Such Randomness

In the last 48 hours, I have spent about a day with no AC. We were told by the repairman that the capacitor got fried by lightening. Does this happen a lot, ever happen to you? Just seemed like a hard story to swallow. I read in the newspaper that some people are voluntarily going without AC to save money. I can say after involuntarily participating in this science experiment, I don't think I will be doing that. It's hard as the mother of a young child, I hardly ever sit down for very long and that makes it way hotter without the AC.

Yesterday I sliced up my legs shaving, I mean huge chunks of skin were missing. I was bleeding from every joint-knees, ankles. I guess I got a bad razor or something. It's the kind of thing that when I go into my office and look at my surgery certification hanging on the wall I think, seriously?

Here is some color with SC July Kit and add-ons:





Lastly, I was grateful for the responses to the Iraq layout. Some of the responses surprised me, the reactions were very strong, visceral almost. And I'm reminded of what Dave Matthews says about sharing your art/music, he says: "Once you share your art/song, it's not really yours anymore. It can be used and interpreted however the audience wants do to. That is their freedom, just as you had freedom in creating it." So true. I love Dave Matthews, even if he did go to UVA.

Danielle....i agree with stephanie....mach3....Funny i've done that before. Just b/c you are a surgeon doesn't mean that you know what a razor will do with the pressure that you apply to it...lol..I love the layouts...they are great...thanks for you comments on my layout for American Crafts it appears they closed the call on the 21st. Maybe I'll have a chance! lol~

I'll third the mach3 - no other razor. Love the layouts, especially the July one, which I hadn't seen before! Hope the AC gets fixed soon!

Ouch.....looking at your "baby", makes me realize that he is growing way too fast...no baby at all. Change happens before we know it....I guess your shaving incident told you that, huh?

Great Layouts! I loved how you used the "Fragile" with the Sensitive layout. Too cute!

Close To Home said...

WOW! Just adorable work. Ouchy aboutyour legs. Yikes. I hate razors. I wish I didn't have to shave! LOL! I totally agree with you on the AC thing. That's a need, to feel comfortable to do anything some days!

Staci said...

Love those layouts, Danielle! Ugh about the AC! Never had to do that, fortunately, but we were without heat this winter for a few days, and that is probably equally sucky, lol. Sorry about the bad shaving experience, that's never fun to feel like you were in a horror movie ;-) I'm another huge fan of the Iraq layout - so so awesome!

Jenn said...

Your lo's are awesome as always. Sorry about your AC and your legs. Ouch! I loved your Iraq LO.
