Very Busy Weekend

And believe it or not I am still recovering. Yes, I know it's Tuesday.

It all started Friday I ended up taking the day off because I had so much to do. With such much going on this weekend I had to get a lot together. My parents were going out of town for a funeral, I was going to the swap, & then to a friend's baptism. I was going to try to get my haircut & oil changed (that didn't happen). Lots to do.

Being that my parent's were going to a the funeral and that I wasn't going to be able to make it due to the fact my best friend from 7th grade's husband was getting baptized, I made a card to send with my parents.

Stamps: Bella's Rose Tree Border & Gina K Framed Flowers; Paper: PTI Berry Sorbet & Sweet Blush; Other Supplies: Prismas, OMS, Misc Black Ink, PTI Berry Sorbet Saddle Stitch Ribbon, Scalloped Punches, Corner Rounder

Then where I drove to Covington (71 miles away), this is where my sister lives. When I got there after we ate dinner, I helped her finish up her swaps, organize everything, and then write up her directions. This is the first one she had ever been to. By the time we had gotten everything done we it was about 3 a.m. So you can imagine we were falling into the bed or collapsing.

Next morning around 8 a.m. we had to get up again so that we could get ready to go because we had to drive about an hour to get to the get together. HAHAHAHA. You'll understand why I'm laughing in a minute. We got on the road around 9:30 thinking we'd get there around 10:30. Ok, we got to the Woodstock area just fine but here comes the problem. We made a wrong turn and kept making loops, finally we were able to find someone to give us directions. What time did we get there you say? Around noon.

Although, we didn't get there until a lot later then we expected we had a great time. Pam & Maria did a great job organizing everything. Everybody did such a great job making everything.

Here are a few pictures of people.

So glad you finally made it to your destination and it looks like you had a great time. I'm so excited! I get to go to a swap next month. Thank goodness I went last year and it's in the same place. Still, I didn't drive last year and this I will.
Love your sympathy card but sad that you had to make one. Those are the hardest for me to make.
I hope life settles down for you!
