Long Weekend...

*big huge long gigantic sigh* I am so looking forward to this holiday weekend. After a six day flu hitting me during one of our busiest weeks, there is nothing I am craving more than three consecutive days play and productive work. Ours promises to be busy, and full, and good, and just what we all need to get back on track around the house and back in touch with each other. I'm dreading the much needed bathroom cleaning, but otherwise looking forward to the picture hanging, yard sale prepping {purging...YAAYYY}, space making, boot camp planning, and other related tasks. Most of all, I'm looking very much forward to three uninterrupted days with my husband...which as of late have been few and far between. It will be nice to get back on the same wavelength...even if it is just for a moment in time!

So, before I check out for the busy {yet hopefully a bit relaxing} weekend, there are just a couple of points to touch on. If you are, like, the only person left in blogland who hasn't yet signed up for the Creativity Boot Camp, please head on over and check it out. It's FREE {yeah...I'm totally thinking I was crazy!}, and it's just something fun to do with two weeks of your summer va-cay! Also, it's worth mentioning that you don't need to officially sign up anywhere. You're welcome to let me know you'll be joining in by leaving a little note in the comments, but you're more than welcome to simply follow along. This weekend, I'll be brainstorming how best to facilitate the camp due to its incredible popularity {as my original plans were a bit small...who would have ever guessed?}! Also, I'll be putting all of my ideas and notes into words and formats so that the course is ready to roll next Sunday! I will be having another little update with some additional information about the camp early next week.

Also, I'm still accepting ads over at the Boot Camp blog. As I mentioned before, this would be a great way to promote your small {or not so small} business! I believe formal registration is at about 300 people, not including the countless others who will be silently playing along or joining in later. Plus, there is over a week left before Boot Camp begins and I'm averaging about 25 new "registrants" daily. So, consider this a  relatively inexpensive way to attract some new customers!

I would be remiss not to mention the fact that I have been an absolutely horrid blog friend as of sincere apologies. It has been hotter than blazes around here and I wanted to get far, far away from my hot house and this sticky leather chair every chance I got...oh, well, that was when I wasn't lying on the floor begging for God's mercy and trying to hold down my crackers and ginger ale! So, even though I have good reason for not visiting you as I should have been, I have still missed hearing your "voices" and I hope to get caught up on your this's and that's soon!

And last, but very far from least, I have been working together with a group of amazing women/bloggers/mamas/friends/people I WILL meet in real life one day/etc...on a new project/venture/exciting idea/you get the idea and hopefully {like after months of behind the scenes planning} I'll be sharing that with you next week...fingers crossed... {yeah...I know...I could not have been more vague!}

Have a wonderful and safe holiday weekend, friends!!!
