Spam... grrrr

I hated to do it but I put the word verification back on my blog.  I love to blog surf & try to leave comments but the word verification to a person with mild dyslexia is a challenge for sure - you should see sometimes with those ones that are really hard to read after 4 or 5 tries I am calling my sons or throwing the mouse.  But it seems I have been bombarded by spam comments lately & I don't want you to have to look at that nonsense so even though I didn't want I am trying the word verification to stop it.

I see that a lot of blogs use the feature where all posts are approved.  Let me know which you use & if it has helped with spam.

A quick update on my health issues... I went to the hospital yesterday for conscious sedation during the MRI tests I needed. Apparently the nerve pain even when heavily drugged breaks thru & made me want to turn on my right side a bit & lift my shoulder to get more comfortable so I wasn’t able to finish even one test. I'm so discouraged by this & normally I can just tough it out gritting my teeth - this pain is honestly worse than labor pain or kidney stones passing (I didn't think anything was that bad). It's the same level of pain as waking up from surgery in both the shoulder & both legs. Anyway now I go to another hospital for total knock out sedation. I feel ridiculous for just MRI but I have to get these tests done & figure out what is wrong. My quality of life right now is really low & it's so frustrating. Especially with getting ready to move.

I've been dying to share... we finally got a signed contract on a house! Searching foreclosures has been a challenge to say the least. I cannot believe the competitive bidding wars that we've experienced during our hunt. But with a lot of work & prayer finally we are under contract. Now we just have to get thru the appraisal & closing.... I can't wait to move in - it has a wonderful sunroom that will be my scrappy space. Here's a photo of the front. (I'll share some others later since they aren't on this computer)

So with all the bad lately there is some good.

Hope you have a great weekend.

Hey Girl :)

I am so sorry you are having such a rough time with the MRI thing.
You sure have been thru the "wringer" lately. We are thrilled for you guys on the house and what a bonus the sunroom is! You know when I am over that way visiting Jonathan and Laura I will have to stop by and check out the new scraproom :)
Take Care Girl!
