Alright, on to my workdesk. It looks exactly the same as 2 weeks ago, except that a bin of alphas is now on top. The same layout still sets there unfinished. I will say after getting back from our trip last week I did have my travel art/Bible bag, my camera, a few things I picked up at the stores scattered on the top too. These items were cleaned off yesterday as I was determined to finish this layout. I'm usually a "just get it done" type and not a "I have to have the perfect thing to do it" type. Well, as I was working up the title yesterday, I realized that it would be so much better if I cut a cursive font out of glitter pink paper for part of the wording. I had the perfect color, but with glittered flower designs. I don't want flowers. I want solids (temper tantrum thrown in here). I've since pulled out pink flock and AC spark! tinsel in cotton candy that I could use and "get it done". BUT...NO. I just can't pull the plug. I guess it will wait until tomorrow. We have dentist appointments, so I'll hit the Michaels or Joann's afterwards for some pink glitter paper. (shaking my head at myself for being that way, but the heart wants what the heart wants.)
I do like to keep these posts short, but have to share my next endeavor. A lovely lady at the client site my hubs works for gave him some zucchinis from her garden. Since we got our deer fence up this year, but no garden out, I'm ever so thankful. Zucchini Relish will be started today and finished tomorrow. Yummy!
And crafting has been really at a minimum for me as we clean up the house and play in the pool.
For those that want to stop with the crafty related only, stop here.
My daughters health:
Thank you all for the well wishes for my daughter. She has been fighting something for years which I thought were food related, but could not isolate, but it was only once every so often, maybe 1x a week to 2x a month depending. In the fall of 2014 things escalated and she became sick most of the time. Traveling one day would lead to her being sick all week. We found out she was hypothyroid and have that straightened out. We took her off gluten, dairy, egg, soy, green beans. She still had some issues. We were able to add soy back in, but had to take out most food preservatives and all artificial colors and watermelon???, seriously, out. Still her tummy would hurt and her motion sickness did not improve. She had allergy testing. Allergic to 19 of the 29 common allergens. She is now on claritin for allergies and doing immunotherapy drops to see if we can desensitize her. However, she is suppose to be at 3 drops per day and is still at 1. They say it takes about 5 years for the therapy and 6mos to 1 year to see any real improvement. But at only 1 drop, I don't know how long that will be pushed out. For her motion sickness, just to run to town she has to wear the patch that people wear on the cruise ships, but it's been working. She now may have a slight belly ache in the morning sometimes, and almost always has one at night, but she has been functioning during the day quite nicely. Blessings! The dr. thinks that she suffers from abdominal migraines.
This was a diagnosis that we had earlier, but the medicine didn’t work. The diagnosis changed and that med didn’t work. The neurologist took her back to the migraine diagnosis and put her on a different med, and we are keeping our fingers crossed. He’s also suggested a counselor for biofeedback techniques. He made several other suggestions which we were already working on, so at least I feel we really have been on the right path.
Happy Wednesday to all.
