It's been an interesting year so far. I've lost both my Moms. My mother died in January after a long decline. Soon after, my Mother-in-Law went in for bypass surgery. While her heart healed, other issues zapped her strength and she died April 22.

I may have challenge update posts but I don't know when I'll be posting regularly or when I'll get to visit everyone who is working on the challenges I'm hosting.

off topic: real life funny

My daughter is getting married in July. There are five bridesmaids and we're making the dresses (with help!). I had mentally planned on spending all of June to find the perfect mother-of-the-bride dress. I looked at the Bridal place but I feel that I'm younger, and more casual, then what they had. I needed something dressy enough for the wedding while still being able to wear it to church. See why I planned on a whole month?

We hadn't bought the fabric yet so my daughter & I had gone to the store to try, one more time, to find good bridesmaid dresses (didn't) and thought to look for me while there. I found one! Unbelievable. One less thing to worry about.

Now it's three weeks later and I'm watching TV. There is a Sprint (cellphone) commercial on "If movie crews were in charge of weddings". Very cute commercial but imagine my surprise when I see the bride's mother. She's wearing my dress!

just thought it was funny

...and yes, it makes a great mother-of-the-bride dress even if I think I'm younger then the women in the I can spend June making her veil.
