And now we interrupt your regularly scheduled program...

Hi all, just a quick check in:

I haven't been feeling well off and on this last week -- I think I have a sinus infection? Anyway, I've watched "That Darn Cat" three times with various family members and I've felt too crappy to leave the room... I do like that movie, and I LOVE Hayley Mills, but seriously? Maybe it's because the FBI detective's name is Zeke...

I have been invited to do a quilt swap. I am MORE excited about this than I can say! And I really need to get started YESTERDAY. We have a blog to document our progress! Thanks, Dedra and Kate, for letting a beginner/wanna-be dabble in your expertise. :)

The kids are back in school and for some reason I am SO busy. Homework, dinner, baths, keeping Beck happy while everyone else is away (i.e. keeping Beck from destroying the house while everyone else is away.) I have not been reading many blogs lately. I love you all, it's not you, it's me you know. I'm still here, just not blogging much.

The last week or so, I spent my "free" time reading "Unbroken" by Laura Hillenbrand. This book is unforgettable. It is quite graphic and very disturbing in parts, but I think it is well worth your time. This man is a fighter. I loved how it all turned out in spite of the circumstances he was placed in. Sometimes we can't choose what happens to us... but we CAN rise above it and survive. Thanks to brave people who serve in our military, hopefully we'll never have to experience any of the horrors that he and so many others faced during WWII. I love to read books that make me want to be a better person, that change how I think, that remind me why we are here. I would LOVE to meet Louis Zamperini. WOW.

I'll check in here and there. Other than that, I'll be cleaning my house, reading a good book, working on my quilt blocks, and doing homework and watching silly old movies with my kids...


  1. I absolutely adore That Darn Cat. One of my all time favorites. And fun on the quilt exchange thingy! Someday I'll be up for something like that. i really like to quilt but I'm kind of a basic person when it comes to that. Hope you are feeling better! - Lora

  2. Glad you are feeling better. I haven't seen that movie in a while. I guess I'll have to watch it again.

  3. I know, even though my girls are in school now I feel so very busy! I'm exhausted. But maybe it's the being pregnant part. Haha. How exciting about the quilting and glad you're finding somethings to do for you!

  4. I can't tell you how many people have been recommending Unbroken to me in just this past week. I have it in my possession, but it's our book club read in February, so I've been I wonder if I should just crack it open anyway!
