- cook dinner (not leftovers). We are having Arroz con Pollo yum
- budget & pay bills
- garage (one box at a time)
- vacuum downstairs
- a load of laundry (if I do a load a day, I don't have to dedicate a whole day to it). How do 3 people generate so much laundry!
- Bible study
- 2 class samples
- lab work
So I am sitting here blog hopping my day away and fighting a serious urge to take a nap when my doctor calls. When your doctor calls you out of the blue, it is never good news. The conversation goes like this:
D: How are you feeling Mrs. Jamison. (This is gonna be bad.)
S: blah, blah, blah. I seriously babble when I am nervous and I am tired.
D: We got your labs back and I would like to sked an appointment (This is gonna be really bad)
S: blah, blah, blah. I don't even know what the heck I was talking about and he must think I am a complete nut job by now because I am just jabbering!
D: Your iron is low. Very low. Have you been throwing up blood, peeing blood or having nosebleeds? (Low iron, that is old hat and so not as bad as I thought)
S: My iron is always low. But I can come in Friday (so relieved)
Turns out, my iron is lower than normal. Could explain all the naps and how frickin freezin I am even though it is 75 degrees in my house. My hemo level is 8.7 (6.5 is considered to low to function apparently and 12-16 is the normal range) and my hematocrit is 28.2 and normal is 36 to 44). Looking forward to getting to the bottom of this so that I can get a little energy back.

I had planned to spend the weekend with my dad & brother fishing but I forgot that the little guy has soccer every Saturday. Every single Saturday. No weekend trips for us. Oh well.
Thursday, April 23, 2009
- He has only played soccer a grand total of 5 times
- He is still scared of the ball
- He will not practice at home! There are too many adventures to be had in our neighborhood for him to waste his precious time practicing. It is bad enough that he has to do homework
- Snakes are coming out of hibernation (see previous reason) and #1 thing on his list is to "observe a snake in its natural habitat" okay
He still really likes soccer but he likes everything else too. He wants to spend his summer
- visiting every state in the US
- learning to speak French
- at science camp
- taking a few art classes
- learning a musical instrument
- last but not least visiting the water park
Short list? I think not but I am going to do everything I can to assist him. We even built a map at World 66. I love this site because you can personalize your own map to show where you have been in this small world of ours.
A is much older and much simpler. He simply wants to get a job!
Me, I would be happy with 2 or 3 teaching assignments a month, living in the same home as my husband and attending college.
Here is my layout for pencil lines sketch 129. I really, really like the way this came out. When I saw the photo, it really hit me that my little guy is soon going to be a big guy. I want him to slow down just a little bit. Soon enough he won't need me to read to him at night or to sew the ear back on dog or even to cook him a hot breakfast.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

This layout makes me happy. This was my daughter in 1996. Why is the picture so wonky you ask? Because she was so scared that she would not let me move away far enough to get a good picture. My neighbors put on a fantastic halloween each year and this was all part of the act. To this day, she says that she was "pretending" to make me happy. Yeah right!
I cut circles into the cardstock distressed the edges with my scissors and than layered in all kinds of goodies. I left the word strips on the background and cut the whole thing into a circle that I placed behind the hole in the cardstock. I had fun with this one.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

What I am doing right now......
- drinking a cup of coffee
- trying to convince my very naky son that putting his hands in front of his private bits does not make him any less naky and that if he wants to let me know that his water is too hot, he really should put on his bath robe. It is seriously hanging right on the door next to his head and his water being too hot is not the end of the world and not something that I have to come fix for him.
- looking at the goodies that I broke down and bought Saturday
- Feeling very, very blessed!

I love this photo of the JFK's crew. I am in that sea of people somewhere with a red shirt on. It seemed like utter chaos when we were doing it so imagine my shock when I got the picture. This was taken in Boston Harbor in 2007. It is a historic photo because this was the last time that the Kennedy would ever visit Boston or anywhere else for that matter. All of the Kennedy family and so many politicians, etc came on board that weekend. Boston was lovely and I am definitely planning on taking the family there soon.

I have been working on a couple of layouts. Nothing fancy, just for me. I love paper piecing and I used it a lot on this page. The sun, the clouds and the wooden sign. Can't wait to put some photos on it.
I have actually been planning my last class at The Pink House with Michelle. I will be doing 2 different class on May 16th. A paperbag album and 3 2-page layouts and I will be providing a fabulous lunch that is so included in the economical price of the class. I will post some pics and descriptions soonest.
I have started on my Inspired classes. I am so good. This will be the first time in a while that I am ahead of the game on a class.
Thanks for stopping by, Have a great weekend!

This is a couple of the tags. I used cuttlebug embossing folders to emboss the photo mats. The butterfly is a stamp that I bought years ago. I stamped it on the background paper than I stamped it again on some scrap paper that I loved the design of. I cut it out of the scrap paper and layered it with primas and bling.
- Finish cleaning the garage (my husband can't believe that we can actually get one of the cars in there)
- Fax PW to CK
- Apply to teach at venue
- Mail baby kit
Not much of a to list.

I drug my carcass out of bed this morning and took Q to the dentist. His teeth are, thank goodness, fine. The 2 front ones were knocked out of alignment but the dentist said that they should find their way back into their rightful place. The nurses informed me that he has big, pretty teeth. So funny, I've been laughing at that all morning. She even called some of the other nurses over to look at them. All of my kids had these huge 20 lb teeth stuck in their 10 lb heads. My daughter, when she gets upset with the little guy, will call him and make bunny noises. How quickly she forgot that she used to have those huge teeth too. Anyhoo. Not quite sure where that was going but I thought it was funny. I think I'm done now and am sure that next week, I will erase this.
As you have probably guessed by my post, I am ill. I have a cold and have been sippin on the Theraflu. The little busted face guy gave me a virus. One of the reasons that I took him to the ER was because his nose started to run clear fluid and than he started acting all crazy and whiney. Well the doctor (as he was looking at me like I was some crackpot mom that ran their kid to the ER everytime they coughed) told me that he had a virus and that it was just a cowinkydink that he got it right after he hit that tree. So he isn't/wasn't suffering from brain trauma, he was just sick. Aren't we lucky. Now I am sick too.
