New Post

Ok so I am not a very exciting title/post person so this one is "New Post" blah I know.

Spring continues here in God's country. I purchased 6 blueberry bushes to put in, with the sunshine it seems like April, and that "gardening bug "has hit. Well in the mind mostly.

Yesterday was a clinic day. Scott had a bone density test and his osteoporosis is in the normal range so it truly can be reversed and a great blessing. His blood work looked good, his first one out of chemo was a bit scary but good now. She is testing it every two weeks for awhile on him.

We had Booboo and Butters while Sarah and Dan got to take a working free vacation to Vegas but first we went to CO for the weekend to visit the other grandbabies, I hugged and kissed Sawyer so much we now share the family cold. I picked up the other two in Spokane coming home from the airport then took them back to Spokane on Wed and flew out to SLC with Jim to dental meetings. We spent Wed and Thurs nights in SLC attending meetings then Friday the college coed and her brother come up to eat at "The Roof" to celebrate her birthday then spend the next two nights with Don and D'anne. Pen and Ben, Don and D'anne, Sadie, Dan, Jim and I went out to eat where my nephew John Boy works and spent Sat evening talking and laughing and celebrating yet another birthday celebration for our spoiled but cute daughter and nearly COLLEGE GRADUATE! So fun to be with my family I miss my siblings allot and their families. I told Sadie we are done with her birthday celebration for another year!

Danny is going back to Brasil in May for an internship so he won't graduate till next December. Looks like they both will leave without true love from the university. It takes my children time to find the perfect one, marriage is for eternity so take your time chillins! Well, for some of you it is ok..... you now can date, hold hands and EVEN marry!

Spring break is around the corner, Scott only has two left! After having a search in for a year and not getting what we wanted I spent days looking at discounted places and flights till my head and finger tips are blistered. We finally have a trip! It is a fun time we spend with the kids each year that are still at home, and in school. Danny did work it out to meet us in Mexico a couple years ago. Money is tight but squeaking money out of our savings is always worth it. We can live on our food storage!

No new updates on Josh, Big D 3 times a week 4.5 hours each time.

Spending time working on family search and attending the temple, something I didn't think I'd get to do till I was an old lady, (NO I'M NOT NO I'M NOT) I am going on a Quilting retreat soon, will be good to just work on projects and not get interrupted for 3 wonderful days! Plugging along on getting paperwork figured out for taxes, something I so hate to do.

So enjoy your time with your family and friends, each day is so unsure, the only sure thing is we can be together forever with our Savior and family if we live right, any of us can be taken any second, any time.

So I love you guys whomever is reading this!

Today's Message of the Day is:
Life is short, Break the rules, Forgive quickly, Kiss slowly, Love truly, Laugh uncontrollably, And never regret anything that made you smile... (from a email I received)

Slow days of Winter!

Has been a month plus since the last post. Not much happening in the family, and that is a good thing. Benjamin has gone back to CA, Sadie and Danny back at school, my mom back home and I so love the quiet days alone 4 days a week. I so love Monday mornings.

We are heading out to CO to visit the other grand babies and Luke and Janna for the long weekend. Then next week Jim and I going to SLC for dental meetings and spend the weekend with the college kids.

Scott had his first non chemo appointment 2 weeks ago and labs but has to return tomorrow for more labs making sure his ANC is going up. His doctor and all his nurses sang a song for him and gave him a basket of huge cookies to end his treatments, it was so sweet. He has broken out with a bad rash since he has been off treatment so they want to keep up on it and we keep trying lots of different medicine and nothing is helping. This is the easy stuff tho. Being a red head doesn't help.

Scott and Sam's two friends, and also brothers have both been in the hospital the last 3 weeks one with a staff infection in his shoulder and 2 days after he got out of the hospital the other brother got strep throat and had kidney issues. Heavenly Father so blesses us with these trials with our children.........we just don't see them as such for awhile.

Our Josh turned 33 on Sunday and Sadie 23 tomorrow. I can't believe I am old enough to have a 33 yr old son. Josh and Chiu-yi are doing fine, just hoping and praying for a kidney miracle.

We have had the warmest winter on record so far, last year we set records in the snow fall. It has given everyone spring fever, looks like the tulips will be popping up their heads any second.
I bought a basket full of tulips & primroses for the house just so it looks like spring inside. I really wouldn't mind a good snow storm tho to cover up the ugly grass.

So life is good for the Lee's, it is a great time of our lives enjoying watching Sam play basketball and being able to eat nearly every dinner together. Not many conflicts in the schedule anymore. Life is slower and we are truly blessed. Jim turned 57 last week so good to have things slow down a bit.
