Yay - I have had some craft therapy - almost as good as being in church this morning worshiping, and the friendships and fellowship there

The teens decamped this morning - not that they were a trouble at all... they were bought home, slept, ate and out again


DD and family have a friend doing some landscaping using a digger, at the back of their place - so have had numerous photos sent through, but on the phone and I am having difficulty trying to save them from the app and post one here pf DGS 'driving' the digger!!


Better go and make a cuppa - waving to you all from a wet down under

Sending sunshine to those that are still in 'winter' mode!

Shelly, any news on the computer yet? Hopefully it's there and you're setting up shop! It's amazing how we've become so dependent in every way - jobs, creative play, and more!

I think I got blogger figured out - something is off with the configurations. And just in time - tomorrow starts the HUGE release, then the week after so it is going to be a daily whopping of cards. And all the cards that didn't get posted will be pushed back

Maxine - what is it about teenagers that eat and eat and ..... eat! LOL!
Sounds like a fun crowd! Glad you had nice services! I went last night, as I knew today would be impossible. dh is working on my car again and it's on it's 'last tire' so to speak. We can't afford a new one or another monthly payment on a new anything, so we're *patching and praying* the SUV makes it to summer!

Waving to everyone!

Good Afternoon Ladies! It is a bright, sunny day here-however the temps are in the low 20"s. We had a fun time at Trivia last night and our team even won! The questions were very hard as we only had 33 points, out of a total of 80! AND, yes, that was the winning score! Today is game day, Packers versus Cowboys--Go Pack Go! We are dog-sitting Jasper for a few days as his owner is in Arizona with her daughter, starting a semester at a new college.

I hope you are all having a wonderful Sunday!

Default Hi

I am back, Mom is unpacked and just like she never left.

My computer did not come back, and I am still having to get on hubby's. Little bits at a time...but IF I have to upload pics, I am not sure HOW I will do it on here..... Little one has my watermark on her computer from the past few weeks, but she is gone now. Guess I will figure that out......


Maxine- those high school kids sure do have a huge appetite! What are you doing with a digger in your backyard? Hope you are taking care of yourself my dear!


Kelly- hoping the car repairs go well! Everything is on You Tube now- even 'How to's" for car repairs. My brother fixed something in his car last month - I was shocked he could do it!


Barb- looks like there is a warm up coming this way! Yahoo! We cannot forget there will prob be cold and snow to come yet.....


Waving hello to all : )


Shelly

Hi girls,

Shelly the digger was in DD's back yard

This is a call for prayers please -
DH has gone down rapidly the last few days and we are trying to get the pain under control - second change of meds in four days today. It's not helping that I am not sleeping well and have been busy all day it feels, so am super tired and feeling stressed.
Hugs to you all

Good Morning Fellow Stamp Addicts!






I hope you are all doing well. Because I've been gone a week... I'm way behind in the threads. I'm not going to read to catch up, I'm sorry. Please let me know if I missed anything important.

Leaving a trail of friendly (((HUGS)))

Good Morning--Happy Monday and Martin Luther King Day!



How about the Packer game yesterday? It came down to a 50+ yard field goal with time expiring for the win--after the Packers had a 18 point lead in the second quarter. It was a great day--and a fantastic Win. Onto Atlanta next Sunday! It is an icy day here and I am so glad I do not need to go anywhere as it is a "get inky all day in the stamp room" kind of day! I hope you have a great day and a wonderful start to a new week!

Good Morning Ladies! I hope you had a good Monday, even it is was a Monday.......... Some of the roads are still a bit icy here and waiting for the sun to come up to help. We are to be in the 40's today and for the rest of the week. I did spend quite a bit of time in the stamp room yesterday and will complete a swap this morning. I then have card challenges to do for Camp Stamp-in-Oga on Saturday. I am so excited as Darlene is flying in from NH on Thursday to spend a few days here and we are also meeting LJ and Terry at camp on Saturday!!!!! We are all stay all day, into the night and I hope we actually get some stamping done, instead of chatting the entire time. Darlene and I "have" to stop at the Gina K store on the way home from the airport!

Have a Terrific Tuesday

Oh Barb - how wonderful that Darlene will be there - give her a hug from me, please.

