  .Days like this I wish I was a man.

Edith, even on a bad day I'll never wish to be a man. Women have it all and do it all.

Elizabeth, I love your rag quilt!

Before I lost my job my husband used to complain that I was always doing something around house, reading or working on some craft when I was home. Then I had the audacity to go to bed at 10 pm.When he accepted the job here in Ohio, the plan was I was going to stay in Chicago and keep working until our house was sold. I was laid off in July and very content to stay in Chicago, but he didn't see the point. Everyone thought that was so sweet that he missed me. When I got here, I was going to start looking for a job but he told me he wanted me to stay home for a while and 'rest'. Not to mention, if there was any running to the property to check on the builders during the day I would be available and he wouldn't have to worry about it. Recently I heard him tell friends, he doesn't want me to work because it nice to come home to a clean house, cooked meals and clean laundry. Not to mention, the shopping and errands are done, too. I told him I overheard that an he said he had a hard time keeping up with all of the household stuff and his new job. (Mind you, he lived in a 2 room apartment!) After 30 years of marriage, he's still clueless!!!

I have just finished another quilt, the color strip quilt I started over three years ago and I will be sending the pictures tomorrow after hubby takes them.  I also finished several other items on and off while doing this one.  I will have many more to post soon and a special one designed by me and quilted by me for Valentines day.  It will be a lap quilt.  I am so used to sewing large, large quilts that a smaller quilt seems done to quickly for me.

I agree that when we do lap size quits they seem to go so fast after making kings and queens most of the time.  But it is nice to have a quick project once in awhile. Anxious to see pics.

Men are from Mars... I love this one book and when I did it out I will give you the correct name but for now - it told me that although we both are similar we are so completely different - they thing in a really 2D world and we think in a 4D world... I used to get so upset with jay when something wasn't done just the way I knew he should be doing it... then I found he didn't remotely think that way so I now tell him exactly how I want something done - it gets done - we are both happier... it does get old though that evevytiime i ask him if he would wash the dishes that that means do the kitchen too... he is learning though...lol 21 years and counting - by the time we reach where Edith and Gini are I might have him trained...lol
