Happy February!

Goollyyy!! What happened to January?? lol
I've been pretty sick for eons it seems. I'm on about the 25th day of antiobiotics for 2008. I think that explains why I haven't been online much lately.
Let's see...what's new...
1) my FIL is doing pretty good with his chemo for prostate cancer. He lost all of his hair after the second treatment. He has a wig made of human hair and he's wearing that sometimes when he goes out. Bless his heart.
2) We've worked hard at our church for the past 15 years. We've finally gotten to the place that we are beyond exhausted. On January 23, Fred resigned as Church Treasurer and Board Member. We've taken a 30 day leave to go to church in Indianapolis, to be with Fred's dad and his wife. Fred wants this time to grow closer to his dad-they really need the time together. Fred's dad cried when he heard we were coming to church with him! =)
3) I started my allergy shots. I get 3 shots every Thursday and will for 5 years. Ugh.
4) Still having chronic sinus infections. I went to the ENT in January and he said he is recommending sinus surgery. I'm to call him when I am ready. (Never?!) lol
5) I have some HUGE news but I've sent notes to every via snail mail, so I'll wait before I add any info here about the news...
6) Fred gets through about one book a year. That boy is the slowest reader I've ever seen! lol He's so detail oriented though (comes with his job) and he reads every single word and looks at every single punctuation mark, etc. ha! Anyway, he's reading Tony Dungy's book right now. In case you don't know who Tony is, he's the Colts coach. =) He's a very inspiring Christian man.
Well, I think that about does it! I can't wait for everyone to get the notes I mailed out so that I can share the good news here! lol
Oh NO! I have some more good news!!!! Fred got his braces off!!!!!!! After 3 years of torture (not really!) he's got beautiful, straight teeth!! I'm so proud of him! He has some implants to get then will whiten his teeth. He looks like a new man! LOL
