Mixed Bag

This holiday has been a mixed bag of birthdays, anniversaries, shopping, cooking, cleaning, taking care of grandkids, movies, wedding receptions, a big dental procedure on me, and several doctor visits for my husband. I'm exhausted and have to apologize for my inability to respond to all of your wonderful comments. The response to my giveaway has been amazing and I want you all to know that I've read every single comment in between all of the chaos in my life plus my carpal tunnel has been acting up quite a bit.

I really appreciate all of the wonderful birthday greetings and comments you left on my blog and at Moda's Bake Shop. It's brightened each day as I read your comments. Thank you too, to all of my new followers and I hope you've enjoyed your time here and will stop back in from time to time.

I had every intention of picking a winner today but alas, it hasn't happened and I'm going to fall in to bed after I publish this post. I've been at the insta-care with my husband who has another kidney stone causing him grief while trying to drop in on my dad's 80th birthday dinner during our wait at insta-care.

The GIVEAWAY is NOW CLOSED.

I will pick a winner hopefully tomorrow at some point but with church and a big extended family party for my dad's 80th it may have to wait for Monday after work before I can pick a winner. Keep an eye out for the winner announcement post.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Family first. I hope your dad has a happy birthday and that your husband passes this stone soon and gets some pain relief. They're what matter most :)

P.S. Hope your dental procedure went well. I always say I'd rather give birth again without any drugs than go to the dentist!

It sounds like there has been lots on your plate Kim. I hope that both you and your husband are feeling better and that the New Year brings some wonderful things to you and yours.
Regards,
Anna

Oh Kim! I hope it will all slow down for you. I know just what you mean -- I feel like my holiday, as wonderful as it was, was just running from one thing (or pile of dishes LOL) to the next. I'm SO ready to resume the routine. I hope your hubby is feeling better!

Here is hoping that your husband is on the mend soon :) Enjoy the 80th party, that sounds like a blast :)

I don't think I've witnessed anything more miserable than my husband with a kidney stone (twice). No fun at all.

I hope you are doing all right - enjoy your family today.

Where would I find the pattern for the bag? I tried to find it by looking up Handmade by Me but couldn't find anything.

Sending you positive thoughts and loving hugs.

I've heard that a man experiencing a kidney stone is the closest they'll come to understandng childbirth... hope he gets it out of his system soon! Without the need for surgery...

Happy birthday to your dad. It's good to celebrate this milestone and catch up with family and friends...

Hope your new year is filled with many happy times with family and friends, and of course a little sewing time too!

Hugs - Shari

Way to go! Moda Bake Shop is a great venue for fun projects. I especially liked making your gift bag, then shared the recipe with my Bee pals.
