I Can't Sleep!!!

I give up!! Tonight, I took a shower, snuggled into bed with a good book, turned off the lights when I got tired, and . . . stared at the dark ceiling for a couple of hours! WHY!!? I guess that things could be worse. At least I have many blogs to browse . . . kind of like Smart Mama says, "24 hour access for your 1 a.m. cravings"!

I am so happy that tomorrow is Friday. I look forward to a weekend of rest, you know, in between the family Easter obligations! :) This week has just been so busy for me. I have been spending most of my time at the preschool where I am making "Memory Books" (yearbooks) for many of the students. The end of the year is almost here and I find that I am short a few pictures.

I was happy to come home today to find a package from Tee! It made my day. I would post the contents but Sterling has advised me not to as they are "imported" from Mexico. Nothing bad though!! :) Thanks Tee!

In other news, Myles continues to feed himself at every meal. I finally gave in today and let him have another go at the spoon. I guess that there is just no getting around the mess. He seemed to do pretty well with it though!

You'll have to excuse the "girly" bib! No, I am not trying to change the fact that I have only boys!! :)

I also had the chance to go to the fabric store a couple of days ago. I only had 30 minutes but I enjoyed them all thoroughly!! Myles was there and he helped me pick out this fabric for a project. Now I just need to find the time to do it!


I wanted to add this final picture because it just makes me smile!! I woke up the other day and went into the kitchen to find this on my counter.



I am not quite sure if it is a self portrait of Asher- but I don't want to ask him because I would hate to offend him! Whatever it is, it just makes me happy to look at. I wonder if this is how Asher sees himself. I was just so impressed with the detail and care that he put into creating this little piece of artwork for me. I love it.

Well, I guess that I should try to go to sleep . . . or I could watch Oprah on PVR . . . humm, decisions decisions. Well, I know that I will be paying for it tomorrow. Until then, good night!!

*Right after I finished writing this post, Asher came down stairs to show me how his eyes were "glued" shut . . . he had pink eye!! So, I guess that it was good I was awake! :)*

I am sorry about the sleep deprivation. It is so hard to sleep when you are pregnant. I loved the fabric. I have nothing blue and red at my house, so it is always fun to see "boy" fabric.

Cute yogurt eating pic. LOL. My kids are yogurt freaks.

Glad you got the package safe and sound! :D Everyone is probably wondering what the heck it is! LOL. Should we tell them it's a rare Mexican Chinchilla? ROFL. ;)

That art project is fantastic! Definitly one to frame... And I love buying fabric - except I can't really sew. LOL. So many fun possibilities though.

Yuck for the pink eye!
