The Cowboy Boots (Anyone who has ever dressed a child will love this one!)
Did you hear about the Texas teacher who was helping one of her kindergarten students put on his cowboy boots?
He asked for help and she could see why..
Even with her pulling and him pushing, the little boots still didn't want to go on. By the time they got the second boot on, she had worked up a sweat.
She almost cried when the little boy said, 'Teacher, they're on the wrong feet.' She looked, and sure enough, they were. It wasn't any easier pulling the boots off than it was putting them on. She managed to keep her cool as together they worked to get the boots back on, this time on the right feet...
He then announced, 'These aren't my boots.'
She bit her tongue rather than get right in his face and scream, 'Why didn't you say so?' like she wanted to. Once again, she struggled to help him pull the ill-fitting boots off his little feet. No sooner had they gotten the boots off when he said, 'They're my brother's boots. My mom made me wear 'em.'
Now she didn't know if she should laugh or cry. But, she mustered up what grace and courage she had left to wrestle the boots on his feet again.
Helping him into his coat, she asked, 'Now, where are your mittens?'
He said, 'I stuffed 'em in the toes of my boots.'

Today was another gray, rainy, cold, icky day. Went to the dentist and had my teeth cleaned this morning, DH got his braces off (sigh, I have another year). Came home and ate my low residue, bland, little lunch. Decided to load the twin quilt on the frame and get started. So I did. Changed the thread, sewed a sample, it looked good, so I got started quilting. Nice big loopy curves and curly ques. Power went off, on, off, on, off, and on again. Finished the first pass (about 1/6 of the quilt), advanced the quilt in the frame, and there it was. A nice tight bobbin thread and loopy top thread on the back. Well, poop. OK, big sigh, take a break, fix dinner, clean up. Start frog stitching. I got about half of it out when Biggest Loser came on, so stopped for the evening. Gotta work tomorrow, so won't have any time to work on it. Thursday I'll finish the frog stitching, work on the tension, and start over.
On a happier note, the diverticulitis is much better!

Last night I got my strength training in, back still tender, but got it in. Sat on the couch waiting for DH to get home from work when it hit. My diverticulitis is flared up again. So now it is back on antibiotics and the low residue diet, which is not good for weight loss. No whole grain, no fiber. I'll be hungry for a while now. Also, no core work for a week or so. Sigh. Oh how I hate Flagyl!
