Feeling sorry for myself

Well, I haven't posted in a while because I've been so darn sick. It's taken all the energy out of me and left me bored and lifeless. Plus it's raining and cold here today and I'm sick of winter. When will spring ever arrive??? Okay - enough whining! The best thing that happened this week was that my son finally came home after being away all week in Florida, - he had a great time but is happy to be home and we're happy to have him back. :)

And then I got the cutest little birdie in the mail from Jeanne over at Collage Art Studio. Here's a picture of the one she sent to me in a teacup (adorable!) and the one I sent her in return. Go check out her blog for more fabulousness. Plus she's a sweetheart.

Here's a few cards I did before I got deathly ill! Today I go pick up more amoxicillian! Hooray! Hope everyone else is having a better week than me!

were still sick here since we got it after you. I think were finally starting to get on the mend which is nice. I love the little birdies, yours turned out very nice. Here's to our health ! Lisa

Me too, Laurie! I saw several doctors on Tues. and they said we don't have the REAL flu. If this isn't the real flu, I don't want the other one. At least I have gotten lots of sleep. Dad didn't get it, but he has a bad cold. Look on the sunny side - Spring is coming!!

I can't remember a Winter when there was soooo much long-term sickness. I was knocked out for most of January. I hope you feel better soon Laurie. What is it with the birdies? They are so sweet-Love! yours with the little crown. Maybe because they remind us that Spring is coming.

Hi Laurie
ahh that is so sweet that your son is home again - that has to make it all brighter.

I had it too ! my gosh , it was AWFUL. I so sympathize with you and GET the part about being drained and lifeless ... its hard to get revved up again. They tell me it lasts about three weeks. I can only imagine you are at the "WHERE does all of this snot really keep coming from?" stage...HAng in there !

Your cards are darling and I hope you feel like creating again soon.

P.S. thanks for the comment - You made me laugh. Once I went back and looked at my post I felt a little sheepish. Sometimes...I do that , I think - OMG ! let me change that post QUICK . So I cleaned it up a little - Good Bye Heidi in her little outfit ! laughing. But thanks, I was glad you shared humor with me over it. WOW huh ? What was I thinking - practically porno posting like that !

Be Well ! xoxooo Love, S.