Off to the eye clinci today - that means travel.....


DH seems a lot better on the 'big gun' pain relief, thankfully

Good Morning Fellow Stamp Addicts!





I'm so sorry I never showed up yesterday - I spent most of the day in bed. Standing - even sitting up - resulted in bouts of dizziness and near passing out, so I decided a day in bed was more important than anything else. Silly allergies settled in my left inner ear - while my right one is completely clear. This is wrecking havoc on my balance. But this will pass and I'll be good as new soon, I'm sure. Today so far is much better than yesterday was.

Maxine, I think Barb needs to include all of us (virtually) in a group hug with Darlene, don't you?

Maxine, my heart aches for you. I do hope that you are able to get some rest in the midst of all you are doing for your dh. I'm hoping your travels went well. Hugs, dear friend!

Has anyone heard from Lynn lately? She is missed

Jeanette, feel better ........ 2 of my 4 kids have horrible seasonal allergies, so I'm understanding your discomfort!

Barb - you are the funnest person I know! ALways on the go, go, go and always somewhere fun! Have a great time visiting with Darlene and your stamp club, girls time!

Off to distribute tshirts and hoodies at the jr high school - YAY!

Good Evening Ladies! I was not online in the morning as I headed out of town to go to the funeral of a good friend's mom. She turned 90 last summer, was a grade school music teacher and a sweet lady. It was a nice service. When I got home, I spent some time in the stamp room getting things together for camp on Saturday. I am picking up Darlene at the airport tomorrow morning and then we get to play all day--shopping at LSS is included!

Have a good evening and a good day as I am not sure if I will be online tomorrow or not!

Woo Hoo! Maxine, it's exciting to hear Shelly is the big winner... thanks for letting us know! CONGRATULATIONS, Shelly!

Kelly, thanks! I am feeling much better than I was.

YAY! It's so good to see you, Lynn! And you're just in time for the ((((GROUP HUG)))).... we've all instructed Barb to give Darlene a great big hug from all of us!

Barb, I know I don't need to tell you to have a great day today - oh how wonderful it will be! Enjoy!

Well, I managed to get a lot accomplished yesterday... still have a lot to do, but all but the village and two trees are down and packed away here at the house. And the laundry is finished. But aye yi yi! This house is filthy!!! (Oh, and I need to buy groceries, work on DT stuff, and take down the trees at DH's office.)

Leaving a trail of (((HUGS))) and Merriment

Hello my friends! Barb has been catching me up a wee bit on the important things in your lives. Jeanette, so sorry to hear your battling the inner ear problems, those are brutal. I sure hope you improve quickly.

Maxine, prayers for hubby. (You both were in my prayers all during my time away but I should have been more in touch to let you know)


Lynn, how are you and Jim? {Hugs}


Waving to all of you from not-so-cold Wisconsin!

I sighed and thanked God that at least I got the kids to school and not the other way around - got rides, car 'fixed' - sort of. We're putting a band-aid on something that needs a cast ..... but baby steps.

And in the midst my daughter came out of her room crying that the dr called her and said come in. RIGHT NOW. I'll be waiting. We did - in her car - and he was concerned about her bloodwork and numbers and thought it pointed to 'severe kidney issues' and sent her to a specialist. He saw her as well - looked over the paperwork and tests and labs and he said he was confident that it's a watch and wait. Whew - I'll take that!

So last night, I just took the cork off my dinner. YES. CORK. LOL.
That's a Riley stamp, by the way! I poured myself a glass of wine and just contemplated how after all the joking about Mondays I hear, I finally GOT it!

Today, it's raining - meh. We're back to sharing a car. Not sur what we'll do about getting a new one. Mine is 12 years old and not worth more than parts. We'll need to get a new one but that's definitely NOT in the budget. Lots of thunking to do!

((((((((((( So how 'bout a group hug! )))))))))))))
Sorry about the car situation Kelly. I hope somehow you can work that out.

What a scare for your DD. I hope that the watch and wait leads to nothing.

