I’m finally feeling like I am back in the swing of things…
I took care of the grandkids some last week. It’s been forever since Carver got off the school bus at my house. He did last week.
It was just me and Carver. What a treat as that rarely happens so we played Ticket to Ride. We play the adult version and the little stinker kicked my butt!!
Kalissa had a doctor’s appointment. She needed help with Gannon so I rode along. Gannon and I went to the thrift store while Kalissa saw the doctor. If you want the scoop on Kalissa’s doctor appointment, read THIS POST from her.
We had a great haul… SEE?? You might remember that Carolyn is a prolific baby gown maker. She sends the baby gowns to me and I send them to my friend Lana who puts together baby kits for Lutheran World Relief.
Carolyn makes the gowns for T-shirt fabric. So when I’m at the thrift store, I always look for T-shirt fabric. I send it to Carolyn and she makes the gowns and sends them back to me.
Much of the fabric I send is funky prints and colors. Carolyn does an amazing job with it all and really makes the gowns look great even though some of the fabric is pretty funky. Carolyn is so great with color and often puts one of those funky fabrics with another fabric and it calms the funky fabric down and the gowns end up precious.
I’ve been hoping I could find some solid prints to give Carolyn more calm fabrics to help with making the funky prints calm down. Look what Gannon and I found at the thrift store!!
All of it is T-shirt fabric. All of it was only 50 cents per piece. YAHOO!! I ended up with about 17 yards of fabric and it was only $5 all together. YAHOO!!
I was doing the happy dance in the middle of the store!
While I was in the store, I ran into Sue from the Big Canoe Quilters. I’ve often referred to her group as the Decorah Quilters. I’m going to try hard now to call them the Big Canoe Quilters.
Anyway, Sue said, she had a box in her car for me. We both frequent the thrift store. She had hope of running into me one day and she did.
She had a box of linens for me to pass on to Kayla. They were just lovely lines and I was happy to get them to pass on. Sue also had a Christmas Card to me that the post office wouldn’t deliver. UGH. Sue forgot to NE on the address.
This totally surprised me. Seriously. We are a town of 250 people. There isn’t another Kramer in town besides Karl. I really don’t think that sticker was put on locally…ugh.
As you can see, I am back in the swing of things. I am helping others more than I need help and that is a wonderful feeling. My blood sugar is still a little funky but it’s coming around. I still have an off taste but that’s coming around too.
If you see me on the street, I look back to my normal self…and happily, I’m adding back a few more childcare kiddos this week. What a relief that I am really heading back to the old me.
MANY and MUCH thanks to all of you who have been cheering me on. I go back in five months to see if the treatment worked. Fingers crossed. In the meantime, I’m not going to worry about it and just be me.
