Country Jam...Part 2

We had a good time on Saturday, except for the thunderstorm that went through around 5:30. The VIP area was full of water. It was gross, but we went back to our chairs anyway. Clay Walker and Carrie Underwood were great. Earlier in the afternoon it was hot and sunny. Maggie and I got our picture taken with Sarah Johns. Maggie is holding a postcard from The Loopy Ewe of their logo Loopy. On September 1st they are giving away gift certificates from the pictures submitted. Check out their website and go to photo galleries. Click on Summer 2008 and see some of the neat places he's been this summer.

I had an MRI done yesterday on my shoulder. I have bursitis and a tear in my rotator cuff. I was give a cortisone shot and will do some physical therapy. The doctor said I will need to have surgery, but hopefully not for a few years. I am very thankful for that. I've had enough surgeries to last for awhile!!! I'm still not knitting a lot so really have nothing new to share.

Maggie had fun at her friend's cabin last weekend, but ended up with a concussion and whiplash from tubing behind the boat. She was launched into the air and landed so hard that it knocked the wind out of her in addition to the other stuff. She has to take it easy for two weeks. She will be going to volleyball camp on the 20th for four days, then home for three days and off to YMCA camp on the 27th for a week. I'm thankful that she is doing better. She doesn't like having to stay home and relax, but if she wants to recover quickly and go to her camps, she must.

I'm off to check emails and then bed.

New Camera.....
Tom gave me a Canon Rebel for my birthday a month ago. I'm still learning how to use it but I was able to get some good shots last night at the fireworks.

We had an awesome fireworks display. It amazes me how they come up with the designs in the fireworks. Two had hearts inside a circle, and one had a five pointed star. Anyone out there know how it all works?
Maggie went up to a friend's cabin on Thursday so it was strange not having all of my kids with me yesterday. It's all part of letting them grow up and away. The boys are still outside with some of the neighborhood kids firing off some small fireworks. I didn't want them to go, but Tom told me to lighten up. Again, another moment to let them grow up. They are to be home in ten minutes then I can go to bed and stop worrying.

Knitting has been sparse. My shoulders are really bothering me. I did make a wash cloth, but I'm not going to post a picture since it isn't that exciting. I am going to see the doctor on Tuesday, so hopefully I can get some relief with some physical therapy. I'm off to watch SNL and wait for the boys. Happy knitting!
