It Had to Happen...

Let's just say that there was a lot going on this week.
Normal Christmas rush at work,
Orders to keep straight,
Lots to do...
Was JWS having surgery?
OR
wasn't he?
Discussions.
A party here on Thursday,
Light up Night on Friday,
Two sets of company on Sunday,
Breakfast at the church on Monday,
Wood for the railing that JWS was going to build
before
Thanksgiving,
Deliveries to be made
and
kids
always kids
underfoot.
So,
all that being said...
it is little wonder
how
WE MISCOMMUNICATED SATURDAY'S DIALYSIS RUN!

That is all it was,
we didn't forget the poor woman,
Lord knows, we realize she is there
and
needs to go.
It was just a series of
conversations,
texts
and phone calls
that
went seriously awry.
It was bound to happen.
You do the math.
Three years of dialysis runs
Three days a week
Four Drivers
Four jobs
Three children under the age of seven now.
Two school buses to meet every day
Two new babies in the time period.
That's 156 runs a year,
over 450 in the past three years
and
WE SCREWED UP ONE!
All was not lost,
we realized 1/2 hour late
when she was sitting in the car waiting,
that someone messed up.
I flew,
hair messed up,
no make-up,
painting clothes
grabbed a sweatshirt
and
flew.

Catastrophe
averted...

The teapot above
was a gift from that blessed woman
for my camper....
and
yet
we still miscommuncated her care! 

I am thinking that we have not heard the end of this.....


Working on these golf club covers for a friend
to give as a gift.
Fun and relaxing.

Not relaxing....
is this little boy who is fast asleep for now.
He is by far the most active of the six.
Wow,
it is batten down the hatches when he arrives! 
Last night,
every feat of
daredevil
agility
gymnastic
death defying
climb and leap.
He would stop and say,
"TA DA!"
What a character!

And this....
JWS bought me this nice charger when he bought my Ipod.
I got another when I got my Iphone.
Then I lost this one.
I didn't want to tell him
he thinks I am scattered enough.
(Refer back to the top of this post to see why)
So,
under the ruse of trying to get my home in order
for the holidays,
I started to
"organize"
drawers,
closets,
cubby holes...
anywhere I could have put it.
Last night, when I went to put Wyatt to bed,
there it was in the spare bedroom
apparently where I left it
at the last
grandchild(ren)
sleepover.
Whew!

And these...
so glad to have these off of my list.

They are not my favorite surface to paint on.

Finished just in time for a new bear and buck season!

Never a dull moment my friend. Like Trish, I had to smile, ok I laughed out loud! Some how I don't think you'll be hearing the end of it either. I know my MIL would NEVER let me forget.......no matter how much I do I'll never get the "Daughter in-law of the year award!"
With all you have going on I often wonder when you find time to create as you do.
Take care and Happy Thanksgiving!

Hi there Cathy.
Man that was quite a post. I was tired to begin with and after reading that I think I need to go to bed. LOL
I must have missed something by my absence about JWS surgery??? hope everything is ok??? I am sure your MIL will forgive you, once in 3 years I say is pretty good considering the busy lives you all lead.
Take care. I am holed up here painting away for my last show. Busy and good season so far. I will be glad when it is done however. I need a break.

So you made one mistake in three years. I think that is a fabulous track record.
Happy Thanksgiving
