Happy family birthday to me. Emily and her man made breakfast for me today.
I almost forgot about it as I was taking grands to karate party and kid's craft day at Michael's.
How could I??
Homemade scones, Gingerbread pancakes from Trader Joe's, Irish sausages...etc.
and family love..
At Michaels, the kids painted paper...at home, we cut it into snowflakes with Accuquilt Go cutter..
The kids made presents for their mother at the kid's craft day...once home, they wrapped them in fabric from my scrap bucket..They had a great time...Now, too their Mommy will have scraps to sew with.
.I was trying to finish up last minute pillowcases and needed a red bobbin...they were tangled..
I got crabby.
Evan took scissors and cut off the thread....He said..Grandma..don't you know that bobbins do not untangle when they are like that....9 years old knows lots.
Winding bobbins for his own new bobbin holder from Grandma.
Evan organized the sewing drawer for me.
He stayed up late doing sewing things with me that the other two are too small for.
It was nice. I wish I could be a better grandma, instead of such a witch at times..eg..do not talk back, you are in time out...listen to me...OMG...I am exhausted.
I want to be a sweet grandma..not a hag.
And I am exhausted all the time even with tons of help.
Himself seems stable today..although he has not been out of bed for a few days. The suction machine broke. Brian super-glued it back together as the Mr.O cannot be without it...New one coming tomorrow.
I wish I had a calm and easy going personality like my Mr. Wonderful.
Too late now...you saw the candles on the birthday cake...old old old dogs do not learn new tricks or evidently have the energy that young dogs do.
.I would like more energy from Santa..but last year I asked to be 45 again...and oh, no..I did not get it.
This year I am thinking that I will just be grateful for what I have.
