Wow, this has been the worst week!  It all started with Alex throwing up Wednesday morning before school.  He was home sick until Friday when I woke at 5am with a fever of 102.  Yep, Adam and I have strep AGAIN!  And not only the sore throat kind, the kind that is a total sinus-infection-like as well!  Fun!  And Friday was my birthday!  Needless to say we did not celebrate.  I am starting to feel human again, meaning I can actually breathe a little bit.  Anyway, thank you to those of who sent lovely birthday cards!  The boys were really sweet and helpful, we just played Lego Star Wars on the Wii and assembled some Star Wars Legos Andy had.  All in all, a nice quiet evening.  Which was about all I could handle!

Now for the good news – Joanne, from The Stamp Castle, informed me that she has replenished the stock a bit on the website.  I know a few of you had emailed me and said things were already gone – well, hurry on over because some of it is back in stock!

I was working on some early Mother’s Day gifts again and I made these for my SIL, Tiff….I liked them so much, I made myself some too!
