Memorial Day Weekend Give Away

With this being the unofficial first weekend of summer please take a moment to remember the men and women who gave all for the freedom we have.

This weekend is always hard for me to get through. For those of you who don't know, a good friend of mine was KIA in 2002 by a suicide bomber. He was able to get his 13 men out. He died doing what he loved and what he believed in. He was in the Army's Special Forces, Green Beret, with 22 years of service.

So here is the give away part! Leave a comment here with what your Memorial Day weekend plans are, you have until 11:59pm on Monday. I will be giving away a Red, White and Blue pillow made by me. Last year was the Tattered Stars and Stripes pillow.

My plans are surviving the weekend. I need to reboil some jelly, it hasn't gelled. Bind and deliver 2 baby quilts. Whip up a batch of salsa. Oh and I have to work all weekend.

What a Day!!!

Like my life isn't crazy enough, my day has been insane!

I have lots going on. But here is just a small highlight, I have had a blinding headache all afternoon. I am not sure if it is the 5 hours of sleep, overdose or lack of caffeine or the wind killing my allergies. So I take 3 little white pills from Mexico and a Diet Pepsi. This only took off a small edge. I found some Allegra and took one of those too.

Tonight I had to go out to run a quick errand. I was talking on my phone when I pulled into the drive way, THANK GOD!!! I turned off the car, tossed my keys in my purse, grab some garbage and shut the door. In this time Delaney got out of the car too. I hear CLICK! I told my mom "I have to go now, I need to call AAA I just locked Daphne in the car." Of course I was driving the HHR that does not have OnStar!

My call was marked High Priority. They called out a Tow Truck and the Fire Department. Of course the tow truck got their first. It took him 10 seconds to get my doors opened. The Driver said "The Fire Department was called too. Where are they?" Me "Starbucks." He laughed and agreed.

For those of you who don't know, last week Stockton Police handed out 48 pink slips and some demotion notices. While the Fire Department is taking NO CUTS. And speaking of Stockton Fire Department they are currently 6 MILLION dollars over budget and are asking for more money to make it to the end of the year. Really can't they show up for a 7 month old locked in a car?

Daphne is perfectly fine and did not cry through the whole experience.
