Thanks to all

I just wanted to post today to say thanks to all my friends on my blog today ,for thinking of me and all your kind words .

Today is somewhat better.I was able to do all the arrangments yesterday ,my aunts did not want a wake or nothing ,and since my Mom only had so much for funeral cost .I decided i would have her cremated and once she comes backt o me.I decided that i was have a small memorial at my hopme and invite my brothers and sister ,and my dad over and we could do something and just leave my aunts to wallow in there misery and hate alone .

I have decided that i did what i thought was best and that she went with diginity and without pain ,she went in peace ,and now she is with god and that is all that matters ,I hope she finds the peace she deserves in heaven ,god rest her soul R.I.P TO Alice Mary Robidoux,4/17/47 to 12/16/08,, I love you Momma ,,Mary
P.S.the pic is from left to right ,My brother john,anthony ,alisha ( the middle) me at the end ,,mary..

My Boink Progress..

Well i finally got to the latest installment on the ink circles pattern. I was surpose to get to workin on my Monopoly Game board,but due to my mother bein ill i have been spending a lot of time at the hospital.Right now her kidneys are borderline and they want to put in a stunt but she is not well enough at the moment ,they were suppose to do it today but the dr did not like the way her arm looked so they are gonna try again in a few days.

It just seems like everything is rushing by these last few weeks ,they are tellin us she is terminall because of her kidneys and diabetes ,she also has severe demensia.

But i tell you seein my mother like this at 61 is scaring me so much ,you see i,m also diabetic but since i found out i have been tryin to foloow trhe diet and do what i,m suppose to do ,I started off over 350 pds and a size 32 and now i,m down to 290 and a size 22 and for me is so great .

My husband took me out on saturday nite we actually went out with a bunch of his co worker and i felt so great bein in the smaller size i looked nice and felt great and we had such a great time dancing and chatting and laughing it felt so good ,it has beeen so long since we had been out .

I told my hubby what i wanted for my birthday ,I said iw ould like to go out again and spend it with all our friends it was so great . On October 16 I'll be 38 yrs old (yes i'm getting old ,LOL.)

But i do feel better and i think i look better ,I'm hoping to someday get back to my old size before i had kids ,a size 14,, tahnks for reading ,Mary

All caught up on My Boink!!!!

Well I decided since i had no time really over the weekend i would just work on it this week.Well i am all caught up now all i have to do is wait for the rest of the parts to be released and do them as they come.I think my choices choices look pretty so vibrant ,Bright and very colorful. will try and get some time in on my Monopoly game board now ..
P.s. I thought i would come back today and include one more subject. Although i do luv the Boink pattern .I was quite surprise today when i went post to the group of my progress ,they will not let me post they do not think that my typing and writing skills are good enough so they blocked me from writing any posts .I cannot even answer an email from the group. They did not even tell me they were gonna do this to me .I do not think this was right ,yes i know sometimes i mess up but you know what i have a baby on my lap most of the time and well to be honest i don,t have a lot of education i dropped out at 10Th grade but i should not be penalize for that .I thought i was kind and considerate and when they asked me to please try i did ,and well they still denied me the privilege of posting ..
