Got LOTS Done!!

Yes!!  We finally got our living room cleared out and straightened up!!!  I'm so relieved to finally have it looking good again.  Still have things in the dining room and spare bedroom to finish up.  But at least we can relax a little now.

Our new entertainment console arrived on Friday afternoon.  It turned out absolutely BEAUTIFUL!!!!!  I'm so excited to have such a lovely piece of furniture.  It's well made, too.  We are super pleased with it.  Will have to get a photo taken of it to put here next time I write.

We got Kodi's art piece professionally printed out and matted for the Art Show down at MCC.  It turned out beautiful!  We are so pleased with how it looks.  She has to turn it in on April 4th and the show begins on April 9th and runs for about 10 days.  We think that some of the awards may be scholarships and are hoping she will get one.  That would be a blessing.  Here is a pic of her art piece.  You can click on it to see it better.

We are waiting to hear what Kodi's 10 days on the heart monitor showed if anything.  The EKG the doctor did was normal and all her blood work was normal.  So that is good.  He did diagnose her with Fibromyalgia though.  That didn't really surprise me as I have suspected that she had it for quite a while now.  I also found out in reading about it that Fibro can cause symptoms that make you feel like you have heart problems.  Tightening of the chest muscles and spasms, aching and chest pain.  I'm thinking this may be all that is wrong, but with the heart problems Stephen and Kyran have had, we don't want to take any chances.  So we are checking it all out.  Stress and anxiety can also cause you to feel like you are having heart problems.  So!!  Double whammy here for Kodi.  And we are hoping it's nothing to be worried about.

Stephen hasn't felt real well for a while now either.  So he has a dr appointment on Wednesday and we are hoping to get some answers as to what might be happening with him.  Kind of scary for me.  I worry so over him.  And Kodi.  It will be good to know what we are dealing with.  Could use prayers right now for both of them.

I have spent some time doing digital scrapbooking and have loved it.  I hadn't done any for a while so it did me good to be creative for a few days.

Here is Tyler's 2nd place winning Pinewood Derby car.

And a memory page of our Frankie.

Here are three using photos that my sister Hope emailed me.

One of Shane and Stephen R. with cousins Russ and Desiree.

This layout is one I have been wanting to do for a while.  The cute little Cox guys!

Kodi and Jayson celebrating their Graduations.

And one of just Kodi.

I had a lot of fun doing all of these and am hoping to do more over the next few weeks.

My Cuddlebug came today!!  Well yesterday...Monday.  It's now very early on Tuesday morning.  Yes...I'm up and not very tired yet...AGAIN!!!  Anyway, my Cuddlebug came and I'm excited to have it. I'm waiting on all the templates I ordered now.  Got them all at discount prices which made them much more affordable than regular price.  Is my Honey spoiling me rotten?  YES!!  He is so good to me!

On that happy note I'll end this for tonight.  Hope you are all doing well!  Don't forget to look for the simple pleasures in life.  And make a memory today!!
