Where did the time go?!

It's been 2 weeks since my last post! Wow! October is half over! So, what have I been up to? Not much on the craft front, but I've been really busy in other aspects of my life.

At work, we lost a coworker due to budget cuts at the end of September. Yesterday, my boss just announced he's retiring at the end of this year. In two weeks, I have my annual in-service to attend out of town. I feel like I've done nothing but play catch up all month long!

At home, I've been cleaning and I don't seem to be making any dents anywhere! Softball has ended and we've already had one basketball scrimmage.

As for crafty stuff, I've done a bit of sewing on my hexagons. I have one hexie flower made for my swap partner. I'll make the other one this weekend and it get mailed next week. I've slowly been working on my mystery quilt (I'll post about that tomorrow).

I did join a local class on "How to Start Your Own Business". So every Tuesday & Thursday nights I can be found there until November 1st. For our last class we have to present a business plan to three judges. We have been told that one judge is a local banker and if he/she is impressed enough just might offer financing for the winner of the best plan. The other two judges are also local business men/women. The person with the best business plan will win $500 CASH! You cannot save this money, and you cannot pay bills with it, but you can invest in the stock market, apply it towards your new business, buy a new wardrobe, anything that goes toward your self improvement. I'm very excited and am really enjoying this class!

Now last but certainly not least. My middle daughter turned 16 yesterday! Here she is standing beside her birthday present...
She was so excited! Then last night we surprised her again with a special cake that my oldest daughter and I made...
 We loved making this cake and it was really neat to look at, but not so appetizing to eat. There were way too many M&Ms per bite! So if I made it again, I would do something else other than M&Ms for the top.

And that kinds sums up my life for the last two weeks. What have you been up too?
