When Life Hands You Lemons...

I know that it has been quite a while since I have blogged, and longer since I have posted a project. This summer I was busy with the wedding and road trip. Then it got busy with back to school. Well....things don't always turn out the way we plan, and I would like to share a little bit of that with you now.
For the past 2 weeks, I have been in a bit of a fog, trying to figure out what is going on. Things at work took a drastic change, and I find myself going out on a medical leave of absence. I have been having troubles with my hand for about a year now, and things were pretty managable. During the summer, they were actually pretty good. Going back to work, things were slowly deteriorating, and then I was transferred to a different position, and I knew that my hand would not be able to handle that. Sooooo, the past week or so I have been trying to get in to see the doctors (one of which of course if going out of town for 2 weeks)so we can get this leave approved. This is not what we had anticipated, and it is scary, but we must do what is best for me and the family.
Peter is starting back in the high school again, and it is really hard for him. Having me leave the classroom complicates matters for him, but we will all get through this for the best.
My scrapbooking and crafting has definitely been affected by the condition of my hand. Peter is having fun helping me do cutting and stuff that aggravates my hand, and I hope to be able to start posting projects again soon. In the meantime, now that Ben has moved into his college dorm, we have turned his old room into my new crafting space! It is almost ready for me to play in!
Thanks for all the love and support that you all have been sending me. I truly believe that we will be better off for this huge change that is going on in our lives right now.
