What a crazy week we are having here. Sunday was a terrible day....we had to put down our 13 year lab Gypsie....lots of tears and memories. Gypsie and Max were always together and when Max died last October, Gypsie wouldn't leave the place where he died. She laid there for two months, day and night. We would find her there in the morning with snow on her coat and she would be shivering. So Sad. Then we rescued Bret and he made a big difference for her. Life was good once again, however, Gypsie's hips just gave out and she couldn't get up. Bret would not leave her and now he is grieving for her. We are on the hunt for a friend for Bret but it is not an easy thing for us. We will miss Gypsie very much.

Update on sister. My sister is into her second week in the hospital and starting dialysis. Seems to be doing well with it so far....hoping to come home on Friday.

Finally, I have my own craft room! I am in and have computer up and running, however, I can't find anything just yet! I must put my fingers on everything a couple of times so I can remember then I will be ready to create. I have been in portion of our laundry room for so many husband said he would never get used to coming through the door and my not being there. I will post pictures so you can see how much I love this space! I still haven't figured out how I had so much stuff stored in such a small space. The guys who helped move my new cabinet couldn't believe all the stuff I put in it from the laundry room.

Well it is only Wednesday and we have a roller coaster of emotions this week...We have sadness and grief.....relief and hope for my sister and ultimate joy at my new space!   This old lady definitely needs to take time to breathe!  So bear with me a couple of days while I settle in and then I will have more pictures for you then!

I'm so sorry about your dog. Mine are both 9, and I'm already dreading the day one of them has to be put down. It's hard for people who don't have pets to understand how much they become part of the family, and that loss is just as devastating as losing a human family member. Your post made me cry!
I'm glad to hear your sister is doing well, and that your new craft room is giving you some joy at such a difficult time. I think you're entitled to a large drink this weekend!

Wow, Glenda. Your week was SERIOUSLY an emotional roller coaster. I'm so sorry for the loss of your precious pup, so glad your sister is doing better, and totally happy for you to have your own crafting place!
