I am still here

Yes, I am still present on this earth...or at least parts of me. I have been so overwhelmed with everything going on that I didn't have time to blog and bearly anytime to have my "me" time on the stationary bike, where I do most of my blogging and internet surfing.

Last week was filled with work - both at my job and at *The Store* - and contained a lot of hockey drama as well. It seems youth sports of any kind always is surrounded by drama, but last week with all the hockey hubbub it was off the charts. Hockey coaches announced for next year, new hockey programs announced - leaving families confused, upset and feeling uncertain about what to do. Lots of emails, texts and phone calls asking, "What are you going to do?" I am sure, in the end it will all work out.

Business at *The Store* - crazy! to say the least. Mother's Day was just as big if not bigger than Valentine's Day. The weekend was busy and long, as I did pull an all nighter Saturday night to make sure that all the chocolate dipped strawberry and chocolate dipped apple boxes got done, which would put us a little ahead so Sunday's orders were able to be finished up and delivered...or picked up. Learning from our mistakes on Valentine's Day, DH and I were able to capture more walk-in business on the day of Mother's Day, which makes us feel good. Again, our staff is amazing and worked hard to get it all done and the drivers were great for they got it all out and delivered. We feel good, just very tired still.

I can't say that life will slow down now that Mother's Day is over because the boys still have their activities that we are trying to balance between all the business stuff. But all is good...and it will look even better when DH and I can catch up on our sleep.

Stitching...well I haven't had time to sit down and get the needle out. I hear it calling my name, but there just hasn't been the time. Soon, I hope.

In the meantime...thank you for visiting and catching up to the craziness. Hopefully soon I will have some stitching to share with you!

Take care and remember...

Live, Love, Laugh and Stitch often!

Funny, I hear your needle calling your name too, and from all the way up&over here. Life sure does get in the way of a moms time, but you know you wouldn't have it any other way.
Be always in dipped Strawberries and a few stitches here and there.
As always

Be sure you get a little time to yourself each day. You sound very busy. Maybe when things slow down, we can meet up for a little chat and stitch in.
