Can't get my groove back

Thanks to my peeps that have checked up on me. I'm fine but still bummed out and can't shake it. Nothing is seriously wrong, it's all about someone else. You know the saying, "You can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink"? Well, I can't even lead the horse to water. In my attempt to help someone I have made things much worse and I'm not sure how to handle it.

Sorry to be such a downer.

On a brighter note, the stitches are out and the steri-strips are finally off. I decided I couldn't stand it any longer and took them off on Saturday. I think it is very noticeable but everyone else that has seen it says it looks great. I've had conversations with people today that haven't even noticed the strips are gone. LOL.

Friday, I got my free food from Chick-fila for dressing like a cow and a free slurpee for 7/11 day. Went shopping at two different Publix's and put my new coupon/savings plan to work. Ended up with an OOP of $25 and savings of $70 between the two trips.

Had a day of scraping Saturday at my friend and former (almost...LOL) neighbors house. Had a total of 5 gals plus two new babies and a TON O FOOD. Since we live 2 doors down, my DH got several plates of food that day and a visit from both babies. He very much enjoyed the food and the babies. We gals had a lot of fun talking and catching up & Kissing babies. I also made 8 cards. *** I almost forgot, I used the Plastic Canvas shapes to do my paper piercing on the cards and it worked great. I took the small square one and lined it up on my card & punched away. I'll try to get pictures of the cards and post them to show you what I mean. I'll warn you ahead of time, these are some FUNKY cards. I used the newest $1 stamps from Joanns and they have some crazy designs and sayings. To make it even wilder, I used some really crazy patterned paper. Not my normal cards, that's for sure***

Sunday, quiet. Watched the movie"Jumpers" and after I took it back to the store I cleaned my "area" and read some blogs/coupon/saving sites and basically hung out with my DH.

I got a call from "The Boy" on Sunday afternoon. I've been waiting to hear from him since I sent the card "from his cat" last week. (did I tell you that story?) He said he really liked the card and the picture I sent. Sweet right?? Not all the way, he actually called to ask me to check his DVR to be sure he was recording something. LOL. He did say he loved and missed us...not just the cat. I'm going to try and take him to dinner sometime this week. Miss his face!

Hope everyone is well. Anything exciting?

Til later................

Hey SIL,

Mederma was really good for my mastectomy scar and the scar from where I had my chemo port implanted in my chest. You probably already know about it, but I thought I'd mention it just in case. :)

Hugs,
L.

Glad to see your posts. I've been concerned about you, and was just being a bad friend by not emailing and checking in. Just know my thoughts have been with you...
Glad you're getting together for dinner with your ds. That'll be nice.
Glad the stitches are out.