I have no idea what all's been going on but I just saw that Darlene is visiting with Barb? Hope you both have fun.
I'm back and feel almost human again......almost. Got moved and am still working on the house. I finally got the last room (craft room) pretty much unpacked today. Everything is still a mess back there but at least it's out of the boxes. That's a big plus for me......and right in the middle I decided to make a card! Yikes! Got the image colored, found the paper - and then couldn't find the paper cutter. LOL! Finally found it today so all is well I guess.
We're doing ok. Since the move I had the super crud (bronchitis) and now Jim has it but is full of meds and is doing better. Rambo still isn't real sure about where he is and is having a few problems - like deciding the house is his favorite potty now and ripping into the door when we left him for about an hour the other day. Not good!
I started PT last week finally and thought I'd died. Went a lot better this week though. Not sure how long I'll be going. So far, the back is holding up pretty good. Just can't last for very long at whatever I'm doing.
Texas weather has been wonderful - and even had to turn on the AC last week for a couple of days!!!
Hope everyone is doing ok and I'll try to keep up better now.

baby hasn't been sleeping... going down around 3-4am. so i'm DYING this week. especially today, when i had a 8am meeting... i got to sleep from about 4-7 and can't wait until my kids go to bed (20 minutes... i'm counting down!!) and will pass out with them. my mom can watch the baby for a couple hours!! haha!!


ttyl, sending hugs!!
Congrats Kel! That's fabulous that you will be graduating 1 1/2 years ahead of when you were expecting to.

I've been contemplating taking a course to become a certified genealogist. I was going to start this month, but decided that I needed to figure out my schedule and see if I could do the course in addition to working on my stamping. The next class starts May 9 and I'm going to see about signing up for the class then.

We had off on Monday. It was a new holiday for us this year. Yeah! It was so nice to be off. I spent most of the day reorganizing my craft closet. I didn't get rid of anything, but rearranged stuff that I can reach easier. I've also been coloring images and got 2 of the cards made. Still have a few more to work on.

I then have card challenges to do for Camp Stamp-in-Oga on Saturday. I am so excited as Darlene is flying in from NH on Thursday to spend a few days here and we are also meeting LJ and Terry at camp on Saturday!!!!! We are all stay all day, into the night and I hope we actually get some stamping done, instead of chatting the entire time. Darlene and I "have" to stop at the Gina K store on the way home from the airport!

Have a Terrific Tuesday
Have a great time with Darlene. Give her a HUGE HUG from me!

Silly allergies settled in my left inner ear - while my right one is completely clear. This is wrecking havoc on my balance. But this will pass and I'll be good as new soon, I'm sure. Today so far is much better than yesterday was.

Maxine, I think Barb needs to include all of us (virtually) in a group hug with Darlene, don't you?


Leaving a trail of friendly (((HUGS)))
So sorry about the vertigo Jeanette. Are you taking some allergy meds for it.

Exactly!

Maxine, prayers for hubby. (You both were in my prayers all during my time away but I should have been more in touch to let you know)

Lynn, how are you and Jim? {Hugs}

Waving to all of you from not-so-cold Wisconsin!
So nice to see you here Darlene. Have a great time with Barb. Sending HUGS!

I'm back and feel almost human again......almost. Got moved and am still working on the house. I finally got the last room (craft room) pretty much unpacked today. Everything is still a mess back there but at least it's out of the boxes. That's a big plus for me......and right in the middle I decided to make a card! Yikes! Got the image colored, found the paper - and then couldn't find the paper cutter. LOL! Finally found it today so all is well I guess.
We're doing ok. Since the move I had the super crud (bronchitis) and now Jim has it but is full of meds and is doing better. Rambo still isn't real sure about where he is and is having a few problems - like deciding the house is his favorite potty now and ripping into the door when we left him for about an hour the other day. Not good!
I started PT last week finally and thought I'd died. Went a lot better this week though. Not sure how long I'll be going. So far, the back is holding up pretty good. Just can't last for very long at whatever I'm doing.
Texas weather has been wonderful - and even had to turn on the AC last week for a couple of days!!!
Hope everyone is doing ok and I'll try to keep up better now.
Good to hear from you Lynn. Poor Rambo, I'm sure he's all confused about where he is and what to do when you are gone. He probably feels abandoned since he's in a new place and doesn't yet know that it's the same as the other place and that you'll be back.

Good luck with the PT. What part of Texas are you in now? You need to give us your new address.

