I know, I know... It's been weeks. Believe me, I know. And I will tell  you, I can think of about ten thousand blog posts that I would have rather written in this span of time than what I've actually been up to for the last week of my hiatus. 

The first week and a half are on me - just laying low, being busy with other things. Working on SRM's Winter 2013 CHA workshop, helping with Scrapbook Grammie's booth at the Expo in Ontario, and working on getting a serious toothache taken care of.

This last week I have been back and forth between home, work and the hospital in Martinez. My sis Kate was admitted last Saturday for complications of Crohn's Disease and this has been a hell of a week for her, which has culminated with the resounding conclusion from every member of her medical team that her case is the worst they've ever seen.  And because of the severity of her condition, her fiance, my mom, or myself has been with her 24/7. 

We're talking crazy amounts of pain medication, nothing to eat for a week, pic line, blood tests 15 times daily, and an immune system that is severely compromised and about to get worse with the treatment plan on the table. And that's not including the less flattering parts of her stay. So yeah.

Basically, this is my way of saying that aside from a couple of pre-scheduled posts, I will continue to be MIA until she is out of the woods and safely back at home.

Hope I "see" you soon!

Is it terribly pathetic that I've never actually flown completely by myself before? I'm almost 28...
I take it from the silence that that's a YES.
Well, what can I say? I've just always had company!?
But tomorrow is the day. This girls flies alone.
And then this girl gets to help set up the Scrapbook Grammie booth at the Scrapbook EXPO in Ontario, California. I usually just work the Northern California shows, but I'm super excited to get to go down and help out the Gram!
If you're in the area, be sure to stop by and say hi!!
