Another day in...

Slept OK last night -- first time since Jeff's been gone. Got about 6 hours sleep, which is actually typical for me. I got up at 6am with great intentions of spending the day in my quilt room, but while cleaning up the kitchen and doing email, I received a call from my SIL and need to go pick him up at work and give him a ride home -- since he's been laid off. Sigh... No comment on that one is the safest comment to make at this point... So instead of spending the day quilting, I will pick SIL up, bring him home, and head to out to the Joann fabric store in Hamilton and pick up the quilt backing fabric I need to finish several quilts. Just plain off-white or muslin will be fine for the projects I need to finish. I feel so bad for my daughter, though at some point this is going to get old, I suppose. I know she was just starting to get ahead financially, and now he's out of work - again. She so deserves some peace and stability in her life -- but only she can decide if and when that is ever going to happen. Being mom to adult kids is a thousand times harder than being mom to small children. Even shaking my "mom finger" at her does no good -- or actually isn't even allowed anymore! She's a smart girl, she's fiercely indepedent, and she will do what is best for her and her son... Our opinions may differ on how she should do this, but it's her and only her decision to make.

Sorry to hear about this. Being a mom to adult kids shouldn't be a thousand times harder! She will be the one to decide if she wants the peace and stability -
