Poor Baby Blues

when it rains, it pours. I honestly thought we were coming out of this dark, dark hole that we've been in for the last 3 weeks. The hole consisted of all five of us being sick with the flu. The achy, fever, cold chills, night sweats, sore throat, coughing till you die flu. I thought that we had finally pulled through it. But i guess that is what i get for assuming we'd get out alive! Rianne has been fevering up almost every night for the last 3 weeks. We pulled her out of school for a week and a half and thought that everything was ok. She had finally stopped fevering at night and actually got back a appetite that i haven't seen in ages. The last few nights she started fevering up again. We finally took her in to see the doctor, and guess what... my poor little baby girl has a double ear infection, with.... yup...... a strong possibility of strep throat. They didn't swab her because, not only does she have all the previous, but she also has pneumonia. So they give her a breathing treatment at the office, sends us to the hospital for chest x-rays because it seems that the breathing treatment didn't clear anything up. 5 films later and we are back at the docs office to confirm that, yes, she does have pneumonia and that she shouldn't be acting as well as she is for as severe as it is. So, 3 hours later, a trip to the pharmacy and back home again, she is on breathing treatments until this crud clears up and antibiotics for 10 days. We go back again in a few days to see if the treatments are working...... here's hoping they are.

Here's my poor baby blue choking down here breathing treatments

a new begining... and then maybe not

Ok - so i've been sucked in. Into the blogging thing. Kinda crazy... it's like talking to myself and i don't like to be caught talking to myself.

In any case, here i am. This should be fun right? hmmmmm....... we'll see!

Well. This is what i've been doing lately.

i'm actually quite proud of this one... Mostly because what was in my head finially made it out on paper better than i hoped. In fact, it looks better on paper than what it did in my head... and i do have to say THAT never happens!

What i'm really bummed out about it that it was going to be for my DT project for IMME until I was informed that she was closing up shop and I/we were no longer needed. I was REALLY bummed because i was only on a DT for one measly month. Ok - two months if you count the month that we were on holiday hiatus. I finially made it on a DT, my first and only one, and in a blink of an eye, i'm not. It's still really hard to take. I had something to work towards every month... it gave me wind to do something when i just had no ambition. It got me thinking outside my box... which I LOVED!!!! I loved working with certain things and certain topics. It got the spiderwebs in my brain cleaned out. *SIGH* I guess i get back on the horse and try for another DT right? RIGHT... and another one i have tried out for!!!! I'm keeping my fingers crossed... It'd be a great DT! The place is very inspiring. You should check it out:

here's a few more layouts i'm VERY proud of as of recently. These aren't my normal kind of layouts either, VERY rarely do i do only one picture per page... I guess i'm just trying something new. I'm really loving the results though.
