Hi everybody!

We're having my daughter's 16th birthday party this weekend with a lot of family and friends and it has made me want to take on some extra house projects to get it party ready. So, I'm taking some time off until Sunday or Monday. I'll be keeping an eye on Etsy but other than that not around much. (I don't think, you never know) Now, this is not going to be a Super Sweet 16 caliber party (like the TV show) but thought I would do some extra cleaning, yard work, and tidying up.

Already started some new pieces I'll share next week and maybe some other surprises for you! I really think after this week my life will settle down. (I really hope!) Had a pelvic MRI and ultrasound yesterday and will be glad to know it is all clear in a few days I hope (I hate waiting for test results) and had my toe x-rayed (finally) today. It is not a bone spur that is hurting me so much but that means I have the dreaded nail fungus! YIKES! So have to figure out how we are going to attack it. Getting older stinks. I have old lady problems and I'm only 43! But in general, life is settling down and I'm ready! Have a good week and weekend!

What is it that Bette Davis said? Something like "Old age isn't for sissys." That always cracked me up. I'm very happy that everything came back clear, and all you need to worry about is fungus. LOL!!!!! Have fun with your girl. :) xox Pam

Enjoy the party and take some time for yourself, girl! Earlier this week a friend said something about age 'creeping up on you'. I told her in my case I felt like it 'ambushed' me instead haha! Seems that everything started aching about the same time instead of one thing at a time LOL Oh well, I'm still glad to be here and glad to be able to 'play' with art and enjoy what others do as well. Take care!!!

Wow, a 16th birthday party! How much fun will that be? Have a wonderful time with that precious child and enjoy every moment of it.

Oh, and yes, getting older stinks sometimes! Fortunately, we have the wisdom to deal with it.
