Back to Normal????

Okay - you may not be surprised to know that I'm at my best when I'm feeling in control and in my routine. Ain't happening here! We got back Wednesday night at 11:30 PM - who knew there was still such a time!!! Okay - I'm old!

AND I went to work on Thursday!!! All Day!!! But I was cranky by the end of the day!We got our pile of mail Thursday fun to read Christmas cards even in January! Back to work on Friday. Am I coming down with something or am I allergic to Nebraska!!! After taking the magic potion for wellness - I'm doing better.

Did I mention that we got home and NO ONE had come in and taken down our extensive Christmas decorations!!!! So we had to do that today. My sewing room was a pit and was still set up for Christmas wrapping. Sigh!

I feel very behind - I haven't summarized last year or set resolutions for this year - although, confidentially, I can just recycle last years - again!!! Okay - deep breath!

I'm participating in two challenges this year - UFO and NoBuy thru Stashbusters. I managed to stay legal in Oregon for NoBuy. I took an UFO wall quilt to handquilt and I actually quilted almost everyday. [Thank goodness for naptimes for 15-month old granddaughters!] But it's not quite finished - so need to keep quilting on it.

I'm also participating in Judy's Stashbusting efforts. Obviously, I haven't done that on vacation - but I have grandious plans for my efforts this year.

I'm also in the Take it Further Challenge. This is stepping out of my comfort zone and I'm looking forward to it. I'm thinking fabric postcards to start - we'll see if the challenges need a bigger size as I get more comfortable. The first challenge is "someone you look up to" or a navy/green/purple color scheme. Hmmmm!

Oh, did I mention I'm having my other knee replaced January 22! Good Grief - how did that get so close??? I better be good at rehap this time - I have loads of plans for my time off. Yes, I realize it didn't happen last time - but surely this will be different??? Alright, I hear those snorts and giggles out there - glad we all have our senses of humor! :>

Good luck with the knee! I've had both of mine replaced, too.

Isn't it amazing how a vacation that's supposed to be relaxing turns into more work when you get home? We've learned to schedule our vacations with the last day being a day off at home so we can recover.
