Well, I think I am well caught up on my tv watching.

I have watched everything. Old shows new shows. I watched cooking shows, building shows, remodeling shows, medical shows, and on and on........

I do have to say that TLC has become one of my favorite channels. I really like the Property Ladder; Flip That House; Little People, Big World; Shalom In The Home;Trading Spaces and Miami Ink. If you haven't seen any of.....check them out.

I saw Untold Stories of the ER last night. We actually watched a couple of these back to back. Some of the stories were really strange, others were interesting....strange, but interesting. The show does, however make you stop and think about how your life can change in just a small frame in time.

Anyway, this is what I have been up to. Rather boring, but relaxing. I have been over at the house a little, but it is sooooo hot that I can't stay long. I let the guys in the other day to finish the cabinets. They look so good!!! The contractor and the plumber will be back, hopefully, next week to finish up their work (installing the lights and fixtures). Then it is up to us to get the rest of the flooring down and the rest of the painting done. I'm begining to get tired of painting, but still have alot to do. Slowly but surely it is coming together.

Well I need to run......Boy Meets World is on........

Talk to you soon.

This house is soooooooooo quiet!!! It's downright eerie.

The kids have gone on vacation with their Dad. There is no music playing, no sports on the t.v.,
no video games making those repetitive noises, no one in the computer chair, no one to chauffeur here and there, no one saying can I have______ or can ______ come over, no one saying "I'm bored" or "I'm hungry (ten minutes after eating)".

I have none of this......Instead I have TOTAL SILENCE.
I could hear a pin drop SILENCE.
I can hear my own thoughts SILENCE.

A whole week of this? I don't know if I can handle it.
A week of actually being able to watch an entire show on t.v. with out someone saying, but I've been waiting all week for this show, or but the big game is on. (of course with Adam every game of every sport is THE BIG GAME)

I actually know what the remote looks like now. It actually can change the t.v. to a channel that is NOT sports related.
Am I it the drugs........No I think it is real.
Gee so many channels, so many shows and silence. How will I ever make it through the next week. :) :) :) :)

I do miss my kids, really I do. But I think I will enjoy this coming week.
I will have some major ME time :)

And just so everyone knows, the surgery went well. I am supposed to call on Monday for the pathology report. So keep your fingers crossed for me.

Love to all and have a good week end. I'll be relaxing on my sofa recliner watching some t.v.

I really hate hospitals..... I had to go for some pre-op tests on Monday. I had to have some blood drawn and an ekg, etc....etc..... I hate it anyway, but the Dr. had not sent the orders over and I had to sit there until they faxed them over. I sat there waiting and watching the t.v. and the people going by the office I was I was in. Across the hall was a conference room, where I saw a family being escorted in. Then a few minutes later I saw the Dr. go in. The look on their faces brought back some memories. I started thinking about how many times I myself have been in that position. It was down right depressing.
Finally, my orders were there and I was called back. Didn't take very long at all.

I have to be back on Wed. at 6a.m. I am having some laser surgery done. Kind of like a D&C, but with a laser. At least I don't have to stay in the hospital.
I am really dreading it and just want it to be over with.
Maybe I'll actually post a little more since I'll be home for about a week.
