    wednesday hello

    This will be a quick hi and bye
    the drive to the hospital is a long one. Mom did fine.The surgery went better than we could have expected. Prayers sure were answered.
    Be back later

    Re: wednesday hello

    Great to hear that surgery went well and now prayers for an easy, swift recovery for her (and you).
    Man - you sure look pretty good in the mornings, Blondie if that's you up there! LOL!

    Not much on the agenda for today except work and hope to tackle some taxes tonight. Rains coming again and everyone is on flood watch. Fortunately our house has never been a problem but feel for others it may affect.

    Hope the sun comes out for everyone today at some point.


    What if you woke up today and the only things you had were the things you thanked God for yesterday? :icon_hug:quilting trish


      Re: wednesday hello

      Good morning, all! Signed in real quick before work to see if Blondie had updated us - so glad to hear Mom's surgery went well. Have a great morning, all!

        PTL!!!! Im so glad to here shes doing good.
        Have a blessed day in HIS name!


          Re: wednesday hello

          Good to hear Blondie. Hope her recovery goes just as smoothly!

          Not much today. Having a birthday lunch with some friends today. I am making lasagna and home made buns for her birthday which was a couple of weeks ago. Yum, yum!

          Another storm coming today. 30cm of snow (12 inches) and then changing to rain. Now that could mean that I have nothing to do but quilt.

          Well Happy Hump Day,

          Blessed are the children of the piecemakers for they shall inherit the quilts!

            Hi all,
            Blondie - Glad all went well for Mom! Continuing prayers for her recovery and your safe travel!
            Trish - Hope you stay high and dry! Well - not sure about the "high"!
            Paula - Hope you are still feeling good! I was happy to read you got to enjoy the "feast"!
            Deb - Have a good day at work!
            Monique - 12" inches of snow.....ugggh! Your birthday lunch sounds most delicious!

            Owner of the store I managed called Monday to tell me things are very bad and we are in dire straits right now. Not just my store but the whole company. He asked me to cut another 15 hours a week (I've already cut 115 per month!) and there will be zero new merchandise coming in. The really stressful news was that he is trying to get the mall to lower our rent significantly and if they don't we will definitely be closing and will have to do so within ONE weeks time! The waiting to know is killing me. I just want this all over with as it has been hanging over my head for 2 years now. I am being proactive and packing up what we do not use and throwing away junk that has accumulated over the years. Yesterday I had a sinus headache with this weather and last night I also got a migraine so my head is throbbing! I know this seems crazy but pray that I find out soon that I can just close this chapter of my life and move on! BF has been pretty good because I think he has finally realized that the stress has really caught up with me. He told me it is time for him to take care of me because I have taken care of him for years. In the early years I paid all the bills when we first started living together so he is right about that. Since I was 17 I have taken care of myself and this would be the first time in my life I depended on anyone else to to that for me.
            I feel like a broken, whiny record! Just want to let you all know I appreciate you letting me dump on you!
            On the bright side, I have been building up my stash and will be able to quilt for months on what I have accumulated!
            Today is the beginning of Lent and I have gave up carbs til Easter!

              Re: wednesday hello

              So good to have an update, Blondie! PTL Glad all went well. May you and your mom now get some much needed rest!
              Monique - keep the snow where you are...please do not share! Happy lunch special! We are so ready for Spring! Loving the greens that are starting to show!Q Trish, sorry about the rain, but remember the sun is shining behind those clouds and will make itself known soon. I'm serving in the Day Care today and have 3 special boys (3 and (2)5's) and one brand new precious baby girl. I get to rock the baby while the boys play cowboy, pirate, and knights today! Parents are in training for overseas work. God's blessings on each of your days. Love, Debi

                dear patticakes, please know that i am thnking of you... i have been threw the "Just want to move forward" sensations... and moving forward is work... but i can tell you for myself i now feel stronger than i have in years... i give you permission to move forward... the journey of recovery begins with action even if the action hurts other people, in the long run... i think it is best... only thing is... this is your decision. none of this is intentional... just this times we are in...

                heading to my DD school to raise eyebrows... i want her tested for dyslexia. she told me kids are now teasing her because she is slow at math... breaks my heart kids tease my child in the first place... keeping it together and with my head held high... must dash off for now... see ya out here...

                come tomorrow... there will be clouds... stick out my chin and grin and SAY>>>>
                all the best


                  Re: wednesday hello

                  patticakes, what a stressful situation for you for sure! Hang in there, sounds like BF is totally supportive - that's great! We're here for you!

