So long Kim.....was nice having you as part of the group and will be looking for you around the boards!

Welcome back Jen! Glad you could return.

Didn't get around to making these cards this past weekend so this coming weekend for sure. Why do I always wait until the last minute? UGH!

Zella:

Thanks for asking. She finished her physical therapy last week and can walk around with a walker, but at age 79, she's a long ways aways from going back to running her restaurant 7 days week. As my main job is tax consulting, it's just been a brutal 5 weeks getting my work done as well as running my mom's restaurant, but I survived (just barely!). So Happy April 15th!

Mika

LOL!! I bet you did breathe a sigh of relief when the 15th was over! Glad to hear that your mom is progressing....yes, it will take time but it's good to see her going in the positive direction. What a woman to still be running a restaurant at her age...and I'm sure she is just counting the days til she can get back.

Me, too, and so is my 82-year old aunt who also works at the restaurant 7 days a week. My sister and I can't seem to convince them to retire.

Some people are like that - but you know what? It's what keeps them active and going. It's a good thing. I remember my grandparents putting in a large garden even into their 80's....it wasn't until their 90's that they really slowed down and that was just because their bodies gave out. My mom (who is 81) has a 91 year old boyfriend and he is still very active....he has a whole shop (equipment you would find in a professional machine & wood shop) in his garage and still is turning out amazing items! I just hired him to make 2 shadow boxes for a project here at work. He even makes those triangle flag boxes for veteran's flags that are given at funerals.....and they are better than the ones you buy in the store!!

My cards are on their way. I sent them priority and was told they'd be there April 20th - hopefully that isn't too late to be included in this round. I am so sorry about sending them after the deadline, been swamped with work the past two weeks and I should have made them sooner rather than later.

YEAH! Time to start stalking the mailman!

Speaking of the mailman - guess what he did yesterday? UGH! I have the kind of mailbox that doesn't have a flag so when we have outgoing mail, we clip it to the front and it is always taken....yesterday I come home and we got mail....but there were my 7 cards still clipped to the front! Now think about it - he had to reach over those to put our mail in the box.....oh, and gave us mail that wasn't ours! UGH!!!!

There must be something freaky going on with the mail everywhere.....

Last Monday, we didn't have any mail in our mailbox when we got home from work. It made me nervous because I was expecting a certain piece of mail that day that I knew had already been mailed. I checked our mailbox 4 times that evening and then again the next morning and I told my husband I had a bad feeling about it....

Then Tuesday when I got home, there was a message from a U.S. Postal Inspector saying someone had been arrested with a bunch of mail and there were several pieces belonging to me and my husband

Evidently our neighbor two houses down noticed a freaky woman walking down our street, talking to herself and holding her shirt like she was hiding something underneath it. The neighbor called the police and they found a bunch of mail under her shirt. So at least we got our mail back....

Needless to say, I sent DH out to buy a locking mailbox right away! We have lived in our house for over 18 years and this is the first time mail had been taken....

Now it will be interesting to see if our mailperson can stuff my swap envelopes through the slot in the new mailbox

WOW! Now I have never heard of that happening! Ok, well maybe heard of it but never knew anyone that it happened to.....unbelievable! I guess that just goes to show that people will do just about anything. Do you think she was looking for cash, checks, or credit cards....or trying to do identity theft? What is this world coming to??

Oh - and update on our mail: the cards were gone when I got home from work yesterday...I thought the mailman took them....hmmm, now I'm wondering who took them...LOL!!!

Not really sure what the freaky lady was looking for but she didn't get anything good from our mail that day -

On a happier note, check out where I will be in one month:

Welcome to San Diego Scrap Inn

I think I have posted about this place before. My sister and a bunch of our friends have been going to this place for 3 years now - always over Memorial Day weekend. And this year, we added Sunday night so that will be stamping time from 10am Friday, May 24th through 4pm Monday, May 27th. Yippee!!

I emailed Mika about this fun weekend and while she is super busy helping with her Mom's restaurant, she knows she can pop in spontaneously.

Barb - I'm taking your flowers card swap with me to do at the house
