first i just wanted to say thank you to all of you who left me
comments and sent emails/posted on the mb. it really
meant a lot to have the support of all of you..knowing
that i was not the only one praying for my mom. it really
did make a difference :)

friday she had her lasted about 4 hours; they
removed the tumor, her ovaries, uterus and her appendix.
the dr has sent out samples of the tumor to find out exactly
what type of cancer it was--the masses on her ovaries were ovarian
cancer, but the tumor was something different.
anyways...she is in extremely good spirits :) and has been
up and walking around since saturday afternoon!
and i'm happy to report that i have found a way
to get down there and see her and neither of us can wait!!

i also wanted to send out my condolences to jen gallacher and
family. i'm so so sorry for the loss of sweet joey. hes been on
my mind so much the last few weeks. i pray that he went in



i've got some shizz to blog about later..

my mom called with not so good news. the dr. confirmed that she
does indeed have ovarian cancer. they found a large tumor..and said
that her ovaries are covered in masses. a hysterectomy will have to
be done, followed up by chemo/radiation. i'm just at a loss.
i didnt know what to say to her. shes my mom. shes supposed
to be invinciable. i mean, i know, thats not true. but come on.
shes only 48. i'm not ready to lose her. i can't remember the last
time i hugged her. or smelled her hair. i just wish i could
be there with her...hold her. cry in her arms. have her cry in mine.
but instead, we are crying on the phone. i just feel so..helpless.
i dont know how to comfort her when i am so afraid of what will
so please, keep her in your thoughts/prayers.
i've been in this weird funk the last few days. i dont know if its
that i knew that bad news was coming or what. i mean, i just
feel off. i even went to the sb expo this weekend..and while i did
get some screamin deals--i just didnt feel like, in the mood. it
was weird. and, not only did i get good deals, but appearantly,
i made it pretty far in a contest i entered. last i heard i made it
to the top 10 for the best of show. but um..yeah. no one seems
to know who won or who was even in charge of deciding who won etc.
so yep. thats fancy schmancy.

anyways, i hope to be in a better mood in a few days :(
here is a layout i did the other day with the scrapologie kit. i know
the pic sucks..but yeah. oh well lol.

que hora es?

those were the words muttered from my very sloshed husband last night
as he was being carried into our house by a family member. it was so funny..he just kept saying it over and over..hehe. should've taken pics
of it..but i guess that was the last thing on my mind ;)

so yesterday was easter, did the usual hunt/egg fight..then after dinner
some of us stayed behind to play cards...and whomever lost that hand
had to take a shot of tequila--so hence the husband sitch. thank god
we only live 2 houses away and can walk home! lol i think art was in a
celebratory mood bc saturday was his last official day(night) of being
on the night shift!! wahoo! he is definitely happy for that ..but also
bc wednesday marks the last day of working for that company..and he
is very excited to be starting with a new company next week. things around here are going to be so much better having him on a normal
schedule. the girls and i can hardly wait!

oh, and did i mention that olivia absolutely, flat out refused to join
in the egg hunt/fight? so unusual for her. and i kept asking her why as
she cried into my side...and her response "i just dont want to be happy!!"
oh geez i thought. and i said fine. then dont be happy and we can just
watch everyone else having a great time. about 15minutes later she
was back to regularly scheduled we were happy for that, needless to say. lol here are a few pics of that glorious moment::

and yes..those are my 'girls' and my belly you see next to my unhappy
girl. blech. anyways..i dont know if other families do this..but that confetti you see in her hair is from the egg fight she refused to be part of.
what we do is carefully extract the yolk from the egg, then clean them out..about a week before easter we fill the eggs with confetti and flour..and after the hunt we attach each other with them. it really is great
messy fun :)
i got my april scrapologie kit on saturday and have cranked out
a few lo's that maybe i'll share tomorrow..and i just got the may mid month kit from crop addict..and its so cute. can't wait to get to work on
that this week. or maybe i'll save it for the expo on friday.
i think this is my longest post ever! geesh.
