Not much going on EXCEPT...

...We're leaving in the morning at 6 to head up the road to meet Little Miss and see our Hampton...oh and I guess we'll spend some time with their mom and dad too. I think we're ready...bags are packed, gifts are ready, the dogs bags are packed...all that needs to happen is that it turns into 6 a.m. Oh my gosh I hope I can sleep tonight. I already told Andy that I'll drive most of the way...I drive faster than he does...don't tell the Florida, Georgia and Alabama police that I'm on the road please.

Not much sewing going on here this week...no stash added, no stash used...so this week's report is exactly the same as last week's.
Week 18
Fabric Added this Week:0 yards
Fabric Added Year to Date:26.25 yards

Fabric Used this Week: 0 yards
Fabric Used Year to Date: 99.75 yards

Fabric Busted: 73.5 yards

Spent some time this week doing laundry, cleaning and just getting things ready to be gone for 8 days. Why is it that I have to have the house all clean to go away????? I'm not going to be here to see it? Andy decided that he needed to clean the shower, he's worse than I am...he took the shower head off and soaked it in vinegar to get the calcium build up out of there...he had lots of help...Zack was very interested in what dad was doing on a stool in the shower. Hopefully I can get online at Josh's so I can post the newest pictures. I'll talk to you from Birmingham!

Oh Carol.....we are more and more alike than I've ever realized. I too refuse to leave the house until it is absolutely clean. I think it is the feeling of coming back home with pure exhaustion and knowing that all that needs to be done is unpack, grocery shop, check mail, pay bills....who has time to clean when they get back?!!
Amazing Race tonight!! That should keep you mind busy for about an hour. :-)
OH....laughing when I read you would drive cause your faster. (me too!)

My home has to be clean before I can go away - especially the kitchen. LOL

I drive faster, too. Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy, my friend!

Anne said...

Yippee Skippy.... you're almost on your way! Can't wait to hear all about it. I also clean before leaving because I don't want to come home to a dirty house...also, what if someone had to come in for something? Like a burglar? Oh yikes!

Have a great time. I do the same thing, clean before I go just because I don't want to come home to a dirty house.

Anne Heidi said...

I hope your trip is wonderful, and I am looking forward to see pictures! Oh, and I am the same way, everytthing has to be clean and tidt before we go anywhere LOL

Karen said...

I hope you can keep your eyes open on the trip because I know you would have little sleep last night. An exciting time for you and your family.
I guess cleaning before you go is like your mother telling you to wear clean underwear in case you have an accident.

Judy said...

Stick your arm out the window if you get stopped with your id and scream "NEW GRANDBABY.....give me the ticket and HURRY!!!"

Have a great trip Carole -- I'm so excited for you. Oh, having lived in Huntsville for several years, I feel it my duty to let you know that it's not Birmingham...it's Bummin'ham!

Nan said...

You worked so hard before you left! I clean up before I leave, too - aren't we silly girls? It is nice to come home to a lovely, clean home, isn't it?
Have a wonderful time, cuddling with your grandbabies!!
