A very sad day.....


It's a very sad day for me. I was planning to show you a scissor fob that my friend Merrilyn made for me. It was a beautiful beaded fob in shades of green. I even went out and bought a pair of scissors just to go with it. And then, at some point between bedtime last night and breakfast this morning, that no good, very bad Morkie, who attracted to sparkly things, got a hold of it and ate it! Not all of it, I caught her before she did too much damage but the fact remains, it can't be used any more. I'm going to hope that if I throw myself at Merrilyn's feet and promise to pay her for her time, she'll take pity on me and my darn dog and re-do it for me. And if she does re-do it, I'm going to make sure it's put up higher and not on the magnet that is on my Ott light. Apparently, it's not a Morkie proof place! Bad dog! Very bad dog!! I feel awful about the whole thing. I'm sorry Merrilyn! Here's a couple pics of the damage.

In other news.....Amy left for DC and the fall journalism convention on Wednesday. Her schools news broadcast was nominated for a Pacemaker Award. Only 10 schools across the US get nominated so it's a big honor. If you are at all interested, this is the show that was nominated. Anyway, the plane made it there in one piece but Amy is a little worse for wear. As they were descending into DC, the ride got bumpy and she was struck by sudden nausea and a horrible headache. She spent the rest of the day (DO NOT READ THE REST OF THIS SENTENCE IF YOU ARE AT ALL SQUEAMISH) vomiting and having the dry heaves. Can air sickness do that to you? That's what I am hoping it is. The report I got today from her was that she is very sore from being sick but feeling better.

Adam is leaving for Las Vegas tomorrow night. He and some buddies are going for the weekend. This means I get to worry about 2 of my kids flying this weekend. I'm a terrible worrier. I won't rest easy until they are both home safely Sunday night.

The schnauzer's gave Kallie their cold. She's having a terrible time with the sneezing. About half the time she does the reverse sneeze thing where it sounds like she can't breath or is having an asthma attack. Totally freaks Gracie out which stresses the reverse sneezer even more. What possessed me to have 3 dogs? I must have been out of my mind!

In village news, the layout is finally decided on and now construction will begin on the landscaping. this will be a long process. My group of friends that I write the racy village stories about are chomping at the bit for a new chapter. I'm not sure if I should give in or make them wait till the village is done. It's kind of like Brigadoon, the village goes to sleep after the holidays and doesn't wake up for 9 months. Therefore, there wouldn't be any new stories to tell till the village is all done right? So I'm thinking they are just going to have to be patient!

I finished Give Thanks. Have yet to decide what I want to do with it though. It measures approx. 2 x 2 3/4 inches. Is that too big for a floss tag? Again, I haven't ever seen one so I am not sure how large they are supposed to be.

That's about all I have for today, I probably won't blog again till next week as Adam is taking my camera with him to Vegas. Plus, we have to have the shop all ready to open up for business on Monday which means I am going to be very busy this weekend! So have a great weekend everyone! Thanks for stopping in!

That floss tag is so pretty. I hope that your friend can fix it. Very bad dog indeed. And hopefully all that is wrong with your daughter is air sickness. My son used to get it all the time when we traveled, but after some time he would feel better. And if your finish seems to large for a floss tag, perhaps you could just put in on a ring with project threads and enjoy it that way.

I hope Amy feels better soon and congratulations to her! I hope Adam wins lots (if that's what he's going for) and I'm sure they'll are return home safely! Trying not to worry is fruitless though - I know.

I think your finish would make a great floss tag. I don't think they have to be any certain size. It's totally up to you.

Too bad about your fob.... I hope you can get it fixed.

Awwwww! Sorry about the Scissor Fob turned doggie treat. It is so pretty and perhaps can be repaired. It will one day - but not yet - be a good story.

Hope your Amy feels better and it was just the flight. I know I am not a good flyer and flying has had that effect on me, usually before we even take off. Us mom's can never turn off that worrying. Someone told me that worrying is a bad use of imagination. They didn't have children!

Poor scissor fob.

I feel so sorry for your daughter. It was pretty rough weather in DC on Wednesday. I hope she does great at the awards.

Thanks for your concern about Amy. I spoke with her last night and although she is sore she said she was doing much better and was able to enjoy the Newseum and the Holocaust Museum yesterday. Her biggest problem now is her knees. Lots of swelling so she was icing them last night.

Oh my on the scissor fob.. puppy must have thought it was beautiful, but tasteless! I hope she can repair it, and has mercy on the puppy!

I'm glad that Amy made it to DC and despite all her sickness, had a worthwhile trip. And hope Adam won a million dollars.

Give thanks is beautiful. I think it needs to grace your Thanksgiving table.

Wishing you nothing but good luck for tomorrow's opening.

I hope Amy is better--glad to read in the comments that she was able to enjoy some of DC.

Eeek on fob! I hope your friend can repair it.

Give Thanks looks great!
