So as some of you might know there was a question about one of my files possibly being tweaked and used to win a contest. I do have a disclaimer at the top of my blog about such things. I did have one MB member ask me one time about using a file for a contest and I told her to go right ahead. I was very upset over the whole thing but ya know what.....after a day like today I decided "ya know what.....in the big scheme of things.....it really doesn't matter". Matter of fact I just emailed a dear MB friend of mine (LacyGilbertson) with this exact quote!
I had the garage sale today and it went great! I was able to get the new Kodak 5100 printer that I have been eying for almost to months now! And I still have money to get a new cart or two at next weeks sale! JUST HOW COOL IS THAT?? *and if ya don't think it is cool just lie to me and say it is! HA HA HA HA*
ALSO! Today was the big SHIRT day!! LOL For those of you who don't know, my DD was getting a car today. She didn't know about the car and my sister made me promise not to tell her because she wanted to surprise her. Well I had to tell someone about it because I was just busting at the seams! So of course I turn to my cricut sisters and tell them. BUT.......my DD loves to be sitting here when I am reading the MB because she always wants to know if Softbrn posted anything *DD finds Soft just absolutely hilarious and thinks Soft needs to move here!* so I couldn't say car. The code word became SHIRT. The whole thread ended up being rather humorous as people were trying to make references to the car but without giving it away that it was a car!
The car is a 1994 Chrysler LeBaron, it needs a paint job some kinda bad and a dent or two taken out, it also has a busted tail light that is fixed with red tape at the moment. Maybe not the first choice for a teenager. But you see this is a very very special car........it was my mother's car. My mother passed away in 2001 and this car is the one that my daughter remembers going places with grandma in. So to my daughter the paint and the few dings mean nothing to her. That girl is sooo sentimental! I have no idea where she gets that from! *giving an innocent look* My sister and brother in law got new tires for the car, my nephew put in a pioneer stereo system with cd player to prepare it for my daughter. Also they told me to check and see how much it will cost to get the tail light fixed and they will pay for it *I truly am blessed*.
Here are the pictures I was able to take. I had ran in the house to get the camera so I didn't get pics right away. But my daughter said "YOU'RE PLAYIN.......STOP PLAYIN.........STOP PLAYIN.....DON'T PLAY WITH ME". This first one is right after my sister told my daughter that she brought her grandma's car and it sunk in that indeed the car was hers! Oh she cried!! She had a hard time trying to stop crying.
The next pic I think she was starting to compose herself. My sister had to tell her several times "yes, it is for you....now sit down and see how you like it".
Finally my daughter was able to get in the car and was able stop crying and smile. As you can see by the HUGE smile in these last two pictures she was absolutely thrilled!!
So in the whole scheme of things I got to spend a wonderful day with my friends and family and have excitement beyond imagination.......So I just think, as I told Lacy......SERIOUSLY HOW CAN ANYTHING TOP EVERYTHING SO WONDERFUL AS TODAY! Well maybe one more thing can.......a nice hot well deserved bubble bath! *SMILE*
