Blog Revival Bombing

So I made it 2 days in a row posting to my blog... yes TWO. Then I forgot for few days. I'm happy to say that I'M BACK!!!! I know, I know, you've missed me. So once again I'll try to be a little more consistant in posting.

The last couple of days have had some interesting twists and turns. Michael sent me a text Wednesday night..... "I have to have my forearm x-rayed." Yep, that's all. No explanation, no nothin'. So I call him.

Me: "What's going on?"
Michael: "My arm's been hit a few times. It's been swollen for over a week and hasn't gone down. They want me to have it checked out."
Me: "Does it hurt?" (yeah, yeah, I know Captain Obvious, but had to ask)
Michael: "A little."
Me: "When are getting the x-ray?"
Michael: "Tomorrow."
Yada, yada, yada......

Thursday I was on pins and needles waiting to hear from him. Finally around 4:00 I text him. Finally hear back from him a little after 6:00.

Me: "What'd you find out?"
Michael: "Having it x-rayed on Monday instead."
Me: "Why?"
Michael: "If they x-ray it today and it's broke, they'll have to cast it. If they cast it I won't be able to suit for Saturday's game."
Oh the priorities......

As much as I wanted to reach thru the phone and take him to get it checked out right now, the football mom in me understands why he choose to wait. Let's just hope it's not broken. I'll keep you posted. I'll probably post pictures.

The BVU Beavers play Wisc., Platteville tomorrow. Go Beavers Go!

Day 2 of the Revivial

Here I am again. Posting. To my blog. For the 2nd day in a row. What do they say? It takes 6 weeks to develop a habit. Let's hope I can develop a habit of posting to this blog in less than that.

Thought I should share with you all a couple of cards that I last night using Scrappin' Sports and More paper and a couple of rubber stamps from my rarely used stamp collection - I was challenged to make a few stamped cards to submit to a publication, StampIt! Cards. So, without further ado, here they are:

This first one obviously is for a graduation. The stamp used for the title is by Wordsworth by Rubber Soul. All paper is from SS&M. The tags are made by Making Memores. I used our local school colors on this one, so I'll put it in my card stash so it's ready to be used next May. I'm getting a head start already!

I'll post my other card tomorrow (gotta save up something to post on day 3 of the new revival, now don't I?).
