May is always a busy month for me...and even more so this year with the "anniversary" of my son-in-law's death...it is amazing how the grandkids especially the youngest know without the adults discussing it that it's been a year...they just suddenly started talking about their dad and what happened and how they miss him...i know my daughter was getting depressed as the date approached but we really didn't say much about it and not within hearing of the kids...not to hide anything but to enjoy the birthdays and mother's day...i think maybe Billy has been visiting though...we have all had dreams and suddenly Tay is talking about his daddy again...and they are all clingy...i know it will pass...meanwhile i have been going non-stop with chores and work...redoing the upstairs bath and getting ready to start on the downstairs bath...so i am thinking i might need to research how to get myself cloned...just so i can have some crafting time...lol...i will create and the clone can be the drudge...ah such a nice fantasy right?

having a problem with my computers (all of them) recognizing my camera all of a sudden...i have tried almost everything short of formatting the card...which i will do as soon as i can get to Wally-World and get them transferred to a disc...i don't want to lose those pics...i have had trouble with this camera recently so it may be time to get a new one...wish i could afford a DSLR...but not right now..so probably another point & shoot...i like Canon...but will have to read some reviews first...i will post some cards as soon as i can...
