Hello!!!!!!

Good Morning everyone and yes......I'm still here!
I think I "over-did" it a bit over the holiday and I paid for it dearly last week (and I still am!) I meant to inform everyone earlier about my absence and I'm just getting around to it. *tsk tsk tsk*

To make a long story short, I suffer from pinched nerves in my back and neck and when they become inflamed it is very painful and uncomfortable. I have been to my doctor for the unbearable pain and had to have pain shots in both my neck and back. The shots have relieved my pain somewhat and the medication I take is helping. I'm taking one day at a time and I hope to return to blogging sometime this week.

Take care and I'll see you soon:)

Been there several times and my best friend is one super size heating pad from Meijers. I go thru them things like water.

So stay warm (and no snow shoveling) and read a good book or two. And watch crap on tv and maybe sketch a bit of things you want to make when you are feeling better. Did ya hear the scrap store in Bay City is 50% off and going out of business? If we ever get a pension check, I may go up and check it out. Might be some nice picture taking along the bay too.

See ya when you are back posting-probably before me but I did put some photos up of my baby (scary ain't they?)

Omigosh, Risa, I had no idea!! I decided to come by and check out some of the cards I missed, and read this!!!

You poor thing .. there's nothing worse than pinched nerves ... well, childbirth but at least that ends within a day or so, lol ... and there's a great bonus to boot ... but this, this just stinks!

I'm praying that your feelin' better now and if not, that you will soon!

I heart you Big Lots! Oooohhhh, shopping!!!

~Hugs, Deb
