Our Week

As I thought back on our past week I had a hard time remembering exactly what we had done - all I knew was it was busy and crazy!  I think I am still in recovery mode.

The week started out with our Stake Senior Sister Enrichment meeting which I am over - it includes setting up tables and chairs, a program, food and clean up.  All went well and the sisters enjoyed the food and the presentation on family history.  That evening I had a CM webinar so it was a busy day.

Jim went with Tessa to her DECA meeting that evening.  Tessa will be presenting a project at the state DECA convention in February - go Tess!

Tuesday my dad had knee replacement surgery.  I went up to see him that afternoon after a morning of meetings/conference calls and he was doing amazingly well.  He was doing so well in fact they sent him home the next day.  He is doing great, having pain of course but he is amazing for an 82 year old man! 

Wednesday I spent the day helping a friend with a project and that evening was New Beginnings at church.  Tessa was in a cute skit - the theme was the Olympics.  I told Jim he could choose - go to New Beginnings or stay home and clean and he picked cleaning!  I think I got the better end of the deal.

Thursday my friend Missy flew into town, she is from Denver.  She was attending a traning here in Portland so she stayed with me.  In fact they held a few of her training sessions here at our house so thus we needed to get the place clean!! 
I had my crafty ladies meeting Thursday night and we made a darling little message board!

This weekend was our big scrapbooking event at the Expo Center - 1,400 scrapbookers.  So I went over Friday to get set up.  Friday evening Missy and another friend of ours Karen went out for dinner and a little browsing at Anthropologie!!  Tessa was babysitting and Jim enjoyed watching the Blazer game at home alone!!

I was at the Expo Center from 7:30 am. and didn't get home until after 11:00 p.m. on Saturday - it was a huge success but I was tired!!

Sunday I had a ward conference to attend and got Missy to the airport.  I was in bed by 9:00 p.m.!!!

In my spare time this week I have been sewing up a batch of these darlings - reuseable grocery bags.  I am going to open an etsy shop and sell them - just because I have nothing else to do!!
