I'm in a hurry today, rushing around trying to get a project ready to send to Scrapbook Trends. I need stamps from the post office too for the Christmas cards and birthday thank you notes.
I think Woody is airing out rather well. I knew there was some advantage to keeping this place as dry as the Sahara desert.
My sister has a date to meet with the surgeon at Duke 1/16. I think I can safely say that my going to CHA is out. First, flights out of where I live are ridiculous thanks to Obama's inauguration, which is that week (like $1000s for a round trip ticket). My friend Nicole S. wanted me to drive to where she lives and take a more reasonably priced plane out of there to CHA. However, I've had my reservations about that plan because of the winter weather. But I was willing to look into it. But last, the final coup de grace was my sister will be having surgery sometime after 1/16, which means that I lose my child care. My mom will be taking care of my sister recovering from surgery. So, no one thing killed it. But lots of things piled up and suffocated my CHA plans I think. I was really looking forward to meeting so many online friends. I'm sad, but I know that making layouts for CHA for the manufacturers I work for will take my mind off it. And I'll be more free to focus on that without having to stress about my travel plans. There is always summer.
