Where did the week go?

Ok, I know it is always hectic when you get back from vacation but this week was the kicker!
I got through my first girl scout meeting.....barely. Em was home sick Tuesday and then guess who got the stomach bug going around....yup - me on Tuesday afternoon on the way to pick up Aidan from school. Not fun but I felt better Thursday for bowling. I did manage to do the boy scout roundup on Wednesday night too.
Today I am popping into work to do the fun bill paying and catch up my check register before helping out with the sale for a few hours.... then go pick up kids from school. Play date this afternoon for the kids so I can meet with my co-leader and plan meetings for girl scouts. A busy weekend of working the sale at work. Is it terrible that I am actually looking forward to working with Greg at a slow (post sale) store on Tuesday and Wednesday next week? I hope to sit in one of the chairs up front when there are no customers and do some slow stitching =)

I finally got a few stitches in yesterday. This is Midget block 26 - Peach-Lemon-Grapes. I hope to get two blocks done next know with those slow days at work =)

Think I can squeeze in some orange fabric play this evening? I told the kids Mommy needs to play with the sewing machine while dinner is in the oven tonight (it was crying in there yesterday from no use in over 2 weeks, I swear!). I hope to make the two sampler blocks.... if there is no post tomorrow you know the machine is still crying =).

Glad you are feeling better. We've had a tummy bug do the rounds at our work. Great fabrics in your midget block

Stomach? Ugh - not,the way to try to get back into the swing of things when getting back from vacation! Sure hope your machine isn't lonely any more.

Oh dear. Added to the regular post vacation rush, all that extra would have just been enough to push most people over the edge. Glad you made it through. Hope it slows down soon.
