Monday, Happy belated Fathers Day!

Well Saturday evening hubs and I were watching a 24 part documentary on a history channel (yes we are docu nuts) and Hubs phone rang abut 10 p.m.  I could tell it was a serious phone call and soon Hubs handed me the phone.  It was Lil sis and she was hysterical.   She was coming home from Walla Walla and hit a deer.  She was going 60 miles and hour and both her air bags deployed.  Her car was totaled.  She was okay just very upset and in shock.

Now it was about 1 hour and 15 minutes to Dayton Washington where the sheriff took her.  We drove in the dead of night and did not get home until 1 in the morning.  I was worried about Lil sis and her dog.  I stayed the night with them and both came into the house and drank and drank.  Lil sis downed 4 large tumblers of ice water.  This is a sign of shock .(excessive thirst).  We did not go to sleep until 4 a.m.as Lil sis was too keyed up. The sheriff was very nice.

So our family has had 4 accidents in the past two weeks.  Elder daughter hit a large dog and did minor damage to her car, then Second daughter hit a deer going home last week, I damaged my car fault of the dog, and now Lil sis who has to win every fight totals her car.  We all feel like we are cursed.

I slept late on fathers day and when I got home took a long hot bath and then whipped up this pie for hubs.  We took a long walk on Saturday and Sunday along the levy as the weather was great!  It is going to finally turn hot here and it is about time. We had a nice dinner on the deck for father's day.

The house inspector is here going through every nook and cranny.  Makes me wonder how long our inspection report will be.  I don't even care.  If something makes this house fail I will take it off the market.

Hubs gets more and more grouchy about the sale of the house and it is hard to live with.  I am keyed up and sick to my stomach so much of the time, because I don't know what will make him blow.  The painter set him off today because he showed up and hubs does not want people around his house all the time.  I just shake my head.  I wish I had not sold the house, as I don't know how much more of this I can take.

I have three things to finish today in the shop besides cleaning it. 
1. finish regalia dress
2. baste sleeves in a wedding dress and get it ready for a fitting.
3. corset a wedding dress and get it ready for a fitting.
4. clean up the shop.
5. alter another wedding dress
6. hem and steam two bridesmaid dresses
So I have plenty to do.

I will have to take Lil sis to the car rental place today when she calls.  Also there is a house I want to go look at that came for sale in the Orchards that looks interesting.

Tomorrow we meet with a builder to talk about building a house.

Wish me luck, I need it!

Have a great and productive day staying positive while you are in the negative.

  2. I hope your Lil Sis is ok, I know you are all so close and always helping each other out, how scary.

    As for your hubs, I hope he comes around soon - the last thing you want is to be stuck moving when things are even worse!

  3. Too bad about the car accident! I cannot imagine husband going though a house build! Maybe you can call the person with regalia and have her bring the feather purse back so you can take a picture.

    1. They wreck so many cars, and then again we kill so many of them.

  5. I am glad your sis is OK. Sorry about the car.
    I can't imagine your hubby doing well with a house build - if this is stressing him. I worry about this stress on him and his health.
    I hope things work out.

  6. I kind of want to build a house when we move from this one because I want specifics and we most likely will never find them in a house already built. I think TheHub would be fine during the build process, but the builders would not. He tends to be obsessive compulsive and overthinks everything.
