A monkey wrench in my plans...

Things have been going really well for me this last week! I've kicked past my motivation barrier to dive into my PhDs and doing well. My CCC group has the wheels in motion to get going on a Row Robin together for next week. I made some appointments for this week, including renting a quit machine on Friday, and I've been in the process of mentally preparing myself to have my dad stay with us, and to set things up for him here, while Mom is in the hospital with her knee replacement surgery next week on the 28th...

So, where is the monkey wrench in all this you may ask? Well, Mom called this morning asking if I was ready to have Dad tomorrow...?... Tomorrow?!?...?... TOMORROW!!!?

Seems that Mom got a call regarding a cancellation, and was asked if she wanted to take that cancelled appointment at 8am tomorrow... on the 19th. Big sigh... 8-/

Now plans/appointments have to be rethought/replanned, and I may not be on here much for the next while... Will be busy with my dad while Mom is in the hospital, and more so once Mom is home. I will be at their place a lot helping as much I can... Hmmmm...? Maybe, if time proves to be available, I could bring my Pfaffy there for a few weeks...? 8-)

I managed to get my borders on my Hollyhock, and had big plans to get my hummingbirds on, and get it quilted today, but there are beds to changed and prepare, rooms to clean, shopping to do, etc...

Get working on those PhDs ladies! You/we can do it!!!
Happy stitchings! 8-)
Back when I can!

hmmmmmm, Monkey Wrench..... do I see a new quilt in your future??

I really hate when things like this happen - things are rolling along and *crash* !!!! You hit a brick wall...... Well, this is a good thing really. Your mom will start healing alot sooner than planned and this will all be a memory soon. Hugs for you though. It's not going to be an easy time, but we will be here waiting for you. And we might all surprise you and show off some finished PhD's!!!
Take care of yourself Myra.

Oh, sorry you lost your day on the longarm! :-( Hope your DM's surgery goes well and she has a good recovery!

Hugs to your mom. Tell her that I'm thinking of her. Hope all goes well.

Your dad is pretty easy going; he'll be okay with whatever you have time to prepare for his stay.

If you'll be spending days at your parents' apartment after the surgery, definitely take your machine. Three bored people in one apartment would not be good!!

Hope all goes well for your mum, and for you as you care for her and your dad.

Remember, quilting is a hobby, and it will be there waiting for you without judgement or deadlines for you when you have time again.

I hope everything is going well with the surgery and the healing is quick and easy! I also hope it's not too much trouble helping dad and mom soon!

I'll have a couple of my own finishes coming up that you will have to check on after you return to surfing to help keep us all motivated. -wink-

Oh dear. At least your mum doesnt have time to think about it. Hope all goes well for your mum and you. You need ten minutes a day for yourself. A little stitching????
