The Week that Was

My son-in-law had hip replacement surgery last Tuesday and it went very well. Thank you for all your prayers!! He is recuperating at home, and home health is coming to the house for now to help with physical therapy.

I've had LMW a bit more than usual and he spent one night at Nanna's house. He knew something was fishy, but of course had no idea what was going on. Considering he was off his schedule and out of his element, he did wonderfully well.

My son, who works for the power company in a different town, was dispatched to the east coast to help restore power from Hurricane Irene. The plans were to be working in Maryland, but he wound up in New Jersey. He is en route back to Arkansas, but may be rerouted to Louisiana due to Tropical Storm Lee. I hope it doesn't do as much damage as predicted, and my boy can go home to his lovely wife who misses him very much.  Not to mention his Mom and Dad who would really like to see him!

I was able to finish a couple of crafty things you can check out on my Seam Rippers blog. I almost went on hiatus there, because I sometimes just get tired of maintaining two blogs, but decided against that and will continue with both. For now anyway. *grin*

My family and I have nothing planned for the Labor Day holiday, so I'm hoping to jump on one of the UFOs in my sewing room. I hope you all have a great three day weekend!!

I personally thank your son - he may not have come to my area, but so many from all over have come to help, I feel he needs a HUG of appreciation.

I'm glad that you son is coming back home. I hope to get some sewing done this weekend as well.

When we had a huge ice storm here that knocked out power for a very long time all over the KC area, I was very impressed with all the linemen that just poured in to help. He does deserve a big hug!
