I read on ME's blog and some others about a new shipment of ME products at Michaels. ME herself said they were throughout the store and some were $1 and others more. Since my Hubby got me a gift card to Michaels I had to go, of course. I looked all over before finding them all in one area near the back of the store and all for $1. So sweet. Little cross stitch sets, paper dolls (my favorite......dolls, clothes and little scenes) note cards, notebooks, pens, paper packs) Then at the checkout they had all kinds of Christmas ME things for a quarter. I passed on those. Almost an insult for ME.
I also found this gnome. Can't figure him out. He is lightweight, probably plastic. Eyes, and cheeks painted. His thumbs are a little chipped. He was on clearance for $1.50. I am going to try to paint him and see what happens. I couldn't just leave him there on the clearance rack by himself.
We are hearing alot about the flu and deaths caused from the flu. Please take heed. If you haven't had a flu shot you still can. It takes a couple weeks for them to be effective. I posted on FB about this and right away someone posted about what was in them and she wasn't putting that in her body. Well, I am sure that there are some of you that feel the same way and that's okay. But just remember it was two years ago that my cousin got sick and died from H1N1 three weeks later. It was an ugly death. Her lungs crystallized making it harder and harder to breath. Nothing helped. Our hearts were broken over her death. Do you want to go through that or have your family go through that.
Today I had a nice lunch with a former co-worker. Her father is one that I have asked you to pray for. He has cancer and has been in the hospital so much. He is loosing his job and his insurance. She is only 26 and lives at home. She said that their life (hers and her parents) is pretty much over, meaning financially. So sad, but so true. She is giving all she makes to keep her family going. It still was a good visit.
So I walk in the house. The phone rings.........my DIL in Colorado telling me my grandson is sick......I get a FaceBook message from my son telling me why he thinks he needs to move (this is the one with a disability and the one that doesn't make good decisions).....then I get a text from my daughter in Colorado and so does my DIL that my granddaughter may have broken her ankle and is being put in a cast. Then the daughter calls and I get off the phone with the DIL. Then the dog throws up twice on the carpet. Okay, this all happened in about 30 minutes. .......And I don't even have kids at home. Well, other than the ones I babysit. They were easy today compared to this one half hour. Geez.
Same dog was sick a couple days ago but then got better. She has been limping now for three days. Acts like she is not in pain. I made her a vet appointment for tomorrow.
the HEART SWAP is filling up. I will post the names in my next post. I think I better quit while I am ahead.
