Where Has The Time Gone?

I really wanted to have a great new recipe to post today but I never got around to making anything. Since the weather was so nice, we spent all weekend working on our pool, porch and garden. We also visited the Prime Outlets near us and did some much needed shopping. And after all that, we celebrated my birthday over the weekend and we had so much cake and ice cream that making something sweet didn't seem appealing at all!

My eldest daughter is getting her adenoids out tomorrow so everyone is on edge about her surgery. She had been having so much trouble breathing and she sounded chronically stuffy, we just always thought she had colds. Finally, we tried a netti pot and when she couldn't get the water to go all the way through, we knew it wasn't just a cold she had. We made an appointment with the ENT. When he saw her he said her adenoids were "huge!" as he put it, so we scheduled her for surgery. It's only a 10 minute surgery and it's outpatient, but it's just the thought of having my baby under anesthetic makes me so nervous.

The business is not going too well either. I'm having issues with my partners, who are brothers (one is my brother in law). When I went to bid on a home last week, the one brother lowered his bid by $10,000 which left us without enough money to buy the house. Grrrrr! I called them and asked that we meet to get everything down on paper so next time there isn't an issue. If they keep creating problems, I'm thinking of doing this on my own and just hiring them to fix the homes for me. The person who said that you don't have a real business unless you are losing sleep over it is absolutely right!

I'm hoping for my next post to be able to bake soon and post something yummy for everyone.

unducevoHope everything went well with your daughter's surgery and that she'll be able to breathe easier.
A belated Happy Birthday to you!! Glad you got to enjoy cake and ice cream.
Hope you can work out the problems with your business. I imagine it's difficult when you have several partners.

Thanks Sweet. My daughter is spending most of her time resting up and although she is a little sore, she seems to be getting better day by day.

My two partners decided to bail on me, but that may be a blessing in disguise since they weren't sure they wanted to do this in the first place.

Have a great weekend!

Hope the daughter is recovering nicely.

Thanks Dew. She still has a sore throat and is a little sick to her tummy, but she is breathing better. So am I!
