Thank you all again for the well-wishes for my mom!
She had surgery on her foot on Friday - there was more than one break and they couldn't be set properly so the specialist had her in for surgery.
And of course my home phone line is completely down (I've been having issues with the phone for MONTHS now and when I finally couldn't take it anymore and contacted the company - they sent someone out to "fix" it last week and guess what - it worked for like 3 days and now I have NO working phones in my house!! But at least I have internet LOL. I have to wait 'till Monday to get it fixed!) - so I've only been able to use my cell phone.
I called mom to make sure everything was OK and that her surgery went OK (she said it did but then said she had a horror story to tell me about the surgery - but wouldn't tell me till we can talk face to face as she doesn't like me "wasting money" by using my cell - typical mother *grin*) - and hopefully I will be seeing her tomorrow.
Oh and for those that asked HOW it all happened - she was trying to move a HUGE (like 5 or 6 feet high) mirror that weighed 50-60 pounds and it slipped and came down on her foot and crushed it. How she managed to do that without screaming or swearing a blue streak (as I would have done - y'all would have HEARD me!!!) is beyond me but she was in massive pain.
ANYWHO - I've been running around like a crazy person for what - 2 weeks now?? I'm hoping things calm down for a good long time now.
I've been dying to create - I have a TON of new stamps sitting in my studio (a bunch are from the new All That Scraps release that's happening on Monday!! ACK!) and I just have been so drained that I couldn't stamp to save my life.
I didn't get anywhere near all the projects done that I wanted to for Halloween - but I am learning that there are a lot of things that I can't control and that rather than stress about unfinished projects or plans that aren't working out it's just better to cut my losses and move on. It's not an easy lesson but I'm working on it!
And at the moment since *I* can't post anything stampy y'all should definitely check out the ATS blog right now - there are a bunch of sneak peek posts up and if you leave comments on them you will be entered in to win the stamps being previewed!! Good luck!!
I'm exhausted - it's been a LONG day and I am secretly hoping that I can sleep in tomorrow - that would be beyond fabulous! And maybe just maybe I can get some time to stamp!! *crosses fingers*
