Hopefully I will get back to stampin like I want to be...

Unbelievable the things happening to me in the past two weeks. On Thursday night, I had back pain so bad that I called the clinic and they told me to go to the hospital. (Since I have had a blood clot in my leg they wanted me checked out) After spending from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m at the hospital, I ended up finding out that I have a cyst on my ovary the size a tennis ball. So this next week, I have to have an ultrasound to see what is going on with that, plus my other blood tests for the blood clot. Not fun...

I am moving around much better today. Mark and I spent the weekend up north with his parents. We had a chance to go fishing and we caught about a dozen fish. We had a great time.

Working on other things today, but tomorrow I will be stamping away....... Can't wait.

On the road to recovery!!

Found out today I am not allowed to work for the rest of the week. What a bummer!!! My weekend plans may be cancelled too... I feel bad for Mark for he won't get to see his parents if we can't go. I know he feels guilty because of all of this.

Its still painful to walk, I guess this was a pretty big blood clot in my leg. I have to go for blood tests daily and still have the daily shots. This is so not fun...

I don't think my children realize how serious this could have been. They go on just like nothing has happened. This upsets me so much. They think that mom can still do everything she did before. Well I can't right now....

Well everyone take care.

Tuesday Morning

Hello everyone, looks like its going to be nice day here is Wisconsin today. I am taking a couple days away from posting to recoup after my short hospital stay this past weekend. Doctors found a blood clot in my leg over the weekend and decided to put me in the hospital as a precautionary measure. I can barely walk at the moment and will have lots of doctors appts coming up. So everyone take care and will be back up and running (i hope) by next week.

Well a quick post before work

I made these two birthday cards today. I thought they turned out cute.

This past weekend my boyfriend and I stopped at the scrapbooking store and I bought some new scrapbook paper. This is just one of them I purchased. Mark had just as much fun at the scrapbook store as I did.

Happy Monday to all!

It's been a very busy weekend planning the 50th Wedding Anniversary Card Shower.
This week is starting to be busy and its only Monday. But I am going to take some time and do some stamping today. So hopefully later, I will have some cards to show.

Bye for now.

A very simple but cute card!!

Two Little Girls Reunited!!

My daugher, Kelli (on the right) and Karly (on the left) finally got to see each other this week. They haven't seen each other in quite some time. Both girls are 5 years old, see the difference in size. Kelli is about 6 months younger than Karly.

Well everyone had a good day. The rain held off. My daughter Kelli, got to play with Karly. They hadn't seen each other in a long time. Mark's mom loved the cards I made for her.

Today, I am working on my Gatorade shop. Going to get it sent out today. Not much else happening here. Hopefully I will get some stamping in before I go to work tonight.

Well it looks like it will be a rainy day here in Wisconsin. I wish it would not rain for my b/f sake. His parents are coming today to see their granddaughter. It has been almost 2 years since they have seen her. (I won't go into the details of why but everyone is excited.) They will be celebrating birthdays and Mother's Day today.

Later tonight, I will join them for dinner, then off to work I will go. (It's my day off and been asked to work tonight.) Oh well, I need the extra money.

Everyone have a wonderful day!
