Rah! Rah! Rah!

She's almost finished! I've just got to finish the backstitching and sign it. I mailed the dinosaur square yesterday, and I plan to mail this one tomorrow. I have worked all day 3 days on her. I like the way the greens look. I have 1 more charity square that I have to finish very soon. It's due April 15th. I'll start it tomorrow. I also want to visit my mom tomorrow, if I feel like it. My cold is better, but my sinuses are still bothering me some. I've had a slight sinus headache today. I'm hoping it will be all clear tomorrow!
DD took the GED test Saturday. She said it was easy and felt pretty good about how she did on it. It will be several weeks before we find out whether she passed it or not. Everything continues to be going smoothly. She and I are getting along much better! We're talking more and spending more time together. During all the turmoil of that day that I threw everyone else out, she got very angry and finally pulled out the BIG gun - "You wish I had died instead of Glenn!" It really floored me - although I knew that one day that would come out of her mouth! I didn't say anything right after she said it. I was too stunned and was terrified that I would say the wrong thing. Later in the day when we had both calmed down, she was doing something in the kitchen and I was stitching in the den. I asked her if she knew why I had retired when Glenn died. She said, "No." I said, "I retired so I could spend as much time with you as possible. I retired so I could take you to school everyday and pick you up everyday. I retired so that you and I could do things together and so I could try to protect you! I love you more than you will ever know!" She didn't say anything, but we have been much closer since that happened and we are much kinder to each other! She's been cross stitching with me. I gave her a kit at Christmas that is 6 puppies playing in laundry. She has finished one of the puppies. It's a very hard kit and she has done a great job. I want to show a picture of it on my blog, but she wants me to wait until she gets it all finished. I'll keep trying to talk her into letting me post a picture of it now. Better go and finish that backstitching on the cheerleader bear! Have a happy stitching day and may God bless all of you!

Lovely stitching!
You sure did say the right thing to your daughter, Vicki. I think you're really doing great with her.
Have a Happy Easter.

You did really well with the color conversion. The greens look fabulous. I'm so glad that you and your DD have cleared the air a bit and are spending some more quality time together. :)

Wonderful news! I am so happy for you and your DD.
Cheerleader looks great! I like the green, a very pretty and happy color.
I hope your sinus troubles are all clear and gone very soon.
>>And thank you for your comment(s) on my blog. :)

Kid's emotions are all over the place at that age (working from my own dim and distant memories, lol) but it's clear that you both love and care about each other very much. You're doing a great job! Keep at it :)

I'm another nosey soul who'd love to see your DD's progress, lol.

Nice job on the colour conversion too. Another great finish!
