Hi Girls!! I think you gals are the BEST too!! I'm sorry if I've not been around much these past few days, just busy with my daughter's birthday, Valentine's day, and then My hubby's birthday right in a row! This weekend may be better.. we have some secret guests coming though! It's a surprise for hubby! His son's flying up from Georgia, and all his kids are gonna show up here tomorrow. This was a 'big birthday' and they wanted to share it with him. He'll be delighted!!

I'll catch up individually on Saturday, hopefully!

Melissa, I read your post about being on medical leave. Are you doing ok? Oh, I wanted to thank you for stopping by my blog too! I don't blog very regularly, but I am trying to update that a little more often.

I would love to have some time home, but I just started my latest job this past September. No paid vacation until at least September of this year . . . I'll probably use that for our family vacation. I think we are going back to Disney World this year. I just love that place, and it has been so much fun taking Sam. The magic seems to double when you are there with your kiddo.

Kell, big hugs coming your way! Those long days can be brutal. Sounds like a perfect excuse for a long hot soak in the tub.

I am now. I was off because I had emergency surgery in January. At that time, I found out I had endometriosis. I have a c-section-type incision on my abdomen and I'm about 5 weeks post-op, so I'm doing a lot better.

They weren't able to get all of the endometrial cells in the surgery, so my doctor put me into menopause for the next few months to try to kill off the remaining cells. The only reason I didn't go back to work sooner is because I was worried about the side effects of the depo lupron that causes the menopause, but so far it seems to be OK.

It gave me the chance to remember why I love being a SAHM. I hope that my husband and I can get ourselves back into a financial situation where I can do that again. I really am not wanting to work today. (Hence the reason I'm here on sb.com ! LOL!)

I am so mad.... I just wrote a huge post and pressed the back browser and lost it all

so to start all over again!!!

Bev you are on a roll with your lifts, nice work.. but why has one of them be disabled from embedding? was it naughty stuff??

Beth, warn your DH that using your craft room is definitely grounds for divorce!!!

Sherrise, hope your weekend goes well, I am off to your gallery in a minute to choose my lift, so many wonderful choice, how will i ever choose?


Laura, what a good idea of yours for me to soak in a bath full of bubbles, you know me so well!! :smile : What is your job now? you said you had just changed, I didn't realise that?

Mellissa, sorry to hear about your endometriosis. That can't be at all nice. i hope they manges to clear it completely.

it was at this point I lost my message because I was laughing at my computer trying to spell check.
The computer thinks endometriosis should be, cliometricians or econometricians or biometrics's or isometrically or econometrics's..... any of those you fancy instead???

Happy Friday to everyone then except Wendy, happy midweek to you.

I am off to a scrap tomorrow, and i have 22 vintage ATCs to make, I have prepared all the embellishments and will assemble them tomorrow. Do Sherrise lift and i have another Lo to do for another group and i entered " I love flowers" but couldn't find a BIG flower, so I might give that a miss.

I had endometriosis too but the doctors didn't realize it until I had my hysterectomy about 4 years ago. You will feel sooooo much better once you're completely healed!

Kelli...my DH already knows he's on borrowed time! Our dog knocked a table over and it landed on his laptop and broke the screen. He's waiting for bonus time in a few weeks to get another one. We moved into a new house last summer and he STILL has not finished his office. That will also be done at bonus time too or he'll be living in his truck! I'm not allowed to decorate "his room" and it's driving me nuts!

Melissa, Laura and Bev thanks for taking the time to go through my gallery and leave some love! Geeze y'all spent a bunch of time there! I'd love some contstructive criticism also...always looking to improve.
I'm hoping to get some pages done this weekend but I have a few other things to get done and we've got tickets to the ballet on Sunday. Perhaps I'll get a picture of my husband sleeping through it and have some goofy lo material! Need to get back to work Have a good afternoon!

Grrrrrrrrrr!! My internet has not been working well for the last two days.

I pulled out the cricut last night (couldn't resist) and WOW I love it! I made a little card for my friend:




Baby Boy Card


I was also contacted by srapbook art e-zine .. they want to publish my "bridal showers" and "me right now" layouts. I haven't been able to get my net working long enough to check it out yet.. I'm not sure if I wil go for it or not.

Hope you ladies have a great weekend - tommorrow is the start of my move so I may not be on too much for the next couple of weeks.

Great job on being selected for publication, maybe after your move you will feel more up to it.

Sweet little card, I am useless at making them!

Good luck with your move, we look forward to having you back.

You guys!!!

I have AWESOME news. Well... nothing to do with scrapping. But I got offered a new job at work today! It would go to a full-time position. I would work for a different boss. I would make THREE TIMES my current salary. AND I'd get to keep the school year schedule I currently have!

Life is so good for me today.

And CONGRATULATIONS to you, Chelsea, for the pub offer! That's AWESOME!

"Bev you are on a roll with your lifts, nice work.. but why has one of them be disabled from embedding? was it naughty stuff?? "

No, big deal. It just means the person didn't check the box to allow public embedding. You can still look it up the old way by the web address.

And, congrats to Chelsea and Melissa (and hope that helps you get better faster).

I'm hoping to get a lot of scrapping done tonight!

Wow! I've read stories of women who had it a long time and never knew. I was in so much pain that I couldn't stand it and I only had a fist-sized tumor. The thing that made it painful was where it was located, though. It was putting pressure on my bladder and other organs down there and it was irritating my abdominal cavity.

I'm glad you were able to catch it, though, even though it took a hysterectomy. I was lucky to only lose a fallopian tube and ovary. I can still have kids, as long as this depo lupron treatment works and takes care of the stray cells.

Anyhow, enough gabbing. I think I want to scrap some today. I've been feeling kind of lazy the past few days!
