Firstly, and most importantly, we're still dry here. (yeah!)
Things are looking very good and we're very hopeful. We're still w-a-i-t-i-n-g for high water…. it's so crazy. But that's just about all we can do.
So while we hope & wait….. I have been sewing.
It turns out the prospect of flooding is the perfect reason to procrastinate. I was so sure that the kids & I would be heading out of town and that my trip would be canceled. So I totally stopped preparing…. what was I thinking?
Now, in true Stephinie (aka queen procrastinator) fashion I'm down to the wire with a crazy to do list that is so long it's actually humorous….
I've got about 2 dozen things to finish sewing up, Sam has orientation at his new school (3 hours away) on Friday, my mom comes in Saturday, we pick Sam up Monday and my mom & I leave Tuesday. Sometime before Saturday I should really clean my mama-has-been-busy neglected house and make sure the pantry contains something edible for my dear sweet husband to feed the children while I am away.
You could say I'm feeling a little swamped….
Which is somehow funny to me because I LIVE in a swamp….
(if it's not funny, I'm blaming it on the lack of sleep, over caffeinated brain in my head)
And before I procrastinate any further, I really should get back to work.
But first I want to show you a flower from our garden.
Zinnias, love them. They make me smile.
See, there I go again…. distracted by anything that isn't work. Oh my.
