Well it turns out I need to have surgery to fix two things. One is my cyst if it doesn't reduce or the pain doesn't stop then that will need to be operated on and I also discovered after talking to him that the main cause for my miscarriages is that they were most likely because they started out as ectopic pregnancies. Apparently when I had my tubal ligation it partly failed letting some eggs through. So, there you have it... a golf ball sized cyst that should reduce but will be operated on in two months as well as fixing my tubal ligation. What fun eh?

Well now what?

Well to my surprise I've had tons of visitors to my blog and I don't know where they came from but I do know when I hit 10,000 visitors I wanted to do a giveaway. Now seeing that's now passed I should do something else. I want to do a gift card giveaway and since I know you can get several people as a certain number on the counter on my blog I will think of something for the first 5 people that can email me a screen shot showing their visit number. It will take me a couple days to figure it out. Till then, do you have any suggestions for possible gift card prizes? It's not going to be for much but hey, anything is better than nothing right? Leave me a comment!

Monster Cookies

This is courtesy of a calendar I have and we loved the cookies... They were really easy to make as well. I also made my cookies a bit smaller than what the recipe calls for so I'd have more.

1 Pouch Betty Crocker chocolate chip cookie mix
1 Pouch Betty Croker peanut butter cookie mix
1 1/2 C. quick oats
1 C butter or margarine, softened
3 eggs
1 C M&M's

Heat oven to 375 F. In large bowl, stir all ingredients except candies until soft dough forms. Stir in candies. On ungreased cookie sheets place about 1/4 cupfuls dough about 3 inches apart. Bake 12-13 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool 2 minutes, remove from cookie sheets and cool completely on cooling rack. Store at room temp. in covered container.

One hint I like to do with my cookies to keep them soft over time is to put a slice of bread inside the container with them. It also works with hard cookies also.


So we got fishing licenses this year and have had lot's of fun trying various spots and not catching anything. We've been camping to fish as well as visiting local spots. Here's some pictures for you to enjoy! We love spending time together and this is one great way to do it.

What in the world?

I just noticed my counter was at 11,000! When did that happen????

Thank you for the visits and would love to know who's visiting. Please leave me comments! Now I suppose I need to post more eh?
