Sickness and Shopping
I am surrounded by sickness!
I am sure that's a line from a play or movie or something. Doesn't it sound dramatic? "I AM SURROUNDED BY SICKNESS!"
I could just be imagining that it's from something- I do that, often. I'll say something that sounds horribly dramatic and think it's from some Academy Award winning performance- but it turns out it's just a bad line from my tv-movie-of-the-week-style life.
So, yeah- I got sick. It was dramatic. I know how to sell a cough to the balcony.
I ended up needing to go to visit the DOCTOR. I had a sinus infection. And I had to have a shot. Which, when they asked me if I was going to be okay getting the shot- I was like, 'Yeah, sure.' Shots don't bother me.
What I learned is: SHOTS don't bother me, as long as I can see where the needle is going.
So, after a shot....some pills....and a (too small) bottle of fantastic liquid medicine- and lots of rest, I was ready to reenter society.
Saturday, I went to DEMO DAY at My Heart's Fancy- made a fun card in the shape of a birdhouse, using some new dies, Mr. Holtz's new SPRING Distress Ink colors, and that fun 'kissing' stamps technique. Which, I read a tutorial about in a magazine, recently and really wanted to try- but forgot about it until Saturday morning.
Headed up to Jo-Ann yesterday- in the rain. It was great- there was hardly any traffic, so the drive was fast and relaxing. It's amazing how relaxing a drive to Jo-Ann can be, when you don't have to spend the entire drive honking, screaming and waving your hands at other drivers.
What did I see when I entered the Papercrafting Aisle at Jo-Ann?
50% off! Half off nearly everything in these holy aisles.
Two new sets of Spellbinders! FITTY OFF!
The Tim Holtz 'Old Jalopy' Die- 10 bucks! (No clue what I'll do with it?!)
I GOT A NEW, big-ass Fiskars paper trimmer! Huge! With a wire to show exactly where it'll cut- FITTY OFF!!!
and I picked up lots of little things (ALL *HALF* OFF!!!) that I'd kinda wanted/needed- such as:
ANOTHER PACK OF MINI-MISTERS!
A PAIR OF CUTTER BEES!
...and a few other odds 'n ends- but that's the highlight.
So what's the purpose of this story?
When you get sick, you sometimes NEED to go to the doctor. Then, you go to Jo-Ann and buy anything you want....
