    WOW it seems like forever that I was on here.

    My dad got really sick and I spent several days in the hospital with him, then I had to try to get ready to leave for my son's wedding in CA. well, I got really sick and tried to work, but I could not even do that, I went home sick last Monday and Tuesday, and we had to go to my sisters on Tuesday to fly early on Wednesday. OH Heavens, have you flown when you are sick and feel like poo? WOW I thought my head and ears were going to explode.

    We got yo CA and my son got us, took us to the hotel, then to get the car and I went back to the hotel and wanted to die. I slept for days. (not what you want to do on vacation :GAAH: ).

    Well while we were gone two of my does kidded and had twins both did.

    I was able to get up and take my daughter in law to the store to purchase things for the wedding, poor girl her family would not help one bit with this, if I had not gone and helped her she would not of even had a bouquet. I bought a bunch of flowers and made her and her Brides maid a bouquet.

    The wedding was very simple but very beautiful, and I have a beautiful Daughter in law. She was shocked when I told her I was paying for everything. She wanted a unity candle and so we went looking for one she liked. Her own mother showed up about 20 minutes before the wedding started and that was it. My daughter and I got all the bouquets done, then went to the place to decorate. I bought a few things, it was simple but beautiful like I said.

    To top it all off. Her parents are divorced (ok, no big deal), but do you think they could purchase them a wedding gift? No! the only gifts that were brought to this was the 7 that we brought and the one from his best man. Poor kids, just starting out, and they have nothing. I did get up one day and made them my sons favorite dinner, but in order to do that I had to wrap the electric skillet and have them unwrap it so I could use it. (I know tacky but hey they got it).

    SO, that is why I have not been around muck, and I am still so sick.
