Trailer Makeover / Still Working

We worked all day on Mobile Home Makeover!!! We had Nephew Jeremy and Dewayne's Friend , Valenten helping today. I Know.... I have to take camera with me to take pictures. I keep forgetting..... We did get the rest of the windows put in and the sliding door between dining area and sun room installed. I finished painting bathroom ( main). The trailer is ugly as Sin right now. I keep saying, it will look great when we finish, if we finish....

Mom started a new chemo treatment, Thursday. I spent Thursday night with her and took her back for her shot on Friday. She doesn't have alot of energy.

I will get pictures up soon.. I promise !!!

See Ya,

Memorial Day

As you can see in picture, Joshua had a great Memorial Day celebration. He played with his bubble machine and then we filled his pool for him to play in.
And , Yes that is a play tattoo... He loves his play tattoos.

Family came and we grilled out and eat to much.

Joshua just went to sleep.... Tired little boy.

Back to work tomorrow on the Mobile Home Disaster........

Door & Carpet

I finished jury case yesterday. Guilty of child pornography. Was a bad case. Had to watch videos of children in sex acts that was evidence in the case. Hope to never do that again. Enough of that...

We bought the siding door that goes between eating area and sunroom last night. I was going to get the panel french door. But door would open to the inside and take away from dining area. Decided in panel siding door. Also bought the carpet to put down in living room. Dewayne (DH) has in his mind if he doesn't have carpet on the floors, He is freezing... He is right in some ways and I would rather vacuum than have to sweep and then use a mop. HE WON.

My family is having a cookout here at my house Sunday. I have to start getting my house in order. I guess my spring cleaning is starting today...

Take care,

Court Tuesday

I was picked yesterday for jury duty. I have not been able to do much stitching.. I have taken some pictures of the cross stitch WIP's. They are not good pictures.

Here they are:

With needle & Thread Designs. Freebie for Spring

I chose to do the stitching with bright colors

La-D-Da - Freebie

I chose chestnut WDW sticthed over one thread.

All About Halloween - Cricket Collection

This is just some that I am working on. I also got a cute pattern to stitch Tea Towels. Pattern is by Crabapple Hill Designs, Called Grandma's Tea Towels.

Mobile Home Disaster Update::::

We got some of the master bath walls finished last night. I am going to have to take my camera with me when I go to work on next. DH says he has a coupon for Lowe's. So I guest we will be heading there tonight.

All for now....

Rain, Rain, & More Rain

Well, I was going to take a picture of the Mobile Home Disaster today... But all it has done is rain since Friday. Guess what, more rain this week. We did get 2 new windows replaced and some beaded board put up in the master bath. Makes total of 5 new windows installed and 4 more to do. We did take son-in-law and daughter w/ josh to get something to eat and make a detour to Home Depot today. I got a gallon of pain mixed of the must soothing green color to paint the walls in the master bath . Son-in-law has been real helpful this weekend. His only weekend off this month. Wasn't that nice?....

I have jury duty this week. I have never been, don't know what to expect. Some people told me to take a book. I was like what for?... They say you sit around until they decide if they want you.
I don't do sitting all day to good. I guess I will found out tomorrow.....

Until next post....

What a Day !!!

I took my mom to her chemo treatment today. We have about 4 more treatments. I say we because I will be there with her through all this. She has lost her hair. Has a great wig... Looks just like the way she always wears her hair. She has been having to tell everyone it is a wig.. LOL... She had reddish blonde short spiked hair. Not her real color... Cousin Todd said his mother and my mother ( 1 1/2 yrs apart and close as 2 peas ) did not even know what color their real hair was because they have dyed their hair for years... LOL Our family deals with stress by laughing and keeps things on a light and uplifting note. Mom has to go back tomorrow for a shot. Raeanne ( My Daughter ) & Joshua will go with us tomorrow so that we can go by Babies R Us. Mom will be extra tired tomorrow so we will not stay long.

Also at this stressful and busy time we are renovating a trailer across the street from our place. We purchased the trailer and land on a foreclosure deal from the bank. ( Just imagine Mobile Home Disaster ) The show used to come on CMT with Comedian Capp as host. Place is not bad, but not good. I will post pictures of our Mobile Home Disaster and all the renovations and progress. Thought about renting out at first, but now we may move into it this fall. We Call it Downsizing... LOL

Baby Update !
Raeanne is having a hard time. She is diabetic, and did great the whole time with Joshua, but this little girl is giving her problems already...LOL Uncontrolled sugar lows.

So as you can see, It Has Been A Day.
