Mystery Solved

I know now why girls play with dolls when they are young. Being a product of the 40's / 50's, I always thought it was because of some inborn need to mother. I know this is not necessarily true. In fact, it may be to prepare those of us with hubbies/partners/loved ones, etc... for the possible day that we need to help dress those whom we love so much.
Yup, Jack's back blew out, (for lack of a better term). The poor guy had to call me at work today and say, "Sandee come home, I can't move." I was in the midst of administering state tests to a group of 24 kids so I had to finish up the testing then pass all my duties over to someone else.
I swear, putting socks on someone else with a bad back must be one of the hardest thing to do. I hate to pull too hard or tweak a foot the wrong way - and I've done that before. Socks off - easier. Socks on - not so easy.
Then I put his sweats on backwards and had to start over.
Note to self: give him pain pills prior to administering socks!

The fremch word for today is very apporiate, nurse. I know you are a very good nurse because you care for others.
Instinct takes hold and you do the rest out of love.
Get well quick Jack, sorry you'r hurting.

Sorry to hear about his back problems! Backs can really makes us miserable.

I love the quilt fabric you got and the squares you made!
