I have had two of my grandkids since yesterday. Due to certain family needs, I was asked if I could keep them for another night.
I figured that my husband would grimace, to say the least. And I was pretty sure that the kids would say, "we wanna go home."
So I called DH, with the news, and he said, "That's fine. No problem. OK. Sure."
I went out into the living room, to tell the kids that they were staying another night. I tried to broach it to them gently. Their eyes got big, they they yelled............"YAY!"
So, the message here, is what the heck do I know???
Not much, apparently.
The other day I was searching for empty cardboard spools, to put a towel warp on. Even though I have a lot of them, most of them had thread on them.
Because I have been using up partial spools of rug warp for the last month, I had a bag of those tubes, which I usually throw away.
And I had an idea. Maybe it was time to do some recycling.
So I got a Priority box, the medium size, and used a spool that I had as a template.
I made about 20 of them, and they seem pretty sturdy. I wound a few, and they are as good as the ones I bought. This makes me very happy. I love to repurpose.
Some new chair pads hit the shelves.
And I found a model for a hat fresh off the knitting needles.
She could probably sell you just about anything, ya think?
I am not gonna lie to you, they wear me out. They make a lot of noise. One minute they are playing great together, the next minute it's war. They make incredible messes everywhere, and I am right behind them making them pick up after themselves. I try to balance their time, between playing computer games, playing outside, and amusing themselves, which they actually do quite well.
They are really pretty sweet kids, and I love having them. I don't know how long I will be able to keep up with them, but so far I'm doing OK.
I know too well how quickly they grow up.
I missed a lot with my own kids, working two jobs.
I won't make that mistake again.
Weaving can wait.
I know.........do you believe I said that?
Well, I did. And I mean it.
