Four nights off. I was scheduled for 4 nights off. Count 'em: Tues, Wed, Thurs, Fri. In a row. Yippee!! I had so many plans to get "stuff" done. Work in the yard for an amazing couple of sunny days, sew, air out the house, and go to Biltmore Gardens with a friend.

Then I changed it. Oh, well.

My little trainee, the one who calls me Momma? Well, her REAL Momma is flying in from the Phillipines today and "Debbie" was scheduled to work tonight. So we swapped shifts, and she will work for me Sunday night. At least it breaks up my 3 shifts in a row! So, although I hate having only one night off, because it really does a number on my sleep pattern, I have a solution: I will come home on Sunday morning, sleep all day, stay up all night, sleep all day Monday and work Monday night.

Now, what can I do with Sunday night? I will SEW! And watch what I want on TV. To be fair, J-Man always says, "If there's something you want to watch, just let me know and I'll turn this off." But I figure there's enough else around the house to do that I can't just SIT AND WATCH TV. So I putter and catch bits of programs and occasionally "rest" and watch a movie. (Who am I fooling?)

Judy L. is hosting another quiltathon on her site, and though I can't participate for all of it, I can be the P.S. to the day.
So I will post photos if I can, and catch up on "Medium" and whatever sappy movie is on Lifetime and not clean because I don't want to make a bunch of noise and wake J-Man up. Of course.

Okay, maybe I'll mop the kitchen floor. And fold laundry. But that's ALL!

Oh, and yes, I got to the Biltmore gardens yesterday, but I'll post about that later.

Have a nice weekend, everybody!

P.S. That new photo on my header was taken at Biltmore.

Isn't Biltmore amazing! Can't wait to see more pictures. I'll be looking for you in the quilt-a-thon on Sunday. I love that you will be the P.S. I'm sure Judy would appreciate that!

have fun!

I turned down overtime tonight as it would interfere with a) sleep before THE TRIP and b) break up a 3 day stretch that I really really really need as I haven't had 2 consecutive nights off in over a week!

Oh boy - those sappy Lifetime movies are the best for stitching quietly *s*
