Just a heads up that I'm going dark for several weeks. I may still update posts/challenges but there will be no new content, not even Thursdays.

My Mom died and I'm taking each day as it comes, plus helping my Dad go through her stuff.

Jan 16 update: Mother-in-law, who I call Mom, is in the hospital for bypass surgery

Feb 19 update: MIL is home now :-D and slowly getting better. I'm still helping my Dad with Mom's stuff but since my brother is out of town, I'm spending 4 nights at his house every week for a month. It's MUCH closer to Dad's and they do meals together and hang out.

Mar 8 update: I'm having a blast with my Dad. MIL has gone back to the hospital

Happy Monday

Weekly report of last week's activities, reading and new books in the house....

Last week:

Helped finish 100 beaded bracelets. Stringing, nothing complicated but way too time consuming. Failed my RaT.

No gym with daughter, this time it was her back.

No volleyball because of the holidays.

Getting stuff ready for donating.

Guest room progress. . . stalled. I still need to work in the guest room, told M it would be usable by Christmas but I'm having some doubts. Next step is washing and painting walls so I can get bookcases and put the bed up. The new sewing machine is waiting for it's new home. 

Party at church for some of us old folks. M told Son we'd be home by 8:30...no, but we stayed to help clean up so and were home by 9 p.m. The gift exchange was fun but took almost an hour with 39 people and 3 "steals".

Whew!


I'm looking forward to visiting again with everyone and hope you have a great week planned
