Happy Housewife

I was a happy housewife today, I did all my Saturday cleaning, made egg salad for the girls for lunch.  That is a big deal because normally I don't "cook" for lunch.  I also made a finally the crust turned out apple pie.  It turned out because I used pillsbury pie crust. 
I sewed another Lollibag:

My sweet hubby took me out to dinner last night, on the way he said I have some bad news for you.  Well let me give you some background first....

 Hubby sells luxury motorhomes for a living, over the years we have met some wonderful people.  Made some great friends.  Sometimes when his customers are in town getting work done or looking at a new coach, we have them over for dinner.  Hubby is real sweet about it , he calls me and says don't worry we'll order pizza or get takeout.

I do get frantic thinking of having people over but by the end of the night, I'm so happy they came and it all works out.  They are all so nice and grateful that we had them over for some pizza!  
 Well a few weeks back we had just gone out to lunch with a couple, they had bought from hubby before, and they were back again, got the motorhome they really wanted, just right, sold their home, to go "full time".

They were real fun to talk to, had a great time at lunch a while back, so as were driving last night, hubby said so and so has terminal cancer..... 
I was just so sad, I felt like bursting into tears,  they are just going to enjoy their time together in the new motorhome.  I lost my appetite, I just said what's it all for??  Why are we here?  I mean I know those were sad , angry questions, but I am wondering how could this have happened to them, so nice, it's just not fair. 

I have had so many of my friends and friends family who have heard a cancer diagnosis this past year, it is scary.  Is it just because we are all getting older and this is what you deal with when you get older?  Or what is going on? 

I guess this is just life, we all have trials, no one is immune, just when and what will be your trial. 

It is a beautiful sunny day, you can wear your t-shirt, the kind of day that makes you want to go buy a ton of flowers and start planting.  It's been a good day.  And then I think there is someone out there not having a good day, who just lost a job, or got a divorce, or a dr. just told them they are dying.

Just call your parents, give your husband a hug, kiss your kids, take your dog on a walk, let people know you love them.  You really never know what day will be your last.  Be grateful.


  1. You are soooo right! Ya never know what or when something is going to happen. Thankfully our Father in Heaven is always there for us no matter what we face. I am going to kiss my husband, my kids, my sisters, my mother and tell them all I love them.
    And I love you too, my dearest and most sweetest friend.

  2. So glad I found you through Jessica. Love your blog!

  3. Found your blog thru Jessica. Love the bag you gave her! so cute. Going to check out your etsy store and I became a follower!! I can't agree with you more about the cancer. Funny I was just having that conversation with a friend of mine on the phone! seems everyone I know!

  4. Through a strange twist of fate, I saw your ruffled bag on Disney's blog and thought it was darling, so I clicked on the link, (dreaming of the day that I'll be able to sew, lol) and read your entry...about my dad. Thanks for your kind thoughts and words. It is a shock, but they are both in great spirits, and we are praying and remain hopeful that we will have more time together. I know that they both really enjoyed the time that they spent with you and your amazing family.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment! I love them and read every one!
