  5. Hey girlfriend, gorgeous card, love the quilling. Very thing is incredible. Love your video. Still do not have everything sit up on my computer. Will be driving home with my girlfriend Teri on May 4, this will help her get one of the cars back to Wisconsin and she is going to stay at the house and apply for some jobs. I think that will help her find one instead of applying for the jobs from Texas. Miss you. Hugs, Pat

    1. Thank you Pat. It is so good to her from you. I have missed you and hope you are taking some time and LTC for YOU! Caregiving can be so hard! Miss you! I hope you have a safe trip home!
