Well, it is Monday evening and I did promise you a status photo of The Family Sampler...so, here it is:
Yes, I was able to make it up to the house, getting in all the windows...a little bit of the greenery...a start on the lamp posts...and some of the walls. It is coming along. This is such a fun project to stitch. As I stitched the date, I thought that this would be a wonderful anniversary present to DH and I for next April we will be celebrating our 20th Wedding Anniversary. I know that is still 6 months away...so that gives me plenty of time to get this stitched and framed :)
Today I worked on getting things ready for our upcoming trip for the boys' hockey tournament. It is one thing trying to get one's family ready to travel, but it is another to make sure that all the "i's" are dotted and "t's" are crossed for a whole hockey team of 14 year olds - - - but as a team manager, something that I have done for the last 7 years, I pretty much have this down to a science. Although, preparation for each travel tournament typically brings with it some sort of challenge or stressfull moment. Like not having an "official" signed roster or purchasing last minute tickets to a team event or worrying about making the plane flight home when the championship game is planned late Sunday afternoon (guess we will tackle that one when and if it occurs). Never a dull moment. I do plan to bring my camera and a laptop so that I can blog over the weekend....oh, but this is just Monday. I guess I still have some days to organize and pack.
Well, since I am just a rambling on, I will end this post for today. I hope your week has started out on a good note...like mine...and will continue to go well. Just remember...
Take a deep breathe,
Decide to enjoy life,
And cross a few X's!
