Almost midnight and #10 to be quilted just got added to the pile. Should’ve been finished way earlier but I got sidetracked several times. That happens to me a lot.
Last night Chad went to a party. Are there parties every Friday and Saturday night when you’re in college? If he can find that much to do in this small town, ok . . let’s not talk about what happens when he moves off and lives in the dorm in a month.
Anyway, Saturday night he was out til 12:30 a.m. I keep my cell phone under my pillow when he’s out and he is supposed to call me when he gets home and has the garage door closed. I figure he should be safe then. Last night, he called and he wanted to talk! I was trying to get off the phone. I was already asleep. Dang it . . if he wants to talk to me, let’s do it when I’m awake. That wasn’t enough though. He came down the hall to get his laundry because he had to be at work at 7 a.m. on Sunday. Vince was just coming to bed and he and Chad stood in the hall, outside the bedroom door, talking! I don’t even remember what they were talking about but I could hear every word. Speck was laying in bed growling. Yes, that’s exactly what I wanted to do too. . growl! I just remember being aggravated because I was trying to sleep. Then Chad got up at 6:15, coughed, sneezed, showered, coughed some more and finally left to go to work. Vince got up. I pretended to be asleep still. My head hurt. I needed more sleep. I did fall back asleep and didn’t wake up again til 9:00 a.m. Then I really felt guilty about sleeping so late. I walked into the kitchen, head still hurting, and Vince said “want to go to breakfast?” Oh, yes . . I’ll be real happy to go out for breakfast. Then he wanted to go look at generators. I don’t mind spending money (we’ll talk about that tomorrow), but I pretty much do my research and I know what I want and I go in and get it and leave. Not Vince. He has to look at and touch everything and ask a zillion questions. Oh, I hate to shop! Thankfully we only went to one store because I was thinking . . everyone else is home quilting but me!
But, what really matters, is that I finished the top I had to finish this week.
Dates for the January, 2009 Quiltathon have been set — January 10 & 11, 2009. Put it on your calendar, ok?
