I hate to be a DD/Birthday Wishes

Don't you just hate to go to people's blogs and all they do is complain, complain and complain. Or do you work with someone who is like that? There is ALWAYS something going on with them... there mother is sick, their dog ran away, their cat died, their house got broke into - gosh who knows what might happen tomorrow because all that happened just today! Oh don't you just hate knowing or even being a "Debbie Downer" (aka DD)????

I know that I hate reading stuff like that - so when writing this blog I feel like I am walking a fine line. What do you tell the readers? Do you tell them everything? Do you leave out the bad parts? Only tell them the good???

But on the other hand - if there is something that is going on that will effect your blog or how often you write, or it is going to effect your work - and how many new files you have... should you share that information?!?!?

Then there is the family aspect... I mean my family does read this blog - as they are trying to keep up with us youngin's here in the real word...

So as you can see it is quite hard to decided what to write and what not to!!! LOL

Having said alllll of that - I guess what I will say (and I hope I don't come off as a Debbie Downer) is that I went to the hospital on Friday for this kidney stone which I was sure I had, (and if you will recall, I just passed a small one two weeks ago).

Well - sure enough, I have a 5mm kidney stone in my right kidney - BUT oh by the way Mrs. McDonald - You also have two gallstones (one that is blocking the duct) and we are a little worried about something we see on your liver.... HOLLY COW!!!! When did I get old!!!! When did I start having medical problems!!!!!

So - as you can see the next few weeks are filled with Dr's appointments, Cat Scans, test, lab work, etc.... so if I am not as chatty as I normally am - well.... I just felt I owed it to you, my readers, to tell you the REAL REASON why!!

Now you know the real deal - IF you are still reading this of course.... lol - Don't forget I will be having an "AFTER THANKSGIVING SALE" at Paperthreads!!! ALL my file will be 30% off - and I am doing my best to get all my new files in the store BEFORE the sale!!!!!

I'll keep you posted as I add them!!!

Once again - so, so, so sorry to drag you into my crappy life right now - but I would rather tell you the truth now - than you wonder were in the heck am I later!!!!

Until Next Time (which will be more upbeat I PROMISE)!!!


PS - If you are still reading this post - please visit my friend and prayer warrior Susan's blog and leave a comment telling her HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! Doesn't matter if you know her or not. Doesn't matter if you have ever visited her blog before or not - I would just love for her to get a ton of comments on her blog today wishing her a "Happy Birthday"! She has been there for me in some really tough and hard times..... and I would like to send a few well wishes to her on her special day!!!! So wa'cha waiting for!!! Go on do it!!! Bahahaha... and thank you!

I'll leave you today with a layout my friend Susan did... she designed the concept in her head and then I had the pleasure of trying to actually put it on paper and then to design it and cut it out on my cutter!!! I have to say it was an AWESOME layout in the end!!!! Hope you enjoy seeing it!!!

Dear, Dear, Lori. I am glad you shared your information and so sad you are suffering. I know that all will come out well. It is just a hassle. I've had my gall bladder removed -years ago- but it is so simple now.

Hang in there kiddo. You'll be fine.

BTW, We finally have a pilot in the house. Whoooo Hooooo

What a beautiful layout page. Yes, please share any information you feel you can. I hope you are feeling better. Don't worry about looking like a DD. Sometimes there are just bumps in the road.

I sympathize greatly - I went from being perfectly healthy (I thought) to having rheumatoid arthritis, high blood pressure, and pre-diabetes in the space of about 6 mo. this year. Does make you feel old, if you let it. Hang in there - better to know and deal with it and move on!

Lori, I work with two DDs so trust me when I say this, you are NOT a DD! I am sorry that you're feeling bad and having medical problems and I hope they get resolved sooner than later. Love the page layout, that is just awesome!

Sorry you are having to go through all this testing, probing & prodding stuff, Lori. Glad hubby is close to help you through it though. Take care of yourself and know that many are thinking of and praying for you.
