F&S OCT 14, 08

Phew, slowly going back to being caught up. Hopefully I will finally be able to start on a LO later today. If anyone has sent me an email but havent recvd a reply, my apologies - my inbox have gone to thousands, mostly junk & I'm feeling too overwhelmed to go through them all, hopefully I can get caught up with them this weekend.

Thanks to those who asked about the headache :) Thank goodness it's all gone now, I get them every 'month' but this time, it started days earlier and ended days later than usual. I think I polished off half a bottle of paracetamol! Mac too has started to slowly go back into more normal hours these past 2 days - sleeping around midnight & hopefully it'll continue, preferably back to 10 or so. If so, I may even be able to start downloading freebies again! It wasnt only that though that made me so short of free time, Mac has been on his 'glue phase' again where he sticks to me like well, glue, everywhere all the time. Pressure is when you're in the toilet with a tummy ache and a 3-yr-old is crying outside the door 'mama come, mama come, PLEAASSEEE!' Oh boy! I'm so far behind on everything it's not even funny, esp on my CT LOs and the filing & journaling for Mac's photos. How weird that back when I was working, I was pumping out a LO a day and now I can barely manage 1 a month!
This is how I've been doing some of my blog posts :)

Love the picture of you working with Mac on your lap. It just screams LOVE! I really don't know how you do all that you do, but thanks so much.
Hugs,
Grace

oh you poor DEAR! It gets so frustrating when things push you behind on your "wants"--like scrapping. But we ALL think Mac comes first, so no worries! We are just glad to see you doing better...slowly.

And my kids all go through that "sticky" phases here and there. And when they do...we are ALL one-handed typers. ROFL! You should see me during crops when Tianna is on my lap. hahahaha. funny stuff.

Anyway, this list is knock your socks off HUGE! Thank you! And for including my templates and kit. ALSO, I need to remember to send you sales info...I will remember to do that.

You ROCK! Glad you don't just delete me. hahahahaha
