About Me

I have been happily married for 40 years. My husband retired from GM after working there for 36 years. He is now working part-time at a local GM dealership as a shuttle driver. It is the perfect job for him. He doesn't mind driving and for sure he doesn't mind talking. I have enjoyed rubber stamping for about 10 years. I can tell you that I do not do scrapbooking just cardmaking. I love it. I retired from the University of Michigan in 1997 after working there for 30 years. Most of the time I worked in the Mathematics Dept. At this point, you can say I wonder how she liked it. My mom told me if I couldn't say something nice to someone don't say anything at all. I will comply and not go into a huge dissertation about how awful my bosses were during that period. I did like my office mate, Dee Hudock. We worked very well together. I can also say for the most part I liked the professors. I have two grown children and 3 grandchildren. I am totally addicted to FB and all the games I play there.

I had my card club here at home last night. We did our card swap and a couple of us had difficulty with the sketch challenge but we managed. My friend Gail interpretated the sketch differently but I really liked how her cards turned out. She is so funny. She asks her husband how they look - that is her first mistake - never as DH about a card you have made. They generally don't care.

We learned to braid paper strips. Well, at least some of us did. I had a hard time but with it but with practice I could get it learned enough to actually use it on a card. Once I learn how to do a straight line with no wrong moves, I will attempt to make a corner. It really didn't take long to do the demo so we sat and talked. It was so good to have some time with my BFF's. I have had some emotional days this week and it was worth while to share and allow us to vent even if it was just to each other. I found out that several of us have basically the same issues with our adult children. We came to the conclusion that there is very little we can do to change things. We have to accept that the way we raised our kids was basically the same. The reason that things happen are the poor choices they are making.

It is time for me to get dressed (11:30 AM) and work on some cards. I wonder sometimes how I ever had time to work, because I can kill 4 hours and show very little for my effort.
