just stuff

Long time, no write.  And I have no good reason.  Well, maybe being busy with life is a good reason.  Trying to catch up on twelve months of life quickly is crazy.

And sandwiched in with all the errands have been some important events.  Such as John's birthday on the 3rd.  That was lots of fun.  My parents got him a cake.  I made him spaghetti with turkey meatballs and shrimp.  Just a little experiment and it came out well.  I was going to use ground beef, but the store was out of the quality stuff, so I got the ground turkey.  It was good!

I have taken the time to watch some funny movies lately.  I have found some really inexpensive ones at Wal-Mart.  They are good movies, and family friendly.  Anyway, a couple of nights ago, John and I purchased some things, and we were walking out the door of Wal-Mart, and this loud alarm goes off.  So we stop and I tell the man who surrounds us that it must be the CDs.  Sure enough, the cashier forgot to remove something on the CDs, thus causing the alarm to go off.  Meanwhile, those walking by are staring at us.  The fact that John has a mask on doesn't help, LOL.

John wears that mask everywhere now because his counts are low, and it confuses people.  He wears it so he doesn't catch anything, but a lot of people think he wears it because he is contagious.  They run from him because they don't want to catch anything.  Some think he is a robber and is going to hold them up.  We went to a local convenience store the other night, late at night.  Everybody in there stopped dead in their tracks, even our neighbor who knows us, LOL.  They all looked at John with that mask on.  It covers his face except for his eyes.  They froze until he bought his milk and loaf of bread, LOL.  Then he left the store.  John said often that police stop at that store, making sure nobody is robbing.  I told him I would get him a T-shirt that read:  "Don't shoot.  I had a transplant!" 

Oh, I forgot to mention.  For John's birthday I got him two pairs of jeans.  And I also got him two pairs for Christmas.  Because he had NONE left that fit him.  He has lost 65 lbs.  Actually he looks quite svelte, LOL.  

I also have a few new outfits.  The most beautiful stuff I have had in years.  Christmas presents.  I feel like a girl again, LOL, instead of a boy.  Perhaps I will have John take some photos so I can show you.  Thank you, Sweeties, who gave me my Christmas presents! 

Well, I guess I better get off now.  I am not feeling the best.  I had a migraine yesterday and felt kind of yucky today.  Sorry if I have not had the time to get around to reading many journals.  I am hoping to feel better tomorrow.

Love you all,  Krissy :)

    I'd love to see some pictures of you AND John!

    Glad you have having a fun, relaxing time!


  3. i do hope you feel better soon:) spaghetti sounds so good i think we will have to have that this week:) so glad john is doing well and you both are home:)


  4. Happy Birthday to John.  Mine was on the 4th...we're practically twins except that I'm probably old enough to be his mother.  It is fun buying new duds.  I even got some new (non Avon) perfume...that's nice too.  John's birthday dinner sounds yummy !   Linda in Washington  

  5. Good to hear from you. Happy Birthday John. I pray 2007 will be a wonderful year for you two

    LOL - I think you should get that t-shirt!  That's so funny and it would put people's mind at ease.  It's so nice to hear that you guys are doing regular stuff like going to WalMart and buying bread and milk.  What a joy those little things must be after all you've been through.  Prayers are continuing your way!
    Hugs,  Kathy

  8. Don't feel bad about sounding the alarm on the way out.  Jennifer and I do it almost every time we get a CD or DVD.  The cashiers don't deactivate the sensor like they should.  Its funny, cause when we do the self checkout we are able to deactivate it just fine.  It is a little embarrassing to get stopped by the Wal Mart greeter who has to look in all of your bags.

    Lol at John! When I was in China last month lots of people wore masks because of the pollution. It's so good to know John is out and about now. Happy belated birthday to him! Have a great Sunday! Jeannette xx  

  10. Glad to see your entry.  I did enjoy your Christmas journal and thank you for it! It's always nice to have new things to start a New Year.  I know that you and John are thankful for this New Year and I pray that this will be the best ever year for you both.  'On Ya' - ma

  11. That's actually quite funny, Krissy. Btw, happy birthday to John and many happy returns of the day.

  12. Krissy,
    I am so happy to read fun stuff from you again.  God is Good.  Hugs, LUAnne

  13. Don't forget waht we talked about for As I Am. No hurry, it is your baby. I am with you 100%. I also added the links to the link journal. Let me know if it needs more. Tammy

  14. Happy "late" Birthday John!! Krissy it is nice to see you back. Yeah, girly stuff, that is always a nice gift. I am rather tom boy(ie) myself, but I clean up pretty good! Hope your migraine goes away and you feel better. Tell John, the Troopers would probably pull him over down here, just for suspision-lol....

    Wow I am glad John had a good birthday!  As for the reaction to the mask.  People can be so stupid.  I've seen that reaction before from folks and it just makes me shake my head at their ignorance.  :-)

    You guys have a great day.


  16. I love the tshirt
    Hey at least they are keeping away and not sharing thier germs with
    I am so glad to read an entry that he is home and well.
    I am sure you just needed time to sit back and enjoy some healthy time with John and rest.

  17. I was laughing at your tags. LOL  You are silly.  That must be hard for John having people stare at him.  I remember when people use to stare at me after my brain surgeries.  I had a big bandage on the back of my neck.  I would have people say, "Wow, she was shot in the neck!" real loud and stuff like that. LOL  Weird how people are.  Glad John had a good birthday.  So sorry I haven't been able to see you guys =(... Maybe soon I can.  We will see.  Love you guys!!!! xoxoxoxox

Krissy, I have had the Walmart alarm go off and I feel so embarressed.  Everybody stares.  So I can imagine John with a mask on..LOL.....He better not go into the bank.  ....I am glad you guys are getting out and doing a few things.  And having the time to watch movies.  So John is svelte....hmmmmm you must post a picture of him in his new jeans.  And one of you in your new clothes.  I keep you in my prayers always and think of you often.        Love and hugs    Myke

    OH Krissy, people are so strange. My sister broke her ankle and had surgery months ago so I go to her house and run errands for her. Well, she likes to use those moble carts, so I go into the store to get one for her. I ride it out and I cant tell you how many people stare....I think if everyone could be handicapped for one day, we would get a huge wake up call on how ignorant so many can be.

    I am glad you and John kept your sense of humor about it. Please tell him happy be lated birthday and you and he, are in my prayers....~Raven


I would love to hear from you. Now is your chance! So what do you want to say?
