Racing Stripes

Trent is a toe walker. We thought he would eventually outgrow it but he never did. He started physical therapy in May 2009. It helped a lot and we thought we could continue his exercises at home. Well, that didn't work. He recently went back to physical therapy and is working again to get off those toes. In the picture, he's wearing tape on his calves to help him walk normally. The physical therapist called the tape his "racing stripes".

This is new Lily Bee papers. I'm a new fan of theirs. I just love the small patterns. There are Crate chipboard pieces on there as well. Oh, and I see a little Jillibean Soup peaking out from behind the journaling card (which is MME).

This is Ashley from a long, long time ago. Probably about 10 years ago. The problem is that after I scanned the layout, I spilled red wine all over it. *sigh* Now I have to do it again.

This is new Cosmo Cricket Salt Air

This is new BasicGrey Life of the Party. There are a few Fancy Pants rubons as well. I think the pictures are from LegoLand.

Thanks for looking. I'm feeling better these days. Thank you so much for all the well wishes and cards. They really worked!

This week, our design sister, Melissa, asked us to use the dachshund cut from the Paisley cart.

I also used Cosmo's new Upcycle line. I really like the colors in it.

Here's a layout I made using some new MME. I think I've already scrapped this picture before.

Thanks for looking. :D

Grumble, grumble

I'm just going to get it all out in one post. 2011 has really stunk so far. It started with the sinus surgery and then my back and hips. I have always had issues with my hips but for some reason, this time it's really bad. Xrays determined that I have sciatica and arthrits. *sigh* It's very, very difficult dealing with chronic pain. It's depressing. It drains me of all my energy. Add in the stress of the Girl Scout cookies and the booths. I cannot keep up with household chores (dinner?? I'm supposed to cook dinner?)and I've had to cut my hours down at work to one 4 hour shift a week. Last Sunday, I couldn't even do that. After two hours I had to go home. My legs were screaming at me.

I've had to cancel my card classes. I can't sit in a chair long enough to design cards and all I can think about is the pain.

Erik has been working 12 hour days. I never see him anymore.

I found out last week that I have a sinus infection 6 weeks after my sinus surgery...

and yesterday, my cat died.

I feel absolutely worthless.

So, there you go. I got it all out and I feel a bit better. So, if I seem a bit cranky, don't take it personally. ;)

I'm working towards a better future, though. I've been going to phsyical therapy twice a week and I've been forcing myself to do a little bit of creating in the evening after the pain killers kick in but before I get too sleepy.

See, my life is not as perfect looking as sometimes the blog displays. If you're having a bad day, tell me about it.

Oh, and here are some layouts that took me several days to complete....
