End of the Week Roundup

This week has been a rough one. For the most part, every bad thing that happened would not have been a big deal if it had happened on its own but when it happens along with a bunch of other bad things, it makes for a bad week. It's during weeks like this one where I am reminded of the song "Lonely Day" by System of a Down when the song ends with "Such a lonely day, and it's mine. It's a day I'm glad I survived". I think I can definitely say I survived this week. 

1. Saturday wasn't all bad. It started out rough with my hairdresser cancelling on me because she was sick (understandable!) and the receptionist at her salon not being accommodating to me at all (not understandable). After she felt better my hairdresser called me and squeezed me in next Thursday. Anyway, not the point of this bullet, I also met up with my cousin and we had a crafting day. We decided to try out the arm knit scarf and I think it turned out great!

2. Tuesday a deer hit my car. Well I should say that a man driving in the opposite direction of me hit a deer which then sent the deer into my car. I cried for the deer. I cried for my car which has never been in a major accident in the 8 1/2 years that I've had it. I cried for the shock of it. Then I moved on. Dave, being the awesome husband that he is, picked up the rental for me while I took his truck to school for the evening. I, being the unobservant wife that I always am, crushed the flowers he left in the truck to lift my spirits by throwing my purse on top of them and not realizing they were in the car until I got to school. I'm an ass, I know, thanks.

3. My Quilts by Nicole page hit 200 likes on Thursday (yesterday). I definitely needed a good boost yesterday morning and that did the trick. I was so happy I held a quick one day giveaway and gave a bear away! Speaking of bears, I also finished the She-Ra bear that I shared with you guys last week. 

4. Also occurring on Thursday: Me catching Squish practicing for America's Next Top Model. 

5. I know it's not the "same" but I kinda know what parents are talking about when they talk about how cute their kids are. This is going to be creepy, but I'm okay with that, but I swear my cats are so cute they could be models. Please judge me silently or behind my back. 

That's it for this week, thank God it's over! How did your week turn out? 


  1. Oh my goodness gracious, your cats COULD be models! On my Friday Favorites that I just posted, I have a t-shirt on there I think you'd like too - it says "Cat Hair; Don't Care". I think I must have it.

  2. Glad you got through the week safe and sound. I prefer the song Lovely Day by Bill Withers instead of Lonely Day! Love that scarf! Have a happy weekend.
    Love, SMD's Momma

    1. excellent song Linda! have a great weekend too! :)

  3. Congrats on getting to 200 likes! That's awesome!

    And that scarf looks fantastic!

  4. They could totally be models.

    I hate when a bunch of small-ish stuff coincides to bring about a feeling of general grumpiness/malaise.

  5. Haha, I agree, your cats could be models! Sorry you had a not so great week, I hope your weekend is much better!

  6. Ugh, Nicole I'm so sorry. It must have been scary whn the deer hit your car, and I'm glad you're ok. The car will get fixed. Dave is such a good guy, I'm glad he was there to do the dirty work. I probably would have done the same thing, and squished the flowers. I love your fuzzies, an they absolutely could be models! Way cuter than the cats on the Friskies commercials. Hope this week perks up sweetie. Love ya!

  7. Oh I am so sorry about the deer hitting your car, that must have been so scary!!! I prob would have cried for the deer like you did. I am not even a crier but animals yanno? PS your cats can totally model.
