Doing the chicken dance

A chicken with her head cut off, that is!

Sooo much is happening! First and foremost, we are moving. At the end of this month! So, you can imagine the mad scramble – to pack, to switch everything over, etc. Here is the crux though – we don’t know where we are moving to. We have decided we simply cannot afford to live here any more. Things are starting to look up financially, and we can do this, so we are. There are too many issues with this home (too small, too drafty, too moldy – that’s the big one) that it is the best time now.

So with that, I am trying to finish as much as possible as quickly as possible. I still have exchanges and rr’s I am committed to, so the sooner I can finish them, the better. I am almost done with the both the friendship exchange and the RR piece, and hopefully they will go out early next week. Then I will be working on the recipe exchange piece in between packing as I have a bit more time with that one.

So on to goals. For May, my goals were:

1) Finish Tribute – Done!
2) Stitch my RR piece – Started, finished, then restarted. Nearly done the 2nd version
3) Stitch Friendship exchange piece – Almost done!
4) Stitch recipe exchange piece – Nope. I finally got around to drawing names for that, though! ROFL! I am so not on the ball there!
5) Catalogue 5 magazines – Nope
6) Finish two ornaments – Not even close
7) Get 2 shells done in GBS – I didn’t even pick this piece up. Maybe in July.
8) Create 3 Artist Trading Cards for an exchange on the Wagon. – They are done, but waiting to be mailed. I am so horrible at deadlines. I must start making that a priority.

For June:

1) Finish RR piece
2) Finish Friendship exchange piece
3) Finish Recipe exchange piece
4) Pack the house, paint, repair any damage, clean out yard
5) Find time to WEED THE GARDEN!
6) Stay sane.

Wish me luck! lol!

5 items in my closet

    Oh my, oh my. Don’t forget to take a deep, long breath every now and then! I’ll be thinking of you, and definitely missing you – but it all sounds for the best!
    Wishing you the very best of luck with the packing and moving and all.

    I must agree Monitors and computer bits do tend to turn up in the most oddest of places but I must admit that is the oddest place – the bottom of the

    Wow, Christine!! Moving to who knows where at the end of the month. I’m sure it will all work out fine with lots of effort on your part, of course. Keep us informed as you search for a new home. πŸ˜€
