Well Hello

Hi sweet ladies! Oh my haven't been blogging much lately.It started Christmas Eve got soooo sick then around tuesday I felt better Well then friday it came back and I'm just feeling semi better now.But I am sick of being sick so up trying to do some things.It was a stomach bug and hubby kept wanting me to go to the Urgent care well I'm not much for doctors but gave a deadline for yesterday if not better I would call a regular doctor.(we don't go to the drs much and ours retired so we need a new one) Well I started to feel better so I'm waiting it out.It's a stomach bug.I'll tell you if I have to go much longer on a BRAT diet I'll go nuts.LoL I need SUGAR! I just got the Christmas decorations put up today but now I'm worn out so will just pick a little with the cleaning and getting the house back together...The good thing is I Lost 14 lbs being sick.I know most will come back once I eat right but gotta try to find a bright side here..smile.. I've been trying to get some RAK's together there are a few people I think just need a little surprise to cheer them up..Nothing like a little hug in the mailbox..So did you make any New Years resolutions? I don't really make resolutions as it's hard for me to stick to them so I just set general things I'd like to change like try to excercise a little more, slow down and enjoy the small things,not let others negativity effect me,Set more time aside for things I enjoy and try to simplify.I don't think I'll ever get to the last one as there are always a million directions I'm going in and I really enjoy "stuff"..smile..

Not to much going on here.Just wanted to drop in and say Hi and let you know your in my thoughts! Warm Blessings!~Amy

Amy sorry to hear you have been sick. Wow, 14 pounds, you must have been really under the weather. Hoping you will soon be good as new. I so dislike going to doctors also. Take care

Kendra said...

Glad to hear you are doing a little better. It is exhausting. Love the pic at the top of your blog.
That simplify resolution is tough one, especially when you like stuff, I understand : ).

Sorry to hear that you've been under the weather )=
Wow! 14 pounds, that's alot of wt. to lose. Must be a nasty stomach bug. My son works the 10p.m-6a.m shift and he came home early from work at 2:30 a.m this morning saying he was sick. So I have a feeling whatever he has he will be sharing with the rest of us.
I hope you will shake this stomach bug soon. Take care and get lots of rest.

Amy, Here's to hoping that you are on the mend and feeling better ASAP. I can sympathize with you on finding a new DR. mine moved away 3 years ago and I'm still looking for a replacement. ~Ann

Hate to hear you have been sick Amy, no bug here just a bad cold my hubby brought home to me, told him next time he came home with a cold he will sleep outside with the dogs. LOL, Love the pictures you posted, glad you are feeling a little better, sending you a hug. Vicky

Penny said...

Hi Amy -- sorry to hear how sick you've been, and hope you are now finally done with it! I agree with the others.... 14 lbs. is a lot of weight to lose -- must have been a nasty bug. I have been down with a cold and sore throat for a couple of days now -- hope the stomach flu stays away!!

Thought you'd like to know that I have received the most wonderful items from Traci's auction.... the talent and generosity is just amazing!

Feel better soon!!

Poor you Amy Friend.
But wow 14lbs. Not a good way to lose it but I understand looking at the bright side of it.
Hugs to you Friend

Your father is also in my prayers.
Have a blessed day,

Cat Nap Inn Primitives said...

Hey Amy, I do hope you get to feeling better soon..keep those 14 pounds off you will feel much better in the long run..love the photos shared..have a great thursday.)

Angie Berry said...

Goodness girl, sorry you've been so sick! That's not a good way to lose the pounds (although I wouldn't mind losing that much + more). I'm with you... gotta have that sugar!

I don't make resolutions because I can't keep them and I hate feeling like a failure. I am going to start doing RAK's though. You and Linda have inspired me in that area. I already know where I want to start... it's like God put in my heart who needs that hug in the mailbox. I think it's gonna be a fun year, I'm looking forward to it!

Hope you are feeling better soon and back to creating and crafting~

Ellie's Country Accents said...

Amy, I hope you feel better soon. Hard way to loose 14 pounds. Hope you can keep it off. My prayers are with you.

Bear Hugs & Blessings~Karen

Raymond Homestead said...

I haven't been blogging much lately either. There sure has been a lot of sickness going around. Hope you are feeling better every day!

Lynn said...

Oh NO, The bug has got a lot of this year! I got the crud bug! I have been sick a week and I think I am feeling better and then it comes back. Still haven't got all the decorations down and the house back to normal yet!
I hope you feel better soon. Still praying and thinking of you!

That nasty bug has been everywhere, hope you get to feeling better real soon. Your green crock bowl is lovely, and so are those worn baby shoes. I have a passion for baby shoes.

Primsue said...

Amy, I'm sorry you have been so sick - that's not a fun way to loose weight. I'm praying you feel much better real soon.

Robin at The Primitive Hutch said...

Take it easy my friend so you can mend up fast.
I didn't really make any New Years resolutions. I just made some small goals ~ hopefully they will be easier to achieve.
Prim Blessings

Hope you are doing better today Amy! I myself ended up in the hospital ER on Wednesday night. I had been sick at both ends ALL morning, day and night and finally I said enough. I knew I was dehydrated which I was. So I spent over 4 hours there with an IV and getting a shot for the nausea. Yesterday I did nothing. I did work this morning but did it carefully as my muscles around my stomach and chest area are still sore from the nausea. Catching up with blog reading now. I'm way behind. Anyway, again, I hope you are feeling better and big hugs to ya!!


Prims By The Water said...

I don't want to be sick, but I sure could lose 14 pounds Amy. Hope you are feeling better. (still trying to catch up on my blog reading) and I was not even sick. LOL. Take care, Janice

Tolentreasures said...

Oh, Amy, so sorry that you have been sick! That is so hard and the holidays make it so much worse it seems. Glad that you got your Christmas put away anyhow. Your "resolutions" sound a lot like mine, now only if I could stick to them a week or so! Hope that you feel better very soon!


bettyj said...

Amy, I hope you feel better soon. Being sick is the last thing a "prim" friend needs. I'm afraid I am like you, don't go to the doctor unless I think I am not going to get well. I say this and 2 of my grands a doctors!
