2 Cute Chicks

Hello my friends and welcome visitors,

To enter my prize giveaway, please Click here.  To my friends that wanted to wish me well but did not want to enter the prize giveaway, would you please still post it on the side of your blog?  Thank you.

The surgery went very well but I am restless and probably not resting as much as I should.  I am one of those "pop-up" kind of people.  As soon as I sit down, I remember something I wanted to do and I pop right back up!  

The thing I miss the most is food.  I can only have liquids and things like jello or pudding.  

The thing I am most grateful for is my husband.  He took fantastic care of me.  He even slept in the hospital with me for two nights.  What a good man!

As most of you know, I just love these pop up boxes.  I always make two of them.

Here is one called Hatching Chicks

Aren't they darling?  They were so fun to make!

  7. Your boxes are just adorable. It is good to be moving after surgery, but make sure you get a balance of rest too. It is wonderful that you have the support of your husband. Just do what feels right - your body will tell you.
