Updating

One last one with the A Kiss on the Chic garden kit:

I paired all my projects this month with brown, I'm into it. I really have nothing to say today. I killed a spider this morning in my scrap/guest room. I didn't want that thing hiding out in my cubicles that I reach in blindly to pull supplies out of. It took all my courage. Thrilling for you reader I know. But boring is good. Someday I'll look back and miss the boring, the mundane, the everyday.

An update on my sister, she is doing very well. Since her surgery to remove a pill endoscopy camera due to a stricture from Crohn's disease, she is actually doing better than before. Prior to her surgery she used to eat tiny meals frequently to avoid the pain she felt by food passing through her stricture. Now, she can eat how she wants and has been enjoying her meals for a change. A big improvement in her quality of life. She's still working, going to a conference here in Florida next week or two. She is understandably nervous about that in light of the swine (H1N1) flu, she would definitely qualify as having "significant other medical conditions" and getting this flu would be a problem for her since she is still on Remicade. But, she has to go for work, can't get her money back and they won't cancel the conference. I advised her to go to her doctor and get some Tamiflu and beyond that you can't live life in a bubble. She knows that. Thank you for all your prayers for her. Please say a little one that she doesn't get this flu on her trip.

It might finally stop raining today. That would be so good. I'm having a miserable time photographing layouts due to the weather. Happy Wednesday, until tomorrow.

Checking blogs for the first time in 10 days or so, and so glad to get your update on your sister! Sounds like things are going well. I'm a bit of a freak about flu issues, and they make me so nervous, so I have so much respect for her to go to Florida under these conditions. Love your projects! Sounds like a great decision for you about putting off looking at houses. I'm also encouraged for the enconomy to hear that houses are starting to move in your community! Hope you are getting some warmer weather with no rain!
