Last Week of Summer Break

This is my last week of summer break.  I have alot I still want to get down.  But I have had a great summer and my migraines have gotten better.  I am really looking forward to getting back to work, seeing the kids and just getting a schedule back.

It seems strange to say that because my son, Bill, feels the same way every time he comes home for more than two weeks.  He left Saturday.  The house is quiet, even though he is usually in his room.  I miss him when he is gone, but I know he enjoys being out on his own.

I haven't been on the treadmill yet, so I guess I had better get on it.

Long week

This has been a really long week.  I spent two days at the doctor's office then, Wednesday and Thursday, I cleaned house and just spent time with my son.  He left this morning heading back to college.  Last year, he came home once a month, I think it will be more like every six weeks this year.  I may be wrong but I think he will be busy.  I worked yesterday and today and I will be working again tomorrow.

I made a to do list today for next week.  It will be my last week at home before school starts back.  I am a cook at our local school (K-12).  The list is every thing I want to get done before I go back.  The list is four pages (5X7 pages) long.  I only have Monday thru Wednesday to get it all done.  I am working my second job Thursday thru Sunday.  I will let you know how much I get done.

I haven't decided how I am going to let you know I have posted on the other pages so for now, I posted on the Stamping and Health & Fitness pages this week.  I will try to find a recipe for the recipe page tonight.  I want to get my photography page up next week, too.

I hope everyone enjoys the rest of the weekend.

New Recipe

I posted a great new recipe over on the recipe page.  I hope you get a chance to try it out.

I am off to the treadmill once again.  I can't wait to get my fitness page up and running so I can post my plan and the results.

New Tabs

I am adding tabs today.  Stamping is up and running.  It is just a welcome post for now, but I hope to have card to post later today.

Recipes will be next and then migraines.  I want to add fitness and photography at some point this weekend too. 

I hope every one enjoys the new look.

Summer is almost over

Well the summer is just about over.  I have two more weeks until school starts back and I go back to work.  I had a lot of goals for the summer and I think I got about 75% done.

My first major goal was to get my migraines under control again.  I started having problems in December 2011 and they slowly got worse.  By May 2012, I was having migraines constantly.  I had seen several doctors and nothing seemed to work.  Then in a conversation with one of my doctors, a hospital was mentioned that specialized in migraines.  I came home and started searching the web.  It turned out that the "hospital" was local.  Actually, it is a practice that specializes in head and neck pain with an arrangement with a local hospital.  I made an appointment immediately.  I will have several doctors (Neurologist, General Pain, Behavorial Med, Physical Therapist, Internist) At the first appointment, my neurologist changed my meds.  After two weeks the meds had not helped, so it was decided that I would check into the hospital for 7-10 days so that strong meds could be used.  I will probably talk about this more later on the migraine page but it was a great experience.  I came out after a week with weaker migraines and a better out look about my migraines.  If you would like to follow my life with migraines check out my new migraine page.

Another goal was to do some major house cleaning.  I wanted to clean out closets and drawers.  All the walls needed wiping down and there is always furniture to rearrange.  I have managed to get all the rooms done except the kitchen, guest bedroom and Perry's office.  I will probably get the guest bedroom finished but I am not sure about the others.  We will see.

This is just two of my goals.  I will post about others as time goes by, but I really wanted to get something posted on my site.  I need to get on the treadmill.  I will chat later....

Name Change

I mentioned I wanted to change some things.  The first was a name change....I had a lot of trouble coming up with a name because I want this to be about more than just stamping.  For those that just want the stamping click on the link above.

I am going to try and keep the home page general with notes when I update the various pages.  If anyone has any suggestions, please leave me a comment.

I hope everyone will like the changes.  And I am going to try and get more active.
