Murphy's Law

The man cub has been sick and throwing up. He doesn't throw up during the day only at 2 am. Sarge wears ear plugs and snorrs like no other. I think I mentioned this before but I used to call his cell phone and leave him messages of his snoring. He didn't appreciate that very much and it made me cackle with glee (on a side note I am embroidering a towel for him that says "I shave my pits with your razor" He will not laugh at that either but I will crack up!) I finally fell back asleep around 4. I was totally exhausted!

RRRRRIIIINNNNNGGGGGG!!!! In my mind I am instantly angry. I think to myself, someone better be dead for my phone to be ringing.

Me in groggy voice: Hello

Some guy: Is Capt (insert my last name) there?

Me: He's sleeping, after all it is almost 4 am.

The guy: Oh, I'm so sorry Mrs. (insert my last name)

Me: Is it an emergency?

The guy: I need to talk to him

Me: (Shoving phone in Sarge's face) Do you hear that? (Sarge is snoring really loud)

The guy: yes

Me: Do you really want me to wake him up, after all he IS on vacation?

The guy: (in a sheepish voice) he is on vacation?

Me: yes, but I'll wake him up if you want

The guy: Oh God, I didn't know he was on vacation. I am soooo sorry. (almost distraught)

Me: ok

The guy: (very uneasy) good bye

Me: bye

I never did go back to sleep. My body began to protest the quick sleep awake cycle I was putting it through. I think I'm going to start wearing ear plugs too. Here's to hoping tonight is better...

Just say NO

So I hear all these people talking about their New Year's Resolutions. I balk at the idea of making resolutions. If I want to make changes in my life I just do it, no matter what day or month it is. So there.

I participated in a doll quilt swap. This is the little beauty I received in my favorite 30's fabric. I LOVE when I participate in a swap and am thrilled with what I get. Sometimes I get stuff and because they don't know you what you receive is just not your thing. This is no the case with this quilt. Woohoo!!

I finally finished the stupid *&&%$$ quilt I sent out. This quilt haunted me for some reason. It's not that I struggled doing it I struggled getting my self to do. I had no drive. With that being said I love how it came out. I don't think the woman I sent this too has this type of style but I don't know her so.... It was hard to mail it away. I invested blood (literally, damn cutter), sweat (Sarge likes the heater way too much) a tears in this quilt.

I tried my hand at another little crafty encounter. I saw these and instantly wanted them for hair pretties. I love how they came out.

I have been signing up for more swaps to keep myself busy. I signed up for a swap called 100 Facts About Me. That was fun to come up with the 100 things. I'm trying to make a tote bag right now. I'll let you know how it comes out.

Happy New Years!
