Life update and blog award to share

Well, my weekend did not get off to a good start.  Friday lunchtime I got a panicked phone call from my mom friend who was attending the school Gr.3 field trip to the National Art Gallery.  My middle son, Joel, was being taken away in an ambulance after suffering a very severe asthma attack!  I rushed to the Children's Hospital and thankfully he was there with his teacher and a mom volunteer, who happened to be an ER nurse (and his guardian angel that day I swear).  Joel was also covered in hives so the doctors weren't sure if he was having an anaphylactic reaction to some allergy or if it was purely his asthma, so he ended up having epinephrine as well as oral steroids and ventolin.  We were in the hospital more than 6 hours and thankfully he has made a full recovery.  I have never experienced this before and to say it has shaken me is an understatement.  To come close to possibly losing your child is something I never ever wish to experience again.  Angels were definitely looking after my son that day.  So this weekend we've been lying low and taking it easy and the weather has been rather wet & gloomy so it has been perfect for lazing around the house and enjoying family time!

I received this award from my sweet blogging friend, Rosie.  Thanks Rosie - it's an unusual one and sounds quite fun!

There are several rules to follow:

1. Thank and link the person who gave you the award

2. Display the award on your blog

3. Tell 6 lies and one truth about yourself or vice versa

4. Nominate 7 others and leave a message letting them know.

So here are my 6 lies and 1 truth:
1.  I dislike red wine
2.  I hate colouring with copic markers
3.  I don't own one Magnolia stamp
4.  I don't like blogging
5.  I believe in angels and the paranormal
6.  I don't like being a stay-at-home mom
7.  I  hate Cadbury's chocolate
Can you figure out the truth from the lies???  LOL.  I bet you can!
I would like to pass this award onto:-
Anyways, I managed to get a little crafting done today so hopefully I'll have something to show you tomorrow!  Thanks for stopping by and I always appreciate your visits!
