I've really made progress on the dinosaur square for Christian at Love Quilts. I only subbed on Tuesday this week. I have finally found out why I felt so bad that day at the school. I was coming down with a cold. Now I've got congestion in my chest; my sinuses are bothering me; and I have a sore throat. I'll probably have to go to the doctor on Mon. But I have gotten a lot done on this square. If I don't end up in bed, I'm hoping to finish this today.
DD just left to take the GED test. She quit school right after Christmas. She's very smart, but she didn't like school. I couldn't force her to go. Once she passes the GED, she's planning to start taking college courses at Tech and then transfer to a college. She's talking about being a child psychologist. Yesterday, she and I went out together to find the high school where she has to take the test. Then we ate lunch and went shopping a little. I wasn't feeling real well, but we hadn't done anything together - just the 2 of us - in a long time! Ever since my children were young, I have tried to have some "together time" with each child as much as possible. I would highly recommend this for a parent - especially if you have more than 1 child. The Tues. before Glenn died on Friday night, he and I had gone out to a steak house to "celebrate" some accomplishment he wanted to celebrate. I wouldn't take anything for the memory of that night!
DD dyed her hair dark again. It's really darker than her original hair color, but it looks better and will grow out. She wants it back to the original color. I do, too! She and I are getting along much better since I made everyone leave. I don't think she realised it, but I think she was jealous of her BF. Her BF and I got along great! We talked a lot and she called me "Mom." I really miss her. She came the other day to pick up the rest of her stuff. She and I hugged and I broke down after she left. I really love her, but I was enabling her, not helping her. She has moved back in with her mother, and her dad is helping her get a car. Maybe I made a little difference in her life. I hope so. Well, I guess that's enough rambling for today! I hope everyone has a great day! And that God blesses you! Happy stitching!
