Rest Well Alice

We got the phone call yesterday that we have been dreading yet all the while knew it was coming. My mother-in-law passed away in her sleep. She had been fighting cancer in the kidneys, lungs, and in her bones. Her funeral is being held on Monday so we have been scrambling around trying to get everything ready to make the 9-10 hour trip. We will be leaving around 5:00 am and hopefully we will arrive around 2:00 pm.

My MIL passing yesterday was the worst thing that happened but overall it was just a horrible day. It didn't start out looking good either. When we woke up we discovered my puppy dog had broke her tail. We are still trying to figure out how exactly she did it! So by 7:30 am I was on the phone with the vet. She is doing a lot better today. My friend is going to puppy-sit her for me until we get back next weekend. The other bad thing is since we have to leave tomorrow that means Renee's visit is being cut short.

I didn't get a lot of stitching done this week but I did manage to get some time in on Deepest Love. I am definitely taking some stitching with me I just haven't decided on what to take with me.
