Not a good day

Have you ever had one of those days that goes from crisis to crisis with no time in between? I swear, the kids had less problems when they were kids. David is out interviewing for jobs and he doesn't even have the clothes to do it! When does he come to me? Half an hour before he has to be there. Keri is packing for school but she just ran out to donate blood in a royal huff, and God forgive us, we're counting the days. I love them unconditionally, don't get me wrong. I just need some down time.
I should be upstairs on the LA. I'm going to work on my hour a day quilt till she comes home and then I'll go up. I read Judy L's blog about procrastinating and man, can I identify. I love doing the pantos, and I like custom. It lets me be a little more creative. I know I sound like I'm never up there, but I do get a lot done-really.
I'm going back to work on light duty, starting Tuesday. I can't drive bus yet(the surgeon is reevaluating on the 19th) so they're going to have me on the phones and the radio. Since I'm really not supposed to drive, they're sending a car for me. So this is my last weekend as a full time quilter.
Oh, and I got an email from a customer yesterday that a quilt I did for her got a blue ribbon in her county fair. That made me feel pretty good.
Into the shower I go.

I had to comment about the kids and counting days down. I feel the same way about my daughter. She is great and while I know I shouldn't wish for her "baby" days to end - but I definately can't wait till she starts school and I have some time completely alone.

Congratulations on the Blue Ribbon; be sure to make it down in your C.V.!

Hope that blue ribbon made things a little better today--you helped the customer earn it!

Counting down days will help ease some of the tension. I hope things are going better between all of you.

glad to know your bad day ended on a good note--congratulations for doing such a good job on the quilt to help it earn a blue ribbon. And don't worry--we ALL have days like that with our kids. Even when they are grown and married! At least we don't have to live with them anymore! LOL
take it easy at work!!
