Everybody come together

Wow last week was a trial let me tell ya. I could barely walk, drink, move, it was almost unbearable. Not because I was in a lot of pain but because it was frustrating. I couldn't even sit on the computer more then 5 mins without feeling like I was going to pass out. I couldn't figure out what was wrong with me. I went to the Dr yesterday and about passed out trying to walk up to the office. I finally get into the room after waiting an hour and found out I have had low blood pressure. Its been low since I got out of surgery. It was 101/54 and in the office it was 110/74. That was what was causing me feeling soooooo bad. I had to eat more protein to get it back up. Yesterday i spent the day eating pintos and cheese and actually by the end of the night felt almost 75% better. Still felt a little light headed but nothing like before. Sooo learn from my mistakes right? Today is day 12 and I have lost 20 lbs so far. They also gave me a b12 and b1 shot because of the mishap in the hosp. So today I am trying to get back into the groove of things with a clearer head and a little more energy then before. I haven't even touched my scrappin supplies. Today i will hopefully finish up my rvk pages and post those tmw. Man never thought I would be out of commission this long with this surgery. So even tho most of you said you would like to hear about my journey on this blog I decided I am going to start a private blog about it. I am going to be telling EVERYTHING that goes on with this surgery and including pics. I know there are some scrappin friends out there who maybe considering this surgery and I want them to know what i went thru but its not something i just want anyone who comes surfing on in to see. So if you would like to be able to read this blog that I speak of email me at mariescorner@myctmh.com and i will send you the link.

You know I cant post without posting some kind of eye candy. So here ya go.

I did this for debbee's challenge over at sis. It is a very personal layout. Probably one of the most personal ones I've done. I love this song by Ben folds 5 (that's who it was back in the day) and when i heard it on the radio I knew I had to use it on a page. It took on the meaning of me singing it to me. I know crazy but sometimes I feel like i have two sides. One the happy go lucky everything is gonna be alright side...and the other very depressed gloomy we are all doomed side. That side tends to try to drown the other. Sooo that is what this page is saying. I actually won the challenge and am suppose to be getting a prize! This made the catwalk the week before. WOOT!


This is one that was inspired by my cousin. She kept drilling it into my head that in 100 yrs who is gonna care what we "looked" like. Fat skinny ugly beautiful they just wanna know who and what we were made of. This also made it to the catwalk last week! WOOT woot!


This one was for a challenge I did over at scrap for a cure. It was to use 5 of something on your layout. Its my daughter and her best friend. They are super silly.


My hubby took this pic with my new camera trying it out and i printed it and scrapped. Should never leave them on there if you don't want them shown lol! My hubby is very smart and I know he could do anything he wants to do. I also know he doesn't see that. So that is what inspired this page.

I don't have really anything else to report because I've done nothing but lay on the couch and feel miserable. Thank you all for coming in and wishing me well! It really kept my spirits up! Love you guys!
