HI Everyone

I know its been a while since I've posted anything, I'm sorry about that, I just didn't have anything to say. Now I do!!
     The universe hates my family for some unknown reason {sigh} Let me tell you why I think so...It started in late May. My oldest son, while DH and I were in New Mexico visiting my Mother, rear ended a lady, her car had minor damage, his car was totaled.  Then, two and a half weeks ago as DH was coming home from the store, a double axle pick up truck, which was going the opposite direction, lost a wheel, it came flying across the road, Lee tried valiantly to avoid it, he went up on two wheels and all the way across the devil's strip and up across the sidewalk trying to avoid it, but alas he could not. it shredded the front left tire. At first we thought the tire was the only damage...it was not, the entire suspension system on that side has to be replaced, to the tune of 1500.00$ and they're having trouble getting a steering rod or some part, and we STILL don''t have our car back, which means I have no car to drive at all because the loaner is in Lee's name only.The Tuesday after that happened, my Daughter Becca was in Virginia driving down a large road at 60 mph when a woman turned left Right in front of her, Becca's car is totalled I don't know about the other woman's car. Even more importantly, Becca's left arm is broken in two places AND she may have torn ligaments in her wrist which will require surgery to repair them, We're waiting for some tests and results. Our insurance company is in shock!!
I'll bet your thinking I'm done right? Nope! We found out last week DH's company is laying off up to 10,000 people by the end of the year, naturally we're worried! I Swear I don't remember cutting off any gypsies but if I did I'm sorry I Swear!!!Please take the curse off my family!!
O.K. Now I'm done
Please send good thoughts and prayers, we need 'em before anything REALLY bad happens!! Thanks for "listening" and have a wonderful day

Today one of  the only real friends I've made since moving to North Carolina, is moving away. It's not of her choosing, she has to go where the work is, but boy am I gonna miss her. Now don't get me wrong its not like we're joined at the hip best buds but we have been getting closer lately and now she's gone. I know the turmoil she's feeling as she leaves, I felt it when we moved across the country. She's only going a few hours away but it must FEEL like a world  away, especially since the place she is going is SO MUCH more small town conservative than here.....and conservative is about the LAST word Id use to describe her. NO I would use words like smart, funny, beautiful, generous, loving, happy, graceful, with a wicked sense of humor and an ascerbic wit. She will be missed. And I hope she has a spare room as she WILL be visited!!!!!

Superbowl Sunday and I couldn't care less!!

So Here is an owl pin that I made from felt and buttons, stuffed with polyester fluff and the feathers are just embroidery floss! The quarter is so you can see the size. I just drew the owl shape onto cardstock, cut it out then used it as a pattern for the felt pieces. a little triangle for the beak and 4 buttons and ta da my very first project  posted!!!!

I really am trying to get some of my projects posted here, but my DH is sooo busy and I haven't a clue so please hang in there and I will get them up I SWEAR soon!
On other things my heart really foes out to those in AZ who are suffering because of politics, I know it's a necessary evil but I really do wish there was a way to completely uninvent politics!! I know I know chaos would reign and there{{Sighs}} Oh well, there is really nothing I can do from here to help except keep them all in my heart and thoughts. I invite you to do the same. My DH and I went to Fayetteville to see my friend Teresa and had such a wonderful relaxing time!!! I Can't wait to go again. Part of the appeal is Teresa herself and part is the wonderful friends she has around her. Joyce and Mouna, Angela, Jan and Donna. Not to forget her terrier Gator, Who has the world's most epic eyebrows!! They are a wild and wonderful bunch of women that I really love being around. Did I mention Teresa lives on a small lake? So the view is also amazing. All we did was talk laugh and eat then talk and laugh some more but the people there really made us feel wanted and included and welcome, something rare in today's society I believe. For example we moved to NC 13 years ago, we don't know most of our neighbors, I've made very few friends and though part of that is because I was bed ridden for five of those years the rest is because no one seems interested. I try all the time and there are now a couple people I'd call my friend (besides Teresa and gang) but everyone out here already has friends they grew up with and friends they work with, and apparently they haven't the time nor inclination for any more.Please understand I don;t mean to sound like I'm whining here, simply stating a fact that makes me very sad that this is what society has come to in our suburbs. I really miss my CA. friends and I will never replace them but I would dearly love to add to them. OK enough about that.  I'll just close by saying "Friends wanted, apply here"
