Today was the GOOD and the BAD of the day!! So I will begin at the beginning.
I got up this morning expecting this to be a fabulous day. PTM and I were going to Checker to pick up an order and I was so excited. I picked her up this am and we had to drop my DD1 off at work in AA. Then we headed off to Maumee, OH. On the way my car was making a whomp, whomp, whomp kind of noise. It kind of sounded like the tread of the tire had separated. So I called DH and he told me to check the tires. No problem with that. So we kept going.
We arrived at Checker and proceeded to shop. And shop we did! Then while we were shopping I go an email from none other than Anne Sutton of Bunny Hill Designs. I had sent her an email telling her about my give away and the blocks that PTM had made from her pattern. She had a minute and finally got a chance to read my blog about the give away. Well, she was sooooooo nice and asked if PTM might like to "stunt embroidery" for her. Well, I have to say that PTM almost peed her pants right there in Checker!!!
Are you kidding me? Of course she would love to do that. Then a woman named Penny, that has designed rulers for Creative Grid and has written books was talking with us and mentioned that the designers of Crabapple Hill might like to have someone to stunt embroidery for them too. HOW COOL IS THAT???
So once we got over that we kept shopping. She bought sooo many bolts!!
I was so happy that we go so many cool things today. Photos later though because of what happened on the way home. We were so close to home and the whomp, whomp, whomp continued and then...and THEN...the wheel (yes the WHEEL) flew off of my car and went across the other lane on the road we were on across the median and then across the other 2 lanes of traffic and then up on the side of the highway. No one was hurt. PTM was shaken up (actually so was I). We had to call the tow truck and then wait for DH to come and get us. DH came and got us and we went to get DD1 and then went to the dealer and got our spoils out of the car. Here is my car as we were waiting to leave with the towing guy (who did not want to go across all the traffic to get the wheel!! so I had to go and get it myself).
We went to the dealership and then I brought PTM home. I did NOT get to the gym today. On the upside we did not even eat lunch today. WHAT A DAY!!!
On a lighter note. DD1 took our dog, Laxy to the local elementary school on Wed. She is training her to be a therapy dog. Here she is in her new vest.
and this is what the patch in the middle says:
All in all quite an eventful day. I hope your day was less eventful. I have to say though, that if I had to have this kind of day I am happy PTM was the one with me!!
