Last Crazy Day . . . For Now
Crazy. I started my day this morning, eating my lunch that I didn't eat yesterday. I have 4 day old hair and didn't even pat it down. My notes are all over my arm... reminders of to do's I can't forget. We worked non stop and are wrapping things up... I believe I can see the light at the end of the tunnel... and I pray it is not a train! Sometimes it feels like it's the last minute details that take the longest to complete. Our designer material came in a slightly different color, much to Lindsay's horror. A little tea bath took the edge off and it looks good :) Bonnie & Kristia are working hard in sales, Larry & Josh stayed late figuring out a way to secure our sign to the display. Ash & I headed over to Lowe's tonight and picked up flooring & misc. hardware. Everyone at Pebbles Inc. has worked so hard to get it all ready. Last minute details to pack the crate up tomorrow morning and we are done. We fly out a week from tonight.
We got home late, but Ash & Paul had surprised us with a Stouffer's Lasagna in the oven (yes... they are still making room for beef in their freezer). We watched Signs & Psych and stayed up too late. It was nice being home together. I am grateful all of my girls are so willing to pitch in and fill in my holes at home this week... actually I always have holes, just not this many. The girls told me that there is a dead bird in the driveway. I was sad and asked where? 'Under your car Mom. It's been there all week'. I've been running over the dead, frozen bird all week. I feel thoughtless & disconnected this week in my extreme busyness getting ready for the show. I am probably going to go to bird hell and be pecked to death, deservedly so. My life is unbalanced this week. Ugh!
