It's that time of year. Well, yeah, it's summer - but that's not what I'm talking about. It's the mad rush to get CHA projects done. That and regular life. I can barely see the floor in my already small scraproom. My computer desk? Can't see the surface. Everything revolves around "I've gotta get this done...I've gotta get that done...". I warned my hubby a month ago this time was coming. I think he forgot. He rented some DVD's this weekend. So my life has pretty much been like this...
Thursday - take son to the river for photos for CHA projects
Friday - take photos of daughter for more CHA projects. Work on project no. 1 (meanwhile kids are at home - so everything is subject to interuption). Pack altered items and cards for mailing. Pack another card for mailing. Mail comes - got a magazine that had my projects in it - made scans (and couldn't resist looking thru at all the creations). Gee, where did the day go? Hubby home. time to take a long break and watch a movie. Hubby gets called out. Keep watching movie. Hubby comes home - rewind the movie to where he last saw. Read magazines while he watches what was replayed. that makes it seem like a really, really long movie! Prepare for a class to teach the next day. Wiped out.
Saturday: Up and at 'um. Teach altered project. Return home. Start on project with photos of son. Finish project! (yeah). Where did the day go? Time to watch movie no. 2. Retreat to my bedroom to veg on new bed. Son asks "why aren't you working, mom?" Banish son from bedroom. Okay - not really. A little bit of Trading Spaces and I'm wiped out again but I did have some cool ideas on repainting our bedroom furniture.
3. Sunday - church, then home. Back to work. Gee - I can't even remember what I worked on and that was just yesterday. Took a late nap! Worked till the wee hours.
4. Monday - finish projects left over from last night. Start new project which ended up getting re-done two times. Taking a much needed break to blog and then shower. Yes, it's after 5 and I haven't showered although the dog took a dip in dd's blow up pool.
5. Note to self: Self - prepare and mail off projects to two publications. Don't forget! Now if I would just remember to read my reminder.
