I'm terrible. When I'm doing something I get so focused on it that I can't seem to do anything else. This Easter Charity is taking a lot out of me. Not that I mind, I love the charity, but I miss posting a lot and talking with all of you. So I'm not ignoring anyone, just busy, busy, busy with RL. You're all in my thoughts though. Does that count? The charity is going well. We're doing stuffed animals in backpacks with Easter goodies to go along with the Easter dinner. In my walk-in closet, I have 66 stuffed animals for the cause. :) All donated. My friend and I are doing a total of seven boxes for the shelter. We're going to be very busy in April. BUt everything is paid for except the hams for the dinner. We are set that way. Geeze, I love when a plan comes together and actually works. I'll probably drive you all nuts with news about the charity once it's over and done with. Have a good March and April. I will pop in when I can.

Hugs, Patt

Awww, it's lovely to hear from you. I guessed you were up to your eyes with the Easter charity though - it sounded like a mountain of work when you first mentioned it. Yet here you are, mostly sorted and all in control - how amazing you are!

Please don't forget to take some time for yourself here and there - put your toes up and let somebody else take the load now and again. Or else! ♥

Big hugs, my love. You never cease to amaze me - I want to be like you when I grow up! *hg*

I decided today I would post something and the charity wouldn't end without me for one day. :) Well, I hope not anyway. *grin* We're having a great deal of fun and I have a helper this year, so it makes it much easier to do. Yes we have a lot to do, but we're doing it together. Thank God for friends. :)

I've got a helper this time and she is an angel. So we're going to do just fine helping the other one out when we need to. Woot.

I have a friend helping me and that took a lot off my shoulders. She's very organized like I am, so we rock together. :) It is going well and we're having fun.

It sounds like a wonderful thing you are doing. Real life is more important, anyway. :-)

It's a super wonderful thing that we're doing. It'll be twice a year from now on. Christmas and Easter. Or Easter and Christmas. *grin*

You're a good woman, Patt. As others have said, make sure you take some time for yourself. You do so much good, you don't want to burn yourself out.

Yesterday was a total day off from everything. It was wonderful. So relaxing. Tuesday we have tons to do for more shopping but now that I have KC helping me, it really works out better.

It's turning out so well. My brother, Chris, donated all the backpacks that we needed for the kids. We couldn't believe he did that. We're going to fill the backpacks with school things and Easter things and they will have a blast. :) I'm so grateful to everyone that helped. Oh heck, I'm grateful to everyone for just letting me vent now and then. :)
