...was an odd sort of day. I woke up in a not great mood and going to work did nothing to help the situation as I had to deal with with one issue or another when it seemed very self-explanitory. Needless to say I was glad to get home and even happier that the week is more than half over.

When I got home we had yet another quilt piece, but this time it's from someone very unexpected. It is from Jenn, Michelle's sister-in-law! I was so touched that she thought of us and took the time and effort to make a quilt piece for the baby. I am constantly amazed at the generosity of everyone we've come in contact with during this crazy journey. The piece is an adorable piece with littl e bunnies, hearts, stars and a whole bunch of other things.

Today as well, I went on my eliptical trainer. It was the first time in over two months since my mom passed away. I only went on it for 20 minutes but it was a start. I hope to be able to get back into it again. I know it's what she would've wanted.

That is a pretty cute square! How thoughtful of her to send one to you. :)
Hope your end of the week goes better than today. Two more days, sweet girl!

Dolores good for you getting on your eliptical trainer. I would love to get one of those however you know who (Kaileigh) would probably be on it night and day.

What a sweet person Jenn is to have thought of you and send a square. It's people like her that truly make this a wonderful world to live in.

I am glad you got the piece from Jenn. I think she is pretty special too!!

Glad to hear you are on the eliptical - personally I HATE them, but good for you.

I hope the week gets better for you.

Sounds like you're having one of my weeks! Hope the end of the week gets MUCH better!

Love all the squares. It is such a wonderful feeling to see them all waiting for you after a long day at work.

Hang in there!

Getting quilt squares is always such a pick-me-up. Funny how such a little thing can make you smile. Hope you have a much better weekend than week!
