    A Freebie

    I figured now that I’m not selling my designs anymore I’d post them here for free so they aren’t just taking up space on my hard drive. Today I’ve got a template for you. If you already bought Sketch it Pack 6 then you already have it but for the rest of you here you go:

    Going for my MRI at 12:30 today right when our snow is supposed to start, at least the DH is driving! :)

    What Does Your Birth Date Mean?

    Saw this little quiz on the SSD blog. I hope the rich part comes soon! ;)

    You Are a Tycoon

    Watch out Donald Trump! You've got a head for business and money.
    You'll make it rich some day, even if you haven't figured out how yet.
    A supreme individualist, you shouldn't get stuck in a corporate job.
    Instead, make your own way - so that you can be the boss.
    Your strength: Your undying determination
    Your weakness: You require an opulent lifestyle
    Your power color: Plum
    Your power symbol: Dollar sign
    Your power month: August

    What Does Your Birthday Mean?


    The insurance company finally approved my MRI!!! I have no idea when it will be yet but we are headed in the right direction! YAY!

    I scrapped on Sunday. Got one whole page done before a nasty stomach bug kept me on the couch whining. Here is the one page I got done:


    It snowed again here in NH. Thankfully school is not cancelled and we only got 3 inches or so. I guess we had to be reminded it’s still winter or something, I mean we haven’t had a storm in like 3 weeks! Happy Thursday all!

    Happy Valentines Day

    So I woke up to this this morning: 


    Yes that box of candy does say Princess and those ARE green M&M’s. And then he said bye and went to work. I cleaned house and did some CT assignments. Now I’m trying to decide whether or not I want to go take a nap.

    Oh, I had breakthrough with my knee yesterday! After almost 5 weeks the swelling finally went down and my right knee is almost the same size as the left. I’m not sure if was the E-Stim/Ice from PT or just time but I’m happy. It still hurts but as long as I’m careful it’s pretty much fine. I am hoping by mid next week I’ll get my approval to get the MRI to find out if I need surgery.

    It’s a long weekend for me but not the boys, Michael has to work and our town is making up a snow day so I’ve got the day to myself. I may just heat up my scrap room and head down there for the day now that I’m off the crutches.

    And that’s it for me. Have a great weekend!

    My Word

    I saw this on the SSD Blog. I am pretty happy with my word:

    Your Word is "Love"

    You see life as possibility to form deep connections with a few people.

    Relationships are the center of your world, and you always take time to bond with those you love.

    You are caring and giving. You enjoy helping those you love.

    And when it comes to romantic love, you feel passionately ... even in a very long term relationship.

    I’ve Had It!

    Off to the doctors AGAIN. I was doing my exercised that the Physical Therapist gave me to do at home last night and I tweaked my knee so bad that I am back on crutches and in pain. I am so tired of this. I hope THIS will finally make them realize I need the MRI. I’m tired of going back to work and then taking days off because of something like this. I just need to find out what the heck is wrong and get it fixed already!

    Yesterday was DH’s bday. Luckily we went out to dinner on Sunday night because last night’s spaghetti with stuffed meatball dinner and bday cake was cancelled since he had to go out to do an emergency job. We plan on doing it tonight but between my knee and his work schedule who knows. He does love the GPS I got him so there was one good outcome of yesterday!

    Other than that, not much else new here. Hope everyone is well!

    Birthday Memories

    The SSD Blog asked us to blog about a memorable birthday. Mine will always be my 40th. There is nothing that I think will ever top it. 4 of my close girlfriends from all sides of the US (CA, FL, TX, NY) came to celebrate with me. We went to a scrapbooking crop on Cape Cod. It was definitely the best birthday I’ve ever had. We laughed and talked and ate and even scrapbooked a little. The weather was gorgeous for March on the Cape and I couldn’t have asked for more. Here is a photo of the 5 of us on the beach…


    I’ll never be able to thank these girls enough for making it the best birthday ever!
