Wacky Week

I just found out that my Mom has to have another surgery on her leg this coming Thursday. It seems that the infection she has in her bone hasn't cleared up & the doctor wants to remove around 2 more inches from her leg. But first, she has to have some more tests done on Tuesday to make sure that the arteries aren't clogged anymore & I guess they're also going to check her other leg to make sure that one's okay. Could you please say a prayer for my Mom that she makes it through this surgery? I may try to go home this week to be there for her, but with Cassie being in school, it may be hard to do.
Here's my most recent layout. Although it took several days to finally finish it, I'm really happy with the way it turned out. I just love those new Fancy Pants Flourishes....so fun to use!

Now about my wacky week. When we picked up my new car (see previous post), we noticed a few 'chips' in the paint. But upon further inspection, there's more than just a few. So I took it to the dealership last Monday & they had a body shop look at it. In order to fix it, the whole car would need to be repainted! Needless to say, that didn't make me very happy at all! Jim talked to a guy he works with that paints cars & he told Jim that more than likely, it's 'fisheye', which means that the paint was somehow contaminated when they applied it to the car at the factory. Soooo.....our salesperson found us another TorRed Daytona down in Ohio. The only thing is, it didn't have the navigation system on it, but they said we could get it installed. Okay, no problem because I really want the nav system now after getting used to it.

Well......they send a driver to go pick up the new car on Thursday. Friday when we go to pick it up, the first thing we did was check it over really good & what do we find??? A dent in the roof! ARGH! By now, I'm completely ticked off having to deal with all these problems, being without my new car for a week already & just the headaches of everything we're going through! I'm starting to think that maybe I'm not supposed to have a Daytona :( But after they said that this dent will be a much easier fix than repainting the whole car, I agreed to go with this one. Now I just have to wait for them to set up a date to get this dent fixed. I know it's 'just a car', but it's always been a dream of mine to own a nice sports car & I just feel like my dream isn't supposed to be a reality.


Since it's a gorgeous fall day out today, I'm going to spend it outside, doing some much-needed yard work before winter shows it's face (which may happen this week as we're supposed to only have temps in the 40's by the end of the week!). Hope you have a fabulous weekend!

Prayers for your mom for a speedy recovery. I love your layout. I think I will have to add "gothic grandma" to your rolodex card in my file (we were in Carol's swap last year) LOL.
