My mother in law passed away May 17, 2013. She would have been 94 in June. She certainly led a good and fascinating life, traveled in many countries and loved her 4 great grandchildren, her 2 grandsons and 2 wonderful great daughters in law. When you think about the life that these older citizens of our country have seen, the changes that have been made in the world since 1919, the year of her birth, it is amazing.
She was my MIL for 40 years, longer than my own mother who died at age 60, 34 years ago. We had our ups and downs like most would have but I always loved her and was very glad that she was my MIL. It will be a hard and busy week as we prepare for family to come and make arrangements. I will be busy. Thank you all for your prayers and concerns during the past few months and the time ahead.

My mother in law, Marjorie, passed this evening at about 7:30 pm. We will miss her but she is now at peace. Thank you for all of your prayers and concerns and support during this trying time.

So I'm in this class at the YMCA, named above. Last night we had a briefing by a dietician. OH, I'd heard it all before but hey, if it works. She pretty much described the Sonoma or Mediterranean diet. Eat more protein, fruits and veggies. So today is day one all over again.
Oh, and she also says, track your food. DUH! I hate doing that but there are only 6 more weeks of this and so I can do this. And exercise and more exercise. Yes, I can.

When the going gets tough, the tough get going. Well I'm fixing to be tough because I have some stressors that are hard to deal with. My MIL is near death and my son lost his job again. It is just too much for me to bear so I am setting some goals I can deal with.
First, I need to resurrect my business. I've been trying to retire and quilt but that doesn't pay the bills and with my son unemployed again, we will have to help out. So I need another good year under my belt and I need some good clients. I know what to do and I am spending time revamping my adverts and updating my online presence.
Secondly, I'm not giving up quilting, just putting it on the back burner somewhat. You know, pushing that fabric through the machine is sew relaxing when you are an accomplished sewer. However, I am going to spend some time getting more organized in my sewing room, taking stock of the projects I have in the works, and finishing things up instead of starting new things. I had the idea to get those large storage bags from the grocery and put a UFO in each bag, date it and list what needs to be done with it. That will take me sometime but I WILL do it. ANd it will be fun to see what I need to do. We stopped at the dollar store yesterday but they didn't have the extra large Ziploc bags and I came home with the gallon size which I knew wasn't big enough. For smaller projects yes, but not the big ones. So I"ll have to go to the real grocery to get those.
But first I need to resurrect my business and that is top priority. I can do this! I want to thank all of my spark friends for being there when I need them. And I sew need for someone to listen to my woes right now. Crying is good but I also need to smile. But I really feel like this
Have a good day and think of me!
