What A Week!

This has been one heck of a week. Constantly going somewhere! None of this has helped me with my weight! I've decided I need to get back to eating healthy and get away from the fried foods as well as potatoes. I don't care what people say about potatoes, but I truly believe I gain weight with potatoes. I have stayed away from potatoes for over a year. This week I had potatoes in every way you can think of and I've gained weight! ugh Even when I watch what I'm eating..

Today we went to the casino because Patrick didn't want to work in the yard for 4 days in a row. He couldn't find a movie he wanted to see, and he just couldn't figure out what to do that was "going out." So, we spent a couple hours at the casino. After that we came home to a message from my mother telling me her "half Uncle" was in the hospital and not expected to make it. She wanted to go see him then go out to eat. I told her I wasn't going to go out to eat, but I would go with her. We would have to leave in the next half hour. She said okay, and I started out to their place. I was half way there when she called me on my cell to tell me she changed her mind. So, I got off the freeway and came back home. This is not a good year for my family.

Patrick's mother has been in the hospital for over a week. They are going to put her in a nursing home till she can get her breathing back. She has degenerative heart disease. He's been talking with his family every day since she's been in. We are praying she's going to do fine. But then she's been in a lot of pain over the years for her hip, shoulders, and other areas. She's the one I made the Honey Bee quilt for. I'm thankful it was done in time. I do hope she will be able to go home soon, but they need her to get up and move around. Plus they are working on her meds to keep her under control.

 Last night I was able to work on the Japanese doll block. It's going pretty fast. I did take out the hair and put it back in.


I'm starting to do the hands and the belt. Then the arms will go on and then it's done.

I need to go downstairs this week and really clean up the room. I'm going to take things out and see what I have. I need to mark where I put things. I'm so tired of "misplacing" my stuff. So, I'm thinking - if Patrick doesn't have other ideas - I may get started tomorrow. I need to clean up the spider webs and dust! After about 6 months of rarely going down there, it really needs to be cleaned up. That will be my next project - cleaning - then I can figure out in what order I'm going to finish my UFO's. At least that's what I'm thinking. Lets see if that actually happens! I hate cleaning but at the same time, I hate messes that bug me. That's why sometimes Patrick thinks I'm mad at him, because I clean like you wouldn't believe! I clean everything in sight when he ticks me off! Unfortunately he hasn't ticked me off in couple years, so cleaning has been as good as it has in the past. lol

Happy Quilting!

It's Another Hot Day.....

Today I was up and ready to go after Patrick left. I enjoyed my breakfast and then took a drive. I went to McDonald's first, then went...
