Quilt Cam Rain Check!

You guys pegged it before I did.
 
I honestly thought I could get it ALL DONE today and still have the energy to do Quilt Cam tonight at 9pm.

I really wanted to.  I'm aching to sew...but I'm still not ready to leave for Alaska in the morning, and I'm going to have to get to bed early so that I can get UP in the morning.

It's going to be one of those days tomorrow...we don't get into Anchorage until after 7:30pm Anchorage time...which will be about 1:00 am North Carolina time.

I hope you will understand that though the mind is willing for Quilt-Cam, the body still has much to do to be ready and it just can't fit in with my life today.
 
I am happy to report that all the book orders that came in while I was away in Pennsylvania have been filled and dropped at the post office.  I've taken care of bank stuff, I've been to Fedex, I've washed clothes and taken care of much email and internet stuff dealing with my online calendar.  I am out of gas!

I get home on Tuesday morning, Aug 6th...taking a Red Eye flight home Monday night.  Mickey Depre arrives on Thursday Aug 8th and Collaboration Celebration will be in full swing.

If I can fight back the jet lag -- let's shoot for Wednesday night, August 7th after I've had 24 hours home from Alaskan August Adventure #1.

I wish I could do better ---but I can only do what I can only do!

I would love to have had quilt cam tonight but I'm delighted you are taking care of Bonnie! You give so much to us all the time but you need to take time for yourself. Bravo!!!

Beverley said...

Time for bed Miss Bonnie! We can only do so much and considering your schedule I don't know how you manage. Quilt cam is an added extra to the great blog you update so often so it's appreciated when you can but Miss Bonnie's sleep should come first! Have a great trip, and quilt cam will happen when it happens!

I am exhausted for you, just reading about all the errands, and where you are headed in the coming weeks. Take care of #1 first. Quilt cam will come when quieter times are upon us!

For crying out loud, girl. Put your feet up and get to bed early. We will survive. It will make the next quiltcam that much sweeter. Safe travels!

We fell asleep as soon as the landing gear came up on the way home and woke when they went back down to land! Alaska does that to you..Have a blast good time of year to visit :)

My gracious with a schedule like yours I would already be in the bed. Get some rest if August doesn't work we will be fine living vicariously through all your travels with you. Hope you have a wonderful safe fun trip!

Deb Hartwig said...

I am quilting in spirit! Enjoy Alaska!

Lori Huffman said...

Glad you are taking care of yourself Bonnie. Travel safe and ENJOY!

Vickie Cable said...

Hay,it would have been horrendous to see you fall asleep mid sentence and bang your head on a METAL Singer!!!! We need you rested for travel! Have a wonderful time and show us some Alaskan fabric!

Bev @ kwiltpharm said...

You should be still going strong at 9PM on August 7th-your body will still be 5 hours behind NC time! You will just about get over the jet lag just in time to go back to Alaska! Maybe some melatonin might help reset the body's clock! Have a safe trip and lots of fun at CC, wish I could be there, but am going to my nephew's wedding.

Jennifer said...

There definitely comes a time when everyone has to stop and smell the roses....take care of you.

Judymc said...

Have fun in Alaska! Our Alaskan cruise was in July several years ago and the weather was wonderful. I know you'll have a great time. I'm looking forward to hearing about your adventures!

Sundae Quilter said...

Bonnie, you don't owe us any explanation. WHEN you can host the next quilt cam, we will be there watching. IN the mean time, we wait patiently and you enjoy your life.

Safe travels!
