Today's Ten

1. Ok, some of you have asked about the email I eluded to here. Several weeks ago I participated in the So You Think You Can Scrap contest at Scrap for a Cure and won third place and a free kit. Well, they emailed me later and said that they had some design team changes and wanted to offer me a three month Guest Design Team spot! Of course, I was thrilled and begin designing for them with the November kit, which arrived at my door on Saturday. It's a fabulous kit and I'm so excited to play with it! Scrap for a Cure donates a portion of their profits to a quarterly charity, which I think is amazing, and I am honored to be a part of their team.

2. In other exciting news, I am also now a member of the design team at Scrapgal. I found this out on Thursday night and the news was made public yesterday. So very excited! Scrapgal is a great site and I will be working with some fabulous ladies! I can't wait to start creating pages for Scrapgal and am already spending lots of time on their fun message board. Come check it out!

3. The good keeps on coming...I made the Catwalk at SIS for the second week in a row!

4. Our wine delivery from Husch came yesterday. We had a picnic and wine tasting at Husch the day after our wedding and have recieved twice yearly wine club deliveries ever since. Let's hope my reflux allows me to enjoy some of this wine sometime soon!

5. Speaking of reflux, my new medication is helping and I am having fewer issues. I am knocking on wood right now, because as soon as I say something.....

6. In other health news, I had a CT scan last week because of a large lump in my neck that has been there since before I got sick in April. Turns out I have "inflammatory lymph nodes" in my neck, which is pretty much what the doctor was thinking. But, I also have nodes on my thyroid. I have a follow up appointment for this in two weeks. Not sure what this means for me. I had elevated thyroid antibodies in some blood work this summer, but just had a second blood test last week that showed normal thryoid levels. We shall see....

7. Shawn and I are now fans of Lost. We had never watched it before but were interested. So Saturday we rented some of season 1 on DVD. We are only about half way the first season, but totally hooked. We've got a lot more catching up to do though before the new season starts next year.

8. Headed to the dentist this afternoon for a cavitity that needs to be filled and may turn into a root canal. The dentist says it looks bad on the xray, but it's not really hurting me, so he's not sure yet if it needs a root canal or not. I certainly hope not. I've never had one before and would kind of like to keep it that way. I will know in about 3 hours. Cross your fingers for me!

9. Because of said dentist appointment and the fact that my mouth will be all numbed up, I have cancelled much of my afternoon. It's kind of hard to sing with a numb mouth. Plus my appointment lands squarely in the middle of my afternoon sessions, because I couldn't get a morning appointment anytime soon. Since I already have a shorter schedule on Tuesday's, I will actually only see one kiddo than head to the dentist today.

10. The pumpkin patch with Stephanie and Amelia was lots of fun yesterday. The one negative though was that is was HOT yesterday. Like mid 90's, which puts a damper on the whole "fall" experience. Poor Amelia was a trooper though wearing the hat I knitted despite the heat. Here are some pictures:
