Patty, I get inspiration from looking at other people's accomplishments. As you've talked about your projects you've given me the desire to do something. I am sure that other people are just as interested as am I.
I am able to contact a couple of my grandchildren on facebook, but I don't have direct addresses. I am really wanting to see my great grandchildren. There eight of them back there. I have one great-granddaughter here, but I don't get to see her very often. Her mother has to work full time and her grandfather, my son is going blind and can't drive anymore.
Nina, In Oregon children at the age of fourteen can decide to live with the other parent. Perhaps that is why their mother limits contact.
I too am a member of TOPS and I love it. We have an especially good group. But, when I've attended the Fall Rally I have noted that the people there are warm and very friendly. It is worth a try at the very least.
I hope you are feeling better soon. It is no fun being ill.
I'll see all of you sometime tomorrow. I am taking my friend for a doctor's appointment and then I have promised that we will go somewhere to have fun.
Nina, I will be praying about the custody battle. I will also be praying that your daughter-in-law gets out of the cult. I know there are a lot of cults around, we just don't know about them.
Judy, I also will be praying that some time soon all your grandchildren will get in contact with you.
Ann, I am glad that the chemo went well. I will continue praying for you. I will pray that you have a better night than you did last night.
Jan, do you like TOPS? I have been thinking of checking it out here in Arizona.
Patty, I love looking at your blog! You are one talented lady. I do not think it is bragging to have the blog.
I am still not feeling well. I cannot stop coughing. It is a virus that is going around. However, it is affecting my asthma so I will be taking the breathing machine tonight.

Good Evening all
My chemo day went well yesterday even though I was late. When the gal called me to come to the Dr. office instead of the hospital as they had gotten the o k to do the chemo there, I wrote down 2:30 and should have been there at 12:30 I always repeat the time to the caller but just didn't get it. Another patient was just getting started too so we didn't keep the nurse late.. This chemo must be potent as it is milky color and I only get a small bag about the same size as the benadryl, nausea and antibiotic size. Was out of there in 2 1/2 hours and right into the evening traffic..
Everything was fine until I went to bed about 11 p.m. I was reading and just couldn't stay awake any longer. 12 p,m up for the bathroom. Back to sleep -- up at 2 p.m just about wetting the bed. and from then until 6 I was up about every 45 min and three pair of p j bottoms. Man I hate that. I've been fine all day. No p left in me. Today there will be no liquid after 7 p.m.
I know more infor than you needed.
Nina, are the three older children at the age where they can decide which parent they want to live with. I know my GS is 14 and has mentioned a few times he would like to live with his dad full time. His mother and dad live about two miles apart but she comes home from work late on the days he is there and he says she is always yelling at him. She won't help him with his homework and never has. Thinks he should do it by himself. (she being a college graduate) She won't even check to see if it is done. I hope your son gets the job, that will help the court a lot with the decision they make. Will the kids get to talk to the judge or some one appointed by the court? Where will the hearing be, AZ, WA, or OR
I've been reading most of the day. Of course I had to wash linens.

Patty, If you enjoy your blog consider keeping it. I am pretty UNcrafty and I enjoy seeing what others make. I know other friends who are crafty seeing what others are doing, too.

such huge problems for your families.
You know we pray here for you all., and we continue to do so.
I think that afghan would be very pretty Judy.
I am thinking of taking down my blog. I will wait until the end of April to shut it down. If I do not want it by them, down it goes. I am tried of taking pics of projects. Seems it is just a braggin' page..
Good afternoon/evening ladies,
TOPS day and we had a nice installation of officers and awards. Bruce went over with me bright and early to set up tables.
Patty, your knitting group sounds like so much fun. I'm glad you get to enjoy that regularly. How is brother's leg?
Louise, Good to hear from you.
Nina, So sorry about the difficulties your family is experiencing. Praying for wisdom and justice in the situation. I guess there are all kinds of cults around. Moonies are still around although not as noticeable as the 70s & 80s. Rajneesh is gone.
Judy, Sorry to hear how you lost contact with your grandchildren. People don't seem to realize those kids may need extended family some day and they've robbed them of it.

The church has a lot of the qualifications of a cult. I know because I use to be in the church system started by the original pastor. The pastor was Col. R. B. Theime out of Texas.
I listened on real to real and then tape. He taught pastors and they taught pastors. I know how it all messes with your mind.
So sorry about your grand children too. One thing for sure, when Christ comes it will all be resolved. That gives me comfort.
Will pray for the sadness in your heart too. We go on, but it will always be there.
Hello Nina and all,
In 1989 I went to S.Carolina to pick up my four grandsons. They had been taken away from their mother and my son because they weren't being cared for properly. I brought them to Washington and we were getting along just fine. Then in 1993 she suddenly appeared and asked for custody. The judge gave her temporary custody and permission to take them to Japan.
We saw the oldest boy just before he joined the army and the third son came to visit for a short while. We have not seen the other two since they were taken. I have eight great grandchildren by those boys/men and I have never seen any of them. I know the pain you are going through. I have been grieving for the past twenty years.
I am certainly praying that things work out for your grandchildren. They need to have a more secure life. I won't give up on that. In Oregon the custodial parent cannot move away from the other parent without permission. That may be an avenue for pursuit.
What is the cult. I thought the moonies were gone. I don't know of any other cult in Oregon, but there certainly could be more than one.
Patty, I am in the process of crocheting a stained glass afghan. I bought some verigated yarn to show to a friend who wants me to crochet an afghan for her. I plan to do broomstick lace for that afghan. She didn't like the yarn I found so I am thinking about using it in the stained glass afghan. I have another darker skein of verigated yarn and I can use it as well. I am thinking it would certainly be different and could be quite pretty. Have you an opinion on that?
Louise, I am glad you checked in however briefly. It is nice to know that you are there, even if you don't have time to write very much. I have been in that position more than once. I am trying to break my own attendance streak so I may follow your example in the future.
I didn't see anything from Ann, but as I recall she is having a chemo treatment today. I hope things are going well for her.
I'll probably drop in later.
Well time to tell everyone what is going on as brief as I can.
My son is going to court for temporary custody of the kids. She has taken them to Calif, then Oregon. He has not been allowed to see them for 5 months. That is why the custody trial which is on MARCH 26 (PLEASE PRAY). This is why we came back and rented a house. He is here with us. She is currently going to a cult church in Oregon. That is why she has changed so much in the last 5 years. They have been married 20 years. He ha 5 kids. 3 girls 18 yr, 16 yr, 7 and 2 boys 14 yr an 12.
She has also not let any of his side of the family have contact with the kids., except my youngest daughter who is in the cult too. He had no choice but to do things legally. Also he wants to put his kids in school (they were suppose to be home schooled by the mother). My grandson who was 12 can not read very well. There mother is not a bad person but very confused because of this cult. My son has no ill will against her or her family, but he has to do what is right for the kids and so they can be with there dad too.
It has been very hard for me not to have contact with my grandkids as I have lived around them for 10 years. So pray for me and my husband too.
We are in the process of getting ready for the pre-trial for temporary custody. We (including my son) want God's will in this, even if it hurts.
ALSO-my son needs a full time job. He had an interview today-pray he gets the job. It is full time and he would go to work from 7:30-3:30. This would be great for the kids during school time.
Patty-I know what you mean about snow in April. It has been like spring here and it fools the trees and then it will snow again. It is cloudy but not raining and a little windy.
Chat later too with you all
Hi Patty and all who will follow!
I will come back later and post but I just wanted to say Hi to everyone!
HAVE A GREAT DAY!
