RULES/GUIDELINES:

1. In order to join this swap, you must have 1000 posts or be a sister with us already in good standing, or have another swap member that will vouch for you. If you don't have these things, contact Rosita or myself and we will decide. We want new people to sign up and have fun in our swap, but since this is a 25.00 minimum each month for three months, we have to make sure everyone who participates will complete the swap! Thank you for understanding!

2. This swap will officially begin on April 1, 2013.

3. When sign-ups are closed (March 30) Rosita and I will send each participant the name and information of your LITTLE sister sometime on or before April 1

4. This swap has a MINIMUM of $25.00 each month. You are required to spend at least that amount EACH month on your swap partner for three months NOT INCLUDING SHIPPING COSTS! Please remember BEFORE joining that this swap requires THREE boxes to be shipped out to your one partner (one a month)

5. You would not put your name on the package you send out from your home or you could order directly from sb.com and tell them that the gift is for a secret sister swap and they will block out your name and information for you.

6. You can look up your partners profile to get some ideas of what to send. They have also been instructed to update their wish list.

7. You MUST check into this thread AT LEAST once a week as your real self and once a week as your alternate secret sister ID. Communication is vital in this swap because the purpose of this swap is to get to know your fellow swappers! You'll get more out of this swap the more you post, and your ss can get more ideas as to what to send you. I want all of us to have a wonderful time this round. Remember that everyone enjoys feeling spoiled and having someone in the swap make them feel special by leaving notes.

8. Secret sisters will end at the end of June...you should reveal who you are to your sister on that date here on this thread.

9. Never hesitate to pm Rosita or I if you have any questions, or need to know something specific from your SS.

10. Please mail your RAKS/gifts/cards out no later than: April 30, May 30 and June 30. Each package will always contain scrapbooking goodies but can also include other goodies as well!

11. Have fun, chat, share lo's, anything goes on this thread!

12. You must have at least 1000 posts in order to sign up. If you have fewer than that, Rosita and I will need to pre-approve you joining. If you have flaked on this swap or not followed the rules before, don't bother signing up.

13. To sign up, send me a PM with this information:

But really I don't love the secretive part myself...making new email addresses, logging in different names and not mailing from my home address...but the fun out weights all that

Still deciding if I'm playing or following next time.

Funny accent, really!!!! It's not my fault I say my words so fast you can't make out all the letters guess you just need to open up those ears a little more and concentrate on hearing them.

Ladies, I just got a message from Pink and she is in the hospital. She started with a bladder infection and it has spread into her kidney. I'm sure there's a medical jargan for it but she or Rachel would be better to ask about the particulars.

Pink just wanted me to inform you girls since she probably won't be on here for a little while. She says that once she starts feeling better she will come on here and let you know what's going on.

I just hope she feels better and stronger soon!!

That poor girl - the rest in hospital will be the only way to get better - I'm sure seven sprogs would keep her busy all day even if she felt really grim.

Lets hope they have her pumped full of antibiotics and on the mend soon.

Poor PInk, I put a card in the mail for her. I hope she realized how serious it was and went to the doctor asap. I wish I lived nearby so I could help with the kids and make some meals. Just the laundry has to be a full-time job.

I'm so tired this afternoon. The grand-daughters woke up during the night and couldn't get back to sleep, I think I fell asleep at about 5 and was up again at nine. Is it nap time yet?

Hi ladies! I appreciate all your thoughts and prayers. I'm still in the hospital and will be for a while.

Here is the full story (for short version, just don't read this version cause is anything but short!) Last Thursday night I started to feel bad. By Friday evening I was miserable enough to go to the emergency room. Saw one doctor who did a urine test and said I have a severe urinary tract/bladder infection. He gave me some antibiotics as well as pain medication and said if anything changed at all, I should call my doctor or come back to the hospital. So, on Saturday, my fever began staying up past the 103 no matter what I took. I was having such huge chills that my teeth chattered and my upper body still hurts from being stiff with cold.. I called my own doctor who was (of course) not the one on call but the one I talked to send me to emergency room again. Another doctor takes care of me this time was all put out that I didn't take all of the antibiotics (seven days worth) before coming back in. He was rude towards me and just acted like I was being a baby about this. I told him that I knew my own body, something was wrong and asked if he was going to help me or if I should just go to another hospital. He started ordering testswhich included several blood tests. He said the infection had moved to my kidneys and gave me a different antibiotic and additional pain medication and sent me home to get better.
Went home, took meds, and went to sleep then the phones began ringing...my phone was turned off, hubby was running a funeral but they were able to have answering service get him a message that his wife needed back at the hospital immediately! And guess which doctor was in some trouble and had to make all those calls?

My infection had moved beyond the organs and is directly in my blood. I never realized that anyone could be this sick and still live! If I wouldn't have gone in the second time, there wouldn't have been any blood cultures and I probably would be in a lot worse shape than I am now! I might have had to start seeing my husband professionally (at least I can still laugh!) :). I was allergic to one of the antibiotics and broke out in painful welts. I got thrush from the multiple antibiotics. I'm just a big hot mess...and I'm talking hot as in fever! :). But I feel some better every day so I'm appreciative of that!

Hubby and kids are being just amazing to me. Mackenzie works as a flower shop and the owner gave her keys to the shop so she could go in and make me a pretty pink basket of flowers complete with a little get well balloon. The flowers were in my room even before I was in my room!

I know I look as awful as i feel and to be honest, I don't care at all! One of my friends (the special education teacher) came to visit. She was so sweet and said "you told me you looked bad but you don't....you just look really really really really sick!" Ha!

Thank you again all your notes, encouragement and prayers! You ladies are so wonderful!



P.S. before I got this sick, hubby made a deal and I got my Tim Holtz markers! He was laughing today that this is all a huge ploy of mine to get me out of doing my part of the deal! Of COURSE, that's not in ANY WAY the case... Lol!

