A New beginning

Well hello blogging world! I've been MIA for almost a year and so much as happened. My job became interesting as we had a changing of the guards, we had a change in leadership, it's crazy for the program director to leave, but our assistant program director changed as well. Needless to say, things at work have been turned up side down, not all the changes have been good either.

My daughter has been really sick and in and out of the hospital, she was diagonised with Crohns disease and has infusions every 4-6 weeks, she can't seem to get into remission. I hate watching her hurt so bad knowing there is nothing I can do about it. We have been to the ER many of times with her in such pain that it brings tears to my eyes.

I have had two knee surgeries, I'm recovering from one as I sit and type this. I had major knee surgery April 3, 2014. I had a total knee replacement. The only problem is that I feel good and want to get up and get going, but i keep forgetting that i have to wait for my right knee to catch up with me.

I'll be off work for almost three months, it's a good thing and a bad thing at the same time, I love being home, but hate being in pain.

I'm going to try and be a better blogger. I have this incrediable scrapbook room and I haven't used it in a very long time. I feel ashamed of myself. I also started beading, it's still hard for me to make cards with my knee (in a sitting postion), it's much easier to make bracelets with my leg propped up in bed.

So here I am, i'm going to make the best of this situation and try to make cards and braceletes, the biggest thingis to post them .... thats where I'm falling behind. Now that I'm nore alert and cane get around a little better here at home, my goal is to post, post and post.

So with that said, I'm off to try and make my first card in months. I did manage to make a little something for my nieces and nephews when they went to Disneyland, I'll post those so you all can have a looksy!
