My poor needle has not been picked up in so long. Sure, I’ve been busy and I’ve been stressed, but that’s never stopped me from stitching before. I don’t like what’s going on with this mojo thing, but I’ve discovered that the more I wonder where it went, the more disturbed and upset about it I get. Maybe I’ll just keep fondling my STASH, reading blogs and browsing through magazines until the desire to pick up a needle returns.
Over 550 students participated in the commencement ceremony on Saturday, May 12.
My daughter received her degree and received the Dean’s Commendation, an honor for maintaining a 3.5 or above grade point average for all semesters.

My beautiful girls sharing a sister moment.
It’s been a rough few months for little Snickers. First she had the bulging disc in her neck and was on total rest for 6-8 weeks. Then she developed a bronchial thing that had to be treated with a steroid for 4 weeks. As soon as she was done with the steroid medication, she started having accidents in the house. Called the vet and he said to collect a urine sample and bring her in. Have you ever tried to collect a urine sample from a dog who doesn’t want you to collect a sample? I’m sure my neighbors were laughing at me!
Turns out, she had a urinary tract infection and was treated with antibiotics for 2 weeks. Now my poor little sweetheart is having a congestive heart failure flare up and has to be on a diuretic for a few weeks.
ROSES FOR MOTHER’S DAY
My girls gave me 2 dozen roses, candy and a sterling silver necklace.
Mom Update: My mom has been on a two month break from cancer treatments and will be seeing the oncologist again at the end of the month. At that time, he will discuss with us the new treatment plan and it’s risks. During this two month break, my mom has been gaining weight and having difficulty breathing. The type of blood cancer my mom has causes kidney and heart failure as well as a multitude of other systemic problems. The next two weeks will be filled with tests, blood work and more doctor appointments.
Have a great weekend!