I couldnt really imagine you with a Librarian look, Rebecca - but its fun to describe it!

Who really takes naps during the day?

I sometimes think it would be a nice idea, but I just always seem to have too much to do!

I had a frantic day today despite it being Saturday. There is a conference on at our church this weekend, and I vounteered to help with teas and coffees at registration, so I set the alarm for 8am, pitched up early and found that there were more than enough people and they didnt need me!

I stayed for an hour, but had too much to fit into the day to stay any longer.

Went and did the supermarket shopping, then stopped off at a winestore to buy a very posh bottle of wine for 'laying down'. My son and I were invited to the 'Naming ceremony' for a baby of a friend of his, so we were both going. He wanted a guy gift for the little boy! One of my dd's godfathers bought her a bottle of port at her baptism for her to drink on her 18th - I think she actually left it until her 21st in the end!

Found a bottle, label and smart box to eplain how to store it for 18 years!

Then went for a manicure - nice nails again, but they took so long I was panicking about being ready for the church ceremony and told my son to go ahead and get there early. I arrived about 5 mins late, but it was ok. Ceremony was 2-3, then party food from 3-4, back to make pizza (home made pizza is a Saturday night tradition here as long as I will make it for everyone!).

So I only end up sitting down and relaxing by about 8pm.

I must work on my naps, I think!

Janie I don't think she signed out of it yet, just busy and hasn't gotten caught up in the last day or so there. I know she recently commented on Pink's hospital stay.
Typically we don't sign off of a thread until everyone has revealed and all gifts received.

Ah finally got some much needed sleep last night, in fact I would love to go back to sleep but I must get up from this computer and go workout. It has gotten cold here again, back to winter temps so my garage is going to be icy but that is where the eliptical machine is. I am sure I will warm up in no time LOL.

I forgot it was time for the new thread already, no wonder the other one was quiet.

For those who care to look, here are bridal shower photos!

Hi everyone!

It took me a minute or two to find the thread, but I couldnt bear not to chat along with y'all - so I hope its ok to be in the 'chatting section'! (Don't tell that librarian - I swear I'll be quiet if she gives me one of those Librarian Looks)!



Do I really have a Librarian Look??




If she does, she didn't see you in that dress that you did a page of a few years ago. You know the one I mean! You are the sexiest librarian I've ever seen!!!

TinaM, I'll have to check out your pics after work today.

Pink, it's so glad to see you getting back to your chipper self again. I'm so happy and relieved that you're feeling better. I can actually make sense of your posts. LOL!!!

I had such a great weekend. We went to the biker rally on Saturday morning. We only stayed for a couple of hours. It was so hot out there. We saw one round of the coleslaw wrestling and a few minutes of the wet tshirt contest.

Saturday evening we had everyone over for chili. I made a huge pot of it. Dane,Bree and the grands, Jarrod, Teresa and the grands, my sister and nephew, also Michelle and one of the neighbors and her little boy were here. It was great fun. Then I watched all the grands while the adults went out for awhile. Drake is getting so darn cute. When he says 'yes' he says it as 'yays'. I had to keep asking him random questions just to hear him say 'yays'. LOL!! It was cracking me up.

Yesterday I spent several hours cleaning up after the girls were playing house in the den and the boys were eating popcorn in the living room while watching movies. Then Michelle came by to play cards. She surprised me with lunch for California Pizza kitchen. Have you ever had their Avocado Club egg rolls? HEAVEN!!!! Then right when she was leaving John surprise me by coming back over and we took the bike to Wing Shack where they were celebrating St. Patrick's day. We had corned beef and cabbage, and shephard's pie. It was so good.

Now I'm off to work. I'll see you ladies later.

I'm breaking in the new cookie sheets and scooper I got (boy it's so much easier than using a spoon!), along with the new double timer I got. and a new chocolate chip cookie recipe - I was supposed to get butter-flavored crisco sticks but I got regular by mistake, let's see how these things taste.

I may have undercooked the first batch a wee bit, but they did come out pretty yummy!

I picked up my dress from the tailor this morning (removing the tacky flowers on it and stitching up the neckline) on the way to work, so I showed everyone at the office and they loved it.

Several of my friends commented on what a trip my mother was, how we're so alike with some mannerisms, but so different in other ways. one friend said "the apple may not fall far from the tree, but thankfully this one rolled" lol!

oh, and did I mention that my former roommate/friend of 15 years, FORGOT about my shower on Saturday?! I kid you not. The shower was 2-5, and at 4 pm I got a text saying "sorry I wasn't at your shower. No real excuse other than being a scatter brain"! the irony is, she would go ape if someone said they'd do something, and didn't do it.

I didn't think of it at the time, she probably thought the shower was already over.

I am sorry that happened.
I tend to get busy in things and lose track of time, never totally forgotten anything important tho. I now have a calendar on my phone and reminds me 15 minutes before an appointment. LOVE IT!

That's too bad about your friend Tina. By the time she realized it at 4 it was probably too late to get dressed and get there before it was over. I can't wait to see the altered dress. I wouldn't be able to trust myself with those cookies.

So good morning everyone.

I'm off today so I'm trying to decide if I should work in my yard or scrap. My yard really needs to be mowed.

Hi all. I tell you something - my new job may not be paid as well as the old one (although the pay is still pretty good), but the hours are fan-flipping-tastic! I arrive on time, I go home on time (mostly) and I can easily fit the work in the time available.

Who could ask for anything more?!

Tonight I spoke to dh (hes in Denmark this week) and said - I may stop being ambitious unless something falls in my lap, cos this job is fun, a challenge, lots to do, and I'm enjoying it. Can we cope with a little less money.

He said yes!
