Hi Friends,  Happy Sunday!  Just thought I would check in, say hello & give an update, so that you don't think I have disappeared again.  I'm still here...yay1!!  No Camera cord though :((  All I can think of is that I accidentally threw it away!   The reason I am thinking this, is that I spent all day yesterday trying to rearrange my stamp room/office!  Oh my goodness...what a job!!  You never realize how much stuff you have until you try to move it......WHAT A PACK RAT I AM!!!!  You would not believe what I have thrown away.  I save stuff of all kinds....Packaging, containers...blah,blah, blah!!!  Well I have had to toss a lot of it.  While I like the new arrangement, IT DOES NOT LIKE ME!!!  I am really struggling to get everything to fit and I have less in here (not much) than I did before.  I still have not finished putting it all back......Geez, everything is soooo dang dusty!  I have had to clean just about everything!  I am just glad that I store all of my papers to protect them.  I still have enough to do in here to keep me busy for a month...working on it every day!

Well the good part about this is when I can get a cord for camera.....I will be having a big blog candy!  I am thinking of a contest!  What do think?  A hint....1 part is a fabulous Tim Holt die that I got a duplicate of recently.  I knew it was a duplicate when I bought it, but the deal was on e-bay and it was 3 dies for a great price and I really wanted the other 2.  I just figured it would be good for blog candy.  If I find to much stuff, I may split into 2 Candies!  I intend to get a camera cord in the next day or so.  I will see if I can get one from Olympus online today,  I know Staples has a generic one, but I don't know if it will work on my camera.  Here is the problem.....Since I had 2 seizures (still sore, bruised & paying for them), I cannot drive for 6 months, so I have to get someone to take me to shop!!  UGH!!!  I hate not having my independence!

On the health issue.....haven't had any more seizures, thank the good Lord.  I have huge bruises all over from the last one!  It was the worst one I have ever had and hubby says that it lasted for about 15 minutes, which is a long time.  You know the awkward part about this, is that we had visitors when this happened.........HOW EMBARRASSING!!!!  They saw the whole dignity left here!  I had a lot of factors that caused this one though, one being the stress of the above visitors.  We haven't heard a word from them since!  LOL!  All in all though, except for feeling like I took a really bad beating, I have been feeling better this last week.

I've had tons of fun shopping online lately too!  Bought a bunch of Nestibilities, Tim Holtz & a couple of generic dies and a bunch of. Cuttlebug folders.  Since I have more than 5,000 stamps (lost count), I need to concentrate on things to jazz my cards up!  Anyway, ordered lots of stuff (On the way), bling, tools, papers, etc.  Now I just have to figure out where to put it all!!  LOL!  Don't you just love all these stunning craft rooms you see in blog land!  EAT MY HEART OUT!!!  Unless I have some sort of miracle happen, mine will never look that good....LOL!

Well sweet friends.....I know I have blathered on and on and could keep going here, but I am rambling and will close for now.  I have tried to make this post upbeat & happy...hope you caught that!  :))  With my closing I leave  you with a picture of my beautiful Grandson Dylan on the John Deere tractor I bought him!  He is such a happy "Little Man" and I hope & pray I will get to meet him someday! 

May the good Lord Bless you all with a wonderful day!  Love & Hugs Lori

I'm glad to see you're feeling a little better. No cord for me either. Sure don't remember where I put it. Guess I'll put it in the camera bag f I ever find it. Yay, candy! LOL! Dylan sure is a cute little guy. What a big smile.
