Blog Candy Update!

I have to do the random picker thing a little early girls, so if you haven't left a comment, please do. I will be drawing in a few hours.

I have to drive two hours out of town to Sacred Heart hospital where my grandmother is going to have open heart surgery to replace a bad valve. This comes a little earlier than expected after she passed out in the hotel elevator the morning after her angiogram (spelling?). Her other arteries are good, it's just that valve... so, instead of coming home for a couple weeks, they are keeping her and taking her in Monday morning. I am SCARED to death. I've packed my big girl panties and I'm off to be with her soon. If you can, please keep her in your thoughts and prayers. My grandma is DA bomb of all bombs!! Almost 87, but you'd never know it.

I will pick right before I leave and if the winner emails me her address, I will get the candy off in the mail first thing when I get back... probably Wednesday. Sorry for the delay. I will add something extra to the box.

THANK YOU so much!! I loved reading each and every one. We did paint our living room a mocha color and I think we will go a few shades lighter for the hallways. I am thinking we will do the family room a shade of green, like so many of you suggested. Where do you all get the Ralph Lauren paint? I'm from a small town and do not have Home Depot, or any major stores, but I can drive two hours and get that stuff. I'd love to check out that paint. :) You all gave me great advice, now I think I can go and pick a color with confidence!! THANK YOU!!!

Okay.... I'll be back later to do the drawing! Good luck ladies!!! :)

You know I'm praying! The surgery will take longer then they say - I think it's a rule to underestimate. Paint shopping would make a nice break while you're waiting.

I'm really glad your grandma is back in good spirits after her surgery. My husband has a bad valve (he's 34 now) and will have to get it repaired or replaced, too. Hugs!
