Andrea's Bag and Jill's Bag (and a very bad day)

Good Golly Gertie, everything is a mess at the moment. The boss has been out all week and is having an emergency appendectomy as I write this. What this means is that not only am I doing my job (which I am never through with, ya'll have seen pictures of my office) but I am doing his too. Not only that, but today was my birthday and I had planned to take off at noon, get my hair cut, do some shopping and just have some ME time. Needless to say, my plans went down the drain. Don't get me wrong, I'm not complainin', I'm just 'splainin'. This poor man (who is the best employer anyone could ever ask for) called this morning and said "I'm going to try and get to the store this afternoon, there is too much to be done." I have to tell ya'll, he sounded like hammered sh*t and had been in the emergency room from midnight till 3:00 AM. The foreign doctor that was on duty sent him home without doing any blood work or a CT scan, telling him he had a gastro infection. Dang, I'm a nursing school drop out and I know better than that. After much discussion, I convinced him to call Dr. Yummy not his real name, just really descriptive (Greg's college roomie) who told him to be in his office PRONTO! At first Dr. Yummy thought Greg's appendix had burst, but a scan showed different. He scheduled surgery within the hour.
I tell ya'll all of this to explain why this post is SOOO late. Without further ado, I give you some more Bag Week peeks, the first is a LO done with Andrea's Bag of our Chef Mickey dinner gone wrong and the second is of my oldest son Dave decked out in everything possible camo using Jill's Bag and Bunny's Open Spaces templates. Whew! I think I finally have all of the bag week posts done (this one nearly did me in!), remember to get yours before the end of the day FRIDAY!
I have Grandparent's Day at Wyatt's school tomorrow, and Lilly's third birthday party is Sunday at noon, anyone have any suggestions on when I could possibly fit in any quality Vicki casino time?
P.S. Both Elaines (my boo-boo) should have received their gift certificates from DSO, if not please contact me.

MWAH! Vicki

I'm so sorry your special "me" day for your birthday turned into a heavy work day. I hope your boss is OK. It's a good thing for him that you pushed for a second opinion. A burst appendix can really be trouble.

Hang in there! :)

Man, when it rains it pours. Hope your boss has a speedy recovery & you get some well deserved casino time. I too, am ready for some casino time but will be at least another 3 weeks because I have the grand kids. Happy belated birthday! Enjoy your weekend, sounds busy & fun. Thank you for the generous gift! Hugs, Elaine

Ahhh Man, I am so sorry to have not read that it was the "day of celebration - honoring the arrival of Miss Vicki on the planet." Good thing tho... it is the same day as my DIL, so I will likely remember next year... Aside for the derailed plans, i sure hope it was a good day!

As for casino time... FB has all kinds of slots and such, and just think of all the $$$ you will save LOL. I truly have been a very busy woman, now doing advertising for a Real Estate Office. I kind of got drafted... but it is rewarding to take out the camera and create art out of the listings. Hmmmm wonder if I could get a commission on the ads ;o)

Have a great weekend, whatever you end up doing!
