Ok this is the second time I have typed this today, my Internet just sucked the last one into cyber space. I had little time to play today because the contractors didn't come till afternoon to pull out the carpet & padding. My card for today is SU old olive cardstock with Sizzex texture paper, vellum oval and then SU pumpkin pie cs. I used a tiny little leaf punch to put fall leaves all over and my Sizzlets dies to punch out 'friends', a little braided cording across the front and I was done. Fast and cute.
Now for my good news! Well I doubt I'll be saying that next Friday when I'll be in so much pain but in the long run it will be good news. I received a call from Lorie at Dr. Ballards office today to ask if I would like to re-schedule my right hip replacement surgery to next Friday, October 9th. I really want to do this since its bone on bone and it hurts like heck when I walk. I had to ask my daughter since I really trust her judgement. Vicki just had her stroke and she really can't physically help me out but I totally understand that. Then I called my brother in Missouri, lets just say that tomorrow I will be checking into short term nursing homes for mother.
I have 3 lists started already of things to do and questions to ask tomorrow while I'm setting everything up. I will not be able to blog for a few weeks but then I know your thoughts and prayers will be with me.
I'll keep updating everyone until I go to the hospital.
Until then God Bless all of you.

Jeanine, first let me tell you that your card is GORGEOUS!!! I love everything about it! Second, I am glad that you are going to get your surgery soon -- I can only imagine the pain you have been in. I've been praying for healing for you, and that the Lord would make you strong as you wait, so I'm really glad to hear that you are not going to have to wait much longer!
