Move Out Day!

Today, which will probably be the hottest day of the year, my hubby and I are driving down to Cal U to load up Rach's dorm room things to bring home. We're hoping to bring home most of the larger things, like the fridge and tv and microwave, so that when she comes home on Thursday, after finals, she'll be able to load up the remaining in her car, saving us another trip down.
It's only a 1 1/2 hour drive down, so if we do have to go down again on Thursday, at least husband won't have to take the day off.
What's up with this weather, though?? Less than a week ago, it was snowing. Yesterday, the high temp here on Wagner's knob was 90. Today it's supposed to get just as hot. I know I shouldn't be complaining about gorgeous weather, but SHEESH, we have a lot of work to do today and the heat will be exhausting.
This year, Rach's dorm room is a looooong distance from the parking lot so it's a lot of walking to get there. At least there's an elevator. I'm hoping she'll have a few friends there that will be willing to help.
Rachel is coming home on Thursday!
She's had a tough year at school, not academically but with a pretty rugged schedule. She's on the volleyball team and even though the spring semester is off season, she still has practices everyday with trainings, workouts, lifting... and it requires getting up for 6am every morning to do it. She's one tough cookie and she still manages to get a 4.0 gpa too. I'm so impressed with her and pretty proud too. It'll be so good to have her home again.
I finished up the Strawberry Candle Mat last night. Hope to get it Ebay listed tonight. We'll see how exhausted I am by the time we get home. :)
I've an order that came in last night for a candle mat so that gives me yet another excuse to put off the rooster penny rug that I should be working on.
Before I close and get on with my heat-filled day ... let me just say....
Oh, that was such a terrific game yesterday!

Yep, it's going to be a hot one! Rachel is one wonderful girl to do all she does and keep up a 4.0 average!

How exciting to have your daughter home again! We can't wait for them to grow up and go away but when they do we're anxious to have them back...LOL

Love your candle mats! Do you have tutorials?? Would love to try one.

Stay cool!
