This picture is not at all what I was going to display with this post BUT the expression on her face sort of matches mine , at the moment. Perplexed, Exasperated, and taking all her energies not to just put her head back down on the pillow. Her hair, however, looks a lot better than mine looks at the moment--make up too! Smile.

Well, what can I tell you?

Well ------ NO!

Went to the Doctor on Thursday.

Antibiotics and heavy duty cough syrup --- neither of which seem to be doing a - - - -

I keep asking the demon inside of me if it doesn't know it is the busiest time of the year.

Apparently , IT, doesn't care what time of year it is.

Also, I just took two sets of pictures to use for this post--neither of which can I find. This is the second time this has happened to me and I am exasperated. As my husband said the lat time," I thought you weren't supposed to have these problems with an apple."
The picture was of a huge cinnamon roll topped with a heavy amount of icing. My dear friend Bonnie left it on my door stop yesterday. I just ate ( I know, it is afternoon and not morning but for the last two days I have gotten up at 11:30! ) about half of it and if it does not do the trick then I am in deep trouble --- smile---for what could be better medicine than gooey sweets and a sweet friend?

My dad fell and twisted his ankle on Wednesday. He called wanting me to take him to Costco so he could ride around in one of the motorized carts and me push a cart to shop with him. There was no way I could do this and knew I should not be around him anyway. I asked him what he needed and he said the only thing he was really out of was Prune Juice. Soooooo----after the Dr.'s visit I went to the store, bought two jugs of Prune juice and left them on his doorstep and gave him directions to wash off the bottles and his hands. --- We are lucky it was just a sprain. My husband has been saying for a very long time there is a fall coming and it will be ugly. Don't like to think about him falling and not being able to get to a phone. So wish, so wish, he would move to an assisted living---but am done bringing that up to him. It just causes ugliness.

Hubby arrived yesterday afternoon. He tried hanging some doors and none are closing properly. Not a good start---Talk about exasperation. He is on the golf course now and that will give him a fresh beginning later today. Keeping my fingers crossed it is a good round for him. Is nice to be with him again even though we are still having to sleep apart because of my coughing.

Well, I guess that is enough said for the day except,W.E.L.L., I am still believing I will again be W.E.L.L. Hope you are already!

Hi to you girls,
On second round of antibiotics and at least am feeling a little better.
Sorry to hear of your stress DeDe. Kim, a blogging and paper art friend always says, " This too shall pass". We all are learning as we go through this life experience. Some lessons are more difficult than others but from what I can tell, us creative people are well equipped to do the preparation for the tests! Smile. Bless each of you. CeCe
