As Mommy, I am keeper of the schedule and calendar, at least for the kids and I. My DH, frequently travels, and so, I know that our regular day to day schedule should not rely on any help from him. However, special events do pop up that I need to attend and WANT to attend without the children tagging along. I usually block of these events in his calendar so I can go about my business without any conflicts. 9 times out of 10, this all works out, occasionally requiring the assistance of a baby sitter here and there. This coming weekend is proving to NOT be one of the times it works out. The quilt guild I joined up in the mountains is having its annual quilt walk and I anticipated being there all day to help out, especially since I have actually put some quilts in the show this year. My DH informed me he HAS to travel for work this week and his flight doesn't get back until the day after the show. Also, my eldest DD's gymnastic competition, originally scheduled for Sunday, has been moved to Saturday because of the amount of participants. Her level is the only one competing on Saturday, the same day and time as the quilt show. I cannot be in 3 places (all about 2 hours away from one another) at the same time. I've cried, whined, moaned, and now vented. Thanks for letting me do so. Looks like the 3 girls and I will be going to the competition together, then up the hill to do any remaining clean up at the show.
Late last week, I completed these blocks for today's link up. I am nearly done with my Swoon blocks, only a couple more to do.
1) Please link up only to the page in your blog showing your wonderful blocks, not just the blog homepage. Flickr pictures are also OK.
2) Make sure to put your blog name as the description so people know where they are going or the name of your block!
3) Please grab my button and post it in your blog post or sidebar.
4) Visit other linky participants!
Thanks for reading!
