Good days and bad....

Wednesday, March 20, 2019

I think blogging is a way for me to talk to myself and see where I am in meeting my goals.

I often have a very hard time on Mondays! I think most people don't like Mondays but I seem to be hit hard with them. But this past Monday wasn't a bad day! I was coming off a weekend where I felt I got a lot of quilting done and felt good about that. I had also scheduled a nap on both Saturday and Sunday. And I took said naps because it was on the schedule! We also menu planned for the week, so I know I will be eating what I should.

But then Tuesday came and I had my Monday panic attack on Tuesday this week. I was out of sorts and just wasn't in a good place. I did walk both Monday and Tuesday during my conference period so I didn't have to worry about it in the afternoon. Yesterday, decided to take a nap after work. I couldn't warm up and taking the nap was what I needed to do! Then after dinner, I wanted to sew the last 2 borders on my mystery quilt. But when I started to sew the seams, it wasn't coming out right. Doug stepped in and sewed the seams for me. I was grateful. But then he questioned why I had my machine set up to raise the presser foot a small bit every time I stop. "Do you like it doing that?" "YES, otherwise, I would change it." It is my machine and set up for how I like it! Then he complained about how he likes a guided foot. Well for my machine, the guided foot doesn't work well. Get over it. It is just adding more stress.

While he stitched my last 2 borders, I cut the blocks that I sewed on Sunday. So I now have 1/2 of the last 6 rows of my Un-be-weave-able quilt stitched and cut down. I was then able to sew 2 rows together. And make another 1/2 row stitched. Tonight I will cut those down and sew that row together. I have a goal to finish this quilt by the end of the month, including the borders. Here is to that goal.

Today, my goals are:
1) Go to my CSC (chemical Safety coordinators) meeting from 4-5:30.
2) Get to the school early for meeting and walk on their track for 20 minutes.
3) Dinner with Doug (hope the meeting ends early to get home in time for this, as Doug has a meeting at 7 and needs to leave at 6. And my meeting is 30 minutes from home).
4) Trim the 1/2 row I made last night.
5) Stitch row 10 together. (10 seams)
6) Attach row 10 to row 8/9.
7) Make row 11.
8) Trim row 11.
9) If time permits, stitch row 11.
10) Read 10 minutes from current novel, "The Potting Shed Quilt"
11) Track all food.

A NSV is Doug has asked every night if I want ice cream and all but one night I decided I didn't really want any so I didn't have any.

    I never thought of blogging as a way to talk to myself and also to *see* where (and if) I'm meeting my goals. EXCELLENT!! Could journals be 'something' like that too? I've tried journals (I think one or two summers) but I may be able to 'do' this if I can use it as a way to talk to myself.

    When you menu plan, for a week, WHAT do you use, e.g. a List? I'd *love* to know MORE about that if you'd like to share.

    See all the walking you do? I'll guess you're walking a minimum 2-3x's per wk, or more.

    LOL!! You & Doug are *fun* and funny together, even if he doesn't like your sewing technique!! LOL!!

    Please share this "Un-be-weave-able" when you get the chance.

    OH MY WORRRRRRRRD!! Ann Hazelwood books were sooo created for YOU!!

    A definite NSV when naughty husbands ASK us to indulge in naughty foods. LOL!!

    Saying no to any treat is definitely a victory!

    And sounds like you are flying through all of these quilts!
