Saturday, I'm off (like a prom dress)



     I made it through my day and I am happy to say I was able to actually quit sewing about 3 p.m.  I also went and had a pedicure and a foot massage.  It was lovely.

Several things have happened in the last couple of days now that I can come up for air let me tell you about them.

Hubs good friend who shares the High School job with him, called Hubs when he was out fishing and told him that his brother had passed away unexpectedly and could Hubs come into town and take the High School until further notice, so Hubs has been gone every evening, and will continue into the near future.

My Aunt Anne called late this afternoon and was so upset as my Other Aunt had passed away from covid. My dad had a step brother and he was married to my Aunt Pat.  I always liked her although we rarely saw each other.  Aunt Anne and she were very close.  It is hard as you grow older and you start to lose people, you soon feel like you are the last man standing.  I feel very bad for my Uncle Vergel, this will be very hard on him.  Aunt Pat's older sister died from covid three days earlier. It is so sad.  Get vaccinated!!!!!!!

Found out that only one of hub's sisters and her husband are coming up so that is good as we will have a place to sleep them.  They are coming Sunday afternoon and will leave Wednesday morning.  I hope to be able to get home before dark tomorrow so I can get a little work done.  Might call my Lil sis for some help on Sunday if I feel too behind.  We will see.

Right now I am tired and need a good nights sleep.  I made some good money today with all those last minute alterations.  I actually turned down work today.  Don't be shocked.  But enough is enough.

I am motivated by money, but as my daughter (the attorney)says, "More money? It's not worth it." 

Tomorrow I will be up early to go shopping in Spokane.  I sure hope we can find somethings.

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



  1. So sorry for the families losses. Hugs to all.
    "I am motivated by money" - I agree with your daughter. It isn't worth your health and sanity to get more money. Slow down - it will happen. Enjoy life a little.

  2. A pedicure and foot massage sounds lovely. Glad you were able to sneak some me time into your busy day. Happy Saturday!

  3. I'm very sorry to hear about the passing of your family members. Sending good thoughts to you. And yes, get vaccinated!!!

    Very happy you were able to quit "early" & get a pedicure & foot massage. I haven't had one in a year+ and would love a massage at least some day. Maybe in the future

  4. I am so sorry for your losses. It is sad when the older members of the family pass.

  5. Im sorry for your losses. Yes, I remember how hard losing people were on my parents. Now starting to see the loss of friends of my mother in law.

  6. I am so sorry for the passing of your aunt and her sister. Please keep yourself safe. Celie

  7. Your title made me snort my drink. Thanks for the laugh.
