Well, not much has gone on this weekend, which I guess could be a good thing.  I've had a lot of time to create cards, but with my nerve problems in my legs, I can't be up on my feet too much, but it hurts to sit, too though.  I feel like a screwed up mess! 

And of course workman's comp isn't making things any easier on me as they still have not paid benefits for the last month now and they are not revealing to my attorneys the reason why. 

I'm trying really hard not to get frustrated as I already feel like I'm being punished enough by being in pain all the time and not able to work, or do things in my day to day life that I used to enjoy doing and a lot of the things I didn't enjoy doing, but at least I could do them.

Anyway, back to something that brings joy & contentment to me.  Stamping!

A Card for our Letter Carrier

Here is a card I made for our mail carrier as someone sent us a letter & there was a remaining balance due on the postage.  The letter carrier left a note/envelope in our mailbox saying they paid 78cents that was due.  The next day I put 78cents in the envelope, sealed it, and put a note on it thanking them for covering the rest of the postage and what package it was for.  Well, after we checked our mail, there was the same envelope in the mailbox still with the 78cents in it with another note that said which package it was from & to not worry about the 78cents, that they went ahead and covered it and there was no need to pay them back.  Well, this day & age, what a nice gesture!?  I thought so anyway.

So, I did what I always do when I want to tell someone how much I appreciate a deed they have done:  I made a card.  Here is the card I made.  I am not going to put it in the mailbox until Monday because I want to be sure our mail carrier is working so they will get the card.
