My children...

Maybe a once or twice a year they let me pin them down and take some posed pics of them. Here are a couple from last week. :)

I'm glad volleyball is finally over. My darling daughter had such a good season. It was her first year playing and she ended up with the Most Improved award at the banquet. We also had our first meeting at the community college last week to get things rolling for my son to join the Running Start program his next (Junior) year. Did I mention he turns 16 next weekend? Time flies!!!

The week before last I had a bit of a health scare. While I was at work I had this funny tingling and odd sensation in one side of my head. The office thought I should call and check with my doctor's office to see if I should be seen. Long story short they (the doctor) urged me to come to urgent care asap. We were there for about 4 hours that night where I was poked and prodded and given a CT scan to rule out a stroke, tumor, and aneurysm which were all clean. I've had two follow up appointments and 1 more episode since. They have decided to consult a Neurologist and order a MRA and MRI. They think I may be having TIA's (mini strokes) and they need to rule that out. In the meantime, I am having a little reality check about my health. Now that we are living back in a bigger town there is no reason I can't make time to swing by the gym. There are 3 or 4 within walking distance of our apartment. I eat fairly healthy but really don't get much for exercise so the kids and I joined the YMCA last week. Until the doctor says otherwise I have to avoid the weights and can do low impact activity only but that is a start.

Friday was my birthday. I'm telling you because you NEED to see this monstrosity of a birthday my darling daughter made for me all my herself.

Check that out. And when you cut into it it was layered with white and pumpking cake. Here- I saved you some...

Wasn't it YUMMY! Heehehehe.

I think I'll leave this post at this. I'll be back in a few days with a scrappy/crafty update. :)

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your Sunday.

Hey peeps!

I have been a bad blogger and I'm sorry!

About three weeks ago we went to the Great Wolf for the weekend and I had a cold. We got there and a few hours later I was down for the count. Yep. Me - the sole supervisor of 4 teenagers for that weekend - sick... not the best combo. The kids were really pretty good though and were helpful to me when they could be. Here's a few pics-

This last week I am finally starting to feel myself again. Just in time to get the seasonal flu shot today- yipee! Not. Lol! I don't mind getting the shot but the flu shot hits me harder than a tetnus and my arm is sore for a week with swelling, bruising, pain - the whole bit. But this is life. :)

Things haven't been all bad here by any means though. We bought this air purifier for our apartment and it is SO nice!

Although we are enjoying our apartment, it is an older one with single pane aluminum windows that get a little bit of a mold/mildew build up. Plus the city we moved to is one with many mills and thus has a fairly large pollution problem. On top of that, my daughter is asthmatic. So this little machine is our new best friend and boy does it do its job well. Lowe's baby!

For the month of September I was a guest for Lauren Reid doing some hybrid work. It was a lot of fun! Here are some of the things I created with her stuff-

And I've been busy creating for Val too - Spotted Dog Designs-

And now that I've flooded you with pics I should really wind this up. I'm feeling better and the kiddos too, so I should be posting more regularly. Darling daughters last volleyball game is on Tuesday this week. That will be the end of the season so we'll have more free time in the afternoons very soon... until the next sport starts that is. ;)

I hope you all have a super fantabulous weekend my friends!
