Hello everyone! I am thrilled to have you visit with me and I hope you enjoy your stay. I absolutely love company, sharing, and making new friends so I hope you find something here that inspires, motivates, or just pleases you in some way.

Of course, I love to visit and be inspired also. So if I don't already drop in on you, please let me know where I can find you and I'll hop on over to see what you're doing or to just say "hi".

Before you go, I would love it if you'd please leave me a comment letting me know you dropped in! Actually, I'd just love to hear from you -- comments, opinions, or questions you'd like me to answer.

In the meantime, relax and make yourselves at home... you're family here!!!

I'll be seeing you!

Hello, again!!!  Hope everyone is well!!!

  NO, I didn't disappear again!  The hubby was insistent I stayed still until my follow-up visit with my doctor -- which was today!!!  My incision is nearly completely healed and I got a clean bill of health so that should satisfy the hubby -- I hope so because he's definitely been a pain in the rear... a sweet pain but a pain nevertheless...lol!!!  I promised him I'd keep still and I did!!!  Now it's my turn to be foot-loose and get back to what I enjoy!  LOL!!!

I did get to visit with a few of you but it was so uncomfortable for me sitting up for too long that I decided to just wait the couple of days myself  and give myself time because I DO NOT LIKE HOSPITALS!!!  DO NOT LIKE the bland food they prepare for your meals, and do not like being constantly disturbed during the night, so I decided I'd be an extremely good girl so as not to unintentionally find myself back there again any time soon...lol!!!

Anyway, I guess you might have noticed the blog hop announcement on my right-hand sidebar; well, that's because I'm a participant, so I'll be here on Wednesday for Brenda's birthday hop with a project and I hope you'll join me.  Of course, I'll have some blog candy too!!!

I can't tell you how very much I've missed you and I'm so glad to be back now to hang around a bit, visit, and work on some much "need to do" projects...lol!!!

Unfortunately, I'm so very far behind in getting to visit with you that it's impossible to play catch-up, but as soon as I finish my projects for this week, I promise to start getting around a bit faster now that I can maneuever better.  Just don't give up on me, I'll be there.

Thank you all for your wonderful comments, for being here supporting me, and I love you all! Looking forward to resuming at least "somehere as close as possible" where I left off.

Hugs, and...

I'll be seeing you!!!

Audrey, my friend you must stay still and get well. I know how it is when you think you are up to something, but if the doctor and hubby says rest, that is what you do. Take your time and rest, we will always be here for you.

Hugz, xx

YAY! So glad you are back to normal! Missed you terribly, but would rather have you back with us at 100% so that we can keep you that way, so give hubby a hug for us. I know you are going to probably kill me for saying this, but I think he was right. Hee! Hee! Boy! Am I gonna pay for that one. Sometimes, us hubbies do know what we are talking about though. Hee! Hee!

I'm so glad your getting better Audrey! Oh I hate hospitals too, oh so much. The smell, the noise, all of it. Boy, does your husband and mine sound just alike. You know their intentions are good but my goodness they can drive a saint to a life of sin sometimes! lol! Whenever I would get up my hubby would be like, "where you going"...gez, relax...to the bathroom! lol! Oh, I bet you know exactly what I'm talking about! But even though they drive us a little loco at times, we are very lucky to have such wonderful husbands! But for now...it's time to cut loose, foot-loose! ;)

Can't wait to see what your making for Wednesday!

Have a great day!

OMGosh I'm so sorry that you were in the hospital! I've been running back and forth between the hospital as well because Jay is back in, so I haven't had a lot of time to blog visit. I do hope you are feeling better and that you are back on the road to recovery. I also hope it wasn't anything too serious. Sending big hugs! Curt
