A GREAT BIG THANK YOU to all of you sweet, caring people who sent thoughts, prayers and condolences after my mother passed. I can't believe a whole week has already gone by. I appreciate so very much all your prayers. Even though expected, it is hard to lose your mother. I was sitting upstairs watching TV with Jerry a few nights ago, and I actually started to get up and "go check on Mom".
I am back at my store trying to catch up. It seems every time I just get to the bottom of one stack, three more have formed around me. We are going to be audited soon, and there is so much we have to be prepared for. So many forms and documents and schedules!
It is a ROYAL PITA and we have to PAY THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS for the torment. Oh, the joys of owning your own business.
So even though a lot of the stress in caring for my mother is gone, there seems to be plenty to replace it.
We had to let one employee go and another one starts on Wednesday. Something else that requires a lot of preparation and paperwork, but we are real excited about our new lady because she is the same lady that has cared for my Mom for the last year, Dorine. Isn't that awesome!
I want to start making garments again as I don't seem to be losing the 10 pounds I gained back while caring for Mom. I'll be getting more exercise now, so maybe that will help. I think I will start right now by going upstairs to walk -- or is it glide -- on the Elliptical.
And!!!! I almost forgot to show you. I finished the scrappy quilt top yesterday. Ready to put her on the longarm.
Help me think of a name for this, please.
And while I was at it, I decided to get the binding ready for my Bargello. It turned out turquoise because I couldn't decide if I liked brown or turquoise better, and the turquoise was handier to cut. This picture makes me think brown would have looked better, but too late to change it now.
