If life hands you lemons then go drink taquilla !
It seems that just when you think life is going to start running smoothly and the road is straightening a big pothole sucks you in and you have to crawl out of that hole . That has been the last month since we were on holidays . First our Kandi , cocker dog , took so sick and we thought we would lose her to the big puppy playground in the sky . Well she has fooled all of us and is off her meds and seems to be holding her own . Actually she is quite spry for a lazy 11 year old !
But that was just a pebble on the road as to what we are facing right now . My DH has had a major flare-up of ulcerative colitis http://digestive.niddk.nih.gov/ddiseases/pubs/colitis/ which has left him weak and very unwell . As of this weekend he will be on medical leave from work and on strong meds to try get this horrible disease under control . The next step will be hospitalization and possible surgery . If I can get him to stay at home for a week then I will consider myself lucky as he is a workaholic and HATES being " lazy " and resting ...as he calls it ! He feels guilty about leaving his staff in the lurch ( but that is what head office has people making big money to look after not the peons in the company ! ) which in turn will give him more stress and that is a LOT of the instigator in this disease .
To top off and to compound the problem , we just had word that his brother has been diagnosed with brain cancer . We aren't sure of the severity of it but the word is not good . I am a fatalist to a point though and I feel that he will fight this with all he has in him . My aunt that just passed away at age 80 had brain cancer 25 yrs ago and was a survivor and lived through 3 bouts of it ! DH is so very upset about this news though and once we hear the news from down east later in the week , we will make plans as to what we will do . We had hoped to just head out camping and sit and relax for the most part of next week with the motor home ( yes , I know that is not REALLY camping ! LOL ) but it will be away and we will relax ...... providing we aren't doing a trip that DH shouldn't be taking right now !
So if somebody has some ashphalt laying around or some gravel , could you fill this pothole so we can get back out of it ..................

- I have been married to the same guy for a LONG time ! We have 3 grown children and the 5 loves of our lives that they have given us ... 4 girls and one boy ! I have been crafting all my life and found my true addiction when I taught myself to use Copic Markers and introduced them into my card making ! I am NOT certified in the use of Copics but that doesn't stop me from creating with them ! I always been a bit of a crafting rebel and don't follow directions well !I love crafting with my hands and seldom will you find them idle as they usually have a crochet hook , knitting needles or a book in them . Exercise is not my strong suit ! LOL ! My husband and I also love camping in our RV ( weather permitting ... as in NO snow !) so most weekends from Spring to Fall you find us camped somewhere with our 3 Yorkies .... though don't tell them they aren't BIG dogs ! Hope you enjoy my little touch of my life .... the creative and the real life !
