The Good the bad and the ugly.........






First of all I apologize for being such a bad bad blogger, but I do have excuses, lots of them............it was the week from Hell........let me recap, may I bore you with the details? Before I do, let me start by saying that last week was supposed to be one of the best weeks ever!!!! EVER!!!!! Two amazing events on the weekend, the Artistic Affaire, for which I had been eagerly awaiting for months, and my daughters wedding shower #2, hosted by her bridal party at my house, with some of the most special people in attendence!!!!
So the week started by my last day at work, oh, for at least until fall, at which time I will either drag myself back kicking and screaming, or I will go back grateful to have something to do, that is for another day and another blog.at any rate, as I was driving home from work last sunday, I should have been dancing in the street, instead I noticed my bones started to ache a little.........no......a lot, by the time I got home I was literally consumed by the flu and spent the next 2 days miserable in bed...........now this was not good because I had scheduled my laser surgery to have my varicose veins zapped for wednesday, and nothing, not no flu, nothing was gonna stop me.........so anyways, I was feeling better wednesday, and went in a had them zapped, gone, vanished, amazing!!!! when I left I figured, I felt great, I had a few days to prepare my house for the shower, go to the artistic affaire on saturday and alls well with the world.........NOT!!!! omg allergic reaction to a medication, and Im in bad again til friday, and wondering if Im going anywhere over the weekend!!!! To cut to the end so I dont bore you too much, I did go to the event, feeling a little poor but certainly able to enjoy Kims hospitality, she pampered us at every turn, with the most amazing goodies, and even a 4:00 tea!!!!! There were 4 awesome classes, and I managed to last for 3 of them, my fav teacher, Candance Carpenter was the last one and I just faded out.....but it was a super fun day!!! and the shower on Sunday, sooooooo much fun!! Chelseys girls did an amzing job, and her BFF and maid of honor made her a scrapbook with all thier pictures from the time they met at age 18 months until now, it broght the room to tears!!!!!!
Really a very fun day...
OK I will so try to be a better blogger, Im feeling better, still a little sore, but Im waiting to feel better so I can enjoy this time off, first time I havent worked in, oh, let just say a very very long time.........

SO glad you were able to join us Deb even given your traumatic week. You poor thing -- good you gave yourself some "you" time before the shower which looked equally amazing!
