I AM alive!

So, today, I feel like Mark Twain when he said, "Rumors of my death have been greatly exaggerated!"  LOL.  It has been a long month for me.  We enjoyed our vacation immensely, but my little man picked up influenza while we were gone (despite having had a flu shot).  He gave it to his sister (also had a flu shot), who gave it to Daddy, who gave it to me (also had a flu shot).  Well, mine decided to linger...and linger...and linger....three trips to the doctor later, we have a tentative diagnosis....asthma.  Caused by the flu.  Now using an albuterol inhaler four times a day...feeling better.  However, sadly, I had to give up all my design team spots because I couldn't make the deadlines for the teams, and I was letting everyone down.  I haven't made anything fun in over a month, since before we went on our vaycay.  I'm feeling the withdrawl.  Furthermore, a crafting day is not looking like a prospect in the near future, as when I was sick, I got very far behind on my grading (ugh!) and the last few weeks of school are a nightmare of busy-ness.  PLUS, I'm looking for a new job, so that is a timeconsuming piece as well.  So, please be patient with me for a few more weeks, while I get myself together....:)

And Happy Mother's Day  to all you mamas out make a difference every day!




  1. I am so glad to hear that you had a wonderful vacation. Sorry that you little guy picked up the flu. I can't even imagine how busy the end of the year is for a school teacher. I have not been spending much time in my craft room because the nice weather is here and all I want to do is be outside and hang out with my hubby and kids. :) Don't get yourself stressed. Do what you need to do and I can't wait till you are back when time permits;) I hope you have a wonderful Mothers Day!!

  2. Happy Mothers Day!!! Sounds like you have a lot on your plate right now. Sorry to hear you have all been sick :-( Sorry about the DT spot's too, I know that must have been very hard for you :-(
    I hope you all get to feeling better and you catch up on your grading and life will fall back to normal and you can start creating again. Can't blame you for having to take a break with all you have going on. (((HUGS))))

  3. Happy Mothers Day to you. Glad to hear you had a good vacation. The same thing happened to me this past winter-the illness leading to a diagnosis of asthma. Who knew you could get asthma at 40...not me. I really hope you can get back to all your fun activities and crafting soon. Take care of yourself first. Hugs to you. :)

  4. Hang in there Jenifer!! Things will right themselves in due time. I'll wait with baited breath to see what you do create when you are able to get back at it. You are in my prayers. Take care and don't overdo!!! :)

  5. Wow! Sorry to hear about all you have had going on. What an ordeal. Thanks for letting me know I won. You made my day. My email is I appreciate it! Hope today is a blessed day!

  6. Just wanted to see if you had emailed me, yet? I was worried you had but nothing came through. Didn't want them to be off in internet world some place. Just let me know. Thanks!!!
