I have to laugh at myself because, like a child coming home to play with a new toy, I was so excited to get home, rush in the door and complete this little easel card to post, and share. It seems like I've been away such a long time and that it's been forever since I've actually posted; I've been so anxious to finish at least one of the several projects I'd started since the weekend. This was the fastest to complete and get posted!
Now this card isn't glamorous or anything, it's just an easel card but it's the only project I've completed in several days and that alone makes me happy. Besides, as I'm not very fast at making cards, I really need a jump-start on my Christmas cards, so you'll probably be seeing more over the next several weeks along with any other projects I complete-- I hope you don't mind!!!
Anyway, here's my card:
Unfortunately, I've still got things I need to get to tomorrow, one being I have to take my aunt for her doctor's appointment in the morning and that's an all morning affair -- unfortunately! However, the medic car she used to order to drive her always comes too late for her to make her appointments on time, so I'm now her designated driver. I really don't mind, she's 90 years old and although she still works (yes, she's employed as a live-in care giver Monday thru Friday) and gets around pretty well, I don't trust having her on the street getting on and off buses. You see 3 years ago, getting off a bus going to work, a 16-year old not only hit my aunt and ran, she drove over her legs crushing bones to get away. After surgery, it was predicted my aunt would never walk again but although she has rods in both legs, she's one very, very feisty woman! She determined she would not sit at home and "dry rot" as she calls it, so she got up, started walking, and requested her agency arrange a patient for her to tend to close to home. Before you ask, no, the family couldn't stop her eventhough we insisted and threatened! She's a dear and I believe working is what keeps her motivated and going strong! So, we all gave in. Now, I just try to be watchful of her and keep her happy. The family does take comfort in that the lady she cares for only lives several blocks from my aunt's home and everyone in the neighborhood knows them, and watches out for them and my aunt's coming and going. For her to travel further outside her area -- on buses -- would make me too uncomfortable. But she'd try and dare anyone to stop her!!! LOL!!!
After that I have another errand, so I can't promise I'll have a project tomorrow (although I'll really try to finish another one); however, I will have my debut on Thursday over at Pam's blog and I'm hoping you will all join me for there for that.
In the meantime, hugs and...
I'll be seeing you!
