Projects Update

Last night, Phil and I ordered delicious burgers and a huge mound of fries from a place in Athens called The Burger Joint. I ate my burger in about five minutes, then spent about 17 hours trying to find a comfortable way to digest it. There is no room in my abdomen. When Phil found me and my stomach ache at 6am, he lovingly laughed his head off at my misfortune. I should have given up gluttony for Lent.

I'm not sure if the burger's actually left my stomach yet. It was wedged in there pretty good. It's probably going to sit until late April, and come shooting out with everything else. Sorry for that imagery. I didn't get much sleep.

Surprisingly, today was not a bust. I accomplished something huge. Specifically, I finally checked off everything on my To Do list. You might remember the list. It's the one I started in December.

The To Do list is Tah-Done!
I'm not going to tell you what I just barely completed today to finish off the list. Okay, fine, I will. It was the bedroom floors. That's right, I hadn't cleaned the bedroom floors for two months. I wouldn't say the floors had accumulated dust bunnies during that time. They were more like dust tumbleweeds. Like, giant, rolling clouds of dust piles.

I'll take the weekend to celebrate this accomplishment, and then start back in on another list, because keeping this apartment clean is a battle I can't win. If you come to visit us, though, it will look effortlessly spotless. I'm just that good. Or I hired someone.

Here's an update on my fun, secret projects:


Wall Decorations for the Kid:

Phase 1

Phase 2

Phase 3


Phase 6,000

Phase 10,092

Phase Who Even Cares at This Point?!

I don't really know how many phases I've been through with this project, and I have no idea where it will end. It may never end. I think I may be stuck doing this for the rest of my life. Send help. 


Cards:

You saw part of my 2016 birthday cards in the last projects post, but it's been a while since I've designed other cards. Maybe I'll get back into it, and actually start selling them this time. Anyone interested in buying?


Decided to keep my kid gift thank you cards on theme. 

Crochet
I finally received my giant box of yarn in the mail. Here's some of it.


Bella worships it, as she should.

I tried some new granny square designs. I love the ones on the left. The others are...fine.

These are some baby hats I crocheted in preparation for another idea that I had. I don't know if I'll actually end up executing the idea. I'm purposefully being vague about it to preserve the surprise, in case I do decide to pull the trigger on this fun, cool, cryptic idea. Also, it's funny to be vague, because I know and you don't.
The hat on the left wasn't going to have a yellow stripe, but I realized that it kind of looked like a breast. Phil assured me that, yes, it definitely did look like a breast. Even with the yellow, it's the only thing I can see now. 

Tell me you're proud of me. I'm a Millennial. I require praise.
