Today, the weather is just the polar opposite than what we had 1 year ago. It's going to be a beautiful day, about 80 degrees.
hope you can enjoy today, even with those sad and painful memories

no, not yet. I've thought about it but still keeping pretty busy here. We have to have the house ready to show within 5 days & that's up today. No matter that the house is under contract still needs to be ready. I'm okay with that because I want to live in a nice place not a dump. Seriously we have worked every minute we are not sleeping or running errands but that is slowing down.

I just couldn't believe when I saw that on the news; how can it be a year already! I am thankful you weren't in that WalMart!

My sewing room is almost 'staged'...looks pretty good too. The colors in this house are 'interesting'. The living/dining room are ok...a nice sage (hard wood floors)but the rest of the downstairs is a combination of pea green, burgundy,avocodo (sp) and the carpet in the office & family room is forest green and the bathroom is mauve....the rest of the floor downstairs are white tile. Upstairs has my sewing room a caramel, bathroom is sunny yellow, bedroom terra cotta, another bedroom orchid, another bedroom BRIGHT blue, another bathroom celery. Master bedroom is mint green in the sitting room & butter yellow in the bed part; master bath is mint green with dark green accent tiles.

Lois - I have my catty!!!

thank you for the new color samples!

I went off and left my breakfast on the kitchen counter. I sure am hungry!

Nice pictures - wish I was in them!

Back is better - still sitting on an ice pack today, but so far no meds. I should be fine until I go up and down the stairs a few times.


Oh my. Doesn't he realize you're in pain and need your rest!? I hope he is feeling better today and that you are able to get some rest tonight. I'm glad your back is feeling better and that you've not had to use meds today.

And yes ... that was a lot of shirts. Won't do that again. It was around 159 color changes when you count all the changes for all the shirts.

I guess she can still cheer and do choir here so she will still be busy...but so hard to choose, she loves both volley ball and soft ball... and she knows so many of the HS girls, it would have been fun for her


Only one sport?! That's bizarre. I hate that for her. It's so hard to choose things like that.

Today, the weather is just the polar opposite than what we had 1 year ago. It's going to be a beautiful day, about 80 degrees.


Yes, what a bittersweet day. What a wonderful day, though, to look around and be thankful for the blessings in your life.

Seriously we have worked every minute we are not sleeping or running errands but that is slowing down.


Do you like the house you're in right now?

How precious - both Gracie and the card. Great job, Gracie!!!!

I'm sure her teacher was thrilled with the card.

It was a long day for us, but a pretty good one. The dress rehearsal went well, albeit a little chaotic. It will be good to be home all day on Friday. Gotta get ready for VBS now.

After speaking with Ali about this I think I understand better...

her volley ball will nit be affected, since that sport is not involved in the coop... it would mean choosing between school softball and track... She said she was pretty sure she would choose softball over track...

I do not think her cheer leading is affected, but I could be wrong...


plus her extra traveling softball league will not be affected either...that has nothing to do with her school

Cody's team is playing later this year...about 8:00 pm
I drove up about 7:30, since Cody needed to be there early, plus they were hoping to stop up town to eat first... I stayed til almost nine, unfortunately Cody had not played... It was cooling off, and I was ready to come on home ...

hi all...thought I would pop on. It's been a long day....we did a rocket launch for a middle school. We didn't fly too many rockets...their rocket teams flew a few. It was really hot...and some of the kids that watched weren't very interested. Oh well....at least it is done.

Good morning Quackers. Got my blog updated last night with the book cards I made for my girls for Mother's Day. Hopefully I'll get some time to craft tonight.

That seems to be the way kids are for Middle School. I bet my DGS would love to fly rockets. Of course, he's the type that would want to see how it works and would be taking it apart. Don't worry, he'd figure out how to put it back together again.

Hey girls
I should be working but wanted to check in. How is everyone? Need to read back and find out how the meet-up and Maggie's class went.
