Where did the week go?! Hmm? Anybody?!
#1 We have a slight scheduling conflict at our house today! Andrew is in middle school and they get out at 2:15, Luke is in elementary and they get out at 3:45. Usually it works just fine, Andrew and I head to school to pick up Luke about 3:20. Well, Andrew wants to stay after school to watch a teacher vs. middle school team basketball game. Sounds like fun, right? Well, it ends at 3:30. Which just creates a real problem at our house! :) If I wait until 3:40 to go to the school to get Luke, I will wait in line at least 45 minutes and he will be the last child picked up and he will be furious! (trust me, I know!) If I pick Andrew up early at 3:20, then he misses most of the game and he will be furious!!
The middle school is only about a mile from our house, and I might have considered letting Andrew walk home... IF we hadn't just had an ARMED HOME BREAK-IN directly across our street this Wed! So that's out of the option...
So Luke has the perfect solution: "Hey Mom! You could just come early and sit in the car pick up line and be the first one to get me." (this will mean a 45 minute wait for ME!) Luke continues on with his solution:"You could bring your cross-stitch....it IS what you do best!"
Should I be offended? LOL
#2 I can't find anything to stitch! I have a million choices... but nothing was feeling right this week! I finally decided to stitch a nativity pattern by Erica Michaels that I've sort of been wanting to stitch. Actually, when I bought it, I wasn't even sure I liked it! But I was afraid if I didn't buy it..I'd want it really bad and not be able to find it! So I started it... and I do like it! But then I went to CVS and bought two chocolate heart boxes and so I really wanted to start that candybox pattern from the old cross-stitch magazine! So now I have two new WIP's to add to the ever growing pile!
#3 And I finally ordered the fabric for Flower Power and am anxiously waiting for that to come, so I can get started on the big Flower Power. And that's probably how my problem with #2 started!
#4 I started my Friendship Sampler RR...finally! I'm the grand leader of this thing, and I think I was the last to get started! We mail the end of this month, so about time!
#5 I'm going to our church tonight to help the youth babysit for the adults that are watching a movie: Fireproof (?-I think) Mike (DH) and Luke will stay home and do something because according to Andrew it is WAY too embarrassing to have your entire family show up to a youth event! Do ya think he remembers what his Dad does for a job??! (works with youth all summer, for those who don't know!) I told Andrew the other day, that I realize we've reached the point where I embarrass my kid..but to rest assured he had embarrassed me a million times! He said to tell him five times: Hmm.. I couldn't think of any! Guess that was Luke! Course I didn't tell him that!
I'll take pictures soon.. promise! Have a great weekend! This is our one and only weekend where something isn't planned through the end of May!!
