Stash of the Month Shipment and a Cheap Kit

I nearly forgot about my Silkweaver Stash of the Month for January, but here it is on the left: a nice piece of navy cashel linen and great colors of GAST to use on it, if the occasion fits. Below that is the little Mill Hill Spring Bouquet Wreath pin kit. On the right, the lovely "Angel of Bounty" kit cost $2.25 on eBay, less than the postage. I sniff out eBay bargains like a hound. I have secrets, and I have several kits more yet to show. Spent amazingly little. Wasted a ton of time.

My beautiful kit got cut off on the right hand side in the pic because my grey tabby (barely showing) couldn't resist getting in the way. After several tries, I gave up, and this was the best one. My grey tabby, Caiti (Cat-Tee), is possibly my favorite of the 3 cats, though I hate choosing a favorite. She's the dumbest, yet a sweet, gentle little soul with a very tender heart, and she's just beautiful. I read a quote somewhere that the child you feel sorriest for is the one you love the most.

I'm going to have to get a referral to a gastroenterologist (sp?), and my mom & dad are going to take me. Everything is going right through me, and I'm getting dehydrated even though I'm drinking plenty of fluids. I know my intake of food is not being absorbed as nutrients. I'm getting help, but I know it won't take long for me to get my body back in sync after getting the right treatment. I'm really a tough old bird, and my brother, a doctor, told me once I was indestructible. The picture here isn't too good of me, but at least it shows in my eyes how crummy I feel. That's my favorite purse too. It doesn't match my outfit in the pic, but it's great to fend off the randy old men.

Hugs, Nancy! I do hope you'll be your own perky self in no time! I loved what you said about Caiti... and had to laugh at your last paragraph ;)

The stash you got is lovely! Yummy fibers :)

Hugs again! :)

LOL You are silly! Somehow I doubt that's a "true" reflection of you.

What a nice Stash of the Month though! And those are some great bargains, I'd don't suppose we could bribe you for your "ebay secrets"? ;)

Glad to hear you are going in to be checked out! I'm sure you will be feeling better in no time!

Hope you feel better! LOVE the outfit!! LOL!

Isn't it funny how each kitty has a totally different personality, which gives you a totally different relationship with each, even though you love them all equally?

You are the Ebay Queen!!! :o)

Nancy, you are a hoot! Sorry you're feeling so crummy, but at least you can still manage to laugh through it all. :))
Wonderful new stash, and congrats on your awesome Ebay skills!

Your a hoot. I was an ebay addict myself. But now I use all my time to read blogs. I miss the little presents in the mail but it's easier on my budget. Take Care, CJ

Hi Nancy,
I'm glad you are getting checked out. I had a friend with a similar problem and I suggested she try acidophilus which helps balance the good and bad bacteria in your gut. She asked her doctor and he okayed it. She does think it helped her. I also drink mint or ginger tea and my last resort is Maalox. I'm pretty sure I have IBS.
Good luck and let us know you you are.
