long time away... what to say??

well, i knew i was behind in posting on my blog... just didn't realize it'd been 2 months! it's all i can do to keep up with facebook!! my husband worked LONG outage hours for 6 weeks ... i've spent more time in the kitchen ... and have done several scrap layouts (will upload those in another post).
i've had so much success with homeopathics for my severe allergies, that i signed up to be a retailer for Heel, Inc. they have fantastic (& SAFE!) products -- those combined with avoidance (ONLY treatment for latex allergy and #1 treatment for multiple chemical sensitivities) & following every possible precaution has really improved my health. the frequency of my reactions and the recovery time has greatly decreased. unfortunately, the downside is that when i'm doing well, i end up taking some risks that i shouldn't and then get into serious trouble. had a very bad reaction last sunday... but, it was after breaking my record of successive days not needing epinephrine or benadryl!
family is coming to visit - yipee! my parents for 10 days and our oldest son & his sweet wife for the weekend. the hardest part about where we live is that family is so far away. our 2 grandsons are growing like weeds!! looking forward to our next skype call with them (did our 1st a couple of weeks ago -- it was awesome! we got to spend all our time chatting & just watching them (unlike yahoo messenger where most of our time is spent troubleshooting -- ym works during "tests", but when it counts, it's awful -- we actually thought it was our camera and were looking into getting a newer webcam... then we tried skype & video was great!)).
one of these days (after get caught up with posting my recent CT layouts), i hope to post more info on homeopathy... along with a list of popular products and option for my interested readers to purchase (meanwhile, you can check the company out here at HEEL -Inc.-- i carry many of their products in my retail store. that goal is right next to the one for posting my custom-designed jewelry online. i really don't want to have to deal with an online "store", so not sure how i'll go about it. right now it's all via email, phone & word of mouth advertisting. need to put more thought into it :-)
hoping to have digi-SB layouts uploaded soon, so be sure to check back here for updates.  i've participated in a few OTC's (one-time-calls) for a few designers (2 brand new!) and am still enjoying the WordArt challenges over at theStudio. i also participated in Digitals challenges this month (just HAD to have the bonus mini-kits!!).
