I have something neat to share! On June 18, I am going to be part of a blog hop over at Scrap Attack Scrapbooking or {SAS}. I've never done one before, but it looks like it's going to be a ton of fun. There will be 18 different blogs to visit and the opportunity to win some great prizes, provided by the awesome staff over at {SAS}, too :) And, all you will need to do...visit the blogs that we send you to and leave a comment....that easy!

I'll provide more info as the date gets closer :)
In other looks like I may FINALLY have a had on this asthma. For those that might not know, I became very sick at the beginning of May (NOT a good time when you are a school teacher!) After several days, I thought I may have whopping cough (it had been going around) and took some antibiotics. By May 26th I was still sick so I went back to the doctor (saw a different one this I really love) and right away she said it sounded like asthma to her. I didn't want to believe one in this family has asthma and I've never had any problems. But, I was desperate so I took the inhaler and got the chest x-ray...and waited. Nine days later I was back because I couldn't get off of the inhaler (I was taking it every 4-6 hours...more like 4). The chest x-ray was clear and so Michelle said that it was in fact asthma. I was so down and depressed at this point. I had no energy (hadn't had any for over a month) and just couldn't have bad days. I mean, it's not like I can up and quit my job, and even if I was home, I have three young children. Michelle was WONDERFUL and put me on a cocktail of meds: Sigular and Advair for my asthma, continued use of Zyrtec and Nasonex for my allergies, and a multivitamine.
One week later, I have to admit that I am FINALLY feeling better. I still have my moments, and my voice still sounds terrible (squeaky and like I have a cold) but at least the other issues are settling down and I feel like I am going to win this battle.
Okay, sorry that was so rambling, but this has really been a burden for me and has effected me in such a negative way. I'm just happy that I can finally see a light at the end of the tunnel.
Now...if I can just start to lose some of this weight......:( Better leave that for another post!
