Scanner Issues

What in the world is going on! I've noticed the past couple of times I have tried to scan something it wouldn't work. I have an HP Photosmart C6180 All in One Printer/Scanner. Usually I just use the Scanner Wizard and it only takes a few minutes. Now all of a sudden, I get an error box saying the printer does not recognize the camera or scanner, make sure all connections are hooked up properly. I have been in an online chat for 2-3 days with HP and we tried uninstalling and reinstalling. Nothing is working. I can print on the printer....so someone is supposed to call this morning from "pay support"...not sure if the problem is with the Usb cord/ports or my computer or what! Sooo.....I can't post my new collage..and I'm frustrated not knowing what is wrong. Has anything similar happened to any of you?

Stay cool out there! It has been in the mid nineties here! Hope you all have a great weekend!! Talk to you soon!!

It Goes on and on....

Just wanted to thank you all for the get well wishes!!! They really helped lift my spirits!! I was really beginning to feel better from the pneumonia, but got a diverticulis flare up to deal with now! Had to go back down and see the doctor. He gave me two more antibiotics to take in addition the the one I am taking for the pneumonia. He suggested I have a CT scan, to make sure there wasn't more going on in there....so.....thats what I did yesterday. The worst part was drinking the disgusting stuff you have to drink for the scan! I never could finish all of it, but luckily it was enough to do the scan. When I went back to get dressed, I noticed a red blotch on my stomach, and one on my chest..HIVES!!!!!!!! They told me I was having a reaction to the contrasting dye they put in my IV. It wasn't severe, I just had a couple flare up, but had to go see another doctor, and he gave me a shot of benedryl. I was never so glad to see my bed, and got some really good rest last night! I'm getting better everyday, and look forward to making some new art, and catching up with all of you! Thank you all again for thinking about me, and visiting! See ya soon!! xox

Under the Weather

I just found out yesterday that I have pneumonia...and ya'll won't believe what happened to me driving back from the doctor. I was told to take the first antibiotic while I was still there at the doctor. So I did, then started home. I hadn't eaten much at all all day, and I began to feel dizzy and pulled into a QT store. Was trying to go to the restroom, I walked in, and the man said "hello"! Next thing I knew, I was laying in the floor! They called 911, and I was able to talk to them and didn't seem to be hurt from the fall, this kind man called my husband and told him that I passed out, scared him to death! I decided I was fine to go home. Raymond came and got me and we had to leave my car there. I was never so happy to find my bed! The Pickens County (Jasper, GA) police and EMT's were so sweet and caring, and stayed with me, they were wonderful. But guess what? I woke up this morning with a sore knee and elbow to add to the mix! Well, it sure could have been worse....I'm not going anywhere for a while I think. Hope you all are doing good, I'll see ya soon!

By The Sea


This weeks theme for Crowabout was a Sea theme! All I could think about when I was creating it, was how cold the water was at the beach the day we went. 74 degrees!!! Took me a while to take the plunge, and after I got used to it, it felt good!! Hope you all have a great 4th! We usually watch the fireworks from our deck, sometimes we see some pretty good ones, without having to drive anywhere! See yall soon!
