Milton the Moose~~

Hmmmm, I THINK it's Milton! This is one of my last Thanksgiving cards, had thirteen of them this year. Now on to Christmas, EEEEK. So..........not a good day here. Up @ 5:30, hop out of bed ready for the gym, but first I need to feed the "kids." Well, it's dark out @ 5:30, so when I pounded into the living room, I promptly fell over my bag of copics that I had left on the floor the previous evening. BANG, right on my shoulder, and that should have been a clue TO GO BACK TO BED! But to the gym, then to the bank to make a withdrawal, and lo and behold, my debit card is missing. AARRGGHH. So I went back home, checked the balance, and sure enough, I used it on Sunday to download some MP3's. I spent HOURS tearing this house apart (not that it's that big, Frodo would have a hard time living here) no debit card. AARRGGHH! Get the mail~~letter from a lawyer, about a house I have not owned in FIVE years, and a husband I have not been married to for SIX years. And then I find out that my fave show "Revenge" is not on tonight! Now I am all achy and thinking that the gym is out for tomorrow..........OK, enough whining. My image is High Hopes, colored w/copics. I'm entering this into the following challenges:

I hate to end this on a sad note, but if you follow a lot of blogs you might be familiar with Katie Renz, who has been bravely battling stomach cancer. Sadly, she died a few days ago, so please say a prayer for her young children and husband. I lost a husband many years ago during the holidays, when my children were very young, and so my heart aches for this family. They will need every prayer they can get..................CJ
