On the Mend

Hey Folks....been flat on my back for a while. I even made a trip to the ER in a real live ambulance. Cool huh????? NOT!!!!! Seriously, I have a herniated disc AGAIN!!!!! I had surgery nearly 2 years ago and I had hoped I would not have to repeat this process for a while but unfortunately things did not go as I had planned. Oh well, it is what it is and life goes on. Tomorrow is my 5th MRI since this all began 3 years ago and as usual, I am not looking forward to it. I do not wish this kind of pain on my worse enemy, well maybe just a little...LOL!!! Enough of me...I just wanted to drop off some new stuff...that's me, always sharing!!!! I will be glad when I can get back to my table to work up some more magic. Until then, Enjoy!!!!!

Addictions....I have an addictive personality. Once I find something that interest me, I obsess over it!!!! Just like the Twilight Series. Now I am addicted to gorgeous vampires and all things supernatural or as Sookie calls them, "Supes". I have recently been turned on to the Stackhouse Series and I have been unable to put them down. I have just finished book no. 5 and can't wait to take a bite into no. 6. These books are the foundation of the True Blood series on HBO but very loosely based. What makes these books even better is that the author chose Louisiana as its home state!!!

Of course my other addiction is scrapbooking...I just placed another scrappy order for some lucious Lemonade by Basic Grey and the new line from Pink Paislee called Twilight. Oh how appropriate to intermingle my two loves...Scrapbooking and dreamy Vampires! Gotta love it!!

Back to School

"Gotta go back, back, back to school again...." Yes, it is that time. Time for schedules, alarm clocks, homework, and fall tv. The kids are getting back into the groove and loving every minute of it. I now have one in elementary, one in intermediate, and one in high school. Next, there will be band concerts, dance recitals, and homecoming games. I love it!!!!!!!

The other day, Abigail and I watched Grease 1 & 2. She was so tickled that I could sing along with every song and that I knew how to do the "Hand Jive". Ha, when I was her age, I had the Grease record and listened to it on a daily basis...then she asks me what is a record????? Hmmmmm, can you say, I feel OLD???? Anyway, with the whole back to school thing going on I couldn't help but reflect on Danny and Sandy singin "Summer Nights". So I thought it fitting to say farewell to Summer with Danny and Sandy and welcome the new school year.

While busy amongst all the school hoopla, I have found the time to scrap a little. This one is of Duane and his Dad. They both work or have worked for the UP...Union Pacific Railroad. Duane's brother is also carrying on that tradition as well. Maybe one day, I can get a picture of all 3 of them.

Here is just one of the many pics from this summer. Little Miss Abigail is jumping in mamaw's pool, trying to make a big splash! This is a very bittersweet picture...Momma and Daddy sold their beautiful house by the lake. They have decided to downsize since they have both officially retired. I'm gonna miss my paradise on the lake.