Well, all caught up. Work has been pretty busy with the boss there every day. I've been working on arbitration notebooks for a 2-week arbitration in February. There was some talk of it getting rescheduled until after April, but the Panel ruled for it to go forward. Thank goodness. That would have had my boss in the office for 2 weeks with nothing on the calendar.

Not much else going on. I have been working in my stamp room. I got 5 images colored up and made up 2 cards last night. I have 3 more to finish and I have another card that I need to get put together.

According to the weather this morning I was going to spend the afternoon in the studio - yeah right!! After we got in from town I did the ironing, then after lunch went out to the garden, and did not come back in for nearly two hours... it is supposed to rain again tomorrow, so maybe I will get two afternoons there this weekend

Great to hear from Lynn - poor Rambo, is he getting old and confused? Good to hear you have survived PT and are now improving Lynn.


Hugs and waves from down under to you all

Yay - my parcel from Amazon has just arrived a week early - nothing exciting, but welcome none the less!! Fun foam. 2 embossing folders, Masking paper and Stick-it paper for die cuts - I am sick of applying glues with a toothpick

Just sharing the pleasure from down under

Good Morning Fellow Stamp Addicts!






Maggie, thank you for catching up... because you helped me to see things I missed during the time I was gone.

Maxine, I'm so sorry DH is failing fast and required additional med changes. That has to be so hard for both of you!

Lynn, it's good to hear from you and to know you're moved and unpacked. Poor Rambo, though.... seems he's a bit traumatized!

Darlene, I know you and Barb are having a GREAT time. Did you see Maxine waving at you? I was the one standing there beside her waving frantically along with her!

Kel, YAY for being on track for early graduation!

Kelly, wow! Congratulations!

Waving to everyone else as I dash along... so much to do; so little time.


Leaving a trail of (((HUGS))) and Merriment

Good Morning Ladies--Happy Friday! It is a rainy, foggy morning again in Wisconsin--I think it has been the same all week and will continue until early next week. Temps are in the 40's and it might hit 50 tomorrow--but it would be great to see the sun!!!

Darlene is here and we had a great day yesterday! We stopped at a coffee shop, shopped at Gina K and Creative Pals and then had lunch at Stir Crazy. We hung out here in the afternoon and evening--relaxing as Darlene was up very, very early--she said zero dark thirty! Today we will get our things ready for Camp tomorrow and we will head over at 4:30 to help get everything set up and ready, including all of the rummage items. I am taking a few boxes of items over and hope to sell lots! But, I am sure I will buy too as I get first look tonight............ I will take pictures tomorrow with Terry and LJ to post!

Have a Fantastic Friday!

Wait ........... WHAT?! I did? Oh, I must go look ........ is it on their blog? Thanks for letting me know, I am clueless - what a nice thing to read!
AND I got my Starbucks - wow, this morning is a win/win in happy moments! Thanks for letting me know, my friend!

I have to get in gear and finished up some older cards that were colored, not assembled. LOL. I stopped for a bit and I worked on a card last night and HATE - HATE - HATE it - so disappointed when that happens. And then I to post it - ugh. Can't like them all, I suppose.

Lynn, I dind't know you were moving?!!!!!!! I must miss a lot of things. Well, welcome to your new home! I'm thinking you have a new address - can you PM it to me? I'll make the changes in my files. Poor Rambo - hopefully you will all acclimate and you don't have to be the laundry stamper anymore!

Darlene and Barb - I hope this weekend is wonderful! Enjoy, ladies! Take some pics! ♥

Waving to all ........
*Sharing sunshine!*

Hello!!Lynn, hope that you take it easy with the move, don't re-injure yourself. Glad to hear you squeezed in some card making! Poor Rambo. Amanda'so dog had some of the same issues when she came to live with me. But she's better now. Hopefully Rambo adjusts soon.


Feeling better yet Jeanette?


Kelly, what a Monday you Had! I just saw your post. Here's wishing for a better week ahead.


Maxine, how are you both doing? Hubby improving? Prayers continue.


Maggie, you are such a good support of all of us and of this thread too? Thanks for making it welcoming & as Jeanette remarked, helpful for getting updatesome. Bless you!
