I am still here, too…

What is going on?  I, like Diane, have been in a major funk the last few days, too.  And I really don’t know why, other than that I am sick and tired of my day job.  It is sucking the life out of me.  Then I feel bad for feeling that way, because I try to tell myself I shouldn’t be whining and complaining.  I mean, I HAVE a job, it pays quite a bit better than minimum wage, I am ABLE to go to work, I have so many blessings, yada, yada, yada…not to mention the wonderful family I am blessed with.  A husband that couldn’t be a better mate for me, a son that I would not trade for any other boy on the planet…so WHY am I feeling so pissy?!  I have been so tired, too.  Oh well, enough of that…

Thank you all for the comments on my last post.  I so enjoy your visits to my little space here on the web.  I am tickled that you are noticing and checking on my block progress.  I really MUST finish this quilt!  This seems to be helping me stay at it.  I did two blocks today, putting me five ahead of my one a day scheduled goal.  I am starting to feel like I am going to finish this.  I realized that it has been almost TEN years in the making.  Oh my!  I will quilt it with either a panto, or the Quilt EZ contemporary BF’s.  I also want to say thanks to those who gave me pricing suggestions on the batting, and about my health.  Oh, and thank you for the nice comments on my furniture!  I have to tell you, that chair is fabulous for sitting in and doing handwork.  I have been sitting there, watching TV, and stitching on binding.  It’s just perfect for that.

Other progress to report for the week, is that I have added the 2nd round of logs, light and dark, to the 32 blocks for my cousin’s quilt.  Coming along nicely there.  Also, I am almost finished stitching the binding on my Mom’s Cornerstone’s quilt.  I did take it to Pampa with me when we went last week, and she LOVES it!  I knew she would, but it was so fun to see her see it.  I hope to have the binding done, a label made and attached, and give it a wash so that I can give it to her no later than Sept. 5th, when I will be passing through on my way to Amarillo for a doctor’s appt. 

School started here Monday, and DS was able to drive himself there and back for the first time.  He said he really likes his teachers that he got this year, so far.  Well, I am going to go take a hot bath, and get ready to settle in bed to watch Crazy, Sexy Cancer on the Discovery channel tonight.  I will work on Mom’s binding while watching. 

Thanks for stopping by…hope I wasn’t too much of a downer!
