The Week that Was

It was the week without Kevin, which meant a somewhat easy routine with the girls. It was the week Bailey enjoyed some car rides….

It was also week I gave my blog a new look…. it’s a pre-done one but I thought it was so ME :-)…

It was also, unfortunately, the week my hands and feet started feeling swollen and sore again and my heal spur returned :-(. I’ve already made an appointment to see my Doc again next week. I need some answers and want to know what is going on, even if there is no cure or treatment.

    You’re saying hello to springtime, I’m saying goodbye to summer. Oh how I will miss barefoot days in the grass, endless sunshine and fresh veggies. I know you will supply all of that and more with your wonderful blog. And I love the new blog look, btw. Looks like Kevin had a great time in the sates. He brought you all the things we take for granted here. Okay, well I do appreciate those MIlanos tremendously! I can’t decorate as wildly for Halloween as I would like this year since our house is up for sale and that’s a real bummer for me. Looking forward to your pictures!

    Hi Libby,

    I like the theme of the new blog, looks great! And that photo of you in the sunshine looks beautiful! It’s SUCH a nice photo of you! The ornamental pear tree flower looks really pretty too! Sorry to hear everything has started playing up again. Hope the doc can help with some answers!

    Wow Libby, that is a wonderful pic of you. You look like you’ve lost lots of weight. How’s weight watchers going? Keep up the great work.
    Hope you feel better soon.
