  • Megan Ann Said:
Hi ladies! I'm seriously doing ok today, but my days have been up and down....Kayla broke up with me the day after Christmas. There is no explanation. As much as I thought things wouldn't work out a month ago, the last 3 weeks things had been improving. I had been happy for the last 3 weeks. Things were going very well! Then BAM! She just dropped this bomb--NO WARNING! So that was crushing. UGH! I couldn't believe it. My heart was completely crushed. I'm not over it (obviously) but after spending the last 2 days in bed, I am finally feeling ok enough to not sleep all day! I hope you all are doing well!





I'm so sorry! love hurts in the worst way, but it will get better (not what you want to read right now, I know), one door has closed and another will open when it's ready to!! Always know you have a great family here for you no matter what!!!

I have not mailed put my own December box yet to my wonderful little sister Dora! But it is finally all packed and will go out priority mail on Monday, along with several other packages I should have mailed out ages ago! I have kept on close contact with my sister though so she knows. But I am just as guilty at bring late this time...I've had a very bad month, although that is no excuse at all.

Anyway, Sherri, your sister said she sent out your nov. dec. box today.

Trisha, your final package from your big sis goes out Monday.

I know Rebecca and I will be here till the last person receives! Just stay on this thread. I have instant emails each time a post is made. So, we will kee track! No worries!

Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and are going to have a wonderful New Year!

Hi ladies, did you have a good weekend?

My holiday company left this morning and then I went over to my bff to help her get ready for her soon to be 3 year olds party. He was a New Years Day baby.

My goal for 2013 is to be more organized so I've just cleaned out my storage room. Eliminated 4 large rubbermade containers and several boxes. Even if it all I get done this year, it will be more than last year-LOL

Hi all - Happy New Year!

Sorry to hear your news Megan - even if you felt it had been on the cards for a while - its still hard to have your heart broken. But its a New Year for you too - look forward to all it holds!

I've hardly been on here - my mum is very poorly and I have been driving up and down the UK to see her. My brother flew in from Australia on - well just after midnight on New Year's Day - he saw the fireworks as he drove here! - and he is off to see her today, which means we all share the load a little.

no package today, but I know it's coming. I've been promised.

So, here's how I spent today. I had a sleep study done a month ago, and today they checked the memory chip in my machine at the doctor's office to see how it's going.

Well, during the study a month ago the guy woke me up and said I had to put the cpap on, as I was failing the study miserably. I quit breathing or NEARLY quit breathing 94 times an hour. HELLO! No wonder I wasn't feeling rested! NEVER got a good night's sleep.

So today my machine told them that I have used my machine 30 of the last 30 days. I use it on average 7 hours and 20 minutes. And, I am having 7 episodes an hour. DOWN FROM 94!!!! HOLY buckets. I am close enough now to be in the normal range, and actually don't have to nap every afternoon or fall asleep at my scrap table.

So that's my story today! No box, but I got good news.

Dora

Of course dear, I know how life happens. It will be good to get now since my new years resolution was to slow down on scrappy purchases. I am having withdrawals so this goodie box will ease those.

Been kicking around an idea for a mini book and the Prima build a book I think is going to be perfect for it.

Sherri, your day brightener would probably help me as well. Having a lousy week, and just want it to end.

I keep telling myself that Kimberly is going to make my world a better place, if I just hang on....

I've spent so much time in my scrap room making things for various swaps, it's my "Happy Place" these days. And no other place is giving me that. I'm thinking I need to get my S.A.D. light out, get some vitamin D flowing.....

YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My box from my very special secret sister Kimberly came!!!!!!

Kimberly....seriously....it's amazing. And get this. I have a 4" stack of My Mind's Eye paper. It's my favorite by far, the one I know I can turn to to match ANY color in my photos. And you sent me another inch of it!!!!!!!!!! And not one, nope, not one duplicate of what I have!!!!!!!!!!!I really do need to hire you to shop paper for me.

I love every single thing. I am so happy now, I can spend tonight up in my little haven organizing. Oh, and did I mention that due to you I now need a bigger embellishment tote? Yes. I do. Thanks girlfriend! You made my day, once again!

This is where most of my paper went. Remember my yard sale last spring. The paper rack on the left was full of paper packs. Those aren't singe papers, they are whole packs. Some were brand new, never used. I got rid of that whole rack plus all the paper packs that hadn't been sold already to one lady. She bought the whole kit and caboodle for her granddaughter. The granddaughter was there and she was in tears. It was so sweet.
