Oh my! Where do I start? I haven't got any photos ready to show you so I'll try to keep this short & add pics tomorrow.
Unpacking. Check. Linens changed. Check. Laundry. Check. Plants watered. Check. Some cleaning. Check. I'm exhausted! There's always so much to do when DH has been on his own for three weeks.
My stitching room looks like a disaster area. I did manage to acquire some stash and a few special goodies. I also managed to stitch a few small pieces and worked on one BAP. Tomorrow I'm going to attempt to spend some time in there.
The mail has been sorted (DH doesn't do anything but pile it on my desk while I'm gone. Bill paying phobia I think!) There were several surprises for me. My last Quilt of Valor returned from the quilter. A wish from my wishlist was granted. I was gifted some really cute Santa charts.
I had also mailed home several boxes to myself. (so much cheaper than paying for another suitcase) I went a bit overboard shopping for new clothes. Some of you may know that I have lost over 50 pounds this year. The clothes were a necessity and there were so many wonderful shopping opportunities.
Now, this is a great story: After I had checked my bag at the airport a thought occurred to me. I could hardly lift that bag! Thank heavens it has wheels! ZAP!! I had lost more weight than that bag weighed. I was happy dancing all over the place! I can't imagine how I had ever carried all that extra weight on my bones.
On that note, I'm going to say good night. Time to go sit with DH & stitch while he watches the tube. Photos and more tomorrow...
