CC - great list - love reading yours!! Enjoyed the "go over budget" - never saw that as a planned thing to do!! LOL - I know that's not what you meant!!

Donna, of course you can list things that you have to do at work!! Makes sense to me.

Liane - I posted pictures of my crocheted leis in one of my albums - if you want I can figure out the directions for you!!

I took a lot of pictures today of my completed costumes, the spring gifties, the before picture of the table and the little home decorating project I made......well, the pictures are on my camera and for some reason I cannot access them on my computer.

Right now I am busy going through a lot of the paperwork on that miscreant table of mine!!

~I'm defiantly in again although I guess I didn't start well by skipping yesterday. Yesterday I woke up on the wrong side of the bed, worried about a mom on my due date club who lost her baby, then went to a ladies tea at my mom's church. I think I just needed a "mental" day, kwim?
Anyway, I've been super busy this morning and so far:

1-2. loads laundry
3-5. 15 minutes cleaning(all in the horrid bathroom)
6. scrub out and bleach bathroom cabinet
7.clean out serger, replace needles and re-thread
8. scrub out and refill kitchen soap dispenser

I'm ravenously hungry so I'm taking a long lunch break before heading back to my sewing table for the afternoon.
Hope everyone has a lovely, productive day!~

Gosh, I thought I was farther along than that. Hubby took the kids to the park, but he has to work again this afternoon (worked all yesterday as well), so I expect they will be back soon. I can't handle 7 days straight without a break and really needed a little peace. It's nice to sit here in the quiet, but I should get back to work now.
