Going crazy

Well here it is the 13th of September. This has been an interesting few days. We have had a pipe burst and it is in a very difficult place to get to and not just because it is in the slab either. It is going to be a whole day project for the plumbers. Thank god for insurance, we have a policy that will cover this so that takes some of the stress out of it. We haven't had hot water for 2 days. Having to heat water to wash with is not a fun thing to do but I can't wash certain parts of my body with cold water. I think you ladies can understand that, lol. It just seems like when it rains its pours. The last few days it has been one thing or another but the worst is the water leak. Tomorrow it will be fixed and tomorrow night I will take a nice soaking hot bath.
I had someone ask where my son got married, well he and his wife actually got married in front of a judge in GA. They are both military and they were going to do it closer to the end of the month and I was going to be there however because of their schedules and such they decided to do it the 31st of August. Yes I was dissappointed that I couldn't be there but they are going to have a reception when my son gets back from Iraq (his second tour). I will be there for that and they have asked me down for Thanksgiving. I am planning on being there for that and am so excited and looking forward to it. Will definately let everyone know how that goes. I am excited that I have a daughter-in-law and I do chat with her online and enjoy our conversations. Can't wait to meet her. My youngest and her get along great so that is good. My middle daughter is still feeling her out. I do understand that and know that it will be fine. I think she is kinda watching out for her big brother which I think is great.
My middle daughter has to have some surgery in December so I will be going there to be with her to help her recover. I am glad she wants her mom there. I don't get to see any of my children any where as much as I would like. It is strange haveing grown up kids. I sure don't feel old enough for this to be happening but I have checked my birth certificate and I definately am old enough. Well it is thundering outside and I have to get dinner out of the oven and go pick up my honey from the airport. I just kinda needed to vent a little and get rid of some of the stress. Thanks for listening, and talk to you again soon.

Been awhile

Well it has been a couple of weeks. I am finally through the worst of the rewritting policies. I hope I never have to do that again. I still don't quite have them done but there isn't much I can do about that.
Well my son got married on the 31st of August. He and his wife want me to come down for Thanksgiving and I am trying to make that happen. I can't wait to meet my daughter-in-law.
My youngest was here for about 10 days in August and she has grown up so much. I still find it hard to believe my "baby" is 18. She asked me to stitch her a bookmark and I am working on that and my other daughter would like one too so I will be working on that too. I have about 4 projects going on right now. Lets see if I can get them all done, LOL. I am thinking I would like to make my son and his wife a wedding sampler. I haven't ever done anything like that so we will see what happens.
Something for their new home. They will be moving into a house in mid September. This year so many changes have gone on. I look back and wonder where the time went. I just don't feel old enough for some of this stuff. Well right now it looks like things are falling in place (for a change, lol).
Well time to stich for a bit and it is a long weekend so I am gonna do as little as possible. Just the stuff that really needs to get done. It is time for some fun!!
I will update soon.
