A number of hiccups happened to me over the last week that caused a slight delay on finishing the secret project. I would have gotten it done but on Halloween I took the kids trick or treating. The hubby doesn’t do well with long walks and tends to convince the kids to stop early. So I usually jump in and take them on a LONG stroll so that THEY are the ones begging to go home and not stop at any more houses. Well, I forgot that this year and wasn’t able to do as much as I wanted to on the Secret Project Thursday night. Then, the daughter told me on Wednesday that she had cheer practice on Saturday. This Saturday – today. They need the practice but it’s an hour and change drive for me and with practice and then coming back – well there is just no time to do the Secret Project and get ready for my Niece’s birthday party this afternoon. I actually said no. We cannot go to practice. But my Auntie Ruby is helping me out. I still have to drive the hour and change to drop the daughter at her house in Manteca but I can go back home right after. She is going to take Kayla to cheer practice and then afterwards take her to Ammabel’s party in Hercules – whew! We’re all over the bay area today! This way, I’ll be able to go and come back and at least wrap my back up gift. Yes! I got a back up gift just in case this exact thing happened. And hopefully I’ll have just enough time to get my nails done. 🙂
And tomorrow is the first cheer comp of the year so I spent yesterday afternoon making sure Kayla had all her stuff – hairspray, makeup, brushes, etc! And then on Monday I’m off to Los Angeles! I’ve had to do a lot of planning and getting things ready these last few days so I’m really sad that I’m not able to get RID of this secret project! I tried, I really did! 🙂
I’m not sure I’ll have time to do my Sunday Stash report tomorrow morning since I need to be up at the crack of dawn to make it over to Sacramento by 8am – cheer outfit, hair and make up set for the daughter. So if I don’t – I’ll post something soon. <3
~ Wish I was quilting today!
Oh, I remember competitive sports days and the craziness of getting everyone where/when/how. Good luck at tomorrow’s comp.
