Too many pokers in the fire I guess

It seems like I'm trying to do too many things and I'm afraid not too many of them are being done successfully. :(

I haven't been doing much quilting at all. Seems like World of Warcraft is taking much of my free time. Ah well, it is a fun game and I'm enjoying myself. Today my husband and two sons are going out for pizza and then bowling. It's been awhile since we've been. I tried to make it bi-monthly for awhile but that too slipped away. It should be fun for sure. Funny thing is we'll all be making comments about sore muscles tomorrow. My youngest son and I have been trying to lose weight and have been successful there. He's lost about 27 lbs and I've lost about 20. Sure is good to get it off and hope to continue dropping some more.
I do have backing fabric and quilt tops made, just need to get something on the frame. Come on enthusiasm! Sure wish I had a local quilting buddy. I know that would get me going.

Where did the two weeks go?

I can't believe that two weeks has gone by already. I think when you fill your days with things to do, cleaning, Christmas shopping, a little party, tree shopping, etc, the days fly by and you don't even feel like you had time off. Ah well, I'll quit whining now. :) I had a wonderful Christmas, got a new computer and I LOVE it. Also got a Snuggie, if you don't own one but think you might get one, DON'T. Sorry if you love yours but they are huge, the arms are probably 18" too long as is the bottom. I have a little flannel throw for my couch and I will continue to use it. 

Sadly, I did no quilting over the break. I did do some piecing on the pinwheels. Not sure how I'll arrange them. Seems like all pinwheels is just too busy. I'll get my family to help me figure out how to do it. They are great that way.

I'm a migraine sufferer and with my Inderal I usually do amazingly well but, since the day after Christmas I have had a migraine every day. Don't know why but I'm ready for it to stop. The weather has been really cold here. It's almost 10:30 am and about 36 degrees according to my thermometer. Yikes!
I do know I'm prone to migraines when it's windy so it must be the ions or something. I've also had a sore throat for 3 days. Am I falling apart?? Maybe I just need my regular schedule of work to get me back on track.

I do hope you all had a fantastic holiday and 2011 is the best year of your life!
