Spring Cleaning

Blogging isn't the only thing I have been falling behind in. I can't even remember the last time I scrapbooked anything. I am hoping to get everything pulled out of my scrapbooking area in the loft, organize it somehow (and still be easy to get to) and get rid (or sell) the desk. I want to make myself a little, peaceful reading nook. I think it will be the perfect spot.

Somehow, posting this here will, maybe, make me more likely to actually follow through with it. lol :o)

Today, the 3 of us managed to get the van cleaned out, vaccumed and dusted. It looks so much better!!

May is Lupus Awareness Month

Lupus is an autoimmune disease that causes inflammation and tissue damage to virtually any organ system in the body. Symptoms of lupus may include joint pain and swelling, fever, debilitating fatigue, skin rash, kidney problems, anemia, chest pains, strokes, seizures and sun sensitivity.

Join the global effort to:

• Educate physicians, patients and the public about lupus

• Increase funding for lupus research

• Establish lupus as a significant public health issue worldwide

Can you name the organ systems in your body??

Where to Start??

Wow!! It has been a loooong time since I last posted anything!

I'm too tired and worn out to write up a long post, but I'll give you the Reader's Digest condensed version of my life lately.

Started a new part-time job last June(o8)...not because I wanted to, but because I had to. Hubby is in the wood industry and it has not been a kind one to be in lately.

Thought I was getting arthritis this last fall which was discouraging enough, but then it turned out to be more that that. I was diagnosed with Lupus in February of this year.

Now, I have low blood pressure (what's that all about??). The doctor thought it might be my Lupus medication but I've been off of that for a week now and it is still low. 100/68.

We are still homeschooling. Still love being a full time mom! :o) Wishing I didn't have to be away so much though. Thankfully they are accommodating. They understand that I homeschool and that I need Fridays and Saturdays off. Plus, it is just a 10 minute drive from home. (In all things give thanks!)

Oh and we are also the new and proud owners of a cat. Never thought I was a cat person til this little tiny fur ball was abandoned at my in-laws last Thanksgiving. She was so tiny she would fit in my hand. She is a cutie for sure!. :o)
