Last week was super busy. I feel a little like I’ve been running to try to keep up only to get further behind. Usually I have things together but a few later days of childcare, extra company a couple nights and Hubby being gone is really catching up. I also think somethings that I would normally do on a day to day basis got shoved aside over the last month due to my foot surgery. I would have things that needed to be taken down to the basement but knew I was suppose to take it easy with my foot so I put them off. Then Hubby hasn’t been around to take them so they pilled up. Carver was sick again this week too.
Finally over the weekend I made a huge effort to get everything back in place and going again. That left not a lot of sewing time but that’s okay. Having those other things finally caught up is going to be so helpful and appreciated over the upcoming week.
I did feel a little bit bad on Sunday when Kalissa called me and asked if I’d watch Carver while they ran to Waterloo to Home Depot…I said I would if she really needed me too but….I really wanted to tackle the LONG to do list. Carver was feeling all the way better so I didn’t think it was necessary for me to keep him otherwise I would have. I started feeling really bad about not keeping him then Kalissa sent these pictures of him.
He was having the time of his life.
I quit feeling guilty after that. He’s having so much fun!
Anyway…I did get this done…..it’s the baby quilt that I need to get finished and sent to Quiltmaker.
Next up I need a backing, machine quilting and a binding. I’m hoping to complete that this week and have it in the mail next week. I love writing a “what I’m working on” post on Mondays. Typically I state what my goal is and honestly, I think back to that goal periodically throughout the week and work to accomplish it. Goal setting is great motivation for me.
I’m writing this post Sunday evening. Hubby is working but I had to call him and tell him that there is a leak under the sink and needs to come home and fix it at some point. Dare I hope he’ll be home for supper? All week it’s been at least 9 pm before he got home. They are getting closer to finished every day that passes though. The older I get, the harder it is to have him gone.
That’s my week in review and preview of what’s coming up. To see what others are working on, check out Patchwork Times.
