Good morning all. I am at home and finally got online. Ugh! So glad I tried to "fix" this computer. Will never be the same. Anyhow, hope everyone has a great week end. Im still procrastinating for the SBS project. Kick my butt someone!!!!! Going to trainer and then to hairdresser to get beautified, cut and dyed.

Morning All!!! TGIF I wholeheartedly agree Cindy!!! Although my weekend is not relaxing LOL I am finally going to tackle the scary place (daughters room with the 2 feet deep layer of toys), soccer, and hopefully making a card for kimme's challenge!!!!

Have a blast DM that is going to be a fun trip and remember kids may think someone is being injured or attacked if you scream so watch what you yell out LOL

Hello!!! Hope everyone is having a great day so far! DH left for OC this morning with the guys...they'll be gone all weekend for bike week.

Anyone check out the new stamp company called Totally Stampalicious? I saw the banner here on SCS. They only have 4 sets right now but I HAD to have the motorcycle set! Here's the link if you're interested... http://www.totallystampalicious.com/home.html
They're based out of Canada.

Thanks Tracy! I haven't received mine yet, does this mean you have a card in this issue as well?! That would be so fantastic!

Congrats Amanda!

How is everyone doing? DH and I went to VA for his appointment (not at the main facility) and drove back to the main facility (the VA hospital) and walked down to the Lexington Market. That place is a riot! So many places to choose from to eat, lots of vendors selling fresh raw foods and there was also live music.

Came home and had a croupy fit, then took a much needed nap. Now to finish off the project I started yesterday!

Hugs,

Loretta

Good morning!! I'm sitting her eating my nutritious breakfast- Berger Cookies and a Coke...sometimes it's fun to be home alone!

I have SO much stamping to get done while DH is gone...my pink ribbon card, a challenge card for my blog group, a card for the Bombshell hop on Wednesday PLUS getting my card designed and made for the Maryland City swap next Saturday. Plus I still need to do laundry and at least clean a little while he's gone! I DO need to make it LOOK like I did something!

Have a fabulous weekend! Looks to be a beautiful one!

Congrats, all, who had another card published

Tracy, love your card!! She looks the way I feel!!! DH is so sick now, and he has shared. I hate when he shares. That is a super cute stamp. The challange cards are all so nice. Still need to post mine...Still need to come up with a card for NEXT weekend!! How did it get here so fast!?!?!? I have visions, but they turn into nightmares...I think I would rather have nightmares that give me visions - ??!!

Enjoy your day - it is gorgeous out. I have to take dd in search of a new binder. Her 3" one broke the first week. Yesterday, it threw up all her papers, in 1st block...This carrying everything around all day is for the birds!

Great card, Tracy! Love that DP!! Boy, it's getting tougher and tougher to pick a 'winner'! I haven't even made my card, yet...after I get some more cleaning done I hope to get upstairs to stamp!

I still don't have my card designed for next week's SBS either so Rose, Mary and Cherie, you are not alone! I hope to get it done tomorrow, we have a wedding to go to here in an hour so probably won't get anything done on it tonight.

Good Luck Tracy! You're more ahead than am I. I have no clue *still* as to what I'll make for next Saturday.

I met a lcoal girl, (hobbyaholic) Her name is April. She is a real joy. We had a very nice time stamping together and chatting. I'm looking forward to having her join our events!

She is fairly new to stamping and was impressed to see all of our cards in a publication. (I finally received my copy today!) We are hoping to make Queens Ink one day next week and maybe have lunch at Ram's head.

Speaking of which, it has been a while since we all got together, is any one up for lunch out maybe after the SBS? It would be great to coordinate something together.

I feel a bit better, but am still coughing. So ready to be over this so I can visit our neighbor's new born!

Chat at you guys soon! Stamping Hugs,

We really had a scare last night when we got home from the wedding. Rusty was very lethargic and wouldn't eat a thing, even ice cream which is one of his favorite things! He laid in the same spot on the kitchen floor all night, I couldn't get him up to go outside at all. We were really getting worried that he wouldn't make it through the night. I slept in the living room to be close by in case I heard him trying to get up. Finally, around 5:00 a.m. my dh got up which woke me up. Rusty was still in the same spot. I decided to get his leash out to see what would happen and low and behold the minute he saw that he was up on all fours, tail wagging, ready to go for a walk! LOL The big stinker! Of course it was still dark out so we just walked around the yard so he could go potty. I promised him we'd take a little walk when it got light out. He came in, ate good and is back to his old self again!

Kimme, is this what happened with Maggie too?

I slept in the living room to be close by in case I heard him trying to get up. Finally, around 5:00 a.m. my dh got up which woke me up. Rusty was still in the same spot. I decided to get his leash out to see what would happen and low and behold the minute he saw that he was up on all fours, tail wagging, ready to go for a walk! LOL The big stinker! Of course it was still dark out so we just walked around the yard so he could go potty. I promised him we'd take a little walk when it got light out. He came in, ate good and is back to his old self again!

Kimme, is this what happened with Maggie too?
Sh certainly had moments where she was very very lethargic and would barely lift her head. But then shortly after she would be fine. The thing with her was that she wasn't eating for a while. She lost 20 pounds from April to July. Her appetite had continually decreased and she was skin and bones. When she stopped eating dry food, we added water to make it softer, then we tried canned. She ate for a couple days and would stop again or the canned actually made her sick, that's when we finally took her to the vet. Until then we really couldn't say that there was anything specifically wrong. We had about a week with her after the diagnosis, but by that time her spleen was 3x's the size it should be and they were never quite sure if she possibly had a twisted intestine as well. They would have had to do an ultrasound and then would have needed surgery which she wasn't strong enough to have, so we never saw the point in the ultrasound. Her final day she was sick several times and may have had a small seizure. Because of the girls we just couldn't risk having her pass at the house, so we probably put her down a little sooner then some would have, but we were all at peace with the decision.

Here you can see her ribs. The girls had just fed her treats for the first time. She was calm enough I didn't fear that she would bite their entire arms off accidently:

This was the expression on her face that last day, she just was so very droopy not much energy or spark in her eyes. And no she was not allowed on the couch, but that day she knew it was ok. :

And here are she and Kerri holding hands. They really were best buds.

Kimme, she was such a beautiful dog! I love the pic of her and Kerri together! I'm so sorry you lost her much too early to this horrible disease. I have been reading so much about it this last week and found out that 60% of Goldens will die of cancer. What a staggering number! I found a wonderful GR Forum I've been visiting the past couple of days and everyone has been so supportive and comforting as most of them have lost one or more Goldens to cancer. Thanks for sharing your experience with Maggie, I'd much rather know what to expect so that I can be prepared to deal with it.

I just had to share this pic of Rusty and Zippy a couple of Christmases ago. They are best buds and I just found them laying together like this again yesterday.
