Where Have I Been????

Hello Everyone! I know, I know - it's been a long time since I've said much of anything here. This year has been pretty darn chaotic so far. The first week of January I had the flu - yuck! The second week of January, John and I went on my birthday trip to Telluride.
The vacation was AMAZING! We had so much fun playing in the snow. And John took some beautiful "artsy" photos while we there.....
He's getting pretty good at this whole photography thing, don't ya think? Of course, I'm not biased at all!

After vacation I spent the next week trying to catch up on everything that didn't get done the first two weeks of January. Then......insert scary music here.......I ended up in the ER with severe abdominal pains! As it turns out, I had a kidney stone! I have one word to describe kidney stones - OUCH! I'd never had one before and it definitely WAS NOT FUN! If you've ever had one before you know exactly what I'm talking about.

Then in February, a friend of mine found out she has Ovarian Cancer and she's only 32! So, I've been taking some time to help her out. And Max, my sweet Golden Retriever with caner hasn't been doing well. So, I've also been spending A LOT of time taking care of a very sick boy. And I've been sleeping on an air mattress in the living room because he can't make it up the stairs to the bedroom at night. Double Ouch.
And then.....yup, there's more.....Emma got a terrible doggy stomach flu and that's why she hasn't been doing "Emma's Pick Of The Week." But she's finally starting to feel better now.
Soooo....that should explain why I haven't been around the blog much lately! But, I've got about 10 different projects in various stages of completion that I can't wait to show you.....soon......I hope. Ahhhh.....how I've missed sewing these last few weeks. I definitely need some sewing/baking/crafting therapy.

And Emma plans on returning to "work" next week. She's used up too many of her sick days this year!

I'll be back soon with lots of fun stuff to show ya!

Sorry to hear of all the sickness that has touched you and yours. When these trials come, esp when it is health related, we tend to slow down and take a good accounting of our lives and the purpose we have in it....glad things are looking better on some fronts. Yes, do get in some 'therapy' time to refresh and rejuvinate....
