still here.

Well, things have been busy. I don't think I mentioned it, but I was in a car wreck on Thursday, the very day my mother came in, I was on my way to the airport to pick her up and I was going through a green light and the guy coming towards me making a left hand turn turned right into me. Whammmo! Barely had my licence 3 months, and my first car accident!!! Thank goodness we have some great insurence through my husbands job, and stuff. I was able to get a rental car the very next morning, and yes, I was able to get a ride to the airport to get my mom.
And to think I waited all this time, I just turned 28 to get my license because I was so afraid to get hit, and here-I get hit! But! I thought it would totally freak me out and make me not want to drive, and I couldn't wait to get my rental car and keep on going! There are so many idiots out there! And wouldn't you know? the first day I got the rental car,(the very day after my car accident) I was coming home from work and missed getting hit again by just inches by someone who ran a stop sign!
Anyway, I am enjoying my visit with mom so much! Her and I were best friends as I was growing up and then we sorta grew apart, as I got older and I sorta got my own friends and went away to college, but now that I am married and am on my own, we have grown so close again! My hubby and my dad are so much alike it's comical, and we are always sharing stories about our men! I mean we stay up and just laugh, and have such a good time.
However, with all this fun of hanging out with mom I have not had much of a chance to stitch at all. I think I put maybe 20 stitches in as I was waiting for her to get ready for us to go to breakfast, the other day but other than that none at all, and I have hardly read any blogs either, because everytime I start to, she will come in and we start chatting again. Oh well, it's no big deal. I will just have to catch up when I get back from Cali.
Well, I will return soon. Just going on a little trip. and I hope to have a photo of Nov. Quilt when I get home, my mom took a pic of it with her digi cam, but she doesn't have the connection cable with her to print it out, so I have to wait unitl I get to her house and then maybe I can put it on here.
Happy Fourth of July! I hope you all have a beautiful, safe holiday!

Sorry to hear about your accident - but glad you're OK :) My Mum and I are the same ... we never get bored chatting away - although Mum doesn't like me spending half the night on the computer while she's here, so it affects blogging time ... she loves it when I stitch, though ;) Enjoy your time with your Mum :D
