Do NOT Copy

A Bit Bummed Out

I've been looking SO forward to trying to meet some of my blogging buddies at the Chicago Spring Fling. I had high hopes and really planned on trying to make it. Chicago isn't so very far away. I may have even been able to arrange meeting my cousin who lives in IL while I was down there and even hoped to meet up with my sister if she didn't have to work.

All of those plans just started flying out the window. I'm just now realizing that I don't have the money to drive down there, eat, and stay over night. Son had to go to the doctor again for more problems with breathing and the bills seem to be piling up higher and higher. All of this even though we finally unloaded that unsellable house from MN.

Oh well. I'll just have to continue my visiting via the web with my blogging cyber buds.

Here's hoping my seeds start sprouting soon. We're expecting rain tomorrow as well as several other times this week so I hope to be sharing a ton of veggies with MIL for all of her kindness and generosity. She's got some plans of her own in the works which I think will benefit her as well as at least one other person. I can't say much about it yet, but I hope to be able to share the news soon.

Thank you for stopping by to chat with me. Please leave me a message, I'd love to hear your thoughts!

So sorry you can't make it to the fling, as I year, next year will be better.
Hope your MIL enjoys spreading her benefits to at least one other person. I'll be waiting to hear what that is!

Oh That is to bad you can't go. I know how disapointed you are. But at least you can visit in the cyber world(-: It will almost be like being there!

I know what you mean, Cinj! I look at the blogger flings and wish I could get out there and meet my blogging friend, too. Not this year for us either. Maybe next year?!!

Sometimes things just aren't to be. Here's hoping for better times for you soon.

Sorry you can't go, I'd like to have net you in person! My attendance is tentative as well, cuz' I'm pretty broke myself and never know when my vertigo will flare up. I can't afford to stay overnight either, so I was gonna either drive down for just one of the days, or sleep in the back of my car! ;-)

Thinking of you! I'm sorry you won't be able to make the trip but we are all always here!

I know how you feel Cinj about not being able to attend. Due to family obligations I have to take a pass as well. Oh well, there's always next year right? :)

I know you wanted to go but when money is tight you got to take care of the kids first. You made a smart move.

Cinj said...

Thanks everyone. I'm sure that I'll survive just as I did last year. Family is more important than taking a road trip anyway.

Lisa- I'm hoping to make it down to Wagner, WI sometime. I think you live near there? Maybe we can meet then.
