A Little Late

Believe it or not, I'm back - at least for today.   Yes, I'm still alive, but no, not kicking even a little tiny bit I'm afraid.  During the last couple of years taking care of Jim, everyone kept telling me to be sure and take care of myself too, but being the crazy old fool that I can sometimes be, I failed to listen.  Live and learn the hard way I guess and now I'm paying the price.   After being in the horse-pital for almost a week you have a tendency to lose your humor really fast but it's starting to come back in spurts - at least a little bit.   Going to take a while for me to get mobile again but I'm working on it.    Jim's walker, recliner and I are now BEST buds and none of us are liking this at all - but such is life right now.

This is one of the cards I made before I cratered and since Halloween is already come and gone I figured I'd post it and then see about getting it mailed - or save for next year!  The stamp is from Art Impressions. 

I'll be back when I can and will also be back to commenting when I can.  Just a little slow going right now but will try and get back soon.

Thanks for stopping by..........and also thanks for a all the sweet cards and well wishes.
Lynn

OMG, this is just what I needed this morning to make me chuckle! I've never seen this image before, but it's hilarious and I LOVE it!! Your sense of humor is still solidly in tact Lynn :) Sorry you're still laid up, but welcome to the club I say :) It's been a tough time for a lot of us recently but hopefully you're on the mend and will soon be flying with the best of the old bats :)

I can tell that this "old bat" is quite a bit more mobile than you right now, but that is OK. Hopefully you'll be up and around soon and fly right past her. Don't try it too soon though. I think you need to listen to all of us this time. Actually I think you HAVE to listen to us this time. It is nice to see that you feel good enough to post, though. We do miss seeing your great cards. Good thoughts coming your way.

JD/ Jill said...

Lynn, This is a fun imagine...made into a wonderful card! Hope you are both doing much better! Prayers for both of you!...

*Vicki* said...

Oh no! So sorry to hear about you being hospitalized Lynn! I hope it's nothing real serious and that you are back to yourself very soon! Your card really makes me chuckle and I can tell it's one by you for sure! :) I absolutely LOVE that background you've made...so beautifully done and I'm glad you've shared it on your blog too!! Sending you healing hugs my friend!

Lynn McAuley said...

Sending up a little prayer for your recovery, Lynn! May it be quick and complete!! If there is one thing I have learned in my 65th year, it is that getting old is not for sissies!

I love your fabulously fun Halloween card!

Maxine D said...

Oh Lynn this is fabulous - the best halloween card I have seen. Glad to hear you are sort of mobile again.
Blessings and prayers
Maxine

Tammy said...

Your card is absolutely too much fun! Love it and glad you are getting better. Please keep up the good work!

Darnell J Knauss said...

I'm utterly impressed to see you blogging at all, Lynn! You are a tough cookie and that's going to mean you'll be kicking it again before you know it! Just like the old bat on your card ... which I love to bits! Don't be on the computer too long at a time (listen this time, lol!) which means don't worry about leaving me comments. You just get better! Hugs to Rambo and you! Darnell

NanaConnie said...

Keeping you in my prayers, Lynn. I know being in the hospital was no fun. Love seeing you post something again. Unfortunately, I'm mostly sidelined (other than a bunch of DT work I had done ahead) recovering from an elbow surgery to re-attach a tendon. No crafting for a few weeks and typing is very time consuming so my comments will be scarce for a while, too. :-D

Evie said...

Gorgeous card Lynn...love that image.

Hugs,
Evie

LesleyG said...

MiamiKel said...

Nice to see a post, Lynn! It's amazing you were able to create this gorgeous and detailed card while being 'out' - I couldn't make this if I wasn't injured! Here's to you feeling better soon ♥

Bonnie said...

I'm glad to see you haven't lost your sense of humor during all this duress, Lynn! Keep your chin up. We're all prayin' for you.

Mary Anne / MA54K said...

Well dang it, Lynn.... that was sure not the reporting in we would have liked. Please try and feel your old self. I have collected AI stamps for years and I think this is on of my favorite newer ones. She is a riot, my friend.

Brenda said...

Lynn you just worry about getting better so you can give up that walker and recliner. I think as women, we tend to all be just like you and just do what we gotta do until we crash and burn. We can't do it all, but we try. Well now you just get well because we miss you and we care about you! When you are better we will love to see more of your creations, but for now you just take it easy. This card cracked me up Lynn, I just love this old lady on this card, too cute!!!! I need her to make my Halloween cards to send out next year. Even though I didn't send any out this year. lol Big hugs, Brenda

KT Fit Kitty said...

Oh no, Lynn, I am so sorry to read that you've been having some health problems. Please take care of yourself and get better! Easier said than done, isn't it! Your Halloween card made me chuckle! That's a funny stamp and sentiment! Sending healing hugs and prayers!

Tammy said...

So sorry you haven't been well Lynn, sending hugs and prayers! What a fabulous Halloween card, I love that fun image!
Big hugs, Tammy

MaryH said...

Enjoyed this card yesterday, but not time to comment. I'm so glad you had this ready, to keep a smile on your face, as you & your current best buds navigate what is in place for you all just now. I'm pleased to see you still have a strong sense of humor, and admire that. You've been through a lot, so at least you're still able to chuckle over a few things. Hang in there, keep on being 'good' about what you have to do. Wonderful job on this cutie. Take care, TFS & Hugs too.

Shelly Schmidt said...

Sending Hugs and well wishes from Illinois! I know back issues are no fun at all- ask me how I know. I think this card is one of those- WOWZA cards! I love your background, love the sentiment panel and your colors are just beautiful. Wishing you well wishes and speedy healing : )

Margaret said...

LOL! What a fabulous image and sentiment. Just love it.

Monica said...

Oh Lynn, your humour is still there and I thank God for it.

I could not answer your email as I was down with an awful headache for three days and every time I wanted to send you an email, something or the other came in my way. Not that you were not in my thoughts.

Now to your card, it is so very funny and cute. You are one of the funniest people I have met in blogland and your sense of humour too.

Hoping for you to mend soon and I know you will,

Monica

Jeanette (Forest Ranger) said...

LOL! That sentiment cracks me up! Fun card!

Kristie W. said...

Before I looked too closely, I thought she had a cape on and not bat wings. Super fun card and I do hope you are back on your feet soon! Big hugs!!

Lori Kobular said...

OMG! This is just so funny that I laughed out loud! I really LOVE that sentiment! Your card is absolutely adorable!

Davi said...

Lynn, SOOO sorry to hear you were in the hospital and still feeling under the weather! Praying that you gain strength and healing each day my friend!! I know that stubborn always seems to come back and bite me lol. Seriously take it easy as possible and just go with the flow! You card is hysterical!! I love the dark blue and the pink pops on it! hugs :)

Chriss America Real said...

Oh Lynn, so sorry to hear that you were in the hospital. I totally get it about taking care of your hubby though, it is so easy to get worn out.

Love your card!

Nancy in Iowa said...

I hope you were on the mend and even in the midst of everything that appears to be going on found a few blessings to count this holiday.
So glad you posted this card - I had a serious belly laugh over it!
Please take care!

Lesley said...

Great hunourous card. Glad you are feeling better and getting there & hope the physical therapy contributes to you getting back to 'normal' . Moving what a challenge for you, we are in the same boat so I prefer to bury my head in the sand. But you obviously you can't but I'm sure you will get there. slowly but surely. I'm a hoarder!!! Hope your move goes smoothly - Happy Christmas Lesley x x

Monica said...

Such a fun card, Lynn. And I am glad your humour is coming back in bits.

Happy to see you blog.

Always think of you,

Monica xxx
