Can I get a do-over in here?

Wow. It's been quite a week. In progressively worsening order, and ironically, the order of occurance, we had Alexa get Fifth's disease, Ava get the stomach flu complete with vomitting in bed and my dad had a heart attack. Oy. Thankfully, all 3 are on the way to better health.

This would make dad's second heart attack *sigh* someone needs to keep working on getting those arterties cleaner. That would be the dreaded "E" word - EXERCISE. Hopefully this is the wake up call he needs. In today's medical world, you have a heart attack on Thursday night, have an angioplasty Friday and go home Sunday morning (would have been Saturday if his blood pressure was better.) He goes back in four weeks for another angioplasty. For some reason, they don't clear all the arteries at once, no idea why. (Going to have to Google that one.)

In other news...I've completed all of my layouts for the August Smaller than a Breadbox kit from Apron Strings. One of my all-time favorite kits to work with so far. I have also whipped up a quick mini-album with the scraps and one sheet of cardstock, a card and a gift card holder. I still need to finish up the scraps, but this kit has serious mileage to it.

I was picked for "Member Monday" on the A Million Memories blog. Figured I should end on a bit of good news, right?

Wow! I'm glad everybody is doing better, but what a horrible week.

Eek! Sorry about that. The heart attack must've been scary. I mean, not to minimize the Fifth's disease and barfy sheets, but still.

I'm glad to hear that they're all doing better now.
