what a week


Goodness, it’s been a while since I’ve checked in here. It’s just been one of those weeks. I am sure you all know how it goes.

You see, Laura’s been waking up around 4 a.m. (This morning was a good morning — 4:45.) So by the time most people are getting on with their mornings, I myself am already dragging. Then, over the weekend I got sick. Sunday I felt miserable and Drew ended up taking all three kids out to lunch just so I could get a little rest.

Jake had a Webelos/Boy Scouts sleepover from Friday to Saturday, and soon after that he was complaining of a sore throat. Sure enough, when I took him to the doctor’s yesterday, we learned that he has strep throat (which I suspected). So he’s home again today, just to be on the safe side.

I don’t even know where the time has gone this week. I still have to transfer over a bunch of files to my new-to-me laptop and update my iTunes and all that good stuff. When my last one broke, it had been not long after I imported a number of my CDs (no music zumba dancers listen to or anything too crazy — just a bunch of old 90s indie rock).

What else… I have done a little bit of crafting this week. I made a couple hair bows for Laura and a bow display (super easy DIY and I hope to write up the tutorial for next week). I also restyled an old pullover into a cardigan. It was my first time sewing with a stretchy knit and it was not as scary as I thought it would be. The sweater was too big for me as a pullover, but works well enough for an around-the-house cardigan. (I’m always chilly!)

And then I’ve just been working on my baby bunny sets — another reason I haven’t been blogging. I’ve been trying to dedicate my free time to working on these instead of playing around online. Hopefully I’ll finish up soon because I have a ton of projects I would like to get started on!
