It’s MOMtor Monday! I’m over at Mothering From Scratch today sharing my thoughts on Laurie Wallin’s new book, Your Weirdness Is Wonderful and why the book was pretty much written just for me.
(To catch you up on my ever fascinating life… My in laws left last Wednesday from their unexpected visit. By Wednesday night, I knew I was sick. I spent Thursday and Friday in bed listening to my kids destroy the house in a spring-break driven haze of Legos and video games and potato chips.
Yes, my MOMtor post is an accurate reflection of what really happens in our bedroom several nights a week. That’s just how we roll. The fact that he slept on the couch twice last week had nothing to do with our “discussion” OR his mom’s visit. It was entirely based on my cold.
This morning the kids went back to school. The rains last night seem to have washed away much of the pollen that has fallen over the past week. It was bad – yellow drifts of the stuff were everywhere. I’m left trying to catch up on laundry, restock the pantry, and corral all the minifigs back into the play room.
Remember two weeks ago when I confessed I was having crafting urges again? Right after I posted the pants of shame, I went and dug out the sewing machine again. I started AND finished a quilted table runner. It’s sitting on my kitchen table right this very minute. I pieced it together, quilted it, and put a binding around the edge. Just… don’t look too close. It came out better than the pants of shame or the now-famous zipper catastrophe, but that still leaves a lot of room for improvement.
I *might* have thrown the “table quilt” in my husband’s lap yesterday as proof that I actually DO finish things. He may or may not have responded appropriately.)
If that last little bit puzzles you, you obviously didn’t go read my post over at Mothering From Scratch. Go… now. I’ll wait.
Now it all makes sense, right?
