Been very busy

Well I know that it has been a couple of weeks since I last posted anything, but this month just seemed to get away from me!
Valentine's day--The most romantic day of the year, and we had the biggest BLIZZARD of the season. We didn't get to do much either, because Rob works straight midnight shift, so we just stayed home.
He did bring me this beautiful bouquet of flowers that certainly brought some cheerfulness into the house with all the Spring colours and buds. This little tiger certainly brought a smile to my face. So all was good!
The following week, Rob had the week off, and it started off with a bang! February 18th, we went to see Colin James and the Little Big Band in concert! What an amazing evening. The tickets were a Christmas gift that I had given him, so it was nice to finally have the night arrive.

Rob got himself a concert t-shirt, and I got myself a concert hoodie. (which is ever so fuzzy and warm)

I created this layout to represent the evening that we had, and still have a second page to do yet.

February 19th, was my 41st birthday! It was so good to have Rob home. We went shopping for the day and had lunch! It was sad that I didn't have my boys with me for this special day, but this is what happens when they get older. The part of life that mom's don't really look forward to.
The rest of the week we took advantage that Rob was home for the weekend and we got some much needed stuff done around the house! I tell you, it truly is never ending around here.
This month has also kept me busy with creating new layouts! I have been playing an online game at www.treasurestoscrap.com. You really should come and check it out over there. Lots of great challenges, wonderful gals to chat it up with and of course participating in the game is so much fun! I have been so motivated by these gals and have gotten so many great layouts created that I can't believe how productive this month has been for me! If you get a chance, come on over and check us out. You won't be disappointed!!!
Here are a few more layouts that I created while playing this game....hope you enjoy them!

Feeling sluggish.......

Well it has been awhile since I have updated (again), but I am sure you all know what that can be like from time to time.

Mother Nature finally decided that we indeed needed to have winter weather, and we have been under freezing conditions for about 2 weeks now. Not much in the way of snow, but I tell you, the cold temps are just unacceptable! I figure that if we haven't had winter by now, then we certainly just don't need it. (guess that is why I am NOT Mother Nature) :)

Due to this frequent changes in temperatures, I have been feeling mighty sluggish, and have been suffering with migraines again. This has really begun to cramp my creativity, but I am trying to get back on board. I have managed to get some layouts done this month, which I am feeling pretty good about, but I do need to finish up with my class layouts as well.

My FIL has been in the hospital as well for the past 2 weeks, and well, finally is doing much better. This has all been playing with my emotions and of course, I have been trying to keep things going at home while we all deal with those matters. Before Christmas he had his bladder removed, due to cancer, and had been experiencing some difficulties having a bowel movement, and was full of pain in the stomach. He ended up in the ER, where they did an emergency surgery to have part of his intestines removed. He is now, thankfully, building up strength, and is allowed to have some solid foods back in his diet. We are still praying that he will be able to come home some time this week. His birthday is tomorrow, so HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAD!

Too much going on all at once.....between hospital visits and sluggish weather.....well that is my time in a nutshell. Hopefully things will improve the rest of the week and I will have something more exciting to post!!!
