Latest sewing project

Here's my latest sewing project. A gal friend at work wanted me to make her a bag like mine. She picked out the fabrics and here's the "finished" project. (I need to shorten the strap a little but that's going to have to wait until after Mason's party.)

In other news, please see Jon's blog to see a picture of his girlfriend. Rumor has it that they will becoming to GR for a wedding. Of course, Jon is worried that we'll all scare her away so he's keeping the family meeting to a minimal. I am a little saddened that he's calling Stephen to meet her over me... but I'll just expect a super cool Christmas gift to make up for it. =)

Also, I started the night shift last night. It seemed to go alright and we'll see how tonight goes. I'm hoping that I can sneak in another nap today but for some reason my body just doesn't want to go back to sleep. Lunch then nap. That's the goal for the rest of the afternoon. It's good to have goals.

Colby's First Day

Colby had her first day of preschool!

I told her that it was time for me to go and she started to get teary eyed and.... well.... I started crying. I kept thinking that it's my second kid, it's supposed to get easier! Apparently not. A hug later I was walking out with parents giving me empathic looks. Colby did ok and her teacher managed to distract her. She brought her to the "good-bye" window so she could wave to me one more time. Later when I went to pick her up I was concerned because parents were already coming out with their kids. I thought for sure that she was in there crying because mommy wasn't there and everyone else's mom was there. However, I found her sitting at the table coloring and she didn't even notice me! When she did finally see me I got a "hey mom. I need to finish coloring." And she did. In the end, I think the whole event was much more traumatic for me than her.
