September 2010

Wow, what a Saturday!

I got up this morning, got ready & headed out the door to be at work by 8am. I know, I know, working on a Saturday. It was not my idea of fun and certainly not what I like to do with my weekends. In fact, for the past couple of months, I have been adamant about not working weekends but I figured since I was going to be over on that side of town any way I might as well put a couple of hours in.

So there I was. Working. I had to leave by 1:30pm as I had to get to a birthday luncheon for a friend of mine. When I left the office I was a little disappointed in the fact that I was only able to get through 4 files. Oh well, it is 4 more files than what would have been done had I not showed up, right? Right.

Anywho, I made it to the luncheon and had a FUN time!I met the birthday girl and 5 of my girlfriends over at Macayo's (a mexican food joint here in AZ). There was no drinking involved but you would never have known that with all the cackling & laughing that was going on. My goodness, what a crazy bunch of women! I feel so fortunate to have the friends that I do!

After a few hours with my girlies I headed home. I was really hoping that I would walk into a clean house or at least a semi-clean house since my hubby had spent the day at home but NOOOOOOOOOO, that thought was too good to be true. Where was he? Sitting on the couch, watching tv. I was instantly pissed. I couldn't help it. The angry feelings completely washed over me and I just brewed in them. I didn't say anything to him. I just started cleaning the house.

Am I the only woman that ever feels like that? That I expect my man to help out? That I expect him to think of me and think of ways he can help me out? It's not like I haven't told him before that I need help, that I can't do everything by myself. I certainly don't like working the crazy hours I do and still have to clean, do laundry & do all the shopping on top of that. Don't get me wrong, I appreciate that he works a full time job and helps with keeping the back yard in order (we have 3 dogs... that's a lot of crap if you know what I mean) but still? Am I expecting too much? Maybe I am. Maybe I am just an ungrateful wench. I don't know. I just know that I was feeling a little disgruntled when I got home and had to clean the house...BY MYSELF...again...

I really didn't mean to jump on my blog and start bitching, but I have to admit, I do feel better. Sometimes it just helps to air things. No, I am not looking for sympathy or for any of you to agree or disagree with me. I just wanted to get some stuff off my chest so that I could move on.

I am looking forward to a better day tomorrow. Not that my whole day was a complete waste, it wasn't. I mean, hey, it's not everyday that I get to spend a few hours with wonderful people laughing & talking. I love that.

If you made it this far... thanks for listening. I appreciate it!!

I think that's it for today. Thanks again!

Peace out my Peeps!

So for the past two days Robert & have been slugs with a capital S. It has been wonderful!! It allowed me to get the binding done on the quilt and get some much needed rest.

Today, I have to get the house cleaned, do laundry & make a couple of cards. Should be a good/productive day for me.

I hope you all have all have a wonderful Labor Day Holiday today!

Where ya been?

Hiding. Working. Sewing. Reading. Cleaning house. Laundry. Errands. You in general.

I did finish a project though...something I am sooooo proud of! Check it out...


As you may remember from this POST, I did all the cutting and the sewing and completed the front panel. I had my quilt instructor do the quilting is a couple of detail shots of what she did...


Isn't that pumpkin colored thread perfect??



The back REALLY shows the quilt pattern...


Gorgeous, huh? I think the pattern goes perfect with my fabric/theme, don't you??

And a finished quilt wouldn't be complete without someone to test drive it, right? LOL


I finished hand sewing the binding on yesterday. Oh my goodness, my hands are ACHING!! I don't think I will EVER do that all in one day again. LOL I do know that I will DEFINITELY be making more quilts though. What a sense of accomplishment when it is all said and done. It brings a smile to my face just looking at it. 

Anywho, hope you enjoyed seeing my finished project. Thanks for stopping by!


Well...this is just unfortunate. I FINALLY have something to post on my blog and Typepad is being a PITA by not letting me upload my photos. URGH!!!

Hope to be back later with a post for you. Hope you all have a happy Sunday! :)
