Oh, Happy Day!

I didn't get to take young son to the Dr yesterday. Hubby played hookie from work, and took him himself. That made me a little nervous, I like to hear the news firsthand! But it was all good. No surgery  required, yeah! He had no tears, there is still some water on the knee, but the body should absorb it on its own. I really expected them to aspirate the fluid yesterday, glad they didn't. Today, for the first time in two weeks, he's going to try riding on the track here at home. Considering he can't bend his right knee all the way, I don't know how he thinks he can kickstart a dirtbike, but I'm not going to stop him from trying. At least I'm home to monitor for problems. I love being a nurse, knowing what I should or should not be seeing!

Since the weather is holding out for a couple of days, more rain to come in later today, I've been outside working. Haven't taken the photos that I wanted to yet, but I snapped a picture of at least one page. This was soooooo hard to photograph! I don't have a good lightbox for picture taking, and this has a black background, so it wasn't easy!

I have to admit, this photo was taken many years ago, in my fat days! I don't think I ever looked really good in our military pictures, because I was unhappy with my weight. And 8x10 photos are hard to scrap! I kept this simple, I like the focus of a page to be the pictures. The sentiment was the front of an anniversary card I had in a box, it worked well on this. With a couple of stickers, this was quick-my kind of layout! I have a lot of pictures like this, taken at military balls, time to get them out of the boxes, and into my scrapbooks.

That's it for now friends, the lawn mower beckons me! Thanks for stopping by, have a great day!


  1. I hope and pray Avery heals quickly. And doesn't do further damage! Those were your fat days?!? You both look really good.

  2. I like the butterflies - papers and embellies! Thank you for joining us at Lasting Memories and our one photo challenge.

  3. Hi Cindy, I am glad that the prayers were answered on his knee. I knew it wouldn't take long for him to try again. Boys are that way. Mine never rode bikes, but the middle one did ride horses and he went to the emergency room a few times from being kick by the horse. He did have to have a shoulder completely rebuilt from an accident. He shatter the ball. He gave us all a scare, but only bruised the same shoulder. It hasn't stopped him letting the boys ride and him. You looked really pretty in your picture. Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri Friend.
