I'm so tired!

Hi my scrappy friends! I couldn't think of a title for my post, but the only common factor in my life lately has been that I'm so overwhelmed and tired these days.

I haven't even visited Scrap in Style lately and I was addicted once upon a time (I have severe SIS TV withdrawal symptoms). I can't wait to see what all you talented scrappers have been working on... I haven't scrapped lately because there's just no time and I so wish I could make some time to scrap. It's my stress reliever. Work is unbelievably hectic, I'm going on three trips this month, and the other two weekends I'm taking care of my grandma. I'm even stressing about the things that I should be happy about. What's wrong with me?! On Wednesday, my BFF and I are off to CKU-Orlando to meet Ali Edwards! Yeah! I'm still trying to get everything ready because I have to trim lots of photos to size for Becky Higgins' Sketches class and organize tons of stuff for Ali's The Week in the Life album workshop.

Here's some happy mail news: Yesterday I received this yummy Kristina Contes kit from SIS... Kristina is amazing! Her style is so inspiring and I'm enjoying the Dare book so much!

Today, I'm taking care of Mami and she's not doing well at all. I've had two breakdowns today because sometimes I just don't think that I can handle this. She's so frail that she almost fell twice and mentally she's hallucinating all the time and seems so lost. She didn't even know who I was at one point, she imagines things and asks for people that are deceased all the time. She can't be left alone either because she made an absolute mess in the bathroom and hallway earlier today and I just have to stay with her and watch her constantly. I guess it's like caring for a child, but worse, because I feel like my Mami is already gone. This is difficult and it's mentally and physically draining me today. I cannot imagine how my aunt deals with this daily. The situation seems to be getting a lot worse...I love my Mami so much. Please keep her in your prayers (her name is Ramona).

Oh, Vane... I can only imagine how hard this has to be on you. I wish there was something I could do.
Hang in there.
Are you going to Barb's tomorrow? Hope so.
I e-mailed you, but I haven't heard form you. I need you to take something to Ali E for me.
Shoot me an e-mail, OK?

Big (((HUGS)))

Wandered over here from Nancy's blog. I love to "meet" new scrapbookers!

That Kristina C. collection looks great!!

And I will be thinking of/praying for your Mami. I can only imagine how difficult that is!

Girl, I complete understand what your going through. It's funny how at times we go through things that are so similar. I guess this is because we understand each other and can give each other a shoulder to cry on. Mami is always in my thoughts and prayers and I hope this trip will be good for the both of us.
