My shoulders ache from pulling weeds yesterday.
The daffodils have just started blooming, and i already have to pull weeds?! What kind of crap is THAT?!?
But i want a couple of pix of my new daffodils, so i pulled the damn weeds.
I still need to get out there with a camera...
Well, i'm off to run errands! (License plate office, pick up a dress that's been at the alterations place, drop some stuff off at the Goodwill, etc)
Wish me luck!
And enjoy your day! I hope the sun is shining for you today (at least figuratively, if not literally!)!

Wow, it's Monday again.
Boyfriend and i went to my Mom's this past weekend. She lives in Beaufort, SC with her husband of 13 years. She has Alzheimer's, and i'm beginning to think he does too.
I noticed Mom's "brain cramps" (as Mary's mom called them) are getting worse since i last saw her in January. She's always been "ditzy", but now she's forgetting what we just talked about 20 minutes ago!
I woke up at 2:20 last night in a cold sweat about her, and i couldn't get back to sleep!
I was tossing and turning, worrying about what in the world will i do if he passes before she does! I can't imagine she'll be happy anywhere other than in her own house with all her own things.
I don't know what to do!
Boyfriend says "One day at a time", but that doesn't help me at 2:30 in the morning!
I think i'm going to write a letter to Mom's husband, asking him what their plan is so far...
It's REALLY bothering me!!!
I'm going to the gym. Weights and walking should help me a bit. If only my Tuesday Yoga teacher would teach EVERY day...!
Smile! Things are bound to get better!
If they don't, at least i have Yoga!

Tonight is my Guild meeting! I'll see if i can remember to take somebody's camera, and perhaps i'll have pix tomorrow to share... No promises!
I am currently working on/pondering over the Blue WaveRunner, another baby quilt made of a "Fresh by Deb Strain" Moda jellyroll, BOM A Tisket A Tasket, and some small embroidery things. Pictures one of these days...
Have a GREAT Monday everyone!!!

I miss Spring and Fall...
Just like... you?

Mom-in-law was sick. We *knew* she was sick, but we didn't really know just how sick. We took her to the doctor, and she has *Pneumonia*!
As i sit here in my kitchen, i wonder if i'll *ever* go to see *my* Mother again...
And then i wonder if all this one-thing-after-another will simply resolve itself in Va. only to be replaced with a *new* one-thing-after-another with *my* Mother in SC!?
The craziness in Va. is REALLY bothering Boyfriend 'cause he's the kind of person who likes to have a schedule. To know what's happening next and then next after that, and what the date will be for when something will end and the date for when the next thing will begin.
He's a PLANNER!
And this thing about stuff having NO PLAN is driving him CRAZY!
Me? I'm a day-to-day, moment-by-moment kind of person, so that part is alright with me.
It's the sitting-in-the-nursing-home-all-day, doing-NOTHING that makes me want to VOMIT! That, and the way the nursing home is
When's the last time you were in a nursing home?
Have you EVER been in one?
Even if it was 20 years ago, trust me, nothing much has changed in the majority of nursing homes.
They are DEPRESSING.
I don't EVER want to be shushed-off to one.
Can i find some sunshine today?! (Metaphorically speaking, or IRL. Either one would be nice!) =-)
I'm leaving shortly to go to the YMCA for either Yoga or Zumba.
I know, i know. Those are two very different things!
But that's okay!
I'm looking for Sunshine, and i can find it at *either* place!
And then i think i'll work on a new project at my sewing table!
You go find some Sunshine of your own! Your day can only improve!
