March Stocking Swap

I can't believe it is already March 14th!  Where has this month gone?  I had all kinds of plans for this month and for spring break, but wouldn't you know it, Sunday and Monday I spent most of the day in bed, sick to my stomach.  I caught that dreaded stomach bug that had been going around the school in the last couple of weeks.  I thought I had dodged that one.  I am still not completely feeling back to my old self, a little nauseous and head achy, but I must continue on.  I finally marked one thing off my spring break work list today.  I spent most of my morning on my hands and knees, scrubbing and cleaning my front tile area.  Which meant that my dogs had to be kenneled all morning to keep them out of the chemicals and my way.  They were not the happiest of pets, but I gave them a pig bone (pig's ear rolled into a cylinder) and they were quite content for most of the morning.  Once the front entry had dried, I needed to steam it clean to get the last of the chemicals off the floor.  This is because my OCD dog, Taegan, will clean the floor again, with his tongue, and I don't want him getting sick from the bleach.  The tongue cleaning is one of the reasons it is so dirty.  Everything sticks to that saliva - okay, trust me it really needed to be cleaned. 

Okay, next subject - - - Have you started on your pillow cases for this month?  No?  Neither have I.  Like I already said, I can't believe we are almost halfway through this month and halfway through spring break and I don't have one set of pillow cases for the swap.  I may have to put them off until April if I keep going at this snail's pace of a speed.  I did make three baby blankets last week - only because I needed them for some baby showers and I hadn't gotten around to making them and - yea, I made them the night before the shower at 8 am.  I am having a hard time getting motivated.  I think it's because I have so much going on right now, that I can't work on anything else, but I can't seem to get what I need to get done, done either.  Does that even make any sense?  Let me read it back.  Okay, makes sense to me.  I hope it does to you, also.  Tomorrow, we are having an extra quilt-in (yea!!) and my mother is in Texas and coming to stay with me and go to the quilt-in.  (yea!!)  However, her bed is covered in stuff so I will need to clear that off before tomorrow night.  Also, her shower has tubs that need to be washed, so they will have to be washed before tomorrow night.  And, I am presenting at the Andrew's quilt group, so I need to gather my quilts and stuff so I will have them in the car with me in the morning when I go to the quilt-in.  whew.  that is just a smidgen of what I need to do before 10 in the morning.  I also need to clean out my car, get gas, fill my car with all my quilt-in stuff, my show stuff and hey, that's it.  Okay, I see the light at the end of the tunnel.  Now to finish pulling my quilts for Andrews - no wait, off to feed the dogs.  Okay, one more delay in my list.  I hope everyone else is having a better spring break....
