Glad to hear that Darlene is doing okay with her struggles. I can't imagine how I would be losing a child. So great that she's going to visit you in January. that will be a blast I'm sure. She shouldn't worry about getting behind on SCS. Just jump in where you can and don't worry about trying to "catch up."

It's actually been a quiet day here at the office. My boss went out early today and then back about 11:30 for a Shareholders' meeting about our lease here. That took about 1 1/2 hours and then he had 2 short meetings with 2 of the shareholders, told me he was going and dropped a banana on my desk.

I placed an order with Stampin Up over the weekend and got it delivered today. It came to my office??????? I think that I used to use my office address before I was a demo, so now that I'm not a demo,it reverted back to that delivery address instead of to my house where they have been coming. Can't wait to get home and get everything unpacked to play with! Most of it's from the Holiday Mini so it'll be Holiday cards.

I'm going to go by the nursery on my way home. I still have a few caterpillars and I only have about 5, 4" pots left from the 50 that I bought the other day!!!!!!!!!!! Can't believe I've used that many. I also used up the 9 gallon pots that I bought. He told me that he has a bunch of 4" pots but they haven't tested them yet, so I may have to do that before I transfer all of my caterpillars to them.

Default Hello!

Deep breath and a sigh! I'm back!

Son is married and we got to do a tiny bit of sight seeing. We stayed in a condo with the Schmidt family. Ray's sister fell and broke her ankle severely, so she could not come, so Stephi's friend stayed with us. She was there to watch my Mother.


The wedding was fabulous. They wrote vows to each other, and had a Unity tree with dirt from both parents homes and- a surprise to the bride, they ordered butterflies (monarch's) to let go in memory of loved ones. One dear friend- her 2nd father= let one go in memory of his deceased wife, and it landed on the skirt of her gown, then she picked it up with her finger and it flew onto her sunflower bouquet and then back over the widowed husband before it flew off...... WOW!





This is Grandma and the kids. I love that she grabbed Grandma's hand- she is so sweet!


Grandma did well until the night after the wedding She fell in the bathroom and hit her head. At the airport with my brother- they wisker her away from them and loaded her into an ambulance- apparently her black eye was suspicious of elder abuse...... She had to have a CT scan and a work-up in a Denver Hospital. Luckily, I had her medical records on a flash drive with me and sent to my brother for the ER staff to review, and they let her go- but they missed their flight...... And, she is OK and back here with me.


Maggie- wow- your butterflies have really exploded! I would love to see a pic of the hutch and...next year, you have to keep track of how many butterflies you hatch, and how much you spend on Milkweed!
Hope your pain is improved. Are you on Gabapentin or Lyrica???


Maxine- will keep your hubby in prayers- and you too for strength!


Barb- Happy Belated Birthday! Eeeks- maybe I can sneak up and see you and Darlene in January : )


Jeanette- love your red car- how fun! Hope you and Brock love your week together : ) alone.....


Kelly- praying for your safety! Matthew looks like it is hitting up a little North, and loosing a little umph as it goes up the coast.


Lynn- Oh boy- my back pain is not as bad once the disc herniated, but have numbness with less reflex in my toe, so having another steroid injection next Wednesday. Also started Lyrica last month which really helps.


Darlene- thinking of you!


Kristi- the baseball is very exciting now- we are jinxed now per hubby cause the Cubs are on the cover of Sports Illustrated. He says that every year the team on the cover looses......


Hugs to all
Shelly

Oh Shelly... that photo is priceless! I love the gown/jacket! And how sweet to have a loving hand on G'ma! And the sweet monarch story is a WOW moment for sure! Sorry about the tumble and airport issue, though. Must have been stressful for everyone.

Hi to you all - hope you are surviving Matthew, Kelly!!

Great news - my cousin is showing very little signs of brain damage after the massive heart attack, and will be having a defibrillator fitted in the next couple of days, and then she will be able to travel back to New Zealand. Her mother / my aunt is also coping well. Thank you God.


Good to see you had a wonderful time Shelly


Maggie it was so sad to hear about your caterpillars dying on the poison plants


Krisite it was good to see you here


Back to the Gastro specialist tomorrow, and we will hopefully know more .....

