Well my day started well enough, got up at 6:30 and watched the news, relaxing with my 7 year old snuggling with me. Having 1 more week of school, my schedule will be changing, but I am looking forward to being able to snuggle more!! Also will give me more blocks of time to knit, there will be swim team practice, playtime at the park and fountain while they run around, and some more time on the weekends hopefully. I have a couple of projects that I would love to start plus my prayer shawl ministry projects.
Racing at this moment to finish up a baby cardigan for my son's teacher, working on a sample for a friends yarn shop, and starting to think about the prayer squares I need to make for my prayer shawl ministry. I still need to send out an email to the group to alert them to start making the squares so that we can have the 100 or so needed for July!! Anyone who wants to help us make these items or prayer shawls, just email me with prayer shawl in the subject and I will get back with you.
Life is good right now. My 5 year old daughter decided to have a fit at preschool just now because she did not say goodbye to a friend. She screamed that she did not open her car door and just was so broken that in my rage I finally saw through that she needed a nap!! Funny how I have been able to stop myself now and take control so that I can take control of the situation. Before I would have just blown up and we both would need a time out, but somehow I am able to muster myself to be calm and deal. Did a bible study about just this thing, "scream-free parenting" and it really has made a huge difference in my life. My DD is happily sleeping right now while I type, I get to watch Days of our Lives and relax. Need a snack and a BIG mug of tea and then I think back to knitting. Maybe some Wizzards 101 later with my son and grilled chicken, veggies and rice for dinner. I even have some Free Rita's Ice coupons, so maybe we can do that for dessert since we will not be going to swim team tonight.
Signing off for now!! Hope you continue to follow me and if you have any creative ideas about what I should write about, just let me know!!
Go with God!!
My thoughts about life, family and knitting. I am a knitter of over 30 years, just starting to spread my wings on designing my own items. I knit for fun, for my prayer shawl ministry at Sugarloaf UMC, and for my sanity. This blog will chronical my life and what is happening day by day. Grab a cup of tea and enjoy my short rants.
