Default ***Misfit Monday (7-1-16)***

Happy July 1st!

My baby starts school NEXT MONTH!!!!! I am already a mess! He had pictures taken this morning and we were looking at school uniforms. It's hard just to look at them, let alone seeing him in one!

We went to the mountains for a few days for our anniversary. It was wonderful!!! We went to the Northwest part of the state which we haven't been to before - very beautiful! It was so nice to be alone and just spend time together. Preston stayed with Grandma for 5 days so he was a happy boy.

The situation with my dad is so stressful. I've gotten to the point where I just don't want to go over to his house and if I do, I make it as quick as possible. I feel like a bad daughter for not taking care of him, but he's being a horrible dad and Grandpa so this is all his choice. I've had enough.

We have plans for all 3 days to celebrate this weekend. Hopefully the rain cooperates!

Happy Canada Day Gail! I got your card - it's so fun!!! Preston really enjoyed it too

Goodness, Jennifer, hard for me to believe your sweet boy is starting school! Wow, the time flies.

So about the situation with your dad and you should not feel badly. When my mom was alive, she had emotional issues and there were times when I just had to stay away. The last three and one-half years of her life, she had to placed in a nursing home and it fell to me being the oldest to do what needed to be done for her. Amazingly, as time passed, the time with her was a blessing in so many ways. Just take it one moment at a time, do what you can and leave the rest to God.

The traffic up 95 was a challenge however, we arrived safely in Philly. We will be boarding a shuttle to the airport bright and early tomorrow morning. Our flight to Dominican Republic will take about four hours and we are looking forward to sun and beach!

Jennifer- Parents can be very challenging. Just take care of yourself and guys.
I too can't believe Preston is that old already!

Hello-

I have been making cards. I need to keep busy. So far I have made a few kids cards and about 20 birthday cards for the BRAK forum. I usually send out 5-7 cards a month.

Have a great Sunday!

Greetings from Punta Cana, Dominican Republic! The resort is so nice and the water is so clear and beautiful!

Jennifer - you just do what you can. I watched my parents care for their parents. There were times when it was just awful. You just do the best you can. At least you are there for him.

Caterina - have a wonderful time! I didn't realize you were flying out of Philly! Can't wait to see pics and hear your stories.

Today was gray, and a bit rainy, but we went to a neighbors for a BBQ. It was fun. Between neighbors and church friends, we knew everyone there!

Hope everyone had a great JULY 4th! I know Cat is, swimming in the water in Punta Cana!

I've been busy the last few days making cards. Fall and Christmas. I know no one wants to hear that but I like to get a start on it when I feel up to it. Like Joan says when the mood hits you. I'm off tomorrow to the Historical Gardens in Annapolis Royal. Well known for their collection of roses. All these years and I've never made it there. Seventeen acres of pretties to look at. Weather has been so dry here - I should have cactus in the garden.💕💕💕

Those are great cards, Gail. And I agree, whatever you are in the mood for - just make those cards.

Your day sounds lovely!

It is so hot here today. And the next few days even worse. We are going to my parents for the next two days. I am so thankful they now have central air.

Gail- I love all you cards. I especially love fall. Thanks for the card... It was opened at the border. Everything was in tact and in a plastic bag. Weird!

Joanne- have fun at the parents. How are the girls?

Caterina- I hope you are having fun in the sun!

Hi to everyone else. I miss all the ladies who used ot post. I am on facebook but prefer posting here.

Joan glad you got it. You know those shaker cards are reason for alarm. I just thought it was fun but being the holiday they were on high alert. I'm going to try and make shaker cards in a different way so I'm experimenting. Yes I tried some fall cards and Christmas. I'm all over the board and started a few more this evening. I have a big day tomorrow so I need to get to bed.

Hello ladies! Got a tour of the medical emergency clinic yesterday and was admitted to the hospital due to gastric problems. Feeling a bit better today.

Today is Reynold's 70th birthday!

Caterina- I am sorry that you are ill on vacation. Please take care! Are you feeling well enough to enjoy the area?

Gail- I agree I love roses. But I can't grow them. We visit a rose garden in St Cloud, MN. Your photos are beautiful!

I am not creating today. I just don't fell like it. I am doing laundry instead.
Have a great Thursday!

This is the month of roses, I have so many pictures from yesterday.

In our community there are what they call jam sessions every night of blue grass music. So we are off this evening to take one of those in. They cost $2.00 and they provid a lunch. What a great deal!💕💕💕☕️🍩

Beautiful roses Gail! My rose bush hasn't bloomed yet - I got it from my neighbor last year. I'm looking forward to seeing what color it is!

Super stressful day. Dealing with my dad and I've had it. It's one thing after another. He canceled his dr. appointment because he's too weak to walk to the car (even with a walker) and now isn't answering his phone. Guess I should go over....

It is so sad for you. Very sorry. Sounds like he may need medical help.

The roses could use some food. Check with your local nursery.

