Thankfully Thursday

Well this week has flown FAST! Seems the older we get the faster it goes! I remember mom always telling me that growing up, and as always as a kid, thinking yeah right! Yeah, Mom, you were right!

I posted this weeks CESE kit-
Lilac Spring by DeDe's an ADORABLE kit with lilacs, her tear bearz, gorgeous papers, elements...perfect for any photo! Check it out:

Had therapy yesterday again. We increased the exercises to 5 sets of 15...I thought 1 of them I was going to die! It burned SO bad by the 4th set...Cory said that was GOOD...arg! We're looking to get a 10's unit to help loosen things up, or thats the plan now anyways. He still thinks it might be something with the rotator cup and so do I...the ortho doc who looked at my xrays a few weeks ago said it wasn't but he had no clue what it was- mentioned maybe cortisone- NO! I dont want it masked, find out what the hell is causing it to lock up! Doesn't take a rocket scientist to do that, does it? Sometimes these doctors are a PITA! They want a quick fix or just mask it for now, to tie me over...I want the problem fixed but first find out exactly what IS the problem! I'm going to get a second opinion here in a cpl weeks when PT is over. I said I would give it the 6 weeks the ortho doc said sooooo.....Mon I'm going to call a different ortho doc! Will let ya all know...

We went camping over the 4th of July. Had a GREAT time, rain and all! Plus I forgot to pack my sling we use to get me in and out of the chair with! Poor Jon had to haul my fat ass in and out of the chair twice! I called my urology guy, Gary Hershey at PRN Medical , to see if he knew of a medical place up there in Prescott where we were camping, He said he did know of 1 place but wasnt sure if they were still there..asked why, what's up. I told him we're looking for a sling as I forgot mine...he says that he thought they had one there at the office and he and his wife were coming to Prescott that very afternoon! What are the odds! He checked and sure enough they had one!!!! YEAH!!!! So he and his wife met us in Prescott that afternoon and delivered the sling to us...they were coming up for Prescott Frontier days anyways and said even if they weren't they would have brought us one anyways...How COOL is THAT! Gary ALWAYS goes above and beyond the call of duty for us! Not every business has employees so helpful and kind either! He's a para also so totally understands out needs where others might not. KUDOS to you Gary!

Well our AZ Diamondbacks are sucking BIG time! We HAD like a 6 game lead in our division and now we're tied with the Dodgers for 1st place! They have had NO defense and now some of our star hitters and fielders are on the DL! Not a good thing! Now there is talk they might be looking to hire Barry Bonds- NO WAY! He's a TOTAL LOOSER! I soooooo HOPE and Pray they don't go that low! He's a has been, washed up, major ego toatin' ass! They will loose alot of fans I'm sure if they do. I would rather be in last place and keep a great team than be in 1st with a roidin' player on the team! Time will tell...

On that note-

Gooooood Morning!!!

Well did everyone have a nice July 4th weekend? 3 day weekends are SOOOOO nice to have aren't they? Jon had a 4 dayer so we headed north to COOOOOL weather! We camped at Lynz Lake in Prescott Valley for the weekend. Had a GREAT time just the 3 of us. Weather was PERFECT! Had some rain and HAIL, of all things! The boys rented a canoe and fished. I would have loved to go too but kind of hard to get my wheelchair in Reggie and I walked the path around the lake. Took some cool pics of hummingbirds, dragonflies, Osprey, a momma duck and her babies, cat tails, cactus flowers, the boys fishing and on the way back to van when the hail hit I managed to get 1 shot of the pea sized hail on the ground! Weirdest part was it about 50 degrees out so not sure where the hell the hail came from! LOL. We had rain off and on all day Fri, Fri night and then again Sat as we were packing BUT it did hold off until we got the tent down and packed up! PHEW! Only thing we needed to set back up to dry out was the canopy but thats no biggy. When we left it was 66 out, by the time we hit the valley 2 hrs later it was 112!!! HOT!
Jon just left for work, went to get in the van, came back in with this soda can with the lid peeled back like a can opener opened it- " See what happens when you leave a soda can in the car in phpenix in the summer!" OMG! It split that puppy wide open- guess where all the soda went? LOL...dash, seat, floor, mirror...guess who has a mess to clean when he gets home...snicker...darn good thing it wasn't in MY van! Do I feel sorry for him...NOPE! Ding dong...we live in Phoenix! 112 outside, imagine what the inside got to!'s funny but it's not...I know- I have a warped sense of humor...snicker...
