Random Notions – I hate when this happens...

I can’t believe I missed another day of blogging!  I have a really good excuse – yesterday I woke up with an extremely swollen and sore ear!  Then as I was trying to walk downstairs – really stumbling this time in my traffic cone pants since I was having trouble standing upright – I hear Alexis coughing and sneezing.  We are both sick – she is actually so sick she stayed home from work today, which happens rarely.  She is having the fever, sinus and congestion issues, and in addition to my ear ache, I am having stomach bug problems.  I have been in and out of the bathroom continuously since yesterday morning!  On top of all this, it seems Harry is also getting something – he has been very snotty and whiney the last two days.

Little has been done.  I did manage to get all my pattern pieces ready for cutting between my bouts in the bathroom.  And Layla got her first taste of cutting out blocks and sewing-

I wasn’t about to let a 6 year old use a rotary cutter, so I had her tracing a small square ruler onto fabric, and then cutting it out.  Once she had 9 squares, she sewed them together and got this-

Pretty darn good – I think it looks better than the first block I put together at age 34!

So since I am feeling a bit better and can sit upright for more than 20 minutes at a time now, I am going to try to get my fabric cut tonight.  I also have another 1,100 word paper to write for my class – on poetry, not my strongest subject – that is due tonight.  I have 7 hours – I can do it all!  J

(In the time it took me to write this, which wasn't very long, I was in the bathroom 4 times.  Will this not end?)
