Herself at Day Tripper and Herself Quilting: Quilted. That was my afternoon. Today measuring meds and packing the non-essential stuff as I am going to be vastly too busy for anything tomorrow. Today too, finished off the Blue Quilt top....at last.
- The Shot: Now we know that the shots last about two weeks. I’m left with questions one of which is why didn’t the first shot years ago work, and the second is what can I do to make these shots last longer. I’m not a fan of pain without pain pills especially when the pain ends up going from my neck to my ankle. Sitting at the sewing machine and at the computer makes things worse.
- Quilting. Not all the corners of all the blocks met, but I am to the stage with this piece that I don’t care. It’s a terrible attitude. Half the long strips are now sewn together. I’ll finish this part of the top construction today and put the quilt away until we return. Of all my quilts, I like the “House Quilt” best. The individual blocks are not boring, and boring is my enemy with this quilt.
- Aaron called in the middle of my quilting. There was this voice I didn't recognize from far, far away Afghanistan....a pause....."Gramma?" I was like a kid. So very exciting. We will see him tomorrow.
- Packing. G is trying the new/old way of packing, bundling. He saw that video that told him he could pack for thirty days in a small roll on. Me…I’m lazy. I have some of those bags that compress things. 9 days = 3 pair of pants = and 9 shirts. One good outfit. I do want to eat real Chicago pizza in Chicago, and that will probably preclude good clothes. Bringing: 2 pair of shoes: black. Colors: black, acid green, and two cream tops. I love this stage of travel.
