Started this morning off by dropping the kids at school. Our 4 year old
has been sick for two days with a cough and now a fever. I'm glad it's Friday,
I've been thinking about all the things that I need to get done during this
weekend. Good thing the kids are old enough to help me with chores and
other things that I need help with. I've been wanting to go coupon shopping
to stock up on things we will need before this next snow storm comes in and
will wait until the kids get off school, so they can stay with Jr. so I can run
and get some cereal, shelf stable milk and canned goods, to tide us over
for another month or so.
The last winter storm we had was right before winter break and it happened
two days before it started and the kids were stuck at school until 8 pm and
didn't get home until almost 10 pm. I had left at 3 to pick them up and ended
up stuck in traffic until 8 pm and had to phone my husband to pick them up
since I was like a mile or two from the school and traffic wasn't budging.
hubby got there and was told that they had gotten a ride back home with the
vice principal and another member of the staff. I was worried because the
last address they had for us was the motel not too far from the school and
they would now find out that we were at a motel 8 miles away from them.
They were very understanding and let the kids attend school, since they are
always on time and doing well in school. So I am very grateful for those
Getting back to sewing has been on my mind all morning, since Nesi said,
she needs a new outfit for their choir concert at school coming up. I've
been stocking up on patterns and materials, but still have to gather up the
courage to sew something. The last time I sewed her something was a
nightgown in 2012 and she loved it so much. I'm thinking maybe a simple
skirt pattern will do and we could just buy the top to go with it. Just trying
to save money here and there.
