I've Been A.W.O.L. Again ....

Hi There,

I've been running around like a headless chook again this week (for those of you who don't know ... sorry ... a chook is Aussie slang for a chicken !!). I've barely had time to scratch, let along blog. I hope you have all been well, and I plan on checking out your going-ons in the next couple of days.

Chicky had her end of year dance concert on Friday night, and today is the second one ... a mattinee. We will be slicking down her hair with hair product in the next hour, pinning on a hair piece (her hair is very fine, and won't curl well, so I bought a gorgeous curly pony tail for her a few years ago ... looks real, matches her hair colour perfectly !!), and plastering on the stage makeup. Sounds awful ... but she really looks stunning done up for the stage !! The costumes are just gorgeous, too.

I spend last week, after returning home from our long wekend away, preparing costumes, taking Chicky to dance class, typing, laundry, housework, shopping ... generally keeping busy !!

I hope to be back on track with my blogging eventually ... I know, I have been saying that for quite some time now !! It is just such a busy time at the moment ... stop the bus, I want to get off !!! I am enjoying it all, though, and seem to thrive with the pressure of time lines and dead lines. I seem to get more done, the less time I have. Go figure !!

Anyway, better hop off now and get a few things done, before starting the concert preparations.

I wish you all a wonderful rest-of-the-weekend, and a great week ahead.

Take care,

Hi Meow. Yep, it's the silly season alright, when everything happens at once! I have one granddaughter finishing school this year, another going into grade 11, another starting high school next year and my eldest grandson becoming engaged! That's two formals and an engagement party. On top of that, we are hosting the pre-Christmas get together this year for friends, plus there is the work Christmas party and all the other little things in between.

Then we wonder why we're so exhausted in January!!

I wanna get off, too!!

Well I am glad you made it back. But you know us bloggers are to hard on ourselves. Always figuring we have to keep up with a daily post. I don't know how some of the bloggers out there do it.

There is this wonderful blogger in Ontario Canada, who blogs everyday, cans a variety vegetables, has time to bake wonderful pies, send gifts to people all around the world, and take pictures of it all to boot and post it on her blog. Dang I feel so inadequate!!!

My what you can and what you want to!!!

Cheers...have a grand week!!

Jean-Luc Picard said...

Always on the run, Meow!

PEA said...

So....haven't been doing much have you!! hehe Gosh, Meow, it's no wonder you haven't had time to blog, so many other things are taking over your time!! Hope you can take pictures of Chicky while she's performing?? Would love to see some:-) Don't worry about not being able to visit us or posting more frequently...we're not going anywhere:-) xoxo

Meow said...

Greeneyes ... what are you doing awake at 3.30 in the morning, with 4 cups of coffee under your belt ... any wonder you aren't asleep. I'm glad you are enjoying the dvd, and were able to capture pics ... never tried that myself !! Get some sleep, girl !!

Qualicum RN ... thanks for dropping by, it is always a pleasure to meet new blog friends. I know what you mean ... I used to blog daily, but simply cannot these days. I should stop feeling bad about it, shouldn't I !!!

Jean-luc ... yep, sure am.

Daybyday ... thanks, will do.

Pea ... thanks. Took a couple, but need to doctor them abit before I can post them ... don't want to post other people's kids without their permission !!

Take care, Meow
