Thanks Katie. I pray everything gets better. I love your work. You are very talented.

Oh, Katie--I am so very sorry--so many things kcoming down on you and your DH at once, when you are already so tired physically and emotionally.  My son just said that one of the hardest things about online friends is not being able to give a hug or take a meal--I wish I could do both.  I will be praying for you and your husband as you get ready for his surgery on the 17th and for his recovery to be complete and rapid, for the cancer to be removed completely.  Your brother and his sons will be in my prayers---what an act of love to care for her so faithfully at home.  I saw with my mom taking care of my dad what a difficult task that is, even without the further complications of the ALS.  Whatever you decide to do about going back for the funeral, I'm pretty sure your brother will know how much you both love him and care about him.  Bless you--and consider yourself hugged....

I am so glad your stuff is unloaded and that you have a garage where the boxes can stay as you unpack.  I always found that to be a huge help--we would bring in just a few boxes at a time, unpack and put stuff away, and not bring in any more boxes after about 5 p.m.  I would imagine it would be harder since you are combining two households.  I'll be praying for your DH to get a better report than the doctor led you to expect and for you both to get settled in.  Here's hoping for some quilting time for you soon--better than therapy, isn't it?  I point out to my DH that it's cheaper too, but he isn't always sure of that.....

I would be tempted to hide under a blanket and suck my thumb if I were you--if i could find a blanket, that is.  If you can't sell your furniture at a thrift shop and don't have time to do it through yard sale or classifieds, you might want to consider donating it to Goodwill or SA--with receipts (and maybe pictures) to document the donation, you might make more as a tax write-off than you would get for selling it.  Just a thought.  Remember, as your poor dog would tell you, this too shall pass.  (I'm sorry--I just couldn't reist....)

I will be keeping you, your DH and your crew in my prayers over the next few days.  People talk about curtains never fitting new windows when you move, but furniture seems to work the same way.  My mother sent me a very old china cabinet that had been given to me (along with her dining room table and chairs) by an elderly friend.  I had a space for it--but now I have no idea where the Christmas tree is going to go....wait, didn't Martin Luther hang the tree upside down from the ceiling?

I feel for both of you---I counted up when we made our last move and it was my 22nd or 23rd.  At one point we moved five times in six years, and I heard my  DD tell her brother once that it was really weird living in one place so long--we had been there two years at that point.  Just remember, once you can make the bed, take a shower and cook a meal, you can take your time with the rest of the unpacking!  Oh, wait--better add finding machine and fabric to that list of essentials.  I came home with 19 yards of fabric, four spools of quilting thread, and a new quilt book--all with my birthday fabric money from DH ($100)!!!!  I am tickled.   Again, safe travels for you and your movers.

Katie--I do know how you feel about a fabric fix.  I'm absolutely giddy b/c tomorrow i'm going to Georgia Quilt Fest with quilting friends--I'm looking forward to seeing beautiful quilts, but the truth is that I'm most excited about visiting all the vendors.  We have an hour's drive to get to the closest chain fabric store and two hours to a quilt shop--I get so excited when I'm driving up and down I-75 when I pass The Scarlet Thread's billboard.  Perhaps if you explain to your DH that fabric deprivation is a serious condition, he'll be willing to make a few stops along the way---I tell my DH that I like to stop at quilt shops b/c i know they will have clean bathrooms.  It's hard to argue with that, right?  Safe travels and happy home coming to you....

Hi Katie, I'm hoping to visit Wilmington soon as my brother and very good quilting buddy live there!!  We are looking to go to a couple of fabric shops in Jacksonville.  I'm also from NY...the Elmira/Corning area.  Happy Quilting!   Vicki/NY
