More excuses Apologies

2009 October 149This is how I’m feeling right now (well, minus the orange hair, LOL) … going a thousand miles a minute, at least in my head, and smacking into walls… walls of deadlines and events that I need to attend and details I need to take care of…  So much to do, so little time to accomplish everything on my “to-do” list.

I did have a good visit with my mother when she was here (thanks for asking!) and she took me out to lunch twice (so I gained a little weight, but I’m pretty sure the peanut soup at The Red Fox Inn was worth it).  😛

By this Sunday evening my week will  have encompassed 2 home football games (last Saturday’s homecoming game was rained out/postponed to Monday), daily marching band & cross-country practices, several special events at church, and a Very Big Deal marching band competition 3 hours away (so we’ll be getting home around 2am on Sunday morning).

I truly miss blogging; it is my creative outlet and the source of some wonderful friendships.  It may be another 5 days before I can return.

I get on the computer to check my e-mail and realize I have yet another responsibility.  I deal with changes in plans (my apologies to the pizza man, we no longer need 70 pizzas tonight, only 20 pizzas…. but I’m still waiting for the 1.75 inches of rain that was  forecasted to mess up that order!!) and discover even more activities to post on my Google calendar (because I am too busy to go write it down on our regular calendar).  If our power goes out, I am in Big Trouble.  Or I’ll have lots of extra down time!

Now it’s back to working on this month’s church newsletter (my unpaid gig with MS Publisher, a labor of love) and purchasing more supplies for feeding the band (because they need paper plates and napkins to go with all that pizza we are feeding them) and oh, yeah… my family needs more milk to drink (we go through about a gallon a day).  Guess I’ll be hitting Costco instead of my computer.  Oh, well.  The game is likely to be a rain event and I’ll come home early to get some hours in on the newsletter.   Just thinking about all that made me feel a litle bummed, so I’m going to leave us (you and me) with this:

Anyone up for a photo challenge?

Next Wednesday (October 28th) I will post pictures taken from various windows and doors in my house, looking out.    I’d love to see what you see when you look outside! Let me know in the comment section if you are playing along, and I will link to all who participate.

And hopefully by then I will have been by to see your latest updates!
