I'm So Excited!

Tomorrow, Jen and Cindy from Milwaukee are coming down to see me! I promise you I will have pictures. We are going to run a couple quilts through the quilting frame, and just visit and have fun. This will be the first time for them coming here, and but I hope the first of MANY times they come to visit.

I had to work today until noon. My normal work week is Monday through Thursday, 6am til 4:30pm. I work in a factory here in town. By Thursday night, I am pooped, but then I usually try to get my laundry and housework done, and sometimes stay up all night, so I can 'run' and play on Friday. For the last several weeks though, I have been going to bed, and doing my cleaning and laundry on Fridays like a good girl. Saturdays are usually set aside for spending time with my best friend and sweetie, (and Chauffeur to the quilting girls!), Louie. Sundays, well, depending on the weather, I can usually sew, or go motorcycle riding with Louie.
I worked last Friday until noon too, and I have a feeling I will be working Fridays for at least
another month. I don't like to work Fridays, but sometimes the overtime money is really nice to have, and with the price of everything going up all the time, necessary! I will be grateful for the extra money and try to be a good girl and not complain. Some of the extra money will come in quite handy in two weeks when I, and my quilting girls go to Milwaukee to see Jen and Cindy, and go to the Patched Works and see Julie! We are all so excited to go, and we are hoping there will be beautiful leaves to look at too, along the way.

When I got home from work, I started doing laundry and started on my house cleaning. You know, when I was younger, it seemed like I could really 'whip' through my chores, but any more, it seems to take forever! I still have laundry to take care of, and I need to vacuum downstairs yet. I am hoping to get some sewing of some sort done tomorrow while Jen and Cindy are here, but if I don't, that's ok.....just visiting with them will be wonderful!

Don't bother doing any cleaning for us we're just coming to see you and have a great time. I'm so excited I don't know if I'll be able to sleep tonight. I'm all packed and I feel like a little kid all packed and ready to go to camp. See you tomorrow morning.

You're excited? I'm wayyyy excited!! And I don't have a darn thing packed and ready to go. I think I'm going to fly by the seat of my pants! Mom's bringing her machine and I figure if one of us is playing on the frame, the other can sew. I'm just going to bring some BC blocks that I need to make up for Patched Works before the 6th and I'll have my old trusty pillow cases in the trunk.
