Friday, Mom is Up!

     Mom is up early and she is moving so much better.  I am going to get her to make cookies today.  She makes a Swedish sour cream sugar cookie that is so good.  We will drive her half-way tomorrow to her home in Montana and then my brother will meet us and pick her up.  D#2 came home yesterday and she is in a foul mood, but what is new.  Until she gets a job I am afraid she will be a grouch.  She can go be a grouch some where else.

     Out My Window:  It is getting hotter!  It has been so nice all week, but the hot weather is coming in.  I feel that all I have done this week is cook and take care of a sick person.  Hold it that is what I have done.

      I have to get everything in my shop done by the end of next week.  We will be leaving for a family reunion.  I need to get money ahead for that.  Ugh!  I will need at least $500.00.  I had better get cracking.  I am dreading August coming up.  No money for bills in the studio.  Scary.

Have a great and productive day!



  1. I'm so happy to hear your Mom is up and about! Good luck in August, keep us posted, and we'll cheer you on!

  2. Yay that your mom is improving so much! Glad to hear you are getting some family support from your brother. Saves you some time and gas. I say give grouchy d#2 some of grandma yummy cookies and tell her to smile! ;)

    Now we need to help you adjust your outlook for August. We can't have that negativity. It won't help. You ARE going to be able to cover the bills somehow and everything will be ok.

    I think you need to sit down with your family and have one of those family meetings that Judy at We might be poor but we're happy has. Lay it all out and have some people pull up their socks and start helping the family out! You can't carry the burden alone. Hugs!!!

  3. I am so glad your mom is feeling better..and disgruntled daughters are best ignored. Don't let her bring you down.

    As for August you are going to be ok!! We are all sending you happy good thoughts and somehow you will get through. I agree you can't carry everything by yourself though


  4. I'm glad that you're mum is improved and able to be up and about and I can commiserate with you on grumpy daughters!!

    the new cleaning contract sounds really good too, so fingers crossed that August goes well for you.

  5. Kim,
    I'm so glad your Mom is doing you need to find some time for YOU. ;)!
