Hey moms and grandmas, come on out and play. It's recess time!
Wow, can it be? I came to the page and it had saved my log-in and didn't make me log-in...and took me directly to the post page when I clicked create a new topic. Holding my breath...I haven't clicked "post" yet so something could still re-direct me. But wouldn't it be wonderful if they've sorted out the log-in glitch??????
Today is grocery day, plus I have a coupon for Christopher & Banks so I think I'll go get me something pretty and springy, because I deserve it DH wants to be awakened at 11 so he can go be weighmaster for a few hours, so I decided to have leftover smoothie for breakfast (I always make too much, LOL!) and then make a nice brunch or lunch that we can eat together...then I'll go do my thing and he can do his thing. I already know what I'm fixing for supper, too. So, I'm having a relaxing/refreshing morning.
DD doesn't know it yet, but I'm crocheting her an owl. Actually, it's supposed to be an owl baby lovey thingie but hey, it's owl. Plus, with all that's going on, she really likes having something from me close, and she really likes something textured that she can hold. She has favorite squares in her afghan. The owl is an owl head, with a granny square mini blankie...so she should really love it. I'm sorry I didn't make it before she left, but in the future when she goes somewhere she can take it. (I did quickly crochet her a scarfy type thingie with texture, since her afghan is too big to take, LOL. But this will be better...since it's OWL!)
I woke up to this facebook message from dd. (Background...she wasn't tired yet last night so she was sitting in the hallway outside their room so she could talk to her BFF on the phone without waking up my dad and ds.)
"This girl just walked out of her hotel room, couldn't have been more than 18, and I was sitting on the floor on the phone because I couldn't sleep, both of her wrists were bleeding, she had cut pretty bad, said she wanted to die. Saw me and started running away, she was crying, she tripped, and just sat down on the floor and I sat down next to her... Rolled up my sleeves, showed her my scars. She put her head on my shoulder and cried.
I got her up and took her to the bathroom and got my first aid kit, stopped the bleeding, bandages her up and made her a cup of tea.
We talked for almost an hour and a half....
I don't know how old she is, I don't know where she's from, I don't even know her name, but she said I saved her life.
I really AM making a difference aren't I?
I feel so loved."
