I'm still alive and well and wondering what I got myself into when taking this job. There are long hours, and the pace is fast, but I've been told that it does slow down eventually.

This morning, while I was still in bed, I made myself a list of things I needed to do - laundry, dishes, putting plastic up on the windows, etc. This job has been expensive for me - the plastic is not up on the windows and we had several storms and below zero weather already. About $25 of my CVS Care Bucks expired, and I have been eating out a bunch, because I haven't had any time to go grocery shopping. If I do this job again next year, I will have a bigger wardrobe to start so I don't have to do laundry as often, and I will go on a big grocery shopping expedition beforehand. I might have to sleep all week before, so I have a reserve of sleep. :)

Anyway, I eventually dragged myself out of bed and got ready for the day. I made the coffee and turned on the computer while I was waiting for it to brew. There was an email from my LQS talking about the SuperBowl sale. I had known about it earlier, but I had forgotten. I quickly called my Mom and the two of us trekked off to the shop. Well it isn't a long trek, since the shop is in the neighborhood. She had never been there. It was crowded, but we got to look at lots of beautiful quilts and touch lots of wonderful fabric. I didn't buy much - the kit I wanted she wanted too so I let her have it, even though I bought the book.

It was really nice to be able to do something fun for a change. Now I guess I have to rush around doing my chores and get ready for the next workweek!

You blog just swallowed my comment. Just know that I was here, said something amazingly insightful and witty and had a good laugh when I finally read your words under "Leave your comment." I didn't even know we could alter that! Clever of you, I must say ;)

Isn't it great to get out even though you didn't plan to go anywhere today. My problem is whenever I don't make plans to go somewhere, something comes up and I have to go somewhere-- today , it was Walmart - that was a big mistake - any plans I had of turning on the sewing machine didn't happen - but I did find some cute green napkins on clearance that will look great with some Mardi Gras embroidery designs stitched on them.

Glad you got a few things on your trip - those looks like great titles!
