Have A Happy Weekend!

Have a great weekend everyone. Stay dry. It is suppose to rain the entire weekend. :P Anyways, It has been a very long week. I am just glad it is over and now I can play. I said that this weekend I am not cleaning or watch movies. I am going to play in my craft room. I am getting caught up on cards, scrapbooking layouts for when I go away on my retreat. Which I can't wait. I think that later we will go play in the rain. We got our muck boots ready to go and were going to go play in the rain.... doesn't that sound fun!

My Thank You!

I made two cards. One for my staff at Hamden Healthcare and the other for one of my patients family members at work. I reassure her everyday when she comes in to take care of Mom. She is finally getting it that she is a different mom inflicted with a terrible disease and her personality is going to change daily and the education we teach her about Alzheimer's will hopefully help the dgtr with dealing and coping and understanding the changes in Mom. Even though she will always be Mom I want to thank you.
