To Indy we will go.

Sam accepted the job offer in Indy today. His first day is the 21st of July. Yea Sam. To the real world. I guess the only changes will be that he will have to get up earlier and will have to drive more. We will stay in Muncie until our house sells, so we may be here for awhile.

Tweet Tweet

I have thought about a quilt journal for a long time and I am finally going to do it. Sam is making me a cover on the laser cutter at work and I will go and have it bound somewhere. Well here is the first entry on the book, after I try to remember all the quilts I have made and take a picture of them, of course. I really like the look of applique, but it takes so much time. So this may look like applique, but it is just double sided fusing. I know, what a cheat. Oh well, I hope Jenny likes it. I did try out some new things, so I hope it still works as a good blanket. I didn't bind it because the soft fabric on the back is kind of "sticky". I think maybe it will just stay together. And I have never used the webbing before.

I found this on a friend's blog. I am not sure I like the results.

Cups, cups, cups

Lately Sinclaire has been climbing up to the bathroom sink and getting her own drink. She usually uses little cups as seen in the picture. Sam came home from work on Friday and caught her in the bathroom drinking out of her shoe. Gross. He asked her not to do that anymore and told her that her shoes were dirty. Well, a little while later he walks by again and she is standing at the sink on her rocking horse sneaking a drink out of her dirty shoe. I just hope it was tasty.

I've been beaten!

I love to garage sale, but almost as much, I love to see other people by my junk. Thus, enabling me to go to someone else's garage sale and bring home theirs. Vicious cycle, I know. On my count I have done five garage sales with my family and I am always victorious. I always make the most money. Usually a couple hundred dollars. It is just common knowledge that I will win. Well, Sarah and I had one on Friday and I knew right from the start that I was in trouble. And by the end of the day I had been beaten. She made $83 and I only made $58. At least i know now that my junk is not worth it. I wanted to haul all the rest to the goodwill, but I know in August I will do one more with Sarah at her house during her small town's ghetto garage sale day. I will just mark everything 50 cents and be done with it.

Jelly beans?

A simple peanut butter and jelly sandwich should be pretty easy to make. Peanut butter. Jelly. Two things every mother of two small children should have. But when Sinclaire asked for jelly with her peanut butter I had to tell her I didn't have any. Only because when I told Sam I had to get some strawberries to make freezer jelly he said, "Why, who eats it." I knew I did, but as a result of the comment no freezer jelly was made and now I am jelly less. Well, after I told Sinclaire I didn't have any she thought about it for a bit and then asked for peanut butter and jelly beans. So in a pinch use the bean, it is almost as good for you. And it is multi flavored.

Job Announcment

While I was waiting very patiently for Sinclaire to finish her lunch I heard a familiar ring coming from the phone. It was Sam, he never calls during the day. I was surprised. I picked it up and he asked me if I had checked my e-mail. I had not. Kind of unusual because I have been checking it about every five minutes since he had his interview last month. We he read it to me and the moment I had been waiting for finally arrived. BSA had offered him a job. What a relief. Leaving Muncie is finally in sight as a reality, instead of a dream that has just been barely out of reach. Yea Sam!!!

Happy Birthday Kit Kat

Kit Kat turned one on Sunday. We were at Grandpa and Grandma's house for the celebration. Molly and her children are here for a month and we didn't think we would all fit very well in our house. She was a little hesitant about the cake at first, but go the hang of it and ate quite a bit of pink cherry frosting and cherry chip cake. She loves all the new toys, especially the barn with the animals.

The Beginning

Sam has been after me for a while to start this blog. So here I am. Starting a blog. He will be so proud when he gets home, I did it all by myself. I even got my own e-mail.
