Off to the Beach... so Hold Those E-mails! The Dragon Has Flown the Coop!

I meant to write a blog entry last night, but this Milk assignment has actually kept me flying until now, just an hour before we are due to get on the road to drive to Bangor, Maine. Yeeeeeesh! I am sure that when the cheque arrives in the mail 45 days from now, this weariness will be a distant memory, but I am just getting TOO OLD to pull more than 2 late nights in a row!

I have no idea about accessing e-mail while I am down there, so I worry about the box overflowing, but hey... there is only so much you can do. If anyone reading this hears of people asking about me on the boards and why I am not answering... feel free to enlighten them! To all those whom I am going to see in just a few days, I can’t wait to meet you in person.

I can’t wait to go teach, get inspired and get rested!! Blogging can wait until the beaching is done!!

Looking Forward To The Great Escape...

About 48 hours from now I will be in a motel room trying to convince my kids to go to sleep because we’ll have to catch an early flight the next day. This time they get to come along and have discovered the perks of Mommy being a cross stitch designer. They get to come to Myrtle Beach again for the wonderful Lazy Daisy retreat! While some may think that there are warmer destinations for March Break... I know that even if the locals find it cold, it WILL be warmer than here and there WILL be less snow!!

The fact that Bethany has been on some heavy duty antibiotics since Saturday for a sinus and ear infection that produced a really high fever has somewhat tempered my excitement until tonight when she seemed to be getting better... enough to DEMAND that I play “Go Fish” with her instead of just lying there listlessly on the couch.

As much as I love sharing my thoughts with everyone here in the blog... and answering all the e-mails everyday to keep in touch with stitchers all around the world, this dragon is VERY much looking forward to getting away from it all and basking once the retreat is done for some pure family time!
