I Am Back!!

Hi Everyone!! I am back and I am going to try to be a lot more consistent with my blogging. It just seems like the time gets away from me sometimes. I have been having a few problems with my disabilities and another personal matter, but things are better now and really looking up. I am working hard towards getting a housekeeper sometime in the next couple of months and that is something that will help me tremendously!! I do well with the day to day pick up, clean up, dishes, laundry and that type of thing, and if I can sit to do it great!! But, if it involves me standing for more than a very few minutes I just can't do it. Well, I can, but it takes me hours because I have to go sit so much. What I used to do in a couple of hours on a Saturday morning now takes me all week!!

My daughter and I discussed it and I have come to realize I am struggling so hard to keep up my house I don't have time to do the things I actually enjoy. I have a craft room I have been trying to get together for a year and a half now, and while it is getting closer to being done it is going really really slow. I still have a ton of stuff to sort through and organize yet and I just feel too guilty going in there to work or create when there is so much else in the house that needs to be done.

I have been able to make a few things in the last few months that I will be posting over the next few days. I am getting the camera out tomorrow and taking some pictures during the daylight. I usually take pictures of everything I make but somehow I missed a couple of things. I want to post them in the order I made them and of course the very first thing on my list doesn't have

One thing I am very proud of, and doesn't involve crafts at all, is that my oldest grandson Devin (19) recieved his nomination into the United States Air Force Academy. He has been attending the prep school up there this last year as a cadet candidate and now come June 24th he will be a Freshman Cadet. His mother, my daughter, has done a wonderful job raising this boy and I couldn't be more proud if he were my own. I love you Dev!! Here is a picture, and yes, I am bragging just a little

OK, I am going to try to get a few more things done before I chill for the night. Look for more posts of some projects in the next few days. I am excited about showing them to you!! Hugs, Pam
