If Only We Could Purchase Time...

It has become very difficult to stay true to blogging lately.  I love to blog and visit those I've come to know and love.  But life has got in the way.  Facebook is easy and not nearly as time consuming, so I have been keeping up with that... kind of.  If you happen to have a FB page, please friend me!  

This is what we've been up to:

With Gary being retired, I am running the office on my own.  I do my own paperwork, marketing, testing, sales, service and answering the phone and scheduling.  I'm loving it, but suddenly, the office has become extremely busy.  It's a good thing...  I feel blessed to have such a productive business and to be helping people to hear better.  

The grandkids>   Jake is in soccer now and Rissi starts dance tomorrow.  Then there are sleepovers every now and again... though I haven't even had much time for them lately.



Gracie keeps me busy, of course.  She's my baby.

Gary and I celebrated our 12th wedding anniversary yesterday.  It was low key.  Church and then a small town festival with happy music, greasy food, and peanut butter fudge.

Gary has been having some health problems and goes in for a cardiac catheterization on Wednesday.  If you would remember, please say a prayer that he will not need to have bypass surgery.  

Grass is dying and the air is crisp.  Fall is tapping at the door. It seems we opened our pool just yesterday and its time to close it already.  Months have swiftly come and gone leaving me bewildered.  Honestly.  Its crazy how time flies as you get older.  

Our living room has been tore up in, like, forever while we await our new wall to wall carpeting.  Seems the installers are pretty backed up.  Everything is on hold till then.  It will be good to live a normal life again, if that ever happens.  Gary was in the middle of doing what he has to do to hang our big screen TV over the fireplace when his EKG and nuclear stress test came back negative.  So until we know the results of the catheterization on Wednesday we are in limbo on that AND our anniversary 'getaway' at the end of this month.  We take one day at a time.  



Looking for Trouble

Happy belated anniversary! What a sweet picture of you and Gary! Gracie, stay out of trouble, it is better that way for you and your mom!

Time does go by so incredibly fast. Honestly, I have no idea where the summer went. We were supposed to do one fun thing each month since we weren't taking a vacation, but we never got around to it, LOL :)

Will say a prayer about Gary and his cath.

I AM praying, let us know as soon as you can. This is an an excellent picture of Gracie. So are you still going to retire from your job? Maybe everything is just all in flux right now. I know Gary will be fine, but it is so stressful to both of you.

I understand. You have quite the juggling/balancing act going on. I will try to find you on FB, but I don't remember your last name. You can email me at bunkodeb.com.
*Praying all goes well for Gary.

Time
It speeds up
while we slow down

It's a pity
Now we are old enough to appreciate the good things in life -
They speed on by.

I hope Gary's test will come back OK, now if it does not, remember it is always better to know what's going on than not. Particularly with your heart.
Glad your business is going so well.

Samson Says: I'm trouble, Gracie. Wish I was there so we could play together and really show them what trouble we can be. Love you, sweet and feisty girl. xoxoxox Your Samson
