Card Group #4

Ok here are the cards I came up with for my 4th card group kit. I had a really difficult time with this paper. Not sure if I'm thrilled with these, but they are done. I still have my kit from my 3rd meeting that I didn't get to use because of my shoulder & arm problems. I need to get it out and do something with it too.

Paper: Daisy D's, Bazzill, Stampin Up
Stamps: Stamin Up, Hero Arts
Embellishments: Heidi Swapp, Prima, MM
Not sure who makes the ribbon, crystals or the black brad on the lower right card.

Aging Sucks!!!!

I saw the orthopedist yesterday & was told that my shoulder & arm pain are due to me having arthritic changes in my neck & narrowed disc spaces. I am only 39. How can I be getting arthritis this bad already?! Of course the anti-inflammation meds he wanted me to take I can't due to having an allergy to sulfa meds. I start physical therapy next week and we will see what happens.

I have got to start exercising! My grandmother has arthritis & disc degeneration in her neck and is in such back shape because of it. I do not want to end up in chronic pain any faster than I have to. Guess it is definitely time to look into getting us a Bowflex to use. This diagnosis was definitely not what I wanted to hear!

Time drags when your in pain

I have spent very little time on the computer the last 12 days due to suffering with shoulder & arm pain. Woke up with a crick in my neck 12 days ago. It obviously wasn't just any old crick, because I have been in excruciating pain. Taking muscle relaxer & pain pills and still not getting complete relief. Hopefully the orthopedic doctor will be able to help me on Thur.

Today was the first day of preschool

My youngest started preschool today. It was kind of hard dropping him off after being home together for over 4 years. I just pray that he will settle down some & be ready to start kindergarten next year.
