HOWDY ALL (FROM MY CHAIR IN THE FRONT ROW OF THE WORKAHOLICS ANONYMOUS MEETING) - Yowza! I know I'm preachin' to the choir here, but have you ever had one of those weeks where it felt like you were trying to fit 2 weeks of stuff into one? Ack! I had one of those weeks THIS week in fact. Feels like payback for that week of vacation I took recently. I now know why I'm such a home body. I have WAY too much stuff to get done!
I have one of those desks at work that is a magnet for unfinished stuff that no one else seems to want to take care of. I've looked all over the office for a sign that says PLACE YOUR UNWANTED WORK HERE, RYAN WILL TAKE CARE OF IT, but alas none was found. I swear someone plops it on my desk as soon as I leave the building. I get a list of phone messages that's a mile long with notes from so and so about this and that. I think other folks are perfectly capable of answering questions around here. Even the simple yes and no ones!! Everyone's standard reply is, "Mr. Walsh is away this week, we'll take a message and when he returns he'll call you back." Arghhh!!
I LOVE my job. Being busy certainly makes the work week go by faster, but does anything get done around here when I'm gone?!?!
I feel like pulling a daffy duck, wohoo-ing and bouncing around all over the place. Ha! Well, thanks for letting me get that off my chest. And thanks to those who wrote asking me if everything was OK because they haven't heard from me in a while. I'm still here working through all this. I don't have that terrible flu that everyone's been getting lately. Well wishes go out to everyone who has been down and out with that. Yuck!
I managed to miss my opening yet again for the Doll Quilt Swap over on flickr. John (Quilt Dad) sent me a message that signups were now open. I got it the day before we were leaving for vacation. I didn't have time to fulfill all the requirements so I'll have to follow along for now.
I've also had many questions from folks asking me where that second fabric shop is I found on the Outer Banks. It's called Funtastic Fabrics. I didn't get a chance to visit it, but here is the address if y'all want to check it out. 102 Chicahauk Trl, Kitty Hawk, NC 27949-3519. (252) 261-7393
