We celebrate the July 24th in Utah as Pioneer Day. My hubby had friday off so we're having a long weekend. He decided we should treat it like a vacation and do what we wanted! It's been great :) We went shopping at the various fruit stands for fresh fruit/veggies. I went to Michaels and bought a couple of stamp sets and a Martha Stewart edge puncher (floral lace) We ended up friday at Johnny Carenos (spelt wrong hehe) for dinner. It was a fabulous day. We drove around, bought stuff, went to places we haven't been for a couple of years and enjoyed ourselves.
Saturday morning I slept in and my hunny went grocery shopping. Have I told you how lucky and fortunate I am? My hubby does the grocery shopping and cooks dinner!! I have neuropathy, depression and diabetes. It's been a challenge the last year or so. The neuropathy started about a year ago with burning and tingling in my feet. The pain progressed to the point where I could hardly walk. My insurance wouldn't pay for the medication my doctor wanted, so I spent several months in agony. My husband wanted me to just buy the medication, but I wouldn't because I didn't know if it would even work! At the first of the year I started a new insurance that covers the two medications I need and now I hurt less, but one of the side effects is my hands shake! Quite a challenge when card making, but the card making distracts me so I keep plugging along. I started this blog when I was still in alot of pain, wrote about some of it, but deleted it. It was such a downer!
I believe life is good. Things happen for a reason, even if we don't know why. I have been blessed with a wonderful husband, friends and a supportive family. Youtube has changed my life, with the videos of card making and helped me find wonderful blogs to follow and challenges to join.
