It's a new ME!

I finally got my hair cut today after several months of doing nothing with it. I let it grow out when I was pregnant and then didn't have time to deal with it until now. It's layered all over...some areas requiring 4" of hair to be cut off (and this is a LOT for me, since I usually keep my hair short).

The new me:

My husband and I met eleven years ago today. I created this two-page layout for Ready, Set, Create! (paper crafting e-zine) that highlights "My Lucky Day".





Happy Anniversary Bonz! I love you.

Only FIVE DAYS before my baby basket is removed. I've been dealing with endometriosis since the age of sixteen and the horrible effects from it. After seven laparoscopies and numerous medications, I'm done. DONE DONE DONE. The uterus is being evicted and I couldn't be happier. It's given me three beautiful children and I no longer need its services or its pain. Goodbye sweet Utes. I'll miss you...okay, not so much.

I leave you with a little poem by my friend Kri:

ODE TO THE RAG

You have served me well
These many years
Though you cramped my body
And left me in tears

From an early age
I learned not to wear white
Like the acid in Aliens
You ate through every layer in sight

Every vacation
Every big event
You followed me around
Wherever I went

But now it is time
To bid you "adieu"
To get rid of the pads
And the strings and the "eww"

So, without a tear
I say then, farewell
And, I look forward to my next phase:
Old Lady Twat Smell



Until next time...

xoxo
