I’m back…

…and I sure missed posting!  That was just awful – I have never been that sick.  I am still not 100%, but I am getting there.  The whole time I was sick and stuck on this couch, I thought about the Octomom.  What if I had 14 kids?  How could I be sick with 14 kids?  But then I would remind myself that I couldn't take care of 14 kids even if I was healthy.  Ha.  :)

Just a quick share tonight.  I have gotten a lot of emails about this page, so I thought I would post it.  I remember doing this layout and how happy I was to be scrapping these pictures.  I just adore them.  The fabulous Jamie Waters took them, which makes them even more special.  I just love my Jamie and Shari. :)

It feels good to know that I have some great friends out there, even if they are miles away. :)

Hope you all have a good night.  I am off to enjoy some mindless TV – The Millionaire Matchmaker.  Gotta love it.

    Glad you are starting to feel a little better. I so agree with you about 14 being too many. She is going to have her hands full. She has been on Dr. Phil the past two days. I just keep thinking of the children. The hospital is making all these demands on her to let her start taking them home. I think the hospital is doing a good job to look out for the care and welfare of the children before just handing the babies over to her.

    Love this layout of you and Shair. I picked up these stamps last time at SYAO. They work so well Bo bunny paper.

    Take good care.

    I am so glad you are feeling better! Nothng worse than being sick with a little one to take care of – don’t know how anyone could handle that with 14 kids. Just not possible!!!! Of course, I don’t think 1 parent can give 14 kids even a fraction of the love and atention that they need! Take care!

  4. Jennifer, this layout is gorgeous!! As is ALL of your work:)

  5. Glad you are feeling better!! :)

  6. Yeah! You are feeling better!
    The worse sickness I ever had was when I had the flu along with my 2 kids.. they were toddlers then, and my husband was out of town for 2 weeks! We were so so so sick…
    WE lived on the living room floor.. we slept together… for days.. If I went to the bathroom they cried… it was horrible…
    14 kids? heck no… I could never handle it!

  7. Jennifer,

    Glad you are feeling better, those sinus infections can be brutal. Great page layout, I love the layered scallops, and buttons. Thanks for the tip on the Nichol blog giveaway, and what a great blog she has.

    BTW, have you heard the talk about the Bachelor ‘surprise’ ending…it doesn’t make our Bachelor look very good :( I don’t want to spoil it for you if you don’t want to know. But if you’re curious, I can direct you to the right place to read the news.
    Also, I’ll be dropping you an email soon as I’m hoping to catch up with you at the Sue Gilman show again this year (if you’re going).
