Lucy-itis Strikes Again!

I'm so not a morning person. I'm retired, I don't even have to do mornings anymore. However, I had a doctor's appointment first thing in the morning on my birthday. I had to have my new knee checked out, as well as a muscular injury obtained in physical therapy. Yeah, I know, who gets hurt in physical therapy? Well, that would be me. Anyway I got up early, chugged my caffeine and threw myself in the shower. Did the hair and makeup in record time too. At that point I was reasonably awake which is quite a remarkable feat! As I got in the car and began the thirty minute drive to the city, I was busy congratulating myself for getting up and ready on time. I kept driving while singing along with the CD.  As I crossed the river I was totally oblivious as I was having such a good time singing along with Jaron to the song, Pray. This song is hysterically funny! I crossed the river into Georgia when it dawned on me, I'm going the wrong way! I'm headed for the mall!!

I'm not supposed to go shopping, I'm supposed to be downtown at the doctor's office in ten minutes. So I’m thinking, ‘Do I go straight ahead through the dangerous part of the city? I think that road goes near where I need to go. I've been that way before it's near the jail and it will look familiar. But what if it doesn't?  Not a good part of the city to be if I get lost.  I could get on the interstate and go backwards a bit, and take the new Interstate - then I know I would end up at the Doc's office.  Of course that might take longer, and I could be late.’

I'm basically a big chicken, so I decided to go back across the river hoping I wouldn't be too late.  It was shorter than I thought despite having to cross the river back into Carolina, and then back across into Georgia again on a different highway. Confusing? Try being an allergic to morning, time challenged, blonde Lucy.  Guess what? I wasn't even late!  How cool is that?  Sometimes I amaze myself.

Oh the song you ask? It's meant to be tongue-in-cheek, you wouldn't REALLY pray for such things of course. I think it is so funny, and Jaron, the singer?  He is so hot!!!!

Pray For You

I haven't been to church since I don't remember when
Things were going great '˜til they fell apart again
So I listened to the preacher as he told me what to do
He said you cant go hating others who have done wrong to you.
Sometimes we get angry, but we must not condemn.
Let the good Lord do His job and you just pray for them.
I pray your brakes go out running down a hill
I pray a flowerpot falls from a window sill and knocks you in the head like I'd like to
I pray your birthday comes and nobody calls
I pray you're flying high when your engine stalls
I pray all your dreams never come true
Just know wherever you are honey, I pray for you
I'm really glad I found my way to church
'Cause I'm already feeling better and I thank God for his words.
Yeah I'm going take the high road,
And do what the preacher told me to do,
You keep messing up and I'll keep praying for you.
I pray your tire blows out at 110.
I pray you pass out drunk with your best friend and wake up with his and her tattoos.
I pray your brakes go out running down a hill.
I pray a flowerpot falls from a window sill and knocks you in the head like I'd like to.
I pray your birthday comes and nobody calls
I pray you're flying high when your engine stalls
I pray all your dreams never come true
Just know wherever you are, near or far, in your house or in your car,
wherever you are honey, I pray for you.

On a totally different note, I finished the last Valentine's Day card with accompanying teabag folder.


 
  • I just used the picture as a guide. I saw this newsprint decorative paper at Hobby Lobby and used it for the strips.
  • I cut them on the paper cutter trying to eyeball the angle (next time I'll use a quilt ruler). 
  • I used my Tombo tape runner on the back of each strip, adhere to a piece of black cs. I alternated the angles - northeast/southeast then northwest/southwest. I used Distress ink to age the edges.
  • Wanted message on the computer then used Distress on that too. The heart stamp (Hero Arts) was colored with Prisma colored pencils.
  • Teabag folder - used Spellbinders Lacy Squares and Hero Arts stamp there too.
