My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

whooooaaaaa!! GOALS!

You might remember.....long, long, ago...back in the day, as it were.....

I put up weekly goals.

When the surprise challenge quilt came along that was my only goal so it seemed stooopid to keep stating it over and over each week.

However, this moring I turned my quilt over to USPS accepting their promise that it will land safely at my friend's house either Wednesday or Thursday. And I will get confirmation of said delivery. Even though I'm pretty sure my friend's gonna let me know when she gets it.... The lady asked if I wanted it insured....but honestly, it cost me about $35 to make and yet is worth more than $100 million to me. So how could I pick a number to insure it for??

So, now I'm back to regular goals.

Does anyone remember the Mommie Quilt I'm making?? The one where I've been trying to embroider my kids' newborn footprints to go with extra blocks from their baby quilts and the bumper pad and the crib skirt/curtains all thrown together into some big memory quilt?? Anyone remember that? Well, last night I FINALLY finished embroidering all those little (ahem big) newborn feet!! Which leads me to this week's goals.

1) assemble Mommie Quilt
2) go to the gym
3) finish A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court
4) Make it through the next to last week of work before VACATION!
5) Finish filling out the self-eval form for my annual review at work (ack.)

There they are folks. We'll see how I do next Monday.
I must say that although it took me longer than the 6 week challenge, it feels REALLY REALLY GOOD getting that quilt done and shipped. Nice to know that I can make a quilt in a couple months should I ever want to again. (that's quite unlikely!)

So, what are your goals for this week?

I had lots of goals to meet today. Once I hit about noon, all bets were off, I took a nap instead. I'm still getting over my vacation lag...have to rest from my time off.

Going anywhere on vacation?

How's Subvet?

You wouldn't want to see my list. Really!

For today (since we've had forty days and forty nights of rain)and there is a bright yellow thing shining in the sky, I'll be mowing again.

My lawn tractor was in the shop for over two weeks. The lawn looked like a wheat field. The day the mower returned home I had to cut it wet. Took me three hours. No complaints. I love riding around on my tractor.
