Must Be Genetics

Today, my husband and I had to go for bloodwork for insurance purposes and to get a better rate. Most of you may know that I am a little older than my sweet husband. Not only am I older but it appears I am in better health-lol. My blood pressure and good cholestrol are way better than his. He walks more but I drink more water and probably eat more veggies and fruit. Even though my bad cholestrol is a little higher I lost 10 pds-I really think the scale was off but I will take it. Then just to do a finger stick the nurse kept telling Scott to go drink more water because they couldn't get enough blood out of him-took the poor guy 3x. Scott must take after his Dad's side of the family and I must take after my Grandfather (I told Scott, that my Grandfather had lower blood pressure but he must have raised everyone elses-lol). So, I guess a lot of it must go back to genetics keep that in mind when you are told your cholestrol is high but do take care of yourself and eat your veggies and fruit.

By the way, afterwards we went out for breakfast. I had french toast with butter and syrup and Scott had home fries, bacon, bisquit and gravy with eggs and a large milk-I told him that is a heart attack waiting to happen; no wonder your cholestrol is so high.  Have a good weekend! Enjoy all that snow!!!

Blog List

Well, in less than 24 hours with some help from my technically smart husband, I added 4 blogs to my list. I am impressed with myself-lol. I am very technically challenged. Two of the ladies Jessica and Shirley, I know personally for several years. Modern Sugar's, Natalie, has been such a help in the past with getting me buttons and just helping. Sabriolet Designs is just new and I liked her cards so I put her on, hoping to rejuvenate my creativity.

Between running my Ebay Store, online store, taking a class and life it just seems overwhelming at times and I wish there were two of me to go around. Anyway, I am happy I got this much accomplished. I did get to make two cards for my daughter on Sunday which I am hoping to send in the mail today. I forgot to take pictures though. I am finishing a shelf for my mudroom and a birdhouse for a Christmas present.

Have a good day!

Well, its been nearly 6 weeks since I have posted anything-whew! Just been busy. And last week was even busier. The brand new Cricut cartridge, Chic & Scary made its arrival and I worked non stop to get over 100 customers their cartridge. I have a few left but not to many so if you haven't purchased one, you might want to do it soon. I even have a few Simply Scarecrow and Scandinavian Christmas Cards.

Our daughter came to visit us almost 2 wks ago from college. It was so good to see her. That has been the longest time ever we have been apart. I couldn't stop hugging her. We had a family meal, friends sleepover, soccer game and visit-at least she did a lot in the short amount of time she was here. We look forward to seeing her again soon for the holidays. We do Skype so that is always nice but not the same and of course we text.

Does anyone else have kids in college? What do you do with yourself since they have left?
