Well it's been awhile................AGAIN! But that's okay. I have a busy life.
I have just gotten engaged to the most wonderful man! He treats me so good!! I love him so much. He took me to my mom's and then made me leave the room so he could ask her permission to marry me. Then when I came back into the room I sat down on the couch and he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him!!! Of course I said "YES"!! My mom just loves him!! She was so excited, we both bawled!!! I am so in love!!!!!!!! It's great!!!

Well, the pressure has gotten to me, it's time I posted a new blog. I mean it's only been what, about a year or so??? Alot has happened in a year, but I won't talk about everything that has happened!!
I've been off work since May 1st, I had carpal tunnel surgery on my left hand. I had so much in my mind I wanted to do while I was off. Clean out the spare bedrooms, closets, junk drawers, stuff like that. Well it's been over a month and I haven't done any of that! I have been doing alot of running around instead. We went to Seattle to watch the Mariners. What a great game!! Randy Johnson, (my hero pitcher) was back in Seattle for the first time since he was traded. He now pitches for the Giants. When he walked onto the field he got a standing ovation, the crowd went wild!! Then he pitched for about 6 or 7 innings and when they pulled him, the crowd went even wilder!! They, including me, stood up and yelled and screamed. He tipped his hat to the crowd and we got even louder!! It was so much fun!! We also went to the waterfront to "Pike's Market". We did so much walking. We ate at the famous Crab Pot, it was on the travel channel on "Man vs Food". I ate so much crab and shrimp. I love sea food. We also went to the aquarium, it was nice but not even close to the one in Newport. That one is the best one I have seen by far.
I also went to Utah to see my kids, it was a blast!! We went to Vegas over the weekend. That trip will be another day to write about...................Thursday I'm going to Lincoln City to see my other kids and bring Nicholas home with me for a couple weeks.
Last night I was up the entire night!! I finally fell asleep around 6am. MY brain is just a little gooshy right now!! So I will write about my Utah trip maybe tomorrow.........

Well we had a great time in Lincoln City. We left here the 18th and went to Junction City to see Don's sister. We had a good time with her. Then we were off to Lincoln City. Nicholas called several times asking where we were and when we were going to be there. We got there the same time he got out of school. We spent time visiting then Chris had to go to work, so we took Angela and Nicholas to dinner to a 60's cafe. Tuesday we went deep sea fishing. It was so cold, and the waves were so big and choppy. Don chummed the whole time. He fed the fish while I caught them. We limited out. Well I think I caught my limit and half of his. He did catch some between barfing over the rail of the boat!! The waves were getting so big and strong you couldn't stand without being thrown across the boat or overboard!! So they had to take the boat back, then cancelled all the other boat trips for the day. So we were pretty lucky. Then that night we spent time with the kids. Nicholas came to the motel with us and I gave Chris and Angela money for a date. We swam at the Motel until I was so exausted!! Nicholas stayed there with us and slept on a cot. Wednesday we spent the whole day with the kids. Chris and Angela both had the day off, and Nicholas had no school. We went to the "Oregon Coast Aquarium". That was alot of fun. We were going to go to the Science Center but they were closed of course!! Then we had dinner at Izzy's. Since we were leaving the next morning we said our good byes. Of course I bawled and bawled and bawled.............I just hate leaving them. We got home Thursday evening. It's nice to be away yet nice to get back home. It would have been better if I could have bring my kids with me. Well Nicholas wants to live with me "forever", so he is coming the day after school. We'll see how long it lasts. He is so damn cute!!

Those Mariners are really making me MAD!!! They have lost to the Yankees...........I hate those damn Yankees!!!! I thought about breaking up with the Mariners, but just can't do it. I have been so faithful to them for over 15 years, when they weren't anything. So I have been with them through thick and thin and everything. I guess I will stay with them. I really do love those guys!!!

Well I am barely surviving this whole ordeal. I just hate not being able to do anything. I have been working out at the gym an hour before work and now I can't do that. I love working out, I have been doing it now for 3 weeks. It gives me so much more energy and makes me in a much better mood. Not that I was in a horrible mood, maybe just a little bit at times. Well I have all kinds of pretty colors on my knee and elbows now. Different colors of blues, purples, yellows and oranges. The swelling on my knee has gone down, but still some there. I can't wait to get this over with and go back to being normal, okay normal for me. I thought maybe I needed to walk it out, well that wasn't such a good idea. You know what they say, nurses make the worse patients. Oh well!!

Well today while walking into work, I did a nose dive on the pavement. My arms were so full I couldn't catch myself. Therefore my full weight went down on my knee, then I slid on my elbows. Did I feel stupid or what especally since there were about 15 officers there that saw the whole thing not to mention we have camera's every where that are constantly rolling. I'm sure it will show up on You Tube any time. Every one was concerned and helped me up, but my pride was already shot. They kept asking me if I were okay and I told them "I'm fine". Well as I was walking into the instituation, my left knee was hurting so bad not to mention my elbows that looked like hamburger and bleeding. By the time I got into the medical department my knee looked like a purple baseball and I could hardly walk. So I had to fill out an entire tree's worth of paper work, then I went to urgent care. They did an x-ray and she, the nurse paractioner, said she thinks there is a crack in my knee cap and a torn Tendon but there was so much swelling and blood in the knee she couldn't say for sure. So we are treating it as though it is. I'm going to my Orthopedic Surgeon that has repaired my shoulders 4 times and my other knee just two months ago. He is going to die when he see's me coming, or pee his pants!! I am about bionic by now. Well now my nickname at work is "Tumbleina"
