So quickly you fall behind

Have you ever noticed how quickly- and how easy it is to fall behind in your daily life? Nora has been sick for about 5 days, 3 very bad and the last two have been mostly recovery. For the last couple of weeks I have been working really hard on getting and keeping the house clean. Trying to get it to the point where the though of random visitors won't make me break out in a cold sweat. I was doing really good too!

But somehow, with Nora waking up in the middle of the night with fevers and me fretting over her in the day time- I have managed to let the house reach epic proportions again. How does one family create such a mess in just 5 days? Seriously! It can't all just be Nora and I!

Oh yes, and then there is the search for the missing camera equipment. My transfer cable is missing as are a few other items. Nora- learn to talk so you can tell mommy where you stashed her transfer cord...please?

The Renaissance Fair is here in town. I always love the Ren Fair. I think I will miss it when we move. Nora and I went yesterday to spend some time with a young friend who was there waiting for her family to get back into town. The Chinese School was doing fund raising by painting your name or whatever you wanted in Caligraphy. I got "Dragon" and all three of our names done. It is pretty cool! I even managed to get them home without smearing the ink or wrinkling the paper. Then Nora found my purse this morning and managed to wrinkle them. Oh well. Maybe I can Iron the wrinkles out of the paper. I will just have to make sure the iron doesn't have any water in it!

I will get back into the saddle later today or tomorrow and catch up on my farmgirl blog-a-thon posts.

Hey! And if you have any ideas for future posts, please let me know! I am working on some yummy recipes for using MaryJane's Chill-Over powder so stay tuned! How does Chocolate Silk and Lemon Mousse Pie sound? Yummy!
