Hurry up and wait

I feel like there is so much to get done lately, but then I have to wait for test results from the doctor to make more plans so that life is a "Hurry up and wait" game.  Some things seem to be going by so fast while others seem to be taking forever.  Then again, life seems to short and unpredictable.  After working a night shift on Sunday I attended an inservice on Monday morning and then stopped at Cosco on the way home.  After packing my car with fresh strawberries, raspberries and blueberries I heard some commotion a couple of cars down where an elderly woman 90 years old fell face first in the parking lot carrying her smoothing to the  car.  She slashed her nose and it was bleeding like crazy and she skinned her knee and hand.  Luckily her daughter had a washcloth in the car and she was able to apply pressure, the store got her an ice bag.  I stayed by as a medical person until the ambulance arrived.  Her daughter drove her to the hospital where I think she probably will have received several stitches to the upper part of her nose/forehead area.  She may have received a CT scan of her head since she was getting a rather large lump on her head too.  I felt so bad for her, but the staff of the store was very helpful.  I'm sure she felt like Humpty Dumpty.

For my first card, I made a fall card using a beautiful saying from TLC, Create about falling leaves.  My second card uses this weeks Merry Monday Sketch and an image from Birdie Brown along with sentiment from TLC, Create.
