I can’t believe it’s been a month since I last posted. Also, I have no pictures to share. Life has been a whirlwind! School started on Monday, so things should get back to normal soon.

I’m planning a baby shower with two of my coworkers for another coworker in September. This should be fun, but definitely a lot of work involved (house cleaning)! I’m looking forward to it! My friend is such a dear person that I just want to make this a special event for her first child. I feel truly blessed that she and I became friends. Of course, she is many years younger, but that doesn’t matter. By the way, she’s having a girl!

My oldest daughter has moved back home. She has a part-time job, and is still looking. But, she needs to hurry up and find a job! She worked for Cracker Barrel for 5 years and she could easily get a job in a restaurant, but she doesn’t want to. I don’t mean to be demanding, but she has bills to pay (a car note) and I can’t pay them for her in addition to my bills. She’s going to have to get another part-time job to help out while she’s waiting for calls.

My mom’s sister was diagnosed with lung cancer, and it doesn’t look good. I really believe the cancer is further along than my aunt is telling us. My husband and I are going to visit Labor Day weekend. My aunt and I used to be extremely close, but things happened and we haven’t talked much lately. In fact, I hadn’t spoken to her since last Christmas until I found out she was sick. She knows that her actions alienated her from the family and now she has to deal with it. But, I’m doing what I need to do to be supportive to her, my mom and also be able to live with myself when the end comes. I don’t want to have any regrets.

Well, enough for now. I plan to work on some projects while on the plane next weekend. I hope I can carry my crochet needles with me. I won’t try to cross stitch, but I do need to work on the baby blanket for my friend.

Have a great week!

I am so sorry to hear about your mom's sister. My mom's sister died of breast cancer many years ago, but we still miss her! I will remember you, your aunt, and your family in my prayers!
