Trying to keep my head above water :o
Yesterday was swamped, meeting in NYC then my father was admitted into the emergency room. It was Kimberly's birthday as well, so trying to get that arranged. Away from the computer all day answering emails on my phone. On and On. But made it through.

Today is catching up, father is getting better slightly still in ICU, but I'm hopeful. Trying to do my real job and trying to keep up with the forum and shop :o so busy seems to be the state of affairs lately. But it is all good.
The shop is building nicely, we are getting more vendors, had our first sales, and people are listing. I figured out a way to automatically tweet all the new listings on 5 separate accounts so that will save some time and help drive traffic, which is good.

So all is good just busy ;D
Just reading it makes my head hurt! :(
Sending loads of healing vibes for your Dad too!
Best wishes to your father.

Today is going to be a long one...first work then Nathaniel is laying wreaths at a veterans cemetary with the cub scouts.  Andrew's brother is on his way up to be with their dad and I will head up to the hospital later tonight.  Tired and haven't started yet!

Thank You Teresa!

I wanted to put in my HAF shop - wasn't sure exactly how to write it, so I did it the same way everybody else in this thread did - but it didn't work - so I just coppied it from the address bar - and then clicked on everbodies links in their signatures - the only one that works right is Andrews - I only went back to page 3 though - so you may want to test your links to the HAF shop to see if they are working correctly.

Teresa - its cool! 
I guess checking my links is almost like 2nd nature to me - I used to be a web developer. Just glad that I figured it out and could let people know.

Sending prayers and good vibes for your dad Andrew!

I think Kara is getting her molars in and we haven't had a good night's sleep since Andy was out fishing two weeks ago!

Update on Andrew's dad.  They found an abscess on his stomach that was leaking toxin.  He had surgery this morning to drain it and hopefully this is the cause of the blood infection.  He is still on a respirator and on dialysis for now but hopefully we could see some improvement.

As for me...spent the entire morning working in the yard and must say it is looking pretty good!  Still more to do, but there is a bunch of inside stuff that needs my attention now....I think the laundry tripled while I was outside!

Fingers crossed for Andrew's dad!  Laundry is endless!  I am making a doll today.

Glad they found the problem!  Always the first step to fixing it.  E and I are currently with a friend at the NJ wine and blues festival.

Kim-good to know that they found the problem. Keep us informed, okay?

We are going to a neighborhood party later today. Should be a good time.

Please remember our military personel this weekend. Without them we wouldn't have a lot of the freedom that we do. Fly your flag!

Thanks for the nudge about the blog ring!  I finished the doll I was working on this morning.  Do you remember, "I Love Lucy?"  Laundry and housework for me for the rest of the day.
