Here is an update for you all.

Dad is doing well. He was in ICU for a day and they will be moving him to a regular room when one opens up. They took the epidural out this morning and so he is feeling a little more pain than he was yesterday. They had him up walking and that wore him out so now he is sleeping. Please continue to pray for healing and for my mom  as well.

This information is mainly for family that read my blog I know this isn't fun for all the other readers...its not fun for me either.

I hope you all are having a sunny and somewhat warm day. I am so ready for spring and warm weather. How about you?

So, I'm sitting in the hospital waiting room with my family. My dad is having another surgery. We are all pretty worried but we are pretty sure everything will be ok. Please pray for him and my mom.

Life has been so crazy the last two months. Stressful to say the least! I'm so glad God is in control! We just have to put our trust in him.

So that is why Red Barn Revival has been sparse lately. Thank you for understanding.

Well, its been another week since my last post. I feel like we have been going a million directions and have got nothing accomplished! I hate that!

Dad is doing better. Pray that his surgery goes well. He will be having his gallbladder out some time this coming week. Then he will be off another few weeks. He is not aloud to eat any fat! Which is really hard. There is fat in everything!

We are celebrating my moms birthday tomorrow. Her birthday is on Valentines day so we are doing it early. She can't have gluten and dad can't have fat!! Impossible! So my sissy is making a fat free dessert, I'm doing a gluten free dessert, and my SIL is making a normal yummy dessert!

I have been looking for upholstery fabric for two chairs and an ottoman that were given to me. First of all, I'm having sticker shock...I mean there are some good prices out there if you need one or two yards but I need 20!! Not to mention the only fabric I found that I like, out of four different stores, is $30 a yard!!! Yeah, not happening! So that is kinda on hold until I get to Lowe's. I'm thinking about drop cloths...?? What do you think?

We are having a craft night this Saturday. We have several different crafts planned that will be a lot of fun. I am in charge of the T-Shirt crafts and have three different crafts that I'm excited to share! I hope to have pictures for you in a few days! We have about 20 girls coming!

You might have heard that I was really missing the snow that we normally have this time of year...well I have come to the conclusion that I am ready for spring and warm weather. I see spring flowers starting to pop up and am ready to start thinking about my garden...until.....this afternoon when I heard that we will be under a winter weather advisory for the next few days and could get 1-3 inches of snow!! It never fails!! Oh, well.

So that is an update.

Blessings to you all!

8. Thursday back to the Hospital to spend most of the day, take mom lunch and wait on the may get to go home!!

I'm sorry this isn't very fun or interesting but this is my life right now. On a happier note, the sun has been out and it has been somewhat warm that's why the truck got washed! Please pray for healing for my dad.

Hopefully next week will be more calm and I can blog about something interesting and more light-hearted!
