A new beginning

I don't even know where to begin. This past week has been crazy, our house is sold and my sisters marriage has ended. Lots of tears, lots of hugs, and a really big to do list.

Check on sister, find someplace to live, check on sister, finish that quilt, check on sister, get ready for class I'm teaching on Tuesday, check on sister, get ready for dog show that I'm leaving for on Thursday, check on sister, find somewhere to live, hug husband make sure he knows how much I love him.

It's a new beginning, don't look back move forward. dream big and make it happen.

I am so great full for my family and friends. Their support and kindness are truly overwhelming and a gift from God.

new web page design

Spent the afternoon yesterday with my friend and web designer working on updating my site.  Big new look!  Terri is very creative and cleaver. I hope that everyone likes it.

Did the mom thing yesterday too, treated my boys to lunch.  They are both working hard getting in the corn so I went to subway and tops and stocked them up on munchies, beverage and subs for the afternoon.  Love my boys! What a beautiful day they had for chopping corn. Sun, breeze and cool air, the leaves are gonna turn fast.

Mom to the rescue

So I get this text from my eldest yesterday, Mom, will you be home and can you hem a pair of pants? bring them over no problem.  and then a little text that one of the groomsman forgot to get his pants hemmed.

So here I am thinking my son is going to bring the pants over and no problem I'm just gonna give a rented tux and quickie hem, wrong!!  It's an invasion!  Before I know it my son Doug, the groom Steve (Doug's best friend from high school) the grooms mother Barbara (whom I love and haven't seen in forever) and the groomsman Billy with the pant issue all arrive!  The dogs are going nutty and all need to be put into crates, and thank God that my sister had asked me to go with her earlier in the morning to the vets or else I still would have been in my pj's!

Instead of renting tux's, all the groomsman's purchased suits! And most likely considering the age of these young men (all in their now late 20's) it didn't even cross Billy's mind to get the pants hemmed. Most likely he didn't even realize that they would need hemming seeing how all pants you buy at the mall are come that way. 

So the pants got hemmed and I was able to solve one of those little panic stricken wedding crisis's, but it was so nice to see those boys together!  I miss them barging into the  house larger than life, raiding the fridge and eating me out of house and home, hanging on the sofa watching movies then out the door again on their merry way to only who the hell knows where.

They're all grown up now, men out in the world, finding their way.  But, just for a moment they were those young high school boys again, that gave his mom a kiss on the cheek and thanked her for being there when he needed her.

for all you dog lovers out there... we were woke up at 3am to the sound of the wall beat, for those that are unaware it is a 110lb Leonberger tail pounding on the wall next to our bed because he needs to go out! Then only to find out that our Bernese Telly somehow and only she could pull this off is stuck under our bed!!  I went to get up and there were feet sticking out a few inches. So my husband is attempting to lift our sleigh bed mattresses and all high enough for her to wiggle out.  At least life isn't boring!
