SKETCH CHALLENGE - IT'S PRIZE WEEK
SO BE SURE TO CHECK IT OUT.
Hello! - Well I must say not only was this sketch a bit of a "challenge" for me but trying to get it posted was an even bigger one. I have no clue what was going on but Blogger wouldn't put my photo's in right or align the typing the way I wanted it etc...It's been about 2 frustrating hours of deleting and reentering everything so hopefully this time is a go. This week the BC challenge is a "Sketch" challenge. I tried several different papers, stamps etc...before settling on this one. Which I happen to like so it was worth all the time and effort in the end. Card details follow at the end of this post. Below is a bit of what I've gone through this week.
We had a bit of a scare this week with Coleen. She became ill on Tuesday morning and her mom took her in to the doctor. I was at bowling at the time but called to find out how things were going. The doctors did a bunch of tests and thought it was appendicitis. They wanted her admitted to the hospital right away. Needless to say my bowling stunk and I headed out to the hospital as soon as we finished bowling. It was a long afternoon and one I hope to never repeat. The poor child had actually started feeling better but they wanted to give her an IV and after 3 tries and her screaming and crying about how much it hurt her mom and I finally told them to stop. Then when Coleen wanted something to eat/drink they said the doctor didn't want her to eat for another 4 hours. The poor kid had gone without food all day long. We ended up signing her out of the hospital against the doctor's orders and brought her home. They spent the night with us and Coleen ate spaghetti and drank some milk before going to bed. She was just fine the next morning and has been doing great since. We think it was some kind of a stomach bug but I sure was disgusted with all the needless tests they took and what they put that little girl through.