                    Re: wednesday hello

                    Good morning, everyone!! I'm echoing all the well wishes, warm thoughts, praises and sending sympathies where needed. I'm thinking of Debi rocking that baby and wonder how long the boys will play without banging each other over the head with a plastic sword or tying each other up. I dealt with a 4 year old yesterday who threw herself on the floor at the library and screamed about 200 decibels because she didn't want to leave. Did you ever see the video on AFVs where the little boy throws a tantrum but when he finds no one is running he quits and tries to find where they are and then throws his little tantrum again? Nanas don't deal well with tears . . . don't kids realize everything should run smoothly?

                    Have a day all to myself today so I'm hoping to make some progress on the Zoe quilt that is in the frame. Maybe inspiration will come as I sit in front of it.

                    A funny to share - yesterday was Rita's 4th birthday (the library tantrum thrower). When I picked them up yesterday I told her "Happy Birthday, Honey." She gave me a solemn look and told me "It's not my birthday anymore, I've already opened my presents."
                    Sometimes, when there's a raging fire,
                    it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

                          Re: wednesday hello

                          Blondie -glad things went well with you mom's surgery. Still praying she has a wonderful recovery.

                          Ginampls - Good luck at your daughters school. Hopefully they will test her.

                          Patticakes - Sorry to hear things are not going as well. Set back and let dear boyfriend baby you. Take care of yourself the rest will take care of itself.

                          Sandy - The mouths of Babes. We had our two grandsons Sunday while there mom and dad moved things out of my house, storage and into the house they are renting, the oldest grandson went up to my husband and said "Gamps look at your grandson". The youngest one was at the stairs pulling down the baby gate and about to head up. All my husband could do was just laugh. I miss them not being at night and first thing in the morning but at least now I can sew at night without guilt because the oldest one wants to cuddle.

                          Well we are in for a rainy day today all day until tomorrow morning. So stay dry and stay warm.

                          Happy quilting

                            Hi everyone!
                            Blondie, glad to hear the news.
                            Gina: You are well within your rights to ask the school to test her for hearing, vision, and cognitive development. I had a hard time with math and didn't "get it" until I was in college. After dealing with my daughter's hearing loss and other things, it is amazing what the schools have to do to help them. BUT, you have to be the one that makes the school acknowledge that there is something wrong. They will try to shuffle them along, if they can, because specialized instruction can be expensive. It may be that your daughter just needs some extra help with parts of math, or she could have some serious issues. I found that if you come at it from trying to help your daughter find a solution to her problem, instead of being upset with the teachers, school, or district you get much farther. They are not so defensive, because you are not attacking them or the job they are trying to do.

                            Patti: I hope you get an answer one way or the other. My guess is that you will be closing the store. The owner has already had several close calls with eviction, and now it sounds like the vendors are no longer willing to send merchandise, which tells me that he owes them serious money too. Make sure that you and your staff cash your paychecks immediately, preferably at the bank where the account is. If you aren't getting paid, stop working for him! As my husband says, "My loyalty to this company is only good as long as my paychecks clear the bank!" He has been burned a couple of times by owners. Smart girl for building your stash! I do that with my fabric and my pantry! Fill 'er up when the times are flush so you can make it through the leaner times! It is coming in handy now!
                            I need to get off of here and get some house work done before I loose the whole day!
                            Take care!
                            Be who you are and say what you feel
                            because those who mind don't matter,

                              Just stopping by to say hello to everyone. Going to be a quiet day around my house. Last night I finished up the top for a wall hanging and think I'll take a short break before I quilt it. I do have plenty of other projects I can work on.

                              Glad to hear that things are improving health-wise for everyone. I also can report on the surgery end for my mom - actually no surgery in her future on her cataracts. At least not for a while, maybe eventually.

                              This evening we have Ash Wednesday services at church, which will start with a soup supper. Hurray!! No cooking tonight!!
