i was hoping life might slow down a bit after fischer started school full time this week, but so far it hasn't. i wrote a great to do list on monday knowing i'd have one less child to distract me, i had high hopes of finding time to paint, but then the unexpected happened and all things planned went to the wayside.
monday my husband found his mom unresponsive at her house, thankfully she is doing much better and should be out of the hospital tomorrow or friday. this of course happened just as i was on the verge of canning my salsa and i had just bought 4 quarts of raspberries from an Amish friend to make into jam and had just cut broccoli from our garden to freeze and was drying herbs, in addition to at least 4 loads of laundry on the line! all of this seemed so important at the time, but guess what, it really wasn't. when things like this happens it always puts a little perspective on life and you realize what is really important. i eventually got my salsa canned and my jammed made, laundry off the line, i still haven't found time to paint, but that will come. my to do list hasn't become any smaller, in fact it has grown, but that's ok, there's always next week and we're thankful that next week will have "grandma" in it.
