Squirrel Activity

Spring Flowers

I've been so busy these past few weeks.  My mom is no longer in remission and we have been going to endless medical appointments.  The oncologist said there is no cure for the type of lymphoma mom has.  She can have treatment and hopefully go into remission, but there is no way to know if and how long remission will last.  Due to her many medical issues and complications, mom has decided not to have additional treatment at this time.   It's possible that mom will change her mind later and decide to have treatment, but for now, while she's feeling ok, she's putting off treatment.

Hubby is becoming more comfortable with the new company and he enjoys the camaraderie with the new bosses.  The new company works to keep employee moral high, but they lack in how they handle human resource issues.  The payroll and benefits are still not completely ironed out and that is super stressful for us.

Not much stitching going on these days.  I have high hopes and long lists of designs I want to stitch, just not enough energy or hours in the day.  I'm so exhausted by dinner time that I can barely keep my eyes open!

It's downhill until the weekend and for once, there is nothing planned.  I'm looking forward to some much needed down time.  Just got the A Year in Chalk charts for May and June so I might even get some stitching done!

What do you have planned for the weekend?


SFS - 04/2015


Spent:  $0
Earned:  $0
Balance to Carry Over:  $94.22

I'm happy to report that I spent NOTHING again this month.

I have only one small finish to show.  This is from the Country Cottage Needleworks Classic Collection ornaments.  This auto-ship collection started last year and is a birthday gift from my daughters, so it's not included in my SFS budget.
