Weeks like this...

This week started off on the wrong foot with my 7 year old going by ambulance to the hospital on Sunday night due to an asthma attack we couldn't get under control.  After staying there until 6:30 the next morning we were released but by 2:30 it was obvious we needed to go back and his pediatrician admitted him.  After things were under better control he actually thought it was pretty neat to have his own TV, his own PlayStation and be able to eat pizza in bed.  However, I think that if anyone says IV to him in the next few months he will run off screaming forgetting all about the PlayStation and pizza.

I made this last week and am finally getting it posted.  I made it for the Simply Sunday Challenge at K Andrews  blog.  The challenge was to use something recycled and something with owls for Earth Day.  My recycled part is the gum package.  I actually have a bunch of these gum packages that I have saved over the last year or so because they are just so cool.  Thankfully, my husband and kids chew a lot of gum!  The sentiment stamp is from K Andrews Designs.
