Watercolor in orange

How can it be Thursday already? The past few days I feel like I have been running around in circles, not accomplishing a whole lot! On the card above I used watercolor pencils on watercolor paper, I added twinkling h20's to the background. The image was torn and distressed and added to the PP and background sheet.

Yesterday I got a call from the insurance company I am applying for life insurance. He told me I was did not qualify for the preferred rate instead the rate would be 4 times more than originally thought. He said my blood work showed elevated liver enzymes where normal was under 65 mine was 165. When I asked what could cause that he got quiet and said well let me read you what it says. He went on to say that the most probable cause was someone who was heavy drinker and had caused significant damage to their liver. I was driving so I pulled over and calmly explained that I do not drink, at this point I had the feeling he has heard that line before. I have pretty much been pregnant and/or breastfeeding for the last 4+ years, and I am not a drinker. My mind immediately goes to the worst, I have liver damage, I am dying. You can imagine how much my husband love my dramatic self right now. I called our Family Doctor and he is going to test me again once they send me my entire results, he said the insurance guy thinks I am a closet alcoholic, great! There are other reasons why it could be that high, but I am really hoping it was just an error. Not something I need, or wanted to worry about. I was just trying to plan for my DH to have money for childcare if something did happen. I am not a very patient person, so I am just going to try to put it out of my mind until I get the new result.


  1. that's the best way to handle this. wait until you hear from a medical professional. it will all be fine. maybe you should design a "special" card for this insurance guy... ;-)
    sending good thoughts your way.

  2. Your card is beautiful, Tanya. Don't you just love it when you know someone doesn't believe what you are saying??? I know it's hard not to worry but try not too and get that test repeated...Sending Hugs
