Butterfly Award

Hello Everyone,

Hope everyone had a great weekend! It has been crazy around my household that last week and I apologize for not posting, visiting and commenting. I promise I will be back in full force real soon!!

My daughter purchased a home about 10 days ago and found out Friday night at 8pm that the inspectors suggested that it be painted (outside) before the appraiser comes on Wednesday (as they would call that and we'd have to paint it anyway but would save us the cost of a re-inspection) guess what....part of the agreement was we would paint. However, we thought we'd have more than 5 days to do it in. Yikes!

Well, we hit it hard and of course, it had to rain part way through it all and made a mess for us and had to re-do one whole side (weather..not in our favor) We did manage to get the house done and now onto the garage with 2 evenings to finish it in. Keep your fingers crossed for us!

Along with that, I committed to help my daughters girlfriends throw a baby shower for my daughter which was on Sunday with about 50 people attending. So, I had food to prepare and set up that I said I would I was probably looking like a crazy women~it's been a blur that last few days.

I am missing all of my blogger friends so much and my craft room. Please keep in touch with me...things will settle down soon, I hope!! Thanks for understanding:)
