It's HHH FRIDAY!!! Can you hear me now???...

I have more than a few insecurities...

I don't know why, well alot of reasons probably, but that's not the point. I cover it up pretty well, at least I think I do, ok, maybe not.
ANYWAY...
I have a dream...
ok probably more than one - there are always the very obvious ones
I want my kids to be happy and healthy
For my husband to be able to realize his dreams
for "Mary", my favorite patient to have just one day pain free
and so on....this could be a whole other post
BUT- I have a selfish dream too
one just for lil 'ole me
it's to be on the Unity Stamp Company Scrapbook Design Team
It's probably silly to say it that way, I mean there are way more important things in the world right now, but as I said, this is my "selfish lil 'ole me" dream...
So, here they are
the layouts I created to submit for a much coveted and I am sure highly competitive spot
I wasn't going to fess up
Due to the aforementioned insecurites...
BUT...what the heck, life's too short
So...I'm letting it all hang out today...
Good Luck to all of the people who submitted...Deadline is tomorrow!
I can't wait to see all the wonderful artwork everyone has made!!

IN OTHER NEWS....



I got my hearing aids yesterday...
I haven't talked about this very much and it's a really long story that pretty much boils down to my fairly recent discovery that
I am a KICK ASS lip reader
pointed out to me recently by a very nice Doctor who stood 5 feet in front of me but covered up his face while he was talking to me...I didn't hear a word!
but, apparently though....for quite a few years there has been a whole world of conversation and sounds around and behind me (especially) that I didn't know was there
I thought Rob and the kids were nuts
I thought I was "selectively listening and tuning people out"
I thought everyone heard "that ringing sound"
and this one's pretty funny...
I returned my Cell phone 3 times this summer because I thought they were sending me phones that didn't work....
Sorry, I wasn't ignoring you...I couldn't hear you!
These things are AMAZING! I can hear everything!
The ringing is gone!
Gratititudes:
1. I can hear!
2. the Air Force paid for my Hearing Aids..THANK YOU!!
3. the opportunity to submit for the Unity DT
4. Chocolate PB Chex mix...this stuff is yummeeee
5. last day of school before Christmas Break!! I'm looking forward to having the boys home and hanging out!
Now, I'm going to go watch Mama Mia...have a great Day!!
