Back to school, back to school....

Today was the first day of Grade 11 for my baby. Doesn't she look happy :)
She is the last one of my girls still in school. She is unsure of what exactly she wants to do after highschool.
She is thinking of taking a culinary course. She is the cook in the family....must have got that from hubby ;)
I tell her not to worry so much about after highschool, I still don't know what I want to do when I grow up ;)
 I was putting some finishing touches on something I am putting together for Nicoles blog, Canadian Nickel Scrapn. Every Wednesday Nicole features a guest designer on her blog.
Nicole asked me if I wanted to participate. What an honour to be featured on her blog. She is an awesome card and altered items artist.
I actually spent the whole day at home today...oh wait I did go out to pick up some take out. I know bad eh. I bought some macosins booties when we were on our trip. These are so comfortable, plus they have a rubber sole. I forgot to take them off when I went out, lol. Good thing I just went through the drive-thru.

I received a letter today from my cardiologists receptionist. Not only did they cancel my appointment for the end of this month, but it also stated that he is off indefinately.
So I phoned and she told me he is ill. I hope it isn't to bad. Doctors aren't suppose to get sick.
She will know more next month. She did say that she could refer me to another cardiologist. But I am hoping I won't have to do that.

Today would have been my dad's 72nd birthday. He was not one for birthday's, but he would send me flowers for mine every year. I think I will pick me up some flowers tomorrow.

Hope you all had a creative Wednesday :)



  1. Happy first day of school for your daughter. And happy birthday to your dad.

  2. Lovely thought to get flowers for your dad's birthday- a nice reminder of him. Lol, my dh does not know what he wants to do when he grows up either! ;0p

  3. congrats on being a guest! that is awesome--

    hope your daughter had a wonderful first day!

  4. Congratulations on being a guest designer! So hate to have to change doctors. Hope for both your sakes you don't have to.

  5. Mine son just started kindergarten on Tuesday. I did not cry or get emotional at all. Probably next year when he goes to first grade and goes to a new school and god help me - on the bus it might be a little more anxiety ridden for me. I don't know what I want to do either, when I grow up.

    Congratulations on being a guest designer! I think they are the ones that should be honored btw.

    Good luck with your doctor situation. It doesn't matter what your healthcare system is like, when you find a good doctor you really want to keep your doctor. It's a lot of trust you put in this person and to have to find someone else is a huge deal.

  6. My dd just started her senior year and still has no clue what she wants to do. I told her to just enjoy it. I hope your daughter has a great junior year! It really does pass quickly.

  7. WOOHOO can't wait to see what you have come up with! And it's me that get's to be honored.

    Ugh why do kids have to grow up so fast.

  8. I Know whatcha mean about kids growing up so fast! Mine are 25 and 10 already! I sure hope your dr is ok and you dont have to change anything! Happy Birthday to your Dad! My Dad will be gone 4 yrs on Monday! Me and my Mom and sister always do something together on that day.. Eat his favorite meal and go to his favorite place which is Pigeon Forge, Tn. We always have lots of laughing and of course crying! All in All I enjoy spending time with them! Congrats on being guest designer! So awesome!

  9. Happy Birthday to your Dad - I know you must be missing him. Flowers are a nice tradition to continue to honor your Dad!

  10. Happy Birthday to your Dad! Kristy does look happy to go back to school. She is only one year ahead of Maverick. He doesn't enjoy school much, just knows that he has to get through it :0) Hope you are having a good day and I hope things go well with your cardiologist :0) Hugs!

  11. I really appreciate the way you share your thoughts. Very open and honest. The idea for flowers is such a good one. And I don't know what I want to be yet either. Do we need to know by 40??

  12. Kristy looks adorable :) I didn't figure out what I wanted to do until part way through my last semester of college! Talk about waiting until the last minute! Kristy has plenty of time!

    I figure if your moccasins have rubber soles, they are real shoes and can be with outside :)

    Hope your Doc is okay. Would suck to have to go to a different one. And I think picking yourself up some flowers, in remembrance of your dad's birthday, is a WONDERFUL idea!!!!

  13. Congratulations on your guest designer invite! That blogger knows talent when she see it.:-) I hope your daughter has a great year. She is so pretty! And I'm still trying to figure out what I want to be when I grow up. I guess I've never grown up.;-) It is so nice to get yourself flowers. That is a nice memory you have of your dad. So precious!

  14. My eldest son is in year 11, doesn't time fly.

    Hope you don't have to change your Doctor.

    Congratulations on being featured as a guest designer.
    Happy crafting

  15. Congratulations on the guest designer spot. Hope you enjoy it!

  16. Congrats on the guest DT spot!

  17. Your daughter is gorgeous....and congrats on the GDT gig. You'll do it justice, I know, because you are one talented lady.

    I haven't sent you your package yet...mainly because I just got back (went away for a few days with hubby....which is also why my poor blog has been neglected.)


Leave me some love and I will return it right back to you :)
