ to understand this movie!!  GO ... GO WATCH IT!!!  
THANK YOU ALYSSA and TINK for allowing us to make it to be number 48,49 and 50 to receive our limited edition 3D Oz glasses!!  Collector Items for sure along with my ticket!

This is a couple of weeks old...but what happens when Meme is multi-tasking on the phone, computer and keeping her drawing!  Hummmmm.......



I've created so many of these and I won't post but a couple.  Feel free to email me or join me on if you'd like one specifically with your name or the name of a loved one!  
No cost of course!!

My dear friend Cindy wanted one with her loving Cat showing her support!  

 Coversize for free to snag all and leave some love! :)   

If you'd like something with your name on it just comment below and follow me here.  I'll gladly create one and again, for the hearts, all credit goes to Leigh at Heartfelt Perfections for so graciously giving these out a couple of years ago to designers!  Thanks Leigh!  

Finally to summarize the last few weeks....I've missed so much.  One thing I've learned is 

and finally....Angel Radomski, 19 went home to be with Jesus.  Angel learned in November she had a rare bone cancer and lost her battle on Feb. 11.  She was buried Valentines.  Angel was a niece  through my step-fathers daughter, Terri.
 Angel, like all of us girls loved the hot-rods and fast cars and enjoyed going to the mountains of NC for car-shows in cruise-in's with my Mom & Stepdad. Angel you will be missed and your battle alone for sometime...It was so sweet to have your grandmother Di come tell us of your accepting Jesus before your final days.  Rest comfortably and in His loving arms now.  

It was bittersweet as we said goodbye to Angel, such a young girl and on the same day we said goodbye to our own brother & stepmother 20 years earlier.  

never, never
