Why can't some people take kindness well? I was at the grocery store shopping.When I get in line I always look behind me to see if the person has less stuff than me.I make it a habit to let them get in front of me.I had never had a problem with a person getting in front because I know how I feel when I am in back of someone with a load of groceries.Well there was a guy behind me he had one item.So I told him ,he can get in front of me.He said no that's okay.I said go ahead I have a lot of groceries and you only have one thing.That guy would not get in front of me.When I said I had a lot of groceries I had a lot.I don't know his reason for not taking me up on that.

Try and do something kind for someone this weekend.

God bless have a good weekend!!!

The truth

I had to laugh yesterday because one of my sons told me a story.He came in from school yesterday and said someone stepped on my glasses and they broke.So I said let me see them.He gave them to me to see,but as I started looking at them the lenses looked like someone had took something and chipped away at the lenses.So I started thinking someone in his class was trying to destroy his glasses.So now I am upset.So I had to take the glasses to get repaired.Told the lady what my son said happen to the glasses. She said wow looks like a dog chew on these glasses.OMG all could do was laugh.

What I think happen was they were doing their homework on the floor in their room Monday.He most of left his glasses on the floor and the dog chewed them up.Now I am always telling them don't leave important stuff on the floor and close your bedroom door because our dog will chew up everything.I have a black Lab they are known for chewing up stuff.Didn't find this out until after we got the dog.So I guess my son was scare to tell me the truth.I haven't said anything to him yet.I don't know why this is funny to me because I had to pay 61.00 to get them fixed with insurance on the glasses.

Crocheted bag

Yesterday was reading one of my crocheting books.It was showing how to add beads to your work.So got some yard and started practicings. It was fun so I made into a make-up bag and added some lining in it. I think I am going to give it to my kids swim teacher for mothers day.

Nice Weather

I was able to do some crocheting.This is how far I have gotten. I think I am going to take the top part out its not looking right to me. This top has been giving me a headache.
OMG what a great weekend the weather was perfect.We had 75 degrees on Saturday and 80 on Sunday.The kids had a birthday party Saturdays to go to.After that we went and got ice cream.Now I live in Michigan this still don't mean put all the winter clothes up.

In my Sunday school class I had a new student.He was four years old.He came in crying didn't want to leave his big brother.As you can see by the picture he didn't cry long.My DD was able to see how she look when she cry like that.HaHA!!!

Yesterday while watching the news I was getting very angry about the killings in Virgina.You know we all go thorough things.Life don't always turn out how you want it. Some people going to like you and some not.When I was in school I was talk about every day about how skinny I was. Somebody had to say something
about it EVERYDAY. Some days I would come home crying about it.And this happen to me all the way up to high school.I never felt like going in killing people about it.All this school killings and job killings is to much.People who don't have anything to do with this people or even know them are getting killed. Its just crazy.

While what do you do when you are a little down go shopping. went to Walmart and found this cute make-up bag for 2.00$. I thought this would be a cute purse for my DD.On the purse it says angel SOOO cute.So I said self if DD gets a purse why can't I. went to TJ MAXX and found a purse for me also.Then went to JO Ann Fabric pattern sale and got a pattern for my DD. Now I am feeling a lot better.

Have a great weekend!!!

Childs project

My son Justin had a project that he had to do in class. He had to build a wishing well. My dh worked with him on it.My dh gets so into project for kids. He had to go to the craft store to buy the things he needed for project. My dh likes to be perfect in any thing he do. So it took him a while to pick out the materials for the project.It took them about two hours to make the project. I have to say it come out good.They were very proud of the outcome.I know you parents out there have had to do many projects with your kids for school.When it finished and it turns out good you feel good when they take it to school.Now the only thing is I hope he gets on the bus and nothing happen to the project.HA HA!!

Didn't get to do alot of things with kids we wanted to do. A friend of our lost his mom this week. She had this bad cold for two years and didn't get it checked out until she started having real bad chest pains. When she went in she was told she a cancer in both lungs and it had went to her bone. She was told that it was nothing they could do because it was in so many places.Maybe just maybe if she had of went in sooner she would be here now.If you have any health issues get it check out don't wait. Ladies get those mammograms!!!!!!!!!Just wanted to create awareness of getting your health check out.

God bless

Dress done

I finally finish this dress. I had a little problems with dress I think it was because of my beginner skills. The dress calls for a hem band at the bottom of the dress.When got to that part the hem band was to short.I didn't have enough fabric to cut another one and make it longer.I had this fabric for about a year so I know there was no more of this fabric at JO Ann Fabric. So I had to measure for how much fabric I needed and I used the scarps I had to finish it.I think I am going to try make this dress again to see what I did wrong.One day!!!

Weekend over

Well my boys had great weekend. Their sleepover went great. It was so great that he wanted to stay over another night. But he wasn't able to stay.That slepover needed to end!My sweetpea got some kind of stomach virus the night of the sleepover. So I had to take care of her while doing the sleepover.When she finally went to sleep I was able to crochet a small hat.I got the pattern out of my Cool girls guide for crocheting book. It wasn't as hard as I thought it would be.

Went to church sunday only had two students in my sunday school class. We had our lesson and watch the prince of Egypt.They enjoyed it.I was glad my daughter was feeling better Sunday.Everything went fine this weekend.
