Interesting week is all I can say

It has been a while since I posted on here!  I know..I know...I am a horrible blogger but sometimes life does get in the way.  So, since I last posted several things have happened in my little world.  Lets start with the good and then move on the sad...


It has been 6 years with my DH!!!!

On Mother's day this past week, DH and I celebrated 6 years of marriage.  It seems so long ago!!  Mark and I went out to eat at this little French restaurant in town.  Lets just say they were very proud of their food!!!!  We did enjoy our meal though.  


For my anniversary gift, DH bought me this beautiful Dooney and Burke bag from Disney!!!!  Does my DH know me or what????

Stitching Update:  I spent the last week working on my Victorian Village.  I finished the Barber Shop!  I have one shop left, the Sweet Shop!  Up next in my rotation is Summer Ball.  I did not follow my 4 day rotation...I was supposed to have finished this on Monday night, however, as you read below, you will see why my rotation went away this week.....



School news....
On Monday, I was called into the office so the principal could let me know that one of my students committed suicide Sunday night.  I was in shock all day Monday and Tuesday.  The hardest part was telling his classmates what happened. Last night, we went to visit with his family.  That was so hard, mom was putting together a video of pictures of him growing up.  It is such a hard thing to lose a teenager.  

I am behind in reading around 4,000 emails....and around 1,000 blog posts....so I know what I will be doing this week when I start my summer vacation!!!!!

Vickie,
I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your student. I work in the mental health field and we are always impacted by suicides.

I love your Dooney and Burke - so colorful yet classic.

Way to go on your stitching - it looks great!

I hope your summer vacation starts wonderfully and you have plenty of time to stitch and read!

That's terribly sad, Vickie. I'm so sorry to hear it. Have said a prayer for the family and friends left behind, and for the student too. It's so sad to lose a teenager, for any reason. And grats on the anniversary. Your bag is lovely, and the wedding pic is sweet. Glad you are doing well, mostly, and I sincerely hope you enjoy your summer vacation!

The barbershop looks great. Can't wait to happy dance with you when the sweet shop is finished.
Enjoy your summer vacation.

Cute new bag, and so you.

Sorry to hear about the suicide. I'm sure it was difficult for everyone.
