Articles have been written and submitted (BEFORE THE DEADLINE PASSED! OMG, it's a miracle.)
Quilts have been quilted.
The house has been cleaned and supplies have been purchased. (a family reunion at our house this coming Sunday with 40-50 people expected. Yikes.)
Supplies for my classes in Houston have been ordered and are on their way to me even as we speak.

I've made up a rough outline for my next radio interview. (Sept 19th on AllPeopleQuilt Radio with Pat Sloan!)
In short, I was being a model citizen. Until I found this.

This is The LOL Cam on Facebook. Stay away from it, my friends. Stay away.
