{I'm Not MIA}

Really I'm not, I've just been super busy this week. I have been decorating but it's been in blog form instead of my house. I've helped out 3 fellow blogger's in the last week with their bloggy makeovers so that was fun. And today I had 3 parent teacher conferences first thing this morning and then ran about 200 errands with 5 kidlets in tow. They are pretty good at stores so I can't complain, I do prefer to go without kids as I can move a little faster but what are you going to do when all your kids are home for a 5 day weekend!


Then I had a Craft mishap the other day, I was ironing one of my giveaways If the shoe fits stitchery things and I forgot I left the iron down as I was talking to my 4 year old. Well, leaving a hot iron on damp fabric equals burnt fabric, soooooo not good. But don't worry Kimba and Rae, They will be on their way tomorrow I promise & non burned :). Sorry it's taken me so long to get them off.


Then this evening my good friend Jeanne called and informed me that she is in the hospital and dilated to a 4 with a pinhole sized leak in her bag of water. She is 20 weeks pregnant today & this is Jeanne and Matt's first baby. Jeanne I know your reading this just know that I love ya and hope that everything works out as it should. You are in our prayers, Jentry prayed for you over dinner this evening. ;) I wish I could be there with you, I'd bring my Friends dvd game and you could kick my butt all you want. You'd do it anyway as you remember everything you see and read. Take care my friend I'm thinking of you .


Tomorrow I have to teach a class on making these fabric pumpkins. Oh and right before the class we have the funeral viewing to go to (funeral is on Friday). Plus I have to get our church RS Bulletin board redecorated for Oct. (yes I'm late) and I have to work up the newsletter as well. And to top it off I promised the kids that I would make them playdough today but that will have to wait until maybe tomorrow or Saturday. I'm feeling a little overwhelmed at the minute. Hence my blogging when I should be working. I have a couple crafts in the works but those have to wait until I get my "to do" list taken care of. I am looking forward to our pumpkin class tomorrow. It will be nice to go and hang out with friends at church and have some down time.


Okay if you made it through this long and windy post I'll bring you some cookies & we'll watch tv. Noooo lets make it Lindt Lindor Truffles only if you promise to share. Yeah Truffles and Project Runway. I'll be over in a minute.

  2. Rachel- I adore you! We could SO be the best of friends! When you complete this huge "to do" list please give yourself a break. Maybe a Pumpkin Spice frappaccino at Starbucks?:) You have earned it! Lori

  11. That made me tired just reading it. I am so sorry that you have so much to do. Maybe next week will be easier. I hope it is because I am missing your blog posts.

  12. I made it thru! Have a truffle for me since i'm not there to enjoy them. I've been on a blogging holiday as well. And now i'll be gone for a few days so it isn't going to get any better. 5 day kids weekend? What is up with that! Have a good one.

  13. Wow! You made my head spin. You are awesome with blogs :)

    Tell your friend I visit mom's on bedrest in the hospital who have completely broken their water who make it and deliver much later. It can be okay. I will be thinking of her.

  18. Wow I hope you get some rest in between all that work. I hope your friend and baby are ok.

  19. You are an amazing woman!! I soooooo would love to come to your pumpkin class! I was thinking it would be a great project for our RS to do. We're actually having a Super Saturday in November (this is quite an accomplishment for our ward!!!!). I hope you are able to get everything accomplished!

    I have to thank you...I was checking Google Reader before hopping on the treadmill this morning. I had no desire to actually go and run UNTIL I read "Project Runway" and then I HAD to go watch it on the treadmill. Thanks for the inspiration!!!! :)

  22. Project Runway...my fav!

    I'm hoping that LeAnne wins only because I am tired of Kenley and Korto's attitudes and verbal "abuse"!

    Hope you get everything done that needs to be done!

  27. Hi Rachel~
    You are busy! Wow, I think anyone would be overwhelmed in your place! I am so glad you get to have some fun time with friends tomorrow! :)

    I am going to pray for your friend. I went into labor with our first when I was 28 weeks, and our son was born at exactly 29. He is just fine, and this was over 11 years ago! I have such a soft spot for people in this situation; it was so hard!

    Have a wonderful night and a good upcoming weekend! :)

  28. I so remember having weeks, like the one you have mentioned here, when all my kiddos were little. Remember that it's ok to let others take some of the load, instead of you, when your plate gets too full. At least be sure to have some down time when all deadlines are behind you.
    Take care,
    Mary Lou
