Darin(son) is doing great, got a full time job at pep boys and loves working on cars!  He's a freaking genious with cars.  He talks about how they work about fixing them and what to look for like he been working on them since birth and honestly it's only been since he started taking classes at college.  I always knew that he would do something that required him to fix things.  And he loves it! Talks about buying an old car and making it a project car.  Can't wait to see him do that!  He really wants a nova, but any old classic car will do.  

He is still going to college working on his associates.  It's taking some time cuz he is only taking 2 and 3 classes at a time, but it down to his last 15 credits to get it. He is thinking about getting his bachelors but we will see.  Just the fact that he is wanting to finish the associates its tremendous to me!  He has done more than Frank and I and half my family.  Could not be prouder.  

August 16th he turns 21!  21 is amazing to me!  Can i be that old????? I been told i don't look like i have kids that age!  Even tho this old body tells me different!  

Amber (daughter) is doing well also.  I have to say that Amber decided after her first semester of college that it was not something that she wants to do at this moment...she can always go back.

She got a job babysitting and as of Thursday she started a new job working in a daycare!  Yes!  I called what my daughter would be doing with her life also!  I always knew that she would be working with kids, I figured she would work in a daycare or something like that!  So far she loves it!  I've always been told since kindergarten from the teachers that Amber is very motherly!  I already knew that! duh! 

She is saving to buy her own car, which will be great not having to share the one vehicle that we have.  

Frank(hubby) he is doing good.  He  hates working midnights, you would think after almost 3 years that he would be used to it, but no, he is a day person and every chance he gets he messes up his internal clock and puts his self back on morning on his days off.  I wish they would put him back on mornings.  Do us all a favor!!  lol  He's happy that he got his review and will be getting a raise...that will help tremendously!!

Me well, I've had some ups and downs.  Had a problem at work that took me off the job that i hated with a passion!!  Thank god!!  supposedly this is my punishment, but to me it was an answer to a long time prayer!  Even my coworkers say that i am a much happier person lately!!! Won't get into detail because it could get me in trouble if ever it's leaked onto the media dealing with the job...Just know that my mental status is in a much better place!!!  

May 1st will be 3 years since i had the surgery!! I have gained a few pounds but nothing that i am going to stress over...of course i'm working hard to correct that problem...i know i will!!  i know what i have to do to get back to where i was..
But for the most part i am extremely happy with myself!  

We still have Amber's best friend Kayla over every other weekend and enjoy spending time with her and her son Spencer!  They both brighten my day!  Spencer is a the cutest thing ever and i adore him! It's like having a grandbaby!  I know the real thing will come in  time but for now we enjoy the company!  

Well peeps I think i have caught up a bit..i always say that i will get on here more, i always have good intentions!!!  

Take care, that is anyone still reads this

Amber's party

June 7th Amber had her graduation party!  It was a total success!  Lots of people came, had lots of fun, we even had a bounce house that i thought was going to be a waste of money, but honestly it was the best part of the party...Everyone was in it and had a ball!!  So Proud of her!!  

 This was the set up...before guests arrived...

 guests arriving!!

I couldn't of been happier with the turn out...everyone that i wanted there was there!!!  

June 8th was my birthday, I turned 44!  It was also clean up day...I had a relaxing day, after everything was neatly put away...

Little of this and that!

Got a few things to update ya on...1.  This is my new vehicle...2011 chevy traverse and I love it...It's getting a new radio tomorrow because for some reason the one in it keeps jumping to auxillary input device...So that got ordered today and installed tomorrow..  It drives like a dream.  Never going back to a small car...What was i thinking!!!
 2.  I was feeling cute on this the new me!!  This was the real me trapped inside the whole time!!!  Doing everything i can to keep it that way!!!
 3.  This month was really hard on me...I went into a deep depression at the start of the month and I couldn't figure out why...Friends at work and online kept saying what is wrong with you.."you seem distant, not yourself".  Well it took me a few days to figure out that around May is when mom went down hill.  May 1st her doctor put her in the hospital  and it was her and my fathers wedding anniversary.  May 2nd they found out she had 5  blockages to the heart. May 5th she had triple bypass surgery and the 7th was her 65th birthday and then of course it was Mother's day!  So I think subconsciously I put my myself into a deep depression...But now that i am realizing it I think things are better...But it still going to be a hard couple months for me...because as of June 22nd will mark the day that she stopped breathing on her own and then July 2nd will mark her third year that she is no longer with us.  D.E.P.R.E.S.S.I.N.G.!!!

