One martini

I finally had to get a few cards made for my daughter's boyfriend...it feels like it has been forever since I have been in my craft area.  Amanda left today to go spend a couple of days with Zach and then she has to go back early for some training since she is a RA at the Residence Hall.  It was sad to have her leave she has been a big help for me with my husband.  She has helped to remind him to take his medication and watch him take the pills (otherwise there have been times he has dropped them and I would find them the next morning when I was doing his cares), she has helped with meals and errands.  Hospice is going to send an aide in the evening for an hour to check on my husband while I'm at work which is great; however, I know he just felt more comfortable with Amanda.  I'm glad she will have a few days to relax with Zach before going back to school.  I had to make a card for her to give him as well as one from us.  This is the card from us.
