This past year has been full of ups and downs, losses and finds. As I reflect on the year it has been a year of great changes and stresses.
I had my surgery on October 7 and lots of changes have taken place since. I ended up two days longer in the hospital and two pints of blood. When I was released my blood count was still way low but the surgeon wanted my body to make up what was missing rather than relying on blood transfusions. Almost four weeks out I got a bad wave of flu, eating hardly anything for that week, then followed that with two weeks of severe sinusitis, which also kept e from eating properly. The pastor and deacons got together the week before Thanksgiving and prayed over me, to stop the extreme weight loss and take away all the doubts , fears and illness that was plaguing my tired and worn out body. The very next day I felt great and have been ever since.
I have lost 71 pounds since my heaviest weight and 47 since my surgery. I also have lost 27 inches, dropping clothes sizes like crazy. I started going to the gym this week to begin the process of working out at least three times a week...and I have body parts that are so sore! LMBO But I know...no pain, no gain.
Anyhow, through all this I haven't made ONE card...and my stamp room became a storage room since Thanksgiving! So I need to take the time to clean it out so I can begin making swaps for the Michigan Mingles gathering in March! I think there are 50 spots or so. Not sure what set(s) I will use yet! I have some of the Sale-a-bration sets that will be arriving Monday!
So what's up with SU!? Check out my website and clink SHOP NOW. Both the Occasions Mini and SAB Mini are on line! And this year for SAB there is a list on the back page of the catalog where you can actually chose items from the regular catty!
