Catching Up

It's been over 3 months since I've posted so I thought I would do some catching up.
In November I got sick at work. I thought I had the flu. Little did I know that was just the beginning of my health issues.
I made several trips to the doctors, two trips to the ER and was hospitalized twice (the first time was the week of Christmas). The holidays last year for me was not fun at all. The family brought me my gifts to the hospital and I enjoyed a Christmas lunch of fake chicken and pumpkin pie. Yuck...
Finally after the second trip to the ER, I was diagnosed with an abscess on my kidney. It needed to be drained and a nephrostomy tube was placed. One of the doctors think I'll need surgery on my kidney but I'll find out for sure on my appointment this Wednesday. Other than that, I'm feeling much better than I did a couple of months ago. I've been off work for a while and need to get back so I can get paid!!

Yesterday Chuck and I went to see Slumdog Millionaire. It was a good movie, but after seeing it. I don't think I'll want to visit India. Now I'm sure there are many beautiful places to visit in India, but none of that was shown (except for the Taj Mahal and even that area didn't impress me). It's sad to see people living in those conditions and all I can say it that it's a good thing they didn't have "smell-o-vision" in the movie.

Mr. Potato Head
Last week Steven was in town and we went to Disneyland. The first attraction I wanted to ride was the new Toy Story Mania.
***Disney trivia*** How many rides are at Disneyland? One - Mr. Toads Wild ride. The rest are called attractions.
If you get a chance to visit Disneyland you must go on Toy Story Mania. It is so much fun. It's in 4-D, which is better than 3-D!! haha

I also tried making my favorite sushi, Futomaki. I tried making it the way my mom does, but it's so much work to cook and prepare everything and though my family likes sushi, I'm the only one who likes futomaki. So it doesn't look like it's something I'll make often but need to so I can practice. I needed more vinegar in the rice and making the kanpyo took a long and the rolling part was not that easy. Here's my attempt at futomaki:

Now that I'm feeling much better I hope to be posting and scrapping and making cards more often. I really missed making my cards. I bought a bunch of Quickutz but have not had a chance to use them. I have lots of ideas swirling in my head but no time to do them.

Today was a beautiful day. 82 degrees! But I think it's suppose to rain tomorrow. That's ok because the Governator said there is a drought in California.

Hope everyone has a great week!!
