Been on a mini vacation with hubby to Pensacola Florida. Back and in the land of swamped! Why is it that you take a couple of days off from work and nobody seems to know how to do your work? So I am having to play catch up and stay up! Sometimes it just doesn't seem worth the hassle to take vacation time.
No package yet....but that just means less time to look at it waiting to be opened! My SS has received hers so I don't have to worry about that anymore!
I just found out youngest daughter is happily pregnant with her first child. She and her hubby have been trying for a few months. Can't wait to make baby quilts. On the flip side my other daughter went into rehab for a meth problem. She lives in Seattle. I pray she gets better, but just before she went in she told me I was cut out of her life and that's that.

Give your Seattle daughter the space she wants and keep her in your prayers. Drugs have a way of messing with your head and you push the folks away that you love the most because there is too much guilt if you let them into your life. She knows she's messed up which is why she's finally getting help for her addiction. If she wants to blame you for everything and so "cut you out of her life", it is a gift that you are giving her to let her blame you in her head. PLEASE don't agonize over it. She'll come around if you give her tons of space. Prodigal daughter type event.

Congratulations on your youngest daughter's pregnancy. Have fun with the baby quilts! I hope it is a stressfree pregnancy for all of you!

How was Pensacola? I haven't been there in years.

Guess what I'm making for dessert for our annual thanksgiving get together? Now only problem... what kind other than pumpkin????? Hope the neighbors are hungry for cheesecake!! Haha. Took containers of soup to friends other day....
I was looking for it in the hole. Did you put any down there for us? Likely gobbled up before I got down there.

You can always send a card now and say open after package on the 6th.

I hope you all understand.
I think I posted...not sure, I have received and I have sent....just to update
I am so so sorry. If there is anything you need help with that I can do long distance please let me. Know I am thinking of you and wishing I was there to at least be some one you know you can talk to.

got my package in the mail today from my Secret Santa and think there just might be a problem. When you tilt the package there is a lot of rattling and sounds like there may even be some broken glass in it. I did see where it was insured. I don't know what to do. Don't know if I should go ahead and open it just to check or what. If there are things broken in it I do know that if your going to make a claim at the Post Office you will need to do this soon. Please someone advise as to what I should do.
By the way there is even a label on it from the post office stating it may be damaged.

II would say open it or better have someone else open it to check thingsout, that way you can take care of things before to late and still have things unbroken to open with us,
