Today is the Day!

My baby's comin' home!

Tuesday (after my little rant and whine) I got a call from the hospital.
My sewing buddy was just getting out of surgery.  Everything went fine.
Yesterday the surgeon let me know my Janome was out of recovery and ready to come home.

Unfortunately, I didn't have a free moment to go pick her up.
Kids dropped off to school.
Kid up and schooled.
Hubby lunched.
More school.
Drop one kid off for his class, pick up two more from school, pick up other kid.

Run to the bank for hubby dear.
Afternoon snacks.
Working on science poster for C-man.
Working on Integrity essay for Bean.
"Mom, there's paper I need to pick up and have signed so I can go to the dance Saturday.", says Jon.

Yes.  It's time.  His first formal.  A Sweetheart Dance with a friend from another school and did you know that if you're not a student from this school, attending a dance, you have to go through Security?
A paper signed by your school's principal to say you are who you say you are and probably won't cause trouble?

And an evening schmoozing and oozing all of Javi's accomplishments for a scholarship application.  If he can win this one, combined with the Presidential Scholarship, his entire college career is paid for.  How awesome would that be as a way to celebrate all of his hard work and diligence through high school!

Dinner for me and the kids.
Dinner for the bring home the bacon hubby.
Videos of AFV and one episode of "The Unit".
Bedtime for all.

Sew, by the time my day was done, the hospital was closed and my baby had to spend another night away from home.  Today is the day!

This means I can work on my New York Beauty block.
And I simply must make a trip to my NSLQS for fabric to make either this

or this.  Not sure which one I like better and I need to choose between Amy Butler "Love" fabric or Kaffe Fassett fabrics.  Our LQS and anyone else for about 45 minutes worth of driving has everything but these two favorites of my Pillow Talk bud.

Work has progressed on the hexes and it is now much larger than mere pillow size!  LOL 
This thing is taking on a life of its own:

which is exactly what I need!


  1. YAY! I am so excited that your baby is coming home Dee! You are one super busy woman, how do you do it all? and you raise great kids?!! you are super woman!
