Now I Did It

So my 34th birthday was this past Sunday (Jan 18) and to celebrate I slipped on a patch of ice the following Tuesday and broke my ankle (which now has two screws holding it together). So I am going to be off work for at least 2 weeks (maybe longer).

This puts me in a bad/good situation. BAD-no work means no money (SUCKS BIG TIME). GOOD-I may actually take some time to do some scrapping or card creating. I am however, going to have to neglect my computer for awhile as it is just to difficult to sit at my computer desk, try and put my leg up and do all I want to do on here.

So in a couple of weeks I hope to have a few projects completed and ready to share. For now you get this....

2009 Word of The Year

So many words that mean so much, but to choose one to represent me for a whole year, and then share it with the world here, would have to be something that means alot to me right now. Well after much thought and consideration I have decided that my word for 2009 is:


Why Cherish? Well I am 33 and the youngest of 10 children, my parent's are in their mid 70's and I am starting to realize my parents will not be aound much longer so I cherish each and every day I have with them.

I have grown up resounding myself to that fact that I will be still quite young when my parents pass, it saddens me to know that I will not have them around as long as my older siblings have and that they will never see me become a grandparent as some of my older siblings have, or for that matter even be around when my children graduate or get married; so for as long as I have them I will cherish them, and when they are gone I will cherish my memories of them.

I love you Mom and Dad; Happy New Year.

PS *get well soon Mom*
