What a week! (or The one with the whine)

I had a show today (and tomorrow) and its been a bit hectic! I'm so excited for Tuesday, the kids will be back in school, and the first round of shows will be over, a good cuppa and some lovely blog reading is awaiting me!

All good things must come to an end, and so it happened with my USB port. The constant plugging and unplugging of the camera, iPod, and printer (by the not so little hands of my darling children) has taken its toll, and it has been completely pulled out of the computer. I have to take it in to the Geek Squad, as I can no longer print or upload (Just in time for not only my show, but also the Science Fair, arrrrrrrgh!) The Science Fair is like a full time job, so I will affectionatley remember this week as Hell Week, and I'm sure there is a very special place in heaven for mothers, where they hopefully they serve a good stiff margarita. Hey, at least I don't have to eat a live goldfish, there's always a bright side.

On top of that, we had relatives from Ireland visiting this week, which was absolutley fantastic, they are so much fun, and we don't get to see them nearly enough, but as I was cooking dinner for them, my dishwasher began smoking, and it turns out the control panel MELTED. When it rains, it pours, right? So dishes by hand, a big hole where my dishwasher should be until we get a chance to go get another one, and after my show tomorrow I'm hosting a jewelry party. I have 3 hours though between my show and the party, so hopefully I can pull it off.

I wish I could share some pics of my booth, because it turned out really cute, but it will have to wait. Can't wait to see all of everyone's new goodies, and to finish up my ornaments for the Deck the Halls swap!!
