So last Thursday night my wonderful creative husband is cutting "rounds" for gnome steps on his table saw and he catches his right thumb and barked the knuckle on his right pointer finger in the blade.
We head to the ER as with all the blood we couldn't tell how deep the cut is.... and blessed as he is by a loving Father in Heaven, no stitches! But the cut is bad and sore and icky and they put him on Keflex antibiotic for 5 days and gave him a tetanus shot. And he is still really sore commenting frequently how he never knew how much his thumb is used!
We feel truly blessed he didnt lose any fingers or a hand.
And so my life continues............................ I hope your end of June goes out without any bang or accident!
And the good news is......... Katie was offered a job by the manager of PFI western store Saturday without even asking for one! She will be moving into her home on the 3rd but will only be 35 minutes away so we will get to see her more often than having her in Oregon! lol
I know that you come here for creative inspiration and for the last few months it has been seriously lacking. I cannot begin to tell you how draining it is with elderly parents and their health issues.
Today we have to go and pack my moms things at the nursing home, she will no longer be allowed to live there. She now has to be in a lock down facility. And we have to bring all her things home for now until she is in a new permanent place.
Have I mentioned how badly I HATE Dementia and what it has done, and is doing to my mom? And did you know that medically a "diagnosis" of Alzheimer's cannot be given until a person is DEAD and they do an autopsy?
What a Crock! And from the website definitions of the stages of Alzheimer's my mom is stage 6 out of 7! But they will only diagnose her with 'dementia'. We got that diagnosis 16 years ago! I am so frustrated!
My stepdad was in the Emergency room again yesterday but is now back at the nursing home. He is a mess physically while my mom is a mess mentally. I feel like all my creativity has been drained from my body and I find myself more and more in my yard and garden puttering. Gardening is good for my soul.
So please, please bear with me as I struggle through all of this. I just received an order of 8 brand new stamps and some designer paper from the new catalog and I will be playing this week and sharing here. I have another order going in this week for the Project Life items. I am thinking they look pretty fast and fun to create with!
Due to the holiday this week we will not have card class, all my stamping friends are gone! lol
We have a church Pancake Breakfast here on July 5th, 8-10am
It's free, so come over and visit with us! bring your lawn chairs!
I hope your weekend is wonderful. I am off to get moms stuff/see my stepdad and wish him happy birthday- hit Sam's Club for our monthly supplies as well as the pancake breakfast supplies and come home to crash! lol
I did get 21 quarts of green beans pressure canned this week and I am now teaching how to make jam and jelly in July for our Relief Society meeting. I have been making those since 1980 and I love it. Jam is good but not as good as homemade!
I am so very glad to be home although I came home unable to speak due to allergies/dry conditions. WHO would think that I would miss the humidity so much! lol
I hope to get rested and get back to work tomorrow, but I wanted to say HI and welcome 2 new Recruits to my team this week!
Hope you are having a wonderful week tty tomorrow~!
oh, Katie is home today to stay until she finishes her Masters degree in Ag Education! She will be here a few weeks and then will be moving in as a ranch manager on a cattle ranch and have her own house!
So very glad to be back. I need to get my photos off my phone and whip up a couple scrapbook pages to share using MDS!
