I haven't blogged in quite a while so will try and update what has been going on here at home.

Last Sunday I had a Bridal shower for my future daughter in law, I was so excited about it and put my heart and soul into making it just right. With Roger being out of work I had to do it on a budget, wich was challenging. Sara's (the bride to be)Mom Annette asked me if it would be okay to bring the cake and I said yes and told her what a blessing that was to me. She brought a beautiful cake and it tasted so good!!

Here is Sara with the cake~

The day of the shower came and instead of being worried about it being 100'+ I was worried about rain and cold. Who would have figured there would be rain on the first weekend in June in CA. The weather turned out okay but it did rain quite a bit during the bridal shower. Luckily we were under the patio cover and were safe from the rain. At one point I was thinking we may have to build an ark it came down so fast and hard :) Sara got many wonderful gifts and we had 14 people come. The day was fun and turned out fine. Sara came by our home on Thursday this week to pick up some pictures from the shower I had for her and her mom. We chatted for a little while talked a little about the wedding in October and then she left. She left CA friday to go back to Las Vegas (where she is living right now) and I thought all was well and good. I wasn't sure if we could go to the wedding in Texas or Vegas since money is tight but if there was a way I would be there!!!! Friday night I checked my facebook page and now Sara has listed herself as married to Mattie, changed her name and everyone is congratulating her on her recent marriage!!! What, when did this happen, my son is in Iraq, I talked with her on Thursday afternoon and here friday evening she is now married and she didn't even mention it to me, this really made me MAD!!!! I feel like she was lying the whole time. Now I know Mattie has a big problem with lying but I thought maybe Sara could break him of that. I guess not since she seems to have no problem lying either. First I was mad then I just got very sad and dissapointed that I had been left out. Mattie has done some not nice things to me in the past but nothing this important and sadly right now I am to the point of I don't care anymore. You think this catches you up with what's been going on around here?? YOU couldn't be more wrong......

Chapter 2 :)
I have been having some personal problems the past few month and had confided in two very good friends. I won't call them my BFF's because I am an adult and that is a teenage term :) One of them is a true sister in Christ and the other well just a good friend I have know for over 15 years. I emailed both of them and one of the responses I got just gave me a wake up call as to who is really my friend and who isn't. Both of these friends emailed back within a day and gave me some advice to think about, I was sick at the time and didn't get right back to them, it was probably like 3-5 days before I got back to them. In the meantime I get a second message from one of them about me not being a good friend and that all I do is come to her with my problems all the time and that I am not there for her. I couldn't believe what I was reading, this is the same person whom I have visited in her home with her many times and even though we lived very close to where she was living she never once came by my home, she moved I think 3 times and she never even let me know, I found out by either calling or going by and finding no one there. And she has the nerve to say I am not there for her. My other friend doesn't think this way, she knows that that is what friends do for each other, they listen and try to say the right thing and to just make you feel better.

Chapter 3, don't worry this is much more fun :)

I went to the library yesterday and picked up books I had requested. I love the fact that I can go online pick out books and request them and then just go to the library and they have them all ready to pick up sitting in a stack.

THese are the books I picked up~

When I was out yesterday I also went by the fabric store to look for a pen for transferring patterns, I usually use a black micron pen but since I am doing redwork I wanted a red one. I couldn't find a red micron pen but I found this and am hoping it works~

I plan on starting on the winter wonderland embroidery project this coming week. Lots of transferring to do..

Please have a very enjoyable week ahead, and I will try and be a little more consistent with my posting.

  1. Oh Joann I know we don't talk much but just know I am praying for you and your family and it is always so wonderful to have such great friends to confide in. I know you were hurt by Sara and Mattie and even your so called friend but just know that God has it all in control and if you ever need to just talk I am here to listen and pray......


Thank you so much for visiting my blog and leaving a comment, I truly thank you for your visit. Blessings,Joann
