Liberty's Day



I survived oral surgery.

Not only did I come out alive, I still had a little goofy pill left in me, so everything was funny.

We made a quick stop at the grocery store in search of ice cream....doctor's orders. (I'm starting to like this lady) then home to relive Ms. Dawne who stayed with the kids. My dentist even told me to sleep late and watch movies. I forced myself out of bed about 10:00 this morning and shorty thereafter my dentist called to check on me. Now I CERTAINLY like this lady....and I probably owe her an apology.

I spent the day with Liberty. Just me and her. Her birthday is tomorrow so we went shopping, ate lunch together (salad for me...thank you very much) drank a coffee together (she had chocolate milk)and we even stopped by McDonald's for ice cream (fruit and yogurt parfait for me...thank you very much and McDonald's ice cream is my absolute favorite dessert in Portugal!)



Lib then got to pick out a few things for her birthday. One of which was a calculator. She is such a nerdy little thing. She always has a notebook and pencil in her hand. And now she has her calculator too. The entire half hour drive home she quizzed me. "Mom, how much is 2,456 x 3,769?" When I couldn't answer she'd tell me how smart she USED to think I was.



While at the mall, I ran into the dentist's assistant. She was shocked to see me shopping the morning after surgery. She asked if I felt okay then told me I needed ice. I felt like I was in trouble, so I said a quick goodbye and fled.

Now I'm home, checking email, blogging and drinking a cup of tea called, "No Belly".

Hope it works.

You really are comical, Nina! How sweet to spend the day with the birthday girl and make it special; MacDonald's!! Even my husband and I like their icecream sundaes. mmmm. So, I suppose you won't be as smart as you 'use to be' until Lib turns about 21 and realizes some things. LOL.
I shall pray for your family today. The Lord be with you,
Margaret

I think every mom needs a "goofy orange pill!" So glad you survived. I must admit though I laughed at your expense. :)

Oh by the way i found this cool blog. Well, i think it´s cool sometimes when i am determined to stick with it. I thought to send it to you too cause it talks about belly fat. ( Because you mentioned that tea and for no other reason.jeje)

Hi Nina,
Thank you for stopping by,I am glad that you are feeling better. I'd rather do anything than visit a dentist office,(had some bad experiences as a chid.)

Anyhow on a happier note I would like to wish Liberty a most blessed and joyous birthday,I will also be thinking about her tomorrow as it is my mothers 81st birthday.

I just love reading about your family and would like to add you all to my prayer list.
Blessings,
Sue

I'm glad everything went well with your surgery. Ice-cream certainly makes lots of things feel better.

Oh, you don't look like you need to lose a pound! That's 100% truth.

I hate going to the dentist. I just was there last week. Had to get a temp crown on and have to go back in a week. I am glad you are feeling better and that you were able to spend some time with your daughter.

Both of you look so pretty together.
I love your blouse Nina

Tell Liberty we said "Happy Birthday"!! I hope you're feeling better too. Did you get a haircut? Maybe it just looks different, but I like it! You always look so pretty anyway. I hear you on the salad...I'm trying SO HARD to eat good. It's hard with kids, isn't it?!?! Let me know how the No Belly works...I might have to check that out! :) Talk to you soon!

Love you!
Tessa

I wish I could have been there. Tell Lib once again Mimi said happy birthday.

Nina, glad that you made it thru the surgery. WOW what a story! I am a GA teacher. We read and study about y'all all the time, (all my life, I just turned 50 and I have been a Sunbeam, a GA, an Acteen, an Acteen Leader, Acteen Director, Mission Friends Leader, GA Leader ... all my life. LOL! I think there has only been about 4 years that I have not been involved in the children/youth mission program.
