The good, the bad and the ugly …

Let’s start with the bad, cuz she’s awful darn cute:  Here is Cally.  She is DH’s favorite Yorkie (therefore, doubly spoiled and a COMPLETE brat!).  I think I figured out why he loves her so … she has the same coloring as his beard! [Doh!] The ugly:  While on sick leave, my employer called to …

What a week ….

But first – cuteness.  This is our Olivia and her daughter Tubitha (Tubby).  Awww … Now, my week.   Apparently, my grandmother decided at 89 years of age that she didn’t want her gallbladder anymore.  She was so insistent about not wanting it, that she started to go into septic shock.  The family phone lines have …

That’s about how exciting surgical recovery is, on a day to day basis … for me.  [No offense to lawn maintenance operators …]  Or, more accurately, waiting for skin to grow (incisions to heal) … exciting stuff, I tell you!  Or, it would be, if that’s all I had going on. Lucky for me, I …

A good day …

A few good hours in the studio, and I’m one happy girl!  That added to the fact that the stitches are FINALLY out, I’m healing and starting to feel human again! So – my good day:  It actually started a few days ago, when DH and I took some items to local shops, and I ‘peddled my wares’ …
