My new scraproom, and other fun, and not so fun stuff

Hello! I meant to post this several days ago, however, when I was out walking our great-dane mix on Monday night, he decided to be a naughty dog. He is usually quite good and I can handle him well, but sadly, I am done walking him. Long story short, he ended up pulling me into a chain-link fence and I am fortunate to have not been more injured than I was. I ended up with scrapes and cuts and bruising along my left forearm and elbow, a nice 2" gash in the palm of my right hand, which thankfully swelled closed, so I lucked out on having to get sutures, and a badly sprained hand/wrist on my right hand. Three days later and I am still sore, but am on the way up now, so that feels good. Oh, and I received a nice parting gift of a tetanus shot, which just so happens to contain the pertusis vaccination as well- which didn't hurt at the time, but talk about pain later- ouch!  Another thing- it's REALLY hard to use my left hand for everything. lol It takes way too long to type.

GREAT NEWS!!!! Ashlyn got her ng tube out Tuesday night!!! Oh happy dance! It's such a blessing to see my sweet girl's face without the tube going into her nose and all the tape holding it in place. Her skin is pretty raw still, but a photo is coming soon. :) She still has a long way to go in the recovery process, but having the tube removed is a big step and gives us even more hope.

Here is my new scrap room. We finally moved Emily down to Meghan's old room (which had been sitting empty for 10 months) at the end of May and then earlier this month we painted this room and moved my scrappy stuff in here. I LOVE IT!!! It's so nice to have my own room full of my stuff. The girls and the animals like to hang out in here along with me. Sometimes I just come to sit and think because it's such a happy place for me. We still need to add some shelving in the closet and along the bare wall, but that will be done soon enough.

thanks for dropping by!
