I was all excited to do some sewing now that I have overcome my fear of the machine. Unfortunately, the idiot machine has decided that it doesn't want to work properly. I am not sure what is wrong, but am searching the troubleshooting guides. What a pain!
Little Sprout is being really cute today. She is dancing around the house, and other than pulling all of her books out of the bookshelf and throwing them on the floor she hasn't really made too much of a mess. I am excited that I won't have to be horribly embarrassed when MIL comes over to watch the sprouts tonight.
I may be giving my first crochet lesson to the Sarge tonight. I have been putzing away on my many projects while at work, and she has decided that it looks like fun. I am a self-taught crocheter, so it will be funny to see how difficult it is to explain to someone else how to do it. I will be bringing some good instructional materials so that she can look at the pictures if I get to hard to understand. :)
Big Sprout has been busy planning her birthday, which is coming up at the end of the month. I am feeling guilty, since I just don't want to plan and take care of a party for her. I don't have weekends off, so her dream party of a super-involved sleepover just doesn't seem possible. Somehow or other, when I said "We'll see" she heard "why, of course, dear, I would love to spend hundreds of dollars and countless hours setting up, having, and cleaning up your birthday party!". And here I was hoping for something simple like we did last year: Chuck E. Cheese and one friend. That was so much easier!!!!
