Sometimes you just have to let it go!
Yep -- I had big plans -- by this morning, I would complete everything I needed to do. I'd have super-looking new T-shirts to wear and projects to show off, and well --- I don't. And I'm OK with that. I got a good part of it done, but not all. The world will live!
I got all the homework follow-ups completed except one. I might get that last one or part off before leaving.
Yes -- this morning marks the idiotic schedule that is my March. I was supposed to be off to a week-long sewing retreat this morning. Instead, I'm off to work at a meeting, but I'm OK with that as it's a networking opportunity, and there is lots of stuff to share. It would have been nice to have everything done, but that wasn't possible!
Then after the day ends, I'm off to the retreat. I will have a "few" presentations to prep and present while at the retreat, but that's OK. It couldn't be helped, and I was too kind and tried to accommodate everyone. I know -- that is NOT the right thing to do because I have to pack the car with a ton of things, and I have to "give up" my sewing time to do the presentations.
There is some give and take here, so I won't complain. I packed part of the car last night, and since I parked so close to the side of the garage, I can't open the back hatch, so I have to move the car this morning and pack the rest. It's all sitting in the hallway, ready to go, and if I forget anything, I'll make it up as I go along! Yes -- it's nice to have visuals, but sometimes you just have to talk through it with nothing but your brain!
We had the MOST amazing sessions in the morning. One on EQ8 and the other on Digital cutters. It's so exciting to see the lightbulb moments in both classes. Don't get me wrong -- I LOVE to sew, but the fact that we can incorporate all this technology and software into the mix? I'm in there like a dirty shirt -- just like my Dad!
I should share some pictures with you, but not today. And I had a brainstorm last night. I still need to put some images into my presentations for this week, and how will I do that when I'm away? DUH --- all my pictures are on an external hard drive on my computer. Eject that thing and take it with me. Sometimes, I'm so dense, and then I have a lightbulb moment! I just have to remember to do that when I finish the blog.
All I can say is thank goodness this wasn't my house, as this was the driveway of the house two doors down. But if you insist on putting your snow in the street, you can expect it to return and bite you!

And that wraps it up for me this morning. I will drop off a library book when I walk the girls together. Then finish packing the car -- remember CLOTHES which is always the LAST thing I pack. Then I must dress up a bit, and I'll be off!
Have a super day!!!
