Hi Friends,

I am just checking in.  Its been quite a few weeks since my last post and I wanted to explain my absence.  My mom had knee replacement surgery on October 21st.  The surgery went very well and her knee is healing just as it should be.  She starts outpatient physical therapy tomorrow so she’ll continue to get stronger every day.

Along the way though she has had some other medical issues come up that have slowed everything down.  After coming home from one hospital, she was admitted to another one four days later where she stayed for five days.  I’ve been with her since the surgery and I’m her unofficial nurse.  If you know me, you know that blood makes me queasy (that is putting it mildly) so thankfully there’s none of that! I’m dispensing pills, cooking meals, helping with physical therapy, and doing whatever I can to help my mom.

I brought many of my crafting goodies to my mom’s house but haven’t had a chance to sit down and create.  I have many ideas swirling around in my head but actual sitting down and crafting just hasn’t happened yet.

If you would like to place an order at my Stampin’ Up! online store, the November host code is:  A2J6ZHYU.   If you place an order, you will receive the monthly ordering special  projects but they will be a bit delayed.  I have not yet posted them but you will receive them.  I hope to have them posted this coming week but we’ll see . . . .

I hope you have a wonderful week.
