I'm Back...

I took a vacation.  From blogging, sewing, pretty much everything.  I went to visit my family for about a week and a half.  Just got home last night.   Usually today would be spent cleaning and getting things back to normal, but while I was away, my husband took care of everything.  The house is cleaner/more organized than it has been in months.  He is the greatest.  You have no idea.  I hate going on vacation without him....but when I come back to a home like this...I seriously consider doing it again.

So, I think i'm going to sew today instead of clean.  If I'm lucky, maybe I'll have something to show you later before the week is over.  I have some things I've been dying to try since I've been away.  Plus, I only entered "blog land" once while I was away, so I have a lot of catching up to do around here as well.

Also, I had to drop out of the Extreme Makeover contest.  A few weeks ago I pulled a muscle in my shoulder and I just couldn't keep up with the sewing...mainly because I couldn't hold my arm up long enough to sew a 6 inch straight line.  It's feeling lots better now.  I just have a knot in my shoulder the size of a grapefruit, but that's going away too.  BUT, they have a wildcard for the last round, so maybe I'll be back for the last week if I can get my act together and get some things done.

Hope you are having a lovely week.  I'm slightly disappointed to come home to such horrible weather, especially when I was vacationing in a very sunny and warm place, but no matter how much fun I have when I'm gone, I always love being home again.
