ready or not…houston here i come…

boy it has been a busy week… i just finished doing the dishes from the Monday Night football game…I know I shouldn’t admit that, but that is how busy I am…it is Wednesday night… i am running brochures for fall market in Houston, trying to pack, can’t leave any dishes in the sink…and oh yeah..take the garbage out…just too much stuff…laundry…don’t leave anything in the washer..hey minnesota…i hope you go to the Superbowl!!!!!    Can’t forget to pack some sewing for the airport and hotel…think i have to check 2 bags…too many brochures and samples that i have loaned out and did not get back in time to make the trailer…speaking of trailer, Hubby is in Houston, watching the Yankees by himself in our Hilton Hotel room.  did i mention i finished that quilt!  As the crow flies….see all  those lines…that is hand quilting! all 66×66 inches of it…Now really it wasn’t that bad, i just think i can alway do one more thing…DSC02572I got up at 4:30 am today to finish binding!  I did treat myself with a massage at 10am, for getting it done! and to get all the knots out of my neck and back…as i sit here i actually am sore in my back where she was working them out..first time that has happened.  I am a little bummed about going to Houston for only one reason.  I started working out 2 days a week with Sargent Brenda show here below…( I made her flex for my photo)  I work  with her on tues. and thurs..I have had 4 sessions so far and survived…I want to keep going, even though she made me almost pass out the first session, guess you have to eat before your go work out…who eats at 7:30am??? But anyway… I am pretty serious about getting another 20lbs off.  I did 2o last year after Houston, so I am starting earlier this year, because it is going to be harder. I also go to kick boxing on monday and friday and on sat or sunday I will do Flow which is Yoga/Pilates/ti chi class…i love this class you don’t move off your mat hardly but i sweat just as much. So in Houston, I have to try and workout as much as possible…yah right!  Its always a challenge, but hopefully I can do it…the Sarge, gave me a little w/o to do in the Hotel gym….anyone want to join me??? I let you know who joined in…I will try to blog while in Houston..let you know what is going on NEW in the quilting world. My plane leaves at 6:15..way too early to have to get up for that…

Sargent Brenda...oh how i lust to have arms like this...
