Is is possible to choke your child when they are on the other side of the world??? LOL! Just playing around but I really could choke him if her were here right now!!! LOL! You all know how nervous that I have been for months over this trip, right??? Well....we took him to Cincinnati OH to the airport and he called when he landed in Philadelphia, but I have NOT heard a word from him since then!!!!!
From PA he flew to GERMANY and on to ROME, so the last time that I talked to him was around 2pm on Friday! Now, I know he is fine because I am tracking what he is spending with his debt card, and trust me, he is EATING WELL!! LOL!
He wanted to take his cell phone and I decided against it because I knew that if he had his phone that I would call him constantly and ruin his trip! Funny that I know myself that well, right? So I got him a phone card through the tour company and a lot of the other kids had the same thing. I figured at least he could call with that, but he hasn't!!!! Like, I said, I know he is fine but I would like to hear his voice. Richard says that he is just a 17yr old boy that is having the time of his life and we are the last thing on him mind!!! Which I'm sure that is what is going on.
Lexie was here yesterday! We had a wonderful day! She spent a few hours home with me and Hunter while Richard went and picked up a load of hay. It was very nice to have the extra "girl" time with her. After Richard got back, he took Lexie and Hunter out walking in the woods! They were gone for several hours and walked several miles. By the time they got home I had the BBQ ribs finished and supper was ready.
To keep me busy yesterday, I worked on this new BOM. It is a gift from Richard for my birthday. I really wanted to do it and when you sign up for it, you get the blocks quarterly. This is the first one, it is called "WEE RIVER OTTER"
It has a ton of pieces in it but I do like it. My next one is a WEE BLUE HERON, can't wait to start it but after this first one, I'm just not up to doing the heron today. This BOM is from Silver Linings Originals
You should really check out the website, if you like paper piecing, they have some beautiful patterns and they are very detailed.
*******I'm back....Andrew just posted on his facebook that he couldn't get the phone card to work!!!! LOL!!! Oh and he said that he was having a wonderful time and that he needed CASH!!!!!
