is the rollercoaster over yet wow have things been busy. I actually uploaded pictures 2 days ago and am just now getting a second to post.
I had a wonderful suprise in the mail yesterday I got these beautiful stick markers from my secret pal. I must say this round of secret pal has been absolutly wonderful, I have a great pal this time.Thank You Pal.

want to see what I did last weekend. Saturday I ripped out my entire carpet and fixed a hole in the floor that went all the way to the insulation under the house. I knew it was mushy but I didnt think it would be that bad. My buddy Mark came over to help since Ray has such bad allergies he didnt dare help in case he had an asthma attack. So Sunday once all the dust was down and we had spent a couple of hours on the boat catching nothing we did the entire floor in tile. They are the self stick kind but when you do them at an angle you have to cut every edge all the way around. When we were done we changed the way the room was set up. I want to get a small rug for the middle but I'm really happy with the way it came out.
Saturday Michael also gave me a surprise while we were taking aout the carpet I happened to look at Michael and went Mike what did you do to your hair. He says I cut it I want shorter hair. He had taken his scizzors and chopped a piece of his hair right down to the skin. I had to take him to the barber and get the rest shaved almost completly off. He was able to keep just a smidgen and told Michael next time just tell your mom to bring you here instead of trying it yourself. It was hard no to laugh while telling him he shouldnt do that. You've seen his pictures its not like it was long but he wants it gone and that works for me. At least he is a boy and my daughter never did that.
We are leaving to go camping Friday night and will be home next tuesday unless something happens to papa then we will be home earlier. He actually looked pretty good today they had washed him up and made him smell all pretty. I still stop everyday some days are harder than others but when he knows I'm there and gives me a hug and says your my girl its all worth it.

See you after vacation unless something interesting happens then I'll come back and tell you.

Update I had to come back I found this at Knitlani and thought it was cool so I had to post it.

What type of Fae are you?

Happy Birthday Jamie my little girl is 16 today. I feel old I have spent half my life with her. I got pregnant at 16 and had her at 17 so I really dont remember life before her. I'm not posting pictures of her because she is at the I hate having my picture takes faze of her life. You take out a camera and all you get are pictures of her hand in front of her face. but let me say she is my beautiful girl and I wouldn't have her any other way. and did I tell you the best news she got into the alternative ed program and Might I say might if she works her ass off graduate the same year as her class. This program only takes 10 kids and she had to interview to get in. She made out like a bandit at the bbq we had for her sunday everyone gave her cash what teen doesnt like cash. She called me today at work she gets to mail in her application to go for her driving road test. Kat can you believe she is going to be driving holy shit time flys. We ran into a friend that kat and I know named Norman at walmart the other day he hadnt seen Jamie in about 12 years he couldnt believe it was her it made me chuckle she is the same hight as me.

now to praise my little guy who the opposit of his sister LOVES getting his picture taken must be the age. Well Michael got his green belt at tae kwon do and he's only 5. He almost never complains about going to class and want to start sparing on Saturdays now that t-ball is over. So now I leave you with a couple of pictures of him.

Update on my grampa he is still alive everybody is shocked as to why there is nothing left of him but he said last week he wants to make it to his 88th birthday on the 26 and that stubborn old man might just do it. But today I dont know his bed was wet and he has a cathiter they arent sure if he is losing bowel control or what they were coming in to change his bed when I left.I'm still going everyday at lunch. I dotn know how my meme stays there all day everyday I would go nuts with boredom all he does is sleep all day now he doesnt talk at all.

We got a call last night that Rays grampa is in the hospital he isnt doing to hot either when it rains it pores. I just hope that they both dont pass the same time and have to pick which to go to Rays grampa lives in Mass. Ive posted pictures of him before with michael he is the sweetest man Ray is as close to him as he can be living so far away.
Next friday we are leaving for camp until the 4th I just pray that nothing happens when we are gone and have no phone service up there. Cross your fingers for me ok.

I have not fallen off the face of the earth, I went to fiber frolic last weekend in the rain and had a blast with my friends, we brought lots of drinking beverages with us and by the end of each day we were soooo tired that not much got drunk. I got home Sunday night laid everything out to dry and crashed. the last couple of days have been filled with work, tae kwon do (micheael got his green belt on Monday night) I have visited my papa every day at lunch and last night we signed Michael up for boy scouts, it doesnt really start until fall but this is the early reg so he can do some things with them over the summer. Today I'm leaving work at noon cuz I get to go sit at the hospital for my next remicade treatment it takes about 4 hours they say after this one I should start seeing a real difference in my crohns (I hope) . I did take a crochet lesson last weekend on making chair pads from rags I brought enough to make one with me at the hospital so I'm not bored.
I did take lots of pictures over the last week but I have a hard time loading them at work so I will try to get some photos up tonight. I'm also gonna take a picture of something I bought for my secret pal its the coolest thing.

I actually loaded some pictures to post 3 days ago and I just havent had time I'm sorry the first picture is michael at t-ball last saturday

the second pictures is the yarn I got from my SP8 and made into a shawl. I know, I know it looks like a big fancy g string. But I gave it to my meme and she liked it or she said she did so that is all that matters.

What I have been busy on is getting ready for this weekend I am going to the Maine Fiber Frolic with a couple of friends for the entire weekend. I am bringing the tent, canopy and paper products, J is bringing some moose meat and some baby angoria bunnies to sell, L. is bringing 4 of her alpacas and the booze and that could be the most important thing cuz look at the weather. and this is no joke this is the actual weather forcast. tonight my darling husband went and bought us a canopy so I have something to cook under and we can hide from the rain. I think we will still have a blast I have been looking forward to this weekend for the last couple of months I so need a break from life rain or no rain. I'll take lots of pictures for you this weekend speaking of that I just reminded myself that I need to charge my batteries for my camera.

I'm gonna leave you with the funniest video I have seen yet. Tell me you dont remember doing some of these dances growing up. Later
