Happy Wednesday!

I was going to title this post 'Quick Update,' but seriously, how many of those can I have in a 3 week period?

I know that I have been a little lax in my posting and I do still have a post for the donations ready to get verbage and links, but I have been a little busy this past week. Work has been pretty hectic and will probably be for the rest of the month at the very least.

Max reinjured his back last night. I couldn't really tell how, but I think that he missed a step outside when we were coming in because I remember hearing a noise, but then when we were inside, it seemed like he was limping and favoring a front leg. Of course, since he didn't want to pee outside and kept piddling whenever I tring to look at him, he ended up in the cage for the night and I had to wait until this morning to find out what was wrong. He is now on medication again.

I haven't gotten much sewing done. I spent a lot of last weekend napping and cleaning the house up. It is only me and the dogs living here and I just can't tell where this mess comes from. I must have gremlins!

Today, on my way home from work, I stopped at the post office and mailed my Spools quilt to Jen. Thanks to everyone's opinions (and Jen's outstanding math skills), I will be binding the quilt in black. I know that I just sent it, but I can't wait to get it back! It is going to be my first quilt to be quilted. I know, I have quilted a table runner, but this is bigger! I am very excited!

OK, now a quick explanation. My usual routine is to post first thing in the morning while my hair is drying from my shower or at night just after I eat dinner. The problem has been that I have been eating dinner later and lately it is between phone calls. I have also been staying up some God awful hours talking to George! I am not complaining about this because I have been totally enjoying talking to him and getting to know him and laughing a whole lot. I just wanted to explain where I have been.

OK, off to try and read some blogs and comment before the phone rings!

I too must have gremlins. That explains everything.

Hooray! George! A date with the special man! Wonderful.
Sorry to hear about Max hurting his back again. Maybe he needs a corset to keep his back straight. Imagine a mini doxie in a corset!
See you soon at Quilted Chaos. Karen

Gremlins -most definitely - they live at my house, too. They bunk right in there with my 3 year old!!

Sorry about Max.

WTG on the Spools - can't wait to see it done!

And don't worry about not posting because you are talking to George -we can wait!!! :-)

So excited to hear your lack of posting is due to George! I'm excited for you. I remember the hours I spent on the phone getting to know Paul because he lived 2 hours from me and we only saw each other on weekends. Have fun!

Heym we want to hear more about the fellow George. There are only so many hours in a day...and sometimes some things have to slide...so we understand.

Sounds like a worthy reason to stay up late! And if he can make you laugh that is awesome! RE: the dog: have you thought of giving him glusosamine/chondroitin like people take for arthritis? One of my old girls took it and it made a world of difference in her mobility!
