These made me smile...


So, of course, I had to have them! I found these 2 nightgowns at the Family Dollar store, and couldn't pass them up! Too cute AND only $6.99 each. They just made me happy! I came home and tried them on and now, I can't wait for cool weather! LOL---it was 52 degrees at home Monday night, so, it won't be long.

I went to the bank and got a cashiers check to send to the Care Center. I figured it would be out of the account before the end of Ausust for sure that way, and the state will be happy that MIL only has $39.02 in her checking account. How sad.... I am sick that the little bit she got from the property 'after the loan was paid off, she had $6812.56 left' went to pay PART of her bill at the Care Center. It's only about 1/2 what she owes----for only about 2 months. And, then, the 'care' or lack of care put her in the hospital for 3 1/2 days because she was near death from dehydration, etc. I sure thought about keeping some of that money out for gas, but, was afraid to even do that! .....it is done.

Hubby is home, time for supper...the neighbor girl gave us a small dish of some kind of Mexican pasta....interesting!

hi Mz. Sherry B. Love the nightgown. Gosh I haven't got to shop for anything in so long. It's horrible to be so flat broke. I love that picture of a shawl. Would love the pattern. Could you copy it and mail it to me? I am into making shawls now. Mostly prayer shawls to give to those in need. It's so pretty and I'm always interested in a good pattern. It is crochet, right? Praying you get it all settled and lined out with your MIL. Surely with her property sold and no assests the state will allow medicaide now. Love and ~hugs~

Thanks for the urls, That moebeius shawl is pretty, not sure I could do it though. I have a hard time with some written directions. If I'm showed I pick it right up. lol.. Love the idea of sharing patterns though. Do you still have my mailing address? You need to post girlfriend. But you may be heading home, from your last email. Love and ~hugs~ Have a great holiday week-end.
