This past Saturday I went back to work (my outside of the house job!!) for the first time since Christmas Eve.

For those of you who don't know, Christmas day I got very sick. My Husband took me to the hospital and I spent the next 4 days on IV fluid.

I had pancreatitus and gull stones. Two days after the New Year, the gull bladder was removed. Because of the 4 incisions, and the possibility of a hernia, I have not been allowed to lift for the last month.

I am a mail carrier, and lift upwards of 75 lb in the form of boxes or trays of mail daily!!!

I was actually quite excited to go back to work. I missed my co-workers and adult interaction. Not that I don't get it from my fellow bloggers, but you know what I mean!!!!

So any way I am rambling, the reason why I haven't posted much in the last couple days is because I am back to work!!!!

The main point of this post is to thank 3 people for 4 Beautiful Awards!!!!! I was sooooooooo excited to get them. They are my first on here, and I cant begin to tell you the pride I feel for getting them!!!
