I am sharing a couple pictures of my Lily girl because she makes me smile. I can sure use the smile right about now. :)

The first picture is before her haircut. She is playing with her favorite toy. It squeaks!

The second picture is after getting her hair cut. She loves sitting up at the window so she can look out and see all that is happening outside our house.

The last few weeks I have been slowly feeling worse. Between storms, stress of a few personal issues, and hubby putting a lacquer on all the baseboards in the home (smell from the lacquer is really strong) my fibro has been acting up big time!

I also have noticed bruising again popping out all over my legs. Which is a sign my bleeding time is high again. Hopefully the bleeding will not get to bad. I have to be careful, or my stomach will start to bleed again. That takes forever to heal!

The lacquer is very strong smelling, and i noticed last year that i started to feel sick when he added lacquer to places in the home. Bleeding then was impacted also. I have had the worst headaches also. The headaches are so bad that light hurts my eyes.

That all being said I have not really felt like doing much of anything other then closing my eyes and resting. I have been very tired, and sluggish feeling lately. Pain has become worse, there are days when walking and putting pressure on my feet brings tears to my eyes. Needless to say because of all this my mood has been rather low. I have been careful not to comment to much on others blogs for fear of writing something depressing instead of uplifting. I am sure this will pass... hopefully soon, and I will be back to my regular self. :)

Even with the pain, and tiredness I have been forcing myself to get up and move. I have been going to my drawing class. I wont get into talking about the class because at the moment I have nothing nice to say about it. So the rant will wait.. lol any howwwwww...... Thats life i guess.

An update on the new site i am having made to sell prints of my paintings. It is going slow. I expected such. When starting up a new business of any kind it takes time. That is if you want to do it right.

Right now i am working with a printer in getting the colors just right on the first print. I have found a web hosting place that is excellent. They will actually integrate my new site with theirs. They have great marketing, as well as great tools to work with. I am so very excited to get it all up and going! As soon as i have the prints ready i will then give the ok to start my site. I have to run back and forth to the printers which is over an hour away for now, checking proofs, and deciding on print sizes. That is taking time...... I have to keep reminding myself that this will happen in "Gods" time not mine.

That is it for now. I am off to rest before having to call the printers!

Hugs and blessings!

Ahwwwwww! My poor sis, i wish i could be right next to you and hold you in my arms. I am so sorry that you have to go through this, and it hurts me knowing that i can't do anything about it but just pray for you to heal real fast.
The pictures are very cute of lily!!!
I'm sure lily senses when you are not feeling well, which means she snuggles with you a lot, (i am guessing she does). Thank God for our animals!!!!!
On a brighter note, something to laugh about. ( DO YOU REMEMBER WHEN YOU SHUT THE DOOR ON YOUR NECK )...

Love Stacy Brat, xoxo

I so wish I could catch Harvey with his favorite toy. it is a mouse toy he carries it up and down the stairs at night and wany my MRS. to throw it so he can chase after it and bring it back to het to throw angain. If I could catch him in the act and take a photo I'd lable it GOT MOUSE? I know it's a take off of the got milk commericials,by that is what it feels like. The next thing I would like to catch him doing is catnapping on the back of my recliner chair.
that's my story and I'm sticking to it. Hugs and Blessings!

How CUTE is that dog!!!

Tracy said...

I think so toooo Deb.. lol thought it was just me because i love her so much! :)

Lily is a sweetheart! Dogs are the best!

So sorry about the fibro. I know how miserable that can be. Do you take anything for it? I gave up being a tough guy a long time ago and now, if I really need it, I allow myself a pain pill. I have to look up your bleeding disorder - I am unfamiliar with it. I hope that it doesn't get any worse.

Sounds like hubby better lay off the lacquer. I also have a hard time with chemicals but they just make me headachy and nauseated. Sounds like with the bleeding thing you have it worse.

Take care. Sending you love, hugs and pain free days ahead.

First of all, "Who's a cutie?! Who's a cutie?!" Lily's a cutie!!!

This post is so chock full of information and I did not know all of this was going on with you! I am so sorry you are feeling badly and having to worry about the bleeding and bruising. Hopefully there will be a conclusion to that laquer painting soon, as well.:)

How utterly exciting about your web site and proofs and prints! I think this is the first time you have referred to this new venture as the business that it is, and how exciting a business it is! I think you've hit the nail on the head when you say you must be patient in 'God's time.' I think he is leading you in just the way He wants things, as usual with you, Dear Tracy.

I'm so sorry the drawing class is getting you down. Annnd, I am proud of you, that you have kept up with it, despite it being a thorn in your side. Good for you! You know, we all know, that you are talented no matter what might happen in that class! Just so you know, my Friend.
Talk to you soon,

Tracy said...

Tamara thank you for your support. Yes he needs to lay of the lacquer or do it when i am not here! Thing is it does have to be done, so we do need to figure it out!
Hugs and blessings!

My friend Tart! Thank you, Yes i think i started to think of this as a real business when i was okaying prints. All the leg work is work! Well worth the work, but work non the less! It is truly a business. One i am slowly learning. Hugsssss you. And lily is the cutie girl!!!!! laughs.

Blessings my friend.
