I did lots of ironing, cutting and sub-cutting today.
Well, when I wasn't napping in exhaustion from my gym stint. I used a different cardio machine that normal today and I burned 351 calories in 35 minutes. Can you say tired?! And I'm now painfully aware that I need to buy new shoes. :P
Anyhow, I got tagged by Quilting Fitzy to do a meme that Dorothy created. It's basically, what would be facts of life if Martha Stewart lived next door to you? Well, I'm adding a twist...
If my parents live next door...
-Whenever I make bread, I could give them the other loaf. I know my mom would really enjoy benefiting from her grinder. :)
-My mom and I could quilt a lot! Teamwork really does make things easier, and I enjoy showing her new stuff and tricks.
-We could also dye tons of fabric too. And have lots more time to play around with different methods and saturations.
-I could even help my parents with their plumbing company... hey, it'd just give my mom more time to play and Dad more time to hike/backpack/visit the guys. ;)
-I could just go "Dad! We have a leaky shower handle. Can you please help us fix it?" instead of having to depend on the apartment's maintenance guys. Yes, we really do have a leaky shower handle, but I don't wanna deal with strange men tromping all over my apartment, so I'm waiting for school to be out so my husband can deal with it. :P
Ironically enough... my in-laws live just over the next block, 6/10ths of a mile away. :) But my MIL has no interest in quilting, or sewing. Shucks, her bobbin winder hasn't been working for years on her sewing machine. But I had fun imagining what it'd be like if my parents lived next door. As you probably can guess, I'm on pretty good terms with them. :)
