This Much Fun Is Hard Work

My bags are all packed and by the door, ready for a quilting retreat! All that's left to do is pack my suitcase and load the cooler. Whew! There's a lot of work and planning behind going away to sew for a weekend with your best buds. I always laugh when I have my bags all piled up like this and ready to load into the car, it reminds me of the time my husband helped me tote everything out of the house and innocently asked why it wouldn't just be easier for everyone to come and sew here! I replied that yes, it would be easier, but it certainly wouldn't be as much FUN. Anyone who might think that having fun is easy has never packed for a weekend quilt retreat. My husband is still trying to understand the concept.

Life is Good!

Apparently he hasn't ever packed all by himself for a VACATION? After all, that's what you'll be havin'! Enjoy, enjoy (and share when you get back please!)

So true.....kind of reminds me when the kids were little and we had to pack "everything" just to go out for the afternoon!
