The plan was simple: make a card - have lunch - go to work at the library. Just as I started stamping lemons and limes the dishwasher repairman came. I headed downstairs to discuss the problem then left him with the big guy to work it all out. Back upstairs I rechecked the sketch on our Design Team blog because I had forgotten where to put the sentiment. There I spotted Karren's gorgeous lemon and lime card so I scrapped my card and started over using flowers. Soon there was a request from the kitchen.....can you bring down a tape measure?? Sure thing.....then back upstairs to stamping. And then I heard....do you know where the dishwasher manual is?? Yes I do and it seems no one could possibly find it but me......then back upstairs to stamp. And what was all that noise in the cellar? My curiosity got the best of me so down two flights of stairs I go to find the repairman and the big guy looking for clamps, boards and wire.....not good. Then it was back up to the kitchen for another conference on my one year old dishwasher. An incorrect installation had caused problems. Four separate issues would be fixed - while I finished my card. But it just wasn't meant to be. All too soon I got called back down to learn about filters and shut-offs. And then the dreaded "Let's just watch a cycle and see if everything is fixed." Mojo had definitely left the building......
But there's good news:
........my dishwasher is now working great
.......my son showed up with a pizza for lunch
.......freezing rain and icy roads closed the library so I took a nap
And the bad news:
.......I still put the sentiment in the wrong place!
There's great inspiration at Fusion this week! I used the Jar of Love stamp taking my inspiration from both the sketch and the picture. Hope you join us!
