    my sil is just 40 years old, an only child whose mother passed away 2 yrs ago. i just want to go hold her in my arms and tell her it will be okay and that she will make it through to the end to victory. while their 10 yo son knows his mom is sick (he's acting out some now) the 5 yo twins (turned 5 on may 9th) have no idea how sick their mom is. my sil has a battle ahead of her with chemo and surgeries staring her down but in my heart i believe the higher the mountain to climb the sweeter the victory to proclaim and the greater the testimony to give of our lord's tender mercy. i just pray that i can plant this into my sil.

    I just gave myself a HUGE scare. I was in such a rush to get customer packages out the door -- and one RAK of scraps -- that I thought I accidentally sent scraps to my veil customer! EEEEKKKK! Sent hubby back to the post office to get them to pull the packages back out to check. Big WHEW!!!

    I have 5 padded envelopes almost ready to be mailed, just need
    to get some more money LOL.

    I just spent over $50 this week for postage to mail various boxes
    out (sp and otherwise EXCEPT for my dq that will be next week).

    I am not a fan of setting up new cell phones, and this new smartphone
    is proving to be a bigger PITA than I like. Hubs won't "help" me to much
    because he wants me to "learn" it on my own. But by doing that I avoid
    using some of the features because I can't figure them out.

    Oh well so be life.

    Havplenty, I am so sorry to hear the news about your SIL, my heart goes
    out to everyone in your family.
    My heart goes out to everyone who is have health issues and family health
    issues. I know how hard it is to deal with.

    thank you for the info.

It's like taking out the trash when it's full. Same thing here like I said, the original poster had to remove their pic. Hope that helps!

    Well I had my in person interview yesterday. I feel that the interview
    went well, however I think I bombed out on the assessment testing
    (alpha-numeric and 10-key), but we shall see.

    Louise, I hope you get that job if that's what you want. Why not do a follow up thank you note saying that you don't think you did your best? If you think you could do better, tell him/her that it was nerves?

    K- I already did that, soon as I left the interview I finished
    writing up a thank you note to Johnny & Trish and told them
    that I felt that my being nervous had a big impact on my "speed"
    for the assessment.
    Dropped the cards in the mail box on my way home.

    But out of OVER 100 people to apply for the job, ALL had been
    rejected for for even getting to the in person interview step, so
    I feel that was a step ahead for me.

    We shall see.

    I am back from my Bahamas trip that my mom offered to me, we had a lovely time after we had fought the cruise line about the cracker box they gave us to sleep in, and ready to do some more quilting labels for those who PM me. I have sent out 15 quilting labels this far and would love to make those who need them. Right now that's all I have to offer until I get my SSD started and that's in the hands of the lawyers right now, so money is tight. I do have some small scraps that I don't think I will every use if anyone wants them. I do have a GoBaby to cut them into 2 1/2 " Squares if you are interested in them as well pm me and let me see what I can come up with...
