Don't know why I didn't think of this sooner, but Thanks to my Mom-in-law you all are getting the info. Although there are only actually a few days left to register (fill out paperwork and get it back to Tommy via email) it is possible to get a chance to go on the Tiger Cruise on board the USS John C. Stennis with Tommy! Not only that but this cruise has some special events along with it. First they are having an air show and next they are showing the new Transformer movie and will have some of the actors on board as well. So anyway if you are interested you need to do 2 things. 1) Email Tommy ( firstname.lastname@example.org )and tell him of your interest and 2) got to the ship's website http://www.cvn74.navy.mil/home.html and get the forms to fill out and then you have to email them to Tommy to turn them in. I realize this is very short notice but if you want to and you hurry, (as there is like 3 days left I think, June 10th) hurry like the wind! So good luck and Happy Sailing!!!
PS... BTW, on the first page of the Stennis website, somewhere in the sea of blue, is our one and only Tommy! It's a little like playing Where's Waldo, so good luck finding him. If you need a clue just ask.

We just found out that Catlyn is graduating with honors! She has a GPA of 3.276 and is one of about ten in her class to graduate with honors.
And not to be out done by his baby sister,
Great news to share with all! Tom and I are very proud of our kids. Including Sammy, Bryon and Nick! BTW, I was negligent and didn't post that Nick past his EMT class and not only that he was 2nd in the entire class!!! So kudos to all my kids!

They had their first ultra sound of the baby and first of all its only one, as Sammy says a big "WHEW!" and 2ndly it's a ... well I don't want to spoil it for you if you want to be surprised, so if you want to find out mail me or Sammy and we'll be happy to tell you. I hope to have a copy of the ultra sound to post today.
Tomorrow's Easter, so have a Blessed Easter to all and be joyful for He is Risen! Till later...

So now I can "WHEW" after getting the results this morning! All clear! So I don't have to go back til July for a check up. However that was the up-side of my morning! Last week after seeing my regular doc and setting up an appointment to see a specialist for my carpal tunnel which I thought was for today. Wrong! Its for tomorrow so I dragged Tommy out in the snow yet again to take me to a doctors appointment for nothing. Yes we have yet MORE SNOW!!!! At least they let me take the x-rays so I don't have to be there quite as early tomorrow. I am praying that all the snow will leave before then so I can drive myself. I really don't want to have either of the boys to have to take me.
The "Whoa" comes from still having to deal with this specialist and still to come is the dermatologist and GYN. I tell you I am just falling apart. Well I am taking it all one step at a time for now and just praying that my life will de-stress a bit now. I know I surely can use that
by now. I just feel a little over whelmed with all these doctors appointments not only for me but for Tom too. He has just been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and has recently begun a medication treatment as a first step. So far so good. He still has a lump on his leg that it still undiagnosed. His appointments have had a disruption since his company has changed insurances again. So he should be seeing the doc again soon for the lump. Though we do know it is not a tumor. So depending what comes up with the carpal tunnel will depend on my Spring break plans. Sorry Dan, Jenny and the Bugs. I may not be able to make it after all. Tin having a doc thought I would like to hold any possible surgeries off till summer so my work in not impacted. So much seems to be happening so fast. I guess that's the difference in having a doctor that listens to you. And actually telling some one that there is an issue. I tend to ignore things and suffer with them for a long time, because my kids have always come first, but now that they are all but gone I have been telling on myself. It's a weird feeling.
So I think that's all for now. Hope all is well with you all. Take Care and God Bless, Pam and Clams

Well as far as I can tell something is in the air and its spreading from FL or actually MT to CA to oh yea and Vegas and now it's up here! First about 3 maybe 4 weeks ago (from 1/25/09) one of my best friends in FL tells me her son and his girlfriend are expecting in March! I said "What?!?!?!" and then she said "Oh, didn't I tell you?" Can you tell we hadn't spoken in a while??? Hmmm, yes we have to work on that. Anyway, she is very excited, but very bummed since her son is in MT. Then I hear about the newest addition coming to the Watterlond family in Vegas. Congratulations one and all! I hope the shower went well!
Then my cousin tells me I am going to be a great aunt sometime in either Aug or Sept.! So excited!! I was telling everyone. Started planning what to crochet for her and looking at patterns and yarns. it was all good. Then one week later, just one week! My daughter Samantha calls and tells me that she and her husband are expecting and due Sept 19th! Well I must say it has taken me a while for it to soak in what that really meant. I suddenly felt really old and yet not old enough. Does that make sense? Well, it did to me. Now I am warming up to the idea of becoming a grandma, it's starting to not sound so bad.
Those of you who know or have known my cousin Debbie and I should have realized by now the most humorous part of our daughters both being pregnant at the same time. It seems that all our life Deb and I have always done things either together or very close to each other. We were born with in 8 months of each other. we went to rival high schools in the same town, we became engaged close together and married one month apart. Then had our first babies almost literally together even though we were thousands of miles and many country boarders apart from each other. In fact Amanda was born on my due date and Nick came 17 days later. So if you think about it Deb and I are still doing things together, but now its through our daughters. Deb and I have always been close and even the miles that separate us has never changed that. We have a bond that is indestructible. She more than my cousin, she my best friend and my sister and I can't imagine life with out her in it. Love ya Deb!
So this is my first blog in Feb. Pretty mushy but its February it's supposed to get mushy! Needless to say I have several crocheting projects going on which is not doing my carpal tunnel and favors, but I have til May for one and the other two I have til Sept so I'm not too stressed yet. I do have an appointment to look in to my CT for next week but not planning on really doing anything about it til this summer so I won't miss work. Something to post later when I know whats going on with it, among other things as the develope.
So friends thats it for now. Take Care and God Bless, Pam and Clams

Today I have been uploading pictures onto the Picasa page I created I don't know how long ago, but decided that since no one is going to the family page anymore I might as well post where everyone is at. I haven't figured out how to get to the actual Picasa address yet, but I am working on it. Maybe after I get all the photos up, I can get to the "view my page" section and get it then. Until then, Thanks for stopping by.
Take Care and God Bless,
Pam and Calm
PS... Did you notice my new addition? It reminds me of Mom, she loved fish in fish tanks.

Finally after 2 tries and then having to move them to where I wanted them not once but twice! These are some of Cate's nature shots. The first three are just after a nice rain fall.
These next two were after the first frost this year. The first one is frost and the second is ice crystals. She has quite an eye for these things I think. Much better than her ol'mother for sure.
Now here are a few shots of the wedding party for Sammy and Bryon's wedding. We didn't get near the shots I was hoping for, but oh well. So from left to right they are Alesha, Kristin, Sammy, Bryon, Eric, Beau and Alyssa. The ring bearer never came to the reception so we have no pictures of him.
Well folks this is it for now. Now let us see if I can get this posted before I loose it again. Yes, I lost it once already. Well, I thought I did. Thankfully it does an automatic save and I only lost part of it, but I did have to redo many of the photos a few times. It looks like I have to build the page from the bottom up when I am adding pictures because they all load up at the top and then they have to be moved to the bottom and then you have to move all the text to where it was in the first place. Lots to learn, but I am trying.
