My fingers are all bruised and bloody and sore. The good news is that I’ve quilted all 50 stars and am assembling the union. The bad news is that I have one long stripe and all the short stripes to quilt still. Luckily they aren’t as labor intensive and nitpicky as the stars were, so they should go a lot faster.

I wonder if the cruise in April is going to happen. I was up every 30 minutes checking the news. Is there anything scarier sounding than an air raid siren? When I was a kid they used to test the local siren monthly and it would never fail to scare the crap out of me. Imagine having one go off 10 times a day, knowing that it could be for real this time, racing to put on your gas mask…

I think I’m going to take a sleeping pill tonight.

    Air raid sirens make me feel lonely and eerie and raise goose bumps on my flesh.
