Wow, I haven't blogged in a bit! Spring has been a busy season for us. My mother's day brunch didn't happen since I was feverish and slept all day. Turns out I had a sinus and ear infections. After some antibiotics, I was on the mend. Just in time for my poor Harley dog to come down with some illness. He was limping,and not eating. The vet diagnosed him with anaplasmosis. This is a tick bourne illness like Lyme Disease. So my puppykins is now on a month's worth of antibiotics, but should get better. But a word of caution - we've had a crazy amount of ticks on the kids this year. I'm talking at least a couple week. Do those tick checks!
My hand is coming along. The doctor pronounced it healed on Friday and told the therapist that my hand should get exercised with "No Holds Barred." This is good, since joints that weren't even involved are swollen and painful. I'm told this is from the lack of mobility, so I'm happy to try to exercise it, even if it hurts. I'm returning to work Tuesday night. Should be interesting!
Billy Joel played his opening night of a ten show run here at Mohegan Sun. Mike and I went and had a wonderful time. My sister kept the kids overnight for us. It was a treat to get out as a couple. I asked Mike to take my picture before we left - I figured I was all made up, so why not? Here's the one he took:
And here's a silly one I snapped of myself. I'm such a goof.
My mojo has been on a bit of a vacation the past few weeks. I've been working on a mini album for a DT project. And while I love what I've done so far, I just really had to WORK for every page I've done. You know, nothing just gels,so you keep moving things around and it takes FOREVER. So I took a few nights off. And tonight I scrapped a page that I am really happy with. It's one for me, with happy girlie colors and embellies. I'll post it tomorrow. Meanwhile, I think it's got me feeling like I can be creative again.
This weekend has been beautiful here. Sunny and warm, but with a light breeze. We grilled today and had a nice family meal after mass. The kids had a blast toasting marshmallows after lunch. I forgot how good s'mores taste!
Tommy was cute. He actually passed up the chocolate and graham crackers just to eat the "smarshmellows".
Later, Mike set up the hammock in the yard for me and I took a nap under the trees. Pure bliss!
Okay, well, it's late here, so I'll share some scrappy stuff tomorrow. Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
