Still Nothing.....

Well another week has come and gone and I'm still not being creative at all. I seem to have hit a slump. Lots of ideas just no will to do it. I am getting boxes ready to send Halloween gifts and cards to grandsons and working on some Holiday tags for Christmas but I have done no cards. Maybe after this coming week, month end, year end and inventory at work things will settle down some. The next couple of weeks will be a bear at work. I'm dreading them much.

Well I hope you had a good week and I hope you are looking forward to the coming week ahead. Enjoy your Sunday and remember.....be creative every chance you get....it keeps you young!

Letting things slide...

It seems that I am just coasting these last few days. I am letting things slide that should not be sliding. My sister celebrated a birthday and although I gave her a small present early, I neglected to call and wish her a HAPPY BIRTHDAY...SO HAPPY BIRTHDAY (BELATED) Donna. Sorry about that. I tried to call her last night and grovel but she was not home. So please accept my apology. I had to make a quick trip to the Vet Tues. morning with Maggie for a shot of steriods and she is much improved today. We actually slept last night....the first in three nights.

Update on Max....He has not been eating the last few days. Still drinking, but no food intake. He is sliding away from us and there is nothing we can do. My husband and I have had THE talk and we want him to be at home when his time comes. We are still hopeful for him, but we must face reality here. He has given us time to adjust and prepare and spend time with him but he is losing ground daily. When his time comes, he will be sadly missed....

Well it is Wednesday and I must get moving....work awaits...It seems like I haven't had time to be creative and time is slipping away for preparing the boxes for Grandson's for Halloween. I must get cracking on that.

Have a Blessed day....

Hello there.....

It is once again Saturday and quite frankly I am sooo pleased. I don't have a huge amount of housework to do today and I'm thinking I might just be able to squeeze in some crafting. I have several little things in the works to finish and I must get the goodie containers ready for Halloween so I can mail to my Grandkids. They just love receiving things in the mail even though we don't live that far away. So I try to send cards and boxes here and there just to give them that special feeling. Might I just say grandkids are the best!

Quick update on Max. These last couple of days he has been like his old self. Somewhat subdued but you can just tell he is truly feeling better. We are soooo proud that he is finally coming around. We know his kidney disease might take him out, but we are hoping for some quality time. He and Gypsie are stuck like glue together. Where you see one.....you see the other. That is not a bad thing...they seem to get along so well together. It does me good to see Max run some. Not full out yet but here and there is just goes trotting.

Well I must get my Cinderella rags on and tackle the housework around here so I can then do what I want. Enjoy your weekend!!

Good Morning....

Yes, it is Wednesday .... midway through another week. I find myself mired down and not able to find time for my crafts. Everyday issues are getting in the way. I have finished creating my cards for Halloween and am now looking forward to doing my Christmas holiday gifts and cards. I have several projects in the works but nothing finished. The season will be upon us before you know it and there will be shopping, wrapping and decorating to deal with. As I get older, it gets harder to accomplish everything but I still love this time of year. The leaves are beginning to turn here and you see a splash of yellow or orange here and there. Before you know it the wind will be blowing leaves everywhere and there will be a bite in the air with frost all around.

Can I just say, I'm ready for frost. With all the rain we have had this summer, there are fleas everywhere in the yard. We are constantly treating the yard so that MagPie can go outside. She is so allergic and one little flea can cause her such discomfort! She gets whelts the size of quarters when they bite. Soooo bring on the frost! No pictures of Magpie because she has no hair on her legs right now. Poor baby...

Well it is time to pull my body to the shower. Another day in the salt mines. Ha...

Update on Max.....

Max had a really good day on Monday of this week. I had the afternoon off and was home. Someone came to the house and i saw Max running to the gate and barking. Mind you he was not full out, but that was the first time I had seen him move even a little bit fast. Tuesday was not so good....Wednesday, he wouldn't get up when I came home .... no eating .....no drinking. We fully expected him to continue down hill until he passed. Today he is much improved again. Now what is going on with this little guy? Turns out Carl had been cooking beef for him and he was loving it but I read on the internet where too much protein was not good since his kidneys in the state they are in are not able to clear the protein. I talked to carl about this and he is giving cat food again to get him started and he is once again cleaning his plate and this afternoon he came to meet me with tail wagging and I am sooooo thankful. We have some dog food from the vet that is low protein and we will continue him on that and ween him off the cat food. Looks like we may just have a handle on this at least for awhile. I'm getting weary...when Max does not do well, we don't rest here. Many sleepless nights. We get so attached. Well i just wanted to share what I hope is good news. More later. Forgive my typing and spelling as I am in a hurry and need to do 20 more things before Carl comes home.

Yep...It's Monday Again....

Just like I said, I came home on Friday, went to bed and woke up the next day and it is Monday again...And It's Raining.... It seems our life is in a tornado. You know what I mean, no time for anything. Run here, Rush there and no time to enjoy the small things. Yesterday I just sat on my butt. No creative anything. Just sat looking out into space. Totally wiped out. Thank goodness I only have to work 1/2 day today. I am really beginning to enjoy this time off. I don't know if I will want to go back to 40 hours or not. Too much stress. I like coming home and having time to myself. Well I must rise and shine as best I can....I'm thinking there isn't going to be too much shining going on today.

SATURDAY....

Another week is behind us...before we know it, it will be the Holiday Season. I have mixed emotions about this, time is going by way too fast. Seems like i never have the time I want to slow down and breathe. My husband keep talking about slowing down, but our jobs dictate we keep moving fast. I know you are probably experiencing the same thing. Life has a way of getting in the way of the things we would rather be doing. I have been running on caffine for so long I don't know any other way. I am hoping to squeeze some time in for my crafting. I have lots of ideas for Christmas cards and would love some time to just putz with that.

The days are really cooling down fast. Seems like we are having an early fall....people are saying they are expecting a hard winter. Lots of snow. If we continue to be as wet as we have been then it just has to snow. Yea. No work. Sit at home by the fire...Looking forward to that!! Well it is 4:45 and I think my eye and hand coordination may just be awake so I'm planning on coloring with Copic markers on some Christmas stamps. Just a little time for me before the day officially begins. More later.....
