Unemployment

Well, today is my first day returning to my former life of a stay-at-home-mom...so far so good. I jumped right back in with both feet. Started the day with an early morning trip to the orthodontist with Emma, she is now sporting an expander. Braces to follow in a month. Went food shopping. Lulu is entertaining her classmate, they just finished the "playdate" lunch of grilled cheese, sliced apples, and hot chocolate. And are already eyeing up the ooey, gooey, peanut buttery, chocoatechipy deliciousness sitting on the counter. There has been laundry washed and folded. Appointments scheduled. And LOTS AND LOTS of list making! Soon I am going to fire up the vacuum. I'd say I am off to a good start. MBM's office drapery is finished and ready to be installed...he has been on conference calls ALL morning, so, I wait, with my drill in hand. In the mean time I made him a pillow. I used the fabric from the draperies...added a flat welt around the pillow and a monogram and VIOLA! Almost finished his office!

Great first day! And how jealous am I that you can monogram at home?! I simply must get on purchasing an embroidery machine.
