I'm Back!

Hello all! Gosh, it sure has been a while since I've been here! Lots of changes have taken place in my life over the last several months. As life goes, some of those things have been wonderful and some not so wonderful. Here are a few to mention:

*My husband & I took an awesome trip to Cancun. We enjoyed ourselves very much!
*After that trip, my husband was hospitalized because he had contracted a parasite while in Cancun and the doctors told us he was within hours of his major organs shutting down.
*We moved this past April. I hate moving but love our new place!
*I recently celebrated my 3 YEAR CANCER SURVIVOR BIRTHDAY!! I am feeling quite well. I have my routine appointment with my radiation oncologist next week.
*Our oldest daughter graduated from high school and is preparing to move out on her own. She is our 2nd child to leave the nest.
*I take care of a 6-month old baby boy several days a week and I just LOVE it! (Nope, I don't need any grandbabies right now! I enjoy this little guy very much, then I can give him back to his mommy & daddy!)
*I've still been decorating, sewing, crafting, scrapbooking, etc. I made a few gifts for my sweet sister-in-law's 40th birthday. She loved everything and I was so pleased!

So, that kinda-sorta fills in some of what's been going on in my life! Thanks for looking!

Take care,


  1. Welcome back!!! Life happens and sometimes there are bumps in the road. I always think, what am I suppose to learn from I a slow learner and constantly need to be tested? Let's pray we have a few less bumps for a good long while!

    Great book for your sister-in-law, I bet she loves it!!!

    Hugs to you, I miss our get togethers!!!

  2. Hi Michelle,

    Bless your heart, what an ordeal. What kind of parasite did your husband have, that is SOOO scary. I'm happy everyone is all better now. Thank goodness :)

    I also browsed your blog, and am SO happy to hear about your recovery, and celebrating 3 years, congratulations on that, I have a true RESPECT for anyone battling cancer. My heart breaks every time I read another story, and REJOICE when I hear happy endings, so THANK YOU for sharing that with us.

    I hope you are enjoying your summer despite that incident, and your kids are adorable, even though they are all grown up, lol. You should be so proud of them.

    Also I noticed you were a NO REPLY BLOGGER HELP , and when I tried responding to your comment, I couldn't. While most people simply won't reply, I really wanted to check out your blog, and I'm glad I did, you are awesome. So make sure to go fix that problem, so that you don't miss out on a huge part of blogging. People love comments, but it sucks when you can't respond to them :( Hope you fix this soon :)
    Hugs, Bella
