{ We're Home }

Just a quick update.

My husband and I finally got home early Sunday morning after a three week trip to California. Sadly my Mother-In-Law passed away two weeks ago. Considering all that is going on everyone is doing okay right now. The worst I think will be his little brother who doesn't really understand what has happened yet. Thank you all so much for your prayers during this time... as strange as it may sound there has been peace and comfort to the believers in the family.

I've been busy today trying to clean up three weeks of cat hair! I think a combination of cat stress, shedding season and the fact that I haven't vacuumed or dusted in three weeks are all to blame. I've never seen so much cat hair in my house! I still have a bunch of stuff to unpack and I go back to work tomorrow, well not "go back" as I work from home, but I have to resume my normal responsibilities starting tomorrow. My Uncle was kind enough to give me today off to try and get the house in order even though they leave in two days for vacation.

I probably won't get to stamp too much this week since I still have a bunch of things to get settled now that I'm home. I'm also in the mood to paint and I have lots of painting around the house to do so I think I'm going to take advantage of that while I can. I'm sure I'll be back to my normal routine by next week though.

Thanks again for all your support and prayers!

Yuck! I hate painting! hehehe... that's why I want to take advantage while I'm in the mood! I just finished the walls of the hall today (not a big accomplishment as it's not really a hall). Still have to do the trim and one of the doors. I also have a closet door and our dining room that is half done. I hope the mood lasts cuz I have a lot to do!

I know we don't know each other, but I've been watching your blog since you posted about your MIL, and have been concerned about what has been going on. I understand the peace you are experiencing, and am thankful for the comfort that God provides during these difficult times. Just wanted you to know that others out here in blogland care...go easy on yourself as you try to get back into the routine!

After chatting with you a bit on SCS today I checked out your blog for the first time... so sorry about your MIL, you and you're family will be in my thoughts and prayers. I lost my MIL back in September... we still miss her very much but know she's at peace know and that gives us comfort.

I've checked out some of your cards... wow! You are one talented little lady! :) And after talking today I had a feeling our tastes ran about the same, looks like I was right!
