Trip to the ER and a New Collage




Yesterday was a bit of a long day.


I think my heart was trying out for Dancing with the Stars:
first the tango, *stop*, then the Paso Doble, *stop*... wait for the judges... waltz!

It was pretty darn scary. Paddles were mentioned. Double-scary. 
I was totally like, " ixnay on the addles-pay!"


Anyhow, things calmed and nothing life-threatening occurred and now I'm waling around with a 24 hour EKG to keep an eye on my ticker.


Looks like a white cami from a distance.


Not so much up close. I see all the special heart guys on Monday and we'll figure it out. 
What a day.

But then the mail came and look at the pretty I got. It was like getting a hug from my Mom-in-law on a day I really, really needed it. Thanks, Mom!


But enough about me, here's some pics of a collage I made:


It has lots of gorgeous texture:

In spite of a day that would have seen most people reduced to tears, you share photos of you smiling and looking almost relaxed.

You amaze me.

Your art inspires me.

And your new quilt is gorgeous. Enjoy the warmth it brings to you.

Jeez, woman!! You have the most amazing grace to be SMILING with all of that!!! What an exciting day...but wouldn't you rather just be a stunt double in a Tom Cruise movie? :-)

You make me feel so guilty woman! Here I am - with a sore back and bloated ankles but with something amazing coming at the end of it and I'm acting like some drama queen to all my loved ones. Honestly - you should see the amount of tea that's been made on my demands and when they grumble I lay back and rub my belly while putting on the puppy dog eyes! There's you - rocking it in a heart monitor and still smiling, producing amazing art and just generally being, well, amazing!

I should buck up my ideas... but first a few more cups of tea ;)

p.s - the quilt is gorgeous!
