Can I Get A Do-Over?

I hate to be a "Debbie Down-er", but this week is just not going very well so far...

First, I completely goofed on the date of Illinois Bloggirl Gathering event!  I thought it was the 13th (this past Sunday) and it's actually the 19th (this Saturday).  So what does silly me do?  Yep, I drive out to the host's house on Sunday, ring the bell, only to find out I have showed up for the party ON THE WRONG DAY!  How embarrassing?!  Not too mention I am disturbing this entire family on a Sunday morning.  It pretty much  felt like one of those dreams where you are only wearing a towel in public!  The host was very understanding though, and we got to chat for a bit and laugh about it, so that made me feel better.  How did this happen?  I guess you could say,

1 baby + 1 stressed new mom + moving 
= insanity

Then, comes the sore throat...did I mention Maggie was already sick?  Well, I guess I caught her cold, because I have been sick now for 2 days.  Ugh.  We're moving this Saturday (which now means I can't attend the the blog event...even on the right day) to the new house.  This is just not the time to be sick, with so much to do.  But, I will say, before I got sick, I was able to get the living and dining room painted at the new house and it looks so much better in the new creamy white shade!  

The color I chose was, "Toasted Marshmallow", by Behr

I'll be absent from posting and checking e-mail for the rest of the week,  while we get ready to move and start settling into the new place.  I look forward to catching up with everyone soon and sharing some photos of the new house! 

Hope you all have been having a much better week than me ;)

Don't worry, I do things like that all the time, truly. But I'm so sorry you're going to miss out on the actual event, and that you're sick. Hope you feel better really soon. Look forward to seeing pictures,

oh bummer! we all have days like that, and yes, you can always start anew. every day is a chance to do over, so put it behind you and trudge onward!

Elyse said...

aw, hang in there. at least you sound like you can already joke about it all. try to get some rest and takeout because moving can be very disruptive BUT it will all be so worth it!


Vicki @ Curly Willow said...

Hang in there sweetie! Tomorrow is another day... I am always so thankful for that.

You poor thing! I hate it when I get the date wrong. One time my sister and I were taking a red eye out of Denver which is 1 3/4 hrs away with our childeren, ages 3,1, and 6 mos at the time. We got there at 9:30 pm for an 11:00 pm flight.....a day early!! We were still able to leave but absolute panic set in first!
I hope you feel better for your big move. I can't wait to see the new pictures.

Sorry you're feeling sick. Thanks for stopping by and "pumping me up." As a former teacher, I'm glad you understand.

While you're very busy with the move, I'm sure you're also extremely excited too! Good luck, and have a blast!

I feel for you. Moving is so hard, especially with a little one. I hope things go more smoothly for you and your move is stress free (if there is such a thing!) Good luck!

I'm sure your move will go smoothly...well I hope so. It's an exciting time!

I will be missing the luncheon, too, but I am really hoping to make the Shop The Shed Sale. I went last Fall and got some really nice things.

Have a good weekend!

Hey Stacey, hope your move goes well and that you're feeling better soon too!

Just wanted to thank you for the Phoenix shopping tips! I was able to visit both of your favorite shops and I loved them! I'll post soon about my treasures! I may just run into you there one day...if we get the condo! ~Deb~
