Attempting to catch up again, story of my life

Goodness what a nightmare losing your Photopass + card, so glad you were able to get it and your photos replaced.

Wah the End is Near

I look forward to your updated every day. You are a great writer.

You are going to have to spill the deets about the new trip soon or I will go nuts without your posts.

Hope you have a productive day in your sewing room. I can't wait to see the completed stockings.

I just love reading about the Guerts girls going to WDW, so sad the trip is coming to an end. Your girls are truly blessed to have you as a mom. I just love reading your PTRs and TRs due to your enthusiasm for your girls, sewing, and planning your vacations together.

You truly are an inspiration, I know I wouldn't be sewing right now if I hadn't found your first PTR.

I've also heard it referred to as the Magical Depress. Either way, it is sad.

Your trip is over already? It seems like you just started. I loved reading about your trip ans seeing all the photos. Glad they could salvage the rest of the pictures on your photo pass.
I'm off work today. I had a doctor's appointment but it got cancelled because the hospital lost power due to a snow storm. It's using backup power so patient areas are okay.The doctors just can't see clinical patients. I was just for a checkup so I rescheduled for next week.
Everyoe in my store knew about that customer I told about. When I got in on Tuesday my fellow associates all sympathized with me. Apparently, other customers had complained about her to management.

3+1=Four more

As old as I am, my motherís even older , if you can believe such of a thing. My brother and I are now taking turns staying with her 24/7 and clearing out her house in preparation for my brother and his family to move in permanently.

Guess what Iíve found in the attic, under the rafters, hiding in the basement, out in the garage, and looking for love? Four sewing machines!!!! Well, actually I think three are sewing machines and the fourth has got to be the world's oldest embroidery machine.

I learned all I ever need to know about hijacking from Andrea and all I ever need to know about torturing readers, I mean offering enticing preview tidbits from you. So . . .

I now have three of the machines in my possession and expect to pick up the fourth tomorrow. Itís in a card table sized table and I donít know if it comes apart or not. I will certainly get you photos, and hope you wonít be too excited to sleep until I am able to post them, early next week hopefully.

Let's see, was I supposed to work in 'super secret' somewhere?

The one in the card table is more than likely a Singer Featherweight. Those tables were made especially for those machines. I have a Featherweight, but not a table. Can't wait to see pictures!

I was thinking the same thing! I have a featherweight in a table that I love They did make tables for some of the other machines - a 301 maybe?!

Santos sounds like he is a great CM and so good to see that after some of the cranky ones you had.
Yup - only a few more updates left... We loved Santos - he is awesome!

Just be careful and you will be fine... And take a picture of the back of your card - but no fear, they have other ways of finding your photos which are pretty painless.

I agree... It's always so sad to leave WDW... But I must admit - after 10 days... We were kind of ready to go home.

Thanks Liz... No worries - I will be starting a new PTR soon. Bummer about the cancelled Dr. appt - glad you were able to reschedule... Yikes about the snow!!! It's too early - it can stay gone until after Thanksgiving... and it can be gone again rigth after the new year. LOL I guess - it's not the snow I mind - it's the cold... Can't stand it!

That's too bad that everyone knew about that customer... Clearly she was not very nice.

Oooh - I LOVE zucchini!!! I eat it almost every day! We love Downton Abbey here - even though we have all seen it - it's so fun to watch again.

************************************************** ********

I had a super fantastic day in my sewing room yesterday... Despite putting the first stocking together backwards and having to rip it all out - the rest of them went together very nicely and I am making good progress. I now have 5 of them done... several cut out and ready to go... I won't be able to finish them this week - like I'd wanted to, but... If I can just get them mostly done, I can work on them on the side.


Our good friends and neighbors just got a new puppy - it's their 2nd Rodesian Ridgeback... They wanted MM to come over and play the other day - so I took him over to meet the puppy (his name is Logi)... MM was a bit indifferent at first... Then he was a bit scared... Then he just followed him all over... MM even let me hold the puppy and didn't seem to mind.


And one more photo of my MM who ISN'T supposed to be on the furniture at all... Naughty boy... Sorry the photo is so little - V took it with her phone and texted it to me... But it was so funny that I had to share.


Today - I will be working in my sewing room all day... I only have a bit of fabric left to work with the stockings... Since I added a few more to my list - I have more fabric on order, but it will be a few days before it's here.

I might run to town later and do a bit of grocery shopping.

I hope you all have a fantastic day today!

Day 10 Part A

Yup - here it is... Our final wake-up in Disney... Always such a sad day when you have to leave.

I woke at 6:30am. I showered and made coffee...

Thankfully we had packed mostly everything the night before, so we just had a few last minute items to pack this morning.


I woke Alli at 7am and Victoria at 7:30.

We went down to the food court to have our only CS breakfast of the trip.

D= Western omlette with potatoes
A & V = Pancakes/waffles/eggs/sausage

No notes about it being bad - so it must have been good?

We stopped in the gift shop one last time, we did not purchase anything.

We went back to our room and hung out for a little while... The girls really wanted to go back to sleep... I think Alli may have?


We packed up all of our last minute items & rolled the luggage out the door at 9:45am.

I checked us out of our room, while the girls went into the gift shop to purchase our last 3 snack credits for our trip home... Victoria got a lollipop, Alli chose Cheese-Its, and I had them get me a Mickey rice krispie treat.

ME arrived promptly at 10:00am

When the girls and I stepped on the bus - guess who was there???
