In The Mood To Quilt!!!

Today has been a long day. After getting the boys off to school this morning I did 5 loads of laundry :( I hate laundry. I still have a basket full of socks that I need to mate. After that I stretched out on the couch to read a book and the next thing I knew the boys were coming through the door. I had slept the day away. I didn't mean to fall asleep so there was no dinner ready. I rushed to the phone, called my sister and had her pick up a pizza for me. Luckily her and Richard pulled in the drive-way at the same time. I always have dinner ready when the boys get home from school and just put Richards in the microwave, but today everyone was asking me if I was sick! I was just tired, I guess.

Later in the evening I finished my book. I tried to pick out another one to read but I haven't decided on one as of yet. Richard went on to bed and the boys and I watched a movie, after they did their homework. Now it is 11:30pm and I want to QUILT!!! Can you believe it?? But I guess I will have to wait until morning because my fabric is in the bedroom and Richard is asleep. :( He will get up at midnight, but I'm sure by the time that he leaves I will be ready for bed.

I was noticing yesterday while I was sorting fabric, that I have a TON! I think I will make another scrap quilt. I can't think of the name of the block right off, but it is just a simple block and I have made it before. It goes together rather quickly and I can use up alot of my scraps on it. I will post a block tomorrow when I start it. It will probably take me longer to cut it out than it will to sew the top together.

I guess I am done....Ida Belle is asleep under the computer desk and she has GAS!!! She is killing me.....

Don't dogs stink. When Stanley has gas he can bring tears to your eyes and clear the room.

Some days we just need to sleep whether we realise it or not. Don't feel bad about sleeping most of the day, you obviously needed it.

You must have really needed the sleep so I wouldn't worry about it. When my body has had enough I sleep too. Don't beat yourself up over it. Dogs can have the worst gas. Sometimes they bring tears to your eyes and then look at you like what did you do.

It sounds like you needed a good nap and got one! Hope you have a good sewing day today.

Yea!!! You want to quilt! That is amazing! I'm so happy for you because I know you've been in a funk for a while.

I had to laugh about Ida's gas! Holly will drop, look at you like YOU did it, come, sniff you and then walk out of the room. It's friggin hilarious.

I'm so excited to hear your are wanting to quilt again! Sometimes we all go through spurts where we can't or don't have the desire to. I take a lot of Sunday's just to sleep until I wake up on my own.

You probably needed the rest - both physically and emotionally.

It won't hurt the family to have something other than a home cooked meal...so pizza was fine.

Start back to quilting and let your problems go away.
