Wow! So much going on!
Oh no! A speeding ticket! I got one of those one time. Uuugh! We were coming home from like a weeklong camping trip , i was driving and i think i was just so ready to be home! So i got a little lead footed. But i still think the cops radar was off. LOL!
All that flooding! Sure wish we had some of that rain here in west central TX. We had two inches a couple weeks ago but its time for more.
How great you got to help your sis pick out her wedding dress. Did she find one she gave a thumbs up to?
What a grocery haul. We eat those sugarfree jello pudding cups all the time.What a treat! We usually get just the vanilla and chocolate.And sometimes i'll put a dollup of lite whip cream on top. Yum.
To have lived all these years with a hole in your heart! Amazing. Glad its not life threatening or doesn't seem to be.Will keep you in my thoughts.
Gosh i better go to work. Thanks for the great post. Just keep moving, even if you can't run. That walking hill programs sounds good for you! Have a great week girl! Jinx!

I know! Crazy!

Yeah, totally my fault even though it was a bit of a speed trap. What is hilarious is that there is a family joke about how I never drive over the speed limit. None of them can believe I got it. My mom was even with me & kept saying how she couldn't believe it. Good thing was the cop was pretty hot. One of my friends suggested I go to court just to see if he showed up. Hehe. I thought about giving the lady I talked to at the municiple court (a town of about 600) to my number to give to him. LOL But that might be considered bribing. :)

Oh, she still hasn't found a dress. We were just trying them on for kicks. A lady who goes to my parents church offered to make her a dress for the price of the fabric alone so that may be what she does.

Yeah, they found the hole when my parents took me for my 2 week check up. They told them they had an appointment with a cardiologist in Dallas the following week & to just watch & make sure I didn't turn blue. Holy crap, I can't imagine the stress they felt for that week.

Thanks. I'll get back on the running soon but I think I'll take it slow for a while. This is a lifetime thing, no need to rush it, right? :)

Rachel, I was very excited about the Jelly Bean yogurt but it was nasty. :P
