After much thought, I'm going to reconstruct my life style. I did make a new years resolution to do so and it's only taken me 3 months to really start it.
I'm not being to hard on myself, I kind of figure that life always needs readjusting and work. But there are steps that I need to take for myself.
One, I need to spend more time on my body. I'm not getting any younger and I need to stop making excuses. After spending several hours in the car taking Hubby back and forth to the airport, my hips have been killing me! Well not literally, but I've been mighty uncomfortable.
So it's time to grab the bull by the horns and do something for me and my health.
Two, I've learned that all the years I had lists and schedules for the kids, those lists weren't really for them, they were for my benefit.
Since the children aren't home anymore those lists started to fall by the way side. Well my house is showing it! I thought I could be more of a free spirit and spontaneous. All that has happened is that I have a pile of laundry, one of those closets that you shove and close quickly and a sink of dishes. I've lost my discipline. I've also discovered that I'm a mess (and the house) without it. So I'm back to lists and schedules, affective immediately! I'm tired of being a flounder fillet, just tired of it.
You know our dogs haven't been as destructive as this sweet kitty. He has torn apart more baskets, toys, tassels and more cups have been knocked over than I've ever known. Every day he knocks something down. You should see my roll of batting! Just saying, he's a punk! I should also warn you about gibberish emails from me. It hasn't happened yet but it's just a matter of time. I find him laying on the keyboard all the time. I'll come back into the room and find a page filled with characters. And laptops are an invitation to be stepped on and even more exciting when they beep back. He's a punk!
Back a month or so back I order some Kaffe for a backing (Thanks Jeanie).

Just one complaint about Hancocks, maybe two. I ordered this when it was on sale. I put it in my cart and walked away. I came back later and placed the order. A month later I couldn't remember if I ordered three yards or three half yards. I stressed till it showed up yesterday. Thank goodness I order three yards which on their site means I ordered 6 units. That confuses me and I'm always second guessing myself.
The second complaint, after placing every order I receive an email a day or two later saying that the fabric is back ordered. That is super annoying! In fact once it didn't come in at all and I ended up ordering the same thing from the Fat Quarter Shoppe. And their shipping was so much faster too! So I'm thinking of cutting Hancocks out of my life. Reconstruction.
Ok, I'm done venting, time to get back to my list!
