Heartbreak, Nature and Miscellaneous...

It's been quite a few weeks...

The HEARTBREAK...Markie's girlfriend of 3 weeks, came to the family birthday party and within 3 days "dumped" him. I felt so bad because he even made a bracelet for her one night when he was at my sister's house. A small token. I could tell as soon as he walked in the door the day it happened. First infatuation, first breakup, and the last time it would be his "first". He was so happy at his party....

(face of the not-so-innocent has been scribbled out, just as if Markie would have done it himself, to protect her identity)

To top off the day, he was rushed to the ER earlier, before this smiling picture! All was ok....a real eventful Sponge Bob B-Day for sure!

Some NATURE..... One day while at work, my kids looked out the back porch door and to their surprise....Turkey dinner!!! (Sorry I just couldn't resist!) A Mamma Turkey and 6 of her little chicks - in the suburbs! Let's just say they don't leave little poop either. They climbed on my outdoor furniture and did their business. Markie was the cameraman on this one.

Now, the MISCELLANEOUS....Work has been exhausting - auditors are gone and now I have to get caught up on my regular work.

Markie had a procedure done at the hospital yesterday and fortuately, everything went smoothly. We didn't have one complaint about the service - which is amazing for a hospital. It turned out too that one of our anesthesia nurses actually lives right up the street from us - a little more comforting. I was a "nervous mervous" as soon as I saw the procedure room - it reminded me too much of my c-sections. Markie is feeling better today, with a little soreness he's getting around and just took the car to the store. No baseball for the week will be the hardest.

COMING SOON....Some ephemera pictures to share so you can download them - I just remembered I had bought some years ago AND found them - sooo cool. More about me becoming a "Floozie", some cards and vintage finds.

That's all for now...gonna do some crafting....

Until tomorrow friends....

(P.S. As you can see, I'm trying to change some things on my blog - a little slow - but working on it. I'm too stubborn to "cheat" and download a template so I have to teach myself, so wish me luck!)

Oh, I remember the first time my son's girlfriend broke up with him. I wanted to choke her! It just broke me up inside. Sounds like your house is super busy as usual but I'm glad all is okay! Healing thoughts to Markie!
