Sew Mountain

You read that right.  I said SEW mountain.  So, you know how I said I was going to start work on that pile of sewing?  Yeah.  I did.  And I got it all done except for ONE dress to hem.  I did both sides of a pillow the kiddos had jumped on and busted out, I sewed up the back of a lion, I sewed the handle on the dino cave, I fixed Rex's busted tail.  I then went on to fix a zipper, close a hole in some brand new underwear, fixed a pocket, put on new hardware and repaired the straps on a dress, finished youngest's no-sew fleece blanket and then finished oldest's Star War's fleece/yarn blanket.  I also repaired one of my shirts.  I did the whole ding dang pile but that one dress!  I was sooooooo worn out yesterday evening it wasn't even funny.  I had NO idea that sewing would wear me out that much, but it sure did.  And I am SO HAPPY that my boys were good all day so that I could get so much done.  My whole corner is cleaned out now.  Makes me want to work on more projects.  :)

But... we are pretty well snowed in.  So... I have no idea what we are going to be doing.  A big part of me wants to just chill but the other part of me is like, NO!  We need to get things done!  I'm weird, I know.  I can't help it!  I think I'm just not going to plan anything and do whatever feels good.  I do hope to get in a workout tonight, too.  But other than that... that's about it.  OH.  I know what I need to do!  I need to finish cleaning out the fridge.  I have some berries and squash about to go bad.  I think I will bake the berries and make a cobbler.  I may roast the squash and make soup.  Especially since we have a small bunch of salad... maybe squash soup and salad if the squash is still good.  Either way, I probably should hop to it.  I didn't get anything done but all of that massive sewing yesterday!  So worth it.  LOL  Ok, off I go!
