Today Has to Be a Better Day

I think my family experienced Friday the 13th a week late.  We have not had rain here in several weeks, and we desperately needed it.  We finally got some yesterday (and we got quite a LOT in a short time period).  I know that I should be so thankful for the rain, but it turned out to be a bit of a curse for us.

My sweet mother-in-law slipped and fell on a wet spot on her kitchen floor (her dog had been out in the rain and left a nice puddle on the floor), and broke her hip yesterday.  While I was at the hospital in the waiting room during her surgery, I got a phone call from my darling husband saying that he had been in a car accident on his way to the hospital (thanks to some hydroplaning on the highway because of wet roads) and that his car had been totaled. Fortunately, he wasn’t injured other than just bruising and some sore ribs.  After all of that, my children probably grew very tired of my frequent phone calls checking in on them.  🙂  Surely, today has to be a better day, right?!?

Here’s another card I made for the Convention display boards.  I used the Tag It set, and the I Am Me dsp collection.
