Day eight of 19.
I've finally found my groove, I think, except for the incident at the Lawrence pool yesterday when Griffin didn't see me and thought I left him and he was trying to catch me in the van.
I was still in the damn pool.
And I asked him if he thought I'd actually ever leave him and he replied, "No Mommy, you'd never leave me. But in the moment, I freaked out."
Damn, I wonder where he gets his freaking-out capabilities.
Oh, right. Never mind.
When Aaron is out of town I have a small obsession with cleaning out the house. Since he is such a pack rat, I can't throw anything out, including expired food (side note: over a year and half when I was diagnosed with being allergic to wheat, I cleared out all wheat-containing products out of our home to donate to a food pantry. Aaron went though the bags and "rescued" two bags of stuff to take into work and share with co-workers. Two weeks ago I had to go into his cave to get something and guess what I found. THAT'S RIGHT: FOOD. Nearly two-year old all-expired food sitting in his cave. Argh!).
So, when he's gone I clear shit out.
Due to our food allergies, I keep close ties on all our food, so the pantry didn't need to be cleaned. So I've been focusing on the bathrooms and basement refrigerator (with five year old pop, I swear).
I've also been going through my fabric stash. It's such a mess. I can't tell what's been washed and ironed and what hasn't. So I've been slowly going through and washing and ironing everything.
And I set aside some fabric to make a pillow. Considering the fact that my last pillow was made in January, yeah, hi, I'm way over due for new pillows. Fucking slacker.
And hey! I have a question for you all -- should I quilt the new pillow or no? I have the batting. And if I do quilt it, what should I use on the back of the quilting part? Muslin? Just plain fabric? And do I need to make the back quilted too? Or is it cool just make it a single layer?
Hi, my name is Laura. I'm so damn indecisive I'm letting the internet vote for how I should make a fucking pillow.
