Retreat Mode

I'm moving into Retreat Mode!  I got a lot done this past weekend but I've still got a lot to do.  But that's okay... that's what Retreats are all about!  Cutting paper for tables tonight!  That's a chore, but so much better to get it done before we get to the hotel.  We've learned that over the years!   In fact, it does seem that things get easier every year.  I'm sure that's because we get more efficient.  Perhaps, it'll get so organized I just might get some stuff done at the retreat!  We shall see!!!

There's No Place Like Home!!!

This past Wednesday afternoon, I was feeling so overwhelmed with all the details of the upcoming retreat and what all I needed to do, that I decided to take off Thursday and Friday!  Boy, am I glad I did!  I got a LOT done.  Nothing you can really see, but I feel so much better!  Now, I just need to re-group and figure out what else needs to be done!  It's really nice that so much is done so early... I have over 3 weeks left!  It will be so nice rolling into those last 2 weeks just about done!

Where Does Time Go?

It seems the closer I get to the Retreat, the faster time goes.  There is so much to do and I have to plan each night what I need to get done.  Well it seems planning just makes time go by SO fast!  We are exactly 1 month out!  Which is the opening of "RETREAT MODE"!  I get into full blown mode that last week.  Fortunately, I have such great friends who are so willing to help.  Not sure what I'd do without my friends.  They are the BEST!!!

Eureka Springs

We got here Friday night about 10:00.  Didn't take anytime to get set up, but we were all tired, so beds were made quickly and we were all in bed in no time.

I slept like a baby!  And was up early, as usual, around 5:30.  I hit the coffee button and coffee was made by the time I got my bed all made up and my computer hooked up.  AND, I didn't wake anyone!  No internet, but it was okay.  I really enjoyed just working on the computer some and having my coffee.  It was very peaceful and quiet. 

In a while, the rest of the house (motor home) woke up and we just took our time with breakfast and getting ready.  It was going to be a hot day, so we decided to do our site seeing that day and go shopping on Sunday, when it was going to be in the 70's!  It was a great day and we got back to fix a great dinner, followed by an ice cream run and then back for a movie.

Then today, we got up to a beautiful 72 degrees.  Jim Bob fixed an awesome breakfast, we sat outside and enjoyed coffee and then headed to the showers.  Once we were all cleaned up and ready to go, we headed downtown for a day of shopping.  I found my Keen shoes in Cricut green and slides!  I've been looking for them forever!  SO excited about that.

Then, we came back here for a light lunch, another movie and finally getting on the internet!  Catching up on Facebook and just enjoying the day.  Getting ready for some dinner later on, another ice cream run and another movie "Lincoln Lawyer".

Life is good in the motor home!

We will be heading home in the morning after getting up and heading to Branson for breakfast at Cracker Barrel. 

It's been a great weekend with some much needed R and R! 

I'm actually about ready to get back to the "real world"!
