Happy whooshed-around-to-Friday day! I hope your week has been grrrrand! Don't give one thought to the fact that today is Friday the 13th and you've already gotten a paper cut from opening the cereal box and one of the kids emptied your purse into the dog's water bowl. That should do it then for bad luck for you today. Promise. Go on about your business. I mean, after you read this.
I had the pleasure of winning a recent Tag You're It challenge, which means I have the honor of being the Guest Designer for the current challenge! So I made you this tag:
The tag top was die cut with a NBUS "Pinpoint Dome Tag Decorations" die from Poppystamps and embossed with a Cuttlebug e/f. The bottom of the tag was cut with an MFT Die-namics "Tag, You're It" die using cherry covered pp from my stash. The two were taped together on the back and belted with Washi tape. The fishtail flags were handmade from Washi covered cardstock and the center flag is stamped with the CFC stamp "Out Loud." The sediment is from SU and the center cherry focus pocus is fussy cut from a piece of pp I have.

I was going to share with you about how I am doing on the increased dosage of medicine for one of my ail mints. About how I have less fatigue and I'm down to just one very long afternoon nap, but about how now I'm experiencing yet another difficult side effect in the form of fatigain. Prior to this increase in medicine, I had been moving more and eating healthier to be fit for my trip to England in July, so this development is disheartening.
But then a dear friend wrote to share that her husband is not well and he will be facing surgery soon and one of her sons is also ill. Another friend is facing brain cancer surgery and another friend's wife is declining in her battle with cancer. Yet another friend is dealing with family mental health issues and my own son is struggling with a debilitating attack of gout.
Unfortunately, there are many folks not included above. Thinking of my friends and family with serious crosses to bear and dialing in on my Perspective Button, I am reminded that weight gain caused by medication is not something to be upset about in the grand scheme of things. Especially when the medicine is helping.
So never mind. My British friends will love me even if I'm a flufflier version of myself. All the better for hugging, right?! So big hugs to you if you have serious issues on your plate right now!
