he's 13!

so my son just turned 13! we had his party at the pool...good times with family and friends! This was on the 10th of July so one of my goals this year was to keep up to date and not get behind on scrappin' This was an easy LO and I've been scrappin' other events as well in the meantime. This was fun! Now I'm gonna go scrap some more! I need to do more with that sun....

I finally was able to finish this two page layout! I have been feeling rather poorly as of late so I haven't been scrappin' as much as I'd like to. These pages were fun to do! I had my first infusion of new M.S. medicine this past Tuesday but am not feeling so good still. Any way...this was good for me!

wow! it's hot!

So I was able to scrap's too hot out to do much else! I think we will try the pool tomorrow. I saw my doc today and she says I have a great attitude about my M.S. I start my new M.S. therapy Tuesday. A bit nervous about it. It's an infusion that takes about an hour and then I undergo observation for an hour. Good times!!!

first tie!

this is my first sketchy Thursday entry (thanks to Heather for the inspiration!) it was fun! the pp is Echo park from the Splash collection, everything else is from my stash, I used the sew easy tool from We R Memory Keepers and yes, we have never made our son wear a tie before! This was his first and he had lots of fun!

not so good day!

so this is a not so good day! I can't do much because I am retaining so much water! My hands are so swollen! I can hardly even type this. So much for scrapbooking today!I have my good days and my not so good days. This is that latter of those today - God is good and He will be my strength on these weak days! and it's a week day - get it? week, weak - There goes my humor again, hee hee!

my son and wonderful husband! I am truly blessed!

I'm a newbie at this!

so I'm new at this...any suggestions would be appreciated! I have M.S. but it (thankfully!) does not have me! I am back to scrapbooking and have been fiendishly doing so! I guess I should clarify what M.S. is. It stands for multiple sclerosis - an auto-immune disease, that attacks my central nervous system just because! I'm blessed to still be functioning at all. When I have a foggy moment, I blame my lesions (thus sclerosis) and point to my brain. You cannot see them but I have them so I blame them! My doctor thinks that's funny and feels well, at least I've kept my sense of humor! It is a day to day disease...I never know what it will be like from moment to moment really. So anyway! Enough negativity! I have my God (faith), my family (an absolutely FABULOUS husband and 12 soon to be 13 year old son) and my sense of humor! and of course my scrapbooking, what I like to call my therapy! I grieved my diagnosis for a long time, years actually, and I've come to accept my new "normal" whatever that may be. So thus the blogging starts!
