Today's block was an hour glass or a Quarter Square Triangle (QST) and flying geese are along the same lines, so I figure it counts.
I also cut about 20 sets of charms for the monthly charm swap I host. I need to mail them back out by Friday, and I hadn't cut mine yet! The theme this month was Christmas fabrics. With 10 charms (5" squares of fabric) per "set" that's a lot of squares. With mine (which were mine, Mom's and Diantha's combined) we had 56 sets--or 560 squares for me to swap. I'm about half way through (45 minutes, sheesh) and taking a break because too sleepy Hannah was out of sorts and yelling at me. See her yelling? Actually she was crying abd blubbering and yelling, "Ba-ba-ba-bad! Da-da-da-ba-ba-ba...." When Mama is ignoring her pitiful plea she calls for Daddy...or Nana.
I can sympathize with her though. I am having one of those days where breathing is almost too overwhelming. When I'm tense I clean but when I am depressed I just kind of shut down. I have had to force myself to do everything today, even speaking was an effort. I feel like SUCH a whiner and in my head a voice is telling me to suck it up and be glad I'm not an army wife. And I am, and thankful! My husband's job is fairly safe. But this third shift was already hard and this week they've been making him work 12 hour shifts, 6:30pm-6:30am. I am basically alone all the time with the kids and it's starting to wear on all of us. Again, I am such a whiner. And on the other hand, if they actually let him keep the overtime it will be such a blessing.
Maybe now that I'm done ranting I can try to lay Hannah down, read to Jeremiah and finish swapping charms. I just know I'll be confused now and have to re-count every pile! LOL
