Hubby Watch 2011 And Other Stuff
Okay, a quick update on hubby. First off, hubby still has a blood clot, but it's a safe one that can't travel anywhere dangerous like his heart or lungs. I want to apologize to those of you who have a medical background, read about his blood clot, and then proceeded to have heart attacks of your own!! That being said, hubby's blood clot is actually 6 centimeters across...in his surgeon's words, "it's HUGE!" So now, his whole incision and blood clot area has gotten severely infected, and hasn't responded to the first round of antibiotics he took. The surgeon has now prescribed the "strongest thing she can, while letting him continue to work." (He went back to work two days ago on very light duty) She marked the area of the redness, and if it hasn't gone away or down significantly by Monday, Hubby is going back in for more surgery :( She's starting to become concerned that his body might be rejecting the mesh patch that was used to repair his hernia, even though she says she's never personally seen it happen. So, if he does have to have another surgery, they'll remove the blood clot and replace the patch with something else...more on that later, if it becomes necessary!
On to happier news! My craft room is SO CLOSE to done! All of the shelving has been built! The shelves and trim have been painted, and now we're just waiting to have the trim attached and the shelving hung! WOOHOO!!!! My desk has been overtaken by all the stuff that will be going up on the shelves, so I've only had a little tiny area to work in...needless to say, I haven't gotten much done! Here's what it's looking like right now:
Oh, for those of you are are still interested or may have missed it, the super cheap prints deal that Snapfish is doing is still valid until the 10th...you have two more days. I've been procrastinating, but I really need to do it!!
This past weekend, I FINALLY got a Martha Stewart Scoreboard! Woot! I really didn't think it was a tool I would ever need, but then I started seeing all these pics and videos on people's blogs of gorgeous card folds and boxes, and figured maybe I better get on the band wagon and get one! I love it! You can't possibly imagine how freaking excited I was to fold my very own envelope and have it LOOK like an envelope!!!! So now, I'm in a folding frenzy! Do any of you have tutorials, or videos on your blog using a scoreboard or scor-pal? I would love to see them!!!
