The Long Awaited Photos

Alright I was ready to put my pictures on here when I went back and looked they were really outdated so I will have to retake them and get them on here. But hey for your viewing pleasure this is me on Valentine's Day. My friend took me and my daughter out to dinner and he brought me some yummy chocolate too. I had other plans to take my kids out, but my son's Dad had other plans and mine had to be cancelled. So my friend said I'll be there to pick you both up in a couple hours. We had a great time, but I really wanted to spend it with both my kids. I had been planning it for a week and told my son and everything and he seemed so excited, but again my plans got changed.

Since no pictures I will tell you a bit more about my friend. He has never raised his voice to me or my kids. He is very laid back (unlike me) LOL. He is well aware of my situation and mistakes I made in the past. He would rather talk to me than watch television. Weird I know. LOL. He was doing work for my parents at their house and before he left he went and sat down with my Dad and talked with him for awhile. My Dad had just had foot surgery and had been cooped up in the house, he said he felt bad for my Dad. My Mom has invited him to meet them for dinner with me. Friday night he went with to get groceries and never complained or yelled at me for the way I loaded the cart or unloaded the cart like I was before. He even took me to Coldstone Creamery and shared a huge ice cream waffle cup with me and let me choose the flavor. By the way if you have one around you it is awesome ice cream this was the first time I ever went. I made him pecan pie and Rice Krispie treats yesterday and he told me it was better than his Mom's. True or not I'm not sure. LOL. He gave me two pieces out of the entire pie to bring home and he kept the rest. Did I fail to mention he loves his sweets and his Dad used to own a bakery. LOL. He also made me steak and asparagus on the grill last night. The asparagus had olive oil and Serbian spices on it and it was delicious as I'd never had asparagus before because no one in my house would eat it. He said he's going to take me to a Serbian grocery store to educate me and buy stuff for me to try. I am so excited. Ok no more boring you with useless information.LOL

Oh and my health... well I am still dealing with the blood in my urine and have had many procedures (cystoscopies) and another CT scan on Saturday. Let's hope something is found. The good news is my deductible has been met. LOL. And I'm still on HIS insurance. haha

It's so nice to hear from you! I have been thinking about you :)

Sounds like things are going pretty well...besides your health issue, which I hope they find an answer to very very soon!

As I was reading your post about the new friend...I noticed something. Your husband was very controlling, wasn't he? Most of what you were saying was about how he lets you be yourself and doesn't yell at you. Yes, that's the way it SHOULD be. :) Wishing you the best of luck!~

Have a great day!

How good it is to see you blogging again! Your Man sounds yummy, and I am so sorry to hear that you are still having blood in your urine. My gosh, you would think that they could have found a reason by now.

Wooly hugs,
