Busy as a Bee

In January my entire life changed. I took a full time nursing job at one of our local schools, and I didn't want to give up my hair business so I am doing that 2 evenings a week and Sat. I have to admit that is alot on my plate, especially with trying to do errands, laundry and keep my house half way clean. But I feel I am finally adjusting. I took the school job because I love the kiddies and I hope I can make a small difference in their lives. The plus to having a school job is having summers and holidays off plus snow days.
  Then my poor mom fell on Feb. 29th. and broke her hip, the same leg that she had a broken femur
3 years ago. The Dr. had to do surgery, take out the old rod, pins and screws and put in another one.
So after her hospital stay she had to go to rehab for a few weeks and finally got home Sat.
I think she was sent home too soon, but her insurance would only pay for so many days.
 I miss crafting so much, I will have to do my Christmas crafting this summer,
I was able awhile back to finish a penny rug, but that is all that I have been able to accomplish in crafting..
Yesterday my children and grandchildren were here for Easter, we had such a fun relaxing day.
 I cherish my family time. I hope everyone had a Happy Easter!!! I will show a few pictures.
Wishing everyone a beautiful Spring.

About Me

My photo
I have been married to my sweetheart Ronnie for 30 years.We live in the beautiful shenandoah valley of Va. We have 2 beautiful children and 3 beautiful grandchildren. I am a christian, and am blessed with two wonderful jobs. I am a hairdresser and also a nurse, I am proud of my nursing degree which I got at age 47. I give the Lord much praise for this. I also enjoy primitive crafts, antiquing, cooking, reading and gardening. My husband and I bought an old farmhouse in WV five years ago and it was ancient, floor rotted out in the kitchen, no bathroom, bats flying around, mice. Scary, well now five years later we have most of it completed, working now on a roof for the wrap around porch.We sand blasted some of the walls so they would be original, we also took all the old weatherboarding off of the outside of the house, planed it and put it back on some of the inside walls. We also have added a wrap around porch. Since we have remodled the old farmhouse, that is how I came up with my blog name.
