I intend to resolve that tonight though. I have the edges painted and will try tonight to paint the walls. They are definitely going to need two coats of paint. The blue is beautiful! My dh and dd's are loving it. Can't wait to get it finished. I have to send the pictures that I've taken so far to my email and then I can upload them here. I will try to do that today or this evening.
Dh is having good and bad days. He's had more bad lately. He felt good for a while because they gave him a blood transfusion and that gave him more energy but it's wearing off... I am busier than a cat on a hot tin roof most days. I'm working full time and then going home and cooking and working in the bathroom. I've had tons of stuff to do because dd #1 graduates next week and we're having her a party on the following day. I think I have everything for the party except food. I have to get a tent from mil and tables from brother and drink dispensers from sil and a friend and then I'm done. When I took dh to his dr appt last week, I went by party city and picked up what I needed there. Oh! I have to pick up some napkins!!!
DD#2 is feeling left out right now because everything is revolving around dd#1. I hate that but I've told her once we get past next week it won't be that way.
Well, I've gotta run. I hope everyone is doing ok and I will get back to checking everyone's blogs once I have stuff wrapped up here. Thank you for your continued prayers!

I know I have been neglecting my blog of late and I really am sorry. I know I promised pictures and they are forthcoming, just haven't had the time to post them. I am taping off the wood work currently and preparing to get the walls painted. I finished the ceiling on Sunday. Talk about pain, my shoulder that I had surgery on did not like painting the ceiling. I have to finish up the taping and hopefully start the painting some evening this week. After the walls are done the door and the wood work get another coat of gloss. We are into week three with this. Normally I would have it done fairly quickly but because I am working full time and having to take care of more things at home, that dh cannot, I haven't had the time or the energy for painting. I have managed to accumulate just about everything I need for my dd's party. I just have to get the lights and get them strung in the trees. A friend is bringing them to me from Knoxville tomorrow. As far as my dh goes, it's not good. Part of the reason I haven't been posting too. His kidney function is down to 11 percent. If it gets to 9 they will make him go back on dialysis. He's very resistant to it. We have been through a lot in the last month or so. Basically, he has to have a new kidney. I happen to be a universal donor so I can give him one of mine, and we have decided to do just that. His doc is supposed to be sending us to the transplant surgeon soon and we hope to move things along and try to get him a kidney by the end of June. I'm not sure it will go that fast but we are trying. My boss will be on vacation for two weeks and we'll only have the hygenists in the office so, it will be light. Pray that everything goes well with both our health evals and the psych evals as well. Those are critical to me being able to give him my kidney. I promise I will get some pictures up soon. I've bought so many lovely things to go in my bathroom I want to share!!!!
Thank you for your continued prayers, we covet those very much.

I an just giving you a teasing from what I've been doing....Starting at the top you will see two pictures of canning jars---yes I am going to start canning-I purchased 15 doz in various sizes. next to that you will find food save storage buckets that are air and water tight. The economy being what it is, when things are inexpensive, we will be filling the buckets with food stuff that will last the long haul. Next you see a metal grating, some paint cans, pictures of my bathroom as it currently is. It was nice for a while, now I'm ready for something else. Below that you will see a picture of the shower caddy I bought for the bathroom-we really needed a new one and next to that you will see the inspiration for the new bathroom! The background is charcoal grey with white, blue and black queen ann's lace on it. The walls will be blue and the towels with be either black or grey (so they don't show much dirt). I will be starting tomorrow by taking everything out that I can to prep and begin to sand the base boards and trim as well as the door. It's in desperate need of a new painting. Be low all the household stuff you will see glassware. I've been scouring the second hand shops looking for items to use for my daughter's graduation party. The desserts are going to be served in the dessert cups, the platters of course for holding things and the bowl-I don't know yet. The vases we will be putting ice or water into and dropping glow sticks into them to help light the party. I've been making some progress on the knitting part but I am in a bit of a funk and have to have some help to figure it out. Will be going to my lys to get some advice on Saturday. Wish me luck with this.______________________________________________________________________________
On a heavier note, we did not receive a favorable response from the doctor today. Mitch has to lower his salt and may in the very near future have to start diyalasis again. And she talked about putting him on the transplant list here or in Nashville. Seems that my dear husband has gone into chronic rejection and they are unsure how long he can last before the more drastic measures have to be taken. Pray please, like you have never prayed before. My God can heal anyone, I've seen it in my own family with my brother, He can heal Mitchie too. Thanks for your prayers, they are appreciated and coveted.

I do have good news, I am on the mend and am feeling much better! I was going to have to go pick dd up at a friends house 6 hours away but her mom said no they would bring her back. So, I think I'll be going to knitting group or more likely will be going shopping for the shower curtain, towels, paint and storage things that we need for the bath room. I ended up with colors different than what I first thought to do but I think I am going to like it. I can get almost everything I need from Wally world. I normally don't shop there but I have to be a bargin shopper so I will find what I need even if it is at wally world. I'll try to post pictures of what I get soon. I am making great strides on my wrap and a little progress on my sweater. I'll get picks of them soon. I hope you all have a blessed Easter and remember what we celebrate it for... Flo

I slept until 8 this morning and couldn't stay in bed any longer. After breakfast, my oldest and I headed out to the garden spot. We pulled weeds and then I started up the tiller and got it all tilled. Then we planted two rows of garlic and 2 rows of red onions and two rows of sweet onions. I haven't decided what else I'm going to plant yet but soon! My allergies and a coughing fit took over soon after we got things planted so I had to go back indoors. I've finished off two books and started another one. I will try to get back to knitting tomorrow evening. I have several things that I want to do but I need to do my wrap and work on my sweater. I hope everyone had a good weekend.
