    I love spending time with all my grandchildren but find that my daughter in law is happy and friendly when I will watch the grandchildren so she can do things but has little time for me otherwise.

    My grandmother got put in the hospital a few weeks back with pnemonia and a kidney infection, not to mention she hardly weighed a thing. The family decided that if she made it out of the hospital she was going to a home which is what happened. Well, she's still been going down hill. When she...

    I sure didn't inherit it from my mom. She has absolutely no crafting ability and will say so. My grandmother did make lovely embroidered items, so I must have gotten my love of doing a craft from her. I may have also gotten it from my dad. He was really good at working woodwork and...
