What a Day this Has Been!

So, is anyone else thinking about Brigadoon?  And I probably am in a rare mood, too…It’s been a crazy day.   Mike came home from the post office this morning with the bill from Jon’s trip to the ER.  Holy cow!  I see why they don’t tell you what you owe while you’re there; when they send you the bill, they’re hoping you’ll have to make another trip in when you have the heart attack.  If I had known they were going to use the magic golden stitches, I would have sewn him up myself.  And, of course, insurance is a joke.  To have something we can afford, the deductible is outrageous (more than this bill) – and, being the healthy family we are, we never hit it.  Wait – we did get there one time.  Except that we got a letter saying, “Oh, too bad for you.  The new year just turned over.”

That’s how the day started.  Fun, right?  But I am very thankful that Mike and I, the boys and all our extended family are quite healthy.  We’re very blessed!

Here’s a great technique I learned from my friend Diane Oliver.  It’s a “faux brayer” technique, and will be one of the techniques we’ll cover on the 31st at the next class.
