My bones are tired.... I think I will bury them in the snow

Well I went mad crazy... I chopped off all of my hair.... No Really I did it myself.... No I don't cut hair, never have.... I just took the scissors and started hacking away..... I cut about 14 inches off.... I couldn't brush it anymore.. With my arthritis and bursitis in my right shoulder it makes it so hard to brush long hair.... I am diggin it though... Not even close to being straight that makes me extra happy... I love looking just a bit off... Makes me smile!

My appt is coming up on the 1st.... I have my physical and history to get ready for surgery on the 13.... I am supposed to be on my diet... But today I sucked at it.... I however have not smoked my 1 a day cig since Sat... Not as hard as I thought it would be.. I know that everyday I have great friends praying for me and believe me you I can feel it...... Deep breath here.......

I don't have much to say tonight I am tired, but can't sleep... I canned up 6 quarts of homemade spaghetti sauce I will blog that on my other blog.. I also made other things a cranberry/ orange cake.. strawberry muffins and 6 loaves of banana bread and two loaves of french bread.. I am tired.. But Brian needs things to eat when I am gone.. I have made tamales and put them in the freezer. 5 loaves of wheat bread and strawberry freezer jam is next.... I have a couple more soups to freeze and one or two more batches of taco meat to put up and he should be good to go for a week...... Ugggg I am just rambling now!

My name is Martina and I have a few problems!


  1. I am constantly touched by your words. If I could, I would pop over and help you get ready for this next stop in your great journey. I'm sending warm thoughts your way...

  2. I can't wait to see your hair!
    Hey if Brian needs anything he can call us and we can help him out, and he could come by for a meal or 2 also.
    I pray for you several times a day and yup that won't stop!
    I Love you

  3. Wow...I am exhausted just reading that food list. I am so excited for you about your surgery. I am praying everyday.

  4. Girl, you have been one buzy, buzy lady. I didn't know about your surgery.
    Girl, my cousin had that done 3 years ago and did fantastic. Whe looks and feels great. Many of her medical problems have been subsided by her wight loss. She no longer has to take those Embrel shots for her arthritis as often, he blood sugar AND pressure is phenominal compared to what it was. As a matter of fact, she has been able to reduce her Metform dose by half.
    You're a trooper........I can tell.
    "Dear Father God, Creator of all, please put your loving and healing arms around my new Alaskan friend. Give her strenght and peace in her heart that all will be well. Guide her doctor's hands and bless them with your tenderness, wisdom and power. Afterall dear Father, she is Miss Cuga of 2009 and we don't have a runner up to fill in for her while she is getting her strength back. Please place Your tender mercies and grace upon her and surround her with Angel's. Amen".
    What??? You don't think God has a sense of humor?? Yall don't have a Walmart over there? Everytime I go to the one here, I certainly see God's sense of humor, lol.
    Take good care and be strong girl. You got friends and those friends got an ear to the Big Daddy of them all :)

    Steady On
