So Busy!!!!

When I last left you I was running out the door to Bunko. I will try to update you in one quick blog....

Let's start with Bunko, fun as usual, as if a night out with your girlfriends could be anything other. Here are some of the topics we touched on...Posh, summer reading, our friend's leukemia, husbands, Big Brother, children, mothers-in-law, the up coming season of Project Runway, boob jobs and tummy tucks, we could solve all the problems of the world given enough time!
For this next part, beware, this is how I talk and without taking a breath!
We stayed home this past weekend the forecast for the shore was not looking bright...we went to the athletic club/pool on Saturday, MBM and I worked out, ate lunch in the cafe, MBM took the girls to the pool and I went to Costco...I will never go to Costco on a Saturday afternoon again!...Sunday was rainy, I slept in while MBM ran 22 miles in the pouring rain...we cleaned out the guest bedroom, Emma will soon be moving into her own room, more on that later...that clean up lead to a major clean up/out of all the storage areas of our house...we had a lot of junk...I have been sewing a lot...I finished and shipped bags for two weddings, seventeen bags in all...
I finally, after 3 years, with my machine have all the components for embroidery...I skipped the classes and taught myself how to use it...I've been monogram something everyday...I took my first Spinning class at the gym, Holy Crap, after the first 15 minutes I thought I was going to pass out, puke, or cry...I finally started to drop some weight from all this working out...the sunflowers that MBM and Caroline planted from seed, bloomed by the playhouse...

Lulu went to the shore with my parent today, we will meet her there on Friday...The big girls are in Theater Camp this week, as if we need more drama in this house...I bought a cutting table for my studio, best $50 I have ever spent!...My friend started her treatment this week, so far so good!

Okay that should do it!
