MP bought the birthday cake...I was so relieved.
I am exhausted..
Thank you so much MP
Did you see the fun surprise...a rainbow inside!
It was a great success!!!
Daddy did not come, he came the next day promising rehab...sigh.
Lynsey wrote this note to him. They love him and do not understand.
This poor picture shows the pillowcase and dolly pillow we made to match.
Easing my grief with potholders.
My man always said....Just go sew!!!
Of course this only reminds me of Mr. O'Quilts who would be driving me to the dentist and holding my hand and giving me tooth fairy money..
Instead, I am making potholders, taking 4 Ibuprofens every 7 hours
...... and drinking red wine.
Missing him so.
If you have never been in this widow spot...I hope you never are.
The hole in my heart hurts so so so much.
The children continue to do well....
However, they tend to blame me for everything..
They are safe with me.
When their daddy does not come, they blame me.
When their mommy makes a mistake...she is perfect, I am not.
When they go away for the weekend, but want to stay home on the computer all weekend
..It is Grandma's fault..
When homework has to be done...guess who is the witch?
It is all normal....
Sigh...that is my life.
Thank God for my blogging friends and my quilting friends and my peeps.
Thank God for my daughter who brings me joy.
Now, she says they may make their Portland yard a bird sanctuary.
I love her so.
PS I forgot to tell you about a challenge...a group I know...all good friends of 10 to 18 years are doing a purple quilt challenge....Well...hmmm I think the quilt police are hovering...
Did you know how many shades of purple there are????
Everyone has a different opinion..
Just think of it as white.
.Have you ever gone to the paint store to check out different shades of white?
.There are hundreds...and so it goes...
Fun.It will be Fun.
.I cannot wait to see the final reveal....