I just added it to the calendar, in pencil.... but that will be dependent on other things being on those dates. We'll see.

THANKS!

Well, actually "in pencil" isn't true.... since DH and I use our phone calendar so we can sync it to insure that someone is always available for Brock.

Hello everyone.

Shelly, such wonderful pics here & on FB about the wedding - the story about the butterfly is sacred. How incredible.

Barb is right, I am struggling. Saw a Homeopathic LPN today, reviewed dietary modifications and supplements to help my body make more of its own serratonin. Bottom line: these are just hard weeks and there's nothing else to do but get through them. I will, then I think it will be less work for ordinary life. Every simple thing takes so much energy. I know that I am battling depression. I'll win.

I keep all of you in my prayers. Even though I'm not up to date on the specifics of your lives, God hardly needs ME to tell HIM what you need haha.

~Peace.

The visit to Gastro clinic did not give good news - the big C was confirmed by the biopsies, and because of DH's general poor health, the only treatment is palliative . He is struggling - I had seen it coming as I had picked up more nuances from the talks with the Dr's, and having a bit of a medical background - his deafness does not help in these situations...

i covet your prayers

Good Morning Fellow Stamp Addicts!






Maxine, I am so sorry the news was not good. I want to cry for you - instead I'll cry out to the One who knows your need and will also provide the courage to walk the journey. (((HUGS)))

Darlene, it's always good to see you pop in. I hurt for you, too... and will keep on praying for you! Love ya!

Kristie, that WAS smart of them to carry the records, wasn't it? I had the same thought.

Barb, hmmmmm.... snow, wind, ice. Maybe I should exercise my eraser now.

I cannot believe how quickly the past 5 days have gone. DH has been having a good time away (I'm glad; he doesn't normally travel well unless I'm with him)... and I've been busy here at home. Whittled some things on that To Do List (still have a couple to do today) and took a trunk load of stuff to the thrift store. I have also managed to make 33 cards (so far) since he's been gone. BTW, he gets home this evening... and Brock and I will be glad to see him. Brock is looking pretty bushy and needs his father. I'm just sayin' - this mom is NOT good at shaving whiskers. For those who don't know, Brock is very capable of taking care of all his personal needs - except shaving. We've tried and tried to teach him, but all he manages to do is hold the razor in one spot (often his lips) because he loves the feel of the blades moving against his skin.

Maxine, I am so sorry for the news you and DH received. I will be keeping you both close to my heart and in my prayers.

Jeanette - how many cards do you make in a year? Do you keep track? Not sure how long your DH has been away but I am awestruck at you making 33 cards, in addition to everything else you do!

We have no internet in the office today. So no office email, no researching anything (sales, available properties and such). I am going through boxes of papers to recycle or shred before our move next month. At least I can be slightly productive!

Default Hi!

Oh Maxine, I am so sorry to hear this heartbreaking news. My heart goes out to you- will be keeping you in prayers. Big HUGS too! Prayers of Thanksgiving for your cousin- very good news for her!

Darlene- keeping you in prayers as well. I cannot imagine how hard it is for you, and admire you greatly for your faith in God to show you the way! God Bless you! and, {BIG HUGS}


Jeanette- how on earth do you make that many cards in one week? Cute story about Brock. I am wicked with a razor, as in nick, nick, and bleeding..... I pray every time I have to shave a patient!


Kristi- I think that your days sounds great- my OCD skill is sorting : )


Barb, I will send a PM for Jan 21st. It would be fun to meet you both IRL, and maybe Jeanette too. Do you have a big yard to mow? I never mow the lawn, hubby does it. He has a push mower- old fashion rotary Fiscars- it is not too easy to push.....


Maggie- loving the pic of the butterflies on FB- that is sooo cool!


Ran my Mom to dermatologist today- she has eczema which is all inflamed. And, she picks at it to remove the dead skin, which sometimes aggravates it.


Tomorrow, Mom will go to adult day care and I am going to have a shot in my lower back. It is supposed to calm the nerve more than do anything for pain (which I just have a touch of- nerve med calms pain so far). Then we have girls nite out and boys nite out..... for dinner. (Yeah, no cooking).


Waving hello to anyone I missed.


