Quilt With Us

I went out for coffee with my DD this morning at the Borders Book store. It's half way between where she works and goes to college at.  Being that we are both getting over the flu, things went as well as could be expected.  We decided to wander around the store for a while talking about things we keep forgetting to mention to each other. I've added her to my insurance at work so that she will have medical insurance now until she turns 26. Then she slaps me in the face with, "Mom, I'll be 26 in May!"  I'm standing there in the middle of the sifi/horror section of all places when she tells me this. I still don't think it's true but then we all remember when they were born yesterday.  So to get over that depressing news that I'll be paying for insurance that she only has use of for a month and a  few days, I decided to go next door to the LQS store and ease my pains. 

Slap in the face #2. The store is closing. Yep I couldn't believe it. The company has other stores to the north of my location but I'm not willing to fight the traffic to get there.  That leaves me with Joanns and mail order.  We have two other quilt stores but I refuse to go there.  I wanted to return a brand new pair of broken sissors to one of them and they refused to replace them, ok they lost my business.  The other, a lady insisted that I put on gloves when I entered the store. I'm sorry but if you think that way about your merchandise or that little of me, they lost my business as well.

So what's a girl to do now???

Ok so I went shopping on line like I always do. 

I hope everyones having a better day.

Sweetie, I know the feeling about your babies growing up and not even realizing it. I still think of mine s when they were 8 and 6 years old. They are now 26 and 24 now and I just don't know how that happened. I hate that your LQS is closing. I am so afraid that mine will too eventually. I try to give the owner as much support as I can but can't do it on my own even though I am sure my DH thinks I do!! Hang in there, tomorrow will be a better day!

A Yorkie??  I have three! The lady would probably have a heart attack on the spot.  lol

Put on gloves!?! You have to be kidding!!!!  Our LQS is dog friendly! Yes, at least 3 times I've arrived there to find somebody with a smaller dog in tow.  So if you want to give that lady a heart attack show up at her door with a Yorkie!

I know what you mean.....my "baby" will turn 35 in April!  I tell him I have to start lying about HIS age!  To bad about your favorite quilt store closing.  Is your Borders closing too?  The owner of the other remaining quilt store requires one to wear gloves?????  I've never heard of such a thing.  I wouldn't go there either!

And adult children can even purchase their own individual health policies (always could) if they want and even pay for it themselves. LOL! 

So a girl should do this now - Maybe just start your own LQS or little book store because it appears there is a need - maybe even employ DD to pay for her own health insurance policy!  Now that could work!

You will all be happy to know that I made myself some choclate chip cookies, and I ate them with the herd.  I didn't even give the dd any.  Not that I wouldn't have, but in her state of flu and strep throat I don't think they would have stayed down and I sure didn't wanna clean what comes back up.

My oldest daugher is 33 today and I can't believe it.  I think we should both do double chocolate today!

I agree with BJ: 2 traumas in one day=chocolate.

Make sure she use the insurance to it's fullest while she can, she may not get insurance with her next job. I guess I wouldn't go to a shop that required gloves either.

Oh, my, how weird that you were told to put on gloves when you entered a quilt store!  The other day I read on another forum where this woman went in to her LQS & was told they charge a fee to help customers choose fabrics.  Gee, I wonder what they thought they were in business for?
