Nothing Quilty to Report

Sewing a bit on the binding for Cerulean Sky was as close as I came to something quilty today.  With Kurt gone again I'm on both Mommy and Daddy detail.  Science Fair projects are due this week so I spent some time after dinner helping Ryan finish off his board.  Anna's is due on Friday, so I'll help her tomorrow.  Everything is done for both, it just needs the final proof reading and printing so it can get glued down and turned in. 
Tuesday is always a meeting at work, so Sydney came with me to that while Anna did Art Club and Ryan did Lego Club.  I went to help out with that as soon as my meeting was done.  This weekend is the big competition so it is all about finishing up all the last minute details. 
I did have a little time for me amongst all the kids activities.  I went out to lunch with my good friend Meisje and we got to catch up a bit.  We used to run together every Saturday, but she had knee surgery and I got lazy busy, so now we have lunch instead.  That little bit of calm is all that is keeping me going right now.  The kids have just headed off to bed and I need to write a test and type up the Lego script before tomorrow.  I've said it before, but I salute all the single parents out there who manage to handle all of this alone on a regular basis.  It's been two days and I'm a bit batty already.

Thank heaven for kids' bedtime. And I agree with you, single parents deserve big kudos.

You certainly have got your hands full at the moment. Roll on the weekend.

Hang in there. I can so relate. I have twins and until recently my husband was away about 60 - 70% of the year. It was tough but at least I always knew he was there on my side even if not in person and always on the end of the phone. SIngle parents deserve a medal!

You said it! Hats off to single parents!

A little bit longer and Kurt will be back; you have made amazing quilty progress this month already and we aren't quite half-way done. Once everyday-normaility returns, you'll be sewin' up a storm again!

Keep your chin up
