Ripped from today’s headlines:

The highly respected Las Vegas school teacher known to the blogging world as Quilldancer has once again been forced to concede that there are only 48 hours in one weekend. Of those 48 hours only two still remain. Quilldancer plans to spend them sleeping.

As the Witness Team Chair, Quilldancer spent approximately 9 hours in church this weekend for Revival. She spent another 2 hours in church attending (most of) her last Lay Leadership class. She also spent 2 hours reading the textbook she forgot to take to her Lay Leadership class.

Because she is a dedicated 5th grade teacher Quilldancer spent approximately 15 hours in her classroom this weekend creating bulletin board displays and hot glueing paper and fabric to her classroom walls (if she ever finishes maybe she will take a couple of pictures to share with you).

Because she has far too much to do, Quilldancer has taken very little time to sleep, however she did enjoy a full 5 hours of rest from Midnight to 5:00 a.m. on Saturday and another luxurious six hours of repose Saturday night/Sunday morning.

The remainder of Quilldancer’s time was twittered away on general hygiene things, including a haircut; driving from place to place; eating; and — in tiny measure — commenting on the blogs of her treasured friends.

The next time Quilldancer agrees to chair a committee and take a ministry class at the same time on the weekend before school starts she hopes one of her friends will twap her upside the head. Hard.

This report was prepared for you by me, Quilldancer’s zombie double. Though not as eloquent as the original Quilldancer, I believe I am much better looking.

Quilly is the pseudonym of Charlene L. Amsden, who lives on The Big Island in Hawaii. When she is not hanging out with Amoeba, she is likely teaching or sewing. Or she could be cooking, taking photographs, or even writing. But if she's not doing any of that, she's probably on Facebook or tinkering with her blog.


  1. I hope you enjoy your 2 hours of sleep.

    I loved your comment on my blog! LMBO @”Now every tech challenged idiot in the world can have a blog” you are a riot!!!

    Hope you have a great week.

  2. oops!
    Looks like someone has been having her hands full on the weekends!
    Just to rub it in..i had a completely relaxed and lazy weekend..with loads of sleep, watching TV and eating;-)!

  3. Gosh, you sound like a reporter. I so identify with reporters having been one myself…zombie, I like you. But I want my Quilly back.

  4. Sweet dreams quilldancer! restore yourself, you need energy to give away. You are needed! Have the best of days. love from the east coast…

  5. I want to know just how does one TWAP someone upside the head, whether it be hard or soft?
    Poor girl, you had quite a rough weekend. Rest up!

  6. Just say no. This is from someone who also could use this advice. Please get some rest efore you confront the new class.

  7. Hey Quilly- hope you get some rest before you have to meet that classroom full of kids. I also hope they don’t act like the ones I have to haul home sometimes on Thursday afternoons. I want to know- what do the teachers feed them before they let them out the doors to go home? Whatever it is, it ought to be illegal, lol…
