~HAPPY TUESDAY~POST # 199

OLD PICTURES of WHERE I WORK....MY DISPLAY SHOP/WORK AREA FOR MY WEBSITE, EBAY AND ETSY. NOTICE THE WALL AS IT LEADS INTO THE GARAGE WHERE I SHIP ALL MY PACKAGES!!!!




WOW WEE.....I can't believe it, I am posting on post number #199.....I can't believe how much has happened in the past 18 or so months. I am so excited for LIFE......Each and Every DAY, I am getting stronger and stronger. Not to mention my energy level is far better than I thought it would ever be. Because of that, my weight is melting off.....I am PROUD to say that I have lost 23 pounds and still losing. All those chemo drugs and that back surgery had me pretty much down and out with any type of movement. WHEW!!!! GLAD THAT is OVER. I did have another shot in my spine last Friday in hopes it will help with the nerve damage I have suffered with since getting cancer.

Now, post #200 is going to be AWESOME!!! I promise you that.....
HAPPY WARM BRIGHT SUMMER DAY TO YOU.....GO OUT AND MAKE IT A GOOD ONE.
Hugs and Love, Amy

Ciao! Your blog is so lovely! So beautiful pictures! You are a so positive person that it's a joy for me to read about you! I'm Italian and I love decorating. I'm passionate about flea markets, old things, fabric and all about home decor. I like creating for my home and for the little web-shop I share with my best friend. Nice to meet you!
Have a nice day!

Amy, can't wait to see your post. I haven't even attempted to count mine but I think I should try and work on a giveaway if I have a milestone. I am so thrilled to hear the joy in your post. Wow 23 lbs and I thought I was doing good with 8, but I only need to lose about 8 more and I will be comfortable with that weight and it does help the back, so I know how you must have felt. I will continue to pray that it's all uphill for you and your back gets better with each day. Love ya, Pat

ps. My platter arrived and I love it. Thanks, with all you have been through, that was really fast.

Rescued For You said...

Amy,
Wow! I realize I haven't been in blogland for very long, but am sitting here trying to figure out how I hadn't found you until today! I am nearly speechless in amazement and blown away by the strength you possess living so well with what you have been dealt.
I've been lost in your blog as well as your website for over 30 minutes and just had to break away long enough to post a comment. You are so inspiring!
As a fellow Iowan, I feel we must be sharing a bit of the same feelings. I, like you, did not lose a home to the flooding nor the tornados. I do, however, think your heart breaking for the victims and their losses must be the same as mine has been feeling. I am thankful that you were spared the nightmare of flooding and believe that God must have thought your plate was just darned full enough at this time.
Your sharing of your struggles with cancer has got to be so beneficial to others going through the same thing. My sister actually has been battling breast cancer for a little over a year. I'll be sure to direct her to your blog!
To go through it all and continue your Etsy store as well as website and blog is simply mindblowing and I commend you for it all!
I love all the white paint and pink roses, as you can see if you have time to visit my blog, so trust in knowing that I'll be a regular visitor!!
It's very nice to meet you!!
Smiles, Lorie
