Happy Easter, goodbye awful week

The good: Today was 87-degrees with sunny blue skies.  I spent the day printing in the studio and Jake got to play disc-golf :) But as nice as today was, I can't wait for the week to be over. 

The bad: We've been dealing with some crazy family illnesses this week.  I have an uncle in very serious condition in ICU and both of Jake's grandmothers have been in the hospital (one is out now, one is being released tomorrow).  At dinner tonight Jake got a phone call that his mom was in a head-on car accident and was being taken to the hospital.  We hear that she's going to be released later tonight and that it's likely nothing too serious.  I didn't think one week could have this much drama and intensity.

The plan: We're going home to spend time with our families on Saturday and then coming back for our yearly Easter dinner with friends on Sunday. Next week will be better and I'll hopefully regain some focus!

Wow what a week! Luckily you have lots of great things to look forward to coming up! The stationary show is going to be awesome and now you have a lean mean printing husband-wife team to crank lots of great designs out for it.

(also I noticed you have a REAL lightswitch in the studio now! a small victory, but still an important one!)

hang in there!,

Rachael, I am so sorry to hear about all that is going on with your family! I will be sure to include you in my bold prayers! My sister went into respiratory failure on Wednesday night. We are hoping she can come off the ventilator tomorrow. In the meantime, we can both enjoy a beautiful Easter day! Best wishes being sent your way!!!
