Life

I watched the trailer of sister keeper on Amazon and boy, that seems a tough movie ... I made the mistake to watch it with Emma next to me ... Big mistake : she asked : why are you crying mommy? Oh it's nothing Emma: your brother got leukemia and your baby brother stem's cells from his umbellical cord are stored in a blood bank just in case ... ( disclaimer: Steb is an happy accident which means we didn't plan on getting pregnant during Pierre's illness but it did happen ) I'd love to be able to see that movie because it's a very interesting topic but I will be able to watch it only if there is a happy ending ... Is there a happy ending? But even though it will be fine at the end, would I be strong enough to watch it without sobbing during the whole movie?

You remember my knee problem? Well, the doctor gave me an anti inflammatory medecine for the back of my knee that messed my stomach so I had to stop the medecine that was helping the pain behind my knee and now I had to get a medecine to heal my stomach ... I guess I now have to check which natural remedy I could take to help ... Do you know any?

I also took Emma to the doctor because the poor girl has a knee that cracks like an old chair ! We already went to the doc for the same reason and he had said, it will stop but it didn't and sometimes it hurts. She will have to have an X ray to see what's going on. A 9 years with a cracking knee is very weird ...

Chuy was expecting a package from one of his brother: it took two weeks to arrive ... (it's an important detail )

Oh a cereal box!
Nooo, I'm kidding. Look, there is a plastic bag inside : fresh (after 2 weeks?) chili peppers !!!
But what is under the bag? A tee shirt for a Texas deprived man ...
And some goodies for the kids:
But wait: who's missing? Who didn't get anything? Any idea? I'll say it's always the same person ...

Today, I went to spend the money that we patiently saved money for: the Wii ! We could have gotten it a long time ago but we chose to teach the kids patience. We decided to make them appreciate the gift, to show them that we don't always get what we want: sometimes we have to wait, sometimes we have to save money and sometimes we can't get what we want. If you are curious and want to see what we got for the whole family and what we got Emma, it's here !!! For obvious reasons (like a curious 9 yo) I couldn't add direct pictures to this post !!! She's going to be so excited by that gift !!! Oh! Our playing little device is in an unusual color ...

But maybe all you wanted to see was my stitching? Too late I know, it's always at the end of my post !!! I'm so predictible !!! I finished my three bird houses and now have started the frame: one bird is done.
See the detail:
Enjoy , it's friday !!! Have a great week end !!!

It looks like a great movie, Need to see it too.
Hope the knee and stomach are better soon.
Poor Emma hope they can find something and fix it.
Love the Lanarte, it looks so lovely, and you are going so fast...

Hi,
hope you feel better soon. The wii and the piano looks like fun.

Nice gifts; sounds like you'll be having fun at your house. Take my advice - don't go see the movie; read the book. You'll be much happier that you did. I refused to go see the movie because they totally changed the ending (thus ruining the entire plot, thought-provoking mindset, etc.) It's an intense book that will blow your mind because you're so surprised at different things that happen. One major warning - it is loaded with profanity, which I hate and normally don't touch. However, the plot is phenomenal. Let me know what you think if you do read it. :)

Nick is jealous because they don't have black Wiis over here. You are FLYING on this project. It looks so great!!

No fair getting a package with presents for everyone but you. *hugs*

Enjoy the WII! I can't believe you didn't make them wait for Christmas for it!

Love this design. It's so pretty and it's stitching up so fast. That teeny bird is adorable.

Chiloe, I read the book and must say that it was a very emotional read.
I love your birdhouses so much that I started one of my Lanarte kits myself. Just couldn't resist, lol. Great progress!

Dawn said...

Oh, Chiloe!! **hugs** Don't watch the movie if you don't want to go thru it again. I'm sorry that the med isn't working for you. Oh hope your daughter knee feel better soon. Your project look wonderful. You need to teach me how to speed up on stitching. LOL ~ Dawn ~

Fun packages! Sorry you were left out of the first one :o( Don't feel bad, I have the same problem with DH's family.

Can you ask your doctor for a liquid form? It's one that you apply directly on the site, you don't have to ingest it.

Your stitching is just as lovely as always :o)

Andie said...

Just wanted to say.... don't watch the movie!! I read the book and cried the whole way thru it! It does not have a happy ending... but was a good read *hugs*

Your stitching looks great! Nice gift for the family. a Wii! Boo to your BIL for not sending you something. Maybe the peppers were meant as a shared gift?

Dani - tkdchick said...

I'm reading the book right now for My Sister's Keeper, its not making me cry... yet. YOu could always choose to read the book before seeing the movie, they're usually way better.

Those birdhouses aer just lovely!

Akila said...

Oh poor you and Emma. Hope you both are alright very soon.
