Well, that didn’t take long. Theoretically, this is the space that Sydney will be sleeping in, starting tomorrow night.
So, why does it have a sewing machine in it?
Because I need to make a sleeve to hold this rolled quilt and this open space where a bed will be is the easiest space to use and then to clear up again.
This quilt is rolled around a pool noodle and will be inserted into a long sleeve for transport and safety at the quilt show. Do your quilt shows require that you bag your quilts? Around here, they call for a pillowcase. I roll mine to avoid creasing, but when I deliver the quilts, there’s always a pillowcase in hand, just in case. There is no sense in being disqualified for such a little thing.
We are all amazing calm, considering we’re expecting a houseguest and I’m in a quilt show and we’re making plans with other people. Always before, anything out of the routine and out of the ordinary would have us all in a twitter of frustrated excitement, each pumping more adrenaline than the other two. But, not this time. It’s funny. Now that Sydney is older, we don’t have lives where nothing out of the ordinary happens. It’s always something out of the ordinary and I think Rob and I have grown quite numb to it.
Other families that we observe already seem to have developed this numbness. Maybe that’s the result of having their kids since birth. When we got Sydney, the first thing we focused on was making her fit in with our lives. More and more, it feels like I’m trying to fit in with hers.
Does she really think I’m all the uncool things she says I am? And, is it possible that she believes I’m really that uncool? And, does it count that she smiles at me when she says them? Does that mean she doesn’t believe them and is just picking at me? Because just a little bit ago, I thought she thought I was at least moderately cool.
Everybody have a great Tuesday. I’m sure we will be in a hyperactive frenzy tonight. Yay, us. Doin’ it, bein’ it, feelin’ in.
Oh, and what’s up with the spammers? Are you guys getting porn spam all of a sudden? Or spam that’s just a series of random letters? What’s up with that? I never click a link and I report each one as spam and then delete. I hope that’s enough.
