What a week!

Quick post.

I am slowly getting the shop set up and looking like something more than a jumbled disorganized mess.

I wasn't having Thanksgiving but now my sister's entire family is sick and they will not be better by Thursday which means I either have it here or it gets canceled. Only problem with canceling is Dan's parents will still want to come down and Abby invited her boyfriend plus it is Adams Birthday with Abby's on Friday. To top that off I had the guys bring all the Christmas boxes up before I got the call from my sister. They won't be gone by Thursday. What a mess!! I could handle having just my little family of 5 here and cooking for them. They wouldn't expect a clean house given all that is going on but the in-laws are a different story all together.

To top that off, the Huskers won on Saturday which means they will play in the division 12 championship game scheduled for Sat. the 5th at 7p.m. That is when I had the open house for the village scheduled. I now have to pick a new date for that and unfortunately, there isn't a good option. Poor Dan, he has gone to so much work to make the village a wonderful place to visit and now it might not be visited by many. Oh well, it'll all work out I'm sure.

Adam and Amy both got home from their trips in one piece although Amy was sick again on the plane and I did end up taking her to the Dr. She had a sinus infection. She is better now though. They did not win a pacemaker award but they did get 8th place in the best of show catagory and 6 of them, Amy included, earned personal awards also. Adam thought Vegas was a wonderful place where time has no meaning and the girls are all beautiful. I'm glad he had a good time, he deserves it. Beyond that....I don't want to know.

I am making some progress on my stitching but I need to get some things done this morning before heading to the shop so no picture. Today I tackle the work area. I have about 6 framing orders already that need doing but right now there is no doing them till I make it workable.

I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday and I hope to do a better post next weekend. I also see I have reached that 50 followers number so I need to work on the giveaway too. I haven't forgotten.

Happy Thanksgiving and thanks so much for stopping by!

Oh Julie, just take a deep breath, it will all work out! If you can't accomodate everyone on one date for the village you may just have to have a couple of casual dates? All of Dan's hardwork will not go unnoticed, it will be up until Jan 6 or so right?? Glad kids are home safe and sound, I know you worry! Good luck with the shop..anxious to see it Saturday if I make it!

Take a long deep breath. You are doing what I do to myself......get myself overwhelmed. Make yourself a list, tackle one thing at a time, prioritize and it will be fabulous. Your family it there to see each other and enjoy the fellowship....not to look for cobwebs. Happy Thanksgiving.

With all that happening how could you make any stitching progress? :) Hats off to you! And good luck however Thanksgiving turns out.

Maybe I could loan you John to make your dinner...he has already started on the pies...(5), the ham, the broccoli and the 22# turkey is nearly defrosted. Hmmm on second thought, nope.
Great seeing you the other day and looking forward to stitching Saturday.
