This is just stuff I need to say, none of it enough to write a whole lot about, just some bits and pieces.
Sarah received her backpack and loved it! She wrote me by email to say how much she loved the Toy Story Mickey Mouse figurines I put inside, and the slapwear watches, and the DVD about stars and constellations. But, she most loved the Peeps stuffies that I regifted, the ones my sister sent me.
I went down to Kanab a couple of weeks ago and picked up my new partial plate that I had made. It cost me $1003, and it doesn’t fit. I have been back twice for them to adjust it, and I still can’t put it in my mouth. I am going back tomorrow, and if they can’t get it right this time, I am going to ask either for my money back or that they make a new one. I compared it to the old one (the one that broke) and it is not even the same shape.
My 85 year old mother was in the hospital for a few days. She woke up that morning and was dizzy and couldn’t get up, so my sister called 911. When the paramedics arrived, her blood pressure was 190 over something, and she was still dizzy. They kept her for a few days, ran some tests, and as far as my sister can tell, they didn’t find out what the problem was. She’s back home now, and feeling better. Thanks to everyone for their thoughts and prayers for her.
I haven’t had a chance to do any more sewing since I finished up Sarah’s backpack. I have so many things I want to make, but just can’t find the time to it this summer. We are short a couple of people at work, so we are working overtime, and long days. And when I have had time off I have had to run down to Kanab every week to get those stinkin’ teeth adjusted. Emily, I want you to know your quilt is FIRST on the list for this winter.
I made our reservations for staying at a campground in west Georgia for when we leave here in October. It’s a Jellystone park that is fairly new, and one of only two that we know if in the area, except for what used to be Tanner State Park. They charge $300 a month plus electric, which is a good price as far as a monthly rate at a campground in Georgia. After we leave there, we’ll be camp hosting at Unicoi State Park in Helen for about four months.
The cortisone shot I had in my foot for the plantar fasciitis worked great. It hurt a LOT going in, but it definitely caused the pain in my foot to go away. So, if you suffer with that affliction, don’t hesitate to get the shot. It helps.
Here is a new photo of Owen:
And last of all, I have to share this cutie photo of Amelia. I still haven’t met her yet, but I am hoping to get to know her little self this winter.
So, that’s all I got right now.
