I’m feeling just a bit like this right now!
My To-Do list after a trip is always longer than my arm, and EVERYTHING has a deadline.
That’s just the way it is for EVERYONE after a trip, isn’t it?
Not many of us get a vacation to recover from our vacation – we get thrown right into the fray!
I leave WEDNESDAY for Maine!
I thought it was THURSDAY!
No –the retreat starts Thursday, I have to fly on Wednesday.
Yes….this from the brain who nearly forgot leaving myself a pair of pants on Saturday night so I could leave the ship on Sunday morning fully clothed! LOL!
The first thing I do when time is short like this is make a list of what has to happen, and what can be pushed to the next time in between trips.
I spent last night and a bit of early morning time this morning doing this:
20 kits all ready for Peru!
There will be no machine sewing on our Peru trip –it’s a multi-destination tour with more plane flights from place to place while in Peru, so we have to pack light. This little class will happen along our journey, and the students can work on it as we travel.
Can you imagine hand stitching while out in the Amazon? It’s going to be AMAZING!
I’ve also got to get all 12 quilts ready to ship to C&T for photography before I leave if possible, and that means my image logs and all tags have to be up to date and ready to travel on that. I’ll go as far as I can on that – that’s the big one. I only have today and tomorrow to do it. Or go as far as I can on it, at any rate.
They need to arrive in California by Nov 1st –and I won’t have time in between Maine and Washington ((only home for one day for a quick turn around)) and there isn’t time to ship them and get them to California after Washington – I have just a couple days before Peru at that point.
See what I mean?! Someone needs to fire my calendar planner!
Missing these girls!
When you spend a week in close proximity to wonderful quilters, and you stop to realize just how far everyone had to go to get back to their own homes, and now we are scattered all over the USA and Canada ---it was just a wondrous thing that we were able to come together for this wonderful cruise! I hope they have all arrived home safely, luggage intact and accounted for and enjoyed sleeping in their own beds last night!
I know I DID!!
This is Miss Emmy Lou giving me a piece of her mind for being gone so long!
So this is where I am, down to the wire, running crazy and making up for lost time – the story of my life.
There likely won’t be any time for Quilt-Cam until I return home from Peru. There isn’t time – and I apologize! But we will do it as soon as I am able, and we will have LOTS to talk about then!
Happy Monday, Everyone!
