Busy Busy

I have been really busy these past two days! I stayed all day at the hospital yesterday with my mother-in-law and my brother-in-law's girlfriend. Thank you for your prayers and their doing okay. No broken bones, but they are still in a lot of pain. They were stopped at a red light and someone ran into the back of them and pushed them 300 feet. They got to leave the hospital about 9:30 last night. They could barely move they were in so much pain. My brother-in-law's girlfriend kept complaining of a feeling like something was catching in her back every time she took in a breath.

I stayed up til 2:30 am cleaning and cooking, since I was at the hospital all day yesterday. And I got up and finished the cooking for my husband's Company Christmas Party that we attended today. I am really tired! I feel like going to sleep, but I really need to straighten the house. And I was getting my things together to go to a sewing class with one of my aunts, but she just called and canceled with me. A member of her church passed away. The next class won't be until after Christmas, I can't wait to attend. I think it would be so much fun!

I can sew a little, but my skills are rusty. The last time I used my sewing machine was the night before my wedding. I made both my maid of honor's dress and the flower girl's dress. I made the maid of honor dress about 3-4 months before the wedding, but ended up waiting till the very last minute, literally lol, to make the flower girl dress. And haven't used my sewing machine since. Sewing is a skill I'd like to sharpen and use at least a couple times a week. I would also like to learn embroidery and crocheting. My Great Granny has tried to teach me to crochet a few times, but she doesn't have the patience to teach! lol She always got too frustrated and would give up in only a couple of minutes. I wish I knew someone else who could crochet.
