Relay for Life

Posted by mycrazylittlelife on 03/29/2008

My Reason to Relay is to join people around the world in celebrating those who have survived cancer, remembering the people we’ve lost, and supporting the lifesaving mission of the American Cancer Society.

Many of you are aware that I lost my mom, Doretta W., last April. I am relaying in memory of her. She was a long-time cancer survivor. At 15 years of age, and then again at 20, she endured radiation treatments for Hodgkins disease. This radiation killed the cancer, but it also caused irreversable damage to her other organs. Ultimately, cancer took my mom at 53 years of age.

 Thankfully, treatment today has ‘come a long way, Baby’! Please consider making a donation to continue research so that future generations will not have to endure cancer threatening the lives of their friends and family. You have the power to fight back against a disease that affects millions.

Please be sure to notify the Relay For Life participant that you are making a contribution on their behalf. Please send the complete form with contribution to the local American Cancer Society office at:
American Cancer Society
ACS of Fort Worth
Attention: RFL of Weatherford

My family thanks you!

Puppy Love

Posted by mycrazylittlelife on 03/26/2008

My husband pronounced our son old enough to have his own dog.

Meet ‘Buddy’. He’s a mutt. A precious, precious mutt.

Subsequently, I’ve declared same son old enough to use household cleaners. I’m nice like that.

CVS

If you are not shopping & saving at CVS…you are totally missing out!!!

Since there are so many sites already listing great deals, I’m not going to. Besides, I don’t search out the deals….I steal borrow them from other sources anyway. Here is just a sampling of the sites/blogs for your deal browsing pleasure:

Snow in March

Posted by mycrazylittlelife on 03/06/2008

This is what it looks like outside my home. Actually, it’s probably worse because these were taken 10 minutes or so ago.

 

Poor babies.

I absolutely abhor cold weather. Snow…it’s totally off my hatred radar.

Just a little taste of the crazy

Posted by mycrazylittlelife on 03/04/2008

I’m feeling rather anxious today. It’s probably a combination of things floating around in my head, making me feel like I’m going to crawl out of my skin. The Bible tells us not to be anxious, but to present our concerns to the Lord. I’m so glad He listens. I’m so thankful that He cares. Even about the small stuff. Even the crazy stuff!

My fil is still in the hospital. This weighs on my heart for the obvious reasons, but also because I know he is miserable. He’s a ‘doer’, not a sitter. The thought of him being bed-bound just makes me ache for him.  Lord, I ask for complete healing. I ask that you give him peace of mind and rest.

The primary election. Did you vote? It really makes me crazy when people don’t vote. If you didn’t, do.not.tell.me. The crazy will only get worse.  Heavenly Father, You are in control. Help me to remember that. Regardless of our votes, the outcome is in Your almighty hands.

My house is still under construction. Actually, it’s been ‘under construction’ in some form or fashion since we moved in. Lord, thank you for my husband. Thank you for his abilities and willingness to improve our home. I ask that you move him to speed it up 🙂 and enable me to be at peace with the state it is in.  

Our cat killed a rabbit the other day. I’ve not been out to see it, but I know it’s there. Thankfully she didn’t ‘gift’ us with her catch. Still, it bugs me. Why does this bug me so? It’s not all that unusual for feral cats to hunt and kill. The fact that it bugs me, well, just bugs me even more. I even had a dream about it last night. Lord God, would you please just erase this thought entirely?

Philippians 4:6 ‘Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.’

Craftiness

Posted by mycrazylittlelife on 03/03/2008

Lately, the crafty girl inside has been on vacation. However, she did manage to stitch together a spa wrap. I followed absolutely no instructions. I just made it up as I went along. Go me. However, here are a few links for you, if you’re interested. 

Basic Towel Wrap (Obviously, embroidery is optional.)

After Bath Towel Wrap with Straps
