Why is it when you have something going on every night that is the week you get sick. This was what was scheduled for this week:
Tuesday: YC meeting
Wednesday: Oakcrest Kick-Off ( Jean is a lifesaver)
Thursday: Teach a quilt class ( thanks mom for doing it for me)
Monday I woke with a sore throat and by the time I got home from work felt pretty lousy. I went to the Dr on Tuesday and had a 103.4 fever, bronchitis, ear infection, and a sinus infection. After two days home from work in bed, I still wasnt feeling great so I called the Dr and had to go back in for a shot. Apparently the bronchitis turned into Pneumonia which knocked me flat.

Today is Friday and I've now been out of work for 4 days. Wish it was doing something other than coughing my guts out. Oh well, I do feel better. Not 100% yet but more like 70%.
I didnt even picked up my fabric or my pattern books so I knew i was pretty sick.
Here's hoping for a healthy rest of the winter. I think I will be getting a Pneumonia shot when I get better.

BL week 3 goal-

I really wish I had happy feet so walking wasnt such a pain for me. It isnt my feet that hurt so much as the back sides of my ankles. Anyone have suggestions on what I can do?? I look like a weirdo when I get up from walking because they stiffen up and I can hardly walk.

Complaining aside, my goal this week is to walk every day and eat more veggies.

Super Simple #2

Here is a picture of my pattern #2 which is super simple.

Tuesday, January 20, 2009


My first pattern is done and ready for distribution at none other than "Material Girls" in South Jordan. If you have time, you should pop in to Material Girls this weekend and check out the fabulous sale Nadine is going to have. While your there, check out my quilts and patterns. She has cut some kits for the Yo-Yo Baby one which makes me kind of scared in case they don't sell??!!!!!

Stay tuned here and on my "Sewintoquilts" blog for more quilts and patterns.

Our ward is doing a Biggest Loser Support group in an effort to get fit. This last Saturday was the first weigh in ( not too late if you still want to join us) and I about died! I''m embarrased to admit the scales we are using have me weighing my heaviest. How embarassing!!!!!

Not for long though- I am going to set weekly goals and use this blog to account for what I did. This past week since today is Thursday has just been to get over the initial shock of the scale and take in more water. Simple I know but I have been fighting a sinus cold and the last thing I have wanted to do was get on the treadmill.

week 2 goal coming up sunday... This is my "now" picture--uugghh!!

50 Years old!!

Wonderful sister and supporter of all!!!

Happy Birthday to you-

I can hardly believe it but my big sis is turning 50 tomorrow. Last night we planned a surprise party for her and all the adults went to Gecko's for dinner. It was alot of fun.

Happy Birthday to you---

We can always count on Gaelynn to make sure every Holiday is celebrated and is a lot of fun. Her absolute favorite is Christmas and if she had her way, Christmas songs would play year round as well as the tree would be a permanent fixture in our decor.

Happy Birthday Gaelynn--

She is the one in our family that coordinates most get togethers and I think she just might be some of the nieces and nephews favorite aunt Wee. :)

Happy Birthday to you!!!!

Gaelynn, I LOVE you and am grateful to have you as my big sis. I hope your Birthday is filled with love and laughter!! Remember, 50 is the new 30... which I kind of like because that would make me only 20. Ohhh to be 20 again!!!!
