OK here is our END OF THE MONTH/BEGINNING A NEW MONTH CHALLENGE FOR TREASURES TO SCRAP:
I got it off THE SCRAPBOOK LADY'S blog. (she rocks)
What books and/or magazines did I read this month?
I read alot of "I love you stinky face" to Bella (one of her FAVORITE books) I read alot of Joyce Meyer and Im reading Positve thoughts for Positive energy.
What movies and/or tv shows did I watch this month?OK Im a tv addict on some shows. I REALLY like the new show "The Starter Wife" Watched that last night. I LOVED the movie DE JA VUE with Denzel Washington in it. IS pretty gory for my taste had to turm my head alot but it was one of those like a train wreck you can't stop watching it for nothing.
The other one was
Apocalypto (I KNOW I SPEELLED THAT WRONG) directed by Mel GIbson. It is a subtitle movie but I have to watch my movies with subtitles since I cant hear any more. IT was a VERY STRANNNNGEEEE Movie but one that we just couldnt stop watching again like a train wreck. But we scratched our heads going OOOOOOOOk by the time it was over.
Catch and Release- has jennifer Garner in it oh it was sooo good.
I think those are the ones That stood out as good or weird this month.
LOST was SOOO GOOD all the season finale's I watched, Jericho, Desperate housewives, HOUSE, ER, did I mention LOST (LOVE that show) GREYS ANATOMY (wow) AMERICAN IDOL WHEHEEW just knew Jordin was gonna get it!!
What special days did I celebrate and how?
WE got to go to PLAY GROUP.. SOOOO MUCH FUN! BElla loves to play with those kids so much and we have some very special friends there. WE dont get to go as much as we want to cuz well.. Yall all know I don't get to get out alot but When we do IT IS SOOO MUCH FUN!!! SHe loves going and we have a big time.
My nephew also Graduated for school and received a TON OF AWARDS. ADAM I AM SOOOO PROUD OF YOU! LOVE YOU SO MUCH!
What illnesses or health concerns did I have?
Well I dont think I have to mention much about that cuz well YALL all Know I have lupus, and that I ended up While I was working and taking the treatments contracted shingles from it. NOW it will NOT STAY GONE.. we have tried many drug therapies and Im even trying natural stuff now too. SUN seems to be a HUGE contributer to lupus and then the shingels get all fired up. SO I have to either contact nasa for the space suit or just tough it out. I feel so bad for Bella and so guilty not being able to do with her like I wish I could. We have fun though and she plays with her friend eva at LEAST 3 times a week. And most saturdays. That helps SOOO much she loves her Eva to pieces.
What fun things did I do with my friends and/or family?
WE went to play group several times. WE always have fun with that when we get to go.
Played with Eva.
John did go out of town 2 weeks to college station Texas for training.
Mom came some while he was gone.

Jeanette is so sweet. I met her through some blog challenges when I First got my blog and we have emailed back and forth on and off ever since. SHe is an incredible person.
I GOT SOME AWESOME PAGES PUBLISHED! THe pages I worked so hard on a few months ago and almost landed myself in an institution haha for crying so much came through. I had some pages requested for a book by my pal JAMIE THARPE for a book she was doing about how to memorialise the ones we ahve lost but still love. SO she and many friends pretty much held my hand and suffered through with me locked in my scrap room for 2 weeks getting these pages done and THEY GOT PUBLISHED IN THE BOOK!
