It’s Monday Again?

  • Posted on November 27, 2006 at 4:53 pm

Darn, I so wanted to sleep in this morning, especially when I realized that I had mild abdominal cramps when I woke up. Spoot!

Now I’ve spent half of my day coding in one programming language and I need to shift gears to code in one or two others now. I’m in the mid-day slump, so I’m completely lacking in focus and could really use a nap. I know that I’ll be feeling better once my lunch partially digests and the sleepiness goes away, but right now I want to curl up in a ball under my desk and snore.

Not much to write about. This weekend was rather uneventful. I had all of these high hopes and wonderful intentions last week, but by the time the holiday came around, I think I just needed some downtime. Though I did start cleaning out both our and the spare bedroom. We generated what I’m sure is too much trash to fit in the can, so I’m not sure what we’ll do when we bag it up and try to take the trash to the end of the driveway tonight. 😉

I did spend some time stitching on Cathy’s round robin piece. I’m probably 80% or more finished at this point. There’s no backstitching and I have 4 colors left to work with. Two of which are halfway or more finished. I knew I shouldn’t have left the leaves until the end. Working with all of those greens gets a little dull after a while. I should be able to get it finished this week, which is nice because I’ll be seeing Cathy this Sunday. Not that she’s necessarily going to get her round robin at that point, though… because I have a surprise for her. I hope that she ends up not reading this entry for some reason. And if you are reading it, Cathy, if you want it to continue to be a surprise, then don’t read the rest of this post.

Okay, is she gone? The coast is clear? Cathy’s round robin ran into a little bit of trouble when one member of our RR group got married and was very overwhelmed during the time that she had Cathy’s RR fabric. As a result, the woman was unable to finish her design, but she did include photocopies of the chart (let’s not talk about the legality of that at this time). As a result, I want to try to not only finish my part, but this other woman’s, as well, so that Cathy has a completed round robin when I send it back. Otherwise, she would be the only one in the group not to have a completed project and what kind of Christmas present would that be? So, here’s hoping that I can manage it! The piece the woman chose looks beautiful, but has a TON of partial stitching in it, so no wonder she abandoned it. I think that I might have been tempted to, as well. Wish me luck, please! 🙂
