make a wish

cards 001

Card: Memory box reedbird die, PTI sentiment and background stamp behind the bird is from Penny Black. The background was stamped with distressed inks.

I am entering this into Cas-ual Friday and Our Creative Corner Challenges for this week.

Last weekend I started getting a cough and by Wed, I don’t think I realized how bad it was. By that night my DH had told me if I didn’t make a doctors appt. he was going to carry me in there. I don’t like being sick, but I somehow just keep going, DH works long hours and it’s just me and the kids, and things still have to get done. I went in Thursday and ended up getting a cortisone shot, nebulizer treatment and lots of meds. The shot and the breathing treatment made a huge difference and today my cough is finally almost gone. This a.m. the two little ones had their wellness check up, and they both are great. Pixie is now 22.9lbs and 31.5” and around the 25% for her age. She was not happy with the visit, and screamed almost the entire time. Wyatt was really good, although he told me he did not like being naked, even though I let him keep his shirt and pull-up on. As soon as the Dr. finished with him Wyatt said “I would like my pants now please”.  All in all it was a good visit., and  now I can check that off my list!

Have a wonderful week. Thanks for stopping by and for all of your sweet comments they make my day!


  1. I hope you are feeling better! The part about Wyatt wanting his pants is adorable. I picked up a great picture frame with three little sections and would love to have some new pics (Owens school pics are still hanging up on our fridge). And I have a pile of comics to mail to the boys from Free Comic Book Day. :)
