Valetnines Day swap and a crazy life

. I know I am bad about posting lately. It has been crazy here. Last week I was in the hospital for surgery on my shoulder. They had to shave some bones down that were pressing on muscles and nerves. I was there for three days and during that time the family was sick. I have been home resting this past week and it has been quiet but painful. I don't like taking to many pain pills but I am coping.
 Next week we are heading out on a trip I won to go see the US Ski Team compete in the World Alpine Ski Championships and then to Berlin for a couple of days. I will try to take pictures and post them up!!

Also, I am involved in a Valentine's Day swap with my friend Tamara,  from We don't know who has each other. We are supposed to get a little box and send it off by tomorrow. Of course I did!! I just love the person who I got and enjoyed shopping for her. I sent a heart of candy and a very nice German glass. Over here we don't have a lot of valentines stuff so I did the best I could. I hope she enjoys it. When I get mine I will post what I got and thank whoever it is. I love mail and even sent out some snail mail to a few people!! YAY me, well I am going to go lay on the couch and let the family take care of me.

Pencil Pals

Well the Holidays are over and I am still tired!! It was great and now we are working on getting Grandma home. She has been in the hospital here for a week with an infection in her leg. Its been getting better but still stressful that she is there. On another note, one of my blog friends had a great idea. I miss getting mail and she came up with pencil pals. So, I am going to do it to and if you want to get notes and cards from me and we can send things to each other, email me your address at and lets get it started!!

Holiday Cards

The holiday season is fast approaching and I love to do Christmas Cards. Last year I went through Shutterfly and they looked fabulous!! I like things to be simple and easy, and shutterfly is very easy. I did mine in about 20 minutes, I had to find the right pictures and that what took the longest. As soon as I ordered them they were here in about a week, and for APO that was pretty quick!! They looked great and my family loved them. I choose something that is winterish so it can be displayed until the Spring and maybe this year I will do one for every season. You should go check them out. Its well worth it and if you don't believe me go here and check it out!
P.S.  I have done the photo books through them as well for gifts and people love it. Its more personal than what you can give from a store!

A promotion and a sickness

Well it finally happened, after months of waiting and years of hoping, I finally became the next rank!! WOO HOO!! It felt good and really deserved. Now I am looking already to go to the board again in a few months and keep moving forward in my career!!

Now I am sick, my head hurts and my throat kills. My voice sounds like a guy!! I am trying to keep motivated at work and do my job, buts its hard!! I am so tired by dinner I go to bed. However, there is a light oat the end of the tunnel. I can't stay sick forever.

I want to give a shout out to my friend Kristie. She has an awesome blog, and wrote about me!! Check out her blog and follow, She is a very funny person and makes me laugh even when I am sick!!
