Here's how this happened ....
Sunday my son drove me to the clinic in town because I was just not feeling well. When he grabbed his scraper from the back of his car (because it's January & we do live in Wisconsin) the door wouldn't shut all the way. He finally got it to at least stay closed & said "good enough".
Except, it wasn't. The next morning when he went to warm up his car (because it's January & we do live in Wisconsin) ....it wouldn't start. In fact, it wouldn't do anything. Not even a click. *car fail*
And where do you suppose he parked his car the night before??? Right in front of the garage, in front of my car. So not only would his car not start, but he had my car blocked in.
My husband leaves super early for work, so he was not able to assist us in charging the battery. So Matthew called one of his friends whom he usually drives to ask if he could possibly drive. His answer .... "I hate driving in the snow" .... well duh. Nobody LIKES driving in the snow. But it's January, & we do live in Wisconsin. So he said "Suck it up, Buttercup" & they were on their way to school.
But that didn't help me get to work. I had no one I could call, no one who could drive me, so I had to call in
After 20 minutes of chores I was done. lol .... I was still recuperating so I decided I'd better just relax (self diagnosis) & thought since no one was home it was the perfect time to try to make a card. I didn't think I'd actually finish one! I'm kinda proud of myself. Even though I don't love it, it felt good to sit down & make something all at one time. In just a few hours. Not months. Hours.
PS --- check out the gauze paper! Gauze paper??? New to me! I have missed out on a LOT of fun things!
