In response


to everyone wanting to know why I keep working even though I’m like, 10 minutes from having this baby and am in pain every waking second of the day:

It’s not my favorite song, and it sure as hell isn’t a favorite video, but the chorus can’t be beat:

Oh, there ain’t no rest for the wicked,
Money don’t grow on trees,
I got bills to pay,
I got mouths to feed,
There ain’t nothing in this world for free.
I know I can’t slow down,
I can’t hold back
Though you know I wish I could,
Oh no there ain’t no rest for the wicked,
Until we close our eyes for good.



Nothing is really going on today; I’m on day two of maternity leave. Yesterday was full of working on the house so today I took the day off and only opened new bank accounts and vacuumed the soon to be steam cleaned living room. I might try to do some dishes and laundry and clean the oven I am trying to do nothing else today.

So for fun:



Also, a new project that may or may not ever get done:


Most hexagon quilts are comprised of hexagons that are about 1″ per side. I do plan on dying one day, so I used a 2″ hex. I have no idea what it will look like but it’s a great way to use up scraps. I might actually make a planned hex quilt for ze bebe.

On being a pregnant, sloppy mess


I am tired of being pregnant. Not because of the pain that I am currently in because this baby thinks my uterus is a hammock, not the pain that I am currently in because of all the swelling and numbness and not because of the pain that I am currently in because the hormones are loosening my joints and it hurts to walk, move, blink, etc.

I am tired of being pregnant because I am more moody than usual (if you can believe that) and I cry. At. Everything.

I cry at work because the document feeder on the scanner fucks up.

I cry when I realize it’s only Wednesday and not Thursday like I thought it was all day.

I cry when the furniture store goes out of business and I was *so* ready to finally get a couch.

I cried last night when watching The Sound of Music.

And then I cried today because a friend of mine posted this on Facebook:
