Hi family!

I do apologize for being absent so much recently. We did have a few days away for some R&R. Before we left pregnant daughter, who is 6 1/2 months along, was on "modified bed rest". As of early this week she's on full bed rest. It's a full time job keeping her down as she's very stubborn. Plus I currently have the daytime care of a 4 y/o and 1 y/o along with taking older one to preschool. I barely know who I am let alone getting online to do much of anything.

I will do as much reading at night as I can and will try to post. In the meantime if anyone wants to help with the Koffee Klatch just post and let everyone else know. I won't be able to get to it until we can get some volunteer help from church...and hopefully it's soon. This grandma is way too old for this.

Just got little one down for nap, going to see what the older one is into now.

Welcome back but I just do not know how you manage it with the little ones, lol. The one I have keeps me plenty busy and oh can he wear this granny out, but it is fun. Take care of you too in the mix of things.

(((((((((Chutzie)))))))))))). I'm glad that you were able to at least get a few days R&R. You are so kind and caring, putting yourself out there to help out your daughter, when you already suffer so much. It sounds like you're the best mother/grandmother anyone could ever ask for! I pray that you have to strength and energy to keep up with the little ones!

     It is good to hear from you. I am terribly sorry your daughter is not doing well. I  hope she makes it to term alright. It must be very touch and go right now. I do hope you can get help soon.

     I can step back from Koffee Klatch so others can do it too.  Usually some really great ideas and topics come up  :-)  

    I hope you are doing okay and that you aren't in too much pain at the end of each day.  If there is anything I can do to help please let me know. There isn't much I can do, but I would like to help in any way that I can.

In one way I really envy you!  You are so lucky to be so close to your children and grandchildren!!  But in another way I feel soooooooooo very sorry for YOU!  It is tiring and I am sure that you get really worn out! But I think I am also just as sure that you really would not have it any other way!!! smilewinkgrin   Get some rest my friend and stay well!

You are all so sweet and kind to take time from your day to leave me a message. I have a river of tears pouring down my face right now...happy tears and some from exhaustion. But your notes boost my spirits. I am very tired and fading but just a bit longer and I hope we'll get more help.

Suzane...we went to the beach where it is peaceful and serene. It's a small town on the WA coast called Ocean City, Washington, USA. We stay in a membership type campground that's right on the beach. It rained like a cow peeing on a flat rock while we were there (oh, sorry if that old one offends anyone) but I love weather in general as long as it's not too hot and dry. We go to relax, read, work on hobbies and projects and basically enjoy each others' company in peace and quiet. We can spend a week or more holed up in the trailer in the middle of winter and never get tired of it or each other.

Thanks and I'll try to report in more frequently.
Loves to all!

Oh sounds like a perfect holiday Chutz. Just my kind of holiday. We are hoping to do just that for the Thanksgiving weekend. I am in Canada so that is Oct. 11. Hoping my hubby can get some time off so we can go. It is a beautiful campground and we would be right on the lake. I'll cross my fingers that we can go. I am so happy that you had that special time away. It sure helps your mind and spirit.

Post when you can my friend. We all love you and miss you when you are not here!

One day at a time!!
