Saturday with Unscripted Sketches and CSI
Can't believe it's already Saturday but this has been one LONG week. I know I haven't posted much but getting ready for CHA was keeping me so busy. Finally got all my stuff out last week - well the first wave anyway. I'm sure there will be some last minute projects that need to get done but the things for the catalog went out on time. Then I had somehow landed a horrible schedule at work. Was to work Friday, Sunday, Monday, Wednesday and Thursday. Almost overwhelming for me who normally works no more than two in a row - then has several days rest before I tackle it again. Anyway Friday I ended up with the assignment from H - I mean probably the worst I've had in I don't know when. Agitated patient who was spitting - like trying to keep a 195 pound two year old in bed and not hurting himself or me. I was exhausted - came home and told my hubby I was just too old for this stuff. Anyway as you know we keep our house constantly on the ready to show basis since it's for sale so when I leave in the morning my room is spotless, bed made, nothing on the counters. I had had a fever blister after a sinus infection the week before and bought campho phanique (sp_) for the first time. Had just thrown in under the counter when I left for work. Well I has Lasix years ago so I have chronically dry eyes and I use lacrilube and drops in them nightly. Went to do that and can even remember thinking wow that sure went in smooth (lacrilube is usually gooey). About the time I started the left eye the right one started burning but your natural instinct is to blink so got it in the left as well. Basically scalded my eyes. Lubed and babied them all Saturday. We are short so went in on Sunday - charge nurse took one look at me and sent me to the ER. Three hours later was sent home and then had to follow up with Optho on Monday. Good thing is I didn't burn my corneas and your eyes heal quickly so I'm back to normal - just still a little dry and need lots of drops.Then on top of that was trying to recover a jump drive and the CD that my SIL sent wiped out my photo program. Had to order a new one (since I'd long ago lost the disc) and then couldn't get it to upload. Finally my SIL called me last night and helped me fix it (he's my own personal go to computer wiz and guess what I can understand him!!!)
Here's my card for US this week. Not sure I'm very happy with it but it works with the sketch. Please stop by and see our new Design Team's inspiration.
Next up is my layout for CSI case file this week. Don't know what led me off into this grid pattern but it worked with the cute little pictures I had of Gavin from my trip to Houston. AND this little guy got me four happy mails last week plus I had another one picked up of my granddaugthers! Great week for happy mail!
