I'm Sorry....

I have to let you all know that along with still having lots of unpacking to do, offering my services as the Recording Secretary of the Officer's Spouses Club here at Dover AFB, having my eldest daughter starting Kindergarten today, and still having two other little ones at home - one of which WAS sick this last weekend and the other appears to be sick now.... PLUS (yes, this is a huge run-on sentence because heck no I'm not done whining!!!) the new release of the SU! Fall-Winter 2008 IB&C and my DT duties to GBC, I have a husband who had to go to the ER today and now gets to go through the ordeal of passing a kidney stone.  SO...he is on bed-rest and we have been told things from "it will only take 2 days or so to pass the stone" to, "it took so-and-so 2 weeks to pass their stone".  So, we don't know what to expect and I've got little to no time to sit at the computer and blog.  So, as has become an unfortunate habit - here's my plug to subscribe to my blog so that you don't check in needlessly.  I hope to only be gone a couple of days.  Take care!!


  1. With all of that going on, you deserve to be able to whine!! Take care, and I hope your little ones and your husband are feeling better soon!!

    Ohhh Marie, I only wish I lived closer and I would come and help you!!!! Take care! Praying speedy recovery for your husband and little one!!
    Missing you, Marti

  3. You don't have to be sorry for having other things to do, especially when it comes to things that are out of your control!!! I hope everyone feels better soon, and that little Miss had a great time at school! We'll see more of your awesome and beautiful work when you have the time! ;^)

  4. Oh MAN, my husband has went through that twice. What an awful thing. I felt soo bad for him. All I could say is "drink water" he hated that, mostly because I was always telling him that before. I can't help it, it is the Army's fault!! I hope you hubby gets better soon!

  5. It always helps me to hear that others feel compelled to apologize when they can't post. No apology needed...family ALWAYS comes first : ) ! We all have times that we can't post for one reason or another...it's no big deal. Just relax and take care of the family, we'll be back to see you wonderful creations, no worries : ) !!!!

  6. Marie, Sorry to hear about Peter. Sure hope he's up and around soon! Hope he's a good patient! Give the girls a hug for me! Daniel too! Miss you all!


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a comment. I appreciate it and thank you for adding a little sunshine to my day.

Marie :)
