Goodmorning. I find myself trapped in the same cycle of go to bed too late and get up too late and be late late late 🤗😅 but if I didn’t I would go mad. I am not 1 of those people who just does work and chores and climbs into bed! If there is no reading or sewing or whatever I feel like for satisfying downtime than I get pretty out of wack. I am definitely not a robot or a martha stewart. My house is messy- things half done or waiting to be done (and plans to do are always getting pushed back!). That’s just how it is when you are 1 person trying to think for everyone.

I been listing to a lot of classical music trying to stay calm cool and collected 🤗 nah bruh I just listen to it cause I like it haha.

I felt awful yesterday. Woke up under the weather and pushed through work. Just literally counting the seconds until i can go home and do all the other shit 😁

Was loving this playlist for doing yoga😍 My body always feels better after some yoga 💪🧘‍♀️❤

Shit I am late… have to get on the rat race train!!

Back to hexies the last couple nights… would rather do this than go to the office hands down!!!!!

It doesn’t get any easier- so dont let them tell you it does.  Fighting that ol’ clock again.  

Get up • Commute • Work • Commute • Eat • Parent (or just talk to a wall & follow that up with yelling, sighing, evil glares and #ALLTHECUDDLES 

Just using scraps tonight- I will likely add them to the back.  Its bloody time consuming fitzing with all the pieces!

it seems that the harder I try this semester the more stuff happens to stop me. So I actually had my dad offer to take the kids on Sunday- and guess what – Hazel ended up with the
most painful case of pink eye EVER. Oh and Saturday was a write off cause the boy needs shoes (and what a fiasco that turns into lol) and me mate needs a gal for her bridal dinner & show. Monday was trips to the doctors office the next town over and
Multiple trips to the kids school.
I’ve come to the conclusion that as long as I want to do homework my life goes nuts. This morning Chris realized the muffler strap fell off the car. \o/ yay!!!
So I assembled my blocks:

My poor girl was feeling much better today and was really excited to help arrange the blocks!

And the finished quilt top!
I can at least sleep feeling like I accomplished something – maybe not all that insane homework oh wells…

So- as much as I want to work on the quilt top- I chose having tea with a very good friend & doing the dishes (oh my soooo many dishes!)
Handed in assignments today for life safety (sprinklers and fire alarm drawings) and yes I cried a little (a lot yesterday). Nothing is as perfect as I want it – the software isn’t user friendly – the teacher is an idiot because the assignments have idiotic aspects to them -grrrr- but whatever. What’s done is done and only onward and upward from here!
So I took some me time (even though I shouldn’t) an watched Ghost Adventures (while setting up the Business Plan assignment) and I have an interview tomorrow and no idea what to wear. I also don’t remember where I put my portfolio (shoot had it been almost a year already?) and I didn’t get a hair cut…

So I sewed some little squares together to finish my scrap block (and keep the scraps down).
None of t was very straight – AWESOME – cause it’s character!!

All that mattered is it had fabric enough under the square!

Here it is all squared up! Looks good I think. (My half hour to finish this block worked into an hour but that included my 9 year old needing a goodnight tuck in and the bobbin running out.)
My plan is to use up all small scraps as quick as possible into the scrappy postage stamp squares. I suppose in a year you can ask me how it is going 😛
