Hurricane Ike

If you were wondering. We were affected by hurricane Ike. We had no power for five days. But as far as that goes, we were lucky. Since it's been about 10 days so far for some members of our ward and also some of Greg's coworkers.
Our water also stayed on. We were drinking stored water, but we could still flush.
We also had a miraculous cold front that came in on Sunday night as it was heating up in our apartment. It stayed through friday and our power had come on wednesday night.
This last Saturday we went to the ward building to clean up. There were a lot of trees down and some debris for us to clean up. We cleaned up there and then moved on to help some ward members at their homes. When we got home, around noon, we were exhausted. But glad that we were back in the ac.
Later that night we went and played games about an hour away with a boardgaming group. There was a german themed pot-luck and then we played games until like 12:30 and then made our way home.
We had 8 am church and somehow our alarms didn't go off as planned. Fortunately, we woke up and got ready in a hurry, to be on time for me to play the prelude music.

Today I finished my quilt. The edges are bound and I stuck my name on it. So that's it.
My mom asked me what I will do next. Any suggestions?

More quilt

Don't look too closely at the stitching on the back. But still, I have accomplished much. I now have to bind the edges and that's it. Hooray!

Labor Day

Ok. We didn't really do anything. But Greg finished "Breaking Dawn" and I finished the border of my quilt, so we did accomplish something. I will post new pictures of my quilt soon. Maybe. I just have to do it.
I was helping one of the little girls, I nanny for do her homework and she was trying to describe herself. She asked me if she should write that she was bad. I thought that was pretty funny that she would want to put that, but I told her she probably shouldn't. Then she said, instead, she'd write that she was good and asked if that was better. (I could say nothing to this.)So she wrote it down. Then she erased it and said she better not put that because one of the rules of her classroom was to be honest. Ha ha.
Hopefully hurricane Gustav stays way the heck away from us.
