Life and other things

Well, I am going to try and do a quick update. It seems that no matter how hard I try, I can't post on regular basis. My Mom is still in the rehab hospital, being discharged on July 4. She will be living with Randy and me and I am nervous. The experience with this rehab hospital has been a real chore, to say the least. Dealing with these people who are only interested in MONEY can really wear you down. I have had to fight for everything, literally. I am tired and frustrated, but I am beginning to see a small light at the end of the tunnel, so I am hopeful. I am still working on my art journal and I hope to get some photos posted today or tomorrow. I am also tangling as often as I can. I am really loving it and I will have to say that it has helped me through this hard time more than once. I have decided to join the The Diva's Weekly Challenge, even though I am starting in the middle. There is a link on my sidebar if you want to take a look. I am going to start a new sketchbook for this and dedicate it to this project. I will be posting pages in the near future. In the meantime, I will keep trying to post on a regular basis, it is so good for me and I enjoy reading the blogs that I love. Take care~~~

The Cute Cousins

Today, I finished a couple of pages in my art journal with Lucas and Colin. I am especially proud of how well these pages turned out. Look for more in the future on the cousins!

Catching Up

Today has been a fairly nice day. Even if I did have to stay at the ER with my Mom until 5:00 am and didn't get very much sleep. Her stroke has really been hard. This one was much worse than the other and she is not recovering as well as I had hoped. I pray everyday that God will help her to recover and be able to live with Randy and me, but I am not sure that will ever happen. I have done some additional art projects as I have been sitting in the hospital and waiting for various things. I have a serious case of bronchitis and a sinus infection right now, and I have not been feeling my best, but I have tried to get in a few things. Here is the latest entry in my art journal: This is Brian and me riding go karts on his birthday. He turned 7 on May 5, and we had such a great day at his birthday party. This one is a photo that Anna's Mom took of her, and I managed to transfer it to my journal: Poppy went over to visit Colin today. I did not feel well enough to go, but he got a couple of really good pics that I am going to put in my journal, time permitting. I really like this one: Here are few more pages in my journal:
