This and That

It was a great weekend. I put the finishing touches on 4 quilts and got them off to the quilter. It is so nice to not have to step over mostly finished projects. Well, I suppose thats not completely true there are still 2 more quilts that I will finish this week and oh, maybe 8 more works in progress. Am I the only person who gets sidetracked, and is constantly starting something new? I didn't think so.

So how badly do I want to finish the 2 that I am almost done with.... maybe I could put the borders on this quilt instead.

Well it was a thought. temporary. fleeting. whew that desire is gone again.
I think I will fold it back up until inspiration strikes again.

I am going to complete the top of an original design instead. I just need the finishing touches on some applique work. I will share a picture in a couple days when it is all stitched down. If I am lucky the pattern packets will be done soon too.

Now because I believe in full disclosure, this next part only for the brave at heart.

I'm warning you...... it might be time to read the next blog.

Okay, but don't complain to me that there is Too Much Info now.

After picking up the kids, I finally got home tonight from an already long day of work, and notice there is a smell of poop in the car. Okay, maybe someone tooted... A little later I hear this.

KG: Alyss, you can't tell Mommy.
AJ: You can't stop me.
KG: No you can't. Stop Alyss.
AJ: Kaaaatelyyyyyn. [Comes to find me] Mommy, Katelyn pooped in her underwear.

So, I am mostly upset that she is hiding what she did from me. So I clean her up then make her wash the underpants in the toilet, clean up the floor and the side of the tub. I started the laundry, so why do I keep smelling poop. I make her wash her hands again. Still there. So I spray febreeze. better. Dinner, bath.... yuck it still smells. ARE YOU READY... she thought she could hide the evidence of her accident by throwing the poop in the trash. Eeewwww gross.

Happy Tuesday everyone.

You are right. Way too much information. But I did have to laugh. Thanks for the chuckle!
