Well, another week in the hospital, but things are looking up! Richard's grandma did experience some complications during surgery and she's been in the Critical Care Unit since Tuesday, but she's MUCH better now. She's talking up a storm and she's finally eating a bit. Her color is good and her sense of humor, too. Most of the tubes (but not all) have come out. We hope she will be transferred to a regular hospital room by tomorrow. My mother-in-law is also doing well.

My step dad is also feeling better. He's staying with my aunt and taking some time off work until he's stronger, but we're taking good care of him and praying that he recovers from this very soon... He's been through so much. The last chemo treatment was postponed for now, but he's seeing his doctor tomorrow morning to find out what's next. I know he has a PET Scan and an EKG still pending. Please keep him in your prayers!!!

Me? Well, aside from spending my days visiting loved ones in the hospital and being very tired, here are a few random thoughts so you can see what I've been up to this past week:

I got to scrapbook yesterday with some awesome ladies: Ady, Damaris, Barbara, Esther, Alma and Ana. I worked on my Cocoa Daisy Halloween album and it's almost finished.

I started printing my photos out tonight when I got home, but my printer ran out of ink! Ugh! I guess I'll try to finish it tomorrow (photos coming soon!) I know Esther is dying to see it completed because Ady, Damaris and I have all been working on this album for a loooong time!

My honey bunny bought me a VERY special gift: VIP tickets to see Bon Jovi in concert in April 2010. Whoohooooooo! I can't wait! I'm so, so excited! :-)

I'm looking forward to starting my 2009 December Daily Album this coming week.

I am using the Prima Fabric Album that Ali used, but I'm incorporating some different techniques and embellies. I hope to have a lot of it done by Dec. 1. Wish me luck!

My sweet friend, Esther, gave me a Stampin' Up gift certificate for my birthday so I ordered a couple of items that I have been wanting. The Scallop Edge punch and instead of the Watercolor Pencils I wanted, I decided to try out the Markers for stamping. Very cool.

I almost forgot! I will be at the Scrapbooks 'n' Stuff Garage Sale next Saturday (I believe it's from 10 am to 4 pm), along with Damaris. If you're in the area, please come by and shop. There will be several ladies there selling almost-new and used items that you can pick up at rock-bottom prices!!! You don't want to miss it.

Well, that's all for now... Have a great week!

It's so liberating that the Halloween mini is finished. I need to add a couple of embellies and journal. I hope to take pictures and upload it so I can move on to my December Daily... I'm happy that the family is getting better. I have them in my thoughts and prayers. Hugz...
