So … what ‘cha working on?

Oh where, oh where, has dear Lani been?  Let me tell you, life has been family crazy this last month.  A very long story made short, my sweet mother-in-law, who has lived with us for the last couple of years, became quite ill the end of January.  Let’s just say in four short weeks, we were in ER with her four times (you know it’s bad when the ER doctors are on a first name basis with you and actually remember all of mom’s diagnosis from previous visits) and the rest of the time has been spent at a rehab home, with the exception of one weekend when she was discharged to come home on a Friday, only to go back to ER on Monday morning.  She’s doing a bit better, and still at the rehab home, which is where she will now probably have to stay.  She’s a strong, strong lady, with a bit of a stubborn streak … definitely a fighter!

Back to the fun stuff … it’s WIP WEDNESDAY week AND you’ll want to keep reading down towards the bottom for a fun giveaway!
