Ahead Of The Game...

I am almost giddy!!! For once, I won’t be staying up until the wee hours of the morning to get ready to leave on a trip! I DID stay up late last night to get ahead and that’s when I posted the rambling little entry that was very much due to lack of sleep.

It was almost comical. I finished on the computer around 1 am and crawled up to bed, ready to just crash until the alarm at 7 am, only to have the first band of a massive 3 band thunderstorm roll through our province. Even as tired as I was, it is hard to fall asleep to brilliant flashes of light and massive claps of thunder. Erin was so scared that she crawled into bed with us during the first band and woke up during the power failure on the second band. I think we were all fairly groggy by the 3rd band...

Anyway, we are mostly packed and there is very little I can do now to suddenly design and produce something at the last second, so this is when I actually start to relax a bit. The time for second guessing is done, it is too late to start in on a drawing etc. So I am going to head upstairs and have a nice warm bath, get to bed at a reasonable hour and wake up to get on the road tomorrow. We only have to get as far as Bangor, Maine, so that is a bearable 4 1/2 to 5 hours. I am pretty sure that the hotel in Charlotte has a common internet access area, so I will be able to blog about some of our adventures, but probably not include any pictures.

This is the time when I can actually get excited about the show because the pressure is off a bit. Now I just have to see how the new designs do and what the response is, but the kids are SO excited just to be going back to such a neat city that they couldn’t care less how many patterns Mommy sells... Smart Girls!

Hi Jenn! I've been "lurking" in your blog for a while now...I love reading about your designing adventures, and your cute little family. I'm always on the lookout for people "sharing" patterns illegally, but I'm just not devious enough to catch them....
Have fun in Charlotte!!
