Missing?

I feel like I have been missing for a week!!! This last week has been a crazy one for me!!
On Monday I had to take Robyn to the Airport a whole day early :( and then I went to CHA and tried to be her for the day! Ha ha big shoes to fill!! Tuesday I had to figure out how I was getting everything "extra" home and then head to the airport and fly home. Besides being delayed in Denver for about an hour and being freezing cold waiting for the plane and on the plane my travels went well. 

Wednesday morning I awoke and this was my surprise!!!  My daughter had set up a book fair in her room for me to attend ( I had just organized all of her books before I had left town! LOL!!) So cute!!


Wednesday was filled with appointments and writing a 3 minute presentation and making 15 bracelets and these goodie bags to go with the presentation and the bracelets. I did use Robyn's new More Faithful Sayings stamp set! My close ups would not focus :( but the tops read "The ball is in your court! Play the "game" of life with... Integrity" The bracelets were black beads with a soccer bead and a baseball bead! I forgot to take a picture but my daughter wants one and so I will post a pic when I do her bracelet. 


Thursday and Friday I was a cleaning and laundry manic!! I think my family wore every piece of clothing they had while I was gone LOL I felt like I was swimming in Laundry!!!!
Today was the day to catch up on bills, organizing and office stuff! I got most of my "to do's" done and now I am feeling caught back up!! So tomorrow I will be relaxing and watching the Superbowl!  
Make sure to check back on Monday, I have a nice little something planned!!!

Last but not least I wanted to share a picture that my daughter drew!! 
Cricut you are welcomed and loved in our house!!!!

First off, thank God you got home safe. Now I was exhausted just reading your blog. Your week sounds like most women weeks are. I am a stay at home wife, since my kids are already away at college and my days are just as hectate. I am constantly cleaning the 6 bedrooms and 3 baths, laundry, ironing, cooking and then of course our new addition our Dog. So I know exactly how you feel especially with small children. Thanks for sharing your daily chores, sometimes I feel I am the only one out there with all of these obligations.

I loved your daughter's book fair! That is priceless! So happy you are caught up on the never ending fun of laundry! My daughter loved your daughter's cricut picture. She keeps asking me a million questions about it..."who made that?...how she know how to draw that?...what's her name?...can she come play at my house?...that is cricut!!!...he's cute!!...can I draw a cricut?...and on and on! We love that Little Cricut! We made an entire post of pictures showing Robyn why her little cricut should come live with us! The girls had fun setting up their Barbie houses for it! If you get a chance, we woulkd love for you to check it out! Enjoy your relaxing day today! I can't wait to see what you have for us Monday!

Hi Karlee!
WHEW--made ME tired! Sure missed you, but so very glad to hear you're home safe! Absolutely love your daughter's book fair & drawing & the goodie bags you've made. I love you kid, but I don't think there is a person on this earth that can fill Robyn's shoes! Thumbs up for trying! Can't wait to see what you have for tomorrow, but try to relax for the rest of the day (yeah, right!) & enjoy the ball game! (I only watch the commercials & 1/2 time!)
Warm Hugs from R.I.,
