I was a good girl last night and stuck to my rotation, even though I didn’t want to. I don’t know why I don’t like stitching this piece, but I think it’s because it isn’t going as quickly as I would like it too.
I have a bit more backstitching to do on the left side, then I can finish the blue ribbon on the same side. I imagine that will be the next session’s progress. Then I can move on to the last rose.
Today is my Mira day, so I am looking forward to that.
I got the letter yesterday. The dreaded letter. The letter from Kimber’s school, saying that Lauryn is now old enough to go to school in September. Wah!!!
I was all weepy last night when I read it – my baby will be in school! Yes, it is only kindergarten, and she will only be going every second day, but I will be here all by myself!!! What will I do with myself? Of course, sitting on the couch watching soaps and eating bon bons sounds fantastic, but my rear end might have a few objections!
Going to work is an option (and we could certainly afford for that to happen), but since Lauryn will only be in school every second day, I would still have to pay for daycare on the off days, and that isn’t too appealling, considering the low paying jobs around here. I could pump all my energy into my own business, which, realistically, I should be doing. And I probably will. I just don’t like the idea of my children growing up. Maybe I should have another baby. Gah!
Speaking of my business, I am working my first trade show this weekend. I am nervous – it is one thing going into people’s kitchens and cooking for them – the business is already there. But it is another thing entirely soliciting business and putting myself out like that. Ah well. No pain, no gain.
That’s all for today! Happy blogaversary to me!
