On the other end--I sent some good mail to my sister and mom this past week and...inspired by Kristi's blog on VT...I am dropping by a bag full of treats to one of my teachees, who happens to also be a good friend. Her husband is away on business this whole week. I know when Craig is gone, it helps to have a little sweet to munch or sip on in an empty house at night.
In other news, I am plotting to paint the baby's room, even though we are only renting this home, I can leave it better--or at least more freshly painted--than I found it. Plus the colors now a way to dreary to welcome any new infant of mine into our home. So, we'll see if energy and time cooperate to make this project happen. I am also hoping to paint the rocking chair in an effort to achieve a distressed white washed look. I am struggling with the sanding part--any advice, all you creative minds?
Got my pink envelope...the anticipation is sweet. Amazed at Kristi's diligence in the whole affair.
I have resigned myself to sticking out this month of night shifts for craig...we nearly fled north (to Provo) to escape both the heat and the headache of "out-of-whack" schedules and that single-mother feeling that was creeping in. Craig and I had a discussion in which we both resolved to try harder to make it work. Because, in the grand scheme of things we need him and he needs us--here, at home (if only for a hot meal once in awhile).
