Where do I begin? . . . It's been a week of lots of stress and challenges. After 8 weeks of my kitchen being torn apart and lots of issues with our contractors I was left with the very unpleasant task of having to fire them. It's a long and sorted story and I don't want to bore you with all the details but I assure you we gave them too many chances to get their act together and in the end they ran out of chances. So, now I am left with an un done kitchen and several mistakes that need to be fixed. . . ugh! Lets see what else. Yesterday I spent the morning in the ER with Abby after she got bit by our cat which was also a series of unfortunate events. She is fine but her hand is all bandaged up and she is confined to the house for several days because the Dr. doesn't want her in the sun with the meds she is on. Needless to say a cooped up Abby is a very unhappy Abby. The girl loves to be outside!!! There have also been several other little bumps not worth whining about but on a whole add up to a really stressful week. The good news is I have been sewing, and the kids school curriculums have been ordered and we are all really excited for their arrival. It's going to be so nice to not have to think quite as hard any more. Today, I just want to spend the day baking some yummy treats with my kids and spending time in my studio.
