This past week was the first week all year when I've had a truly busy subbing schedule. Usually I get 4 or 5 days each month; this week I got to work all 5 days and be in 4 different classrooms at 3 different schools. I really did enjoy it, though. Added to that, Sam started driver's ed 2 nights each week for the next 8 weeks. I literally got home from school, threw dinner together, then ran back out to various activities 3 of my 5 evenings. Friday evening when I tried to slow down a little and take some time for me, things got a bit hairy, but I forced myself to enjoy an hour outside the house.
Also this week was a proud mama moment: Nicholas made student of the week. He has been working so hard in all of his classes, but especially math and science. It's so nice that he's being recognized; it's been a long road here at home, that's for sure. Yep, that's my boy!
It literally took me all week to get across town to my LQS, but I finally did yesterday morning. I needed to get the solid (Kona Emerald) for the transition band on my ironing board cover. That should get done early next week. Woohoo! I also picked up a simple small polka dot fabric to make a lanyard to use when I'm subbing.
I spent most of yesterday morning working on some reorganizing in my main bathroom that was long overdue ... now I just need to work on the deep cleaning to go along with that. I recently saw a Pinterest suggestion to use Murphy's Oil Soap on hard water stains on glass ... I'm going to try that and see how it goes. I love my marble-walled, glass enclosed shower, but the hard water here just wreaks havoc.
Finally, I'd like to say a great big THANK YOU to everyone who stopped by and commented on my sweet Swoon Mini. It was a fun project and I'm just trying to figure out where it'll hang now. I'm turning my only leftover block into a mug rug to keep in my lunch bag for days I sub. I'm still trying to respond to all the comments, but I'm woefully behind. I appreciate all the love!
