The last few days have gone by in a whirl. I’m trying to get everything organized ready for starting work next week. House cleaned, tick, washing under control, tick, ironing up to date, tick, find all the documents I need to take with me, tick, ponder which of my clothes are respectable enough to wear to the office, tick, buy a new washer for the bath plug, tick, recycle a million tons of junk so I can get into the cellar, tick…..it goes on and on…
I can’t remember the last time our house looked this tidy…I know it won’t last, but it makes me feel like I’m under control and that I’m going to be able to stay organized and hold this whole shabang together. It’s been a long time…too many years to admit to…since I went out to the office and I’ve never juggled kids and office. But other people seem to manage just fine and I’m sure I will too.
I’m anticipating being completely wiped out at the end of the day for the next few weeks. It’s always like that with a new job, isn’t it. The transition is going to be a bit of a shock to the system, but a good shock I hope. Time will tell. The good thing is, I’m really looking forward to it!
In between all this hustle and bustle I finally managed to make the prizes for Julie and Paige for their box ideas last week. Mug rugs from teeny tiny pinwheels in Rouenneries Deux. I love how they have turned out and I hope they will too.
Now the only thing I’m feeling bad about are the strips I’m lagging behind on for the Stitch Tease Bee…..and as hubby is away next weekend I’m planning a stitching and teasing marathon to get myself all caught up.
Phew…I think I need a cup of tea and a lie down.
Have a good weekend!
