Semester End, Quilt Slacking, Work Crazed

The semester is finally over.  Well, I do still have to submit my final project in web development and finish my reflection paper.  But after that I’ll have about a month until summer semester starts and I take English.  Blah.  Not looking forward to that.  Writing papers make me want to puke a little.  And if I have to do any group assignments with the kinds of partners Bud and Ang had in their classes, I may have to punch some people in their faces.  I’ll have to keep you all posted.

I should take that month and try to do a little more running and finish up some quilt projects that I’ve neglected.

My poor, neglected sewing table.

My mom keeps telling me she will do anything to help me, but I feel like a slave driver if I give her something of mine to do.  I gave her a bag of fabric squares I had cut, but I still need to cut more.  This is for a double bed size quilt that I have put off working on for about a year.  I’m such a slacker.  I was really into the whole quilting thing at first.  Two years ago for Christmas I made a lap size quilt for the dietary employees.  There were 16 total and I got them done in about 2 months.  I was up til 2:00 am the night before our staff Christmas party finishing the last ones.  But, I must admit I have fallen a little out of love with it.  I would never tell my mom that, though.  It would disappoint her so much.

There’s fixins for at least 5 or 6 projects in these cubbies.

Quilting is what my mom and I do and my dad and I have the running thing.  So I have to hang onto whatever I have left.  Maybe if I just get my ass off the couch and work on it, I may get interested in it again.  But my ass doesn’t really want to do much when I get home from work on most days.

Work.  Work has been extra shitty lately.  Not saying anybody else’s job isn’t just as (or even more) shitty.  But I’m in a venting mood, so here we go.  There’s been lots of changes going on with our company and my boss, who is already a little imbalanced, is being pushed to the brink of insanity.  Which is making the rest of us crazy.  Some of us are crazy-crazy, I’m just angry-crazy.  I feel the punchies coming on and I have to get up and leave their office for a while.  My coworker and my boss share an office.  I have an office by myself above the kitchen, thank goodness.  So I just escape up there and cuss for a while, maybe purchase a refreshing Coke and some chocolate to relax me.  Then I eventually have to head back down for more.

  1. I hear ya, sista. One of my fellow therapists had to figuratively “talk me off the ledge” from quitting just this evening. Perhaps I need some chocolate but a 4 week vacation might also help.

    • i don’t want to go back to work after a 1 week vacation. if i was able to get 4 weeks off, i honestly don’t think i would go back. i would have bud call in and tell them i died or something, hope your job gets better. 🙂

  2. Yep I feel the same way about my jewelry making stuff. You will probably feel more into it if you just do it, but I sit on my bootie instead too!
