The Perfect Storm

I had a gut feeling this would happen. Two MAJOR things at work, projects that I've been working on months on one and a year on the other -- well, they're both culiminating at the same time. The next two weeks will be horrible, and for the next 60 days I'll be working long days and most weekends. I honestly don't know how I can be in two places at once, but I'll give it the old college try.

Yes, my internet went down again on Monday and was down until a few minutes ago. I have them coming out again on Saturday morning to hopefully trace the problem. If they can't, then I'm having it disconnected and I'll look for another provider.

Quilting -- none. Poking buttons -- not at all. Petting fabric -- nope.

Keep me in your thoughts through this period. And keep Penny in your thoughts, too. She is so cute when she throws herself at me when I finally get home at night. She just wants some attention. That's not asking for much, is it?

Please take some stitches for me!!

Oh, sorry Vicki!! I know you can do it...but what a pain to have all that going at once!!

Carol said...

Lots of good thoughts coming your way...send Penny to Mom for a long sleepover...she'll give her tons of attention...LOL! Take care!

It never fails to happen: announce you have a project you want to get started on and life interferes.

But the fact that the projects are peaking is a good thing. Focus on getting them to their completion and when done you will have a well deserved break coming. Because no time to pet fabric is just not fair!

Hopefully after the next two weeks fly by you can have a break.

Vicky, I'm sorry to hear that you haven't been having time to play. Good luck on the work front --- I'm sure everything will work out just fine; it always seems to, doesn't it?!

I have finally been able to get some sewing in --- mainly since I am forcing myself to work on things even though the basement is still a shambles from the reconstruction.

Can't wait to see what you will be coming up with once you get back to sewing.

So sorry! Its always that way at work for me too. No matter how you preplan and develop the work flow to avoid it things all seem to collide...like magnets! Hugs for sweet Penny, they do love their Mom's attention.

Take a few minutes every evening for you and Penny! Be sure to eat lunch. Remember that you are in my heart and prayers! Hugs!

I don't know how you'll get through it but I know you will and I so hope things slow down for you once this is all behind you.

Will be thinking good thoughts for you as you work through the next several months. Hope all goes well!
