Plus, I haven't been doing too much of anything as my allergies are full blown. I've been taking allergy medicine and feel like I'm a walking zombie. I get home and don't want to do anything. I have to make myself do anything. My eyes are the worst. I can't even wear makeup as my eyes water and burn so much. I love Spring but it sure doesn't like me. Enough of my woes though. I just can't get it together to think about too much right now. Maybe when it's Summer and hotter than H! I'll be inside buzzing around with my sewing machine....
Sunday afternoon, there was an official one year birthday party for Carmen. We went to the park for and had a great time with her. The older kids fed the ducks and walked beside the water and the oldsters sat around and watched. Then we had cake and ice cream and watched Carmen tear into her gifts. It was alot of fun and so good to see family on both sides.

|She loved reading the cards. She wanted to kiss all the little animals on the birthday cards.|
After the party, my DH and I took the other three grandkids with us to eat BBQ and another park over by their house to play while their parents went to the Ranger game. That was fun too but I was a tired puppy when we got home! It was midnight and I didn't want to do anything but go straight to bed!
Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday was nothing special. Just work like crazy so I can take off work for Thursday and Friday to go on retreat. That's right, you heard me, it's retreat time. I am ready for it too! Well, my body and spirit are ready. I'm not ready yet as I haven't even decided exactly what I'm taking so I need to get off of this and get ready to go. I'm heading out in about three hours so I have to get it together. Usually, I have everything ready and the car packed the night before but I was so tired last night when I got home, I sat down to read the mail and that's where I stayed. I woke up and went to bed and set the alarm to get it together today. So, that's what I'm doing in a few minutes. I'm going to have some me time....Yeah, 4 whole days to sew and be with my friends. So, hopefully, I can show you some great things when I get back. Everyone, have a great week and get some sewing time in. Til next time, happy sewing!
