Yesterday was a rotten day. Not in a life-changing way, just one of those terrible horrible no good very bad days that happen to us all. A pair of glasses got broken. We had to throw out most of the contents of our freezer. While my husband and I were sorting through that mess, trying to determine what was still edible, my daughter's pet bird died.
I've been trying to get my fifteen minutes of sewing done early in the day, before life can start to unravel. That was one of my big obstacles last year -- I'd get upset about something and instead of quilting when the opportunity arose, I'd be sulking about whatever stupid thing it was.
Hospital billing errors and messed up freezer door mechanisms are just stupid -- there's no other word for it. (Maybe a couple, but I'm trying not to say those in front of the children.) Once they've been taken care of to the best of our ability, spending the rest of the day upset about them doesn't help anyone. I don't know if I can stop myself from getting upset, but I can try to keep it from sabotaging the rest of my goals.
I've got one finish to show off this week, a baby quilt that I used to play with a new free motion quilting pattern.
