High/Low - August 29th + Freebie

My LOW for this week was that on last Friday my little family got in a car accident. We were coming home from an amusement park and someone ahead of us stopped really fast. We had to swerve to miss 2 cars and we ran into the cement block on the side headfirst. Luckily we didn't hit ANYONE and none of us got hurt. Just scared us. We were able to drive the van home, but there was some small damage to the front....the grill, the bumper, the lights. We have been without our only working vehicle all week and it is still in the shop. We won't get it back until Tuesday and I am just hoping it doesn't cost too much. My hubby had to get a ride to work and has stayed at work all week - so I've been missing him, worried about our financial situation and just scared. But on the up side - it could have been TONS TONS TONS worse, so I am very grateful to my Heavenly Father for protecting us!

My HIGH for this week is that last week (wow it seems so much longer ago) my hubby spent 3 days in Park City for his work's planning retreat. His boss had given him a 16gb ipod touch as a thank you for his hard work and since he already has an 80gb ipod - my Joey gave the ipod touch to me! I NEVER thought I would actually enjoy an ipod, but I truly do! For the first time, I am actually listening to an audio book and it has totally helped me get through my hard week and even helped me get through cleaning the house - LOVE IT! I haven't been listening to music much lately and so this has allowed me to do that and so much fun!

Another HIGH is that my hubby and I actually got to have a date last weekend. We went to a musical play (not that great, but hey, we were still out together and that was wonderful)! We went with some friends and so it was fun to laugh and talk and just be together!


And I do have a freebie for you this week! My dear SISTER BY HEART, Georgia and I are creating our signature SISTERS BY HEART Kit right now and I have a scatterz freebie for you that coordinates with it! Stay tuned for more news when we get the kit done!

EVERYONE HAVE A GREAT, FUN, SAFE, LABOR DAY WEEKEND!

Yikes! I'm glad everybody is OK. Car accidents can really shake a person up. Stupid drivers, stopping when they aren't suppose to!
