Downtime = Digi time!

What a week I have had!? Not all bad, mind you - but so not all good?

I had a part of a filling come out and thus started my week of unplanned appt's and downtime! Not fun! I was on a liquid diet for a few days until I could get in to see a dentist. We do not have medical insurance of any kind - so I am sad to say we have not been to the dentist for way too long. It seems I spent a lot of time at the dentist as a kid - and then, well - having to go back yesterday stirred up nerves and anxiety that I didn't realize I had. Then, it turned out the tooth required more - shall we say - in depth work to fix and I came home last night extremely sore and exhausted. After days of not eating much, and then feeling pretty much like crap - I just went right to bed. Took a couple of Advil at some point, and went BACK to bed again! I think I finally got up around noon today! The soreness is quickly going away and yet I am still hesitant to eat much. The filling is in, but the dentist wants to do a Crown on top of it. He doesn't think the filling will stay long term without one - and I did NOT just go through all of that to have to do it again!? Yeesh?!

Anyway - two good things came from this week:
(1) I am down 5 pounds! Sure - I know it's because I am dehydrated and not eating - so it may not last... but it was nice to see a kinder gentler DIFFERENT number on the scale finally!

and (2) I found a bit of time to play around with some Digi LOs! I have decided to do an all Digi book for our Family Album this year, but I hadn't actually DONE any pages yet! So - with all the time not working out (due to no energy!) and not eating (LOL!) I managed to get several LOs done...

Here's what I have played with so far:








I am feeling a bit better... have hopes to eat real food soon... and trusting God will cover the cost of all this unexpected dental expenses!

Scrap Happy and Spark On!

Terrific LO's Karrilee! I love them and wish I could figure out this digi scrapping. I first purchased Scrapbook Factory then Photo Elements and I STILL can't do a digi page. You make great LO's! :o)
