Crunch Time & Crunching has Proven Productive & A Stress Releif ~Another Sneak Peek~

Middle of the night to you all ...I hope you all had a wonderful weekend I did...
I have so much to talk about ..and no way will it all fit in one Blog..
Guess I'll start by saying I am down to Crunch time before my surgery day...I was worrying myself to death over this surgery but Thanks to a couple of Great Blog buddy's who have been extra supportive lately I managed to calm down and get focused..
When you own your own business and you're the sole worker there is much to planning ahead when you have to have surgery & recovery I spent Friday, Saturday and Sunday working on this huge list I made. First you have the what to do with the critters, who's taking you & picking you up. Then you have packing a suitcase, with your fav pillow & a good book to read. Then doing all the little things you know you won't be able to do for a while like cleaning the house, empty litter box, go to the grocery store, buy easy to fix foods, pick up meds at the drug store, Oh yea buy Critter food & kitty litter enough to last a while cause you can't lift, fill the gas tank in the van so on and so on...Oh yea might want to weed eat the 8" grass & weeds growing all the way around the trailer & shop cause if not it will be 2 feet tall by the time you can do it..LOL...
Then you have the business to consider. I created as much as I could get done..So then what? Do I list it all in hopes it sells so the bills get paid...But wait what if I can't pack it and ship it what then..?
Heaven knows I don't want ebay buyers to get all mad and leave me bad ratings and feedback..
I thought it all through.....talked to sister n law and she said she would help me pack, carry and load for the trip to the post office so I got that covered..

So I listed everything while ebay has free listing going on for the month of March and saved myself a few bucks in listing fees...

Peggy baked me what she calls Sugar Cookie Pockets so I have easy breakfast the first week.
They are so yummy..They are like the those expensive breakfast fruit filled pockets you buy, Toaster Strudels... She made me Cherry Filled, Apple Filled, Raisin Filled and Pineapple filled.
Makes my mouth water just thinking about them...I put each one in a baggie & froze them.
the house is clean, the laundry is done, the grocery shopping is done and the weeds are weed eated..
Tomorrow I will finish my list..and Tuesday I will deliver Puddles to his Doggy Sitter and then I will feel like I'm ready to take on this surgery and get on with recovering and getting back to work and being myself.

Before the Sneak Peek I just have to share another one of those Priceless moments with you.
Hailey came out the the shop last night and spent the night with me...She has her little bed on the shop floor and so when she couldn't stay away a minute longer she curled up on her little matt and of course little Miss lisa Kitty had to curl up with her...Another Priceless Moment caught on film!! They are both totally crashed!
 It's just one of those warm fuzzy moments that make you smile!

Now for my latest creations...Probably the last gatherings I will get to create for a while

~Primitive aged Roll Top Breadbox Gathering~

~Primitive Child Hood Memory Bench Gathering~

~Primitive Necessary Room Make Do Box Gathering~

 Tomorrow I hope to have time to put up a Special Rag Wrapped Easter Egg Sale blog for just my Blogging Friends. So if you are interested in any of the Rag Wrapped Eggs be sure to check that Blog. I will be offering a special price to all of you. Since I won't be working for a while maybe I can sell my Eggs and put a little in my piggy bank to use for the next few weeks.

Guess what else I did this weekend I took down the St Patricks Day Tree ornies and Decorated my Tree for I will be sharing my Easter decorations probably after surgery.. so stay tuned.

Time to bid you all a good night...Until we meet again may your day be filled with Happy moments!!

Prim Blessing and hugs to all
