Today definitely wasn't as busy as yesterday! I framed my project and it actually looks pretty good! I wasn't sure about the type of frame that I bought. My daughter liked it and I was hmming and haaing about it. However, it was a nice grain of wood, a decent price – not cheap, but not as pricey as some were, so I thought I'd go for it. I'm glad I did, I think it looks good and I'm my harshest critic!! Hopefully it's appreciated. A lot of work went into it. I'm so glad I finished it before going away, now it won't be bugging me while I'm gone and I won't have to try to finish that and pack at the same time.
My son is still awake. It is late for him and he's waiting on me, so this will be a very short post!! Tomorrow I'm going to start doing laundry for our trip. I'd like to have my son mostly packed and myself packed by Wednesday. Thursday is going to be busy and Friday I have to be at the train station (I just love how that sounds!!!) by 6:30am on Friday (one week from tomorrow!!). I can't believe it's only a week away! I have a lot to do to get ready!! Hopefully I can get organized so that I'm able to finish all that I want to do before we go! This afternoon my daughter and I watched Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them, while I worked
on a pair of denim shorts that I cut last night. I had to go all around the edges and fray them, so that it doesn't look like they were just cut off – and not necessarily the most straight. The fraying makes them look more worn and I just like it better!
Afterwards, I helped my little man go through all his change, from pennies up and count it. He has a whole $23.30. This royally upset my hubby and I! We know he had bills in his piggy bank and there wasn't a single bill to be found! My hubby and I both recall multiple times that we've given him money and he's stuffed it inside his piggy bank!! We think it must have been raided by one of his loving sisters!! You just gotta love kids! We have no idea when it happened…or who to blame, there's a whole lot of denying and "it wasn't me!!" going on!! Sad really, that they'd do that to their little brother. He's only 7 for Pete's sakes!! That's just so mean. I guess he needs a new place to put any cash we give him. Sigh…
After going through his piggy bank, my daughter had a dance rehearsal that my hubby took her to. I went with my oldest and my son and took her to her dr's appointment. She left work early yesterday and didn't go, called in sick, today. Her tummy has been hurting her a lot. Lower tummy, sharp pains! The dr thinks that it's ovarian cysts…again. She had them when she was younger. They have her prescription strength naproxen and she has to set up an appointment for an ultrasound. She also got a dr's note for the time she's missed at work.
After the dr's office we dropped her prescriptions off, got supper at Sobeys, then we picked up her prescription and came home. I made a late supper while they watched Descendants and then we watched the rest while eating supper. We then watched the second one – these aren't new to us, my daughter just loves them and my son really wanted to see the sequel, even though we just watched it on the weekend!! He wasn't there when we watched it. I didn't really mind, because I had a pair of cut-off denim capris that I needed to fray like I did to the shorts, so it gave me something to semi watch as I used the seam-ripper to fray them. After the movie, it was after 11:00, which is why my son was/is awake so late! Good thing it's the summer. A late night here and there won't kill you!! Although, we probably didn't do it on the best day, he has a long day tomorrow, with Friends. They're going to ride the street-car in the city and then they're going to the Mutart Conservatory. I'm sure he's going to have a lot of fun!! So, I should get him into bed now – and myself!! Night All! 💤😴
