Monday was a bust for me ....

At least in the cleaning department! My energy level is below ZERO, so that didn't help very much.

I did get our sheets washed, the bed aired out and cleaned real good. It was so nice to go to bed with nice smelling clean sheets. After just a few things I felt as thought I had been working all day and had no more strength to do anything else so I am thinking this "kicking the sickness out" will take much longer than I had thougth.

Today I did do some work in my craft room, not much but I did manage to get all the boxes (and there were many) that were on the floor in the craft room under my table tops moved out to the living room. I just don't have the room in the craft room to go through everything so I decided I would go through them in the living room. Plus I will see them sitting there and be more motivated to go through them to get them out of the living room. Later today I plan on doing some vacuuming in the craft room and then nothing will return to this room unless it has a "HOME". I have a few things I would like to make for Valentine's Day and need to be able to get to my cutting area and sewing area, wich as of right now I can't do either :(
I also need to sew up the curtain for the craft room but it isn't a priority right now. The first priority is to get everything cleaned organized and put away. I have so much fabric that isn't on the shelves folded that takes up one entire large bin.

I just finished watching The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian and it was very good. Going to go start the boxes and put another movie on to watch while I go through things.

Yesterday I typed up a letter for my family and friends that will be sent out later tonight with a Picture card I had made. I was wanting to get a family picture to send to everyone and decided to make it into a card but since we waited to take the picture Christmas morning it obviously didn't get made in time to send out as a Christmas card, it will be more of a Happy New Year card. I only got 30 of them made and I sent out about 61 Chritsmas cards so not everyone will be getting the picture card.

So how is everyone's week going so far?? We have been having lots of rain and today it's pretty windy also.It took Roger 3 hours to drive to work today!! I really don't like him having to commute but I am thankful he has a job. Hoping the commute home won't be that long, his normal commute is about 2 hours each way.

I talked with Mattie the other day and he will be headed to his first Duty Station(Ft. Hood, Texas) on January 29th, he also said that he had heard through the grapevine that his new unit is deploying to Iraq in September. This didn't make me very happy to hear but it isn't official so I don't need to start worrying yet. I am trying to find enough things to keep my mind busy, I plan on reading, embroiderying, and sewing every moment I can just so I won't sit here and just be worried.



  1. Joann, Looks like a busy day. I'm so glad you are all getting better after being sick. I certainly know the feeling. Thank you for stopping by my blog. Have a blessed week. Kathi

  2. Get some more rest! It will just take longer to feel better if you push yourself too hard!
