Stupid computers

have kept me from you sweet, sweet people. For those of you that read my blog, but not my mom's you can visit her (click on the link on my sidebar) and find out what's going on. She's a diabetic and for a few years when my dad left we had no insurance, so she went without medicine to pay the bills and buy food for my 2 brother's and me. That took an awful toll on her eyes. She had laser surgery last week which she said was NOT fun and hurt like a MoFo, and she has to go through that atleast 2 more times, maybe 3. She may or may not lose her peripheral vision, but we are feeling hopeful as her right eye (the one she had done last Friday) is doing fine, if not better than before the procedure. Her next appointment is tomorrow, and then my whole fam is coming over on Saturday for a bbq so she doesn't have to worry about feeding her possee (or however you spell that) that includes my step-daddy, granny and two bros. I'll update my blog that night (even if I have to use hubby's comp) to let you all know how she's doing.
Thank you, thank you, thank you for all the kind words, thoughts and prayers you've sent my family's way. It means the world to us.
Miss Paula at Cathering of Friends~Miss Paula in Stitches made a tag for my mom to put up on our blogs. Isn't it pretty? I still can't get over the love sent our way by strangers. Thank you again!

I've been reading your mom's blog for a month or two now. She is so sweet! I love the granny square afghan you guys made. The colors are so fun! The fish taco's look good but I have a problem with fish on taco's. I'm from Kansas and maybe other people ate them their, but I never heard of them till I moved East. I prefer chicken. I may have to try the fish stick recipe though.

Have a wonderful day!!
