Hi everyone! My hand is healing slowly and it still is hard to type but I thought I had better jump on here and let you know that I am alive, lol.. I’ve been doing well with my sales at the local hand made shop, yippee! I even had a commission for a candle holder to encase the large sized Yankee candle order and she was so thrilled with it that she promised to be back for more. Lucky me, I have recently had the pleasure of shingles for the second time :(
Please say a prayer for my eldest brother, Kevin, the one with cancer. He has been in the hospital for a week now. He went in with pneumonia, original diagnosis, but now they can’t figure out why he is so sick.
I have some new pic’s of the grandkids and the latest masterpieces I’ve created, also a few that are still not quite finished. I’m most proud of my owls, my new style of dragons and the one for Sara to give her boyfriend for his birthday.. :) Much love and many blessings to you all!! Terri
First for family bragging:
Next for the Artist in me:
I had surgery on my hand a week and a half ago, so typing isn’t very easy right now. I had “trigger finger” in my thumb and it was causing me all kinds of problems but the surgeon said that he has never had anyone come back a second time after having this procedure done.
I was also on one of my MS sleeping jags again too. Last week, I believe, I averaged being awake for maybe a total of 4 hours each day :( I’m hoping that’s coming to an end, although I have been fighting to stay awake several times today.
I know, through the grapevine, that my brother finished up with all of his chemo for now. Praying it worked.
Dad and mom have been back from Florida for about a month now, both are doing good.
Mark had a new ultra-sound done and it showed some improvement in the inflammation of his heart. We figured that was probably due majorly to his now working. Mom said that will make him harder than ever to control and I agreed. I catch him doing things that he shouldn’t be often and have to remind him that he can’t do anything he wants to anymore. Today I had a can-nip fit about him carrying a TV in from the Jeep. He was pretty winded when he was done and I think he realized I was right ;)
The twins are both well over 7 lbs. each now and doing great!
Looking forward to my other two babies (Emily and Christopher) coming over to spend some time with grandma and papaw in the next couple of weeks. Emily was on the A Honor Roll last semester!!! I was so proud of her.
That’s about all my hand can take for now.
Peace, love and blessings to you all, Terri
Once there had been three
grandchildren to me
But now, man alive
the three became five!
On April 25th, my son and his wife had twins!! A boy, Hayden Ray, and a girl, Lillian Jo. Both are healthy (over 5.5 lbs each), although Lilly Jo was breach and broke her collarbone on the way out :( but is now moving her arm like nothing ever happened. After all of the depressing news we’ve had over the last 6-9 months, this is a much needed breath of fresh air. Here are some picture collages I made of our darling beauties!
Love and hugs to all, Terri
Hi everybody. I got a call from mom yesterday and she had talked to my brother. He is going through aggressive chemo’ treatments daily (for 45 days I think she said) and is doing as well as he can with them :( Just taking it one day at a time. She said that they are in no hurry to come back from Florida since it’s in the 80’s down there but thinking around mid-April.
Okay, don’t laugh at my handiwork technically speaking. I had a kitchen table in here before and it took up way to much of my limited space. When the grandkids were here, they had to pick their way through and I worried about something getting knocked off. (Shouldn’t have been so worried about them and more about Mark! He just knocked off one of the fairies you will be seeing in a minute and broke it in 4-5 places :( I glued it back together again, guess that’s a keeper. Anyway, I was browsing Pinterest boards one day and came across a tutorial on how to take an old chest-of-drawers and convert it for storing supplies (of course theirs were all nicely decorated, fresh paint…). I’m not trying to win any contests or anything, lol!
I have a few new things to show you that I’m just finishing up on too. Hope you like them.
Peace, love and blessings to one and all!!!!! Terri
P.S. Mark bought me a new desk on the condition that he didn’t have to put it together. K-Mart had these “Ladder Desks” on sale for $71 clearance. Sara and I did it all by ourselves!! Except for the drawer, she and her boyfriend did that for me :) It freed up a huge amount of space and there are not any danger spots now where things will be knocked off.
