Let the crying begin....

My silhouette is BROKEN...

Have you ever heard sadder words in your life?

 I know, I know, there are worse thing but OMG I can express how much I


my silhouette and I am finding it very hard to craft without it.

I keep trying to finish up projects and thinking I am just going to jump on over to it and its broken.

You see what had happened was...

The AC adapter came know this thing on the right...the pieces came apart :(

I have emailed Silhouette and they do not sell the part alone without me having to purchase a new cutter...which would be lovely but the husband is not going for that...

They have said that any laptop adapter will work but none of the 4 at my house will work so its off to Radio Shack with my silhouette I go to hope they can find one that will work. Please think good thought for me...I cannot deal with out it...I feel like my arm is missing.

Later Chicas!

About my Blogger Break...

As I sit here on a Sunday afternoon, with this view I thought I should be able to put it all out in words.

yes those are my boys playing on our swing set. Its 2p.m. on Sunday and they are both still in their PJ's. Ben Henry has somehow lost his shirt, but I guess that's ok.

I haven't felt like blogging much. I'm not sure if it was one reason in particular or if it was a combination of a lot of reasons.
I spoke to a great friend last night who told me to write it all down and let it sit if I still wanted to post it then post it. I said ahh the hell with it ...just put it out there...either people read it or they don't. right?

Sometime I feel like what I am writing about isn't relevant to others.
My projects arrant as crafty as others. ( i know that doesn't matter but I wanna be a cool kid deep down)
Sometimes I feel like I am venting more than writing about positives in my life
and I don't want my blog to become that.
I don't know how to balance it all.
School has run me ragged and I gave it my all this year.
(17.5 days left! Think I'm counting?)
I wanted to start my own business with my party banners and acrylic cups and that never happened and I'm a little depressed by that.

Speaking of depressed. I was on post partum meds after Ben Henry. He is now 2. I stopped taking the meds after my FIL passed away. Seeing that I stopped them at that time probably wasn't the best idea, but they say hindsight is 20/20 right?
I don't think/feel I am depressed in the clinical sense but I just think I am normal and that the meds made me more upbeat and able to handle things a bit better. Does this make sense to anyone? anyone? hello? this thing on? LOL

Thanks for letting me get all this off of my chest yet again.
I do have things to blog about-

My sister is getting married and I could do a whole series on Bridezilla vs the anti bride
Me being the Bridezilla she being the anti bride

Lots of showers to plan for her

Eli's 5th birthday- cant decide between alligators or football theme

Later Gators!!

Well I thought I was back...little did I know..the crazy sequence of events would unfold

So we had Ben Henry's Barnyard Bash-
and everything went off great!
THEN, I started with a kinda scratchy throat which turned into full blown Strep throat.
I did manage to get diagnosed the day of my parent teacher conferences and then actually not have a SINGLE parent show up even though I stayed the entire time! Oh well.
Stayed home the next day. Started taking my antibiotics and was feeling better.
Normal end to the work week.
Saturday was getting the boys ready for a birthday and did something wonky to my knee
Didn't think anything of it.
By Sunday night I could not walk. I was in so much pain I thought i was gonna loose it my knee was swelling and I could barely bend it at my knee. I was crying I was in so much pain.
Made an appt with my reg doctor on Monday- she takes one look and says WOW that's a lot of fluid.
That needs to be drained!
Uhmm excuse me!She gets me an appointment with a knee specialist Tuesday at 2pm.
Let me just say that by this time Tuesday afternoon I was in so much pain I was nauseated, have a migraine from the pain, and have the shakes. I was looking for an epidural at this point that's how bad the pain was LOL!
Doc walks in, says fluid needs to be drained. He drains the fluid gives me a cortisone shot and now I am 100% better! I was able to walk out of the doctors office! It was a complete change from entering and exiting the office...
Crazy sequence of events in the last week and a half. I promise I will be back here more! I mean I didn't even get to say that

next post ;)
