Long Long Time

It has been a long time since I posted (so much for that New Year's resolution) LOL!!!

I haven't been feeling well and finally went to the doctor and came out with an extra ailment that I wasn't even aware was wreaking havoc in my body.

So, the outcome was that I had a bladder infection and gall stones. After two rounds of anti-biotics the bladder infection is gone and when I return from my trip to Vegas on 5/5 I will need to schedule an appointment with the surgeon to remove my gall bladder. I was advised by my primary care doctor to cancel my trip but I told her "No Way". This is the JUG's 50th birthday year celebration and the fact that 10 of the 12 JUG's (just us girls) is going to Vegas is great and unless I am in the hospital will not miss this milestone in our lives.

I leave on 4/30 and return 5/5. I won't be able to drink or eat anything super rich and fun (boy do I CRAVE a hot dog with all the trimmings right now) but watching my food/drink intake will prevent me from a possible visit to a Vegas hospital.

I haven't really been doing any cards lately as my mojo has disappeared. I don't know if it's because I don't feel good or because I am just blocked. Maybe the trip will release new creativity into my blood.

The weather forecast this weekend is for rain so that rules out gardening. I did purchase a couple of tulip plants and got them in the ground last Saturday. I also got some of the pots that border the patio planted. I cleaned out the West-side raised bed and soon the irises will be blooming. I hope that there is some break in the weather as I need to get the East-side bed cleaned out so that the lilies and black eyed susans can begin to grow.

As always there are projects inside that are also on my "to do" list. Hopefully some of them will get crossed off the list this weekend.

Enjoy your weekend!!!

Oh no!! Glad I chose today to glance at the 1000s of blogs in my reader.
If you need ANYTHING, please let me know. I am always around and happy to visit while you re-coup.

Take care of yourself! And I wouldn't cancel the trip either. LOL
