Family comes first.

Hello Tadpoles,
   I have to apologize to everyone. I have not been a good blogger. I have been taking care of family issues. I have a disorder, Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome. I have had 3 surgeries on my left shoulder. I take alot of medications to help deal with the extreme pain. I'm not going to harp on my medical issues. 
   I just wanted to let everyone know what I have been doing and not doing. My Mother is having a hard time walking. She has a nerve disease that effects her back. She has to have someone with her at all times. Then my Father has been diagnosed with the onset of Parkinson's. The doctor said that since Dad was in the Army and he was exposed to Agent Orange that studies have show a correlation.
   My family has gone through a lot with my Dad lately. He is 6"7 and 189 lbs. At one time he, weighed 240 lbs. Dad started to loss weight extremely fast. After several doctors, it was determined that he needed a pacemaker. After the implant of the pacemaker, dad's weight is at a steady 195. 
   With the onset of Parkinson, a person starts to hunch over. Dad has to use a cane too. We don't like to let him walk with out someone with him. He is very unsteady on his feet. He scuffles his feet making his gait very bad. He has a hard remember things and has a hard time to grasp things. Like today, I had to help him sign some papers. It is so hard to see a Strong Man, my hero, to have to rely on his wife and kids to do things that he was extremely well. 
   So my Mother, sister and I have be helping with Dad. So I have been extremely busy, with my Mom and Dad. I am working on several things at this time. I am working on jewelry, a guest post, interview of a fellow Blogger, and my newly received Barbie Doll'd Nail Printer. I will go into that later.
    Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers. I am working extremely hard to keep my blog going.

Storage box

Hello Tadpoles,
   I just wanted to let everyone know that I had found a storage box for my plates. I have several different brands of plates that do not fit in my Bundle Monster binders. So while I was at The Dollar General, my mind fell into "Oh, that will work for this or that mode?". Do you do that to. I was in the box storage aisle and found different size boxes. The boxes came in several different motifs. I decided to pick the "homely" type.
I love the saying.
It is secured by velcro.
I decided to use a sticky note to let me know what is the box.
The Dollar General had two more size boxes. I might go and get the next box up. I hope that my discover can help everyone else.

Hello Tadpoles,
   I just wanted to share with everyone my haul for Rite Aid. I know what you are thinking, "She finds all the great deals". This was pure luck, I stopped at my local Rite Aid and found all these goodies. I decided to buy all of the polishes. I know that I will be giving some of these away. So here we go. Please don't pass out..

So as you can see that I bought a Dr. Pepper at $1.69. So all of the polishes and other things cost me $51.94. These are my first Nicole by OPI.
