Here it is the middle of January, and this is my first post of the year! Holy cow....how did that happen!?!
Well......I've been sick again! And I was thinking this was very familiar, so I looked at my Jan 2011 posts, and yeah.....I was sick then, too! What the hell!?! I even called out of work last week......I NEVER do that! And spent the whole day in bed, not even the couch! Yep....sick!
I'm feeling better now......but that dragging feeling is still lingering! Just suck it up, and move on, right!?! :o)
So, I have been quilting, but not much......nothing to show, cuz I haven't taken any pics.....hopefully in a few days. I've got the baby quilt top done, but am still figuring on the batting. I talked with the gals at our quilt group, and I'm going to make a few small quilt sandwiches to see how the different battings behave when washed. I need for this baby quilt to be fairly flat after washing, not crinkled and puckered like I usually like my quilts to look. This baby quilt needs to have that 'polished, smooth, modern' look to it, so the puckers might be too much. Of course, I haven't done this yet, so hopefully this week I can get to it!
What I DID get to today was .......just like this time last year.......I booked another cruise! Woohoo! Could it be because it was only 2 degrees out this morning when I woke up???? Hmmmmm!
Hubby and I are going on Royal Caribbean in March/April to the Western Caribbean, porting in Cozumel and Puerta Costa Maya, Mexico. 5 fun filled days out of Tampa, where we'll get to stay and visit with our cousins, April and Drew (yep, same April that the quilt is for!). By then, the baby will be born, so we'll get to see the little peanut, too! Yay!
I'm so excited I could just bust! :o)
And I still need to book the excursions, but the plan is to take the Xrail dune buggy drive through the jungle, to the Jade Caverns, take a little swim, and drive back out! A totally mud-splattered fun kind of day! Yay! If you're wondering what it really is.....here's a link to a blog from a gal that was just there! Fun!
Of course, one of the excursions was to do a zip line, and we were totally jazzed about doing it, but then we saw a video about the exact one we would be on.....and it's nothing like what we want! We want to be that Geico Pig on the zip line! Have you seen that little guy! Too damned cute! Wee wee weeeeeee! HA! Check out the link below........love the little pig feet dancing in the air, and the little snort......pinwheels! HA!
GEICO Pig on a Zip line video! Too funny!
Ok.......I'm laughing too damned hard now to be able to type!
Hope you all have a great week!
Wee wee weeeeeeeee!
