A few LOs, etc...

Yes, I've been a horribly bad blogger. To be honest my mojo has completely jumped ship. I created 8 LOs in 2 days just prior to Thanksgiving, and haven't been able to complete a single one since...

Of course, that may also have something to do with having to create multiple sample albums at work which take less creativity, but more energy. I've created 8 -10pg 8x8 albums since Thanksgiving, and have 3pgs done for a 9th album... (If you're counting that is 83 8x8 pages in just under a month.) But, while most of them use papers I created with overlays from some of my awesome CT designers I can't actually use them for CT work as the photos are copyrighted by my boss so they can't be posted...

While reflecting on how long it has taken me to post again I realized I never actually came back and posted the LO I was waiting on info from Kol for...

I am happy to say that I am doctor-free for a short while. Things went well enough at all my appts that I have a short reprieve. I don't have to return to the endochronologist until Feb, AND she took me off 1 of my meds. I don't have to return to my PCP until March for my yearly exam, and she's hopeful that if my sugar levels keep trending this way for me I might be able to stop the meds completely (at least for a few years as the issue will never go away). And, I don't have to return to the ENT surgeon until June. Not exactly why I would need to go back there if nothing's bothering me by then, but I'll wait and see.

I got lucky on Saturday, and my neighbor took pity on us... He snowblowed my entire drive plus and my walk to the steps while I was at work. Kind of hoping he decides to do it again because I spent 1.5 hrs - that's right, HOURS - shoveling this morning to make it so dad could pull into the spot Mike left at about 3:30am. I still ended up leaving about 15 minutes of shoveling for Dad 'cause I just couldn't do any more. (And, neither one of us attempted to address the second half of the driveway. Our drive is two cars wide and two cars deep.) I was dripping in sweat and wheezing instead of breathing - mind you I'm NOT asthmatic... We've got btwn 3 and 4 feet of snow in the yard, and the banks are at least chest to head height. Keep in mind it was nothing but grass and mud on Wednesday. Gotta' love the north country! :P Apparently Brenden ordered the snow dumping we got because he informed Grampy on Wednesday after picking up Micaila that it didn't LOOK much like Christmas! LOL

Not sure what else to say, and I'm typing this while the boss is at lunch so I guess I'd better sign off for now! Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!
