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!....I think...

Well, it appears that I have not gotten laid off and I do believe there is no one who can bump me out of my position since I'm a supervisor and no other supervisors were let go or will be bumped.  Now, I just need to find out how all of this changes my job responsibilities!  Thanks for everyone's positive thoughts! 

I had a bit of a health scare recently - went for my routine mammogram and was called back for more views.  So I went this past Monday - not particularly worried - no family history, didn't feel any lumps or unusual tenderness, etc.  After they did the views they showed them to the radiologist who decided I needed an ultrasound.  Gulp!  So I had the ultrasound and it basically shows that I have fluid filled cysts in my right breast.  They told me it would be up to my family doctor to decide if I should have a repeat in six months or if it was okay to wait a year.  However, my family doctor just retired so a new doctor will be reviewing my results and go from there.  What a relief that it wasn't anything more than fluid filled cysts!

Getting ready to head to Florida for my granddaughter's high school graduation!  Never been to Florida and am really looking forward to going!  I'm so proud of my granddaughter - she is getting recognized by the Superintendent for her school work.  I'll be able to explain more when I get back.

Haven't been doing much hooking or stitching or quilting lately - my thumb is very sore (has been for about 3 weeks).  When I get back if it hasn't improved then it's a trip to the doctor for me.  It started hurting when I was trying to whipstitch my cardinal mat.  I was just pulling and tugging and tugging and I think I irritated my joints.   

When I come back I'll have pictures of a shrub that I bought, the calla lillies my son and his family gave me for Mother's Day and hopefully some nice pictures of Florida!  :)

Thanks for dropping in!

Take care!

LOL! It's been one of those days already!

Welcome Gayle!  Thanks for following me.  While I thought I was clicking the link to follow your blog I actually am following my own blog!  LOL!  Oh, thank goodness it's Friday!

The last time I posted I was concerned about rumors of lay-offs.... well... they're no longer rumors! :(  Approximately 14 people will be laid off.  Not sure yet if I'm one of them.  No idea when it's going to happen.  My guess is within the next two weeks.  As you can imagine, staff here are very stressed out.  There have been a lot of staff in my office crying since the initial announcement went out a week ago.
Times are tough, economy is bad - it is what it is.  I'll just go with the flow and try not to get too stressed out.

Happy Mother's Day!
