Paper Pups Card

Here's one more from today. Paper Pups...@ 2 inches, I think.

Halloween Card

Here is a Halloween card that I made this afternoon. I used Paper Pups for the "BOO" at 2 1/2 inches. :)

Update and new card :)

Well, here's the update on the kidney stone. I had to go back to the doctor yesterday for another CT scan. Afterwards, I went back to the clinic to wait for the doctor to read it and let me know what's going on. The stone has barely moved in the past week...SO...I am scheduled to go in for same day surgery tomorrow. The doctor is going to go in there and blast the stone to break it up and then he is going to place some kind of tube in my urethra (to help the pieces pass). On a good note...he says that I should be able to return to work in a few days. :) I'll make sure to give y'all an update as soon as I feel like getting online again. lol.

Also...I've been playing around with my Cricut today and I scraplifted this card. Isn't it the cutest? The trees are from the Zooballoo cartridge and the hearts and "For You" are from the George Cartridge. :)

Hero's and Friends

Today was organizational day for HHC 1st BCT. It was held at the Cumberland River this year. It was one last HOORAH for the soldiers and their families to get together before the upcoming deployment. John was the organizer this year and everything went well. We enjoyed pontoon boats, jet ski's, skiing, tubing, inflatables (for the kids), fishing, good food, and great company. Here are some pics from the get together. :)

Kidney stone!

Ouch...I've been diagnosed with a kidney stone. It is the first one I have ever had in my life. If you've never had one...it's right up there with child birth! lol. The stone is stuck way up high in my left kidney. The doctor is giving me until Monday to try to pass the stone. I have to go in for another catscan on Monday afternoon and if the stone is still there, I guess he is going to do one of several different surgeries that they can go in and do. I'm praying I pass it or it dissolves before then. They have me on...are you ready for this?...NINE different medicines for this stupid thing! At least I was able to get a Dr.'s note so I could be out of work for a few days. I have to go back to work on Sunday though. In the meantime I am just resting and relaxing. I need the rest so I'm not complaining about that part of it...lol. I'll keep y'all updated. Have a blessed day!

Halloween Layout

Here's a Halloween layout I made this afternoon and wanted to share. :)

John's Birthday

Today is John's 39th birthday. I surprised him on my lunch hour by bringing him cupcakes, a Happy Birthday balloon, and a dozen and a half red roses. :) How sweeet am I? lol. Tonight we are heading to his Mom and Dads to celebrate with them and his brother and his wife and their kids. I'm sure we will have a great time celebrating with them. Can't wait! :)

work...work...and more work!

Goodness, it has been so long since I have even been online. I thought I'd give y'all a quick update. :)

The kids are doing great. They started school last week. So far so good...lol.

John...is getting ready to redeploy to Iraq. Joy. He keeps telling me on a daily basis how many days he has left here at home. It makes me sick to my stomach to even think about it. I'm trying to think of anything positive that I can do while he's away...ie...work, pay off bills...save for Disney World, etc.

Me...I can't believe I am a working mother! God...it has been so long since I've really had a job. I like work though. I thought they were hiring me to make the donnuts but instead I am the bread baker. I have always been a baker of sorts so it is something I like to do. The work is hard though. I stand on my feet ALL day long. It doesn't help any that we are short handed and I am doing the bread alone when it is a two person (at least) job. lol. I work and work and work until I think I can't work anymore and then I work some more. I'm really enjoying it though. :) The worst part about it is that I have to wear that stupid hair net thingie...lol. I'm certainly not Miss America...as it is...but put me in that stupid hair net and there is no hope. Ahhhh...VANITY!
