Do you have to wait until you have the insurance statements before you do anything with them?

Yep, some of them have gone through the insurance already and some have not so trying to sort out which is which.

And... we are about to meet our deductible which means they will pay a higher %... but some went through ins before others... and we paid $1,800 before it all began... anyways, DH will have to call next week and get it all sorted out.

In the mail, I got a stitching computer program I want to try.
I also got a couple of pieces of fabric just to have on hand (I am slowly trying to build up a bit of a fabric stash. Some of my stitchy friends literally have cupboards full. I don't really want that much! - nor to do I have space to store it. But I would like to have some pieces on hand so that if I go to start something new, I don't have to wait on an order of a piece of fabric before I can start it.) I bought something called plum blossom - which is rather more pinkish in colour than the purplish it looked on the screen, something called wood violet which is a gorgeous purple I can't wait to find the right pattern to use on it, and something new to the online store called fairy dust - which looked on the screen to be something of a shimmery ivory, but which has turned out to be yellow. Quite close in colour probably to the old SU! barely banana, but a deeper shade of that colour, with a little more warmth to it.
I got this pattern: Be Strong - Cross Stitch Pattern - 123Stitch.com and the special threads for it.
I got this tag die: Sizzix Bigz Die - Tags #3 - 123Stitch.com That purchase is Stacy's fault.
And I bought some of these to try: Sulky Blendables 12 Wt Thread The 12 wt. is supposed to be the same thickness or so as 2 strands of DMC regularly used in stitching. I love the blended colours look. Overdyed threads are usually at least 4x the price of DMC (DMC is 49c for I think 8 yards?, overdyeds are usually only 5 yards and start at about $2 and definitely go up from there!). At 2 strands per stitching length, DMC therefore gives you 24 stitching yards, and an overdyed only 15 yards. By comparison, these are HUGE spools at 330 yards. One spool is almost a lifetime supply of a colour. So I want to try them. I have bought several monochromatic patterns, and have several on my wishlist. I think overdyed threads make the pattern more interesting. They are also nice for stitching things where you want colour variation, but don't really want to have to do a stitch here, a stitch there kind of thing - like sand, ocean water etc. Anyway, I bought mostly Christmassy colours (Red Brick, Christmas Trio, Vintage Holiday and Rosebud Sweet). If I like the thread, I will probably buy them a couple at a time and eventually acquire the whole collection. I have plans to experiment with the design program and the threads and maybe design my own patterns for the kidlets Christmas ornaments for next year. We'll see. Experiment is the operative word in that equation.
Lilbro also took me to a stitching store I recently heard about on the stitchy board. I was shocked that we were able to get there in about 15 min. I got my magnetic board - not the colour I would have preferred, but I have it! It is this one: Nordic Needle: Designer Magnet Board with Stand & Magnets - Aqua and I also bought a pattern there: Counted Cross Stitch Flower Panels by John Clayton I bought the Fuchsia.
And I think that was enough for one day.
Are you sorry you asked?

No offense meant, but when I hear all you guys talk about your medical stuff, I am so very, very grateful to be Canadian.

Are you adding a bathroom or just re-doing the current one?

That's okay, Kelly. I have the exact same reaction when I listen to my Canadian and British friends talk about their countries.

I think God knew what He was doing when He "set the exact times and places where they should live."

I am grateful for two bathrooms when one of the kids plugs one, but not happy when it comes to cleaning them.

Doing okay. I mean, it's reality. On the one hand, I can see that it affects him, but on the other hand, we're pretty "realistic" people. We know that he could not have done anything. Even one of the police reports said it was unavoidable and not his "fault" fault. On the other hand, we grieve for the family.

The hardest part is that in speaking truth "the kid was laying on the ground" it always makes people think we are trying to malign the kid. We're not. We don't know why he was laying there--assume it was just that he fell over when the truck dodged him--but the fact is, our car would have had front damage if he was crouching or standing. Zero front damage. Therefore, he was laying on the ground like Kevin saw. But for some reason, people just keep assuming that we are trying to say something about the boy's character or intelligence when we say that. We're not, and that really gets old.

yes, its a shame that some people are that way.
I was hoping there was some kind of closure for you all and the other family. but, it doesn't sound like its any time soon.

Not yet, no. We know that the boy's father requested our insurance amounts. That usually means a lawsuit is forthcoming (as in almost every time).

So... we wait. It'll be a VERY long process.
