I've been back home since last Tuesday, but I can honestly say I have no clue where the time went. I got home Tuesday evening at 6:30 after a long day on the road...leaving Hampton Tuesday morning was the hardest thing ever...he kept saying "Stay Mamie" and then he said "Just read one more book"...how could I resist? Sat down and read with him...kissed, hugged and then hugged some more, started down the front steps and he called to me "Mamie, come right back"...OMG I just wanted to turn right around and stay, but I knew I needed to get home...turned around and said "I'll be back soon" trying very hard not to cry, I didn't want him to be any more upset than he was. By the time I got to the top of their street, I was crying so hard I could barely see the traffic light change. I called Andy to let him know I was on the road and he wasn't sure who it was on the phone. OMG...pitiful! Cried my way out of the state of Alabama...I stopped to get a Diet Coke at McDonald's and I'm sure I scared the poor girl at the counter to death...red puffy eyes and splotchy face.
Andy left Wednesday at around noon for a long weekend in the Keys with some friends from college...they had a great time...The 5 of them try to get together at least once a year...very, very fun! I thought I'd have tons of time to sew my little fingers off, but I had major computer problems...my laptop went nuts...it was locking files, and not opening things, I'd try to open one thing and something else would open instead. Took it to the trusty Geek Squad at Best Buy, I love Sean there, he got me all fixed up...said Windows was corrupted...go figure?! So a day without my computer and then a day to get everything loaded back on and ready to go again. It's running like a champ now.
Mother always worries that I don't eat when Andy's gone so she insisted that I go to her place for brunch on Sunday...so off I went...it was great, always good to see mom and the food was wonderful, but Sunday was gone and then Andy came home Monday...POOF the week was gone.
I did get my Simply Sophisticated blocks done and I've been working to get my Designer Mystery BOM put together...hopefully I'll have a picture to show you really soon.
I've started a new blog...now don't laugh, since I can hardly keep this one up to date...but I have some fabric and books that need new homes...LOL...so I thought I'd keep it separate from my regular blog....the address is Brown Quilts and MORE...I'll let you know here when I post something new and you can check it out. I just finished the first post with some fabric.
I'm off to finish my BOM...I'll check in later...hopefully with a picture.
