Happy Valentine's Day

Well, I'm really glad that my layout shows my three guys having a good time for Valentine's Day. On this particular day I was not feeling very good. We had just arrived the night or shall I say the morning of Valentine's Day from CHA. We missed our connecting flight into Lafayette and of course there were no more flights into Lafayette with American Airlines after 8pm. Now isn't that ridiculous!!! Anyway, we caught a flight to New Orleans where we rented a car and drove back to Lafayette. I felt like I was a part of the movie, "Planes, Trains and Automobiles", which by the way is a very old but funny movie with John Candy. Well, before I left for CHA I got myself real prepared by buying all kinds of decorations to have a spectacular Vday dinner for my men. So say the least I think I came down with the Flu, the reason I think it was the Flu is because a friend of mine called in Tamiflu for me and once I started taking it I felt much better. I trudged on to set the dinning room table and sent Jonathan to the local Chinese food place and we had our special dinner. I can't say that I enjoyed the food, but the kids loved eating in the dining room because this is not a place that we eat often. I took a few pictures because I knew that I had bought all this fabulous paper at TM that I had to use. Anyway, sorry to ramble on I am looking at my clock thinking," I'm going to be late for my afternoon classes." So see you all later. Would love some comments.

The Flu Is Among Us

Thank goodness for Tamiflu!!! I guess being around so many people at CHA, the airport etc... I was destined to get the Flu. Though I did not go to the doctor I am pretty sure the Flu is what I have. I have the chills, fever and aches. According to the news this morning 10 children have already died from the Flu and they are calling it The Flu Epidemic. A friend of mine called in some Tamiflu and boy I am actually feeling better today. I am shipping Dax off to my mothers in Texas tomorrow...I am terrified that he will get it. I have cut myself off from the family and am staying in Drew's room all by my lonesome. It is such a sad feeling being away from my family and especially Dax, because he is so young and doesn't understand my being away, to come home and not be able to love and hug on my children. Dax is sending me tons of smiles and it kills me not to be able to play with him. Anyway, sob sob sob...I am sure he'll have a blast being spoiled at Grammie's. Drew always came back with so much stuff.

I can't wait to tell you all of the stories from CHA, it was so much fun. Someone once said, "it's always fun the first year." Well, I know the other ladies that I went with had just as much fun as I and they've been going for years. I guess it just takes the right combination of people. I have not laughed so much in all my life. We worked really well together and I can't tell you the amount of cool new things out there in the scrapbooking world.

Melissa and myself found some really great idea to bring back and teach. And as soon as I feel better we will be meeting to discuss our schedules. I can't wait to start preparing for my next class. Keep checking back for class info.

Going to CHA!!! Well this afternoon I will be leaving with the gang from Treasured Memories to embark on a crazy scrapbooking adventure. I am terribly nervous about leaving my family and my comfort zone. Not knowing what to expect always makes me a bit apprehensive. Though, I can't wait to see all of the vendors and what we have to look forward to this year. I hope to find tons of cute ideas to bring back and share with everyone. Since I will be gone for such a long time, I don't know when Jonathan will ever let me go and crop again. I'll have to let him get in a bunch of golf so I'll be able to get back into the swing of cropping and I'm sure I'll still have tons to catch up on. I hope all have a great weekend and pray for our safe trip and safe return.
