First off, I'd just like to say how sorry I am for not being around. If you're a follower here or on my FB page you probably know I've been rather sick since starting Cystic Fibrosis medication on the 15th of February. Since then it's been one thing after another, including several days last week that required me laying in bed doing nothing at all in an attempt to heal. I was able to keep in communication because of my tablet, but I wasn't able to do a whole lot, and I'm sorry for that. I'm still not better either, so I'm taking things day by day.
Because of all this the exciting reward of getting to go to the Anaheim Scrapbook Expo after doing the medication turned into something that I hoped I'd just be able to claw my way to instead of haveing some sort of crazy awesome celebration time. I was told by the CF doctors that I needed to come in to their office on Thursday the 20th for tests and while that part sucked (we came away with no answers as of yet, even after me being poked and prodded and tested for over two hours) the timing was actually okay since the Scrapbook Expo started on Thursday this year. A gal from my message board arranged to meet me when we got there and, with Mike trailing behind waiting to purchase things and carry stuff for me, we were able to do some fun shopping together.
Saturday was the day of the big group meet so we decided to go out again. Not something we'd usually do, go down the hill twice in one week, especially so close, but we needed boring things like dog food to make the trip more legitimate than both Mike and I wanting to play with friends. The drive is about two hours, two and a half, so we try to limit how much we go out. But this time the excuse was not just to spend money so it was okay, lol!
Susan, the gal I'd met with on Thursday, had organised as many SoCal Peeps meeting up on Saturday as she could and it was her, Jeanne (who I went to the Ontario Expo with) and my friend Sue that I met up with first when Mike dropped Sirius and I off. We hit the Echo Park booth first, HARD, and then continued to wander around the floor in a haphazard kind of way, just talking and shopping and hanging out.
That's it! That's my shopping adventure at the Expo this year. I think I'm set, right? LOL! Thank you for coming, dear readers, and for hanging in there with me during this whole medical hoopla. I've always known CF was a serious disease (it's technically terminal after all), but being this sick for so long is something I've never experienced. I hope to be on the mend and get back to sharing things with you this week. I have a new card already, and a second part to this Expo Love post with pictures of the Peep gals so please stay tuned.
