Capturing the Moment..and Houston, we have a problem :):):)

Hi all :):):)

I wanted to share my latest layout I made for Sketchy Thursdays! :):):):):)


Everything on here except the rub-ons are from BlueMoonScrapbooking.com :):):)





And here is our sketch this week :):):):):)

So, here is my problem :(  We FINALLY got our new bed! It's beautiful, right?!?!? :)


wellllllllllllllllllllllll... bad news is, I let Brian have the final say on the mattress we chose! EEK! He PICKED EXTRA FIRM!!!! Ouch! Ouch! Ouch! I have had SUCH a BAD BACK ACHE for the past three days, that I can barely walk! :(:(:(  ---- so yesterday the furniture store exchanged it for a different style.. sooooo FINGERS and TOES crossed for me please!! I seriously have never been in this much pain before! I hope the new mattress they gave us is SOFTER! :):):):) So, if I haven't visited you in awhile, please forgive me...everything hurts right now... Sitting, Standing, Walking... just PAIN!! So I am having a hard time focusing on everyone's blogs when my back is screaming at me :(:(:(


Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :):):)

  23. Firstly - love the layout! Secondly sorry about the bed!! We also have a mattress that is too hard for me & gives me a sore back every day - although I've got more used to it now! (here you can't exchange them once bought!!)

  24. That layout is gorgeous!!!

    So sorry about the mattress problems... Doug and I bought our brand new bed back in April.. it took me three weeks full of back pain to get used to the brand new mattress... it felt great to sit on.. but to sleep.. omw. I pray the new one works out much better for you!!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I feel your pain. My parents guest room has the hardest mattress imaginable. I actually crawled into my daughter's bunkbed last time because I couldn't take it anymore and dreaded waking up not being able to walk :)

  26. Oh, poor you!! I hope the new mattress is better for your back!!

  31. Julie so sorry about your back!!
    That is awful!! I will continue to pray for you!!
    That happens to me sometime when we travel I will have a back and hip ache from a bed to hard.
    I have never been in from sitting though so my heart goes out to you!!
    Gorgeous LO!!
    Love the rub ons you used and love the fussy cutting!!

  32. Oh my goodness Julie that is awful. If we lived closer I would come and give you a massage. I sure hope the new mattress cures all.
    Great layout my friend!!!

  33. I think I have the opposite with our mattress. It is too soft and I wake in the morning and my back is sore. I hope you get a comfy bed and your back starts to feel better. LOVE your LO!! :-)

  36. extra firm? oh dearrr... poor Julie. I prefer soft, squishy, snuggly stuff.. extra firm? no thank you, i hope you'll get a softer mattress!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Amazing what a mattress can do to you! I really hope the softer mattress does the trick!

  38. Fun layout! We have a bed that can be adjusted on both sides. It is a little awkward but Steve can have his extra firm bed while I tend to fluctuate depending on how my lupus is treating me... Good luck!
