What a day...

No sweet pictures of the baby today but boy what a day it has been. I had planned a not too busy day working from home and waiting for news from my daughter on her first ultra sound on the new baby. But early this morning my boss called to let me know that he was in town for one of his surprise visits...yeh...and he wanted to have lunch downtown. There goes any work in my pj's this morning. So I spent the morning getting ready and figuring out what to wear...just went in nice jeans, a white turtle neck and black boots. The tortilla soup was awesome and the visit was a good one. When I got home the girls had to go to the bookstore so off we went and work had to wait just a bit longer. The bookstore turned into a trip to the office supply store and walgreens. So too pooped to cook and not really hungry I grabbed the girls taco bell and headed home. Finally... home and in my flannel pj's ready to work when my hubby came home. He went to the garage to do something and discovered someone had broken in and taken some of his tools. He's a carpenter so his tools are to him like my vintage linens are to me. So we spent the evening with the police making a report and watching the crime scene guys take finger prints (I have to admit that was pretty neat to watch...just like on tv). Now we need to break the news to my father in law that the second chain saw of his that we borrowed has been stolen! The first was stolen from my husbands pick up a couple of years ago. I finally got some work done tonight but not as much as I had wanted to. I guess the t-shirt quilt I wanted to work on tonight will have to wait until tomorrow night. Well it's off to bed for me now. Let's hope tomorrow is a less hectic day. Oh yeh the ultra sound went great...just one tiny baby moving it's little arm at just 10 weeks! A healthy baby cancels out all the bad stuff that happened today!

Oh my goodness! I’m sorry to hear about your burglary! But I do love your analogy to vintage linens. Puts it in perspective, for sure! I hope they find who did it. And I hope insurance issues are resolved quickly.

And you’re right, a healthy baby cancels out all the bad! Here’s to a better day today! ((HUGS))

Hi Peggy :)

I'm so happy the baby is doing well!

I can't believe you were robbed! I hope they catch whoever did it.

Yes, you did have quite a day. Your conclusion was a good one though. We were burglarized back in the 70s. We got back most of the stuff which was a lot. Even my wedding rings I got back. It's a terrible feeling to walk into the house and see that a whole lot of stuff is just missing.

Wow! What a day! Isn't it great that we don't know today what tomorrow will bring? Yes, the miracle of new life overshadows all the wearisome trials of the day! Bless you!
