Hello Again!

I just wanted to do a quick check in and say hello! We are still pickin' and a cannin' and a freezin' and a grinnin' (while we bare it). LOL! If we all could get well......namely me, it would not be so bad. We are so, so very blessed and God is good!

I still have this awful infection and was sent to a ENT by my family doctor. After 4 shots, 4 prescriptions (one of which is an antibiotic, for the full next THREE weeks), I should be better, if not, surgery is on the horizon. JOY! I am staying very, very tired and these new glasses are difficult to adjust to. Heather had asked about Zenni Optical (online vision source). I did NOT use them. They are very reputable, but my eye doctor's office will not touch a pair of glasses from an outside source due to lawsuits and such. I just saved the hassle and paid the BIG $$$$ and got them from my regular eye doctor.

The boys had their pictures made at school last week and they turned out well. I cannot wait to get some pictures of them and the fruit and markets and everything else on here, there is just not enough time, that and my internet chooses to work when it wants.

We are planning a fall vacation with our friends Jeremy and Julie and their 6 year old son, that the boys just adore. I cannot wait! We are heading to Orange Beach/Gulf Shores area.

As for John's job, they are still interviewing........can you say C.R.A.Z.Y!!!! WE have been finally told in no uncertain terms that he not a likely prospect. That hit us hard, but God has bigger and better things in store, in HIS on time. So, we will continue down the road of life with that attitude.

I hope you all are doing well and are thriving in the heat and your gardens and pregnancies and life in general! Many blessings and hugs!!! I'll be back around again, hopefully sooner than later! LOL!

Hi Marva,

Great to hear what you have been up to....and sorry to hear that you are still unwell, but other than that life seems very busy for you, and I am wishing you well.

I'm so sorry to hear about the job, but as you say, maybe there is another (better) one just around the corner just waiting for your lovely hubby....I do hope so.

All is going OK here, just very slow progress in the baby department, she just does NOT want to come out! :o) If nothing else happens, they will take me to hospital next Monday at the lastest and get her out one way r another, so QUITE the opposite from you and your boys!

I hope the boys are doing well.

Sending you, sweet friend, lots and LOTS of hugs from the UK! xx

It's good to "see" you again! I hope the prescriptions help so you can avoid surgery. I know that you are so busy you want to pull your hair out, and I have no idea how you do it. I guess that's why you're the farmer's wife, and I'm not. God knows what he's doing!

Good to hear how things are going for you, Marva! I'll be praying that this round of medicine works and you won't have to do the surgery. I'm sure ya'll can't wait for that vacation after all the hard work you've been doing! Love and prayers,

So glad to "hear" from you, I'm sure things are super crazy busy for you all...hope you're feeling better soon! I hope the fabulous vacation you have scheduled is just what you need to look forward to, helping you get through this last push of the busy season.

I am due in 3 weeks, so far everything is going well and I'm feeling great. Not much sleep, but that's to be expected (I need to get used to it, huh?!)

Great to hear from you Marva! Praying for you to feel well soon! Being sick is the pits! Thanks for the reference to the eye glasses- I am in need of new pair( but you know us moms, never buy anything for ourselves).. Stinks about hubby's job opportunity- I love your attitude. though it is hard to perserve. hugs and smiles!

It's good to see a new post here. I'm glad to hear the harvest is continuing to go well, but sorry to hear you're not doing better health-wise. I've been praying for you and will continue to do so. Looking forward to seeing your pics when you have more time, and are hopefully feeling much better. Take care~

Hi Marva:) I just wanted to stop by and say I was thinking about you today. I know you are so very busy right now, but I do miss your posts, and am looking forward to your "off" time of year. I hope you are feeling better, and I'm still praying that your body will completely heal from the health issues you've been struggling with. Take care friend.
