Tuesday's here, where did Monday go?

Well Monday was a day, it's Tuesday already and my head is still spinning around.

I have a HUGE plastic zippered bag full of cotton, and several grocery store bags full of acrylic all around my bed, plus a duffel bag full of sock yarn too.

I am off to bed now... praying I can sleep tonight, I really need it.
