13 Things Going On With Your Family - Lamp Unto My Feet

M is for Marcus - available at vinylvineyard at

Lamp Unto My Feet shares with us 13 Things Going On With Her Family.

I'll share 7 things going on with our family!

1. I had an anxiety attack that put me in the ER yesterday. I'm actually taking the day off today.

2. I started my injections but no change. My husband and I decided to stop the plan and switch doctors.

3. We decided to get a digital converter for the bedroom and Dish Network for the livingroom.

4. Marcus has been a terrific caregiver to Toby. We are really proud of him. Not once did we have to nag him to take him out, feed him or watch him. I think Toby is healing nicely.

5. Toby is fitting in great with our crazy family. The customers and staff think he's addorable. Charles and I love walking him during the evenings.

6. Marcus has a very nice girlfriend named Summer. Since they live so far apart they see each other once a week. She's the first girlfriend that Charles and I actually liked.

7. We started using I was tired of not knowing where the money was going. Well after a month of tracking receipts we were unpleasantly surprised to see alot of waste. Thanks to my blogging buddy Simple Mom for the link!

Don't Leave Me Heavenly Father

Mystery Bush on the Property

Thank you Heavenly Father for being with me.

I'm not sure I want to continue with 7 more weeks of treatments. I'm still not feeling "quite right" ~ remember I work fulltime and I need to be there.

Charles and I will continue to discuss the possible of stopping the treatments, for now. Today, I'm happy to be home with my family.

Do You Have a TV in Your Bedroom? Join In The Conversation at Lucy's Life

Lucy's Life has an interesting question about TV in your bedroom and if and how it impacts how you feel in your bedroom.

Read Lucy's Life's questions before stopping by her blog to respond and read the other comments.
For those of you who are married, do you have a TV in your room? Why or why not? Is this something you made an active decision about? Did your parents have a TV in their room when you were growing up? Did this impact your choice?

Status on Toby

Marcus and Toby

Toby is starting to balance himself on his broken leg. We also notice he's wanting to be more active.
