Hi ya'll hope this post finds ya in GREAT spirits!
Well I must start this post off with the bestest news!!!!!!
We finally got into the Dr. with Jess. Before we even went Jess was feeling a lot better. Outside of some arm and a little head pain once in awhile.Nothing as bad as it had been. The Dr. believes the reason his arm is troubling him is due to bruising beneath the muscle which makes sense. Our floor is laminate flooring laid over a concrete slab. So when he fell he hit a concrete sub floor pretty hard. She also thinks that he more than likely had a concussion and that was what caused the headaches and blurred vision along with being dehydrated. Again hitting his head on the hard floor I'm sure it probably did cause some of his headaches. As to why the episode happened in the first place.....she said that fainting can be caused by many reasons. She did agree with the ER Dr. that it was probably caused by the dehydration. I still wish they would let us get an mri but since Jess says he feels much better and the Dr. sees no reason for further testing now......I will just continue to pray for continued good health. Thank you all soooooooo much for your prayers. It really meant the world to our whole family.
Over the weekend we had our god babies again. I just love it when they come for the weekend. We had temporary custody of Stephanie for almost a whole year so she loves to come out and stay. I call her my lil crafter. Hubbs and I cut some plywood and began building a saltbox house. It stands 4 foot tall and is almost a foot wide. We still hafta' cut out the windows and door and a circle in the back to put in a light. Hoping to get it finished up this
weekend. Here's a few pics of it.
Not too bad for our first attempt. Can't wait to get it done!
We also made another shelf to put above the door in our living room. Ohhhh and I got one wall in there painted before I tuckered out.So adding that to my to do list for the weekend. I think my honey do list is a lil longer than my honeys to do list! Hmmm wonder how that happened lol.
Here's a pic of my newest shelf.
Steph took the scraps from the plywood we cut for the saltbox house and put her imagination to use. Look what she made!
She had to have a lil help starting the nails but then she hammered away the rest of it by herself. I said ohhhh Steph your bird house is beautiful.....and she says it's not a house it's a Bird Motel Don't you see there's 3 windows lol....She even took a scrap of wood and used wood glue to make a stand on the back so it will stand upright by itself. I forgot to get a pic of the back darn! Not a bad job for a 9 year old. Then she wanted to paper craft so we got some of the paper craftin' stuff out and this is what she cane up with. The 2nd pic brought tears to my eyes,,,,,
If you click the pic it should open bigger if you can't read it.......
Now that I have my craft space, the kids can really have some fun creating stuff!!!! It took several days of sortin' and organizin' storage bins. I didn't think I was ever going to get it all done ! With a little hard work and breakin' a sweat a few times.......I finally got it all done. Whewwww .....Soooooooo without further ado here are a few pics of my craftin' space.......
The white shelf at the end of the table I got for free from work.The branch manager had 6 of them that were going to be thrown away so I took 2 of them.They work perfect at each end of the countertop. I need to find another sign like the Dream Sign to hang on the other door to balance it out. The great thing about having my space here is I can look to the right and there is the living room. I can watch t.v. while craftin' or talk with the family. If I look to the left there is the dinning room. I can talk with Jess when he's doin' homework. I can also let the god babies craft on the table and be right by them craftin' too. I really need to organize the countertop area a little better. I have a lil tooooooo much stuff in the way! I ran outta space to store my fabrics so I hafta' keep some of 'em in storage bins. The table in pics 1 and 4 is the table I use when I sew. Now that I'm organized I can get back ta' sewin' !!! Yeahhhhhh
