Playing Catch Up

 Things have been SOO crazy lately that when I walk out the door on errands I seem to always forget something/lots of somethings! I finally gave up on my memory and began taping notes to myself on the front door.
 Ditto on the kitchen cabinet. Sewing to do's, calls to make, follow ups, and all that jazz. For the last two days I have been giving it my best to work on the notes.
 Table runner for DD #1's upcoming baby girl shower she is hosting.
 Hard to see :(  the sweet color combo on this . VERY simple over size blocks with pink/grey chevrons, grey/pink dots, as well as pink/grey dots
 FMQ with loop dee loops.
 DD #1 kitchen window treatment. I left it longer than I think she needs but its a heck of a lot better to hem than it is to make a new one that's too short. Here's a tip. DO NOT sew with burlap fabric!!
Pacifier clips for part of her baby shower decorations.

I am close to being done with DD #1's "Mommy will you do list" One of the goals for today is to finish the rest and get it out the door. NO MORE "Mommy will you do" for awhile, I have way too many UFO's setting around.

Another To Do for today is get the bills paid, do the banking, and get back to a real budget. I have been flying by the seat of my pants for too long. The majority of our savings and retirement is set up on auto transfers. I have been blowing the heck out of extra money and saved money from our weekly budget. I know where the majority of all that cash has been going, time to back off on some of that spending, its CRAZY!!

Short post as I hope to knock a few things off all those notes taped around the house while keeping up with the Tasmanian devil today. Fingers crossed.

Another thing I have figured out in the past  two weeks is that I NEED down time!! I tend to go a million miles and hour, 7 days a week, 14-16 hours a day. It needs to stop! We have had some BIG terrible events happen to family friends this past week. Dealing with those tragedy's as well as keeping up the pace of things around home (self inflected) has taken it's toll. Time to step back and regroup. Life is toooo darn short.


  1. I hear you. I need down time, too. it is a precious commodity in my life. Hope you have a great weekend- xo Diana

  2. Debby, sit & breathe, you are always on the run for everyone, you need some "me" time. Are you still in on the 52 Week Challenge? $11.00 goes into the pot this week. I was so tired the other night I hit the transfer money in my bank acct, not even realizing or remembering where I had transferred it to. I called the bank today who let me know as it hadn't showed up on my History yet 3 days later ! Yes life is too darn short !
