Silly Mistake & TWO Winners

Something I’ve noticed…it seems strange (not really but you know what I mean) to me that hardly anyone is commenting on my blog since I’ve began my giveaways.  Hmmmm….what’s up with that?

I dunno, just thinking out loud because it has me wondering.

Anyway, my silly mistake (and why I didn’t post a winner for Day 4:  I guess I was more tired than I realized.  The hubby had to work yesterday, I was off and, in my tired state, I accidentally took my morning meds twice.  I have gotten to the point I can handle my meds without getting too tired but a double dose?  OMG, when I realized what I had done I was already getting dizzy and sleepy. 

Geez!  What a big ol’ dummy I can be sometimes.

Needless to say, I called the hubby who came home to take care of me and called the doc who told me what to expect and when to go to the ER if need be. See, big.ol’.dummy!!! 

THAT would be why I didn’t post a winner yesterday…I was in a coma for hours (but the hubs woke me up periodically and he says I was a raving lunatic when he’d finally get me roused) and when I did finally wake from that long slumber, I was a total idiot who had no business posting anything to the internet. LOL

But, to catch up, lets get down to business and do TWO drawings today….

4-4That means that Shelly, aka BlueRidgeLady, is Saturday’s winner! YAY Shelly!!!

Hi Barb! Congratulations on your 100th post! I would love to be included! How special to get something you made! I will send email info.
I know what you mean about meds and moods.. Medicine is expensive even with insurance and a copay!! Then half the time we need a medicine that doesnt come in a generic! I'm glad we all have each other for friendship and support :D

And here is todays randomly chosen winner:

4-5YAY for Renee of Funky and Folky Sculptures!! (I don’t care that she said she didn’t want to put added pressure on me…giving is the best way of getting pleasure and peace, so she’s stuck as a winner! LOL)

Barb, I know that giving ALWAYS makes me feel better. It is easy to forget how lucky we are so it is important to focus on gratitude.
I would love to participate in your giveaway but I don't want to put added pressure on you! Visiting your blogs and being inspired by your posts is enough :)

Now, I just need to get all my packages addressed and ready to mail so I can get these first five in the mail tomorrow.  And art, I want to do some art today…and watch my DVRed shows…and laundry….oh, so much to do, so little time.  I also have some finished journal pages and an art piece I’ve been working on that I want to post today.  Hopefully I can get to it later today, if not then I’ll post them tomorrow.

I hope your Sunday is a fabulous one!

Peace & Love,


  1. What?!? I totally missed your giveaway! Maybe blogger did something stupid - for a while now my reading list hasn't updated properly?!?

    But don't worry, you can send all your gifts to meeeee ;) :) :D

    ♥ art photography + gorgeous stationery

  2. hey ou! you do need to be careful with your meds!!!! of course you don't need me to tell you that but non the less!!!
    i am sorry not be in your give away! i tried to post but the whole thing froze at the time. better luck next time.

    xox t

  3. gosh barb! that isn't good!!
    better get ya one of those dose remember the ones grandma had
    now you see why!

    all these weather pressures have been affecting me...i slept a lot yesterday too.


    i don't know you haven't gotten comments
    i don't think it is because you 'have' giveaways
    i thought those were supposed to 'draw' comments to you!


    could just be they are busy with church stuff
    this week is a busy week
    (i have heard the customer's talking)
    about busy this and that for church this week

    maybe that is all it is

    are the books over to the side books you want?
    or you already have them?

  4. Yes, I agree with Mar, you have got to get one of those dose packs that have the day on them! Too dangerous to be risking a double dose or a forgotten dose! I haven't been commenting maybe but I assure you I read every post!!

  5. Oh my gosh Barb! I'm so glad you're okay! That's scary stuff...

  6. Hi, Barb! I had to take a lot of meds for a while myself, and it can be so tricky! Sometimes not taking any, sometimes taking them twice, always wondering whether I'd taken them or not. I finally ended up getting one of those weekly pill organizers from the drug store. For a while, I had one that had spots for am and pm ... now I just keep everything in a giant one that has one spot for each day. I cannot even begin to tell you how many times it saves me in a week! Reminding me to take pills I've forgotten or that I've already taken some. If you don't have a pill organizer, I'd highly recommend it! They come in different sizes and colors ... just get one that you think your daily pills will fit into. If you have morning meds and evening meds, you could get two colors, one for am and one pm. Don't want you having to go to the ER! No sirree! That's expensive! Take care of yourself! :-)

  7. I wish you lived closer, I really need a friend to hug.

  8. <---this young chicken has one of those old granny dose know, for am, lunch, snacktime, and pm? I OD'd once because of taking meds twice...I feel your pain. It was awful! Morphine tends to know you on your arse if you take too much! Hugs, hope you are feeling better now.

  9. Hey lady, I have done the same dumb thing a few times. But in my case it means that I should be able to run a marathon with the RA drugs or eat really bad food with the reflux drugs or maybe be able to do both with the Hot Flash drugs, LOL. Mostly it is because I can't remember if I took them and an hour later do it. Ain't old age grand?!

  10. Hi Barb!!! I'm so glad you are OK!!!! I had to get an organizer for my helps so much. I told my husband he needs to get one!
    I am so excited that I won the giveaway!! Thank you for including me! Have a good day everyone.


  11. I'm glad you're out of your coma, because I have something for you. I see 500 Handmade Books on your wishlist, and I was going to list that on PBS today. No coincidences, huh? It seems particularly appropriate since you're the one who alerted me to Paperback Book Swap. Now, how to get your mailing addy?


  12. Barb, I have done the same thing with meds! I am too forgetful to self-medicate! I'm glad you are okay... that is SCARY!

    I'm SO excited to be the chosen winner! I can't wait!

    Renee :)

  13. i know what you mean about noone commenting.
    I posted a big ole entry about getting proposed to and didn't get a single freakin comment on it.

  14. ryc: i wasn't sure if you were reading the emails or not since I wasnt getting any replies (comments) to them. And I just touched on it in that anyway. (and I wasn't referring to you specifically in my previous comment either...none of the people I read/note here commented on it. NONE)

    I told him long ago I just wanted a ring.
    Not sure now if I even want that.
    ok..maybe I do. maybe.
    but he knows I'm not wanting vows yet. We've talked about it.
    And the moment has passed anyway. He prolly doesn't even remember making that comment anymore, so crisis averted. I don't have to worry about it.


Thank you so much for taking the time to drop by. I am open to any comments, questions, suggestions, critiques, etc, so lay it on me...
Peace & Love,
