and some days I accomplish very little

Actually, that should read "most days." I haven't slept well since Tuesday on account of doing battle with a water bug Tuesday night that left me with the heebie jeebies. The battle took place in my bedroom, which means I can't sleep in there ever again. So Tuesday night I stayed up until dawn waiting for round two and watching Battlestar Galactica DVDs. I thought I must have dozed a bit during the night, but when I went back to re-watch the DVDs for the parts I missed, I hadn't missed anything. I fully intended to sleep in my room Wednesday, but I just couldn't. I curled up on the sofa again. Fortunately, my hair held up and looked okay on Thursday. On Thursday night, I said, "enough is enough" and slept in my room. Or should I say, I lay in my bed all night staring into the darkness and thinking of bugs I could not see. I dozed off at some point but woke late on Friday leaving me very groggy at work for the third consecutive day. Needless to say, I was highly unproductive, which means only one thing--Weekend Work!

I was supposed to get things done around the house today so I could spend tomorrow at the office doing all the things I didn't get done over the past three sleep-deprived days. My body, however, said, "Hey lady! You need to sleep." And so I did. A lot. I managed to get out of bed before Noon (not much before, but still) and did a few necessary chores before I ended up on the sofa with four more discs of Battlestar Galactica and a bowl of Honey Graham Ohs! (The exclamation point is there's, not mine. They're good, but not exclamation point good.) So, I will have to do laundry tomorrow either on my way to or from the office, which I must visit because someone is using our conference room on Monday and the point person has given me absolutely no direction. I'm hoping an email came in late Friday so I can have things set up for them without having to scramble last minute. Oh, and there's filing to do.

But wait! I did manage to do something of worth today--I finished the mystery project I posted on Thursdays. It's a Pop Tart Cellphone Case. I made a button hole, but haven't found the perfect button for it yet. In the meantime, I will try not to turn it upside down so my phone won't slip out. I found a pattern for this, but the sizing wasn't quite right for my phone and I wanted to add the button hole and all. I kind of winged it but I think it turned out okay. So, I give a nod to the original pattern writer (I can't find the pattern anymore, so I can't give credit) and tell you, um, knit until it fits your phone, then seam it.

Update--The lovely MonkeyGrrrrrl (aka Denise) found the pattern.

You can come over and go through my button box if you like.

Totally cute poptart!

What's a waterbug? A cockroach? Sounds like it's time to spring clean. Bust out the vacuum and that sucker will run for cover. If that doesn't work set the gnome on him!

Ahhh... Looks much more like a pop tart, much less like a band-aid (excuse me for using the ® trademarked names!) Oh, and to give credit where due, http://bittersweetblog.wordpress.com/2007/05/07/putting-the-art-back-in-pop-tarts/ - for anyone who was thinking "Hey, I need a Pop Tart Cell Cozy!!"
