WOYWW - June 19th

Hello everyone!  Another Wednesday WOYWW!  And this time I'm again in an hotel room on a business trip.  The good news is nothing bad happened so far on this trip!  The bad news is that I missed my daughter's birthday yesterday and I'm missing my son Gregory's graduation from 6th grade today... :(  So like my boss said, I'm either a bad mom... or a very dedicated employee.... hmmmm... get's you thinking of your priorities right?!?    But you still need the food on the table and the rest... so... guess I'll stick around for awhile more... just hope I don't miss too many of those important events!

So here's what's on my work desk!  I have brought my computer with me this time.  I figured I would be able to blog a bit at night... and also because I was scared that we get stolen and that this time they take my computer!

Hope your Wednesday is better than mine that's supposed to be in meetings all day... and hope that you don't miss any important things in your life!

I’m doing a giveaway to celebrate my 350 followers! If you are a follower You can enter at this post and if you’re not now is a great time to become one…



  1. Hi Vicki, I am sorry that you have missed your daughters birthday and sons graduation it plays on our heartstrings. I know how hard it can be but if the children know how much they are loved they will be fine, and we all know we have to eat and have a place to live and to do that...well we have to work, sigh. :-). Take care of yourself and happy WOYWW.

  2. Well, at least you can hop with us. Thanks for visiting. Happy WOYWW! Nan G #3

  3. Hi Vicky,
    Get your son a nice graduation present! That's what I would do!!! Hope your meetings are productive! :^) Patsy from

  4. Don't take heart to what your boss said we all have to eat and make sure we can have enough to live off of. At least you can still pop in and visit blogland and catch up :) Have a wonderful day hgus Nikki #2

  5. Oh dear, sorry you seem to be missing those important events in your childrens' lives, its always a hard one to call, you have to keep a roof over their heads and food on the table. Hope the meetings aren't too boring and you get some time in the evenings to catch up with normal stuff. Annette #9

  6. It's so difficult juggling the family and a job but as you say, there are bills to pay and food to buy. There will be lots of other special events to share I'm sure. Make sure someone takes lots of piccies and maybe you and the children could scrapbook them and tell you what to write on the journaling. Hugs. Pam#38

  7. Ah, the travails of a working mama... there are no easy solutions, I fear :(
    At least, you can join in and blog a bit :)
    Happy WOYWW and have a great week :)

  8. Hi Vicky,
    I am sorry you had to miss those special days.
    Have a nice day - through all the meetings you are going to.
    For me it is the last school day before summer holidays. A good feeling. :)

    Hugs, Liv

  9. sometime work commitments take us away from where we want to be - but I am sure they'll welcome you home soon! Have a great day.helen 31

  10. Wow you sound like my aunt who travels every week all over the US for her job, but she doesnt have a family, so she doesnt miss out on any special occasions.

  11. OMG, where's all the 'stuff' gone...(Ohoo I'm sounding a bit like Johnny Depp in Privates! where's all the rum gone?) VERy tidy, now, are you feeling okay? Hope you got the right freebie this morning, I'd loaded up the watermaked pic in one of the links by mistake!

  12. So sorry you had to miss those 2 occasions, hope they take lots of photos for you.. It can be hard to be torn in 2 ways but sometimes it can not be helped.
    Hope you enjoy your blog hopping.

  13. Hope work stuff is all going well... Tuff being a working mum I know I was and doing long hours

  14. Ah Vicky, you'll be so full of ideas and inspiration by the time you get home to your own desk that you'll spend hours being prolific. Yeah, you will! And lookat it this way..to you , they are life events..The children will look back and see the sacrifices their role model had to make and be even more overwhelmed by your dedication to being their Mom. Also, remember, they're a big deal to them AT THE TIME, literally, and then it's over. They're a big deal to you all the time, because guilt is part of the package!

  15. Sorry you have had to travel so much and have missed some important events. However, we do what we have to do in order to keep our lifestyle going.

  16. Hi Vicky
    so sorry to hear that you are away and missing out on the childrens things. I don't think much of your boss stating you must be a bad mum.
    I hope the meetings go as fast as possible so you can get home
    Have a great WOYWW and enjoy the rest of your week

  17. Hi Vicky - so true I hope they understand you would rather be with them but cant - Happy WOYWW... Mxx #110

  18. I am sure your children will understand and I am certain you will make alternative plans to celebrate later!Certanly a tidy desk! Fill your mind with lots of inspiration whilst away and then enjoy the inking process on your return!

  19. Hi Vickiy, Thanks for the earlier visit to Betsy. It' hard to be a working Mom, and throwing in travel makes it even harder. Julia's right, when grown they will have a deeper understanding of what YOU had to sacrafice, so they could have a better life.
    Hope you make it home quickly for those "I missed you" hugs and kisses.

  20. Hi Vicky! Me too in a hotel room but our trip is pleasure rather than business. What a shame for you to miss those family events. 350 followers - wow! Happy Wednesday. :o)

  21. I guess that's why I don't have children (grin). If I miss Bleubeard's birthday he'll never know. Sorry to hear about your woes, though. Hope you day is better now. Have a super WOYWW from #17

  22. Sorry to hear you missed your daughter's birthday and son's graduation but you are sure not a bad mother for wanting to put food on the table and buying nice things for them. I had to make those decisions too (many years ago!) and mine seem to have survived unscathed! Hope your meetings went well and you get back to your family soon xx
