On the agenda today-
Take Emily to the doctor and have them check for strep. Take me to the doctor and have me checked for strep.
Take the recycling in.
Sweep the house.
Wash my bottom sheet again because Pixel had an accident on the sheet after I put it back on last night (I washed them yesterday).
Call back supervisor at my insurance company to complain about their handling of Eliz’s case. Apparently she doesn’t seem to understand the ‘I work until 4’ part of my message.
I also might stop and get an oil change and clean the bathroom today- it depends on how much time I have and how I feel after we get done at the doctor’s. Dinner will likely be pizza and ice cream because I don’t feel much like making anything else.
In quilting news, I have finished the star on Don’t Go Out A-Lone Star and am starting on the spiderwebs. Emily had a great idea for a way to sign it in the quilting design. She mentioned Charlotte’s Web and that I could sign it in one of the lower squares in the spiderweb which I think is a fabulous idea! She’s so smart.
In bookbinding news, I got tired of waiting for Brazen Device on etsy to message me back or relist the book press I was interested in. He said it would be up by the end of the weekend two weeks ago and I still haven’t heard back. So alrighty then- obviously my money is not wanted there. Instead I bought this one from Phyllisann:
It’s not as pretty but I am sure it will work at least as well (maybe better) and I know that she will send it to me- I’d be dubious about ordering from Brazen Device anyway since he’s been so slow to answer messages. I’d be worried he wouldn’t ship it for weeks and weeks. Plus this one is less expensive and has free shipping- saving me about $100. Phyllisann doesn’t have a lot of feedback on etsy but she lists the same things on ebay where she has over 2000 feedback- 98% positive.
Also? I finished all the signatures except the title page and contents so I’ll start sewing as soon as I read it through and make sure there are no glaring errors and I’ll need a press pretty soon.
80s called last night and was badgering me to say that he’s smarter than I am (oh please, you seriously think that?) and kept after me (calling and calling even though I was letting it go to the answering machine) until I was thoroughly put out with him. I was sick last night too and let him know it- my mistake. I wonder how long, if I never pick up the phone when it is him, it will take for him to get the message I’m not speaking to him and stop calling?
The funny thing about that is that I don’t actually think I am the smartest person- I can think of six people I think are smarter than I am off the top of my head (that I know- I’m not counting people like Steven Hawking) and not one of them has ever called me stupid. He just isn’t one of them.
One of the best things about being a grown up? You can have ice cream for breakfast if you want to!
