Um yeah...

Okay. So I'm not really back to scrappin' like I promised. But I've made a few Thank You cards this week using the button studio from Epiphany Crafts. Love them! I'll post them soon :)
No layouts though. And I REALLY REALLY need to get back to cranking out the layouts. Who knew having an upstairs scraproom would be such a pain in the tukus! I can't scrap when I need to be downstairs monitoring what my 4.5 yr old curious boy is doing :(
And Daddy is out of town this week (pretty usual these days.. gotta make $$).

I'm also busy getting all of Caleb's "baby" clothes ready to sell at the Just Between Friends consignment sale that's coming up in a few weeks. That takes LOTS of time.

I just love this picture. It's from last year but it shows you my many chins. Yeah, I look horribly fat but that's okay. It shows the love I have for my son. So I love it. And guess what!? SEVENTY POUNDS of that fat is GONE!

This weekend we are going on a mini vacation/road trip to Michigan. Hopefully next week I'll get to scrap (fingers crossed).

See ya later alligators!

Well Hey There!

Hey hey hey!

I'm feeling a bit better after having two Endoscopys. The last one opened up the hole from my new stomach pouch from 3mm to 11mm so I'm not near as sick as I was. Thank you God!!
I'm still very weak though as I'm not getting enough nutrients/calories/protein in. They are talking about giving me a feeding tube but I am hoping to avoid that.
But on the upside, my infected incision finally healed and I have lost 52 lbs as of Wednesday! WHOO HOO!

So anyway, yesterday Caleb and I went to Archivers and I got some of the new Crate Paper TOY BOX line.
Oh my, it is SOOOOO cute!
I got the paper pack and the chipboard. I can't wait to play! This is SO Caleb. I should get several layouts out of this :)

Also, cute Caleb started playing Soccer on Wednesday. I couldn't get very good pics b/c of the lighting (indoors) but, I think I'm going to print a few of the better pics out on my POGO printer and scrap them next week using the new Toy Box line.

I am SO excited that I actually feel like scrapping again! YAY!!
I hope you all have a great weekend. It's going to be nice here the next few days. YAY SPRING!

Not doing so hot...

I thought I would be back soon but, who am I kidding.. things never work out for me like that.
I few days after I came home after surgery, I developed a "Seroma" under one of my incisions. Well, it became infected and basically, I am in alot of pain. Not to mention, this surgery isn't all sunshine and roses like the doctors want you to think.
I can't drink more than a small sip of water every few minutes or I get sick. I've been miserable pretty much every day since the surgery. I know in time it will get better and hey, I've lost over 30 pounds already and it's only been three weeks.
But at this point, to anyone who is even considering this surgery. I say DON'T DO IT. Maybe I'll change my mind in a few months.. we'll see.
Right now there is no scrapbooking in the near future and that really bums me out.

I do want to send some love to my friend Charlotte who sent me two boxes of Prima goodies this week. She is so awesome. I love ya girl. And thanks to all who messaged me love. Please keep praying for me. I'm really worried about this infection.
