Anyone else go to be at 7:30 last night? Oh just me? When I'm not in the mood to sew I'm just like maybe I'll just go to bed lol. I don't necessarily go to sleep when I go in there but it's nice and snuggly :)
All I have is boring stuff to do for work today. Blah. My boss is on vacation and she usually is the one that feeds me stuff to do.
California is going back to stricter lock down again which doesn't really mean anything to me since I don't do anything anyways. Apparently there is a run on TP again. Hopefully we can find some before I'm out lol. I have several large rolls left and it's just me and the two boys.
Since I'm bored I just put my Etsy shop that is mostly patterns and books on 70% sale for the day. Someone come buy it all lol. I went from over 700 items in my store to a little over 300 since the lock down. That's what not sourcing new products does I guess. I sold a lot of stuff when everyone was first at home but it is pretty slow now.
Over the weekend I worked on my little strip squares I've been making. I finished up all the green. It is not big enough on it's own to be a lap blanket so I will have to add borders or just set it aside until I have more squares.
Here is Tina helping
I made some yellow and orange ones too, only ended up with 3 sets of 4. I like the way the two colors turned out.
Now I'm working on some browns.
When they are done I'm just putting them aside for now until I figure out what I want to do with them lol. I like the piecing and sewing together part.

Good morning! Happy Saturday! For some reason I'm wide awake this morning. I have been awake since 4 am. Well not just "some reason", a combo of I keep going to bed early (because I can't sleep the night before), cramps, indigestion (remind me to tell Trevor no next time he wants Panda Express for dinner), the dog being a weirdo and Scott snoring. OH lay!
So after work yesterday I went over to my mother in laws. I had to knock on the door since they had to change one of the locks and I don't have a key for that yet. His sister was not impressed to see me lol. She warmed up after I had been there a bit though. So what was his mom calling him over and over about?

Well that's annoying.
Yesterday I got the automated call from the school saying my son missed first period. Uh no, he was logged on the whole time? So I called the school and apparently it's the students responsibility to correct the mistake. Kind of like guilty until proven innocent I guess eh? Stupid.
By the time I got done writing this he sent the teacher a text and he said he'd fix it.
I went into work yesterday and finally got all the 2020 applications rolled over to 2021. Everyone has their pretty blue sticker and a letter mailed to them. Whew. Now to go through all the files and make sure everyone has what they need to be eligible this year. In between doing payments and modifications. Woohoo. Nice and busy now that I'm the only one doing my job and my eye is only twitching a little bit. Working from home most of the time is definitely challenging with some of this stuff.
--whew I started this this morning and now it is almost 3pm, finally got a chance to finish! My boss is going on vacation next week and we are in "modagetton" as I call it with expiring contracts on 12/31. Whoever picked that date to make things expire was an asshole. Everyone that has to approve things and sign things is on vacation.
I also just put in for the day before and the day after Thanksgiving. We'll see anyone freaks out since there is a deadline on the 30th of November too. For some reason deadlines and the days I want to take off always align.
I'm going to go over to my mother in law's after work. She's 90 and she got a text on her flip phone and called my husband every 15 minutes for awhile freaking out about it lol. Probably just some spam. Haven't seen her in forever so won't hurt to go over there.
Wednesday night I worked on my bag of green scraps. Got them all sewing together to make some blocks out of. I have A LOT of green scraps. That should take me awhile. I'll probably be sick of making these after that. Still have a huge bag of pink, some yellows and a little bit of brown to go I think.

Good morning! Its a bit cold here this morning! Glad I have this little portable heater in my office/sewing room. Snookie is sure enjoying it. Maybe before I die I'll get central heat and air in my house.
I was busy with work all day yesterday and then I just flipped my chair around and played with my scrap project.
I ended up with 4 squares out of the red strips
and then worked on a bag of blue strips. In the bag I had A LOT of keychain strips already made up. I made a few more with the cute prints I had
and the rest of the pieces went into this big strip roll I made. I am going to make some more 6" blocks with these after work.

Brrr our weather went from hot to a little chilly over the last week. I am going to go online and order some sweat pants for my work from home outfits haha. During the summer I cut the legs off some of the ones I had to have more shorts lol.
So nice we finally know who our president is going to be and it is not someone who enjoys acting like an idiot.
I spent all weekend just playing around in the sewing room. I couldn't decide what I wanted to work on. I was cleaning up and a couple of the bags of colors scraps I have were getting full so I worked on making some stuff with them.
I made some crumb blocks
and then I sewed all the left over reds together to make more 6" blocks.

I can't believe we still don't know who our new president is, although I think it is fantastic that so many people went out and voted. Just goes to show the US if effed up and everyone wants change. Well except those racist assholes.
Anyhow, I went to work yesterday so I'd be there a bit early for the copier guy. This guy was not very friendly. Probably because we started off our relationship with him sending me an email that he'd been leaving me voicemails and to call him back. I replied that I wasn't sure who he was leaving voice mails with since I hadn't received any from him and I didn't have his phone number to call him back. I put my phone number in the email and then he called me.
So he was going to come at 11 and at 11 he calls to tell me he's in the middle of another job so he'll be late. I'm like ok. When he gets done he calls and says he's on his way from Lodi which is like an hour away. He finally arrived at almost 2. I had asked him to text my cell when he got there since I'm sitting in this back room and can't see the front door and everything is all locked up. He texted me that he was in the parking lot and I swear it took him like 1/2 an hour to actually get to the door. I had even sent him a text back asking if he found the building (he didn't respond).
I unlocked the door for him and was like oh you finally found us and he didn't even say anything. Had him sign in and escorted him to the copier and left him to his business. I went to check on him at one point and he was sitting at a desk writing up his enormous quote. He didn't even do any work on the copier.
So is sent that up to get approved and have to call him to come back and fix it now. Joy. He's such a lovely ray of sunshine. Although he was a lot nicer when he left than when he got there.
At 5:30 yesterday we did a "Facebook Room" my sister in law had set up so we could sing my niece Ava happy birthday. I don't know how people (teachers/students) can do zoom stuff all day. It was fun for about 30 seconds and then it started giving me anxiety. Each square had a kid in it that was screaming in the background and people playing with the filters.
