Too Many Hours

I have another nursing friend who has taken time off of work to care for her husband with health issues.  He had a massive heart attack a year ago, and he doesn't have enough viable heart tissue to have open heart surgery.  He just had a pacemaker placed the other month and is doing OK, but she is taking time to spend with him now.  We got together for breakfast yesterday after my night shift which was wonderful to compare notes and support each other.  Afterwards I ran some errands....and then it got late.  I work tonight so I stay up on nights before I work so I sleep during the day so now I have been up for over 36 hours.  I am going to post these cards and then go to bed.  I met our new neighbor last night and took them over a loaf of chocolate chip banana bread which is my specialty.  They are an adorable couple with a six year old son.

All of the cards that I made last night have paper of sentiments from TLC, Create.  I subscribed to the July Club and now just enrolled in the August Club so I'm excited to see what images and word art I will receive. I get so excited when I get the emails, it is like a special present to open them up to see what has arrived.  I have tried to organize things into file folders since I am getting so many wonderful items from Paulette.
