Cold Heartless Prank

I get a call this afternoon at work from "a friend" of my daughter's. He said that my daughter had been in a serious accident --> hit by a car. He told me that she had a compound fracture and was being taken to a hospital (he told me the name of the hospital). I asked a few more questions as my panic increased to almost hysteria. I had started to cry and was shaking pretty badly

My daughter lives across the country - literally. I was so frightened that something had happened and she was injured and well, you know....all sorts of terrible things started running through my head.

So, in a scurry, a few of my colleagues here at work searched Google and found the number for the hospital ER and the State Police for me. What a blessing they were.

The ER said that she hadn't arrived yet. They also said that they hadn't received any "codes", meaning, that at least they were not having an emergency brought in that was life threatening. The emergency room suggested I also call the State Police.

I called the State Police and they said since midnight last night there were not any emergencies involving a pedestrian. (My daughter doesn't own a car and either walks, rides her bike, or rides the bus almost everywhere she goes).

It began to dawn on me that I might be the victim of a prank. So, I started to calm down a little bit, hopeful that she was okay.

I found the number for her house phone (since her cell phone was in somebody else's possession). Called her house and talked to one of her roommates. I asked if my daughter had mentioned whether or not she had lost her cell phone.

She had.

I asked for the exact name of the YMCA where she worked so I could look up the phone number...and finally called her workplace.

They routed me back to the room where she was working, taking care of infants.

And I talked to her and she was okay. I'm glad she's okay.

Whoever that darned boy was that played that prank needs a good knock upside the head!

For a brief amount of time, I knew what it felt like to feel helpless and afraid of losing the one person that means more to me than almost everyone else.

Warm Little Sweetness

I must admit that I have become quite fond of making little bitty sweaters.   It all started on a recent trek to India traveling for business. I needed to carry just enough yarn to keep my busy bee hands occupied during the evenings in my hotel room. There are just so many hats a person can make, right?  Anyway, having limited quantities of yarn, I decided to give a small sweater a go.  This is the first one I created. I had just the perfect little buttons to add! (It really is amazing what one might find in their cosmetic bag) I love it.  This sweater is also featured on the Pinque Peacock blog   since I used her buttons.  (Go visit and see the buttons up close) This makes the sweater a really one of a kind project! This next one is perfect for a little preemie.  It's so tiny, but features a great big snowflake! Close up of the snowflake…. I also sewed on one of the StampinUp! Frosted Finishes Embellishments.  I think it finished it off nice

Halloween Scrapbooking Sheets

I created these this morning....just in time for making a few treats before the spooks come calling tomorrow night! Enjoy.

Precious Boy

A quiet, misty morning walk in late March 2012. This little precious boy puts a smile on my face every time I look at him. I mean, really, who wouldn't smile like there's no tomorrow at this little guy?  I love him.  Every. Little. Thing. He almost (ALMOST) competes with my husband. My sweet husband with a similar expression.  What do YOU think?
