Roxanne, You Don't Have to Put on the Red Light

I'm so freaking excited that today is red... I've been chanting, "Two birds, one stone, two birds, one stone, two birds, one stone..."

Not only does it qualify for red but also for Friday's Work in Progress.

Fourteen rolls of 13-pieced squares awaiting ironing so they can be sewn together. Whew!

Last night Aaron and I were talking on the phone...

"So, when's Darwin's birthday party?"


"Not Sunday?"

"No, that's Father's Day..."

"Oh, crap. What time?"

"Two o'clock."

"Oh, crap. Are you freaking out Laura?"

"No... why?"

"You should."

::looking around the house:: "Oh, crap. I am now."
