Chapter 13

okay, my first official day of summer. Yesterday was my last day of work. I was supposed to be in class today for the mentor/priode program, but until we get the house fixed up, we were told not to come to classes. sighs. I even got rid of my kitties. I feel like they are telling me I am not good enough. Anthony says it is because they do not think we will do all that we ahve to do to pass inspection,a nd that we will prove them wrong. I hopw so. I plan on doing a little housework today (at least clearing a path to my sewing machine and cleaning off the table) so I can iron and cut my muslin for the base of my crazy quilt. I am going to cut 9 blocks, to get started with. I should be able to get nine blocks done this summer. i know it will only take me an afternoon to sew the blocks, it is the embelishing that is going to take the summer.
We are in a heat wave here. with the heat index, it has been like 104 and very humid. I hate humid. I miss the desert at times like this. sighs.

Chapter 12

I did not realize how long it has been. Life gets in the way of so many things. A lot has been happening here. Anthony and I are working on fixing up the house to pass inspection for the Mentor/Pride program. We are going to be foster/adoptive parents. the sad part is giving up all my kitties. They have to go. I think Monday he is going to try and get them to the ASPCA. It breaks my heart. we have been trying for two months to find them a home, but no luck.
I have decided to make this the summer of rediscovery. I have stopped creating. I have done very little cross stitch, embroidery, knitting, crocheting, or quilt making. That has to change this summer. I let depression and family problems get in the way. I only have a week and a half of school left, then we are out for the summer, so I am going to take my 8 weeks or so and create. I also plan to develop some kind of schedule. I have got to get back on track. I have stopped exercising and my diet is all bad. So it is time to get back on track.
