LIFE IS NOT MEASURED BY THE NUMBER OF BREATHS WE TAKE, BUT BY THE MOMENTS THAT TAKE OUR BREATH AWAY.

Whatcha' Doin' ? Nuttin' Honey. :)

Hi my SWEET Friends :)

I have been so ill again. I am having numbness all over and keep falling and hurting myself. I feel like such a DUH. Dr wants me to have a spinal tap, but we just cant afford that as our new insurance is horrible (50% co pay on EVERYTHING and 75% on prescriptions ) So, I will wait, I am not going anywhere :) :) :)

My Inlaws bought a Wii and we went to their house last night and I got to watch. They have Two sofas so I had one ALL to myself to lay down and snuggle up in a blanket :) :) ( Oh the simple things that make me happy :) ) Didn't dare play as I could see the remote flying through their TV, lol !!!! :) That wouldn't be good. It was SO funny to watch them playing !!! Bad me :) I think it is funny that people will spend hundreds of dollars on this game to play FRISBEE when for a few dollars they could go and play in the sunshine. HOWEVER, the memories were priceless, lol !!!!! Wish I could have figured out the Video thingy-ma-bob on my camera. I am sure I could have used that film at a later date for SOMETHING I need, lol !!!!! My apologies if YOU are one that has this game, I don't mean to judge. I DO see the positives as it is getting people to exercise.

Miss all of you. I have tried visiting your blogs and have been so slow about it, please forgive me. I will get there :)

I have SO many Valentine things I started one day on a good day sitting here, but they have yet to be finished. I am SO excited as I think some of it is really cute and so wanted to share. Hopefully I can finish them up this week and get them listed. :) :) :) What are YOU making for Valentines Day ?? Don't you just Love this Romantic Holiday ? A day dedicated to the One You Love. And Single ladies, it is for YOU too. Love doesn't have to be limited to couples. :) :)

I thought I would share a few Vintage things I listed last week. Most sold already, but I had been sitting on such great Vintage finds and wanted to share them with you. If you are like me, you Love looking at pretty things :)
Ooops, forgot to list this one, I plan on listing these on Ebay in a few weeks. Could you just Scream over how CUTE they are ??????Well, That is all I am up to these days. Nuttin' Honey, lol !!!! :) Hope to do a tutorial this week on the PRETTIEST, Easiest roses ! Need to wait for when my hands aren't so shaky.

Hugs and Love to you my Sweet Friends :) :)

*****Update***** Sweet Cindy says she never sees any Whining in my posts and that REALLY does my heart good. I Don't feel sorry for myself and I don't want anyone else to either. Life is Absolutely Wonderful. To be able to get up and breath each day is a GIFT. I don't EVER want to "Woe is Me" and if I ever sound like that, smack me :) :) I have posted a few posts that dealt with the frustration of having a chronic illness, because I have had a FEW days that were pretty bad, but My Word, I will NEVER get stuck there. That is a Choice I will not make. If you could be around me in person, you would find me laughing and joking. I am a Big Goof. I talk about my illness because it is THERE and a part of me. It doesn't require pity or sorrow. My Family is frustrated that I am NOT unhappy about it. Like somehow being sad would change anything. I hear the words " You have given up on yourself" all the time from my Mom. I don't believe living my life in a constant state of despair is the answer. YES, I am complacent. So what. You have to LOVE where you are at, even if it isn't where you planned to be. Life is too short. Thank you SO much for "Getting" me :) I Love you all :) :) :) :)

Yep, we're getting older before our time, sweetpea! I fell yesterday on the driveway which I didn't realize was icy. Stayed home from church today. Probably not a good idea but I'm really hurting. Not like you, but enough. Hope you are well soon to have good "creating" days, honey.
xoxo,
Connie

Rhea,
A warning bell went off when I was reading this....are you just exhausted and your muscles just give out?????? This could be serious, I have a cousin who went years without a diagnosis and finally found a doctor that told her she had something called polymyocitis ( sorry if spelled wrong)....PLEASE get to a doctor soon.....I totally understand the insurance thing! I take a treatment for my Rheumatoid Arthritis that is $6000.00 every 8 weeks, before my husband lost his job we didn't have to pay anything. Now our share after insurance is over 750.00!!!! So no more infusions for me.....I sure hope you are feeling better soon!!!!!! Take care.....

Rhea,your post touched my heart. I never hear you complain and I need to learn to do that also. Even though I live in chronic pain also, I try to stay positive that someday they will find a way to fix me. Since I lost my spleen, I have no energy and am tired most of the time, but I keep on trucking. I hurt no matter what, so I try to make the best of life and keep smiling and I pray they can help you also. Our insurance changed also this year, so it's the medical bills that usually bring me down, but we keep on paying them and they are for the rest of my life, so I just don't worry about them. I pray that you have some great days ahead of you. I love seeing your new creations. It gives me hope that I can do it also. Prayers for you Sweet Rhea, Pat

Hello Dear Rhea... Oh I am bit late this time because of my long stayed guests, Its very uncomfortable to hear that you are not feeling well, is this some spinal cord problem? Hope you should recover soon.... You will be in my prayer from onwards...
Just a beautiful collection... specially pots with lavender prints I love them...
Hope you would like to spare a little bit of your time for me sure you will enjoy

Rhea hope you have a few good days when you can get creative again.
I don't have one but I think the Wii is probably a fun thing to do inside as a family/group when the weather doesn't let you get outside. If it is sometthing that brings a family together then I think it is good
