Out in Space

During the day I’m fine!

I can be a pillar of strength, or a pile of salt. Which may be tasty on a vast amount of popcorn. SO at least either way I”m good. 😉

 

Today I was mildly accomplished in the fact that I got a side of my Sister in law’s baby quilt bound and I did up a grocery list for tomorrow, which may or may not need a few additional items. Like ziplock bags. Can’t forget those!

 

I’ve been working nights, which I think i’ve mentioned, which is throwing my life off into this weird wibbldy wobbldy unbalance. I look forward to next week, when I can get back to a semblance of norm. Not that I”m complaining, my job is hard, and complex (also really simple at the same time, which may add to it’s complexity!) and sometimes completely maddening, but I find it fulfilling. I am helping my department succeed in the best way I can. I love it. It has it’s days where I go home and cry, i’ll admit, but everything does.

I’m also going to make headway on my quilt for Child’s Play. I’m a bit nervous about that one. To be honest. Scott’s Yoshi quilt is starting to … come apart. and I’m worried I won’t do a good enough Job. There are corners I cut on Scott’s though. So I just need to be more diligent in this quilt. FOCUSED. Iron every smidgen. Stop making excuses, and do my best!

that’s all anyone can ask for right? I hope so.

I also want to try and potty train little Audrey this weekend. This will be our… fourth go at it? she’s done it … she is just SO stubborn and frustrating. My little mouthy miss. Who asked her uncle this past weekend “Where did all your hair go?” She’s got her Dad’s mouth, that’s for sure. haha.

I would absolutely looooooove to have someone do it for me, you know? I don’t know how to talk to her, how to entice her, and lure her into doing it. We’ve tried toys, treats, all sorts of stuff. she’s just not interested. Very blase. Obviously I can’t force her to be interested, but She can stay dry, and she likes to go off and hide to pee… so she gets it. She just isn’t DOING it.  I am thinking “No more diapers, that’s SO much money we’re tossing on that!” I’d just like to be done with diapers and their boxes, and bags, and the mess of it all!

We’ll see how it goes! I’ll discuss our progress after the weekend has completed

    Yikes!! How is Scott’s quilt coming apart? Make sure when you press your seams you never- ever- press them “open”. Press them to the left or right. If you did press them open that might explain if the seams are splitting. If you didn’t press them open, maybe some of them had less than 1/4 inch seam and its fraying and separating? Get a 1/4 inch foot if you don’t already have one. That’s all the tips I got!! Hope you finish your quilt- I was looking forward to seeing it!

    It’s the fabric, mostly. it’s just not up to the snuff so it’s fraying, and coming apart. The seams stay in tact, the fabric doesn’t. :(

    That’s too bad :( maybe just keep it tucked safely away so you can preserve it as long as possible? Did you get better fabric for the one you’re making now? You can do it and finish it and it will look fantastic!!!
    Good luck!!!

    So… how much would it be worth to you to have someone else potty train Audrey? haha
