Pampered Chef Fundraiser

I've been out of town for a week and am in a hurry right now. I have crazy busy and have forgotten to blog about this. Tonight I'm hosting a Pampered Chef Fundraiser benefitting the EGF. Online ordering closes tomorrow so that items can be received in time for Christmas. So....if you NEED :-) any Pampered Chef for yourself or for a gift here's how to order.

Btw, I had a date with the sewing machine in a 2 day sewing-a-thon. I have a little bit of hand-sewing left and then I'll post pics. :-)

November is Prematurity Awareness Month

Learn the facts:
Prematurity has been escalating steadily and alarmingly over the past two decades. One out of eight babies is born prematurely in the United States. Preterm delivery can happen to any pregnant woman.

Join the fight against prematurity and visit the March of Dimes website. Also help celebrate every baby....those born healthy and those needing help.

Every Baby Has A Story, view Emma's here. My friend set the page up and I hope to get Austin's up soon as a winner of the fight against prematuriy.

Happy Weekend

Another beautiful sunrise this morning. This time with a fog cover below the mountains. I'll never get tired of this view. But, for now.....there are boxes where I should be sitting, sipping coffee, and watching the sun come up. Oh, who am I kidding???
Although, it feels as if we aren't making progress, I guess we are. It's just taking forever it seems. Austin's not being nice to me with his naps. He can't transition through sleep stages at the 45 min mark. Hannah did the same thing and it lasted well until after she was a year old. I don't know how to fix this. If I try to let him cry, he wakes completely up. If I go in to him, he jerks, eyes pop open, and he smiles at me. Stinker!!!

Anyway...just showing off the ever-so-slow progress in MY ROOM. The bookshelf is up and filled.
The old desk put up. I plan on using the spot to the right of the window for my sewing machine and the side opposite that for my cutting table.
And, my fabulous walkin closet. eeekkk...this part is my fav.
Finally, my poor pitiful 8" square for the San Diego Wild Fire Blankets. I'm not at all happy with it, but I'll send it anyway. It wasn't done without much effort, so maybe they can use it.
I'm really struggling these days. I can't seem to accomplish anything. This morning I decided that either I've got to get up earlier or stay up later after the kids are in bed. But, by the end of the day, I'm just exhausted....and the problem with getting up earlier is that I'm soooo not a morning person.
