I was able to work on my Faery Tales from Haed. This design is 49 pages and I am on page 3. It was a pretty rough week for stitching. I had parent teacher conferences on Tuesday. I have fifty plus students in my room and only three parents showed up! That is about 6%...how sad is that????
|Progress as of 4-5-12|
Mark and my new bed finally came in and it is heavenly!!! A new bed means more money spent. At school, we have compared it to the book "If you give a Mouse a Cookie".
|New bed with the new comforter!!!!|
When we bought the bed, Mark was sweet and ordered me a king size wool padding that goes under the sheets.....It is so soft you just sink into it!
When you buy a new bed that is a different size, you have to buy new sheets:
You also have to buy new King Size Pillow Cases....
We also had to buy a new area rug because we forgot that Brigen ate two holes in the carpet!
After all that shopping, we finally called an electrician because when we tried to turn on the light switch or the ceiling fan, the switch would pop and crackle!!! This had been going on for a while and I finally got tired of it!! It seems that our house was not up to code!!!!!! To make things worse...our House inspector missed it seven years ago. The box had been wired wrong so after some rewiring, new smoke defenders, and surge protectors throughout the whole house we can now use our fan and light in the bedroom!!!! We do not even want to talk about that bill!!! The electrician said if we had a house fire, insurance wouldn't have covered it since the house wasn't up to code. So it is a good thing I called!!!!!
