    baseball2hockey - I have been wondering what happened to you! I'm glad to hear everything is ok. Boy are you busy these days! Your daughter is so lucky to have your help.

    Congrats on winning the free tickets! I will be teaching at the show on Sunday at 1:30 so come by and say hi! I'll be at the Spotlight Stage in the middle of the fashion/makeup building. See you Sunday!

    First of all. Hi everyone! I'm still here but quiet. I follow Faye's blog everyday just haven't been adding any comments lately since I have been a full-time grandma to my 6 month old granddaughter Mon - Fri and a Nanny to a 4 year old girl 3 days a week along with my grand-baby. So I am on the road a bit between babysitting at my daughter's house and having to pick up and take the 4 year old to their house. It gets pretty late some days and I don't get to add any input to the blog when I finally get home.
    I just found out a couple hours ago that I won 2 Southern Women's Show tickets from Food Lion on Facebook for entering a questionnaire yesterday about their Refreshing Store. It noted that the first 50 comments would win 2 tickets only if Food Lion liked your comment. And, YAY they did! I won't be able to attend the Show until Sunday though, since Friday and Saturday are set aside to help my Son and his girlfriend move across Greensboro. BUSY, BUSY,BUSY!!! Hope to see ya!
