Toothaches and Dentists

The little man developed a little "bubble" on the outside of one of his teeth Thursday evening, and we couldn't get an appointment to take care of it until yesterday morning. I had a feeling it was going to get pulled, and I was right. Poor baby. He was in so much pain yesterday. I kept him home from school and gave him Motrin as often as the medicine would allow me to. We also watched lots of movies and tv. He feels a lot better this morning.

While he rested, I tried to get some things done; but I don't transition well. I kept feeling like I was "on call" and he might need me at any moment. I think he's going to school today so hopefully he will be less bored, and I will be back on my regular schedule. I absolutely love having the kids home, but I like knowing ahead of time so I get all my "chores" done first and can be at their complete disposal.

I have a few shares today. One is a handstitching tutorial on the Create blog. I traced some punched clouds, paper pierced the paper, and then stitched around them. I love how it turned out, and this color scheme is something I wouldn't normally choose but ended up loving. Funny how that works sometimes! You can find the complete directions, additional photos, and the supply list here.

The second share is a layout that went up in the 2Peas Gallery on Monday. I wanted a bright, lively layout about my daughter's upcoming year. It is amazing to me how quickly she is turning into a little woman. I documented some of the events she will have this year. You can find the supply list here at 2Peas.And now I am off to prep for filming with Northridge Publishing. Always a little nerve wracking but good for me to stretch myself a bit from time to time.

    of. I say to you, I certainly get irked whilst folks think about worries that they just don't realize about. You controlled to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the entire thing with no need side-effects , people could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thank you
