I have started and never finished a few blogs simply because I came home just plain overwhelmed and too busy to complete anything. Due to a freak storm in West Dearborn, our home was "hugged" by a very large sycamore branch. We are dealing with the aftermath of 5 punctures in the roof, and the water damage that went along with it. This just runs the old adage, "...it can happen to anyone". Many people suffered far worse damage than us with large old maples and the like being uprooted, streets blocked by the debris, and downed telephone lines catching fires to homes. We were on vacation, but from the pictures we have seen of the neighborhood, it looked like a war zone.
"Hugged" by the sycamore we asked the city to remove over a year ago....the irony (or karma via Mother Nature's sense of humor?).
Last night I went to my first in-store crop at Scrappy Chic in Livonia for some much needed R&R to take my mind off things and have a little fun with friends. Big kudos to them for a well-run crop. I had a ton of fun and an abundance of laughter filled hours with two fellow scrapaholic friends. As we chuckled over our undeniable paper hoarding obsessions, a friend said, "It's a sickness." I replied with my typical blatant honesty, "Yes, but I don't want to stop it." Actually, I was a good girl and did not purchase any new lines, but you know I was looking and planning for my next paper spree. *sigh* Bad Faith! (see it does no good).
On to the important stuff...
