A Mother's Joy

My 7 year old came home from school today and found the drunkard's path blocks I had sewn laying on the floor.  I had them arranged with the 7 inch and 3 1/2 inch blocks together since they fit so nicely and he asks if he can arrange them.  Of course!  Please ignore the laundry that needs folding and the papers that need grading.  Those things can wait!  There is a quilt to be made :)

This might even be better than a video game.  You actually get something in the end.  Who knows, he might just end up a famous quilt designer one day.  Or, he might get tired of it and go back to playing video games, but I took a picture to show his future wife and to make me smile.

I thought I was doing really good today.  I didn't take any pain medication all day and I didn't take a nap and I went to the store and bought envelopes for my sub to use for class tomorrow (science fair--wee) and then I went to my daughter's tennis match.  I thought it started at 3 and they hadn't started at 3:45 and I was about to die.  I can't bend over very far just yet because I can still feel the stitches in there and things are poking me and my son comes out after school (the older one) and says he lost a bracelet on the football field, so I walked out to help him look (cuz there are big scary football players out there practicing, and we couldn't find it, and by this time I'm about to die!

I am so not ready to go back to work!  Good thing I have at least 4 more days off.  Another full week if I need it.  Whatever is poking me from the inside needs to go away so I can actually walk without feeling like I am dying would be nice :)  But, the kids miss me and I miss them too.  All in good time.

Re-cu-per-a-ting. That is what you are supposed to be doing. This is why I wanted you at my house... sitting at home playing with fabric is one thing. Searching for a lost bracelet in the middle of a football field in 95 degree heat is quite another....
