I'm so BUSY...my head is spinning.. (do you remember that song, I'm so dizzy my head is spinning? ) thats how I feel! all good stuff though. This past weekend I saw alot of family, my sister came up from MO and spent the weekend here and my mom and aunts and lots of cousins were in the area for my grammies burial service. (remember she died a while back, but they had her cremated and brought her here to be buried in cattarugus where my grandpa is buried. Anyways it was great to see everyone. I miss my family. We are all so far away from each other. And allllll so very interesting.. if not a bit eccentric! anyways it was a wonderful service for my grammie.
NOw Ive got bethanys baby shower this coming weekend. ANd I have no idea what Im doing!! I guess thats not true, I have plans.. lets just see if I can pull it all together! LOL.. I have been in a true mental fog! totally unfocused and forgetful.. not sure why.. but thats the case. I have some special things I want to make (cant say what, because Bethany reads my blog), gifties to wrap for prizes, and who knows what else to do.. I have a few lists that I'm working off of. There will be about 70 people including us there. I just want it to be a nice time for everyone. I wish I didnt have to work.. I need lots of time to get ready. Hubbys out of town and wont be home until sunday. So he will miss the shower and my 50th! see how he is??? (smart man!!)
anyways, just wanted to pop in and say hi. I have to go brush my toothies and make some popcorn and head off to work.
have a great day all..

Hi Viv,

Just don't forget to breathe!!!! I don't know you super well, but you seem to be the type that thrives on activity. Have a great week.

Our partiies usually bring about 70, so I understand your' fogginess'. You absolutely have 2 much to do!!! If I lived nearby, I'd help you out. We're good at last minute party preps.:)

Have a great time. All that is necessary will get done, let go of the rest.

Gee, sounds like my life right now, only you manage to be creative amongst all the commotion! I on the other hand, tend to plop down in my chair and stay there!! Love your Pumpkin Heads!

I've known you long enough now to be 100% SURE you will pull every detail of Bethany's shower together, & ALL your guests (especially the beautiful guest of honor) will have a BLAST! As for your 50th, my lil' friend - my unexpected trip to the rez threw me WAY late with stuff, but I DO have something in the works for your bd! I mailed your card early so that would at LEAST be on time! Arrrrggggh! LOVE YOU BUNCHES!

Oh my! You have been quite a busy bee! It always seems like from here on out until Christmas it's mayhem. So many crafts to do and parties to plan for. I can't wait to here all about the shower. 70+ people!!! Wow!

Thank you for the acorn caps and treasures! You are too sweet! I received them the other day, and I can't wait to start some projects.

I hope the rest of your week is fun and productive.:-)

Wowsy Viv, what a weekend of fun you had. HAPPY BIRTHDAY SWEETIE!!! I had no idea and sorry I missed it. Welcome to 50 with me. I hit it last April. I still don't believe that we're 50 so that's all that matters.

The shower looks like it was wonderful and how sweet of you to give the Daddy gifts too. That crowd says you're a very loved family.

Hugs...Tracy :)
