Slipping by

This week is quickly getting away from me. I sure would like to know how it happens so I could work on a plan to keep it from happening again. Futile, I know. Kind of like trying to catch the wind in a bucket.

I've been busy working on the quilt between getting the kids back in school, housekeeping, and getting myself ready for a new semester. My classes start tomorrow!

I've managed to get 3/4 of my house cleaned to the point that I could have company and not feel shame at my poor housekeeping skills. All that's left is the office/school room and the guest room turned sewing room. I fear these two rooms may not get done to my satisfaction since the kids and I are the only ones that really use them and I'm about out of time.

In other news, I have a bad case of Spring fever. Every year it comes earlier and earlier.

2008 is promising to be a year of many changes. We hope to reclaim the basement and remodel the kitchen along with all of the regular maintenance type stuff that goes on in a 78 year old house. So far it looks like I'll graduate with my Bachelor's degree in May. I've got my fingers crossed anyway.

It must be the hear of the basement. One of my resolutions is also to reclaim our basement before it claims us!
Nice blog.

Sue, thank you! I love that picture. The sky is so stormy it still gives me goosebumps.
