Kentucky and a Hysterectomy

What a title!  LOL

I attended a conference in Louisville Kentucky this month.  They had some good sessions for work, so it was worth my time, and of course I got to sight see.  Went to the Louisville Slugger Museum, if you ever have the chance it is a great tour.

Rode on the Belle of Louisville, what an awesome original steamship.  The oldest still working.   We went down to the steam engines and watched them work. 

Downtown Lousiville has a free trolley system, it was awesome to ride and see the city.  Louisville has Fourth Street Live.  It is like one great big party outdoors, concerts, etc.  Jason Jones/ and The Dirt Drifters were playing the night we were there, (new band).

Over all it was a great time.

And now after many issues I am recovering from a Hysterectomy.  It is not near as bad as I thought it would be.  The great thing is that they were able to do it as a Laparoscopic surgery.  He was able to leave one ovary so that is a good thing, but everything else is gone.  I had surgery Thursday morning, came home yesterday and this morning I feel pretty good.  Gonna be sore for a while, you know how it is when they cut on your tummy, and no lifting, mopping, vacumn, etc for 4 to 6 weeks, so not too bad.    I will be happy to "pay" this small price to no longer go through what I did every month. 

School is starting up, I have to be back this coming week.  Hope everyone had a great summer.

I Love you Girls.

beach photos

We had a great time at the beach in June.  The weather was perfect and we spent each day as beach bums.
Hunting crabs at dusk and building sand castles!  See the Thomas the Train castle!  Too cute huh?  You can see the townhouse we have stayed at for the last two years behind our awning. 

I miss you girls.

Some Favorite Photos

I have been sorting and cleaning the last few weeks.  As I do I come across things that make me smile or laugh or yes even cry.  I have found some photos recently that I love, quite a few actually, they are from before my digital camera so I think I will scan a few at a time and share. 

I am on the last room now, my office/scrapbook space--holy cow what a mess , but I will plow through, even though sometimes it just seems like I am moving stuff from one side of the room to the other.  LOL

Megan and Kendall's rooms are the exception, they are still the same.  Sometimes it makes us pause in the hallway and shed some tears, sometimes it brings peace to walk in and sit on Megan's bed for a bit, or rock in the nursery rocker.  Maybe one day......

Here are some fab photos!  I love them.  They are all from August and September of 2004.
I love you girls.
