Sick Sick Sicky Sick

A nasty case of the sickys has taken up residence at my abode, putting a damper on EVERYTHING. There is this lovely head cold goin around (stuffy head, dry cough, runny nose sort of thing) that made its way home with Esme from school last week. Out of the last 4 days of school she has attended one. And that was picture day. She seemed much better but maybe over did as she kind relapsed Thursday.

Tiny man took up the gauntlet Tuesday and proved that croupe isn’t just for kids under 2.
DH also looks like he is about to keel over.
I, on the other hand, while having a cold, are no where NEAR as bad as everyone else. No idea why but there ya go.
Taking care of everyone and still workin has put quite the damper on my mojo. 😛 Not only that but just got to go over the evaluation left by my now fired boss. Wow. I now know he really did hate me. It really makes me think about my job. If I didn’t need the money I would be out of there. I need to get my heart back into it but after being beat down for a year and all the home bits its hard. We just got a new boss and I think he is just the man to turn things around! I’m gonna try and strut my stuff this holiday season and see if I can get the love back for my job. If I can’t find it by the new year then I really need to reevaluate I think. Work just isn’t satisfying anymore 🙁

But really. Enough musing and on to the crafty 🙂
I’ve got some goodies to share with you all from Design Dollies this week!

The first Challenge was brought to us by my friend Trixie. She gave us this lovely color combo:

And here was my LO

Next Adina challenged us to use 4 different patterned papers from at least 2 manufacturers. This card is one of my favs!

I have at least 4 different manufacturers in there, Sassafras (yellow polka dot), Basic Grey (blue under the sentiment), Crate Paper (the blue background) and Making Memories (the flower and maybe the green, not sure on the green… hmmm). The Stamp is Studio G by the by (yep still tryin to bring that back LOL).

Then lastly I threw down this weeks sketch:

And my LO featuring my now almost 2 1/2 year old son when he was SOOOOO TINY…

*sniff sniff* so tiny *sniff sniff*

You’ve got til Sunday at midnight to combine all three or for just the Color Challenge. Adina’s Element Challenge is due by Monday at midnight and my humble Sketch Challenge is due by Wednesday at midnight 🙂 I hope you’ll give it a go and link it up! Tell your friends. We love to play with new Dollies!

Thanks for stoppin by!

    Oh Kristy! So sorry to hear the whole fam is sick! It seems everyone is! We have been blessed that only a minor cough/runny nose have found their way into our house…and controlable at that w/ meds. So we are grateful. So sorry that things aren't going that great at work. I do remember that feeling when I worked at JCI toward the end. Just a feeling of dread for me many days. I pray you either find peace w/ your new boss' direction or that God has great new things in store for you! Big hugs!
