I am still here!!!!

I know it has been almost 2 months since my last post!  I have excuses that are so-so!
1. I hate to post without pictures!  My camera broke...ugh!
You can tell by the pictures in my last post!  I have since bought a new one but haven't had the time to learn how to use it!!!  I am sure Lilli will be able to show me!!!
2. We gutted Lilli's room and I do mean gutted it...what work especially in the awful heat!  Heat indexes averaged 105-110 degrees all week!  UGH!!!
Painted from the ceiling to the baseboard, tore out the carpet which we(Lilli and I) quickly learned how to take up tack strips and staples from the hardwood floor without damaging it!  Then we learned how to revive the already gorgeous wood with lots more elbow grease!  The room, if I do say so myself, turned out gorgeous!!!
Hoping for pictures soon!  Where was John through all of this, you might be asking....working!  Yes working in a factory with a horrible tempature of over 110 degrees.  They have fans but that just moves the hot air around.  On days he worked in the weld shop his protective gear made even that much hotter!  There was no way I could ever ask him or my dad to help us!!!  So when someone comes and they look at Lilli's room it makes it all that much nicer to say, we did it all by ourselves!!!
3.  Gayle turned 30!  Yes, I know, 30!  Ugh...I still say she's my baby!  When you look at Gayle she looks the same as the day she turned 18!  I am so happy that through all her trials she has made this far and she is still so happy and always wants you to be happy and smiling!!!
4. And finally, today I had to turn Gayle's 2 year report in!  Lots of typing and filing goes along with that!
So now as soon as Lilli turns 14 on August 29 and my aunt and uncle come for a visit, I am hoping that I will be able to post and actually have pictures!
So for now I am really enjoying everyone else's blogs!  I have even followed a ton of new ones!  So thanks to all of the bloggers out there for keeping me inspired and excited to get back to creating!
Before I forget, for those of you who have been reading me for sometime you know I have always wanted to learn to quilt, I have joined the wantabe quilter giveaway(button on my sidebar) over at Sew We Quilt! I can't tell you how fun it is and how much I am learning!  Here's to hoping someday you will actually see a finished quilt on here!

Wherever you are Whatever you are doing I hope you are having a wonderfully happy day!
