Sunny Sunday

Wow, it is cooler day today but it is still hot. The weekend is flying by and I still have to make some things to finish up some swaps. I only join a few a month but it seems like they are all due at one time. At least I will have a happy mailbox. lol
I spent Friday night at the ER with my oldest son. He had an allergic reaction to something. He didn't eat anything different that he doesn't eat all the time. He spent the night at his friends house in VA Beach and woke up like that. He is at his house all the time so it shouldn't have been anything there. He didn't come home until 5pm and said he needed to go to the hospital. I almost threw up when I saw how bad he looked. I can't believe he waited so long. He took Benadryl and went to sleep until the afternoon. Then he finally decided to let me know. The hospital told him how dangerous that was. We were there about four hours. The people in the waiting room were not happy that he went right in, but he looked terrible! They gave him a bunch of fluids and IV medications. We got a steriod prescription and came home. He looked alot better when he woke up. He was more angry about his ruined weekend. lol Today, he is back at his friends so he is feeling better.
So that has been my fun weekend!

Muggy Monday!

It is so hot. The temperature is 84 but it seems so much hotter. I hate summer, except for the sunshine. I love fall weather and hope it gets here soon. The kids will be out of school next week. Then I will have to deal with them eating, fighting, and complaining nonstop. Maybe I can find some little camps for them to go to. My daughter has been cleaning her room for six months and it still not done. I am so over it! I even threatened to put a picture on Myspace so all her friends can see it, but she still doesn't have it done!
I bought a huge clear container today at Walmart to organize my fabric better. I have it in plastic containers but they are everywhere. Hopefully, I can fit everything into this one container. I have been busy crafting all weekend. Got some Annie, stitcheries, wooden firecrackers, and pincushions done. I need to start on my quilt blocks. Maybe I can find the fabric I want to use when I am sorting my fabrics. I am watching the baby for a couple of hours, so nothing will get done. He is crawling and into everything! I do not miss having a baby! lol It has been nine years since I had to deal with this. Doesn't look like my daughter will be moving out anytime soon, so I better get started babyproofing everything!
