"I Don't Like My Teacher Because She Has a Funny Voice"

That was my 3 year old's reasoning this morning as I dropped her off at preschool for her 4th day. She really tries not to go every morning; she only goes on Tuesday and Thursday. "Mommy, I will miss you", "My teacher is mean because she makes me rest my eyes", whatever she thinks will get me to keep her home.

I am not sure what is going on, typically she is a very social person and loves to play. Dh and I have talked and decided it could be a number of factors from there being so many children, to her not being used to a schedule. Whatever it is, it just needs to stop. I really need her to go to school. As I am getting rounder and rounder, and more tired I need these two days to let my body rest. As she gets older, she needs more socializing, and gets bored with me during the day.

I will give it until July, and then I suppose we need to reevaluate what is working and what is not.

Closet Woes

So, I just went through my "closet". I put closet in quotes because A: its the size of a very small kitchen pantry, maybe two feet wide and two feet deep; and B: because it has become the "quick-throw-it-in-and-slam-the-door-before-it-spills" space for all things sewing, crafting, and other that has been banished from my life for now.

Anyhoodle, I found that I have a little over 20 different types of fabric in varies amounts of yardage waiting for me to sew something up. Problem is, that all these fabrics were bought with the intentions of sewing actual clothing items; PJ's, trousers, blankets, shawls, etc., so not the cute fabrics used to make needle rolls and tote bags like I had planned for my etsy. Blaahhh.

For now though, my Brother sewing machine has tension issues and I guess it needs a massage as bad as my preggo back. Sad thing is, chances are, I will be massaging its tension before more achy back gets some relief!
