Work day...

Work day...

This was actually taken yesterday... "Sue, Office Manager...." name tag.  I was told by my ENK that I am not legit Office Manager.  "Well, I said, too bad because I'm not going to order another name tag for myself!"   So I had an identity crisis... "what the heck am I then?"  I didn't care what my title was... just went to work every day.  But after more than a year at the office,  I think I AM who I am!  


Mall Shooting...

Yes, I was there with Randy at the exact time this shooting took place at our local mall!   I was not able to get Lindsey's birthday gift yesterday....We saw shoppers running out of Macy's visibly shaken, holding each other!  Randy and I witnessed real cops with guns drawn, yelling at us to move out of there!   We were shaken but thankful for the protection yesterday!

Uncertainty is a hard thing....

We have changes coming up in our household....We're moving! We sold our house! We were given a great offer on our house (without listing) so we know we are moving! But where will we go? We're not quite sure yet. We're working on it now... Searching, deciding, praying... trying to time it all right! There are other changes that are taking place which I'm not in liberty to state but things are moving along...

Speaking of uncertainty... Two weeks ago, I had scheduled for a complete physical. I haven't had a complete physical .... for a long time. My friend G said, "Sue, you're not child bearing anymore, why are you still going to a Ob/Gyn? Well, I found a nice Internist and got my check up. A week later, I was told that I had a sign of Endometriosis and wanted me to do a pelvic ultrasound.... okay, I was up for anything. I also went in for my annual mammogram as well. This was my third mammogram and they said that they saw a lump that was not there before! Going in for a mammo is routine... But when you are asked to come back in to get another look, as well as getting an ultrasound too.... I was getting nervous. Then they asked me to wait for the Radiologist to personally come in and talk to me! .. Hmmm...... you try to think positive but you say, "wait, what's going on?" They said that I needed to schedule a biopsy!

Uncertainty is a strange thing. It keeps you on your toes.... I got my biopsy last Thursday but the results were not ready until this afternoon! We spent the whole weekend, wondering... I called first thing this morning... called the Lab, called Pathology and a confirmation that they did sent it to my MD that morning...But I almost didn't get a call because my doc was not schedule to come in until the next day! I called my doctor's office and said, "I don't care which MD reads it, just give me the result today!!" I got a call 5 min. after! My biopsy result came in negative and I don't have endometriosis!! Praise the Lord! Whew! But strangely, my pounding headache started as soon as I heard the "negative, benign" result....

We drove around town, looking at homes and neighborhoods! Inventory is low and I'm now wondering if we need to find a rental house to go into for awhile.... certainly this uncertainty may continue?


Little bit of this and that today.....

It's got to be done.  I hate thinking about it.  We stuff it full...., forget about leftovers, things get crystallized, green and odorous...then it's time to clean the refrigerator.  October_2007_179

Why did I even think about cleaning?  My mom is coming to visit in couple of weeks...  Just the thought of my mom coming to visit made me get the sponge, take out the old "banchan" dishes, green cheese, and unidentifiable snacks into the sink and into the trash!  I hate cleaning the fridge!

In the afternoon, I took the kids to our local Tualatin Lee Farm's for some hay maze, fresh home made donuts and some fall crisp air.  We also picked some chestnuts for our last "pickin" of the season.  For ENK, he celebrated the Redskin's victory and did a little painting in our guest room...it's coming together!  It's taking us a long time.  A little bit of primer, a little bit of paint, a little bit of organizing... I can't wait to put the finishing touches in this room!October_2007_186 


"Mee Chin Nom..."

That's what I heard ENK say as he woke up in the morning.  His alarm radio went off and he heard that the shooter was a Korean man.  "Mee Chin Nom" is a slang for "crazy man".   How horrific is this news...I was deeply saddened and couldn't fall asleep last night...    Allison said, "he must have not been a Christian.  If he was, he should have known better..."
