It's Insanity Time...

It's Croptoberfest Week at my house and that means one thing--insanity. This is the fifth year (non-consecutive) I've been to Croptoberfest (an annual scrap retreat in the mountains near Gatlinburg)'d think I'd eventually get a sense of how to prepare but I don't. Everything always gets pushed to the last minute and I spend the last few hours before leaving totally freaked out...flittering about from thing to thing making no discernable progress on anything at all. Somehow, tho, we always get there in one piece and have an amazing time.

Anita's spending the night with me tonight and she and Leigh Ann and I will leave Thursday morning for our weekend away. Scrapbooking is the premise under which we say we are going...but really it's the fun. I'm not sure I'm even taking any scrap stuff. :)

So have a good weekend everyone...Carla and Sabrina, we'll be missing you!

And Julie Parker, should you happen to be reading blogs again, not an hour will go by that we don't think of you and miss your sweet face this weekend. It won't be the same without you, my friend. Your gift of Croptoberfest goes on, even while you are around the world. But I'm glad you are where you are, making a difference in the world. We'll raise a blazing s'more in your honor on Saturday night and probably cry a few happy tears for you too. You are in our hearts and we love you. God be with you Townsend, TN and Jos, Nigeria and all points in between.

I'm so jealous!!! Have fun! What do you mean you might not take scrap stuff??? Crazy-nut!

And bear with me but since I have slow dial-up I want to comment about another post. Thanks for pointing out that reptile store so I can avoid it! LOL I would have a heart attack!
