I'm here, I'm here!

I am so terribly behind! In my blogging, swapping, laundry*, etc etc! I only have a second before my lunch break is over but I have to share this fantabulous package that I got from Heather for the Aqua & Red Swap.

She was so thoughtful with her choices for my box. She had been reading Sew Little Thyme & picked the best stuff! My mom & I both at in love with the little bowls!** The chocolates were very yummy!

The bracelet is just so pretty! I have worn it like a dozen times already! I was telling Heather that because I make jewelry I hardly ever buy it for myself thinking or I can make myself that. Then of course reality takes hold, the “do to” list calls & I never get to it. So it was so nice to get
Her little tissue & lip gloss holders are just too cute! The little sketch book is going in my purse for when I need to jot done a fabulous idea for a new project. I have actually been looking for one just like it for ever! That little tiny lady bug is the cutest magnet. She also knew about my hair issues & made me that beaded flower hairpin & red stain ribbon headband. Also check out the tiny little Canada pin!
Also she was so cute because she put little tags on everything explaining why she choice it! I love it! I do that too sometimes! Also it was all wrapped in that beautifully yummy brown & Aqua paper! I have kept it too. I am trying to figure out how I might be able to reuse it. It’s just too pretty not to! I am also planning on framing that handmade card that she did such a great job making. It is really pretty & I think that it will make a fabulous addition to my sewing/guest room décor. Let’s see did I miss anything….oh yeah the Mary Kay Satins hands little kit, lip gloss & then these soap leaves (not MK)! I haven’t tried them yet but they smell really good!

I also told her that it came at the perfect time, as we got more “house problem” news that same day. Seems that we have a new deadline of Nov 1 before they will seek to condemn the house. Oh and get this little gem, prosecute us too! Fabulous! We may get to spent Christmas in the big house! 3 hots & a cot! Oh joy!

But seriously our attorney feels that they will have a snowballs chance in He** of actually getting any judge to go along with that but it’s still in the back of our minds. So we keep trusting that there must be a bigger reason for all this & taking comfort in the fact that we have done nothing wrong. We spent the last week & ½ preparing our response to that response from the township that they sent to the state, in response to our complaint. ***

So that is where we are at & why I have been MIA. Thank to all who have sent good thoughts & e-mails. I really appreciate it. It is a comfort to know that that there are still good people out there when you are only dealing with the crawled out from under a rock kind. Thank you, again!

* is anyone ever actually caught up on laundry? Come on really?

** I might have to check mom’s luggage before she leaves to make sure that she doesn’t sneak off with them! And the tissue holder for that matter. I saw her eyeballing that too!

*** Your keeping all this straight right? Because there will be a quiz at the end of the saga. So take notes!

I actually DO get caught up on laundry.... for about 45 minutes and then the piles begin again. Hmrph.

Why aren't they trying to prosecute, oh say, THE PEOPLE THAT BUILT THE HOUSE?

Lovely swaps. I'm totally in love with aqua and red now.

Pigs! All of them! Is that the way they think they are going to get the house? Prosecute you? Yes, prosecute those that built it, sold it, etc.

Loved the aqua& red swap too. Reminded me of a dress I had in the late '80's in an aqua color and wore a wide red belt with it and red shoes. Sigh...can't wear that anymore. Ah the good ol' days.

I'm so glad that you got such a lovely bundle of goodies, to help give you a boost during this most trying of times.

I can't help but think, however, that this will all be resolved in your favor - I mean, no other outcome seems to make any sense.... I'm just sorry that it keeps dragging out and hanging over your head. For your sake, I want it to be over and over NOW!

I agree, isn't there some sort of law that should make the seller of the house responsible? There should be!

I love your swap package - you got a lot of fantastic items!

Ah, I'm drooling over your swap package! Such pretty things;-)

I am so sorry to hear about the ongoing saga. I don't know how you keep it all together.

And the laundry? Mine is NEVER caught up. Ever.
