January 30, 2008 (Wednesday) 4:21 am

Well, we got my daughter to the hotel on time (4:20 am), and then they flew to St. Louis, MO and then they rode the bus to Fort Leonard Wood, MO. She called around midnight to say that she just got done getting in processed. She thought that she would only be there for a week, but now it may be 3 weeks.

To kill time, I tracked her flight. It showed where the plane was, and told us the altitude & miles flown. (I know, don't I have better things in life to do?)

This was a Google flight tracker

Half way there!


This was another service I used to track her flight!

Another screen shot!

Well, that's it for now. Off to bed I go!

Today I went to the Oklahoma Heart Hospital for my Echocardiogram. I'll get my results in a week or two. The staff there are wonderful! My daughter has done her last minute packing for trip to Korea. She reports to her unit tomorrow morning at 4:20 am.

For entertainment, her dad let her stick an IV in his arm, so she could get some practice. It took her under 1 minute to get it all going. She did very good.

Sticking it to her dad!
Needle is in!
IV is started!
Her dad faking pain & my daughter enjoying it!

Well, that's it for now! Have a great day!

My hubby made Kimchi and bulgogi for supper! We are also testing our web cam, so we can video conference talk with our kids. We tested it out on my son. It works! Here's one of the screen shots. They were holding my granddaughter. Now it just makes me want to hold my granddaughter & grandson!

That's it for now! Have a great day!

I finally finished the scrapbook that I made for my daughter. I'm posting some of the pages. I used Shrinky Dinks to make little charms. Justin & Mona went shopping this morning & spent the afternoon playing some more "Guitar Hero".

Mona playing the guitar!

I went and ate Korean Food at the B-Won restaurant in Del City with Mona & Bri. It was wonderful! I had Bibimbap. Bri had Bulgoki, and Mona had some spicy noodle soup that had squid and octopus. They ate it, not me!

Justin got here around midnight. He doesn't have to return to duty until Sunday night, so he came to say goodbye to his sister before she leaves for Korea. Mike had to work in Norman this weekend, so I guess we won't see him until next week!

Sorry I didn't blog yesterday. Went to the Orthopedic Specialist & he told me that my shoulder has locked up. He gave me a cortesone shot for the pain. Now I have to go through some physical therapy to help loosen it up. (YUCK) And then my daughter & I went to the Oklahoma State Department of Health to get her a copy of her birth certificate. She has to get them in order to get a passport. When we arrived at the OK State Dept. Of Health, they were calling number 11. Mona's number was 64!

I also have been playing with 3D Stereograms, so I'm posting a couple of things I have made. If you would like to make one go to

Today, Mona & I went to see "27 dresses" It was a definite "Chick Flick", but it was good!

There is actually something written in the dark blue area!
Can you read this?

Well, that's it for now! Take it easy!

January 22, 2008 Tuesday (11:59 pm)

Today would have been a great day to do nothing medical!!!! I didn't do much again today. My daughter made it back from Fort Hood, TX where she saw an army buddy. She had a good time! For entertainment purposes, they practiced (what they were taught at the Army Technical school) giving each other IV's. (NOT MY IDEA OF FUN!!!)

We went to my family physician to pick up some x-rays (and of course) they couldn't find them, so we waited & waited. Finally got them, then we went to the local Walmart & got some groceries. We then to the pharmacy to drop off some prescriptions to get refills.

We ate at the "Texas Roadhouse". It is one of my daughter's favorite places to eat. It was delicious. And later, we went back to pick up my prescription refills, and again (MY LUCK hit) they couldn't find them. After about 10 minutes of them looking, they finally found them, but hadn't filled them, so we waited about 10 more minutes.

Okay, enough of my bitching...I'm alive, I have a roof over my head, I am well feed, I have a bed to sleep in, I have friends, a family who loves me, and for the most part - healthy!!! So I will quit whining and be Thankful for everything that I have!!!!

So tonight, I'm posting some more old pictures... This one was taken in 2000 I think.
This is the USA's largest McDonalds. If you take I-44 from OKC to Tulsa, you'll go under the it.

Well, that's it for now! Have a great day!
