Nothing much going on as far as sad. I did make Mic a pair of lounging pants out of Nascar fabric this past week before my world fell apart. Due to some "life crisis" I am taking a leave of absence. Hopefully after school's back in session everything will get back on track. I don't enjoy the situation I'm in, but am positive with time it will get better.

back soon, I hope.

Still quilting.......

Even with all the doctor appointments, school planning, movingrooms around and sweet corn, I still found time to quilt! About time! We decided we couldn't make a quilt for "T" and not his sister, so here's what we came up with:

Been a busy week. Cleaning and moving rooms around here at home....was going to finish up today but a phone call changed my plans.

My Mom called at 8 this morning and informed me that Dad had taken a turn for the worse, he's been sick since Tuesday. In fact she was in the process of calling 911......I of course dropped everything and dove the five miles to their house. Got there before the "squad" and found a very pale, clammy, man sitting in his lift chair. Took his b/p and checked his sugar level immediately and they were ok........did find out he was having dizziness again and felt like passing out-----not exactly what I wanted to hear! He's already fallen 14 times since Jan. 1st!

A ride to ER in the squad for him and Mom and I followed in the car. Tests were run, again, and about all they can find is an inner ear infection and soe dehydration. Since he already has a lot of health roblems, it was decided he would stay in the hospital for a few days for observation. I fneally left there around 5:30 . Nine hours at the hospital was NOT how I had planned on spending my day alone! I WAS going toget my sewing room cleaned up and everything in place so I could sew and quilt again next week----oh well, my dad will be 76 on Wednesday, so time spent with him is pretty precious right now!

So now I am going to try to get some sleep and will check in later this week....
