Wow, it has been a long time since I’ve visited this place. There are so many reasons. Family, Illness, Chaotic Schedules, Burnt Out. The list could go on, but I’m back! I’m hoping for awhile. My health is better, my family life has calmed down, and I took a break from the digi life.
Lupus took it’s toll on me for a bit. I am finally seeing some physicians at KU now, and that has made a big impact. It’s amazing what happens when your Doctors know what they are doing! I was also diagnosed with Immunodeficiency Disorder that I do infusions for. I don’t get as many infections now, so that helps. Recently I was also diagnosed with Hypothyroid, so I have been started on synthroid. Waiting for that to kick in.Because of the infections I had to get off of my infusions for lupus/RA, and now I’m taking Plaquenil. I don’t think it helps as much, but at least it is something I guess.
Two of my kids have grown up and moved out. My son is working on his medical to enlist in the ARMY. Joey wants to work as a Combat Engineer. He just received his certification for his EMT, so I am so proud of him! Meghan, my oldest, is working as a CNA in a nursing home. Proud of her as well. She now has my two beautiful grandkids, Zane who is four, and Zoe who is 3! They are the loves of my life. Besides my wonderful, hardworking husband Jeremy. MUAH!! He takes such good care of all of us. My youngest, Isabella, is crushing it as a senior in High School! She is working so hard, and has so many options for colleges that she is having a hard time trying to narrow one down! super proud!
I am so ready to be scrapping again! I needed the break. I was on too many teams. I had a huge fall out with my partner in my store. I hated that ended badly. We put so much work into that! Anyway, so happy to be back on a team again! Don’t know if I’ll Design again, but I have too many pictures of those grandbabies to scrap! Glad for the opportunity to get back in the game.
