I'm Off

Here is my MMSD Week 1 - sample 2 book. It is 5 3/4 by 16. I know you are thinking that's an unusual size. I hate to waste anything. When I made the pattern journal the cardstock was cut down and what was left I need to use. So this book is made bc of the leftover cardstock. I really like my skinny book. I tore up a local retail store booklet of mother's day ads. I chose mostly the legs, arms and body parts of the women. Then I picked words, i.e. - mother, our gift, mom, and whipsers. The pasted everything down then painted the cheesecloth a blue/purple. I even used the small little pieces of cardstock in between the pages to make them stronger. Like I said I hate waste and I had to use it bc I didn't want to pack it in my "stuff" junk box.

My Son & a New Bed
My son is scheduled to go to a specialist on Tuesday. The earliest they could see him. In the meantime they have given him pain meds. I hate that stuff; its so strong but I know necessary at times. He didn't spend the night but returned home to the beach. Then he called and said he wished he had stayed at "his" home. He was so cute in his conversation.
My hubby bought a tempur pedic bed and it was delivered yesterday. Is anybody sensitive to smells? Oh my I am!! I could not even sleep in my bedroom bc the odor from the pillows were so strong. It smelled like formaldehyde to me. I thought I was going to be sick.
Now the plastic was another story. Of course I saved that big piece. And my hubby just chuckled and told the guy he didn't get rid of it soon enough. I know I can use it to underlay my painting stuff and protect surfaces. Its even big enough to cover my swing seats in the winter if I want to use it for that.
It seems I am like a new-born baby. My days are messed up. I kept thinking yesterday was Saturday. My hubby had to keep correcting me. When he's home I lose track of days, time; just everything. I laughed so hard yesterday. We went shopping at Bed,Bath and Beyond to get a new comforter. But while in the bathroom isle I stopped to look at the magnification mirrors. My hubby didn't know what I was asking him to look into. When he did he was so startled at the magnified big nose. I started to laugh so hard I thought I was going to wet my pants right there. He is so funny anyway. Can you imagine!? Its good to laugh at ones self sometimes.
thank you for the prayers for my son. I know God works all things out for good to those who love HIM and are called according to HIS purpose.
