My day didn't start off very good with my being a whopping 5 minutes late to work and you would swear the way they was carrying on that I was hours late. I don't know what side of bed they got out of because their attitude didn't change as the day went on.
I was glad to see quitting time and get out in that wonderful 66 degrees, sunshine, and a light breeze. It truly made you feel as though Spring was here.
I checked with my son to see what he would like for dinner only to hear his voice and know that he had a bad enough asthma attack that I didn't want him driving home. I fed my hubby some supper and off we went to Lenexa, Kansas where he works to get him. Round trip was two and a half hours. I don't know if I could do it every day, but then I know that you go where you can find a job now days.
He ate a little after he got home and went to bed which is the best thing for him, but it causes mom to have a roller coaster of emotion for a while. Between him and his father, I can have my hands full at times. With God's help, I manage to do whatever I have to do to take care of the situation. I then have to unwind so that I can sleep. I use to cry every time I had to put my husband in the hospital at first, but now it is not quite that bad and if I do cry, I try not to cry in front on them.
I gave myself the bouquet of flowers because I thought I needed them.
I had something happen in my etsy shop that was really strange. I had someone heart my shop and one of the items in my shop, which I was feeling good about because I had gotten up to 90 which meant I was getting closer to a 100, but this evening I look after I got home and they were gone. I know we have people there doing things that they shouldn't so I don't know if that was the reason or not, because they talked like they are going to ban some of them. I will wait and see.
Well I really must close for tonight.

Boy, sounds like a bad day to me. But then, even bad days come to an end. As for etsy, lots of strange things go on in there, just have to ignore them. I am sure you pulled out of this with flying colors, and of course some flowers always help too. How about being introduced on ECS blog? Are you interested? If so, just let me know and I will email you some questions to answer. You can send me some pictures of your work and you are up and running my friend, Char

(((Shirely))) What a day you had. Hope your son is doing better. I can relate so much regarding each time your hubby goes into the hospital....it seems to get to be 'normal' after a while...at least for me. Of course, he doesn't understand why I don't get so upset anymore. I think, maybe I just detach, somewhat. Who know's. We do what we need to do get through.
I haven't had anything strange in my Etsy Shop...that I know of. Guess I need to keep a better eye on it.
Dad remembers his Mother making olives and pickled eggs (ickin the crocks. I remember he tried to make the eggs one time....ewwwwww. Stunk to high Heaven, LOL He never tried again. We shouldn't have made so much fun of him, but at the time...
Funny how we look back at things and the way we acted. But as they say "hindsight is 20 20".
Sure hope you have a much calmer day and that you finally got to sleep. ANd that the people at work took a chill pill before they came in today! Geesh, 5 min, give me a break. Must be so nice to have a perfect life that you can complain about someone being a little late.
Hang tough girlie, love ya!~
