After dropping the kids off to school today, I had errands to run - library, grocery, Michael's, JoAnn's and my LNS :) so off I went...I didn't get too far, (only to the library) when my cell phone rang, oh - oh it was the school calling...Cripes! After Tuesday's accident, I get the chills answering a phone call from them...Well Katie had pleaded with me to let her go to school today so 1/2 hour into school this a.m. she started getting a headache and was in a bit of pain, so they were calling to have me come pick her up...I thought that she was pushing it, but the poor girl just does not want to miss school! So back to school to pick her up, I went. Back home we went, and I gave her the prescribed pain medicine. I was going to stay home, but the poor child is stir-crazy being at home and she talked me in to letting her ride around on the errands....so off we went again for a bit of retail therapy :) The pain medicine kicked in and she was a pleasant companion through my errands running and she enjoyed getting out a bit.
And since my anniversary IS coming up in a few short days....I decided to stimulate the economy a little....here's what I got from my LNS (I was picking up finishing work they had contracted for me) so I felt a little obligated...you know anything to make me feel better over my purchases! LOL!
Then as I was looking at the linens...I saw that they had gotten in some Graziano....I first worked with Graziano Linen when Goldie gifted me in an exchange with a cut of it and I made THIS . It turned out so well...I decided I needed to get a fat quarter of it since it was there and all....and then I saw they had the sweetest blue Graziano too...so I decided I needed IT as well....because I have an idea for a design stitched on it....it is fabulous in my head ;) Hard telling what it will look like in real life! LOL! But here's to hoping it will be just what I think it will look like in my head ;)
Blue and Beige Graziano Linen and there lying in the middle is my new pair of Gingher "Freedom"! JoAnn's had them on sale for 30% off! Whoot! Can't beat that for a Yankee Doodle Dandy!
Well dear readers, I have to work this weekend at both hospitals....ugh!....does it seem that I've been chasing my tail for the past month? It sure does seem that way to me....I'm spent -emotionally and physically....BUT we have to pay bills (which is exactly what my DH is going to say when he sees what I spent today! LOL!) So off to work I go this weekend....
I shall leave you with a picture of the young, happy couple we were 12 years ago....I guess at 37 (almost 38) we're still young (a few more wrinkles though!)...and we're still happy : ) Life throws curves and issues come up but the joy of marriage is having a partner that overlooks your faults, understands your weaknesses and loves you anyway. But at the end of the day despite the occasional disagreement and different points of view in certain instances, I not only married a man that I loved, but was he was also my best friend. I still feel that way today. I'd rather spend time with him then with anyone else in the whole world. Maybe we work out so well because we are exact opposites - He's quiet and reserved and there's nothing quiet or reserved about me. Our first date proved that...we were out to eat and he nursed a beer and shook his head while I yammered on and on...LOL! I don't know...but anyway Happy Anniversary Keith, you are my heart and love!
Until next time friends - I'm done yammering :) .....have a spectacular weekend and stitch with joy!
