I'm So Busted!!!

First before I get to the busted part thanks to everyone who wrote about loosing things in weird places. After my traumatic day of throwing my keys in the trash, it was very reassuring to know that I am NORMAL :-)!! You guys are the best.

Now the busted part. Ms. Doe called me yesterday and reminded me about how I was suppose to be finishing what I have -- hmmmmm, did I really say that???? I did - busted!!! I hate when my conscience calls me on the phone :-(!

Tonight I have a sewing night with my Monday night group, so I'm dragging along some of those projects I need to FINISH!! I won't get them all done I know, but just having them pulled out in a basket together will really help. So here is what I plan to tackle. Here's a Halloween hanging from last year that just needed the binding. Not very big ---- so no problemo, I'll get this baby done tonight :-)! Next we have...and you are probably saying what in the heck is that mess? A pile of quilt squares from the Picket Fence line from Moda. Just needs to be put together---well and maybe a few more blocks pieced-- but again, no problem!

Now here's the problem, well not really it was me I'll admit. This is a Lucky Star quilt for the show in January, and I had worked on it a week ago and started putting the rows together when I realized it was wrong -- simple quilt, stupid quilter!! So I've ripped it apart, laid it out again, and now I will put it back together again. My work is cut out for me.

Yesterday on my way home from my Mr. Potato shopping spree I was at a signal and there were two young men, each on a motorcycle, revving their engines, horsing around a bit. When the signal changed they zoomed around me and proceeded down the road. One of the guys went to make a right turn up a street -- he was leaning waaaay over, and then his rear tire hit a puddle of water. The bike came down on him and he slid for a short distance. I pulled over, and a woman coming the other way did the same. About that time his friend realized something was wrong and came back. By this time, we could see that he could move, his friend got the bike off him. He was really embarrassed, but we were so thankful to see he was OK. It was horrible to see it happen, because he went down so hard. He kept reassuring us he was fine, all the while us two moms hovering over and making sure he really was OK. He really just wanted us to leave him alone!! We told him how he needed to go to a doctor, not sure if that was going to happen, but we gave it the old mom try. Walking away I just reflected on how in an instant things can change, having a son about that age, and thinking about his mom and how lucky she was that her son was alright. When I went to drive away I heard a weird crunch. Got out and here is what I found .....the crunch was the lens, hey now that's kind of a cool new style. Just readers - I'm just glad that young man is OK!

ROFLMAO!!!!!!!!!! So now your telling us that you drove over your own glasses!!!! You are to stay in your house with the doors locked and do not go outside for anything. LOCK THE DOORS!!! You are not to be trusted. That poor guy on the motorcycle must have been saying to himself "oh lord this is only half of what my own mother is going to be saying to me when I tell her what happened". My Boo wanted to buy a motorcycle and I said NO!!! They scare me to death. That guy is just lucky that you Ms. Menopausal didnt run over him!! LOL

Cheryl said...

I'm telling you I was glad the other lady saw was happened because I might of thought I did it!!! You know how I hang them on my shirt, they must have fallen off when I jumped out of the car. Everyone start worrying, I'm headed out the door around 5 p.m.
:-)!

Cheryl said...

OK - I mean "what happened." Stop
laughing Sharon:-)

Doe said...

Hey, I didn't mean to point out the obvious! LOL! I hope I didn't get you into trouble? Anyway, I would have done the same thing. Work on the old projects and sneak in a new one WITHOUT telling everyone about it.

Cheryl said...

Thanks OK - someone has to keep me on the straight and narrow :-)!

Jeanne said...

I would love to see a picture of you wearing those glasses. LOL Glad the motorcycle guy was okay.

Bren said...

I laughed when I saw your glasses, I have sat on mine before and did almost as much damage. That's why I buy the cheapo ones now.

Uh, Cheryl? Do you know that it's FRIDAY? When I read, "Tonight I have a sewing night with my Monday night group," I DID wonder whether you had your dates mixed up. Or maybe you're just getting ready now for Monday 'cause it will take you a couple days to find your keys? I wrote about you on my blog today, sort of--did you see that? Thanks for providing blog material! LMAO!

Darlene said...

I agree with Sharon - stay home - bolt the doors - don't go anywhere. You are very dangerous to YOURSELF. LOL

Put those glasses on your head next time!

I'm glad Mr. Motorcycle Man was OK.

Cheryl said...

I'll work on that picture Jeanne!

Cheryl said...

I'm sure the way things have been going Bren, I will be sitting on my new glasses soon!

Cheryl said...

Kim I knew I was in trouble when I got a message from Sharon that you wrote about me on your blog....:-)!
My Monday group meets one Friday a month for a late night sew --- I don't know why you couldn't figure that out!!! I'm checking out your blog next.

Cheryl said...

I think that would include hiding under the covers Darlene. Next week has got to be better!!!

Linda said...

Oh my gosh what a week you've had, but I have to say it's provided all of us with a good laugh. Lucky bike rider, that he didn't have any bad injuries. Was he lucky that you were there though?......lol.... Sorry I just couldn't resisit.

Cheryl said...

That also came to my mind Linda -
hope I didn't pass the curse on to
him:-)!

Carol said...

Next week WILL be better! If not...follow Sharon's advice LOL

Cheryl said...

That's what I keep thinking Carol!!

Nicole said...

I broke my glasses in half this week, and was trying to prop both sides up on my face to read something at Kinko's, and every person in the place was laughing at me. Luckily my glasses come from the drug store!

Red Geranium Cottage said...

OMG Cheryl, you have to put those glasses on and snap a photo. That would be hilarious. DO IT!!! I mean it go ahead get the camera and snap, snap!!! You know we will be laughing our butts off. Give us something to laugh at ok??

momma said...

I threw out my brand new cell phone on accident, and by the time I retraced my footsteps and figured out what happened, the trash man had already come!!!!!

Wendy said...

Oh my what a hectic day you had. Better take the next few days off and stay home and quilt some of those unfinished projects...lol

Cheryl said...

Not your cell phone Deb?!!! I'm finding great comfort in knowing we are all doing this kind of crazy stuff!!

Cheryl said...

I'll have John snap a photo of me
Sharon - I will look so cool. We're off to our family party today - hopefully I'll blog later.

Cheryl said...

Great idea Wendy!! We are having cold, rainy weather - perfect quilting weather. And if I don't get to some of those unfinished projects, my conscience, I mean Doe, will get after me.

Katie said...

Well I haven't sat on my glasses yet....but it's just a matter of time! LOL

Cheryl said...

You'll be joining the crushing your glasses club soon Katie..but you will have lots of company :-)!

Nan said...

I totally love the idea of finishing what you have - it's easier said than done, though, isn't it? At least for me it is! I love the projects you have to finish - they're great!
I'm glad the motorcycle rider was okay - it's so sweet of you to have stopped. Once a mom, always a mom, isn't that right?
