Yes! It is that time again! Boy! No dust gathering here. Time is rushing by so quickly, I barely can catch my breath. Next week is Thanksgiving!!!!!!! Wow!! What happened to summer??? I'm just sayin'!!!
Well, the Doll Show came and went! Wasn't as successful as I hoped. But I did sell one doll and had tons of visitors. Lots of "oooing" and "awwing". So it's all good. I so enjoyed my granddaughters and grandson helping me out. We had a blast! And my son and Dr. John were tons of help. Without them, set up would have been a real drudgery!!
When it came time for lunch, my son stepped in and donned his salesman hat and went to work for me. When I left to go eat, he was telling some ladies to pick up the babies!!! He was even holding on and patting it's little bottom. Now how cool is that?? Great lunch by the way...Subway...yum!!!
Enjoy the show....

Had a girls day out yesterday and it was sooooo needed!!! Manicure and Pedicure and relaxing in the massaging chair...oh my!! Bliss!!! Not to mention that Jessica did a great job with the new design on my nails. I'm all festive now...ready for Thanksgiving!!
Had a minor relapse with the asthma and ended up with another round of steroids. Bleh!! But I think I have finally turned the corner here. At least, I hope so!! See my Asthma Doc today and see what he has to say. He is really ornery but good!
Hope you all have exciting plans for Thanksgiving!?! We do! We are going to Gallup, New Mexico and spending a couple of days with the kids and grand kids! Woot!! Dr. John and I are purchasing the turkey and all the trimmings and Ginger and Lee ( DIL and son) are doing the preparations. I love it!!! No cooking for me. Well, not much that is. I do the sweet potato casserole. Sweet potatoes, walnuts, brown sugar and pineapple! Yummy!!
This is also usually the time of year when I start getting the Christmas wish lists too!! I have already received three...four more to go!! And they better hurry! I don't want to be shopping Christmas week, that is for sure. I am still in shock...Christmas??? How the heck did that happen???
So, I have lost 170 pounds now...35 more to go!!! WooT!!! I visited the plastic surgeon and got the low done on what to expect. Yes! I will be having surgery to get rid of all this excess skin. First surgery will be the breast and the stomach. I am really excited. Dr. Morehouse went through the entire procedure and told me what to expect.
I have a big scar on my abdomen from several previous surgeries...so he said that my belly button is probably compromised already so I might lose it. Lose it??? Now that will be weird!! No belly button! I am trying to wrap my head around that one. Tattoo parlor, here I come! Great place for a colorful tattoo, don't you think??
Anyway, he said surgery will take 5 to 6 hours and then I would be taken by ambulance to Lovelace Women's Hospital where I will spend a couple of days. Recovery will take about three weeks! I know pain is involved here. I am just hoping for really good drugs!! Copious amounts of them! I am definitely not into pain.
I am shooting for May, 2011 for this surgery. I will do my arms and face the following year. And no, my insurance will not pay for this. Damnit!!! I will try but it doesn't look promising!!
My porch light went bad and I ordered new ones. I needed two! One for next to the studio door and one for the front door. So we had these when the kids got here and I smiled and winked at my son! Ha! And bless his heart; he installed them for me. They are gorgeous!!!! I have such good taste...Ha!!
Now my home is filled with baby dolls!! Yikes! I will be listing them on my ETSY store this week...so you know what is just around the corner. Now is the time to get a loved one a one of a kind baby doll! (GRIN)!!! Shameless promotion here! You will find a link to my ETSY store on my side bar. Visit when you have a moment to browse. I will start listing them today and tomorrow!!
Since I have lost all my insulation (170 lbs,) so I am freezing all the time. I used to overheat!! HA! So now I walk around the house with a sweater and a flannel jacket to keep warm. This is a good problem to have!! Yes?!!!
I haven't walked for ten days due to my asthma!! I miss it terribly and will be walking today!! Just not as far. It will take awhile to build up my stamina again. So two miles today! And boy will I bundle up!!!!! Ear muffs, two jackets and gloves!! Today will be cold...possible snow...but sunny! I can handle that! All except the snow! No likey snow!!!!!!!
Oh! At the doll show, I found more Kewpie dolls and added some new ones to my collection. They are so cute. I will post some pics of my collection next time. I have several...Ha!!!
Enough random from me...don't forget to check out Keely at The UnMom for more randomness!! You never know what may be happening over there. Zombie attack?? Could be!!
Have a magical and blessed day!!
