Preparing for a busy week. . .

Wow, what a week this will be.  I’m busily adding to my etsy store, a couple of auctions on e-bay and attempting to dig out from the mess in my house.  It never seems as if there’s enough time to do everything I’d like to.

Very exciting day yesterday, my kids high school football team has made it to the State Championship and will be playing at Ford Field (where the Lions play) on Saturday.  My daughter is in varsity band, so she will have the honor of playing there also.  What a once in a lifetime chance!  All our family will be going and her brothers will be attending to support her and their football team.  Oops almost forgot – it’s also her 16th birthday Saturday! 

I’m busily trying to make Christmas presents for my mother-in-law (Mom2) and my Mother.  It’s so hard when they either have everything or can afford to buy it themselves.  I’ve already made a lot of all natural soaps that I’ll be putting in gift baskets for them, but I’m thinking about tackling a patchwork scarf for each of them also.  There are some wonderful sellers on etsy & e-bay who make wonderful scarfs so I’ll have to see how detailed they are to make.  If I mess up I know who I’ll be running to!  I’ll post some pictures after they’re done.

Work is going well.  As I’ve said before I’m still struggling with all the hours at work and then my own business.  But I have to say, I just LOVE those ladies at Curves.  The older ones are my favorite to be there with – it seems they just have a different outlook on life and don’t seem to get so wrapped up in the small stuff.  A wonderful way to be, but something at this hectic part in my life, not something I’m always able to do.

Have a very happy Thanksgiving everyone!  Enjoy your friends & family, take a deep breath and be THANKFUL for all we do have.  At least that’s my plan!  Big hugs to all!  Wendy
