How time flies!

Sebastian had his 7th surgery in 7 months on Tuesday. He had his circumcision redone. This time he didn't have to spend the night. Lisa said he was really mad when he woke up! I would be too!!!! He is doing great though. He has really been happy - rolling all over the floor and arching his back and digging his feet on the floor to move around. We sure can't complain about him!

I just got off the phone with a friend of mine. She was telling me about this stuff called UMCKA by Natures Way. We get it at a store called Vitamin Cottage here in the Springs. It helps when you first get a sore throat and/or a cough. It comes in cherry or grape flavor. She swears by it. You take it 5 times per day. She also takes the tincture - a dropper full with a small glass of water also 5 times per day. I am going to go to the store tomorrow after I have my blood drawn and get some. I have found that when she tells me to get something for a cold and try it. She is usually right. I don't know about the tincture but at least I will get the cherry flavor and keep it on hand.

Bill has spent the last 3 weeks working on our yard. It is coming along. He has been working hard on it. He has fallen into bed every night and has hardly been able to move. We have the sod left to do in the back. We have even planted raspberry plants and are going to plant blueberry bushes also.

I would put pictures up showing what has been done, but I haven't taken any yet and I haven't figured out how to do that yet. Maybe in time I will do that. So for now all you get is me rambling on.

It is bedtime for me, and I can hardly keep my eyes open. Goodnight!

Okay, I am going to try this and see if I can keep it up.

Bill is golfing in Durango this weekend in a tournament. He called me last night and said he didn't do too well and was discouraged. He is hoping that he will do better today. He is then home for the week and maybe he will work on the backyard. (At least that is what he said he will do!) Emmalee keeps asking him for a back yard (of course with a little help from Grandma) and maybe with her asking he will do it.

As for me, I have been doing a little bit of everything; cleaning, sewing, making cards for the card swap, coloring, being a grandma, you get the picture. Kristiina and I are making all kinds of aprons to sell at Amy's store and we are trying to get them made, so we have both been sewing up a storm.

As for the coloring - I am making file folder games for the grandchildren when I have them here at my house or when I take them somewhere or for just in general. I also thought I would take some to Church just in case some children are bored and need something to keep them quiet! I am almost done with coloring them. Then to Office Depot to have the files laminated and then they will be done. It is a huge job to color them all.

While babysitting the other day, Dominic and Sebastian were sleeping and Emmalee and I went outside while it was raining. She played outside in the rain for at least 1 hour with her purple umbrella. She had a ball! She loved making footprints on the porch where it was dry.

Amy and Kermitt are doing great. They are both keeping busy with their own businesses. (that doesn't look right) Amy is still with the barbershop group and teaching piano lessons along with golfing. Kermitt still is golfing but not as much as he used to. He is flying airplanes and needs flight time but with the price of gas, the price has gone up per hour and it is more expensive than before, so he doesn't get the flight time as often as he would like.
