Sistas of the Traveling Trivet

I believe it started as a joke.  While waiting for the BOM I posted a picture of my messy sewing room, someone noticed the 'hot pad' and one thing lead to another.

Let the Adventure begin. . .

Good memory, Jan! Well, I talk about it enough,don't I? The pool will be warm, I don't want to freeze my tushy off! It looks much better today, funny what vacuuming leaves and tossing in some chemicals will do. Yeah, we didn't know what our girls were doing, did we? I probably knew too much. They do still come up with stories that I didn't know about. How did they make it to 20? Silly girls.

Froggie, I know you are looking forward to Mother's Day.  Isn't that when the pool opens?  Hope you have a few days before hand to warm the water.  Don't want you to chill your tushy!!!

I have the house back in order after the kiddies were here for Easter.  3 & 5 year olds tend to make a jumble of things.  The other 3 grands were 12 and 16, so not so messy.  It was great fun - lots of laughing and sharing.  It is fun when our daughters get together and talk about when they were young.  We must have lived in a fog because I don't recall a lot of that stuff!!!  That's my story and I'm sticking to it!!

Oh Barb, that is a banner day for you! 60 and sunny? wowee. Enjoy it while you can.

I have been quilting, cleaning, even made a trip to Home Depot for a new pool pump. Ours is dead. As soon as DH and SIL finish putting up the new storm door, maybe they will install the new pool pump, so the pool can quit looking like the black lagoon. Swim time is almost here, ya know.

Pacific Northwest finally has sunny and 60 degree weather for Easter!  Hooray!  DD and SIL stopped by for dinner yesterday on their way to the family cabin for a week of relaxation with no kids.  They deserve it!  I will probably spend the day relaxing - not normally in my nature but will try.

Happy Easter morning, Quilty Friends.  Hope your day goes well.  We are enjoying time with family.  We will all go to church, then home for a good ham dinner.  Don't know what we will do this afternoon - play games probably since it is rainy.  They all go back home Monday morning.

I know what you mean Lori - I have sewing I want to do but because I am also a member of 2 quilting groups that make community quilts, I am getting distracted by the group quilts and not getting mine done.

We shifted homes quite a bit as children and not because of work - houses too small and too large? restless mother? We just coped. The worst was shifting after term 1 in my final year of high school. Why, because it also involved shifting schools in the a tough year. I think I spent all year trying to catch up with the curriculum.

I suppose it taught me to be resilient and roll with the punches.

Nearly all are well here - my DD's pregnancy is going fine, my DS is ready for parent-teacher night, my DM has found a new world now she has had a lens transplant in her left eye and is so impressed she is getting the right eye done in 2 weeks. No more cataracts. The only person very, very uncomfortable is my DH - lots of itchy swellings due to insect bites from the garden yesterday - poor guy.

Happy Easter Sunday everyone.

I think I could toss half of my stuff and never need it. We both are pack rats. Drives me nuts, too. My SIL tosses stuff all the time, I wish her brother was more like her sometimes.

You moved a lot more than we did, Lou Ann! THe most often we moved is every four years, then the last ten years were at the same base. We were lucky.

Lori, you sound like my DH.  I am the one who wants to purge, purge, purge.  We have so much stuff we never use.  His excuse is that he may need it!!!  I cn't win!!!

Comment by Lou Ann Brach/MD on April 6, 2012 at 12:35pm

As an army brat and then daughter of a Dr. getting an MA & PhD, I was in 2 schools a year until I reached Jr. High. I know a lot of people had it worse, but my mom was always so upbeat and reminded us of all of the new friends that we would make! The short terms in places continued until I moved to MD, and I have been in the same place now for 18 years. Come to think of it, moving made us purge, and I really need to start on one room, purge, on to the next, purge, etc. However if I did, the next day I would want something that I had already donated. That will be my excuse and I'll stick with it!!!!!

The longest we have lived anywhere is this house, we will be here 15 years in September. That's the Navy life for you.

What will TT2 do now that she is home, Lori? Rest for a while?
