Well, the company left this morning, the house is cleaned up, and Brian is asleep on the couch after taking 3 Nyquil (he is very sick.) Back to the real world for this gal.
I had a wonderful visit with my parents (and I am not just saying that because they read the blog. Although, I probably wouldn't tell you if I didn't have a good visit. But in this case, I did. I promise!) It seemed SO short! This was mostly a business trip for my Dad, so they were only here for a short time. Sigh. It was lovely.
(Warming up to Grandpa right away!)
- Learning to sew. Well, kind of. I really really suck. It reminded me of learning to drive all over again, with my mother telling me how hopeless I was as I careened all over the road-or in this case, fabric. But, at least she didn't beat my shoulder, pull my hair, or frantically grab the wheel...so...I am a success! I made a couple of cool-ish things. More on that later. (and you have to promise to not look too closely at the seams!!!)
- My mom sewing some curtains to hang in the windows beside our front door, so we could take down the GHETTO wrapping paper we had hanging there instead. Much classier. Why did I make her sew it? Please refer to number one. (Thanks Mom! I love them! And I can BARELY tell that one is longer than the other!...hahaha...)
- Joseph receiving, and LOVING his first Birthday present, from Grandma and Grandpa. The train moves, lights up, plays music, and, unbeknownst to all of us until this afternoon, pinches little fingers in the wheels! Sad. But, as you can see, he REALLY REALLY loves it! (Thanks Auntie Christin for the socks in these pictures! I am so relieved that his outfits will finally fully coordinate. Sadly, I am being serious.)
- Getting to show off Joseph and his tricks, my flowers (before they were brutally killed! More on that later as well.), and all of my fall decorations to my parents!
The blog will be back to business as usually as well- I am sure that you have all been white-knuckling it through the weekend!!
