Still in the studio.....

Woke up yesterday morning and headed back to the studio for some more creating. These are two more canvas that I made.
Yesterday was such a beautiful, sunny day and I feel kind of guilty because I really didn't get out and enjoy it like I should have. I spent half the day in the studio and the other half watching a movie, playing on the computer and just hanging out. We joined Jami and Mike after golf for Happy Hour up at the club and sat outside for a couple hours.
Late last night our phone rang and woke us up. Those late night phone calls usually mean bad news and it did. Bre was calling tears to tell us that they had been out for the evening and left the kids with a babysitter. The kids were in bed and the babysitter had fallen asleep on the couch when the downstairs toilet overflowed......for 2 hours!!! When they walked through the front door and got to the dining room the water was over the top of Bre's bare feet. So they worked feverishly to vacuum as much of the water up as possible and called their insurance company. The cleanup company arrived at 1am and worked until 6:30am pulling up all the flooring and setting up fans around the house. They were returning later this morning to continue working. The sad thing as the kids have been working so hard to get their place looking nice and now this happens. But they will get all new flooring so that will be nice. Meanwhile, the grandsons are pinging off the walls cause they are stuck playing in a small area in the living room while all their toys are in the garage drying out. A big mess! Thank goodness for home insurance. Needless to say, I didn't sleep much last night. Today we get to babysit Sofia while Hanna and Jami go see Snow White at the Hale Theatre and then out to lunch. Of course we will be glued to the TV to watch the Huskie's play at 2pm today in the NCAA tournament. Hope all you have a wonderful weekend.

Nancy you have such a fun blog!!! I LOVE your canvas'. It was well worth staying inside for that. I'm so sorry to hear about what happened to Bre and the kids! I would have freaked out at the sitter! Anyway have a great week!

Mom I want the clock print..I LOVE that one! Im finally in bed at 9;30, the kids have had their bath and are sound asleep in bed. We have about 8 giant fans running downstairs so hopefully the noise will make the boys sleep in. We are praying that things will move along smoothly and quickly. Love you!
