Giveaway Week on Everything Etsy

Yesterday I was out of the office.  I spent the day with my husband at the V.A. Clinic while he continued the process of having his shoulder evaluated and treated.  It was a nice, crisp, sunny fall day.  At least it looked like a nice day from the 2nd floor window in the Orthopedics Department.  First nurse of the day, "Welcome!  We are experiencing about an hour long delay in our schedule today.  I apologize.  Please have a seat." 

On a positive note, there's nothing like being in a building full of veterans to make a girl feel a little young ;).  On a not-so-positive note, my hubby's shoulder injury happened nearly 11 months ago.  He got back home 9 months ago.  He just saw the Orthopedic specialist yesterday.  Big sigh . . .  I'm not going to comment on the rate of speed at which soldiers returning from combat shuffle through the V.A. system.  Nor will I speak of the amount of paperwork attached to an injury sustained in a foreign country by a soldier during wartime.  Let's just say this:  You know how long that form is to get your driver's license renewed when none of the information actually changes and the line you have to wait in just so they can tell you that your new (same as the old) license will arrive in the mail in 6-8 weeks?  Yeah . . . Count your blessings people.

Ergo, Monday was not a good day to be out of the office.  Especially when that Monday was the kick-off of Giveaway Week at Everything Etsy.  So today, I will do my best to catch you all up to date.

Here's the scoop on Giveaway Week over at Everything Etsy:
