Our store was open and I had to work. That’s the trouble with retail places. No big deal, I didn’t mind. Besides, I got the next holiday off. Yes, that’s right ~ I got the first day of school off!! The kiddos went back to school today, and you can hear the cheering of ecstatic parents resounding throughout the entire Wayne county area!
Yes, it should be a holiday. You see, I have teenagers ~ 3 of them. And lately, I’ve been hearing a LOT of “I’m bored”. Well gee, if I got to sleep in until 10:30 a.m. and then had nothing more to do than just sit around the house and read, play video games, and hang out with my friends, then I’d be pretty bored, too! Yeah right! Seriously though, they are good kids. They do their chores ~ IF I make a list for them. They don’t get into any trouble. But still…..it’s great that they are back to school. This year two of the kiddos are Juniors and the youngest is in the 8th grade.
I’m just putting the finishing touches on the “Grace Jacket” that I’ve been working on. All I have left is to finish up the edging and then it will be ready for Audra (my mannequin) to model for you. I also whipped up a really cute dressy scarf that matches it perfectly. Pictures coming soon! Audra is relieved to come out of semi-retirement. Poor thing has just had to stand around in the corner unused for the past few months since I haven’t made anything that she can model for us. Seems like all I’ve worked on this summer have been my stitching assignments ~ which is fine, don’t get me wrong. I DO get paid for them. And I’ve even had one assignment that was knitting! But it’s nice to have been able to make something that I wanted to make, you know? 😉
