I know I have not posted in a while, we went camping up to Paul Lake for 5 days. We got home on Monday afternoon and I was to beat to do much. Tuesday I unloaded the trailer and tried to catch up on laundry. The dryer had crapped out so I spent Wednesday washing laundry here and drying at the neighbours house. I worked today and then got the kids and myself packed up for another weekend away.

We are headed to the coast for Paul's grandfather's 80th birthday party. While we are at the coast I am going to have my big birthday present taken care of: I am having Lasix eye surgery tomorrow at 2:30. I can't wait!

We won't be back until Monday afternoon, so I am afraid I will have to save my camping posts until then. I will have lots to catch you up on.

Here are my birthday flowers that Judy sent: They are 8 days old and still look beautiful. They make me smile every time I see them. The orange rose smells wonderful.

Shannon taught my something for my birthday: Even happy feet,

can be made happier:

I have many socks that I have knit for myself and I love them all. It is strange to me that socks knit from someone's hand are so much sweeter than my own. I think I love them more because I know how long they took to knit and that every stitch was made by hand, for me. I feel spoiled when I wear them and I wear them all the time. Thank you Shannon.

The last photo shows the colour the best. They are so pretty. I was spoiled on my birthday, not just with wonderful over the top gifts but with phone calls from family and lots of well wishers. It was a good day. Thank you all for making it so.

I will be back on Monday to tell you all about my eyes and camping and a report on how to party when your 80. Whooot.

You are going to LOVE your LASIK! Take a Tylenol PM or something to make you sleepy right after, then when you wake up you'll be good as new.
And have fun sleeping with your Kareem Abdul Jabar goggles for the next two weeks. Paulie, you have fun too.

I'm glad that you like your socks. Thank you for posting a photo of them.

I can't wait to here how the surgery went. It was the best money I've ever spent. I hope you are as happy as I am.

I'm looking forward to hearing about the lasik and how it goes.

Great socks! I'm jealous!
