I'm back!!!!! Thanks AT&T!

Hi All,
I'm sorry I haven't been able to read or blog. We lost our phone line/DSL on Thursday! Some moron was digging and cut wires down the street! Ekk! Let me tell you, I was amazed at how needy I was to our computer! I went thru withdrawals over the weekend! My Momma invited me to use their computer, but they still live in the ice age with dial up! ( Yeah, you heard me Patrick!) I do love my family! This will make my brother laugh!
So glad to be able to blog! Thank you to everyone who left such caring comments about our Uncle Louie! Bless you all! The viewing for Uncle Louie was incredible. Over 800 guests came to pay their respects for the most down to earth man I've known. Listening to the preacher talk about Uncle Louie made me proud that Louie was well loved and knew Jesus. I know now that Louie wouldn't have wanted his family and friends to see him worn down by cancer and chemo treatments. God took him home early so Louie wouldn't have to endure pain and sadness.
I'll have pictures for ya'll tomorrow!
Hugs my friends!

Sad news.....

John's Uncle Louie passed away yesterday. We had just found out he had cancer about three weeks ago. I am so depressed because I'm worrying about Aunt Willie. How can you go on, only realizing that you only have 3 more weeks to live? How can you not feel like you were sick? It makes me cry to think he probably just kept shrugging off any symptoms.
I will miss him. He was one of John's favorite uncles and our yearly trip to Tugaloo State Park for a cookout will dearly be missed now. I will be absent for a couple of days, so my blogging might be scarce.
Hug your loved ones today!

Time slips by....

Where does the time go? It doesn't seem like it's been a week since I last posted. What have I been doing?
Well, I've been stitching my Prairie Schooler exchange, I've been stitching on my Ornament exchange, plus trying to finish Edgar's Quaker to send to Carol. So I don't have any pictures to show you.
My son Jacob has been under the weather, he is tired and very fatigued. I'm making him a doctor's appointment tomorrow. I'm wondering if he is anemic? Don't know, but we had a cancer scare with him a couple of years ago with these same symptoms. So I'm not fooling around this time.
School is back to normal. We do have a 3 day weekend, so yeah for that, I've been cleaning up the house so that I can plan a stitching weekend for me!
For all of you up north, I hope you can stay warm! It is suppose to go down to 11 degrees tonight! Better leave the water dripping so the pipes won't freeze. It has been very cold down here in GA. Brrrr Rabbit!
Well, I'm off to go warm up by the fire!

Terry's Halloween RR

I've finished Terry's RR and will ship to Ulla tomorrow! Yeah! I need to finish up Edgar's Quaker and get his on to either Carol or Valerie. Busy, busy , busy!

Back to school hasn't been too bad, the kids seem to be very laid back at this time. Give them a week or two and then they will start winding themselves up. It's been raining the past 2 days so the kids are not getting to go outside for recess. That makes for rowdy lunches. haha

Hope to have more stitchy pictures to show tomorrow!

Look at what Jacob knitted!

I am amazed at my son! He knitted this sweet little guy! He is such a great kid! He knits faster than me I tell you. I bought him some circular needles and he has promised me he'd knit me a hat! I can't wait!

This is my last weekend off. Back to school on Monday. I'm not ready to go back. I spent a great deal of my vacation on pain meds. My PSa/RA has been worse, plus my back is my worst enemy right now. I had to waste 5 hours waiting at the hospital for xrays on my back and neck. Those chairs in the waiting room are horrible. They have upped my Enbrel shots to twice a week. I really feel that it's a waste, because I feel worse than better. Oh well, I'll see my doctor on the 19th of this month and we will see.

I will have pictures of stitching tomorrow! I'm finishing up my Halloween RR, just have to stitch a tiny bit more, it's over 1 thread, so I've been dreading the stitching on that part. I have to clip on magnifiers to my glasses! What a hoot that is!

I'm jealous that my hubby will be off this next week. But, he needs the rest. He has so much planned for his week off. I'd be like, plan nothing! Just rest! So we will see!



ps: I changed again! I missed my pink!
