Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! I’m sorry for my blogging absence for the past week. Between my crazy Christmas Eve and sickness that followed, things have not gone according to plan! So, I decided to combine the last 2 days of my 12 Days of Giveaways. Entries will run from today until Wednesday, January 8, when my monthly newsletter will go out for those who have joined my mailing list from my blog. Not signed up yet? What are you waiting for? Newsletters will contain exclusive projects not posted anywhere else and will let you know of upcoming events!
Here it is, the last of my 12 Days of Giveaways and it’s a big one – 20 handmade cards and a This and That journal.
The entry for this giveaway is a little different than for the last 10 days. To enter, simply leave me a comment on my blog or FB page with that crafting resolution or goals you have for the new year! You will also get an entry if you are signed up for my mailing list from my blog.
One last good fuzzy thought. I started writing this post Christmas morning. For those of you wondering what happened, here’s my story.
Christmas Eve Morning Craziness
Yesterday, my morning went completely unplanned as when I got Murphy up from Elizabeth’s room (he sleeps in her room every night), he was limping. 🙁 Ordinarily I would wait a day to see if it gets better, but the vet hospital (also my work) isn’t open today. So, I called work and they were able to take him if I left right away. Addison and I had already planned to do 1 last shopping trip, so we threw our clothes on and drove Murphy to the vet.
Close to our exit, we heard a pop and then rumble from my car. Yup – flat tire. 🙁 I called work to let them know we were stuck on the side of the road. Sarah, my coworker, came to get Murphy so Dr. Eddy could get started examining him, and I called AAA. Not too long after Sarah picked Murphy up, a tow truck pulled behind my car. Two guys came out and said they saw that I had a “little one” and looked like I had a flat tire. I showed them the tire and where the flat was. They told me to stay in my car and they would take care of it. They were very quick and then waved and said, “Merry Christmas”. I thought it was weird that they didn’t ask for my AAA card, but maybe they had all the information they needed from AAA. I drove away and within a minute, I got a call from the towing company AAA called, asking where I was because they couldn’t find me! It turns out that the guys that put my spare on saw me as a woman stranded on the road with a child and a flat tire and stopped to help out of kindness! What a nice Christmas present!
Murphy was given Rimadyl for his swollen and painful front legs. He is doing much better now. He finished his meds Thursday so I’m praying that whatever was wrong with him is gone and the lameness wont’t return.
