The Dreaded "S" Word ( Just a vent)

**** Venting - nothing stitching related so feel free to skip if you want ****

While listen to the radio this morning while DH was getting ready for work they mentioned that the forecast was calling for 6 inches of the white stuff. It is supposed to hit tonight/early tomorrow morning. I am so not ready for snow. I am really worried that I will not be able to drive in it again this year. Last year on November 18th my Nana passed away, on the 21st was her funeral. We all got dressed and was in the truck on the way to Augusta when we had a pretty nasty car accident. Needless to say that we ended up missing my Nana's funeral and I did not get back into another car until all of the snow was off of the ground. Even after all of the snow had melted I was still quite anxious and had panic attacks for months from being in a car. This last month the panic attacks have been a bit less but not completely gone and now the snow is coming again and I am scared out of my wits.

I have not driven my truck since the accident, it has been sitting in my driveway for almost a year now. I so want to get rid of it but DH is having a hissy fit and wants me to get over it and drive the truck again this winter. I think he is out of his bloody mind because there is no way I am ever getting back into that truck again. Sometimes I just wish he was a bit more understanding. I really don't want to be trapped in the house for 6 months but the thought of being in a car with snow on the ground really freaks me out. Heck I still can't get into a car if it is raining.

So Sick

Ugg , I have been sick with pneumonia the last couple of weeks. I have finally gotten to the point where I can get out of bed for more then 10 minutes at a time. I am so sick of feeling like I can't draw a good breath. Anyways there hasn't been much on the stitching front, I did pull this out of my WIP bag this morning it is Scared Silly by Birds of a Feather. I figure I will take it back to bed with me and do a bit of stitching on it. There really isn't much left to do before it is finished - some wording and the pumpkin. Maybe I will get lucky and have a finish by next week - that would be nice :)

A Finish :)

Sorry for the crooked scan. Well Futurecast is final finished, it took 27 hours to complete her. You can click on her to see a bigger picture. I have another one to do, my friend Kelly came over the other day while I was finishing off the beads on the dragon and fell in love with the design. Kelly wants her's done in green.
