MIA - And the reasons why

Wow, it's been a while since I've posted and I am sorry about that. I hate when I am following some one's blog and they just stop posting. Life has been a little crazy around our house lately. So let me catch you up with what has been happening.

As of last Friday I was laid off from my job, which is depressing especially in this economy. I am trying to stay upbeat about it. Right now I am in the process of regrouping, working on the old resume, stalking Monster, Craigslist and Hot Jobs daily and contacting employment agency's. And I've already filed for unemployment. That was a first for me, I've never been laid off before so this is all new territory to me. I am lucky that I have a hubby that has a great job so that takes some pressure off.

But things with the Hubby aren't the best right now as he hurt his back and has been in major pain for a couple of months now. Last week we had a couple of Dr. appts and had an MRI done. The bad news is that he has 3 herniated discs in his lower back, the good news is the Specialist that we saw doesn't want to rush into surgery and has a few other things that we are going to try first. So keep your fingers crossed that some of things will bring relief to my poor guy.

On top of the back pain, the poor guy ended up working over 40 hours of overtime the week before 4th of July. The overtime will come in handy now that I am not working but I just felt so bad for him. Especially with his back problems.

We did go camping for the weekend of the 4th and had a great time. It was so nice to be out in the RV again. The kids cam out Friday night for a BBQ and then Saturday night it was just the two of us to watch the fireworks. I had the dogs groomed before we left and here is a picture of them in their spiffy 4th of July bandannas. (Sorry it's a poor picture).

Will post a card tomorrow that I've been working on with some new stamps that I got.

Thanks for stopping by...
