I am caught in a whirlwind.............


I'm on a roller coaster ride and I can't get off, I knew it was coming but, I didn't know it would be like this........ Mother was admitted to the Hospital last Saturday, just as we were getting ready for the Couples Shower for Adam and Katie. She has aspiration pneumonia (what is that??) and a serious UTI...... Bless her heart she just can't catch a break. I have been at the hospital all week. And feverishly trying to find a nurse to care for her in her home. Just can't do this rehab facility thing anymore. I am convinced if you stay there long enough they will kill you!!!!!!!!!!
I have been stuffing and assembling the invitations getting them ready to mail next week........ My dresses are here and I need to go for a fitting........Mainly to see if I like them now that they are here and not size 8 or if I need to head to the fabric store to construct a tent....... I have had mothers car for sale and finally sold it Thursday, and my son has bought a house....... Oh dear, that means window treatments, rugs, furniture, oh and we have to paint. Does anyone know how to clone yourself???? Cause I need to be in about 8 places at one time........ I don't think I have enough Tequila for this........ Oh, and did I mention it is almost time for TEXAS, yes as if I don't have anything else to do, I think I'm jumping on a plane for the Round Top Shows in about .......oh, 20 days...........Please help me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Losing my Mind, Lauri

Sorry to hear about your Mom. Stopped by the Woodstock Flea Market yesterday looking for your booth. I had bought the heart necklace from you in August (you changed out the heart for me). Love your jewelry and want to get another necklace next time you are in town. I have a store in Woodstock and love great & unique jewelry pieces. I hope the best for your Mom....been thru that myself with my family.

Breathe. Sit down. Breathe again. Make a drink. Breathe again. Make another. Breathe again. Now say "#*@! it" to most of the things on your agenda. That sad thing is that if you don't slow down, you won't have enjoyed this joyous event like you should have! Find someone for your mom and then spend some time on YOU getting ready for the wedding. Their house is for them to fix up! Breathe!

Yikes, my friend! I'm tired just thinking about what's on your plate! Prayers continue for your sweet mom. Just hang in, somehow we always manage to get it all done and this time will be no exception! I was worried you were going to end by saying your Texas trip was cancelled....understand....them would be fightin' words! kisses!

Ah my sweet honey baked ham...are you having a come apart yet? You are trying to wear way too many hats!
I totally understand about your mother...went through the same thing with rehab with mine several years ago. She hated it and we did too. I hope you're able to find someone capable and soon!
I am so excited that you're coming. We going to get to talk foreign languages together again!
You are going to be the most beautful mother of the groom ever!

I wish I had a solution for you but I'm caught in my own whirlpool of activities. LOL. You will get all that you need to accomplish...accomplished.

GOOD GOD WOMAN ARE YOU SERVING CHEESE WITH ALL THAT WHINE?! JUST PUT ON YOUR BIG GIRL PANTIES AND GET THE JOB DONE! ON A SERIOUS NOTE THERE SHOULD BE SOMEONE OUT THERE WHO IS QUALIFIED TO HELP YOUR MOTHER.
ON THE LIGHTER SIDE--WHAT ABOUT ME? YOU FAILED TO SHOW AT WOODSTOCK MARKET (I SWEAR I HEARD BANJO MUSIC) AND I HAD TO WITNESS A BLACK MAN DEMONSTRATING HIS BRAND OF FEMININE NAPKINS AGAINST THE LEADING BRAND. I THOUGHT THEY BOTH WORKED WELL, BUT WHAT DO I KNOW? NEEDLESS TO SAY THAT LISA ALMOST HAD A STROKE WHEN SHE DISCOVERED WHAT WAS GOING ON (THE BLACK MAN JUST SHOWED UP AND SET UP A TABLE AND COMMENCED TO DEMONSTRATING!) I WILL GIVE THE SHOW AN A+ FOR HUMAN DRAMA, BUT AN F FOR SALES. THE SHOW WAS SO BAD THAT I WILL BE AS HARD TO FIND AS THAT BLACK GUY TRYING TO SHOW TO GIRLS HOW TO HAVE A HAPPY PERIOD!

Lauri, an aspiration pneumonia is an infection caused by food particles going into the lungs. Can be caused by choking on food, usually when someone has difficulty swallowing, for example, after a stroke. She should have her swallow evaluated and be put on an appropriate diet if she is having swallowing difficulties, for example, pureed foods only. I assume she's getting all of this looked into at the hospital. Hope things get sorted out for you before you come to Texas. I'm coming on the 25th and 26th, all the way from Montreal, so I may see you there! Look for me, I'm going to have a white ruffled tote bag with a badge that says Zita - Mlle Magpie :)