Shelly

Good Morning Fellow Stamp Addicts!





Barb, my day yesterday was good - well all except for that nearly-catching-the-vacuum-on-fire- thing. I hope your day was good, too!

Kristie, I don't keep track so I don't have any idea how many cards I make in a year. It would be interesting to know. Maybe I'll track it in 2017... maybe!

Shelly, I am afraid to use a blade-type razor on Brock, but DH almost always has to use one to clean him up good when I've been shaving him for a few days. Like last night. But thankfully Bushman is no more. We normally use an electric razor with Brock.

What's everybody up to today? I was going to go to card class (about an hour from my home, so I don't go often, but like going when I can). Unfortunately I got an email yesterday saying it has been rescheduled for Friday this week. I can't go on Friday.

But that's okay, I have things I need to do here at home anyway. Most important is figuring out Falliday! I signed up and thought I'd get emails telling me everything I'm supposed to do. Wrong. I've only gotten emails about the 3D projects, but I'm pretty sure there are cards to be made, too. So I am behind!!! Today I'm going to try to figure this out... and catch up!

Anyone want to point me in the right direction?

Good Morning Ladies. I have a luncheon today with the retired teachers from my school. It will be good to catch up with them.

Have a Wonderful Wednesday!

Shelly--it would be great to have you join us.

Here is a link to the Camp Stamp-in-Oga registration form for this Saturday. It will give you an idea of what we do at the morning and all day event:
Fall Oct 15th Stamp Camp-In-Oga Online Registration | Camp Stampinoga

Darlene and I will be staying all day on Saturday and helping with the set up on Friday night--but she is coming in on Thursday, so we could meet you any other time too. It would be great to meet you and get inky with you too!

Morning! I'm still around, just not around.

First of all - Maxine, my heart broke when I read your previous post. Please, please know that you and your entire family are in my prayers. I just wish we all lived closer so we could help out in some small way. Since that's not possible, at least know we're here for you and sending our love and prayers daily.

I haven't even tried to really catch up on posts once again. Shelly, I did see the wedding photos on FB and here and of course they're gorgeous. They look so in love as I'm sure they are. Hope your mom is ok now. Know that was scary.

Well, let's see.........I got slapped in the hospital last week. Woke up on Monday and couldn't walk. Zilch! Wasn't going to happen. Not good! As I've said, I've been having some problems with my back and yes, it finally died! Jim got me to the car and then straight to the hospital. I was there for five wonderful (LOL) days. You can really lose your humor fast being stuck in the hospital you know! Got out Saturday. It seems I have several slipped/bulging discs and of course one is pinching a nerve that goes from the back/butt/thigh/knee/and beyond. As I said, Not Good! I'm at home now and using Jim's walker. Can get from one room to the next VERY SLOWLY! Just can't stand, walk, sit, or lay down for very long at a time. Lots of pain of course but I'm trying so hard to lay off the pain pills and deal with this. I had an epidural at the hospital and think the plan is to have another one maybe next week. From there - who knows. The doctor is saying possible back surgery, and I'm screaming no! We'll have to wait and see as it's too hard to make those kinds of decisions right now.
Jim's making it and bless his heart, tried to come up to the hospital once a day to see me. He's extremely tired trying to just take care of himself and no way he can take care of me too. My daughter is coming this weekend to help me plan out some meal deals for him and see what we can do on that end, so that's good.
I never in my wildest dreams thought I'd be in this shape! Never! That's just not "me". But..........sometimes things happen and that's just the way they go I guess.

I'll get back over when I can to let you know how things are kicking (LOL) around here. Thinking about each and every one of you.

Hello Lynn... oh my! I didn't realize you'd been in the hospital. I'm glad you're home now, but sure wish you were doing better. Your situation sounds very painful. Gentle hugs and lots of love heading your way!

Maxine, that was very sweet of your DH.
I opened the box to look at everything, but haven't had a chance to actually play with my stuff. I have a couple projects going on. I've been working on an ATC swap for October and there is a lot of coloring going on. I'm almost done with them and hope to finish up this weekend so I can get started on my other projects for the month. I probably won't do the ATC swap for November since I'll be gone most of 2 weeks.
