Feeling a Little Creative

So today I decided to spread out my scrapbook stuff on my bed and do a little scrappin'. Not the ideal place to scrapbook but I really did need to be in bed just in case I fell asleep. I was able to get one two page layout and a single page layout completed.

Well, I had my surgery yesterday and the gall bladder is removed. I was in considerable pain yesterday and slept most of the day. It is now 11:30 am and I am just waking up. I don't know how long I am going to stay up but hubby is taking good care of me.

Thank you mom for calling and checking on me last night... I'm glad you are feeling better too!

I must thank Kathy for calling and checking on me not to mention the box of goodies she sent home with me on Saturday. The kids and dad are thouroughly enjoying the banana bread, brownies and cake! I appreciate you thinking of me and them.

I also must thank Janelle for picking up my kids and taking care of them last night. The flowers are beautiful! I appreciate all you do for me.

Thank you for all who posted well wishes for me... know that it makes me smile that you all love me so!

Doctors Listen Up

I must rant!

Today I had an appointment with a surgeon for a consult.

I arrived 15 minutes early because I figured that there was some paperwork to fill out. I was right. I paid my co-pay and filled out my paperwork. Then his staff informs me that he is running late and they expect him to arrive in 20 minutes.

An hour after my scheduled appointment he still had not arrived. Meanwhile other people who had appointments with him arrived, checked in and was told the same thing I was told. He is running late and will be here in about 20 minutes.

So I went up to the reception desk and asked how much longer it would be... the response was... "we thought he would be here by now". So I polietly requested my co-pay to be returned, which it was... and then the receptionist asked if I wanted to reschedule. I couldn't help it... I laughed and said no.

Now I understand that Dr's sometimes get stuck in surgery. I would have accepted that he was stuck in surgery... that is a lot different than he is running late. Running late to me means that he doesn't care enough to be on time. Now I don't know about anyone else, but I want a surgeon that cares!

I called my family Dr who sent me to this surgeon. I let him know that I was not happy and I did not want to go to any Dr in that office and wanted a different surgeon. So they did finally get me to another surgeon.

I don't understand why Dr.'s think their time is more important than mine. SO FRUSTRATING!

52 Weeks.... 52 Sketches

I just came across this site and I thought it was worth sharing with everyone. It is 52 weeks... 52 sketches... the idea is to use the sketch that is posted each week to create a layout. I'm all for new ides!

Very Cute Idea

I came across this link in an email for Memory Makers magazine. You know it makes perfect sense but somehow I would have never have thought of it on my own!
