lilliepad:
I would like to have until May 10 to finish Linny's block and get it in the mail to Stephanie. Please let me know if there are any issues with my deadline.

May 10th to mail sounds good to me Lillie. I've been a bit in the same boat, and I'm trying something new (to me) for Robin's.

Robin:
I also think he might be concerned about how they will live and support themselves as if they get engaged now and married next spring he will still have two years of school left.   He wants to be a Physical Therapist and that is a 5 year degree program.   Knowing how he has been raised as the man is suppose to take care of things I'm sure there is some hesitation to marry and not be sure he can provide for her.    But I know it will all work out one way or another

Made me think of how long Paul held onto that ring before he popped the question to Melissa. He wanted everything to be just right.

I'm happy to hear they're going to fix Laurie's car. It'll be a big help for her not to have a car payment right now.

Robin:
Everyone else I hope you have a bright, cheerful, precious Wednesday.

Wishing you the same...

He is alot like her Dad in some ways, which means you can push and pull but he's going to make the big decisions in his own time.
  It's sweet that she's picked someone like her Dad.  Sounds like he's got a good head on his shoulders.

Seems like we turned the corner a little today.   The adjuster didn't total her car.  They are going to fix it which is for the best since it's paid for now will just have to wait and see what happens with the other things.

  That's really good news.  Nice that she won't have to have a car payment on top of the whole thing.

Stephanie:

My goodness Donna. Is it COPD? I just wondered because of the tendency toward bronchial illness.

Stephanie, thank you for your words of encouragement, and I'm glad you're not suffering from a long term illness with your ribs.  However, you need to be patient with yourself to let it heal.  I hope you have a lot of help at home.  I went through something similar with my back many years ago, and it took a lot of bed rest and help at home to get better.

No, I don't have COPD, but I do have sensitive sinuses.  I will have a bad asthmatic coughing spell if something in the air irritates my throat, like smoke or frying chilies.  That's a long story.  My DH was frying chilies one day, and my throat started closing up, and I ran out into the yard where I stayed until he could turn on fans and open the windows!  Now it's funny, but then, no.  I haven't really had bronchitis in a couple of years, probably due to better health care.  I've always had a tendency for a chronic cough, though.  Fortunately, that has gotten better over the past few years.  The heart meds are due to a family history from my dad's side.  Even though my weight was good and my cholesterol levels were normal, an arteriogram still showed some blockage, and my blood pressure was getting out of control quite a bit.  That was several years ago.  So, since then I've been on medication for that.   I'd love to get off of them, though.  So, in order to do that, I've started exercising more since retiring, and trying to loose a little more weight.  We'll see!

quilting itself for therapy

MamaG, my quilting is my sanity.  Without time stitching everyday, I would not be a woman who my family could live with.

Linny, I'm glad your daughter's getting back on her feet again.  Yes, it's good they weren't together many years, like I was...it was 29 years for me.  Life is good now.  The good thing for your daughter is hopefully that experience helped her see what she really wants out of life and relationships.   Tell your daughter that there are blue skies ahead!

Robin, thanks for the welcome.  Since you asked:  I taught at a high school my first 2 years back in the US, here in Houston, as a choir director.  That's a story within itself.  Suffice it to say, the stress from that was too much, and caused some bad effects on my health, so I switched to Pre-Kinder, bilingual, for about 8 years, then 2nd grade bilingual, and finally the last 4 years, as a kindergarten teacher.  Having taught from the youngest to the oldest I found that there's not much difference in their behaviors sometimes!  LOL

Mamag, very cute bunny.  Are those crocheted legs?  I love the colors!  I like to go to You Tube for tutorials, too.

Donna,

I totally agree about there not being much difference between the ages.   I tell my students sometimes I swear teenagers and toddlers are very similar.  They look at me like I'm calling them a bad name.  But then I explain that these two time periods in a persons life is when they have a great desire to be independent and parents desire to hold on a little longer.

I've been teaching Family and Consumer Science aka Home Economics for 27 years.  Mostly on the high school level.  I totally understand what you mean about the stress thing.   I'm looking forward to retirement however I have a ways to go since I will reach retirement at 52 and the state of Florida deems that as to young to retire I will probably enter what is called the drop program which is an enhanced retirement to encourage people to stay in teaching longer for another 5 Maybe.

Donna C-I have that same cough problem.My throat becomes irritated and I start coughing. Sometimes it's so bad I can not even have a conversation without coughing every 2-3 words. When it gets that bad, I usually just keep my mouth shut for months at a time.

I have severe allergies to trees, specifically pine, (of course I live in the pine tree belt) and when they start spewing their pollen, I'm a goner. I've had the shots, but they did nothing but consume my $$$. I usually stay inside during the spring and summer months. That's a real bummer for me because I love to garden. We are slowly changing our landscaping to plants/trees that require very little maintenance.

Robin---the block is just beautiful!  Love the butterfly and the pretty flower.  The flowers remind me of cherry blossoms.  Thank you!
