What I've Been Up To

Hi everyone! I am finally feeling better! I have had a rough go with allergies, bronchitis and fibromyalgia along many other life things.

Tomorrow is my daughter's last bridal shower. This one is hostessed by the groom's mom. I'm super excited! I made her a wall hanging of their wedding date, using the seat numbers at the Detroit Tiger's Comerica Park. She and her fiance are huge fans, as are we. Here is a picture:

They'll love it! (Click on the photo to enlarge)
Along with all the wedding prep, we've been busy trying to transition our things to Chicago. I think a couple more trips will do it. Since the apartment is tiny, we will leave the vast majority of our things here. It's just taking a lot of time sorting through everything and deciding whether to bring it, leave it or donate it.
Two weeks ago, we made a quick trip to Collierville, TN to visit the hubby's sister. It was a lot of fun and stressful. The stress comes in because we are in the process of getting a diagnosis for my mother in law, she is showing signs of early stage Alzheimer's. I am no stranger to this disease, my grandmother lived with us for a while when she was first diagnosed. We visited a very nice Alzheimer's adult day care, she's not ready for this but they were able to talk to us about what is going on and they've pretty much confirmed our suspicions but the symptoms could still be caused by other things. We just need to get a doctor confirmation which is extremely difficult when the person is uncooperative. We should know more this summer/fall.
Hubby has been in Switzerland this week for work. I feel like our life is a complete whirlwind right now. I'm starting to have a hard time keeping up!
I hope all of you are doing well! I hope you're all still there to read this! LOL! Thank you so much if you are! I will get better about blogging in the next couple of months when things get a little more "normal". Oh and Emma sends kisses! I will post pics of her soon!
(Why does blogger mess up my spacing!?!)

Kim, that is so clever. I know they will cherish this for years to come.
So much excitement; I can imagine the stress you are feeling. Poor MIL. It is so sad when someone starts to lose their valued memories, as well as every day skills. I will pray that your family finds some relief. And you must be so excited for your daughter....I can't wait to see wedding pictures!
