Update On Jim, Etc., Etc., Etc.

First of all, I wanted to take a moment to thank-you all for the well wishes for Jim's speedy recovery from his fall. I showed him all the comments I received & even he was touched that people I never even met would be so kind & caring! Jim went to see his regular doctor yesterday & he gave him a prescription for some Naprosyn to help with the swelling. He said if that doesn't help, then he wants to do an MRI of his leg next week, but he is starting to feel a little better & can get around now without using the crutches, so that's great news & hopefully the MRI won't be necessary! I've had to drive him to work everyday this week, but I really didn't mind. I just went back to bed when I got home ;) I made him stay home from bowling on Wednesday so he could keep his leg propped up & I doubt he'll be bowling anymore this summer. We only have 2 more weeks left of our summer league anyway.....I can't wait till it's over with! I just get so burned out when I bowl in the summer for some reason.

Since we couldn't do much during the long holiday weekend, I did do some scrapbooking. Here are the 2 layouts I did.....the one above is about my hubby's gorgeous blue-green eyes :) This one below took me less than an hour to do! That never happens! But as soon as the idea popped into my head, it just all came together so fast & I love the way it turned out!
Carrie posted a Ten For Tuesday challenge on The Scrapbook Zone's message board to list our Top 10 July 4th Memories, but to be honest, I don't think I have that many. I guess you could add this year to an memory that I would love to soon forget, lol. But other than that, the only other good memory I have about the 4th of July was back in 1993 when we had a family reunion at my Dad's house. It was actually the last time all 5 of us sisters were together with our families at the same time. I did a layout about it last year.....you can see it here: Remember. This layout is very special to me since we don't have very many pictures of all of us together & especially after losing Karen! My only other 4th of July memories are just of going to see the fireworks & being with my family. There's not really a particular year that stands out in my memory, except for the family reunion in 1993.

Another challenge posted by Melissa on 2 Peas was to share our favorite summer movie. I'd have to say that so far, "Click" is the best movie we've seen this summer. I love Adam Sandler & I think he did a great job with this movie as well! Jim & I also went to see "The Lake House" & while it was a little confusing (still trying to figure out why they were living 2 years apart from each other!), it was truly a romantic movie. I think Keanu Reeves & Sandra Bullock should become a couple in real life :) Another pretty good movie was "The Break Up", although I was a little disappointed with the ending. If you haven't seen it yet, I won't ruin it. But the weird thing about this movie was how much Jim & I both saw ourselves (and each other) in it. Almost kind of scary when you think about it! Other movies that we're planning to go see this summer are "You, Me & Dupree" & also "Talladega Nights". Hopefully they're both as funny as they look :)

Not too much going on this weekend. I may try to drag Jim out to The Scrapbook Zone tonight since they're having their Freaky Friday sale. I figure he can just sit & watch tv while I shop :) Then either tomorrow or Sunday, I'm thinking about going to a Rubber Stamp & Scrapbook Show in Dearborn. I've never gone to this one before, so I'd like to check it out.

That's all for now.....hope you have a great weekend!
