I want to share with you a great give away at one of the blogs I read faithfully that is just wonderful! Please stop by Suzanne’s blog and read her great give away and how to enter http://scrapbitz.blogspot.com/2010/12/big-announcementgift-giveaway.html
Life has been extremely busy for me with work and then I got hurt. I haven’t even felt like going into my scrap room and create anything which is a little sad as I have the beginnings of a card on my table that I have not been able to finish.
I LOVE to celebrate my birthday because that is really the one day of the year “IT’S ALL ABOUT ME” and trust me I take full advantage of that. I have a purple tiara I wear that was given to me by one on my friends one year and I have been wearing it ever since. I do an annual countdown every year starting on October 1st letting everyone know how many days I have left till my birthday.
Well, this year I did one email as I was swamped at work and was not getting home until real late every night and just wanted to get in the bed. Then four days before my birthday I hurt my back and was unable to really walk it hurt so badly when I moved and all I wanted to do was cry. I went to the doctor and got a demeroll shot which after words I could tell it took away some of my pain but not much and he also gave me a prescription for vicodin but that just put me to sleep and I need to go to work so I only took three of those pills. I ended up going back to the doctor the following Monday and he gave me a prescription for 800mg of Motrin which has helped but if I sit for too long it stiffens up on me but I was determined to get on my flight that Friday 10/22 to Chicago for a friend’s wedding. I am glad to report that I only have slight pain now if I try and do too much at one time like put up my Christmas tree but other than that I can finally sit for long periods
This is the birthday present from my friend Myra. When I got the box I opened it and at first thought she had forget to put the gift in and all I got was a card and a big purple gift bag. Don’t get me I love purple but I had to pat down the bag to make sure nothing was in it. I started to dig in the plastic peanuts and found this beautiful Scrapbooking tote. Can I tell you this thing is just beautiful!!!!
Here is my husband’s birthday present to me that I told him he got me after I had ordered it on HSN.com. I have not had much time to use it but I am hoping this weekend to sit down and play with it.
So, what are your plans for the weekend? I have to finish putting up my Christmas decorations and my brother-in-law's graduation from ITT is on Saturday and then I hope to get some Christmas shopping out of the way.
