2. I got a shower. Easier said than done!!!
3. The lortab is working and so my foot isn't hurting as much... but I live in a fog.
4. Jaron is making dinner
5. Nathan is doing some laundry
6. I got some Ben&Jerry's chocolate ice cream from Michelle (RS Pres.) Thank you so much!!!
Now that I'm feeling a little better I want to go and do stuff. But when I do someone is yelling, "Mom (or Lori) sit down!"
I can tell the next 4 days are going to be rough for my family.

I was off of pain meds for several hours during all of this and omg........my foot was throbbing. So glad to be back on them. Steve was (still is) a trooper putting up with all of this. I know one day we'll look back at this and laugh......maybe. No pictures today :)

The surgery was only two hours. I had a bone shortened, a joint fixed and some bone spurs removed.
For the next six weeks I will be wearing a lovely black boot but for one week I'm suppose to stay off of it. I think I did pretty good today not driving anybody nuts but this is day one. I like to move around and keep busy and I believe my family will suffer with me being stuck to the couch for the next 6 days.

There was lots of heavy lifting of the snowballs and some of them fell apart.

First Making a Snowman is hard work:
And it takes getting down into the snow.
Sometimes you are just not sure which direction your creative energies should take.
So you pray for guidance
And things go better and move forward.
And when it's done it is often surprising how well it turns out (and how realistic!).
And if you readers don't like it?

I have awesome friends and don't know what I would do without them. Thanks guys!!!
It's made me think a lot about Nathan leaving and what he will be going through. What kind of mission president will he have. I'm not too worried cuz a friend of mine, daughter, knows him personally and says he's great......so I feel a little better.
Every day I see Jaron getting more and more use to life at home. I think it has taken him the longest to adjust but he is getting there......and he's happy. I have been doing a lot thinking about what goes on out there in the field and what they are told. I don't mean to sound negative but as a "mom" I can't help but worry about some of the things I hear. I guess with Nathan leaving that I will just have to have faith that he will be fine and do lots of praying :)

As you can tell by this picture that she is nervous as heck about this decision. She was scared that it would hurt really bad.
She wanted both ears done at the same time. She was squeezing my hands really hard!!!! But she did it and she said that it really didn't hurt that bad.

At 9 months he was up and running so it didn't last long.

Steve's like......Lester? There's no Lester in the scriptures.
Emily said that it says........and the heavens opened and there was Lester.
Steve laughed and said.....no, that's luster.
All of us got a huge laugh out of that one!!!!
I don't think I will be able to ever read that scripture the same way :)

Then she went upstairs and painted her nails.
She slept with the curlers in. Her hair does not like to curl but it stayed curled most of the day.
She's all ready to hear Jaron!!
