A Project and Awesome News!

Take a look at this adorable little eyeglass case I made over for my daughter Tess...whaddya think? Cute, hey?! I'm lovin' how it turned out. Sorry there is no 'before' shot (camera batteries were dead) but picture this...a cat image on the front. Ummmm, let's just say Tess took one look at it and said, 'Mom, not trying to be mean but I SOOOO don't think so!' ha ha (I was quite relieved I had only paid $1.50 for it from good ole' WM!)

So I got out some scrapbook paper, Mod Podge and a few rub-ons to see what I could come up with to please a 13 year old young lady so she'd actually carry her glasses in it. Ah, passed the test...Tess likes it! (Whew!)

Oh, and now for the AWESOME NEWS...I'm tellin' ya, it's SOOOO wonderful! Remember last week when I had to see my oncologist? Well, my bloodwork came back all fine and the chest x-ray was great....I don't have to return to the oncologist for SIX MONTHS!!!!! Wow, is that just THEE best news or what? I was SO thrilled and SO relieved...God is so good!

I'm feeling great and people have been telling me how healthy and good I look, considering all I have been through this last year. (Don't mean that in a vain way - just that I'm much better after being so sick.) The only thing I've gotta take care of at this point is to see my family doctor regarding some heart palpatations I've been having. Not overly concerned about it; just something that needs to be checked on.

I've actually had not one but two haircuts since my hair has grown back, which just seems incredible considering I was mostly bald last March! One of these days real soon I'll have one of my girls take a nice picture of me and I'll share it on here.

Hope everyone is doing well!

  8. Toot Toot! Toot your horn friend and don't feel bad about it. I am glad your hair is back and you are feeling good about yourself. With all you have been through you more than deserve it! I used to work with Cancer patients fitting them with wigs and was always amazed how different their hair was when it came back. Some people's hair even came back curly or a different color.
