My Trouper

After 7 hours
A trip to the urgent care
A trip to the emergency department
Blood tests, urine tests, CT Scan

The diagnosis is:

Sclerosing Mesenteritis

You say you have never heard of it
Well, neither have I
And the doctor says that
After 12 years of practice
She's never seen a case

We are now home
Meds on board
He'll be sleeping for awhile
No surgery needed at this point

Lots of Research to do
It is most likely due to an
Auto-Immune Disorder
Of which he has never been diagnosed
Like I said
Lots of Research to do...

Considering It All A Challenge

Saturday's Project

Today was predicted to be Hot and Muggy
The temp at 102 and 25% humidity
So, I decided on an inside project
I got up this morning and emptied most all of my jewelry
Onto my stripped bed
And sorted!!!

Christmas Pieces
I am aiming to have 25 pieces by December 1
I like to wear a new piece each of the 25 days before Christmas 
 A Few Bracelets
 And More Necklaces
I decided not to take pictures of earrings and brooches
In the 70's and 80'
Petite and Antique were the fashion
A few of my son's treasures
 One of my most Treasured Pieces
This is the medal that Andrew received
From the State of Arizona
After he donated a kidney to his dad
We enjoyed 7 years and 7 days after the donations
I will never be able to thank him enough
 After hours of sorting
Everything I decided to keep
Was placed in its own space in the armoire
That Mark bought me for my birthday many years ago
I absolutely LOVE IT
 Never enough Rings
 I put together a little treasure box
Of jewelry for my granddaughters to play with
 And then I tackled pursed and bags
All the while
Doing laundry, making sure all the clothes for the week are ready
And linens are neatly washed, dried, folded, and put away
Or, at least the bed is made
So Tonight
I can Rest my Weary Body
A Great Day's Project

Considering It All JOY!!

I Wonder...

I have been wondering

If some of you think

I promise I am still here

And I hope

To be back to blogging

Some Fun Stuff

Very Soon :)

Girls LOVE Beautiful Skin

Disclosure: If any item is purchased through this blog post/site, I will earn a small commission.

As a woman who is getting a bit older in years, I work very hard to take care of my skin. Drinking plenty of water and using great products has helped to keep my skin smooth and soft.  I certainly cannot say I am wrinkle free (don't I wish) but I can say I have fewer wrinkles than many friends my age :)

Recently I have had the opportunity to test a new product by Olay.

Click Here ---->   Olay ProX Advanced Cleansing System

I've been using Olay products for many years but had not tried this cleaning system.  I love the super soft brush bristles which gently exfoliate the dead cells of the surface of the skin to uncover the newer cells underneath.  I cleanser is light, translucent with tiny exfoliating crystals and has little to no scent. Using this product has helped me to maintain a clean and fresh look to my skin.

I happy to let you in on a little secret, between now and August 31, 2012, if you go the site above and make any purchase you will receive a 10% discount on any product, plus free shipping for orders over $25.00.  If you already use Olay products, of which they have many, it's a great time to stock up and get your 10% discount. If you haven't used Olay products, well, it's a perfect time to try something new.  And it's NOT just Olay products, P&G is also offering some super Olympic Themed bundles and deals as P&G is a big Olympic sponsor, you never know what great deal you might find,

I'd love to hear what you think about Olay products and what you might like to try.  Hop on over to Olay to check out what they offer and then come back by here and leave a comment.