Jennifer- So sorry about your dad. I know it is very difficult. Take care! Hug Preston a few extra times.

Gail- Thanks for all the beautiful rose pictures. I love roses. However, I don't have the right green thumb for them.

Hi all ~ visited my parents and had a lovely, though short visit. The girls came up Friday night (Julie drove) and we all left after lunch today. I am just tired - not matter what, I'm tired.

The roses are gorgeous! I know they are too much work for me so I just adore them from afar!

Jennifer - so sorry about all you are dealing with. It is so difficult.

Gail- You are always creating beautiful cards. Thanks for sharing!
We went to church today. There was a going away party after Mass for the priests. DH and DIL didn't want to stay. I would have like to have stayed and socialized a bit. I made them each a thank you card.

It is a dreary day here today. Everyone is napping again.

Dreary day here as well but we really need the rain. Sometimes it's just great to nap the day away. I'll be all rested for cards in the evening!😊

I had to change the chalk board for the month.💕💕💕

I have been creating cards, too! I wish I had a digital camera. Scanning just doesn't do them justice! Oh well, maybe I will send some out to you!

I bought all this washi yesterday and I didn't want to hoard it but actually use it. Why is it many do that? I laughed in one of the games Suzy asked when I cleaned off my table. There is a job I need to do! Very boring but I need to do it. I have three tables in a row. I work on one and dump on the other two. Why is it creativity is always so messy? I've showed my Mother my card room and she says, now don't go in there! What fun is that? My Mother is not a creative type but she likes tidied. Ha, ha,ha! Um hard to believe I'm her daughter.

Reynold and I arrived home late last night. Punta Cana is very lovely and took some pictures before getting so sick. Feeling better, however, not completely through this. Very grateful to be back home.

Cat glad you are feeling better. Nothing worse than being sick away from home. That's when you really want your own pillow! Glad you are home now and getting better.

Happy Monday, ladies!

My nephew is officially an Eagle Scout! His ceremony was yesterday and unfortunately was not well enough to go. So grateful I did this card before we left for vacation.

Cat - I am sorry you got sick on your trip. I hope you feel better every day and feel back to normal soon. And that is a great card!

Ladies, I haven't said much, but my depression has been creeping up again. Everything I have to do is a struggle - including getting out of bed and taking a shower. I'm going to the doctor tomorrow. I don't like to take meds, but I think some kind of change is in order. Please pray, send good thoughts, etc.

Finally heard from my dad before I headed over to his house. He hadn't eaten for a few days and wanted me to fix him some food (he has plenty in his house!) and of course, walk his dog. Home health care started yesterday - they will do housework, walk the dog, fix him meals and take care of personal hygiene. He really needs to be in an assisted living center at this point.

I had a dr.'s appointment yesterday. I've lost 21 pounds since February! I am THRILLED and so was the dr.!

I'm so excited that I got my hands on some Graphic 45 paper today. So I had to come home and start creating. This is a gate fold card and what you see is the inside with two side pockets and a belly ban for a closure. I only got a 6x6 pad so I'm limited in what I could do. There is a little book tucked in behind the cut out figures. I'll be able to make two more and several cards. Funny how a bunch of paper can bring such joy into your life.💕💕💕🌲🌲🌲

Hi there ladies, Magda, Camron and Conrad are coming home today from spending time in Poland with family.

Am still recovering from last week's gastric fiasco... still have a nice tan

Joanne, sorry you are feeling down and sending much loving support your way. Please know you are loved!

Jennifer, glad you heard from your dad and also glad that home healthcare will help out. Woohoo on the weight lost.

Gail, love all the sharing of your lovely cards and love your crafting enthusiasm! You are encouraging!

Joan, you are so faithful in making and sending cards and you are a special lady!

Caterina- Congrats to your nephew. Too bad you didn't get to the ceremony. All three of my son's are Eagle Scouts. I know it is an accomplishment. The card is perfect.

Joanne- Hugs going out east. I hope the dr can help.

Gail- Once again, you have out done yourself. Your card is awesome.

Jennifer- that is a fantastic weigh loss. You lost what I gained. So now I know where it came from! Happy that your dad is getting care.

Caterina- I am so sorry you are still ill. Take care my friend!

Good morning friends, I think the very worse is over with my tummy. Today seems like a major turn to my 'normal'. PTL!

Cat very happy to hear you are on the mend!

Jennifer you have done so well - CONGRATS!

Joanne hope the Dr was able to help you!

Joan glad you are having fun with your cards, I'm trying to use up this new pad of Graphic 45 paper. That's a challenge after the special cards are done. So I've been looking on Pintrest for ideas. Just want the pad to be gone.

Caterina- I am so very happy that you are on the mend. You are a loving caring person. You deserve the best in life. I have been making kids cards. I need to have someone take me to the PO to get a box and them mail them off. It may be awhile. As DH can't drive on DR orders.
Gail- Is it hot in Canada. it is steamy here. The weather guy just said our weather is like Miami in July.
