About Me

My photo
I'm a wife, mom, grandmother and great grandmother. I try to be creative - sometimes it works, most times it doesn't. I'm my own worst critic! I'm self taught in a lot of my crafts, but have taken quilting classes and most recently a beginner's rug hooking class. I enjoy both crafts tremendously. I'd like to learn to be a better gardener.

Whew! What a week this has been!

The week started out fun - met with Stacy and Lauren Monday night and we all busily hooked on our rugs and enjoyed conversation about rug hooking, craft shows, hook-ins etc.  Then on Tuesday all he*l broke loose!  I'm exhausted after the week I've had.  A lot of tension here at work. 

Then yesterday my daughter called me here at work bright and early crying and saying I have bad news and more bad news.  Her husband was sent home from work Tuesday for insubordination.  His supervisor is accusing him of yelling and cussing at him when he gave him some work orders.  Son-in-law's version is that he told the supervisor those were day shift work orders.  So his employer was to call him yesterday to tell him if he had a job or not.  When he didn't hear from him by mid-afternoon he called.  They told him they didn't know if he still had a job because his story is different from the supervisor's so they'd need to talk with the supervisor again and they'd let him know.   Did I mention they have six children!?!?  Then the other bad news is that their 16 year old daughter is pregnant.  Sigh...  The guy is a loser, has been in treatment for drugs hits on her girlfriends, has sent them nude pictures of himself, etc.  And on top of all of that my daughter's health insurance will not cover their daughter's pregnancy because the company that he works for opted to not have that as coverage.   It's just a nightmare.

So I've been rug hooking in a daze!  But I did look at my cardinal mat this morning and it doesn't look like I made any mistakes!  LOL! 

At Monday night's get together and sitting and watching how great Stacy and Lauren hook I realized that I need to practice getting my loops lower and more even.  But not to beat up on myself, this is only the second thing I've hooked!

Oh well, tomorrow is another day.  Thank you all for letting me vent!


  1. Char, I'm so sorry about the bad situation that your daughter's family is in at the moment. It will all come to pass but it looks like a rough journey ahead. I'll keep all of you in my prayers. JB

  2. That is alot of bad news. I hope that your son in law gets to keep his job. And lets pray your grand-daughter realizes this guy is a loser and can get away from him.
    Stay strong,
