Colin is sick

Colin has been sick all weekend. I think it's allergies. It's hard to tell; he doesn't complain.
He had a slight fever last night & is laying around today. If he's not up turning flips or playing roughly with his toys; something is very wrong. I hope we've avoided these awful flues that seem to never end this year. I know so many people that get over one version to catch another. I've been giving him vitamins all year. He's eating a little healthier.
OK newsflash, he's up & singing. I think he's feeling better. I have tried 5 different medicine, over the counter & natural. Hallelujah something is working. I hope he continues to improve.
I wish I could figure out what he's allergic to but I think he's like his mommy & extremely sensitive to seasonal changes.

Bucket List

I was recently asked about an item on my bucket list. The list of things I'd like to do before I kick the bucket.
The number 1 thing on my bucket list is to 1 day catch up on my scrapbooks. Next, I was asked "Is that possible?" I continue to take photos but I believe it is possible. I believe one day I will have oodles of time to myself. It will be years from now. :)
Another item on my bucket list is to travel. I want to visit Paris, Brazil, Bahamas, & Africa.
Another very important item on my list is to become more green. I hope I'm really old when I kick the bucket. I also hope I've learned to live a very simple life. I want to learn to live without so much stuff & to make the environment better. Currently I'm trying to reduce my need for so much paper. I love paper, especially pretty stationary & scrapbook paper. I do use my scraps so that is a good start. I'm working on a few more things too.
Good blog chatter about scrapping green

I have a wish to meet Oprah or see the show live. I missed one opportunity because I was too busy with my career. If I get another opportunity I will take it.
If I ever return to Manhattan I want to see a Broadway Play.

Managing Time

I was reading about managing time on
This part of the article really inspired me.
Don’t be a perfectionist
In the Malaysian culture, a minor flaw is always included on final products so the gods will not be offended, since only the gods are considered capable of producing anything perfect. Some things are worth perfecting, but often good enough is just that— good enough. What’s more, perfectionism—paying unnecessary attention to detail—can be a form of procrastination.

5 day break

G did so much better this time on his 5 day break from chemo. He & Colin had a good time most of this week. He still gets tired very easily.
Yesterday, Colin & I spent some time outside in the sunshine. It was gorgeous & windy.

Today mom is going to watch Colin while we go to chemo. Thanks mom!
Pray that chemo goes well. It's usually really tough the first few days.

Oh Boys

The guys are home today. It' s Spring Break & G is watching Colin. I asked to speak to Colin & he got on the phone for a hot second. He told me he was working out his muscles w/ the trampoline. He told me he wants to be really, really strong & have some super powers. I asked where did he get that information he sd no where, Can you talk to daddy? In other words he needed to finish working out & didn't want to talk w/ me on the phone any longer.
I asked G was Colin jumping on the trampoline. I have a mini trampoline for exercise. I assumed Colin was jumping on it. He sd no he was laying flat on his back & lifting the trampoline. Then he said Colin was doing push ups w/ the trampoline on his back. Next I heard look out; so I let G off the phone.
I hope they are in one piece when I get home. :)

I'm tired

I got home from the sb retreat yesterday at 5:30 p.m. I'm so tired. I stayed up scrapping until 1 am Friday night & Saturday night. I had the best time. It was wonderful to get to put faces w/ names. We had fabulous food & fun.
I'll post a ton of photos & LO (layouts) soon.

My sister K & her family are angels. They watched Colin for 2 days & nights. Thank you guys so much.
He had a blast & G rested. G only had Colin from 11:30 a.m. until l 5:30 p.m., Sunday.
He sd he was tired about 1 & set the alarm. He set the alarm so he could take a nap & know if Colin opened a door.

retreat prep

G is good. Colin is great. Today's post is all about me!
I'm preparing for my scrapbooking retreat & I'm so excited I can hardly contain myself.
I brought my photos & papers to work to make up page kits on my breaks.
No skipping breaks today!
I've done some journaling ahead of time too. Woo hoo.
My to do list is still a mile long but that's ok. I was out of bed at 4 a.m. this morning.
I don't really need that much sleep. I'll sleep next week.

He's better

This weekend was better than last for G. He kept Colin instead of taking him to mom & dad on Saturday. I had to prepare for this weekend up coming scrapbook retreat.

I really can't stand daylights saving time. I wish they would just leave it alone in Spring & Fall.

Happy to report

I'm so happy to report. G had a much better day today. His eyes are better. He's tired but his spirits are good. He is even been teasing Colin most of this evening. It's good to have him interacting with us. I hope tomorrow is even a better day for him.

He's doing crappy. This week is tough. He doesn't have much energy & has trouble with his eyes. They hurt & his vision is suffering.

I talked to dad about Colin's visit. He sd my mom asked to go & Colin sd only boys & men could go to the woods not girls. Mom wonders when she will become a woman & not a girl.

Fri Feb 29

This chemo session was better than the last one. We went straight home & he went to bed.
He was in bed most of yesterday & is in bed today.

I was at the salon most of yesterday to get my new Spring hair style. I like easy. The days are long gone when I spend 1 hour a day on my hair.

Colin spent most of yesterday w/ Papa & Nana. Thank you Papa & Nana. Mom sd they did boy things. Colin was talking about them getting lost in the woods. I know he drove his little car because he sd it wouldn't back up. Mom sd he didn't let the battery charge long enough. She sd I need to ask papa for the highlights, Oh boy. I can't wait to hear all about it. I'm glad they had a good time.
