Huston...We Have A Problem....

You would think after the fiasco of what I now call the "Summer of the BOW's"  I would learn that summer time in this girls life should NOT include BOW's.  I was so smug when I had immediately finished week 1 within the week it arrived!  Then LIFE HAPPENED...which means my Labrador Retriever brain was distracted by sooooo many other things.  The result is I have not been able to attend any of my quilt groups on a regular basis...which then amounts to...no BOW's being done!  Now I have a tidy backlog of 6 weeks of projects and they are going to keep coming...sigh...While living in Bend I had some anonymity when it came to the mail person.  She did not know me from Adam...just knew that whoever belonged to the box never picked up her mail.  She didn't know that I developed mail phobia with the continued pile of BOW's that arrived each week.  But now, I live in a town of 2,000 and my mail person knows me personally.  There is no way to sneak in and as a result I feel compelled to pick up my BOW's.  Yikes, Huston we have a problem...


 
I was feeling stressed, depressed and wondering why the heck do I do this every summer...when I received this photo of my grandsons from their dad with the caption, "We peed in the pool!"  Made me laugh out loud and relax about all those packs of BOW's.  It is all in the perspective.
