Crazy at Our House
The last couple of weeks have been crazy, both good and bad. James (our 18 year old) has had his truck break down several times in the last few weeks, so we have been taking him to work each day. We got a new car for him today, yea, something that isn't almost as old as he is. The last few weeks of school are beyond crazy, bad and good. One kid done, another has 2 days left.
Last week was my (Tanya's) birthday and I know, we never got around to a giveaway. We found out last week that my dad has Colon Cancer. We don't have a prognosis yet, still waiting on results. "Happy Birthday and by the way I have Cancer" are not two things you want to hear in the same call. Today, Jared turns 10. We are taking Jared and some of his friends from school to a movie to celebrate on Thursday. Seven kids, we don't know very well who are on the Autistic Spectrum should be fun, right? Wish us luck.
On Saturday, we are participating in our first Craft Fair/Boutique. We have been trying to get everything ready for that, along with everything else that is happening around us. We have at least 3 quilts, lots of pot holders, a few table runners and some pillows that are waiting for pictures. Richard hates posts without a picture, so I added what our banner looks like.
To add insult to injury, Richard's sewing machine was having major tension issues. It is in the shop, we don't know if it just needed a major cleaning and tuneup or if "Princess Trouble", ie Julia, adjusted it too much. He is currently back to using the same model of machine he started sewing on (Rebecca's Singer). It is funny to hear him complain about how small the Singer is compared to his larger Janome He keeps wondering how he ever quilted anything bigger than a table runner on it in the past.
If we survive Jared's birthday party and Craft fair, we will have a giveaway next week. Hopefully life will slow down a little and we can get pictures done soon and I can get some more sleep.
