Road trip!!!

The first three pictures are inside the quilt store in Lyman (I thought it was Urie but it's really in Lyman) Its called Valley Quilt shop and if you live within a 2 hour drive it is totally worth it! They had TONS of great kits and more books than any place I have been. Lots of great fabric and really super nice ladies working there!

The next one is of our group(minus me) in front of the store in Evanston,WY It is called Connecting Threads and is also really cute.
The last one is of me and my friend Carol in front of the same store.

I will post a picture of my haul as soon as I take one lol!

So I am early for tomarrow too

Bright and early in the morning me and my quilt guild ladies are taking a road trip to a little town called Urie, WY to a store called Valley Fabric.
Its about a 2 hour drive East of here and I have been told it is an amazing quilt shop. I will post some pictures when I get back.
Love to all,

So I am a day early

August is birthday month around our house, not only is it my birthday this month its my sweet hubby, my dad, my brother, my adopted sister, my ex sister in law and my nieces I also have a nephew due around the middle of the month. To top that all off its also my anniversary this month as well as my parents.
Whew busy month!
So I thought it was best to change my background while I had two seconds :O)
Have a super fantastic day!

Doctors are like chocolates you never know what your going to get!

Monday I had a terrible experience with a doctor who told me that there was nothing wrong with me it was all in my head and if I lost some weight then I would be fine. Today I had a visit with another doctor (because I am not going back to the first one!) who listened to what I had to say understood what I was going through and while there is no cure for chronic fatigue there are treatments and she was able to help me start working on a couple.

As some of you who have followed my blog know I have been feeling progressively more and more tired and worn out and really like total crap for the last 3 years. Every time I went in to tell them I felt yucky was another round of tests and another round of specialists. I am grateful because we wouldn't have found my heart defect until I had a stroke had I not been going through all of this. I have had sinus surgery, tonsils out 2 sleep studies, heart surgery, I take iron, RLS medication, thyroid meds, anti depressants, and vitamins up the wazoo in a quest to feel like a human being again.
Diagnosing CFS is a process of elimination so it has been a long and frustrating 3 years. I have some new medication as well as a new eating, exercise and massage therapy plan. For the first time in a long time I feel like the doctors aren't saying well its all in your head just stop being tired, get more sleep and lose weight. Well dang I would if I could huh! I am grateful to have a diagnosis and some kind of treatment plan. Will I ever be running the Boston Marathon probably not but by dang I am going to be able to take my kids to the park or go on a field trip with their class.

Thanks for letting me ramble,
