Don't you hate it when you realize that you're totally insane?
I've discovered that when I'm worried about either of my children, I don't panic, but instead I become totally obsessed with whatever is going on. And the internet feeds my obsession, because I spend enormous amounts of time online, going from website to website, trying to discern what's crap and what's factual.
I get myself in such a tizzy. I didn't get dressed till almost 3PM on Monday. That's a LONG time to sit around in your pajamas. I hardly eat, let alone cook. My poor family has had to deal with meals of leftover pizza and cold sandwiches this week. We've been out of milk constantly, and yesterday I even ran out of coffee. That never happens in my house.
Seriously. It's like I-Just-Can't-Let-Go. I worry about stuff long after my kids have stopped worrying about it.
So today, I feel like I'm finally coming out of the woods. I have some very smart and very generous bloggy friends, who listened to me kvetch and whine for well over a week and have given me wonderful advice and shoulders to cry on. You girls know who you are, and I won't say who you are here because then a million other parents of college-bound kids may start emailing you, and let's face it, I'm selfish. I'm keeping you to myself.
And I promise you all - I won't be blabbering on about colleges any more until it's all said and done and the deposit check has been mailed.
WELL, as for stitching, I took out Tree of Life last week. Here it is after I pressed it again:
After I pressed it, I decided to put it on scroll bars, and I accomplished that, but I don't think I've put more than 100 stitches into it over the past week. Really, there was no point to taking another picture.
John had a track meet very close to here at California University, so Colleen and I went to watch him run. This time he ran the 10K event. Yes. 10K on a track. That's 25 laps. This was taken in the early part of the 10K. He didn't look like this at the end....
Now I'm off to work. Maybe even some stitching later? That would be nice.
