Mail Days May Need To Be Cut

WASHINGTON – Massive deficits could force the post office to cut out one day of mail delivery, the postmaster general told Congress on Wednesday, in asking lawmakers to lift the requirement that the agency deliver mail six days a week.

Please pray that this does not go through. If it does my husbands job will probably be cut. He is a sub for the United States Post Office, so if they go down to 5 days a week, they wouldn't need subs anymore. The reason they have subs is to give the regular mail carriers a day off, so my husband is only guaranteed 1 day a week. He usually gets more due to sickness and people just taking off.

Anyway, I just read this and I didn't like it too much:(

Calling ALL Opionions

I was recently introduced to a charter school called The Edge Academy. I am looking for any insight about the difference between a charter school verses a public school. Or if anyone has any info on this particular school would be great.


Is a great big discussion on Homeschooling verses Public Schooling verses Private schooling.

I really just want some insight on this charter school.

I have been soooo busy.............

.........................Doing NOTHING!!!! no i'm just kiddin, but I was just thinking how I haven't been posting that much.

I have been kinda busy with the kids. I started Rebekah in homeschooling again and it's not as hard as it was before. I am still greatly praying and considering putting her in "school" next year.

I have been busy with my diet and exercise

They say dieting is one of the biggest eating disorders there are and i believe it!!! When you are dieting" you obsess over it, at least I do. You count, measure, cut up, use smaller plates. I could on and on. Anyway feel free to check out my weight loss blog and see my ups and downs;)

I was pretty sick for about almost two weeks!! I was dealing with major migraine issues, that went through out my head neck and shoulders. I am finally feeling better.

Oh, an update on Jeff, He is at home now recovering. He still has a pretty hard time getting around. His incision is huge and long. It goes all the way down his stomach. And they did not use stiches or staples to hold it together. Actually I have no idea what is holding it together.

Well anyway, thanks for reading my blog!!!

Well they were able to take the tube out of Jeff yesterday and he is awake now. He was a lot disoriented and had no idea he had 2 major surgery's and was in the Icu. We had to keep explaining that to him.

They have to keep him in restraints because he wants to pull the tubes out and go home. He just doesn't understand. I am hoping he is having a better day today. My mom is going to see him at 11:30 so I am sure she will call with another update.

Once again, Thanks for all of your prayers!!

UpDate On Jeff

Well, there really isn't anything good to report. We were hoping that he would be off the ventilator by now but that's not happening.

They tried Sunday & Monday and he did not respond well to taking it out. Then he got pneumonia & fevers. Yesterday they were giving him blood and they said his respiration's were high.

They never really seem to be to concerned. The nurses are just like, 'This is expected when you are lying in a bed this long with tubes sticking out of you".

I know they can only keep a ventilator in for at the most 3weeks and at 2 weeks is when they start talking about doing something else.

Keep him in your prayers & thanks for your prayers!

Savannah Broke Her Finger

..................Well, really just the tip of it. We went to my sisters last night and all of the kids were playing great until I heard a scream. Savannah had gotten her finger slammed in a door. It did look kind bad but she could move it. I gave her Ib Profin and about 40 min later, she was still crying, so I figured she needed to be seen.

The doctor said it is a small fracture at the tip of her finger and to keep it in the splint for 5 days and have it re-checked. If it is not healing she will have to see a ortho pedic doctor.

So please pray that it just heals on it's own.

Funny HomeSchool Video

I got this off of a blog I read called DEAR ABBI. Even if you do not home school, this is soooo worth watching!!!

I needed a little comical break from al of the drama.

Quick Update

Yesterday they tried to wake up my step-dad but he didn't fully pass the test to breathe on his own. So they turned down is sedation medicine and they are trying to spread out his pain medicine so that his body can function.

They are oing to try to wake him up again today. Me and my mom are going down soon in hopes to actualy talk to the doctor.

I will write again later on. Thanks for all of your prayers!!

Well my step-dad came out of his surgery ok. The doctor said he is still very sick but on the road to recovery. There was no more infection or puss and the doctor was able to reconnect his intestines. He still has a long road to recovery but at least he is on his way.

I went to visit him tonight and they are keeping him highly sedated because he is still on the ventilator and stuff. But he is sometimes responsive and can answer yes and no questions.

They are going to start i.v nutrients and vitamins tomorrow and will probably try to wake him up on Monday.

Thanks for all your prayers and I will keep you updated on his condition.

Please Pray

For my Step-Dad. I will make a long story short. My mom called 911 Early new years morning for my step-dad. He was violently ill. They too him to the hospital and did emergency surgery on his stomach. They later told us that without this surgery he would have died. His abdomen was filled with puss and infection. His large and small intestines are now dis-connected.

He was then sent to ICU and is on every machine there is including a ventilator. He is having surgery again today around 11-12. The doctor will know more after today's surgery but if everything goes well, he will need to stay in the ICU for 10 days.

Please pray that the surgery goes well and fixes the problem. my mom asked the doctor if he was healthy enough for another surgery and he said, He is not healthy enough not to have the surgery. SO I will be there today.

I will update later on tonight about his condition.

Thanks for your prayers.
