Can you say hot? Daaannng, it is so hot out! I am so very thankful that I work in A/C all day and have it in the comfort of my home. I really feel for those who don't work in the A/C or their work won't crank it up to a tolerable temperature!

Not a whole lot going on here, about to end another work week. With the weekend brings Madisyn home again :-) Yeah....she doesn't start school until much later than EVSC, so we still have our longest portion of summer break ahead of us. Although the temps make it almost unbearable to do our usual camping...I am sure we will find something to keep us entertained. She is working a 5K in a few weeks that Chris is in and we have fair week to look forward to also! (you won't find me there!). Enjoy your weekend!

4th of July Photos

Friday, July 15, 2011


I bet one had might of thought I had sworn off blogging.... not so. With work and two kiddos...and trying to fit everything in I would like to do this summer, let's just say time has been sparse. Work is keeping me busy and I still love going in to my coworkers and little friends each day! Having adult (and little people) interaction has really helped me a lot. I am very thankful for the lives that have crossed my path the past several months. What a blessing!

4th of July we spent at home low key with the neighbors and playing putt putt golf at Walthers. We had a great family day doing that. Lyza got a little frustrated at times, but it was funny to watch! We had a great cookout with ribs (Madisyn's favorite) and then we set off a bunch of fireworks. They were pretty cool and Chris, Madisyn and Lyza did a great job picking them out this year! While I was in the hospital Chris and Madisyn also made it to the horse track to bet on a few horses (isn't that what all daughters and fathers do while their moms are laying in the hospital??? yeah, I didn't think so either!)...but Madisyn won on one of her horses, so she was happy.....and I got to take a 2.5 hr nap, which NEVER happens. So it all worked out. My mom came down and stayed with the girls for the two days I was in the hospital also.....THANKS mama!

I had a heart catherization done a few weeks ago. It was a 5 hr surgery that has actually seemed to help. I, of course, was skeptical and a bit nervous. I'm still bruised and banged up from it, but recovering each day. I am back to work, back to life as normal and back to the gym. We spent last week in Mitchell, IN at Spring Mill. It was super, super hot, but we stayed at the Inn and got to swim a lot and just hang out being silly. Madisyn took two friends (Allison and Lauren) and we had a great time. A few photos are below and many on facebook. We walked around the Pioneer Village and took some dressed up was way hot though and I think (I know I did) we spent more time in or near the creeks than out and about. We really did have a good time. I cashed in early with a very tired Lyza (she got to spend the day with Nonny, Paw, Brydon and LaRissa) while Chris and the girls played games downstairs into the wee hours of the morning. We had lunch at my mom and dads on our way through and my brother and crew were over as well. We had fun riding the four wheelers and spending time in the creeks of Grassy Creek!

Madisyn got to spend time with many of her friends on her first 1/2 of being home. They all went to Walthers one day, then I took them to the new Orange Leaf yogurt place. Madisyn and I ate out WAAAY to much. I was off work for my surgery and it was nice to spend the time with her. She did go to work one day with me also, which was a treat and the gals at work enjoyed getting to meet her.

Lyza had to get a tooth pulled yesterday. It was horrible. I will spare you the details. Broke Chris and I's hearts. She totally didn't understand the concept of the tooth fairy....and didn't want to look under her pillow. When she did she said " is two dollars, I'll put it in my piggy bank". Had it been Madisyn she would have said "What the heck...only two dollars? Ripoff"! LOL!

I hope everyone has been doing well and I apologize for not writing sooner and keeping in touch. I promise to make the effort to do that! It is just Facebook has seemed to take over and I get all my info from there, but I will try and keep both places up to date!!

Blessings ~ Misty

Crazy Busy- Fun Week!

We have had a crazy busy week at our house! My life is back to normal...and complete! Madisyn arrived home early Tuesday morning. We came home for a short spell, picked Lauren up and dropped Lyza off at PreSchool. From there we headed to get some movies, went and got mani/pedis, lunch at the Japanese Restaurant, to the mall shopping and then to PetSmart to purchase "Diablo"...the newest addition to our family! (A newborn Bearded Dragon). Wednesday Madisyn went to work with me. Thursday she stayed home with Chris and went to see Transformers. My mother arrived late afternoon and Chris fixed a steak dinner and all the fixins, followed by a homeade birthday cake (made by Maddy) for my mom. We ended the night on the 4 wheelers and GoKart and fireworks! Madisyn had some friends over (Allison and Sydney)...they drove Sydney's gokart down from her house. A good time was had by all.

4:30 am on Friday came a bit early.....I had to be at the hospital by 5:30 am for surgery prep. Not a lot of fun. I had a few complications before and during surgery, but I am doing very well now. They were trying to get my heart rhythm back in sync so I wouldn't have so many PVC/PVT's. The spots they had to burn off were in some very tough spots, so after a 5 hr surgery...they had to pull out. They recommended I go to Louisville, St. Louis or Vanderbilt to have a more invasive one done. However, I will wait it out and see if I become symptamatic before going further. I will be off work for the next few weeks but I am looking forward to relaxing at home with the girls. Thank you to everyone for all your prayers and concerns!
