(me with my brood at Animal Kingdom last week
...hubs didn't turn into Flick, he was still at his conference)
Yeah. Another non-decorating post. At this point I'm not sure I'll ever get around to projects around the house. It seems I'm behind in everything in my life, and I just don't have any real creativity flowing, let alone motivation. Just being honest. I have lots of good intentions, but it seems my energies are needed elsewhere this season. I haven't even been able to read your blogs. My reader is out of control :)
Anyway, for the many lovely souls who have continued to ask about my Mom, I went to see her today. She's still really weak, has lost a lot of weight, but improves each day. She's tired of laying around, and takes slow walks around the house, then takes a nap :) She's just using tylenol extra strength for pain, and as long as she doesn't cough or sneeze, she's pretty comfortable. Docs are pleased with her progress thus far. She'll meet with her oncologist this week to get the report on the tumor itself, and discuss chemo.
Here's a picture that she wasn't pleased I took! But I told her my readers need real proof that she's doing better. :) She was just trying to fix her hair when I snapped it:
Again, thank you all sooooo much for your love and concern, prayers, happy thoughts, positive energy, emails, and shoulders. It's just been awesome. Just awesome. Here's another pic of my brave mama....beautiful still.
And for funzies....here's my kids in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Note the wands, Butter Beer, and Gryfindor scarves....yea, we're HP geeks. My favorite was listening to Moaning Myrtle in the ladies rooms.

C.Ray and daughter-in-law Andrea, Ben and Sam in front
One project in the works that I *will* share is my personal makeover....so far, down one size: almost 14 inches and 10 pounds, even with the holidays, vacation, and hospital time with my mom. I'm darn proud of myself. Darn proud.
Blessings to all.....I appreciate you!
