My Spring Break and Praises!

My Spring Break has officially not been any fun! The first weekend, I had tons of fun with the fam jam in Newnan at Preston's bike race. Monday when I got home I got a day before I had surgery and then Tuesday was the dreadful day. Tuesday and Wednesday after the surgery wasn't to bad. My throat was still numb from all the anesthesia and so it didn't start hurting really bad until Thursday. I was miserable yesterday. Preston and I woke up at the same time and I just looked at him and said "It freaking hurts!" So all day yesterday, I took the Ibuprofen and pain medicine as scheduled just so I wouldn't be in tears. I stayed on the couch and kept ice on my throat all day and really didnt' even talk. At dinner I had mashed potatoes while everybody else had this yummy shrimp pasta stuff, well I had some of the noodles. I just kind of sat in silence at dinner as well. Then we just all hung out as a fam last night because Preston is leaving today because he has to go to Athens, GA this weekend for another bike race. GO BAMA! I slept on the couch last night, well I was up half of the night and this morning while my mom was getting ready to go to work, I went and got in her bed and slept until 11. I think those 4 hours was the best sleep I have gotten since I have had surgery!! Today I feel somewhat better but not to much. Its so pretty outside that I would love to be at a pool laying out right now, but its kinda chilly! Anyways.....I'm recovering and thats part of having surgery is having to hurt for a while before you get completely better. I'm trying to be a big girl about it, but its hard. :)

So I have read a couple of blogs, well the first one was a blog that I have read since her baby was NICU and I have just kept reading it and then I read Ashley Waldrop's blog and it was all about Praises. Sometimes we do not Praise God enough, we just ask for things. We always need to PRAISE Him as well. SO here are some of my praises.

1. My family, they are amazing and I love each and every one of them so much.

2. My parents, they have been so supporitive of everything Preston and I have ever done. Especially when they take care of us when we are sick! This is my 3rd surgery and they have been amazing through everyone of them.

3. That I have a job that I absouletly love. These days that is hard to say sometimes.

4. I have a house and an apartment to live in and car to drive.

5. My college education and am still going to college to pursue something that I love. Helping People.

6. My friends that I have. Even though I don't see some of you all the time, I'm so glad I have met you and we keep in touch. I love you all!

7. Health insurance! I'm so thankful I have a job that provides this!

8. My dogs, Bailey and Chloe, this might sound silly, but they always bring a smile to my face, even when I'm hurting!

I could keep going, but I don't want to bore you! Well I'm going to get back on the couch and keep trying to get better. I really want to go to the mall, maybe Mom and I can go tomorrow for a little while. I do need a new watch, mine broke and I wear one all the time, so thats a good excuse to go, right?

Here is a picture of my family, its back when I had longer hair, but the only one I could find on a computer! I'll try to find a better one later on my dad's computer.

We went to the TN for fall break and it happened to be on my birthday! This was our last day and we were about to leave! The leaves were so pretty. Anyways, Bailey is scratching on my because the computer is in his way of sitting in my lap, so I'm going to go. Until next time. Love ya'll!!
