burned out

I would like to know who made this quilt. I love it. Maybe I can find the pattern for it.

Today I am going to go by Lyn's house and pick up a quilt top. I am so not in the mood to quilt. I feel like quilting has lost it's fun. When I originally started making quilts for the marines it was fun, but now it is not fun any more.

I am going to be two quilt's short. Oh well. They will just have to get mailed I guess.

Last night Rusty and I were talking about our money situation. I told Rusty that I sat down with the bills and that we will be fine. It is just going to be tight for a few months.

I had Rusty go to his old bank and make sure that his accounts were still good. We have decided that I will give Rusty a set amount every payday, and that is all he gets. It was way to crazy trying to have two people manage the money.

Last night Rusty said something to me that meant a lot to me. He said that he was sorry for putting us in this situation and that he is sorry for all the bad choices he made. 

That meant so much to me. With that said it is time to move on.

I have applied for a few jobs with the school system. I would like to work for school's because then I would be off when the children are off. I just know that things are going to get crazy with Rusty, Amber and I working. Nikki is also looking for a job.

I just hope that we can work out everyone schedules so that someone can be home with Ryan otherwise it look's like I won't be working all that much.

Right now I have a black cat sitting here watching the screen. At any second now he will jump and try to chase the letters. I know that I should get a life, but for now I am going to enjoy the time that I am able to stay locked up in the house.

Next week Rusty will be in 29 palms for the week. I wish I was going, but no can do. I am however going to give Rusty some extra money to go buy Ryan two Christmas presents. That's right I said Christmas.

The last time I was at the exchange they had cammies and a flight suit for real cheap, so I want to get them now before they are sold out or the price goes up.

Yesterday I officially signed up for Egypt. Now I need to go get my passport. I have not had a passport in years.

Well I guess I need to go do my hair and grab some tea so that I can go to Lyn's house. Maybe spending some time with a friend will bring me out of my funk.

I sure hope so.  I wish we lived closer and you and Lyn both could come and sit and look through my quilt books and make copies of anything you wanted.  Maybe we could find that cat pattern.  I'd love to help.  I hope you come out of feeling so blue but it's understandable considering the circumstance. Well, bless Rusty for having enough heart to recognize and apologize.  That's huge. I knew you were going toward the sun but Egypt?  I think I missed something.  

I hope you have a good time over at Lyn's and feel perkier when you come back.

I love that kitty quilt block!  So cute!
I'm glad that Rusty was able to say he was sorry.  Mine does that too...and then goes and does it again.  He's getting better about things though!

Kelli, Hey neighbor!  I was wondering if you would consider making quilts for money?  I have been wanting a quilt with my daughters old clothes and one for my momma, but darnit I cant thread a needle!  If so  would love to know your prices.  Thanks

I do hope your visit with Lyn will help you get out of your funk; I can't wait to hear of your Egypt adventures although I know it will be months down the road. the quilt is beautiful!! Do tell us if you figure out what the pattern is

I know its hard to stay motivated with it, but I think the quilt making you do is awesome for the marines!!

((Hugs)) Just because you could use one to warm you in your funk....I know it gets stressful and your getting burned out. But remember the Marine who left his bag unpacked and on the top of it was the quilt you made...They do make a difference to them and it does matter. (Hugs) Indigo
