I'm back, sort of...

Physically I am back from Alabama ~ safe and sound. Mentally, I am still out in the ozone somewhere. We had a great trip and I will try to hit the highlights here on my blog. Since being home I have been SWAMPED! Monday was a recovery day and loads of laundry. Tues I met with one of the teachers regarding the Quest Fest only to find out that all the baskets need to be turned in on Friday (three days away!). How did that sneak up on me? I am still getting in dribs and drabs of donated items from parents and a little money (very little) to help with the cost of the stuff that we still need. She also hit me with the bombshell that she thought about it and decided we really should put the handprint quilt IN at Questfest (after we had decided to do a private auction later). I totally agree with her though, it should be in the Festival but since I am not even halfway through it ~ I'm screwed! I've been working on it like gangbusters the last couple of days ~ when I'm not out trying to get the rest of the stuff for the baskets. I am making progress and I know it'll all be fine in the end. ! Okay off my soap box for now! Thanks for indulging me.

I will get the posts about the trip done when I can. In the mean time all packages (except one) for my give away are finally being taken to the post office today so be on the lookout. I still need one more address and that'll be crossed off my list. A few more errands today and a bit of work at the school this morning and I'm back to work on the quilt. That's my day... So, how was your day?

Wow - what chaos to come home to! Kudos to you for that quilt - that's a lot of work with everything else on your plate with short notice.

You are going to need another vacation after this!!!

Welcome back - you're going to have your hands full for a while!! I'm generally able to get things done in the last hours/days - I guess I work better under "crunch" stress, lol. Hopefully you're the same! We do tend to (sub-consciously?) prioritize our to do lists, so I bet you'll do just fine in getting done what NEEDS to be done!
