Today is prom day for my laurels. I have been adding sleeves to two of the dress being used tonight. My girls are awesome. They know who they are and what they want and I admire that. They are beautiful and will look beautiful in the dresses that the chose.
I had never added sleeves to a sleeveless dress before so it was definitely interesting. I learned a lot and they were very patient. I finished them this afternoon and they picked them up.
My husband had to work today but stayed to watch the girls so I could get a head start on the dresses. They were great while he was here but it was like a switch...after he left they just wanted so much attention. They finally went down for naps and I am getting some quiet time for myself.
This is also the last week - last day of the semester for me. So I sat down and read the chapter, read the PowerPoint presentation, wrote the journal entry, took the weekly quiz and final exam and finished strong with the self assessment quiz. I am finally done and I have a 93%.
I am so thankful for the opportunity to learn but I am done. I need a break. I am tired of constantly having it hanging over my head each week when I'm trying to do things with my girls.
I love to learn and will continue to learn. Joann's Fabric stores offers classes and I think I'll take the cake decorating classes at some point in the future. I will continue to sew and do alterations and learn that way.
I encourage everyone to learn at least one new thing a month whether its something big or small. It keeps us going. I feel so left out of the world when I stop learning thing.
I hope that everyone had a good week, a great Saturday and a wonderful Sunday tomorrow.
