Have You Got The Time?!

Where in the world does the time go?

 I remember my mother ALWAYS saying this and wondering what she meant. Now that I'm grown up (sort of) I know EXACTLY what she meant!
I've been so busy with orders lately that I haven't had time to finish my dolls. I don't know about you but I just can't stay up late anymore. By the time I get the kids fed and ready for bed I'm plum tuckered out! I enjoy the 'quiet' once they're all down but just can't seem to get motivated to do anything else. I always make sure my kitchen and all household chores are completed so that I can have my 'me' time....which basically consists of me sitting on my 'can' in front of the TV, surfing the net, or reading a book until my eyes are too tired and sleep prevails. Every-once-in-a-while, I'll stuff or hand sew a few pieces but I reserve most of that during the day when the kids are in school.
My 1 inch belt sander died yesterday when I was in the middle of an order so I'm off in just an  hour or two to run into town to pick up another one. Actually, I'm thinking I'd better drive since I don't have enough breath in my body to make it outside my driveway without going into a coughing spell.

We've been a bit sick with colds; not the flu, thank goodness, but a cold can still put you down for a day or two.
Not much to chat with you about but I am staying busy. Hope you and yours are healthy and getting 'r' done!
I'll be putting up my first Giveaway of the year in a few so.......
Stay Tuned!

I sure know what you mean about the time Vicky! It seems to just fly by, and I don't get done all that I want to accomplish but there are only so many hours in a day! I do hope you are feeling better soon! Bummer on the belt sander.. I hate when something breaks in the middle of something!

My condolences on the death of your belt sander Vicky!
Hope you are all on the mend soon.
I have decided we will just cough and cough until summer....
Enjoy your day,

Sorry your household is sick. That isn't any fun. I can relate to you being pooped out at the end of the day and I don't have kids at home anymore....I am just getting old. :) Rest and get better soon. :)
