Welcome to my little corner of blogland! This is the only sane spot I can come in my crazy life! :) Here I share my sometimes funny sometimes NOT-day to day insanity I call my life, along with my sweet wooly hubby & all our boys :)

If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; there is where they should be.
Now put foundations under them.

Silver linings...

Well went to J's eye appt. yesterday, the news was *good* :) There is no actual damage to his vision or optic nerves, its just the 'wandering' eye issue. They will schedule a surgery to correct it, but not for a couple mos. down the road to give it time to hopefully finish healing on its own. Then jaunted over to the neurosurgeon to turn the shunt back up to 2. Hoping and praying this will work now, trying VERY VERY HARD not to be negative and paranoid. Trying not to hound him every 30 min. with "how you feeling now?" sigh. Failing.

Then, of course this week with single digit temps and wicked north winds our water froze, got up this a.m. to main water line busted/leaking all over hot water heater closet/floor/wall. Trying not to get discouraged over this, or wonder how we are going to fix/replace our whole bathroom utility room this spring/summer with NO FUNDS. Failing.

SO then I get online, and GUESS WHAT? I WON A WHIRL INTO WINTER GIVEAWAY! You can click to see what I won. One of my favorite ones I entered, a brown corderouy purse! I am so happy :) That makes me feel better. Still struggling not to sink into the deep pit of depression, still treading water right now but lots of little blessings keep me afloat, and this is a huge one! Thank you to Rebecca for hosting a great giveaway :) Thanks to you all for your prayers. xoxo melzie
