I Meant To Write . . .

I know I said I wouldn't be writing as much because of the fitness routine and lack of quilting time, but I didn't mean that I'd go all week without a peep.  But then again, I didn't think I'd go all week without setting foot in the Sweat Shop or doing anything else I usually do either.  But this week has been crazy with working overtime.

You know I'm NOT a morning person, right?  Well, this week's been so crazy I've been up at 6 a.m. most of the week and out the door to work between 6:15 and 6:30 a.m.  Yes, I've still been going to CrossFit, but then I've gone back to the office right afterward and worked until around 9 p.m. just about every night.  Then I've gone back home for a bite to eat, spend 40 minutes on the exercise bike, pack a bag for the next day's CrossFit, pack another bag with my make-up and hair "stuff" (because the whole traffic thing works better if I finish getting ready AT the office), take a bath, and go to bed.  But I think I'm done now--except I need to go into the office for a couple hours tomorrow--actually, by the time you read this, it will be "today," Saturday.

Why has it been crazy?  Well, I was asked to work for another attorney and we hired a new secretary to work for the young guy I'd been working for.  And most of us secretaries usually have a backlog of a few days worth of less urgent tasks to be done.  So I've been trying this week to get everything done, including keeping up with my normal daily tasks and rushes, so I can turn the desk over without dumping a lot of stuff on the new gal.  It's hard enough to learn all of the new computer programs and routines without facing a pile of "old" work someone's left.

So, when I go into the office tomorrow, it will mostly be to move everything from one desk to another and get everything set up so I can hit the ground running again on Monday--because there's always a lot to do and deadlines to meet.  But I hope I won't be getting to the office on Monday while it's still dark, and hopefully I can head home after CrossFit.

AND yes, I plan to spend Sunday sewing--and probably some of the day Saturday too.  Which brings me to Scrap Basket Sunday.  Here's Mister Linky for those of you who have posted something about your scrappy projects on your blog and want to link up--just add your name and copy your blog address from your computer address bar.  "See" you tomorrow, and I hope to have something scrappy to show.

I know how hard it can be to find time to quilt when work is crazy busy. I hope you have a relaxing Sunday of sewing!
