Bad blogger, lol

Ya, ya... no apologies, though. Life just happens, Facebook steals time, to-do lists, husband, dogs, kids, friends, cardmaking, painting... it is what it is, lol.

Still waiting. Yes I am. Have never waited for anything so long in my life. What am I waiting for? The chance to get the little tabby I mentioned in a previous post. By the time I get to "try"... he'll be an adult . The definition of patience: an ability or willingness to suppress restlessness or annoyance when confronted with delay. Are you kidding me?! That so does not describe me, but... I've been, and am being, pretty good [wink].

There are 7 of them, so if one picks up a virus, the rest do... one at a time and one after the other. Stuff happens. He's doing very well and his personality is really developing. Am looking toward the week of March 26 now as the "foster mom" knows I have a weekend away next weekend and wants to give me the best chance of acquiring this little lad, so even if he's "ready" to go back to the shelter this week, she'll "put them off" 'til the following week.

Just as well. Not only am I away next weekend and really looking forward to it (I'm going to the Scrap and Stamp Getaway in Cornwall with Maggie Patterson), I'm kinda "bruised" right now.

Was cleaning out the big chest freezer yesterday. Leaning in on the edge to reach the bottom for the ice and to dry it out. Rolled forward and heard a "pop". Ouch. Yup, probably cracked a rib. It's up high and a little "in from the side" so does not seem to be in a spot that "twists" as much as I've had before (yup, cracked ribs once-upon-a-time when I went down a slide that was more like a log chute with my young son. Kinda narrowed out a bit too much for an adult, lol - that was a bad one). However, it is limiting my bending and definitely felt whenever I change position. So... to have had a little kitten this weekend would've been a little "uncomfortable".

Guess things happen for a reason.

Had a great time at my Stampin' Up Team Meeting last weekend. I provided the demo and the girls really enjoyed it. My upline even published me, lol. I love cards that "do" something and they don't seem to do a lot of these so I have a new audience [grin].
