The good, the bad

The bad is that I started the week off with a nasty cold that dd#1 brought home with her over the Thanksgiving weekend from college. Worse than that is a car accident I was involved in. I have a little car, which did not fare too well against a large suv. But no one hurt and I'll get it back next week hopefully all fixed up. I'm grateful that we have a third car here for the kids to drive, which I am driving, it's a nice little car, but here's the frustrating thing, we bought it used and cannot get the car alarm removed without great cost. I am so used to not having a car alarm, that whenever I go to get in it I forget to deactivate the alarm and there's a big commotion: driveway, foodstore, park, library, school, quilt shop. Very embarassing.

The good is that I won Carrie's www.apassionforapplique.blogspot.com , giveaway! How terrific! Thank you Carrie!

My friend Olivia www.oliviaadventures.blogspot.com/2009/12/very-old-christmas-eve-tradition-in.html.blogspot.com , is having a giveaway (Blogspot is giving me a hard time about linking this, click "go to blog homepage and then down to December 3rd's post). Olivia lives about 10 minutes from my house and lately has been showing some very darling grandbaby pictures on her blog. I love grandbaby pictures on blogs.

I'm glad you weren't hurt in your car smash. Mal's car has an alarm and I'm always forgetting about it aswell. It's so embarrassing

Thanks goodness you weren't hurt, Lynn! Car alarms have their way of focusing your attention, don't they? When we bought our now 10+ year old car, they forgot to tell us it was so endowed....... not to mention how to shut it off!
