This woman has become a part of me that I didn’t know was missing.

Wow! She’s Alive

It’s been forever since I even realized or remembered I had a blog. It’s kind of crazy how fast this year has gone!

So, what’s been happening?

Hmm… March 10, 2022 … I had subcutaneous ulnar nerve surgery on my elbow. Today, I had another follow-up on it, after doing an FCE. I fou nd out that I need to have an ultrasound on my elbow because I’m still having pain and numbness through-out my arm. So, since April-ish, I’ve been on 2-lb weight limit, and it’s frustrating as hell!

I just want my arm to work without pain like it did before this injury 11 months ago. Yeah, that’s right. It happened 11 months ago and I’m still dealing with it. I’m scared I’m going to be dealing with it for the rest of my life.

Year in Review: 2021

2021 didn’t start the way I expected and it didn’t end the way I expected! But it’s okay. It’s been a wild ride, but I’m stronger, healthier (for the most part), and just ready to begin 2022!

January 2021

January was me trying to get my feet on the ground and settle into some semblance of a routine. I didn’t quite succeed, but I did get some amazing pictures of the animals in my life, and that counts for something, I do believe!

I Am Tired

April is going to be a busy month. I made myself a desktop calendar, and already, I can see the month flying by!

April 2021 calendar, featuring Binx all wide-eyed, Kira just being super cute, and another of Binx making biscuits.

I’m realizing, looking at it, that I should have marked up the calendar (I got it for being a Patron of JashiiCorrin, with modifications just using Photoshop CS and pics I took).

It’s going to be a doozy, though.

Okay:

  1. April Fool’s Day on the first
  2. Easter is on the 5th
  3. Josh’s birthday is the 18th.
  4. Josh gets his first tattoo on the 20th.
  5. He’s off that whole week, as well (18th through 25th, I believe)
  6. It’s the last full month of school. Big deal since I have a daughter graduating this year.
  7. I almost forgot: April 2nd, the kids get their first dose of the vaccine.
  8. Sometime in April, Josh is getting HIS second dose.
  9. April the 3rd, the pets are scheduled to get microchipped.

All right, that doesn’t seem like too much, but if you add in that I have to work during all of that, you’ll see my panic.

Okay, panic isn’t the right word, but WOW, I’m already feeling overwhelmed.

Scrapbooking!

OH MY GOD! I’ve scrapbooked :O I really love digital scrapbooking, and I’m hoping, in December, that I can get more active, back into it! I’ve missed it.

In case you didn’t notice, even the header has changed! :O I figured the theme fit with it, and I went with it!


Kit: Winter Magic: December Monthly Mix
This was, as you can tell, created for my header. There was no template used.
Pics (from left to right): Snapchat Selfie, Bitmoji selfie (it’s changed but I didn’t have one saved), a planner shot, Ethan (with his quarantine mullet haircut), Josh (giving me his usual face), Madison (the day we brought our puppy, Kira home), Binx (our kitten, all proud of himself for getting on the router), and Kira (our Huskytriever, whom we adopted on Veteran’s Day)
