I'm sure having no one to take care of for four days helped a lot. She was able to get lots of sleep. We had lots of fun. I walked with the oldest DGD at her school's walk-a-thon on Friday. Took the girls to the children's zoo on Saturday. I really tried talking DD into staying home so I could have the girls to myself, but she can't stay away from animals any more than her girls. Good thing it's a small zoo. I did get to go to Hobby Lobby one day. Most of the papers were on sale so I bought some Christmas papers. I'm glad I had the 2-year-old with me or I would have spent every penny I had in there. I also had to remind myself I only had one suitcase with me so everything had to fit with my clothes. I really miss having Hobby Lobby close. When I lived in Nebraska I lived only 5 blocks from that store. That was before I got hooked on stamping. Now the nearest one is 250 miles from me. That's probably not a bad thing for me. Now I need to get creating once I get back into a routine. I'm wishing I took today off from work but I only work hours. I have a coupld sympathy cards to send out.... again. The day I left town my SIL's mother passed away and my son's boss's daughter, who was also my classmate, lost her struggle with cancer. They lost a son last year due to many years of major health problems. I feel so sorry for the family. I hope this doesn't mean I'm going to be making lots more sympathy cards, except to build up my stash.
Glad you're home, Debbie and your daughter is doing so well. I am sorry to hear sympathy cards are back on your 'to do' list.
