While my sweater dress is drying/blocking…
And while dispensing sound advice:
Me: did Sarah call you last night?
MS: nope. I’m not that surprised. I’ve decided to embrace rejection and the absurdity of dating.
MS: but I think I’m just going to send her a text message for myself really. Something like
Me: don’t do it!
MS: it’s ok if you’re not interested, I thought there might be something there. I’m just a fan of old-fashioned clarification.
Me: don’t do it!
MS: why not?
Me: let it go.
MS: you don’t think she’d reply to a text like that?
Me: hell no dude! I wouldn’t. Dude. Seriously. Don’t do it.
While working on my socks…
And while dreaming of the french toast PT and I made Sunday for dinner:
I got to thinking that I needed to repair my quilt.
My mom made me this quilt when I was in middle school, and I still use it. I love it! You can see at the top where it has been repaired before, and you can see where it needs repairing again.
That kitty is nearly completely ripped off! So I called my mom and got a quick quilt patching lesson. I have never quilted before, but my mom is amazing and has made every blanket in my house. I counted five in total, including this one that my mom made for an exboyfriend:
Luckily she snagged it after they broke up. My parents have been married for 26 years, so this quilt is pretty old. Ironically, I’m going to patch this one up and send it over to PT’s house! I hope it isn’t cursed.
You can see exactly which fabrics didn’t age well. Entire sections of this enormous quilt are disinigrated and in need of some serious help.
It is kind of funny that my mom made this quilt for her exboyfriend, then gave it to me and I’m patching it up and, well, not exactly giving it to PT but lending it to him. Worse case senario, PT and I break up and I’m giving this quilt to the daughter I have with the next boy I date, so this is a win win.
(Side Note: Mama PT is coming to town and demanding that PT get a new blanket for his bed before she stays there. I can’t blame her! That thing is gross, but I demanded he buy sheets, so I already exasted all demanding in the bed clothes area. Instead of him buying some stupid store bought blanket I’ll hate he can just take this one, making Mama PT AND me happy. Well, hopefully.)
Wish me luck! I don’t think it is possible for me to make them any worse, so I’m not too worried about it.
I am worried, however, about MS.
MS: she set up a date for Sunday and then didn’t answer. I feel like I’m entitled to an explanation.
Me: no you aren’t! she blew you off and that happened and she is flakey and move on. it sucks, but it happens and you shouldn’t do anything about it. If she can just ignore your call she can ignore your text and probably will, and then you are right where you are now anyway
MS: sure but if she doesn’t reply to a well thought out text, then I really won’t want anything to do with her.
Me: she didn’t CALL YOU BACK after you had set up a date. Red flag! You shouldn’t want anything to do with her now.
MS: I shouldn’t but does it really matter? can you tell me if you think the text message itself is dumb? It seems like its exactly what I want to say
Me: That’s not the point! The point is YOU SHOULDN’T SEND IT
MS: I get your point, I just don’t know if I’m going to not text her.
