Besides the rocks

Yesterday's progress:

(4) chemises for Charlotte fully assembled.  Body seams, hems, and neck holes still need to be finished

(1) pair braes for Bob fully assembled with drawstring.  I feel like they should still be fuller to match the illuminations, but they've already got a truly ridiculous amount of yardage in them.  Sewing down the drawstring channel actually didn't take as long as I had thought it would.  There's a decent chance those might get done in time for Pennsic.

Somewhere in here I have to start cleaning the house.  For one thing, my cat-sitter is a coworker, and I would hate for her to see my wild disaster.  For another, it's just a huge downer to come home to a messy house.  We'll trash it within ten minutes of walking in the door to unload, but I like to walk in to it neat.

Yep. A neat house to walk in to with clean sheets on the bed. Absolutely essential for post-Pennsic comfort.

It'll be around midnight when I get in, so all I do is shower and hit the sheets. Unloading can wait till the morning.

The last few years we've altered our return drive to stop for the night in Wilkes-Barre - we're leaving site later so that we can help break down the common area, and that leaves us a little too tired to make it all the way home safely. So we usually hit the driveway before noon and he starts unloading while I start the 11,000 loads of laundry.

I like to get as much done as possible while the furry children are still snubbing us and before they become velcro kitties.

I agree whole-heartedly. I actually thought to schedule Monday off of work after this August's vacation, even though we'll be back on Sunday, just so we can clean up a bit.

Anything to avoid the one debacle where we entered the house and both thought we'd been robbed & ransacked... no, just one particleboard shelf had given up the fight, and the rest of that house, well it looked like that when we finished loading the car... Erk.
