Guess what I got yesterday...

Well, I actually have two exciting things to share! Okay, three if you count each card separately. I got both of these super cute cards in one envelope yesterday and they brought such a smile to my face! They are both from Diane a blogging friend of mine and I know that she makes the rounds to other blogs too so you may have seen her name before. Anyway, I sent Diane a copy of my favorite devotional book and she sent me this lovely thank you note. I love the paisley in the corner. The paper piercing makes it so neat! The other card that she sent is a Valentine's card from her family to mine. Isn't it just adorable?! She sent me some of those images a while ago and I'm going to use it for Todd's Valentine's card so I suppose I should get off my behind and do it, huh? Diane has a new blog so you should go check it out HERE.

The other fun thing(s) I received yesterday is my pre-order for the Occasions mini catalog. Oh, Lordy ladies...this mini catalog is amazing! You guys are all going to love it! I will take a picture of my goodies later today and come back and post them.

For those who are wondering (and yes there were a couple of you!). I went to the doctor yesterday and my ears are just full of fluid (annoying) and she believes my stomach hurts again because of the acid. Long story short...it sounds like I'll have to be on an acid inhibitor for basically the rest of my life. Fun! Anyone care to join me? She painted an interesting picture for me though that you guys might get a kick out of. She likened my stomach to a skinned knee. The more acid the more it is going to hurt and apparently I produce lots of acid. So...there it is. I'm fine, started the meds yesterday and we'll see what happens! Thanks everyone for your concern!

Have a super Thursday!

Lorie, I have chronic gastritis and have to take nexium and zantac. I have found that once I was on them for awhile (several months) that my stomach didn't bother me much when I forgot to take them (I'm horrible about remembering to take my meds.) I went several months without taking them but recently started up again since my stomach started bothering me, I because of some strong meds I'm taking for the pain in my neck. Perhaps you may find the same, that you have to take the meds if your stomach starts acting up. Wishing you well!
