We are gearing up for big changes around here. Del is to go to Iraq for 90 days in January, when that happens we will give up this wretched apartment and head for Phoenix with my parents so we can be with my sister-in-law Kelly and my niece and nephew while my brother Gabriel is in Korea and Del is in Iraq. When he comes back we will either buy a house ourselves or with my parents, if their house has sold by then (please God, send a buyer). Big changes. Oh and Rachel is potty trained.
So, in anticipation of these changes I am going to get on the Christmas gifts; I don't know how long I'm going to have my sewing machine on hand. I resewed (is that a real word???) my nightgown. I worked very hard on it and its better than what it used to be. It fits a lot better than before but I think it's ugly. It's the fabric. I need a solid color and a more light-weight fabric. It's cozy though and that's all that counts. If it was just a skirt or a shirt I think the fabric would work better. I am feeling like a mad scientist trying to come up with a secret santa gift. Picture me rubbing my hands together with a sinister grin on my face. Hee hee hee.
