Could Be Worse

My goddaughters Rudi & Judi and a heckuva deep-dish pizza in Chicago...

Thanks for the well-wishes everyone! This has been a really rough two weeks for me, lol. Someone got ahold of my card number and wiped out a bank account and my 9-year old car got totaled when my husband connected with a guardrail (he's fine! Whew!). Top it all off with being laid up for 2 days and I think it's safe to say I've been a "little" stressed.

Everything has worked out though. The bank reimbursed all of my money, my insurance will allow me to be able to get another car and I'm feeling a lot better! My husband wasn't injured and things so could've gone another way. There are so many other things to be happy about: I won my guild's raffle quilt, I'm going to be published and my quilt for the Jazz exhibit is being considered as the image for the exhibit. Yay!

With everything going on in this world right now, things could be a whole lot worse, you know?

Elle!!
The good news is way better than the bad news. I hope your jazz quilt is the one. Remember back when you thought it wasn't accepted?

Hope you will have a great 2006 - you have some goals set, so go for it!!

That bank account wipe out happened to us a few years back and it took the bank a friggin 45 days to return all the money...but life is just bittersweet, your sweet is tilted in your favor and wishing more of it for you in the upcoming year!

Elle, so glad everything turned out well. No Grinch can stop you. Gotta say that is one major league pizza....but even better, keep fingers crossed your quilt is the selection...don't ever doubt yourself again.
With all your talent 2006 should be an amazing year! Happy Holidays!

I am so thankful for all your good news and that the bad stuff is on it's way to being improved. What a great angle on that pizza picture. Those girls are just barely peeking over the top!
