Sleep.. My Pillow is calling me

Goodness .. So much going on so little time to catch up. First things first a couple of my bloging friends are celebrating their 200th posts this week so Jill.. Moneik.. Happy 2ooth post.

If you get the chance you should go and check out Jill's blog. Jill is currently working on and completing alot of fantastic projects as well as organizing the Second Annual St. Jude Children's Research Hospital Quilt Retreat she has done some really amazing things. Jill is in the process of gathering donations for the retreat so stop by her blog and look at all the goodies. Also I am hearing that there are still openings at the retreat so if your in the area and want to meet some really great people Jen (another blogger) and Jill will be there.

Moneik.. Moneik.. Moneik. She is truly a girl after my own heart. Ever since I can remember my mom and I have talked about how we were going to make my wedding home made. We thought about mom designing a wedding dress (mom does beautiful lace crochet) but decided that that would be too heavy and decided that she would crochet little flowers or motifs to attach to it.. NOW well I'll be lucky if I even where a dress.. I'm seeing boots and jeans and a big BBQ. Anyway got browse through Moneiks blog to see her amazing projects and hear all about the goodies that she is sewing for her wedding.

On to my day. I ran a bunch of errands finally straightened out the pay situation with work, was going to try to sit down to sew but walking through my apartment realised that there were some things that I could work on to pack and get things ready to go. I still feel like I have a never ending battle here. I know I have been talking about packing, packing, and more packing and I'm sure that your thinking .. isn't she done yet? No and here is why.. I don't think that I ever re-organized and unpacked from the last move (an emergency move due to the Landlord changing their mind about my kitties and I wasn't going to give them up) Being a quick move alot of things just got stuffed in boxes and brought here. I have been TRYING to spring clean as well as packing to hopefully to organize things and make the unpacking easier. Then I got stuck playing video games with my brother for a little while (I'll tell you about that later... yes I tend to be a computer nerd when I figure things out)

Tomorrow morning i will be up early to drive to mom and dad's the kitties were going to go as well but I have decided that I will wait until next thursday to take them. If I can afford the tranquilizer I will wait long enough to get it.. Louise gets sick and it makes me sick to see her hurting.

So I'm sorry about the LONG BORING no picture post but when i figure out where in this mess I put my cord to connect my camera card reader to my computer I will get some up here.. I have lots in fact may camera is full and needs to be downloaded before I can take more. I think I took pictures of every quilt top that I have (without borders) before I packed them.. Lots of pictures of my kitties.. Tell you what I will take my camera to moms and download it there if i remember and put them on CD.

It may be a couple of days before I can write again so everyone have a great week and I will update you when I can.
