Monday night late!
I will try to get the winner up for the apron give away tomorrow or Wednesday, sorry I am so behind. It is just my life right now. Don't know if I will be able to come up for air for the next two months. I will be so busy in the shop at least the next three weeks. Prom dresses and wedding dresses are coming out my ears and I had several phone calls every day I was out of town so many more will come in this next week. Gasp~!
Hub's mom was up all night last night with an ear ache, crimmy, she was in the med fast center by 8 this morning and left with 2 prescriptions. She has an infection. Any kind of infection when one is 89 is serious. I drove folks car with mom and she was pretty quiet most of the way. She needs rest, poor darling. Hubs drove our truck with his dad. We made the 5 hour trip from their house into about a 7 hour trip by stopping at the old homestead in Wieser Idaho, so dad could tromp around the land of his youth. Mom stayed in the car. She is such a trooper. No complaining. Then dad thought we were going to take them home, he forgot he had packed to come stay with us. It is difficult to be with someone with dementia on an every day basis. Hopefully we can get hub's mom rested up and take them back home next weekend.
I am very tired and will be skipping my weekly savings post. Will take it up again next Monday.
We came home to a lawn that is over grown and a pond that needed filling. The french drain is essentially done and I will try to take picks of our work up to this point tomorrow if I have time between the shop and teaching and the folks, and, and....
I was able to get all of my music pulled while at my daughters, as she has a music library like no other and I just had to tell her what I needed and she started pulling pieces and it is done! Now onto the choreography.
My daughter works way too hard. It concerns me. She does have full time live in help but her job is so stressful. I love her mother-in-law who lives with them and has since her first son was born 6 years ago. She is your typical Italian grandmother and so dedicated to her grandsons. She is a fabulous cook, and works constantly at laundry and other things. Daughter is so lucky to have this type of help and this woman never interferes in my daughters married life, she is practically perfect. I just worry about burn out and the heavy caseload daughter has,the criminals she deals with, the lack of support she receives on the state and local level. Her specialty is repeat DUI's, forgeries, and drug cases. She and her husband make a good living but at what cost? Hopefully she will be able to break into another form of law in another few years. She is very, very good at what she does. And when you are very good you get very used.
I was able to get 7 cowgirl costumes done and sashes and sleevelettes done for daughters 2 ballet classes while I was away. Yes daughter still teaches one night a week. It is her hobby and believe me she needs this. I also caught up the mending, and hemmed several pairs of pants, altered a few dresses for daughter.
I haven't talked to my twin in 10 days and I am anxious to catch up with her.
I have to pay bills and get accounts squared away tomorrow. So I am signing off.
