Quilt With Us

Hello my quilting friends,

Just stopping by to say hello.  My friend Jenny is here from England for a couple of weeks.  The sewing machines have been humming.  I helped her yesterday make a zig zag table runner.  It's been awhile since I made one so it gave my brain a bit of work-out trying to remember all the steps.  But it's done and she loves it.

The end of the week Bud's son is driving up from N.Y.  I am in the most bizarre situation.  Bud's ex girlfriend whom he hasn't laid eyes on in over 20 years decided to go to the Nursing home and sign him out.  She said she was his sister and then when asked for ID changed it to her being his friend.  They of course did not let her take him and called me.  Making a long story short she didn't give up and I have to go to court on the 27th as she has filed for guardianship.  I have been with this man for over 20 years. He needs the care he is getting at the nursing home and I want him to stay there. So I am also filing for guardianship so she can't take him out of the nursing home.  The only motive I can come up with is she needs money and that is her way of getting it.  He is unable to walk, has dementia, is incontinent and not the most enjoyable person to be around. She is 78 years old and spent all last Winter in a Conn. hospital having back surgery.  Have you ever heard of such a mess as this?

I managed to get a couple of pair of curtains made recently.  I have three quilts to make before Christmas for my three youngest grand kids so will have to get cracking on them.  I hope you all have had a nice Summer.

Good morning Irene, I am so pleased you have your UK friend visiting and hope the fun and enjoyment over rides the stress you are having at the moment.  I pray common sense prevails when decisions of care are made, this ex girlfriend  sounds as though Shauncalvert@yahoo.co.uk is in need of some psychological help, her behaviour is completely unacceptable, but, very disturbing.  You are in my thoughts and prayers, do take care.

I hope you get guardianship with as little hassle as possible. I sounds like she's a nutty as a fruitcake. Who comes in and wants to take over in this situation? I hope his son stands up for you.

Irene, hopefully the judge will award you guardianship since you have been with him all these years.  If not, to his son if he is willing to take on that responsibility.  It never ceases to amaze me how greedy people can be!

I'm glad you are getting to enjoy time with your friend!
Holy cow! That whole situation with this woman is creepy! I would definitely take legal action for sure! I wish you luck and will be thinking of you!

Carole even though this Barbara had not seen Bud in over 20 years they talked on the phone now and then. She lives 4 hours from here so there was no contact other then the phone.  Bud and I never married. It was my choice as he asked me many times but I just didn't want to get married.  I think she is a nut case.

Enjoy your precious time with your friend.

What a strange situation!  I am hoping the courts see right through this woman!  I wouldn't be surprised if she doesn't even show up.  She's crazy!

Good grief, Irene!  This has all the makings of a soap opera plot!  While you are in court, requesting a restraining order sounds like a good idea!  She certainly mis-represented herself to the nursing home by claiming to be his sister.  By the way, how did she know he was there if he hadn't had contact for 20 years?

Positive thoughts coming your way for a successful outcome to this situation. Will be thinking of you on Tuesday! This other woman definitely has a problem thinking she can care for Bud.  You have taken care of him for a long long time and put him in the nursing home because he needed that type of help. You did what was best for his well being. I agree, you would think marriage would automatically be considered guardianship. Glad you are having a nice time with your friend!

Comment by Janet/MO on September 21, 2016 at 6:32am

Oh my word Irene.  I'm surprised that you wouldn't automatically be considered his guardian since you are married.  Would you be able to get a restraining order against her?  That is definitely something you need to check in to because this woman sounds like she is one sandwich short of a picnic!  I definitely agree that she is after money.  I sure hope this gets resolved with a minimum of hassle for you.   I agree with Pam that it is nice that your friend has been there to do some fun stuff with.  I am sending positive thoughts that all goes well next Tues.

Irene...what on earth!!!! That is so bizarre. I'd also charge her with harassment and mental stress. She is definitely after money.
I'm glad your friend is visiting. Nothing like a BFF to talk with. Like your new photo.
