We Are Blessed!

Hope all your hubbies & fathers had a wonderful day today.

Just popping in for a few to keep you updated.  Still no time to craft but I did manage to take enough time to do the Whimsy Blog Hope as they sure have some cute and fun new images and products  Also had to check out the new Elizabeth Bell image of the month at the Digi Bell's site. Just had to get it even though I'm not sure when I'll get to color it or make anything.

We had another little electrical fire last Thursday in the basement with still no clue as to what is going on.  The electrician disabled the circuit breaker that he thought was causing the problem.  Last night while in the bathroom, the overhead light started popping so I immediately turned it off and it stopped.  Will have to wait until tomorrow when he comes back to see what's going on in the bathroom so we aren't turning any lights on in there for now.  Every room now has a smoke alarm, and boy, are those things loud.  We are sleeping with a fire extinguisher by our bed just in case.  There has to be some humor in all of this and you would bust out laughing if your saw our bedroom.

I've always heard challenges come in 3's so I think early this morning was our #3.  We had a God awful hail storm and my Mercedes has more dents than a golf ball.  Not just the top, hood, and trunk but the entire area of the vehicle.  It will need a complete new exterior to make it look like it did before the storm and since it's a 2003 I doubt very much the insurance company will want to pay to get it fixed but we'll see.  Just finished filing a claim on line prior to this post.

Oh how I need a day in the craft room to forget about the world and just play.
Hope ya all have a fun week and I'll be checking in soon.
Love & Hugs, Carol

OMG! I'm almost scared to read your posts! Now the car's been done in by hail?! Well that beats having the house burn down, which is what I'm afraid I'm going to read. Glad that you are sleeping with a fire extinguisher! Keep hanging in there, they're bound to figure it out.

Oh Carol. I was so hoping to read that the electrical problem had been fixed. I have been so worried about you. Sounds like you are taking precautions which is important. I am so sorry you also had to deal with the damage from the hail storm. We once had one and it did the same thing to a brand new truck plus it broke out every window and skylight in our house. I pray that all these bad things come to a end and you can start living a relaxed life again.

Smart thing to arm yourself with a fire extinguisher and lots of smoke alarms! That is aweful about the hail damage too! Fingers crossed insurance is good to you and that the electrical stuff gets fixed!

I sure hope you get your home back to normal soon, all those fires are just to scary, so sorry about your car, hopefully the insurance company will handle the claim quickly. I so hope you get some time to play in your craft room and relax for a bit. Take good care of your self.
