Prepping to Help with the Nieces

Meanwhile, my mom and step-dad have taken off on a cruise for the week. They were even going to dress up for Halloween on the ship. My mom decided to go back to her roots and do the hippie-thing. She even requested that I make a few accessories for her costume. My step-dad was simply going to wear this t-shirt.

While I am going to be over there all week, I don't know what my posting schedule will be like. They don't have wireless, so I'll be working from an air-card most of the time. Of course, I also don't know exactly what I'll be working on yet since I'm having a hard time trying to figure out what of my supplies to pack. I've known this week would be like this for MONTHS and have seriously been trying to figure all of it out in that amount of time. You'd think I'd have a plan by now. NOPE! Instead, I have a general outline for what I need to get done today. It looks something like this.
A. Wash clothes
B. Clean out litterboxes
C. Load and run dishwasher
D. Clean bathrooms
B. Electronics and chargers
C. Craft supplies
And, that's it. That's my day today. Fortunately, I got pictures taken and edited of everything I currently have made. So, I can spend some time this week writing descriptions and listing them, hopefully. I know the girls will keep me busy in the afternoon/evenings but while they're at school I'm hoping to get some work done. I guess I'll be getting a taste of parenthood this week. It'll be interesting. I think it's the early mornings that have me worried the most. I'm NOT an early riser by any means. I've already toyed with just staying up all night working and then napping while they're at school. It could work. . . maybe.
For now, let me try to get back on a regular link posting schedule. First, some crafty links. The theme for today's link? Crafty Home and Garden:
- Retro-style birdfeeder tutorial
- Easy cake stand video
- Make your own cookie cutters
- Egg carton fairy lights
- Cool cardboard picture frames
- bloopers from Friends (my personal favorite TV show)
- Young me, now me is a site where people recreate pictures of themselves as kids in same poses/places.
- Bumper stickers for the parents of gamers
