Sorry for being so late--I tried yesterday, but couldn't get the thing to work, it just sat there and went grind, grind, grind. It did the same again today, but finally it went!! I tried earlier today and it still just wouldn't go--so hopefully, this time will be the charm!

How are you doing this year?? I'm finally caught up with my teams after being gone for Christmas, and a little extra week or so!! I'm only 4 days ahead, not the week or so I prefer, but it will happen!! We are going to renovate our bathrooms soon--we were going to start yesterday, but decided to wait until it gets a little warmer outside so we can open windows after we paint. I usually get sick from the fumes when we paint! We did get the tile picked out--so at least that part is done!!

QOTD: Do you plan any home improvement projects this year??

well, isn't that funny, this time it posted without a problem!! yeah!!

I do have some news--since I started trying to post this, we've repurposed my scrapbook room to an electronics room for my husband! All my "stuff" is still in there, but I cleaned off the desk and set it up for him to use to learn electronics. That is something he's been wanting to learn for a long time, and up until today, he's been using the dinner table to work on--and when it's time to eat, he has to put everything away. I felt since I wasn't "really" using the room, it was kind of selfish of me to not have him use it!! I hope he enjoys it!! I can still use it when I need to do a paper layout (very seldom!) I feel good about it. He is feeling a little like a piggy since he has the other bedroom for a train room!! I feel a little less selfish!!

Good way to go Deanna. My DH has the garage as a woodshop, but keeps building me furniture to make up for the fact that I have to park outside! LOL
QOTW: Lord I hope we don't find any home improvements projects this year! Last year we redid the floors in the living room, dining room, rec room, foyer and one hallway; so I have had enough. I'll bet he comes up with something though!

A couple pages from me:

Hi ladies - I had some problems with the site earlier this week too, maybe it was all the CHA excitement
Bathrooms can be a pretty major renovation Deanna, hope it all comes together for you.
Glad to hear you're feeling better Debi and will be able to get your meds again.

QOTW: Elaine - I know what you mean about redoing floors, its really a major project. We've been planning to get ours refinished for the past two summers but have procrastinated because we'll have to move all the furniture and remove the trim and baseboard. This year will finally be the year to do it though, we can't put it off any longer!

We still have some work to do at the family cottage in Ontario but that won't get underway until July.

Here's a few pages I've finally got around to uploading. I didn't get any CHA challenges done this time

Trying to get at least one page done a day. Sometimes it is such a struggle! Go figure.

Still feeling pretty stiff but at least some of the pain has been mitigated by sitting under a heated throw (one of my imaginary online scrapper friends sent it to me-bless her heart). It has made a ton of difference. I slept better and longer the last 2 nights so feel much more able to face the day even without my meds yet. Crossing my fingers I can get back on them soon.

I also found out I'm very B12 deficient...could explain the dry skin and the lack of energy. So will be working on remedying that.

I managed to get 9 of the 10 CHA challenges done plus several other non-challenge pages. Deanna you'd be proud of me today, I managed to do 8 pages total. Not bad for a "tin man". If you want to see them, please go to my gallery as it is too many to list here right now.

Tomorrow the kids are home from school due to it being Martin Luther King Jr Day...so perhaps I should get some sleep so I can manage better tomorrow too.
