Hello all!!!

Have you ever had one of those days where you'd planned your day and then  ended up doing things for everyone else that weren't included in your plans at all?  Well, this was exactly the kind of day I had today!!!  I got up this morning with the intent of reviewing my project tutorial for my debut tomorrow, going to visit and check on my friend (who was released from the hospital yesterday and doing well), and spending the rest of the day crafting and visiting.  However, this is what happened, I got up and my dear hubby couldn't get on the internet on his computer and called me to try to figure out what the problem was (yes, he really thinks I'm his personal technician); of course, I lost hours only to find he was simply connected to the wrong network -- duh!  Next, and I mean with almost perfect timing after getting the hubby back online, my son called and asked me if I could help him with (which actually meant type it for him) his homework, a Powerpoint presentation 23 pages long!!!!  Instead of getting to my friend at around 11 a.m. as I'd told her, I got there at 2:21 this afternoon. And to top it off, my aunt called my cell phone and needed me to pick up her meds from the pharmacy and drop them off to her on my way home from my friend's -- they live on opposite sides of the city!!!  Of course I had to do that, my aunt is 89 years old -- I don't tell her "no, I'm too busy".

Of course, I just became too hysterical to even get frustrated over any of it; I think I should have known this would happen because I was just too much looking forward to today, yesterday!  So, I had a good laugh, shrugged it off and did what I had to do.

I just walked in the door a few minutes ago!  And I had to get here to remind you about my debut tomorrow at Sheila's; I really hope you all join me because I know I'm a wee bit nervous.

Now I'm going to go rush to get my hubby's dinner together, make certain my project tutorial is in order and, maybe, I can get in a few hours visiting with you.  I'm beginning to think I won't get any rest until I get BACK from VACATION!!!   LOL!  But, I still love my family dearly and I can't be upset because I know they would have done the same for me.

Unfortunately, I don't see getting any crafting done tonight and I have another full day tomorrow -- have to get my hair done, clothes packed, Buster back to his sitter's again, straighten up the house before I leave, etc., etc.!!!  Don't you just  hate it when someone/something interrupts your well-laid plans?!  Yep, I'm definitely going to need a vacation after I get back from vacation!!!

I'll be looking forward to seeing you tomorrow before I leave out on Friday morning for vacation!

Hugs and smooches, and...

I'll be seeing you!

I hear you. I was too planning on working with a project today but nothing went well. Tomorrow is another day.
Enjoy your vacation and I will be waiting to see your project at Sassy's.
My debut is the 10th.

Yes the best laid plans...I knew you would be a giver also. Some days I get so tired but I take a day to pity myself and get back on the roller coaster.
I always figure when I get really really old or die I will have time to do nothing.
Remember you are blessed and loved.
I will be back tomorrow to support you my friend. I know you are going to shine as usual and if you don't we won't laugh to hard! (just kidding)
Love to ya

Oh I know what that's like -- only too well. But......I keep telling myself:- every day is a new day! Hang in there, my friend!!

What's this about a debut? Sorry, but I haven't been on much, seeing as life always seems to get in the way! :-)
