My mortality


These last few weeks have been tough for me, I have lived a pretty healthy life. I have only had to go to the doctors once, for stitches when I was about 5. I have been very lucky. It has finally caught up with me and it is my turn to carry the burden of health issues. I am having my gall bladder removed this Friday, since having a serious attack about two and a half weeks ago I have lost over 15 lbs. I got bloodwork back yesterday and my liver is also having some issues more than what would be normal while having gall stones so there is some worry there as well.
While I know this surgery is very routine none the less the fact that I will be put under worries me, what if I don't wake up? With three very young kids I want to make sure if the unimaginable happens they have photos with me and each their own letter for them to read whenever they want. as a mother it breaks my heart to know that the boys will probably have no memories of me if something does happen and photos and videos will be all they have.

I know everything will happen as it should and because of that I want to make sure I do what I can. It will be quiet around here until after the surgery, family time in full force as well as a sweet little girl starting kindergarten this week.

I know a lot is going on in the world and prayer lists are long but if you can I would love if you could squeeze my family in there it would mean so much to us.

Love you all!

Another Insta Friday

This week has been crazy! I have been diagnosed with gall stones and it has been a painful week to say the least!! Glad the week is almost over here's to the weekend!! Not many photos taken but lots of goofiness has been happening around these parts.

Join the fun!

getting back in the groove

I dont know how many of you out there that read do craft shows. I only do a few a year but boy do they wipe me both physically & creatively!!!! I love them, otherwise I wouldnt do them but none the less when I get home from a show the last thing I want to do is paint. I dont look at my paint brushes for weeks, honest! Well my recovery from the craftacular was a lot quicker than normal (yay!)

Eyes everywhere

I am sure Ken hates then when he walks into our living space there are all these eyes staring at him (or spots that would be eyes) but I keep the art out so I can keep walking past it and tweaking it whenever I get a chance. So yay for painting. I am also using a new supply called PanPastels, can you say love?!?!!? More on that later.

What about you, what is your creative practice, get it in when you can, or set special time to create art, do tell I wanna know!


Here was our week in a quick wrap-up!

::an OBSESSION with making train tracks has begun::

::Beating the heat inside with books::

::Thrifty scores were had, completely with the little ole lady smell!::

::Naps are taken where ever I can get them::

::Teeth! bottom two are about to break through the skin::

Wanna join the fun?
