Final thoughts for 2008

Well, Christmas Eve was definately interesting. Dad "ran away" from mom while at Walmart. She has him wait for her in the McDonald's with a cup of coffee while she does a little quick shopping. Well, I guess he got tired of waiting on her because he walked out of the store!
She called me after she had looked thru the store, called security to look and so on. I called my kids and we all converged on Walmart to search for Dad.
Security checked the cameras and show he had walked out of the store at 10:36 am. That was 45 minutes before we got there. We called the police. I could just picture us on the 6:00 news. I called my brother and sister who live in other states. I know they couldn't help search, but they could pray.
BTW, dad has dementia.
Anyway, within a few minutes the police called back. They found him walking down the median of a 6 lane busy expressway! They asked where he was headed and he guessed McDonald's would be good. They took him to a different McD's that was close. He was about 1/4 mile from where he had started!
Dad had no clue he "was lost". He apologized for causing trouble and just didn't understand why all the fuss. Mom took him home and put him to bed for a nap. He doesn't remember a thing.
Thank God he was alright and safe.

Ok, 70* Sunday morning and 26* Sunday night. That's just not right! Today is in the 30*s and tomorrow warmer. Then again on Sunday is another big, colder drop. My poor lil' fingers.

Rachael is coming home tomorrow. I am glad. Don't say anything, but we miss her. Harley does too. He gets upset for a couple days when she goes back to school.

My knee MRI turned out ok, sorta. Doc says surgery could help when I am ready for that. I am not ready for it. She is going to try to get me an appointment for a port though. I have had 2 new meds added this month. What's one or two more right?

I have not done any Christmas shopping yet. Maybe this weekend. Well, it has to be this week. We are having Christmas this Sunday night. And on Thursday, and next Saturday night.

Guess I'd better get offline and get busy. Oh well.

Ok, I think I am finally finished with all medical tests for the year. Today I had an MRI on my knee. I am pretty sure it will show one nasty bone spur. I still have 3 doctors' appointments left this month.

I have a Craft Fair at Lake Park Elementary tomorrow and a Trunk Show at Shepherd Mall on Tuesday the 16th. Yea! I will be done for the year other than special orders.

After the first, I think I will take some classes. I am not sure on what, but I will figure it out.

Hope you all had a blessed Thanksgiving. I did!

Shows, shows, shows

This is my Ruby and Pearl bracelet...yes, real rubies! This is my Sapphire and Pearl bracelet. My birthstone.
These are my black diamonds. The picture isn't so great, but the sparkle is! I haven't decided how to make these up yet. I am sure it will be a bracelet.

This is my first born...Ben. He turned 30! He even has a few gray hairs. Happy Birthday son.

What a busy week. Again!
This last week I had a 2-day show in Norman, OK. It was really slow on Friday, but Saturday picked up a bit. I finished off 2 special orders for Ornament covers. They are already delivered. I have a watch to size for a new customer. This week I have another show...Lake Park Elementary Holiday Market. I have not done this one before, but have heard by all that it is a great one!
