So, I finished my one Monthly goal and I don’t like it one bit. O, my intent was to use this to practice my curved borders. However, I got new rulers and got all excited about that and we have some pretty awful ruler work. I thought about tearing it all out, but I just did not feel like it. They are not all bad, but there are a couple that are pretty hideous, not to mention that for whatever reason my measuring skills were totally non-existent. I will use it on my table. Everyone always makes a big mess anyway…..It will blend in with the quilting.
This is the crazy birthday month. All the kids’ birthdays are this month, along with my late mother, and my late husband, Derrick. While I understand what everyone was doing that July before, I just do not understand why, myself included. Fourth of July is really not that exciting. So, the month has been getting gifts and making food and it is not over yet. Still one tomorrow and Friday, Haley has some of her friends over. Teenagers. Great. They will eat all the food, drink all the pop, and be super annoying. Such is life being the parent of a teenager.
Due to all the crazy birthday stuff, I get little or nothing accomplished from a quilting perspective. Add in there that I really miss my Mom and I have spent the month constantly thinking about Derrick and feeling a bit sorry for myself. There have been numerous times that I just wanted to call Mom and talk to her about “things”. Next month will be Dad’s birthday and I was totally a Daddy’s girl. Yeah.
Then there is the fact that, the first dead husbands brother died. Haley wanted to see him before he passed. I took her. I had not seen these people in nearly 10 years. It was stressful, but not nearly as awful as I had managed. Sad that he is gone, I always really liked him. At least he will have some good company.
Gosh, I sound depressing. I don’t feel as bad as it sounds. Sometimes, life just happens. I need to get more sewing/quilting in and chase away the blues.
