I still have one little detail to finish up before I send it off, but I've already started on another quilt. I feel like it's practically a requirement to start a second quilt before finishing the one you're working on. But this next one is going to be the first time that I actually attempt to piece a quilt, and true to form, I'm going big or going home, with a postage stamp/scrap quilt. Those are really my favorite, and I just can't imagine trying anything else next. So, here's to imperfect quilt number 3!
-So, Lizzy a couple of weeks before Lizzy's birthday, we started talking about her party. I told her that since her birthday is in the winter and our family is so big and house is so small, we would probably just have a family party this year. Her response? "I'm okay with that. I've already adopted my whole class plus all of my other friends, so they can all come too." Hmmm, good effort kiddo. Anyway, sweet girl wanted to go TO Dairy Queen and eat a cake there. So, we did.
-The Seahawks are going to the SUPERBOWL!!!! Woo-hoo! My two favorite teams are the Seahawks and the Broncos, so I'll be happy no matter what. Justin is a pretty die-hard Seahawks fan (he grew up in WA near Seattle), so I think that he's pretty gung-ho for the Seahawks to win.
That said, I'm really OVER the whole pretend Richard Sherman drama. Was he a little mouthy? Yep. Could he have handled himself better? Yep. But let's not forget that this was a super emotionally charged game against two rival teams, and there's a whole lot of bad blood there. Frankly, I think anyone who has ever played competitive sports knows that it can get heated, and I just can't get fired up about that, especially when there are countless other NFL players who are arrested frequently for drug charges, DUIIs, rape charges, etc. Rape charges? No biggie. But shouting? UNACCEPTABLE.
-I am STILL recovering from being sick. I've been sick for about 21 days now, and though I feel better, I still don't feel great and still haven't gone back to exercising yet. My body just isn't ready yet. I'm a firm believer that there's a time and a place for pushing through the sickies, but this just isn't it. I'm worried that if I went back to T25 now, I'd end up in the hospital. Which means I'm a little ornery from the lack of good endorphins ;)
