The BIG Push

Well, we are still preparing for all kinds of things. My daughter as I had mentioned before is going to England. She will be leaving this coming Monday. It is pretty exciting, but I beleive she is getting pretty nervous. It is a very long trip. I know from her itinerary that she has some pretty long layovers, plus she has never flown before. She would not even go to Vegas on her 21st birthday as she did not want to fly. So, that is a big deal in the coming week. I will probably be a basket case that day and then until she lands and is safely at her husbands house.

Then the next issue is my other daughters graduation party next Sunday. We started sending out invitations today - I know, I know, running a little late on those, but as you read about my life in the coming years, you will get use to it - anyone else that joins our family does. We are NOT planners. Some of the family it bothers more than others, but it is not a surprise.

To add to the mix we were supposed to get new carpet in the living room and our bedroom next week, so I cleared out the living room last weekend thinking I would clear out the bedroom and master bath this weekend - but no - true to the no planning part, the installers wanted to install tomorrow and Friday. Even though I love the idea that I will have new carpet this coming weekend, it put a rush on an already busy week. But oh well, that is my life.

One good thing, since my house will be spotless due to taking everything out and replacing only the furniture this coming weekend, I think I may see if I can catch a ride to a stitching Christmas party that I thought I would have to miss due to this carpet install and graduation party. I believe I am going to need the time with my friends before my crazy week starts back up. The knick knacks can wait until Sunday to be put up - right?

I am almost finished with a JBW design - French Country Squirrel - I was going to make 2 and give them to the 2 girls in my office that feed the squirrels that climb the fire excape stairs and come to the windows. But then the office is doing a dirty santa exchange, so I thought I would wrap it with a starbucks gift card and let them fight it out. I will hope they are fighting for the picture, but they always fight it out for starbucks cards, so I will never know. It will depend on who is duking it out. I think I will finish it out as a flat-fold.

Oh, I got my floss usuage chart for the SAL I signed up for at the Heaven and Earth board. I had kinda forgotten about it, so when I got the email I almost thought I had won something or someone had RAK'd me, but then I was like - oh yeah - but it is so,so pretty. Here is a link - it is a Quick Stitch of just the faces even though I would have loved to stitch that dress :)

I am so looking forward to working on it.

Well, I think this was long enough, and here I thought I would not have enough to say when I started this blog.

See ya next post.
