Today would have been my MIL's 79th birthday.
She passed away 8 years ago. I loved this woman like she was my mother.
When I moved out of the house at 16 she would ask Wayne where I was at supper time.
When hubby and I eloped, she was so happy for us, she just said she wished she could have been there.
When I was giving birth to my children she phoned the hospital to make sure I was Ok.
When ever I wanted to spend time with her she was always there.
Cil loved her children and adored her grandchildren. She always had a junk food cupboard for the little ones.
Cil and I would talk for hours. I would visit her a couple times a week and we loved to go out for lunch and shop.
Cil and I loved to sit on the swing at camp talking as we watched my girls play on the beach.
I still miss her. I can't believe she has been out of our lives for 8 yrs.
On to some happier news........We are going to Minneapolis this weekend yahoo.
I went to the bank to exchange money. Just a tidbit for us Canadians, you get a better exchange rate if you exchange more then 1000.00.
I think I exchanged that amount for just me teehee.....I'm planning on buying lots of crafting goodies :)
I am soooo looking forward to this.
I went to CAA and bought my travel health insurance. Another tidbit...it is cheaper to get this at CAA as apposed to getting it at the bank.
I ran around all day today. My brother Darrell and I had some business with something concerning my dad. So we went for coffee after. Now I Hate coffee with a capitol "H". See I put a capital H just to prove it. So I had Coke, yup I did and it was soooo good.
Hope your Wednesday was a crafty one. I soooo wish mine was.
