Hi Girls,
Linny, I am so happy Camille got her card. I forgot President's Day, otherwise, she would have got it on her Bday. I hope she liked it.
I've been reading other threads and am so confused, I don't know what I'm writing on what thread. Got a little excited about the scrapbook cruise, country problems, money and taxes.. Coffee/swap, and etc..
Time for an espresso and hitting up the scraproom until about oh, I don't know, 4 - 5 AM!!!!!!!!!
Long night of working and this is now my time to relax and create!
Hope everyone is doing well. Keep warm!
Hugs to all of you!!!!!!!!!!1

Morning Ladies,

Sorry to be MIA, it's been pretty hectic this week. I caught up with everyone's posts and my goodness a lot has happened around here.

Bren your get together for the Dallas expo sounds great. Wish I could join you all, it would be a blast! How's dad doing?
Jolene I must have missed something, what cruise?
Linny sending out a belated to Camile today. So sorry to hear your still suffering with so much chronic pain. I am so suspicious that you're experiencing scar tissue build up from your surgeries. I know first hand how painful it is. Please check it out on Google and consider asking your Dr. about it.
Stephanie congrats on passing your tests!
Martica so very glad your safe and sound! What a scary time in the neighborhood.
Yvonne so glad your finely getting some pain relief for you back problems. You've been suffering too long.
Lorna You are so sweet, thank you for checking in on me this week! So sorry I missed your call, Let's try and catch up again next week. I loved your Bible study post, absolutely words to live by! Had to save this one myself. Made me weep and ask forgiveness for myself too. TFS!

Well all my hard work is paying off. Hubby took me shopping for some new clothes yesterday as everything was just hanging off me. Fourteen months ago I was a 16, today I'm an 8!!! I'm so excited I can hardly see straight! I've only ever been this small one other time in my life and it was more than two decades ago. I'm headed to a family birthday celebration on Sunday and it will be the first time my friends and family will see me in something that fits. Looking forward to the celebrating this weekend!

Have a wonderful day my sweet friends. Bigs hugs and much love to all..

To all of my sisters in faith, I have a special prayer request for my little girl Ashley. She is potentially very sick and she has no medical insurance. We will know more next week. In the meantime, would you please keep her and her situation up in prayer. Thank you.

Dawna I'm lifting your sweet girl up in prayer that God's healing hands will lift her into His arms and heal her so she can serve her purpose in life.

xoxo

Good morning!

Dawna, sending prayers for Ashley.

I do have a great deal of scar tissue....and that part of my palm is very painful. But the wrist also hurts....can't wring any thing, open a jar, lift anything heavy and my fingers tingle if I hold a phone for too long. The smart arse dr said well it's a good excuse for your dh to wash the floors! I give up!

Rainy day in NY.....

Lorna your pastor is very wise and I have to admit to I am guilty of some of those things.

You don't have to feel shameful my dear friend for we all are a work in progress and we could be the most amazing Christian and there is still work in us to be done. I honestly feel when it comes to the Lord there is always room for improvement.

I am not perfect nor will i ever be perfect but I can most def say that I have came a long way from what I have been and getting to know you ladies and having a wonderful Christian friends is just a plus.

Lorna the difference between you and most people are you are trying to change and in my eyes that already makes you a better person.

Love you sorry it was so long

Linnny, every chance you get, massage the area where you scare tissue is. It'll help break it up. I had the same problem for awhile. Keep in mind that your hand will never be the same again but the carpal tunnel should improve. To this day, I can't hold up my three center fingers. I can't get my thumb to reach over to my baby finger anymore so instead, I hold down my pointer finger with my thumb and show three that way. You just gotta take the good with the bad.

Afternoon to all my lovely ladies. Heading out for my BIL's 50th birthday party. Hold me back, I'm in a wild mood....NOT.

Hey ladies!!!!

Deb, I've been massaging the scar tissue for months....it's just so frustrating. I have more pain than I ever had prior to surgery. And even the numbness! It must be my body 'cause two different drs operated on my hands!!!!! WTH!!!!!

Anyone following the Jodi Arias trial.....that is one wacky chica!!!!

And the guy that shot his gf 4 times through the bathroom door because he thought she was a prowler! Please!

The news is stranger and stranger every day.....

Oh, I spent a good part of the day with Vinny D'O!!!!! Love them repeats!!!!

Morning Sweet Ladies,

Java is on! I got four hours sleep last night! Yeah! I've been desperate to get more than 1 1/2 to 3 hrs. in this week. Still trying to get my sleep regulated.

Thank you for lifting my little girl Ashley and her medical situation up in prayer. I appreciate it more than you will ever know.

We're headed over to my daughter's house today for a 'Surprise" B-Day party for my SIL. He turns 40 today! I loved being 40. Old enough to have your stuff together and young enough to enjoy everything too. I do remember nearly working my self to death though. So glad those years are behind me and I'm enjoying retirement now.

Linny, please don't give up on your hand! And don't quit complaining to your Dr's either. A little story: After my accident, my left arm was an internal spaghetti factory. The elbow was dislocated and all my nerves, muscles and tendons were stripped away from the bones. The Dr.'s told me I suffered and 'internal amputation.' During the healing process, it took more than a year of complaining before the Dr.'s finely 'believed' that I was still in trouble. I could have punched them all in the face for making me wait so long, but I guess we actually need that long before they will go in and remove the scar tissue build up. They got all the scar tissue released with each surgery, but my body wouldn't cooperate and it kept recurring! It's highly unusual, but it took them four exploratory surgeries over 6 years, before my body finely healed properly. I still have to take pain medication but it's finely under control. It's been 11 years since the accident, but lack of strength is why I hired my personal trainer last year. Up until then, I couldn't open jars, doors, cook, clean or even wash my own hair. I learned through all the pain management classes how to pace myself throughout a day. But just a year ago, I didn't have enough strength to shower and go someplace in the same day. With the help of my personal trainer, I've come a long way baby! So hang in there, keep fighting the good fight and DON"T EVER GIVE UP!

Off to leave some gallery loves ...

Dawna, You continue to amaze and inspire me. You have went thru so much and taken control to turn it around.
Well ladies I am watching LMN. There is a movie on called TheJoneses. It is showing me why I have never needed to be like The Joneses. Thank You Lord for guiding me.
