Thanks everyone for the well wishes - I think they helped! I actually took Monday off of work to recooperate! It's a sad thing when I can count on 1 hand the number of times I actually took off of work (in 20 years) because I was sick! It was nice to relax - I even got a few cards finished for Valentine's Day! I guess I had a little energy after all!
I also spent a little time on my first "ATC" card challenge - Deck of Me! Toni and I are doing this together! Once a week we have a prompt that we make an ATC card (or 2) for. We keep one and send the 2nd to the other person. It will be a great way for us to get to know eachother better! And it will keep us fresh all year long with new promts!!! I've even vowed to handwrite my responses even though I HATE my handwriting. (It used to be beautiful before I went blind!) This week's prompt was "What I am Proud of..."! Oh Toni, you didn't think I was going to give the whole thing away, did you? You'll have to wait to see my answer when you receive it!!! HA HA! I am ready for round 2! And I have a whole week to go!!!
I have a few CJ's to work on and are getting ready for my trip to Chi-town! I love to visit the family and eat, eat, eat, but what am I thinking of when I'm visiting in FEBRUARY?? I'm crazy - snow and cold - way worse than here! I hope I don't get stuck there - we'll as long as the hot dog stand is open, I suppose it will be OK!
I have a whole day of shopping planned with my friend Marles on Saturday - first to Papersource to stock up on blank cards and envelopes, then to Archiver's! I have 2 gift cards for there so it will be dangerous! And we're taking a card class while we're there too. And then clothes shopping for London. Did I mention Marles is a professional shopper?! I'm in trouble! Better bring 2 credit cards! In between all of this it's Gyros and Pizza - the good stuff (Eduardo's STUFFED) with lots of cheese. (There go the lbs I lost when I was sick!) I'm even going to bring a za or two home with me! After all that I'm going to listen to my nephew Michael play with his band - shoudl be lots of fun!
On Sunday I'm spending it with the family! First Sarah and I are going to go work out - oh a way to shed some of the pizza off! Then I get to see her apartment finally! Then out for another great dinner with the family! I'm sure there will be stops at Dunkin Donuts and Fanny Mae in there somewhere!
So if I don't get a chance to come back online before I leave on Friday afternoon, you know where I'll be! Eating my way across Chi-town!!! Have a great week everyone!
