Sunday Brain Dump

  • I craft when I’m stressed.  It is easier to stay “busy” than to have idle time to think of the “what ifs”…. needless to say you will be seeing some of the goodies in the next couple of weeks.
  • One of my new titles that I am OH SO PROUD of is Aunt Holly and then there is Uncle Gabe and Cousin Dirk…. little Makena is here and she is PERFECT. Tiny and PERFECT.
  • My lil sis has been one tough new mama.  Out of all of us she has to have the largest pain tolerance in the family… who else could run marathons and such? Not I.  She has been really sick and in the hospital and (crossing fingers) is now home for good.  Little Makena has been in the hospital for almost all of her two weeks of life. We are OH SO THANKFUL that she received the care she needed(my sister) and that her body is fighting the infection. We got to skype with them last night and I got to meet my precious niece. OHMYGOODNESS is she tiny.  I guess you forget how little they are. Although Dirk never was quite as small as Makena : ) .
  • Dirk and I fly out early to WA tomorrow to stay with Rachel.  Rachel found this amazing job where she actually is in charge of a section of the Nursing Home she works at and is dispensing meds and saving people.  You know, normal nurse stuff. SO PROUD.  Dirk and I will be there nine days earlier than expected because Nana flew to the rescue down to Florida.  Looking forward to quality family time and some much needed time outside. <3
  • Smores in 95 degree weather.  YEP. Sweaty and worth it.  I call them Scooby Snacks because I layer on so much chocolate with burned to a crisp marshmallows.  It is divine.
  • Hoping that Jef is the guy for Emily.  HE IS MY FAVE.  Gabe thinks Ari…. we shall see. Thankgoodness that Chris is gone- a tad immature? Just a tad?
