Still not moving to well

Sorry to say that once again I missed another Fun Friday... I wasn't thinking when I left the message last week that I would post this week.  How could I forget that I was scheduled for surgery on Friday... Must have been a senior moment.... But I didn't have the surgery Friday, I had it on Tuesday.... Doctor was going to be out of town so it was moved to earlier in the week.  I really don't know what is wrong with my mind, but I thought I would have the surgery and be up and around like new... WRONG.... Surgery took longer then expected because there was more damage then thought, seems there was a lot of scar tissue that needed to be removed... Didn't get out of the hospital till after 9pm.  Came home and went to sleep, so Tuesday was one of those lost days.  Wednesday the block on the leg was starting to wear off, but I was still on crutches, just couldn't put any weight on the foot... Thursday the same thing, take pain pills and sleep, I did talk to the nurse about the pain in the foot and was told how to make it go away and it worked. Bandage was just to tight and foot had swollen.. so Friday it was feeling better and I only took two pain pills all day.. but still doing more resting then anything... Today the foot feels pretty good, and I am able to put some weight on it.  I am working on getting off the crutches... But today I will again, Ice the foot and keep it elevated so it doesn't swell.  At least DH is home this weekend and he can help me with things.
So since I didn't get Friday's Blast from the Past posted I will put in some blog videos of my home town.. First one is on Lancaster County in the snow  and the second is Lancaster in the spring... I pulled these from the Lancaster county Pa website.... Enjoy and I will be back real soon...

PS.. One World, One Heart is now over, I sent out my three door prizes, and I won a couple, Sean had set his blog up for Melanie and he and I both entered drawings in her name and she won a few.. Also there were quite a few who sent Melanie cards of encouragement.  Some even sent her supplies to get her started in her crafting again..

Something Special

My Friday Fun Blog has been set aside due to the One World, One Heart Event I was participating in. It will be back in place next Friday so make sure you stop by.

I didn't have time this week to prepare my posts for you,  so I thought I would share a email that I received from a friend this week.. I do follow some of these rules to live or should I say love by... my house used to be spotless, and now things are not alway in total order.. But I would rather spend time  working on my charity quilts or with the kids and grand kids  when they stop in for a visit.  I can live with a little dust now & then and if the dishes don't get done right away who is going to care, I have to many other important things to do. So many of my friends, my family and my blog friends are going through some terrible times and I hope they get a chance to read the words of Erma Bombeck

(written after she found out she was dying of cancer).

I would have gone to bed when I was sick instead of pretending the earth would go into a holding pattern if I weren't there for the day.

I would have burned the pink candle sculpted like a rose before it melted in storage.

I would have talked less and listened more.

I would have invited friends over to dinner even if the carpet was stained, or the sofa faded.

I would have eaten the popcorn in the 'good' living room and worried much less about the dirt when someone wanted to light a fire in the fireplace.

I would have taken the time to listen to my grandfather ramble about his youth.

I would never have insisted the car windows be rolled up on a summer day because my hair had just been done.

I would have sat on the lawn and not worried about grass stains.

I would have cried and laughed less while watching television and more while watching life.

I would never have bought anything just because it was practical, wouldn't show soil, or was guaranteed to last a lifetime.

Instead of wishing away nine months of pregnancy, I'd have cherished every moment and realized that the wonderment growing inside me was the only chance in life to assist God in a miracle.

When my kids kissed me impetuously, I would never have said, 'Later. Now go get washed up for dinner.' There would have been more 'I love you's' More 'I'm sorry's.'

But mostly, given another shot at life, I would seize every minute, look at it, and really see it . . live it and never give it back. STOP SWEATING THE SMALL STUFF!!!

Have a great weekend, congratulations to all my recent winners on both my blogs, and think of me next week as I will be having the surgery on my foot...

I almost forgot to update on Jen and her lap dog... We stopped by yesterday and OMG  her little puppy is huge, and she still has a lot of growing to do. I wish I would have had my camera handy to show you her progress... Jen said she was in denial when I told her that her little puppy was going to be a BIG dog, guess she will believe me the next time....
