Down but not out!!

WOW! What a week!! I spent Mon & Tues getting ready for my monthly stamp party/club meeting/fun time!! Tues afternoon, I was crafting and enjoying it SO much! Somehow, still have NO idea what the heck I did, I twisted my back/pinched a nerve or something! All I know is that from Tues evening until even today (Saturday) I have been on my recliner!! Tues night and into Wednesday night, I could barely move at all! Wed morn, I couldn't get out of bed by myself! Now for those that don't know me...I HATE asking for help!! And all I have been doing is asking for help! ICK!!

I was able to do my stamp club on Thurs, because like I told them...I'm not going to be dancing around while teaching!! LOL!! Not this time anyway! Of course that night I was exhausted! But we had so much fun!! I will post pics of our projects maybe tomorrow! I was just SO happy I had all my projects ready (which I have been known at times to wait until the night before to finish!!) and ready to go!

And then yesterday was a special day for our family but we also had some sad news. Yesterday was my oldest son's 16th birthday!!! (This pic was taken a few months ago...didn't take any yesterday but this is one of my favorite of him lately!)

WOW! I can not believe he is 16! He is finishing up drivers ed and will be driving full time in a few weeks! OMG!! I could go on for hours about his birth, his life and how extremely proud I am of him...BUT I will just say..Travis: I love you more than words can say! I am so proud of who you are becoming, and everything you have already accomplished in your life! I can't even begin to imagine how you will be in the future, but I am excited to see what life will bring to you and what you will bring to life!
We did take him out to dinner last night, but will have friends/family over to celebrate on Sunday!

Now onto the sad step-mother-in-law passed away yesterday morning (sadly on Travis' birthday) after a long illness. We all know she is in a better place, free of pain & suffering. But of course my father-in-law is extremely sad!

Here she is w/my hubby at our wedding 20 yrs ago....RIP Pam... you can see the reasoning for the title of this post! I am itching to get back into my craft area! You know how you want to do something when you can't...well I can't wait to be able to sit in my chair and make some cards!! I have been looking at many blogs the last few days...not much else to do in the ole' recliner! And I have a million ideas running in my brain!! Hopefully by Monday <fingers crossed> I can get in there and create!!!

Until next time....

Laura, I am so sorry for your loss. We lost my husband's mom a few months back, and we still feel her loss. She too is in the presence of her God and kneeling at her Lord's feet. And we will see her soon again, but it still hurts your soul when someone you loves leaves. We grieve differently than some but we still grieve. I will hold you and your family in my prayers. I will also pray for your back! I know all to well what back injury and pain can do. Don't push yourself to fast, get well. Hugs, Pam at
