A Crazy Week

It is hard to believe it finally Friday! It has been stress filled week for me. My mom had a triple by pass AND a heart valve replaced on Tuesday. The surgery took 6 hours but I did have some to divert my attention. Devin was sworn into the Army that same morning so I spent part of the time at the swearing in ceremony. It was a sad/happy occasion for me. I was sad to see him go but happy that he is doing something that he wants to be doing. I was worried I would fall completely apart but I managed not to become a pile of mush. :) I did get teary eyed as I gave him hugs good bye.

Devin saying good bye to his baby sister.

As for my mom, she is recovering from surgery pretty good. She is extremely sore but is up and moving around slowly. :)

Also this week was parent teacher conferences for the girls. Krissy has a GPA of 4.125. She is taking 3 Honors classes this year. She had a total of 6 A's and 2 B's. :) Allie has a GPA of 3.875. She is also taking 2 Honors classes. She had a total of 5 A's and 3 B's. :) I am extremely proud of both girls!!

With everything going on this week I haven't been able to stitch much. :( I have decided to focus on Mike's Christmas stocking until I get it finished. I am only about 25% done so I really need to get my rear in gear and get it finished!

Have a great weekend!!
