They Don’t Come Much More Sick Than You*

So there’s not much coming out of me today…energy wise, a report from yesterday, or for that matter, voice noise. I can type but I can’t talk. I’m doing a lab at school today. I’m hoping my voice reappears OR…I will write it all down and use teacher sign language to keep them from destroying the room. We’ll see how that works.

We did make it to the play and it was awesome until we had to leave before the end because they started late and our buses had to leave with us or without us, and we chose the former. It’s a long walk otherwise. That part sucked. But I think otherwise it went well. I came back and bought Footloose (the 1984 version) on Amazon Prime and we watched the last 45 minutes to see what happened. It was cool. They were mostly into it.

I then drove to San Ysidro to drop off work for next week’s show and met the curator, who had never seen an art quilt. She was sort of flabbergasted. I’m not sure if it was in a good way…she was still processing. She was expecting a painting, I think. But the guy that works there (he’s the gallery director, so he more than works there) had apparently talked me up from last year…he really liked the work…so I got in. That’s cool. Anyway, I’m looking forward to the opening.

But it took over an hour to get down there, drop stuff, and get back, and I wanted a nap so bad…but no. Need to grade. I got one assignment done…I’m down to one more assignment and all the makeups I didn’t finish on Sunday. Not bad. I think I can do this. But when I finished all of that, I went to bed. I read for a little while, but was falling asleep doing that, and finally gave up and did the sleep thing for real. I’m not better today, but I have more sleep in me.

So I only have two pictures for you: my quilt trimmed and folded up with the two possible bindings on top. Tonight I would like to be well enough to decide which one wins and sew it on.

We’ll see how that goes. I also need to go to REI to pick out my birthday present, so if I feel REALLY well, I might do that instead. Except Friday traffic. Maybe I’ll do that tomorrow. I also need to grade tonight and I’m in charge of making dinner, so that’s a thing.

And the second one…the girlchild’s official LinkedIn photo…

She’s graduating in a few months and everything is changing. Well, no…she is still the amazing kid she’s always been…just older and in a blazer and trying to find employment. Scary stuff.

Anyway, let’s hope my voice reappears and then lasts…and that no one breaks a test tube…and that I make it through the day, quite honestly.
