I had such a great time at the TAC Seminar. I got to see friends I have made in past years and met plenty of new friends. It was so good to put faces with names from the past year.
I had to share this picture. A few of us were sitting outside looking at the river and enjoying the weather one evening and I just happened to look up into the sky. This is what I saw. Isn't it awesome? There were Angel Wings right above us. Of course I had to run into the lobby of the hotel and tell everyone to come look. It was just like it was meant to be for us.

The Make & Takes and Classes were great. They were all put on by the TAC staff. I just have to give kudo's to them. They did a fantastic job.

Our new catalog is now in effect. It is wonderful. If you click on the catalog it will take you to my website where you can order at your convenience. If you happen to do that...thanks in advance. If you don't want to order but ponder through the catalog please feel free to do that also.

I do have to toot my own horn here. I won The Angel Award at the banquet on Saturday night. I would post a picture of me in my crown but I don't have a good one so if anyone was there and got a good picture please send it to me. The Angel Award is an award that is done by your peers nominating you. I think it is one of the best awards as it shows how much you have thouched the hearts of your fellow demonstrators. I am so blessed and to be able to win this award. I want to take the time to Thank everyone that sent in a letter about me. You are truly awesome angels.
I will post a picture when I get one.

I also had a wonderful friend send me flowers and fruit to share with my roommates for the weekend. Aren't they beautiful? I carried them back home with me on the airplane and they survived.
I also have to say that I am feeling really good right now. It has been 2 1/2 weeks since my last chemo appt. I start the new chemo this Friday. They say it is not as bad as what I just finished. Let's all hope and pray they are right.
I plan on trying to be more creative and sharing if this is the case. I am also wanting to start some classes back up if I can. I am so ready to get things rolling again.
Thanks for stopping by my blog and checking in. It means so much to me to have all of you stop in and see what is going on. Have a great moment, day, week or whatever.

Seminar Is Coming Fast

And I am happy to say that two of my downline and very good friends came over yesterday and helped me with my Club Med Trades. They are all done. That sure made me feel better since I have been battling fatigue with this last round of Chemo. Debbie and Kathy came over around 11:00 a.m. and we worked until close to 4:00 p.m. and got them done. It was such a huge help and I was so glad to have them here. We had a very nice time chatting while we were gluing...LOL I will share the trades when I get back from Seminar.
On a happier note I did feel better today. The fatigue is still with me some but I did a lot more today than I did in a whole week. I am working on building my strength by Wednesday so I will be ready for my trip. I can't wait to see all of my Angel friends. We are going to have a great time.
Now I can work on a few other things I wanted to do. You know the fun things and little gifty stuff to take with me. I have the ideas and they of course are all easy. That's my way of life right now.
I hope everyone has had a good weekend so far. Have a wonderful Father's Day tomorrow celebrating with the Father's in your lives. I know we are going to breakfast with my daughter and her family. My son will be sleeping as he is working third shift right now. We will see him later. We are going to breakfast early enough that I am hopefully going to make it to church. I didn't get there last week because I slept through the morning. After that it will be a relaxing day with my DH.

I finally made a CARD!

I actually made a quick card for my DH's Birthday today. The chemo has given me much fatigue again this time. I am hoping it is coming to an end. I have slept for two days again. I am hoping to have more energy since today is Birthday Day. This card is quite simple. I found a poem on the net and then stamped the TAC Tiger Face onto the poem. Matted with some masculine paper I had here and called it a day. The striped paper is actually mounted on the cream cardstock which is also for the poem.
I have been trying to work on my Club Med trades for Seminar. They are coming along slow but sure. Pray for energy so I can get them done. I am too far on them to stop and say NO.
I again want to thank everyone for reading my blog and sending me such nice and comforting messages. You guys just keep me going.
Until next time.....Have a great day!

HOORAY!!! for Today

I had my last round of the BAD chemo today. I saw the Dr. first. My oncologist is on vacation so I saw one of the others. I want my Dr. Crane back...LOL Anyway he told me I was anemic but not bad enough to give a blood transfusion so he said the fatigue would probably be bad again this time. They gave me 100% of the dosage and didn't cut it down. That means I took 100% each time so those lingering bad cells should be DEAD. Dr. Lang said to go home and just take it easy. He sure doesn't know my personality. I can only stay down so long and then I have to do somthing. I guess I will shuffle my time around but know that sleep will be approaching in the next couple of days.
I do get a break as I don't start the next kind of chemo until June 27 because of the TAC Seminar. I hopefully will be some strength up for that. They say the Taxol is like taking an 80 proof shot of alcohol straight into the artery. They told me not to drive myself. This should be very interesting since I don't drink. My DH said he wondered if they paid for rehab after the chemo....LOL
I have been stamping for Seminar but don't want to share the stuff since it is for there. I have also been doing some things for Paper Wings which is for Angels Only also. I need to play with just fun stuff so I can share. Maybe if the fatigue isn't so bad that I can play in my little corner of the basement. After all it is in the 90's here and I am staying in...the heat zaps me fast.
I hope everyone has a great weekend! Thanks for coming back and reading my updates.
