Gratitude

Ok...I promised myself that this morning I wasn't going to wait for my med's to kick in and I was going to wake up take them and head straight for the shower....the truth of the matter is the med's aren't working well anyway and every morning this week I have stressed myself out by almost being late for court....thank you God....the angels on my bumpers made way for me and I managed, some mornings by the skin of my teeth to be on time.... I told the judge in my hardship claim that early mornings weren't a possibility for me. The problem may lie in what is considered 'early', my 'early' now is any appointment before 11:00 a.m. is nearly impossible for me to make. It's frustrating to me. I have been an early riser my entire life. 'Early bird catches the worm girl' has had to redefine her expectations of herself. None the less, since I rec. the last round of toxin I have been awake every night every half hour. I'm exhausted. I'm hoping today will be my last day, we are to go into deliberation this afternoon, but this whole experience has been so unpredictable I don't know what to expect. And here I am, visiting the kingdom, waiting again...last night my neck went into a twist that was so severe I considered going through ER. I tried to call my neuro, but I got the after hour machine, all I really wanted was to leave a message for him so he would get it this morning and hopefully be able to help me today in between court. I couldn't bear the idea of the ER or the after hours on call doc...so, I hooked up my electrodes and wrapped my neck in heat. Eventually my neck muscles released themselves but this morning my neck is so sore it feels like some one held me by my head and flung my body around in circles. It doesn't help that I'm out of some of my meds, and I called my primary doc for refill and was promised a call back. No, I didn't get the call back, and I knew I wouldn't because of 'incompetent normal'. That's what I call one particular office person in Dr. M's office, if I get her on the phone I know it will take about four more days of calls before the doc even gets my msg. Anyways, I'm going to call both docs again this morning before court, some one has to help me before I start banging my head on the wall...ugh! But none of this is really what I wanted to share with you this morning, so what am I doing????

What I wanted to share is gratitude.... since Christmas I have come to a great appreciation for how many generous artsy people there are in this world! So many willing to inspire and share, I can only be filled with 'GRATITUDE'. Even on days when I'm not up to creating, I can surf and dream.... Speaking of 'Inspiration'...has anyone seen 'inspire co' ?
Amy has the cutest little inspiring blog.... http://inspireco.blogspot.com/
I absolutely love visiting her site...and she publishes an 'e-zine' that is filled with all kinds of inspiration and loveliness....
In fact...she has a new one for spring coming out after Monday that you may want to check out... I for one am excited to have something to look forward to. Speaking of...what to you think about my new page? Not sure I'll leave it this way, it's not very 'cherry' but at least I'm making progress to unstick myself, right?

And some more love inspiration....images for you to print...how cute is the little lover above?



And even though I haven't had breakfast yet....i so would eat the sundae above if I could wave my cherry wand and make it appear in front of me.



Here kitty, kitty... hmmm...I just had to share the above Valentine....the look on that cat's face makes me laugh...she looks so vicious...this maybe could be considered a passive aggressive vintage valentine? LOL!!

Ok...now that I have all of that off my chest... I can not procrastinate my shower any longer...
I hope you all have a blessed and abundant day today!! XOXO Keke

I've been reading through your latest blog posts. Loved all of the vintage Valentines! I also love that repro fabric. Can you send me the name of it? I'm so sorry your doctor has an incompetent staff member. I think that the next time you have a face to face visit you should mention it. Your calls should be relayed the same day. No one should have to deal with pain without relief!! Take care and have a good weekend!

I hope that you're time on jury duty is over soon. I'm so worried about the pain you're having! The stress of jury must not be helping, I'm sure. I've been thinking about you and although life has me thinking of changing my blog from "Making Clover" to "Staying Sober" as my highly intelligent and suddenly sarcastic daughter thought up, I am feeling a desperate need to be creative. You've had me dreaming up valentines and crafty days for this weekend. Lovely post!

Hey Love! Wow, it seems I've been missing out on so much with you and the rest of blogland.

I hate to hear that you're still suffering with so much pain. Everyday must be a struggle I'm sure. I hope hubby is being good and understanding with what all you go through. I'll be praying that your relaxed and comfortable this weekend with the pain leaving. You've been so great praying and caring for us and I've felt every bit of it. MIL is doing much better and after a lot of rest yesterday I think I am too.

Tons of love and prayers sent your way. OOOXXX's....Tracy :)

Hi! Oh no- Jury Duty!!! ugh!!! I am so sorry that things are rough for you again- I wish I had a magic wand to wave your way to make it all better! Anyway- thanks for the recent visit- this year so far has taken a toll on blgging- I JUST can't do it like I want to. I love all your eye candy you posted and am familiar with the Inspire mag. I want to crawl into the pages and hunker down never to return. Can't wait to see what she has in store today! My fabric collage is put together...in my head. I have not translated it onto fabric yet but I do have ideas and went this weekend to get the material. If I only had a bevy of lves to do the work- or actually do my work so I could do the artsy fun stuff! Take care, My Friend!!!
Hugs!!!
