3 More Days Of School Left!

It is almost time for the happy dance! I am so ready for school to be out. This past week has been terrible for me at school. I'm one of the cashiers that ring up the children when they come thru the lunchroom. Since it is the end of the year, no charges are allowed. I have had to take away so many lunches that it has made me ill with parents in general. If they don't have money on their account, they cannot eat what is on the menu, they have to get a PB&J, it breaks my heart when I have to take a hamburger or taco(stuff they like) in exchange for a pbj. Thank goodness only 3 more days. I can't take too many more days of tears. Moms and Dads, please keep money on your babies accounts! There, I've said my piece. Sorry!
Now on to stitching news, I am waiting for my Fair and Square partner! I already have my pattern picked out, I need to pick up a couple of floss colors from Crescent Colors, I just haven't had a chance to get to the cross stitch shop yet. If anyone is reading, I love the design! I hope you do too!
On a more somber note, if possible, please keep my sister in law April in your prayers. April has MS, and she has gotten so worse that she no longer can walk and her hands shake so bad that she can't even cross stitch now. She is depressed really bad, down on God, she is shrinking away. Does anyone know much about MS? I'm ashamed to say that I don't really know alot about her disease, I've spent this weekend learning alittle. I'll be watching and taking care of her some this summer. Her kids are only 4 and 9. It's a shame. And her husband is not helping matters much. I certainly hope I haven't depressed you, just thought if she had little prayers sent her way, it can't help!
Will post more tomorrow! It is stitching time now!

Hi Donna...You have motivated me to select a design for the Fair and Square, have not even given it a thought until now.
I do not know mcuh about MS but I am sure it is quite difficult to deal with. My prayers will be with April during this trying time.

I've not even thought about picking a pattern for fair and square yet :) But someday soon...
I will definitely keep April in our prayers.

I will pray for April. A friend of my mums has it and has for about 10 years now. It was very difficult for his wife to deal with at first and lots of changes had to be made. He has carers that come to the house now a days.
What is fair and square?
