In Overdrive

Well, good early morning to all. I'm starting my day with a few reflections of the weekend as it's coming to a close and getting ready for the beginning of the already busy scheduled week. Why does it seem that we are always in fast gear forward? I'm so ready for a slow down. Sounds like something I've heard Mr. Bentley say in one of his country songs. Guess he knows what I'm talking about. 

I have a busy week coming up. In addition to my normal work load, dealing will all the changes happening to our nations great diagnosis coding system that goes live Oct 1st...the combination alone might make me pull my hair completely out...ughughugh!! I also have a personal sadness to add to my stress.
Sadly we will lay to rest someone who has been a part of my life, most of my life, but who I know is in a much better place. Yes he lived a long life. Yes God has ended any suffering. Yes he will be missed. It's still a sadness and a stressor all the same. You'll always be in my heart and I will always call you Grandpa. Rest in peace.

Now onto happier thoughts! A family dear to mine, welcomed a new baby this week - Karoline Leigh! 7 lbs 12 oz  20 1/2 inches long. She too is part of a huge UGA Dawg loving family. And I think she was our lucky charm this year against those SC Gamecocks!  By the way Spurrier...How 'bout the Dawgs and how do you like us now!! What a Game! Can I get a Woof! Woof!
You know I've always heard that when God takes someone we love he sends us someone else to love, fill the space and ease the pain. I truly believe he works his miracles daily. 

Both my sons have gone nonstop this weekend so there's been very little rest for me. The oldest working all weekend and going to a co-worker's wedding, which I understand was beautiful. It was in a historical park in Savannah, GA and southern in style, but different at the same time. Congrats to Paige and Sam! The youngest just doing his social thang and needing to be taxi'd around leaves little time for much else. So in between all my dashing and dodging I have been working on a few craft things but have not done much in completing any of them. They currently are works in progress but should be up for show soon. 

However I do have one to show that I helped my friend make for her daughter's birthday and I think we did a pretty good job. Again Sil (Silhouette Cameo) came to the rescue. Hard to believe she sat for so long and intimidated me. She is worth her weight in gold. Take a look and see for yourself.
