A Few Moments of Peace

Yesterday Spenser was sick. Sawyer took three 10-minute naps the entire day. During "nap" #2, I made some hot chocolate for Mason and myself. I was almost able to drink the entire mug before the baby woke up. I had to gulp the rest, knowing if I didn't drink it then, it wouldn't happen at all. It was one of my most peaceful moments of the whole day.

Then I decided to work on the zippered pouches for the nursing home. I popped Sawyer in his Exersacuer next to my sewing machine and chatted to him as he talked back. This was zippered pouch #1. What was I thinking?!? I sewed the lining to the wrong side of the zipper! I tried to rip out the seams, but there were a lot. So I tossed it aside and started to work on the others. I made three more and they turned out right. I still have more to sew.

And this morning -- I think I'm feeling sick.

I think it's funny that you goofed on the pouch. I can't tell you how many times I've made similar boo boos. I'm glad I'm not the only one!!
I hope you're feeling better soon!!

Is it a cold? If it is, try cold-eze. They really do help I think.

If I had six kids, I'd be sitting in a puddle of dirty laundry trembling, not finding ways to sew little pouches. ;) You're amazing!

Really, feel better soon.

Don't you hate it when you make silly mistakes. I sure have had my share. Hope you feel better

you CAN'T get sick, your the mama!

yeah, i'm rather terrified of starting my zipper pouches. luckily, i have ironing and patchworking to do first. whew.

and hey, have you tried some EmergenC? it's this orange flavored fizzy drink. each serving has something like 1000 times you daily allotment of vitamen c. when i feel like i'm starting to get sick i drink about five glasses a day (you mix it with half a cup of warm tap water, and i like an extra teaspoon of sugar). i swear by the stuff.

Oh, honey. Be good to yourself and feel better. I hope Spencer is feeling better today. At least not puking for mommy!

Oh no!!! The mama can NOT get sick. Dont you know this rule. The whole house will fall apart at the seams. I hope you are feeling better soon. And I sewed a zipper on the wrong side last week, but it was on the dog bed, so it stayed that way, he, he.

The fact that you're tending to two kids while managing to sew zippered pouches and take a moment for yourself with a hot chocolate makes me 100% impressed.

Take some airborne and revel in your fabulousness.
