last weekend

i had a REAL good weekend last weekend...

Friday: I helped a friend who really needed my help

Saturday: Slept in until 12:14! Got a call from a friend to be treated at Midtown for lunch AND dessert! I felt like good deeds do get rewarded ! i got an invite for a BBQ & drinks and saw some new and old friends. Picked up some pallets for new projects i am working on FOR FREE!

Sunday: Made a salad to bring to a suprise 50th wedding anniversary for my neighbors, that i really do LOVE! worked on my rug, it's almost done, then i just have to finish Aubri's (sheena's is done).

All weekend i felt like i was just going with the flow, not rushed to be anywhere, not tired and the weekend felt like it didn't fly by. i don't know why people dred sundays because they know they have to work monday? it's a day off people, don't stress over

i have wanted to do this for awhile. it's real easy, hot glue your crayons onto a piece of cardboard, attached cardboard to wall and use hair dryer to melt crayons

my finished masterpiece

Happy 19th Birthday my son

Motherhood is a choice you make everyday to put someone else's happiness and well being ahead of your own, to teach the hard lessons, to do the right thing even when you're not sure what the right thing is...and to forgive yourself over and over again for doing everything wrong...Donna Bell

this sign was so appropriate, you asked SOOOOO many questions!
8th grade graduation, so excited for high school
senior pictures, why did you grow up so fast?
You are such a wonderful soul, keep moving forward, aim high bud, i love you so very much!

reading this made me tear up...
one time at the cemetery when tyler was about 4, we were talking about death. 

Tyler:  how old will you be when I'm 80 momma ?
Me:     honey, when you're 80 momma probably won't be around
Tyler:  well then who will i sleep with ?
Me:     probably your wife or  your girlfriend, honey

i don't know how much i saved on this windy day. I only had to run my dryer for socks & underwear, the other 7 loads made it to my clothesline. I had my clothesline full twice today...

words i don't hear very often

“I understand. It’s my fault. “ this was part of a text from my daughter on June 6 at 12:38

i of course have to keep a record of this...

Memorial Day

My sisters, their husbands, children and I always go to the memorial day parade and then to the cemetery. The parade lasts about 3 minutes, the service is always nice at the cemetery.

Then the rest of the day is spent relaxing, catching up on stuff around the house and usually a BBQ.
Thank you to all who have served honorably past, present and future. I know some paid the ultimate sacrifice, being a military brat i do so get this
