A Long 10 Days

The past 10 days have been very long and busy for our family. Monday, March 23rd, my brother, Kevin and I traveled to St. Louis for our Uncle Bill's funeral on Tuesday. The last time I saw him was at Uncle Al's funeral back in January. We were sitting at Aunt Ella's dining room table and he looks at me and say, "Is that husband of yours still a Cubs fan?" I told him "yes", to which he ask, "what are you going to do about that." "I think I will keep him" was my reply. Tuesday was a long day with a long drive home that evening in the pouring rain.

Me and Kevin -- my cousin Jessica on the side - Our next trip to St. Louis will be for her wedding.

Wednesday night was the clothing sale set-up. Thursday, Friday and Saturday was the clothing sale. In addition to the sale on Thursday our new couch was delivered! Here is Allie sitting on it.

Our old couch is still sitting in our living room. I have given Raymond a deadline of getting it out of my living room. I have 2 couches, 2 chairs and an ottoman in my living room as well as all the toys.

Also Thursday was the girls first soccer practice. Both girls did great. They are learning to play without using their hands. After the first break, Allie kept saying she needed to take a break every 3 minutes. I was really wet on the field but fun was had by all.

My best find at the clothing sale was a Dora playhouse. The girls LOVE it.
Sunday after church I took my mom back home and I can home on Monday. Tuesday I worked on getting my house back together again. It is still not back to normal but getting close. I am also looking forward to getting back to sewing and scrapbooking again. I have lots of projects that I want to do.
