Beads Revisited

My bags are almost packed and I am getting ready to go. On Thursday morning I am driving down to Milwaukee to join my former boss at the Bead & Button Show. For three wonderful days I get to play with beads again. I cannot wait, to tell you the truth. The beading business is the part of my old life I truly miss. I am working on my shopping list to get my basic supplies organized. And I promised to bring back something shiny for one of my staff and silver crimp ends for my niece.

Unfortunately my little beading retreat is threatening to turn into a stressful event. Aside from Bead & Button, I have agreed to a family reunion, the Locust Street Beer Run, and driving to Wausau and back late Friday night to pick my husband up at the airport. He is returning from a week long training in Denver. It's my own fault. I always do this. Not wanting to disappoint anyone, I try to find a way to make everyone happy. And I usually do. Everyone but me.

A woman in her forties should know better, don't you think?

I hope you have fun--you need to delegate some of the work to others so you can be happy too!

As you get more into those forties, you'll probably get better at saying that "no" word:)
I hope you have a great time. I would love to play with beads.

OMG! A weekend with beads... I would be bankrupt when I went home, IF HeMan Hubby let me come home that is! LOL!

I tell him it could be worse, I could be addicted to drugs or alcohol instead of beads and yarn and... ben & jerry's... he says the drugs or alcohol would probably be less expensive.
He may have a point... but I'm not giving up my beads!
Stopping by from SITS... have a great day!