There is not a day that I don't miss her.  Wishing she was still her for her guidance..Amber is graduating soon and really hate the fact that she missed both kids walking the stage for their diplomas...Of course I know she was there and will be there for Amber too.  But still not the same!!

This picture is of my mom when she graduated high school!!!  She was so beautiful!!!  I so wished her life was better than it had turned out...She deserved it!!  But she chose the hard and rocky path, but her gain was her children and her grandchildren!   She would be so proud of her grand kids...Darin working on his 3rd year of college starting in August.  Darin also got a letter from College stating that he is on the Deans list for 2013!!!  So very pround of my boy!!!...Amber choosing to be a nurse..

.Her other grandchildren doing so well in school. Sarah, is doing great in school and is now going to be in marching band...She is so very talented with her coronet!!  I got the opportunity to watch her and her 2 other band mates play for regionals and was accepted into states and won!!!  And her grandson Matthew is doing very well with his grades also, is is a wiz on the computer!!  I know mom is looking down and is very proud!!

 This picture is the hanging basket my daughter Amber got me for Mother's day :)
 This picture was of my mother and father and me!!!  leaving the hospital.   Just some throw backs that touch my heart!
 This is the other gift from my wonderful daughter for mother's day :)
 Darin got me this for mother's day...ya, i'm a little spoiled :)   He says he's getting me something else but it has to wait.....He don't have to give me nothing but his love....Love my kids!!  They are my rock!! The reason i keep going!!
No post will do without showing off my little Spencer.  He's so smart!! Ok  This link is of Spencer knowing his body parts!!  such a cute video!!!

Hope you enjoy...And I hope that everyone Had a fantastic Mother's Day!!!

A quick note!!

Hey there peeps...I realize ya'll have prolly stopped reading this...And I can't say that I don't blame
But believe it or not I still drop by :)....Stupid facebook is just so much easier to keep up..

Time just slips on past...Can you believe my baby girl is graduating in just a couple weeks???? No?  neither can I!!!!  We set the date for her party it's going to be June 7th!  I'm hoping it's a big success like her brother Darin's!

I'm so proud of Amber, her grades this year have been excellent!!  She really has shown that she is serious about what she wants to be...I enrolled her in college which if you asked me last year i was not going to do!!  Because she wasn't bringing me the grades i wanted to see.  But she has decided that she wants to be a nurse, and wants to either work with babies or in hospice she says...I'm so proud...I had figured her to work with kids....always have...She is a caring soul!  And since kindergarten every teacher has said she is very i can see her doing either one of those.

We still see our little Spencer!  I love that kid!! I hope that we will always have some kind of contact with him...He's almost 2 now and he's been apart of our lives since before birth!!!

Ok i would post some more pics of Spencer, but stupid blogger won't let me cuz i didn't do it all at one time...

In other news
I finally paid off the cruise i had crashed up...Went out a week later and purchased a 2011 Chevy Traverse!!  I'm in love with it!!  I never want a little car ever again!! lol  I wold post pics of that also, but it will have to wait till the next post because i did not do it all at once...I would have thought blogger would have been

Well i'm off to crash for the night...Take care everyone...

Another satisfied customer

My Jaycee asked me to make her a blanket to keep her warm in those frigid temps in northern Michigan!  You ask and you receive my Jay!  She is pure country and wanted a camo looking blanket!  i made it a little girlie with the ruffled edge.  

                                                   I put it on my bed just to see what it was going to look like.
When I went to post office it was a Friday, they said it should arrive on Tuesday.  It arrived the very next day!!  Saturday!   Impressive!!  She was excited!

I am now working on another blanket for her brother.  He wanted Teal and Black...I'm really liking how it is turning out!  Cant wait to show you all...of course it's gonna take me awhile because of the size...but i might finish it before end of

Then after that blanket i have one more to make for the family.  Not sure on the colors for that one because that's still down the road....  Then i had another request...

Well take care folks!!
