Stressful Weekend

courtesy of

My picture reminds me of the road to the farm with the snow on it . I like the changes of the four seasons, but I am getting a little tired of the snow.
We made it home from

 the nursing home to only come down with the flu bug that is going around at the moment.
My hubby was not only sick, but my son, and I all have had it. You really feel rough and hopefully I will feel like going to work tomorrow. I have so much to catch up with not being able to work as much last month.
I worried the most about my hubby with his immune system being out of whack. He may just come down with whatever he comes in contact with. We have been very careful to only take him for a ride in the car. I know before we came home they were having people out because of sickness. I don't know where we got it because we had stayed away from our family so we wouldn't get it. We are suppose to have lousy weather this week starting with rain, freezing rain, and snow again. Just what we need. I could see the rain maybe. It might help wash away all of the germs.

I have got my luck of the Irish table runner half done. I hope to finish it in the next couple of days. It gave me something else to think about other then what was going on at the house. I did manage to get my taxes figured before I got sick. I didn't feel bad until late afternoon. Besides getting my taxes done, I went to K-Mart to pick up a new medication. They told me it was expensive, but I just about died when they told me the co-pay was $350.00. They had only ran it one way and when I ask if they had submitted it to another insurance they said no. Well it finally got down to half, but I hate to see what it will cost when we hit the lovely donut hole again.
I can't wait to see the medal and picture of my youngest grandson with his pinewood derby car. He won second at his mommy's company function on Saturday. He was really proud. It made daddy happy. They had a good time which is important.

My other two grandson"s are getting back to normal after being sick. You can always tell by the way they eat. They all are growing so very fast. Well it is time to go to bed. Have a great week.

Hi Shirley,
My goodness you and your family have really had a time of it lately. I pray everyone gets well and your hubby is protected from the germs that could cause him to get sick.
The picture is beautiful but I imagine you are a bit tired of the white stuff for this season.
Congrats to your grandson on his win with his derby car. What a fun time for him.
Your newest runner sounds beautiful. I was just over to visit your etsy shoppe and everything is gorgeous. You are so talented and have darling designs.

Hope this week you feel good and stay warm from the rain and ice coming your way. We have rain and cooler temps in our prediction this week too.

Thank you for the sweet birthday wishes and your kind comments.
Hugs from Texas,
Celestina Marie XOXO

Hi Shirley!
This has been a bad winter for you not only because of flu and snow but with your husbands health problems. It must be difficult to keep a positive attitude but you certainly seem to have one. I think that is what helps us cope when things get tough...that and family and faith. Lots of prayers going up that this is a much better week for you. Take good care of yourself.

Oh Shirley, you have had it bad - I am so sorry for your illness!
It would be nice if the rain would wash away the germs - ours can be frozen by the snow we have had lately - thankfully teh sun shone today and a little of it melted.
I hope you will post a picture of your runner when you get it finished and I also hope some of the luck rubs off on you; I think you need a little!

G'day Shirley ~ Illness sure has its grip on so many this year. Hope all of you are up & bouncing around quickly, my friend.

You can send that white stuff my way ANY day ... I never tire of it. You captured it beautifully, tho.

Anxious to see your runner ...

I want to TY so much for your sweet note & prayers re my hubby's serious illness ... it means a lot to me. We are not out of the woods yet & face another surgical procedure shortly. Your support I appreciate so.

Have a beautiful day~

Hi Shirley!

Thanks for visiting my little spot on the web. I'm sorry to read that you are sick...seems it is going around everywhere!

I'll be back to check around your blog once I finish unpacking from my fun trip to FL, where I met up with Donna & Carol.

Take care & feel better soon,

Hi Shirley :) Goodness, so sorry to hear that you haven't been feeling well ~ I do hope you are feeling better very soon friend. I am so ready for winter to be over and Spring to finally make it's appearance! I'm anxious to be able to open up the windows and let the house air out from being shut up over the winter, and to feel the nice warm breeze :)

Warmest hugs, Brenda

Shirley I can relate. Hubby and I are finally getting over being sick with a cold. It seems we're on the same page as we too got our taxes all completed right when the cold hit us; cold and taxes, I'm seeing a connection here :-)

Spring is on the way!
