Two of my boys started getting sick on Friday. Saturday morning, Kyler was sick as well. By Saturday evening, I also had a sore throat and cough. We’ve been battling fevers and sore throats, coughing and yucky noses all weekend. Today, we missed church which really bums me out (probably some other people too, since I was supposed to help out with the preschool desk). I always feel like I miss out on a lot when I’m not there and missing AWANA is not fun for the kiddos. The boys already seem to be feeling some better and I hope that I do by tomorrow! I know in reality we don’t miss that much when we aren’t at our usual places, but it still stinks to miss things.
During these sick days, when I didn’t feel like doing anything else, but had to be awake, I was able to complete a couple of projects. Friday, I made a notebook cover for my sister. A belated birthday gift; her birthday was January 25th and I didn’t get it done in time. Story of my life lately! Anyway, I hope she loves it. I want to make another just like it for myself, but I say that about everything, I guess. Definitely digging the ruffle. I wanted to put her name on it too, but I couldn’t figure out a way to make it look nice with the pattern and the two Fs were giving me trouble right next to each other. Fabric is My Paris by Timeless Treasures.
Today I managed to whip out this ds game folder of my own design. We just can’t seem to keep up with ds games in our house, so Kody proposed a library check-out system. I thought a fun place to keep all of them would be nice, so I drew a picture and made some measurements and got to work. There are 4 rows of 4 slots on each side, so it will hold 32 games. Unfortunately, a couple of the slots are a bit tight and a few are a bit loose, because I don’t measure perfectly, but they are all usable. I used a bit of 1/4 inch elastic and a big button for the closure. I just grabbed a couple of pretty fabrics out of my stash. Actually all 4 fabrics in these two projects are purchases from my January trip to Hancock’s. Love their remnant table!
Have any of you tried the new Peach Mango Kool Aid? I’m trying to decide whether I like it or whether it tastes like Albuterol syrup… Verdict is still out.
Enjoy the rest of your Sunday. If you need me I’ll be coughing and sneezing while I clean up the house. No real sick days for mommies.
