I'm Such a Bad Blogger Lately

Just so you know I truly would love to have time to sit and blog, plus create cards. I'm going through crafting withdrawl here! Helping to get the house ready for our kids to move into is a bigger challenge than I expected it to be. (Not really but it seems to be going ever so slowly). I have worked so hard for the last 2 weeks that I have worn my resistence down AGAIN! and now have the flu! Can't seem to win in this household. LOL No happy medium anywhere. I was able to hang the border for our son's office yesterday, but that was it before I had to give it up and go home and back to bed. After I pick Miss V up at Pre-School today she and I will go over and I will see if I can clean the tape off the hardwood floors where the previous owners taped down rugs?????? I can say we are basically finished with the downstairs and are now working on the upstairs bedrooms and bath.

I truly wish I could find time to make cards and enter challenges, but with all that is going on, I am realizing I am not "superwoman" and right now my kids need help if they are going to be out of their apartment by the 31st. Please don't give up on me. I promise to be back as soon as I can.

Hugs to all of you

I was finally able to make at least one card this week. To not have time to craft is almost like not living. LOL I really miss not being able to take time to do what I love to do the most. Anyway I thought this week I would use the Katharina's sketch 12 from PTW . Thank you Lise for sending me this cutie image.

Need To Bring You All Up To Date

I have been so busy, I haven't had time to breathe or at least it feels that way lately! I just finished an order for 100 Christmas Cards and I am so sick of them I didn't take one picture! LOL. I know it is only October 1st, but I wanted to have them done as my son and DIL finally got the keys for their house today! Woo Hoo! I am so proud of them. They have been married 6 years, last week, and have overcome some great odds in that 6 years. Today is DIL's birthday so she got a wonderful birthday gift. God has been good to them and to us too! Anyway we will be helping them move house over the next month. It was then I realized that the holidays would then be upon us. I will probably buy(did I say that) my Christmas cards this year. It will be the first time in many years, but...you do what you have to do.

Hubby is doing well and on the mend so I thank God everyday for taking such good care of my soul mate and best friend.

I will probably have to have surgery within the next 2 months on my wrist, thumb and ring finger. Not looking forward to that,but the injections are no longer helping so I guess it is time to think about fixing the problem rather than a stop-gap measure.

We also got our influenza injections today, so that is out of the way for another year! I hate those injections! Since they are given on a first come first serve basis at the local pharmacy you stand in line and wait and wait and wait. I feel like cattle being run through the shoot. LOL Enough! It has been a great day.
Hugs to all of you.
