Boy, July just flew by, at least for me it did!  I've been a little MIA from the blog and crafting world the last few weeks.  I've been horribly ill with an antibiotic induced infection.  I know you are probably thinking --- antibiotics are suppose to cure what's ailing you.  Well, yeah unless it's too strong of one and that's what happened.  So, instead of getting better, I got worse. One ER visit and another antibiotic later, I thought I was feeling better, but I was wrong.  I could at least get out of bed, but I was far from better.  And the timing for it was particularly awful!  My son and daugther-inlaw from Oklahoma came for a week's visit and then we all traveled to WV last weekend to surprise my mom with a belated 80th birthday party.

Just the last couple days have I really begun to feel normal.  And looking back now, I do not know how I did all that I did the past three weeks with as bad as I felt. But, I did enjoy my families and the time we spent.  By the time we rolled into Chapel Hill on Monday evening to drop off the youngest son, I felt like I had hit a brick wall again.  I guess as they say, "where there is a will, there is a way" and once the party was over and everyone was back home, my body shut down for a couple days again.

And I have to put a shout out to my dear ole Hubs, Dave.  He has been a real trooper the whole time, doing everything at home, including taking care of me.  And some of that time was his vacation from work!  I owe him big time!  So I kind of made this card with him in mind.

Today, is the first time I've felt like being in my craft room and it felt good.  I'm rusty, but happy!  I missed it! 

Now, don't forget to link up your own project using this week's inspirational colors for a chance to win a $12 gift certificate to A Day For Daisies Digital Shop!  

We love having you share your projects and play along!

How horrible! I'm so glad you're feeling better & that you managed to enjoy all those plans. It's true that our bodies eventually hit the NOPE wall. My sister & I both have had antibiotic-related infections (from the same drug) and they aren't pretty.
