I know which I want and which looks better....they are not the same and like the children I work with, I'm frustrated. I may not get what I want but will have to do what is right! Ish!

I sent a note to the ebay seller concerning the fabric I ordered on July 4. I've not even received a reply. When I get home tomorrow I will be sending a lovely, lovely message to both the seller and ebay. Unfortunately, yesterday I finally found the perfect companion fabrics and spent quite a bit on them. At this point I just want the fabric!
Just a little note to check in.....I'm off to Joanns here and all the quilt shops! Big fun!

I decided to post an oldie. I don't know if I've posted it before or not. I made this a few years ago for my niece. It's the only cat she could have at the time. It came out so fun and colorful. I really need to get busy at the sewing machine so I can post some new quilty pictures!

Five Things to Do Before I Die:
1. Be thin -sounds so vain but just for one moment I'd like to be thin and shapely.
2. Make a mark-I want to make a difference in my little world. I would like to think that I've positively impacted someones life.
3. Take a cruise
4. Learn to converse in another language
5. Travel to Israel
Five Things I Can Do:
1. Free Motion quilt
2.Stop 12 2 year olds from crying on the first day of school. Then get them to look forward to coming back the next day.
3.Sit on the floor with my legs outstretched and touch my face to the ground. Not too useful but I'm still as stretchy as when I was a kid! It always amazes younger people how stretchy I am.
4. Teach my totally computer illiterate MIL how to cut and paste, order online, search online retrieve data from her computer...all over the phone with her in a total panic. After each instruction I need to tell her to "hit enter." She thinks I'm a computer genius.....I let her believe it. DH gets so mad because I only understand things that he has explained to me! It's to the point that she bypasses DH, her son, and goes directly to me! She also refers me out to all her relatives...they all call here asking all sorts of questions...my favorite was my mouse isn't working! What do I do?!!!!
5.Lead a sing along/ assembly for 100 adults and children every week. Start by knowing I CANT SING! I just enjoy what I am doing and so it doesn't seem quite so off key. The cool part is that because I enjoy it, I am able to get the adults to smile, clap along and join in. The very best was Donuts with Dad. There had to be 50-60 dads in the audience and I got them to all sing a song they were unfamiliar with. To hear all those male voices joining in to not only have fun but to be a part of their children's lives gave me goosebumps!
Five Things I Cannot Do . . . Yet:
1.Listen well. I talk alot but am working on being a better listener
2.Keep my yard weeded - I start off good at the beginning of the year and then lose interest!
3. Be totally comfortable in the gym.
4. Be organized - scatter brained is a good nickname for me.
5. Lose weight and keep it off!!!!!! Working hard on this one.
Five Things That Make a Man Attractive to me:
2.Able to relate to children, get down to their level and enjoy themselves.
3.Sense of Humor
5. Good looks/nice body doesn't hurt!
Five Celebrity Crushes:
1. When I was a teenager I thought the JFK Jr. fabulous! I had pictures of him all over my bulletin board. I still have those silly pictures. I was devastated when he died.
I really don't have celebrity crushes. I think Rob Lowe has gotten VERY good looking as he's aged. I never thought so when he was younger. I also think the guy from Heros, that used to be in Judging Amy, is good looking. That's how much I care, I don't even know his name!I just
would never go out of my way for a celebrity. They are just regular people doing their job same as I do mine. I've never seen a celebrity go out of their way to meet me, ogle me or care what I did last night!
I've been on this computer forever this morning. I'll tag others later.....

You can tell by the look on my face that I am barely holding on to my "pose."
Back to the fire extinguishers....I got the idea that we should find a good looking gentleman and ask him to pose in a picture with us. This way we could tease DH and show him that we did indeed need fire extinguishers....Well, absolutely noone at the pool hall fit the bill. So we forgot about it and went to IHOP for something to eat. We walked in the building and the manager was standing there. The first words out of his mouth were "Hello beautiful ladies, I've been waiting for you to get here." None of us know this man! We laughed so hard. We explained the story to him about DH and asked if we could take his picture. He was a good sport and thought it was hysterical that we were trying to tease DH. Take notice of the look he is giving to the camera! He was workin' it!
He almost did too good of a job as he was hugging the stuffing out of me!!!!!
I then had the brilliant idea to take a picture with all the male staff. Ha! We'll show DH!!! LOL! Mr. Manager thought it was too funny so he gathered a few of the guys that were standing nearby. I spotted a fire extinguisher so added it to the picture for good measure.
Having had our fun we headed to drop the girls off at their cars. When we got to the parking lot, I spotted three boys sitting on their motorcycles just chatting......You know where this is heading....After once again explaining the story we took pictures with them also. They were so embarrassed but I guess they couldn't refuse helping us out.
I've e-mailed the photos to DH with this message titled Hot Guys and Fire Extinguishers. "We were successful in finding hot guys and fire extinguishers. Attached find the evidence...." I can't wait until DH goes to work tomorrow and gets his e-mails.....
Oh for good measure I sent him one with Mrs. S and I drinking water but pretending it is vodka. I rarely drink and Mrs.S never does. Trust me, I have crazy enough ideas without it....I can't imagine!
All in all a fun evening. They want to do it again. I just don't know..............
