My turn.....

Wouldn't you know it...last night I came down with whatever my son has - fever of 102, chills, headache, stomach took me about an hour to get over the chills - imagine me in the tropics, under 2 blankets trying to get warm...! Guess I'll be laying low today.

Also - I've been tagged 3 times now! Thanks to Nancy at Jean's Inky Hugs, Susan at Susan Bluerobot, and Shannan at Pink Tulle with Feathers and Sequins, who want to know 7 more things about we go...........

1. I was either pregnant or nursing for all but about 8 months of our first 7 years of marriage.
2. When I was in college, Animaniacs and Power Rangers were part of my daily 'destress' routine after classes.
3. I played the trumpet in junior high (stage and marching band) - I had to stop playing because I got braces.
4. When we moved overseas I thought for sure I'd never be able to find Pantene conditioner, so I stocked up - I have 9 bottles - and it turns out that almost all the stores carry a complete line of Pantene products. :)
5. When I was in junior high I had to have oral surgery to expose, bracket, and turn an eye tooth that was growing in the middle of the roof of my mouth. Also, one of my baby teeth was 'fused' - 2 teeth that grew together as one.
6. I have a recurring nightmare that my teeth are crumbling.
7. I'm looking forward to leading the smARTworks smART Cookies design team...but not looking forward to having to just pick 5 finalists! There is some major talent out there!

And just for fun, a bonus -
8. my favorite ice cream place is in Upland, IN, where I went to college (Taylor U.). They have 100 different kinds of sundaes, and 100 different kinds of shakes. My 2 favorite shakes - Mocha Almond Fudge (coffee ice cream with chocolate syrup and almonds), and a Breakfast shake - vanilla ice cream with strawberries, bananas, and rice krispies. Yum!

OK, I'm going back to bed......................................


  1. Oh No!!! Be careful & take care of yourself (I know that's hard to do with kids & husband!) Praying for your quick recovery!

  2. Take care of yourself! I'm not surprised you have teeth nightmares - 2 of your tag items were about teeth - 3 if you include the nightmare one!

    My sister had an eye tooth in the roof of her mouth too! It had to be bracketed and dragged into the proper place - very painful and in the end it died so she had to get it capped.

    I hope your eye tooth story had a better ending!

  3. Hope you're feeling better today!!

    "It's time for Animaniacs! We have pay for play contracts..." My roommate and I used to watch this every afternoon right before heading down to the dining hall for dinner - I have all the CDs they ever released, and their musical satires never fail to crack me up!! (I am the very model of a cartoon individual!) :)

  4. Oh, Dina, I really hope you feel better soon! There's nothing worse than being sick when you're a momma and a wife! (aka You're in my prayers that you get lots of rest and feel better soon!

  5. You know something I have that same dream about my teeth crumbling.. That's really weird!

    Thanks for sharing with 7 thing we didn't know about you.

    Take care of yourself!!

  6. Sorry to hear your sick! Get well soon!

    I sure have been enjoying checking out your stamped creations! You have wonderful talent!


  7. I just read about your son Benny through smARTworks blog. What a horrible nightmare! I'll be praying for him, you, Russ & the entire family. God is faithful.
