My reader seems to be working fine, although I don't use it often. I usually just check the blog list on my blog.

How is everyone doing? It has been raining here the last several days and will continue until the weekend. I guess not much gardening will get accomplished.

The weather here is near perfect! Rain coming Thursday-my day off of course! But oh well! Good excuse to stay inside and make something!

We have had rain since Sunday and we do not expect clear sky's until maybe Sat. It is so cold here I am still wearing my Winter coat and my heat clicked on last night, it is set at 59.

Gale - I hope your hand is feeling better real soon! I type all day and I am very lucky not to have carpal tunnel syndrome.

Becky - I am still wearing a light coat to work in the morning (crazy). Everything is so soggy.

I haven't had the energy the last few days to stamp. I hope I'm not getting burned out. Have any of you felt that way? Did it last very long?

Wanted to drop everyone a quick note and say HI! I've been quite the busy Mom lately .. loving it! I don't want it to end 'cause when it does, that means my son is really done with high school and soccer. I'm already dreading August ... both of my children will go off to college. An empty nester ... yikes!

I apologize for not checking out everyone's blog as frequently as I had been. Next month everything should slow down. Saturday our family is off to Disney World for a week. I won't have internet at our timeshare so will not be checking your blogs until next month.

Have a great day!

Hi Ladies,

I was able to make the rounds yesterday and hope all is well. We sure have a heat wave here in New York with the humidity. I hope you don't mind me posting some garden pictures along with my cards. This is the only time of the year I get my hands dirty!

Pam - I hope you had a wonderful time in Disney. Welcome back!

Does anyone have anything exciting planned for the summer?

Gale,

False Indigo is very pretty and will get tall. Do you have to stake them? I guess the fence would help with keeping them upright.

It seems like everything is blooming at once and I have been shooting pictures while things are in bloom and will post when I can. I am still waiting for my peonies to bloom though. My trouble is roses ... they don't always like to come back the next year and I have started to spray the leaves, but I already see holes in them. I think they need a lot of care - more time than I have!

Becky - how did everything go with your move a while ago? All settled?

Michelle - any new creatures at your place? All the snakes accounted for?

Hi Kari,

Thanks for stopping in! You have been busy as a bee! I'm off to check out your bathroom redo. Can't wait to see pictures of the graduation.

Hi Ladies,

I’m sorry to have to inform you that Michelle has decided to step down from the group. She has some personal issues right now and I am sending prayers her way. I hope you will too.

She feels bad that she hasn’t been able to post and visit weekly. I assured her family comes first and not to worry about the blog group.

It has been a pleasure having Michelle with us, and if in the future she would like to return I have asked her to email me. Our “fairy girl” will be missed.

We currently have nine members so as a group what would you like to do? Are we alright with this number or would you like me to open it up for new members?

I also want to say I am sorry I haven’t gotten to know each of you better and will do my best to keep this forum going. Please feel free to share any ideas you may have.

I will stop by to visit each of you Saturday morning before I head outside to do some gardening. I have one large garden left to weed and mulch. Hopefully, I will get a little R&R on Sunday.

Wishing you all a sunny weekend!

Yes, I am still here! Sorry to hear about Michelle! Michelle we will miss you! I did so enjoy your blog and I loved hearing about your critters! Sending hugs & prayers your way!

I too am flexible! We can open the group up to one more or stay at nine.

I feel the same...we can leave it for the summer if you want. Summer is crazy for me!! LOL

I am out of town for 2 weeks here shortly, so please bear with me if my internet is sketchy. I will preschedule posts, but don't know what kind of access I am going to have.

thank you guys for the prayers. I will try to post whenever I can, however i got lots on my plate right now.

#1 my husbands kidney's. as a kid he was diagnosed with Familia nephritis (genetic kidney disease) and found out his right one is failing and the left one is stressed. We've seen a few docs, and on The 15 He see's the nephrologist to see what to do now and where to go from here.

#2 working away trying to pay bills off as with no health insurance the docs are going to get quite expensive,especially if they have to remove his kidney as last year he had rotator cuff surgery we are still trying to pay for.

