The One With The Triple Word Score


I love Scrabble. There's something about it that just seriously relaxes me. While I've been recovering from surgery, my boyfriend has been staying with me at my house to help me. The first few days I couldn't even get out of bed without help (anyone who has had a c-section understands what I mean). I lucked out because James teaches college and was on holiday break...having him around has been wonderful. He's going home tomorrow *sniff sniff*...but while he was here he played a lot of Scrabble with me <3 Which brings me to my P365 photo from yesterday :)

I scrapped a bit yesterday... I am working through Sweet Shoppe Designs' Scrapper's Portfolio Challenges for January 2010. Challenge #15 was to scrap a graphic style layout with no shadows. I had a hard time with it, but ultimately settled on something simple: the journaling reads:
for 3 weeks following my hysterectomy, I made plans for Parker & Naomi to stay elsewhere. 2 weeks of that is upstairs with Tab. 1 week down and 2 weeks to go, she brought the kids down to see me. Parker wishing to climb on me perfectly illustrates why I can't care for them right now. They both miss me, but judging from the way he immediately tackled me, I'd say he's really missing mama. (I really miss them, too.)




That's all from me for today...I'm headed out to run some errands and have a post-op visit with my doctor. Till tomorrow friends, toodles!