#3 being apartment hunting. were having problems with a neighbor and the law enforcement wont do nothing about her threating me. and i just dont feel comfortable living here no more. we've had 1 person just walk right into our apartment last fall after being down at the bar all night. so were looking to get an apartment away from the bars.

I will try to keep posting about my critters and such when my time will allow it. i plan on posting and then get busy and forget.

I will also try to come back ever now and then and let everyone know how all is fairing along.

thank you guys. I will miss being apart of the group and hopefully things will settle down where i can get back to the craft mode and enjoy life again.

Hello Gals! Just wanted to pop in and say hi! Hope everyone is well.

Michelle, my heart goes out to you and your family. Will keep you all in my prayers. I too enjoyed reading about your critters but have to admit that I'm VERY glad that they are at your house and not mine. LOL

I'm fine with keeping the group to nine wonderful stampers! I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

It appears as though we have lost several more members from this group (at least they are not making the rounds to my blog).

Sorry I have been MIA. I visited everyone today, left comments and actually posted. Will try to be better. I actually have several draft posts in my cue and will make an effort to visit everyone at least twice a week.

We are finally having my older daughter's birthday party. Her birthday was in January but with my mother so ill, we had to postpone the party. She is excited to have a summer birthday party for a change. Have a good weekend everyone.

Hi Ladies,

Good morning. I started to make the rounds this morning before work, but only got through half the alphabet. I will finish up visiting everyone tonight.

I know summertime can be very busy. It is really nice to hear from some of you.

Hi Ladies,

Good morning. I stopped to see everyone last night. I'm starting to feel left out of my own blog group. I'll need to make a decision as to whether or not I am going to keep the group. Thanks.

I know, I have not posted for 2 weeks which is unusual for me! My job is killing me. They hired me for 16 hours a week, then after I did the 40 hour/5 day orientation they asked if I could work at least 32 hours for the next 8 weeks! (And I have a good commute added on...40 minutes each way.) I mean, I am grateful for a job, but it is so hard...plus I have the 3 kids, too. I have not found a good balance as of yet. I am hoping that once they are back in school (11 days...but who is counting...) I will have some time for myself.

I have been pretty good about rounding until this past week, though, so at least I have been commenting! This past week though I just did not make it to blurf. DH is away and single parenting is making me exhausted. And here I sit at 11:30 folding socks and underwear...I bet you are jealous.

I have noticed that many of my blog groups have kind of fizzled. I wonder if people are focusing more on challenges or something?? It does not seem like people are on SCS as much anymore either.

I realize summertime is busy for everyone, including myself. All I ask is that you check in once in a while on this forum. I really would like to keep this group going. I understand it is difficult to post sometimes. I work full-time too and try to squeeze in stamping after work when I can. I recently received an email from a non-blog group member stating they wanted to see more of my cards - I'm trying to keep everyone happy!

I know some of you post every day and I may not be able to get to you right away so I hope you understand too.

One of the things I would like to stress is if you are in a blog group and have some time to post comments you should post them first to the blog group members before leaving comments on other blogs.

Gale - I am very sorry to hear about your dog. I hope the vet is able to assist you. I know our pets are an important part of the family. I'm also sending wishes for your Dad. Keep us posted.

Siobhan - I know how difficult it can be juggling work and finding time for crafts. I don't know about the 11:30 p.m. sock folding - I would be fast asleep by then. I do agree that people are not posting comments much anymore on SCS. I often wonder if I should keep posting my cards on here or just my blog.

Rhonda - I hope you are doing alright and that your health has improved when you read this.

Diane - How did your daughter's birthday party go? I hope you had nice weather.

It was great to hear from Michelle, but I feel so bad with what she is going through. I'm sending hugs to her and the rest of the group.

Thank you for checking in and I wish we can be more interactive. Have a great week ladies!

Hello everyone! Yep! I am still here. All my medical tests came back good-just a little scare but all is well!

I have been busy too with work but I think I have managed to visit and comment at least once a week. Actually I look forward to it!

Siobhan-I know what you mean about folding socks at 11:30 that's my best time for doing laundry! I know what you mean about your job. Mine too is supposed to be part-time but I have worked over 40 the last couple of weeks. It is great to have a job but...

Donna-I will try to check in here more often!
