As I said yesterday, I decided not to put Jamie into childcare this week. It would have only taken a push or a shove from another child to inadvertantly opened up all those stitches in his belly button (well, I'm assuming that's where they are, lol. I can't actually see because of the bandaging.)
So, we've been chilling at home yesterday and today. I took two days of carer's leave from work. Woohoo. What a lady of leisure I am. I am shocked actually at how relaxing it is, to be a total SAHM. I have so much more time to do things!! Wow.
It's been lovely actually to have these two days to relax. I have been working flat out in the evenings on scrapbooking projects and I have been quite tired. Well, I guess that the stress of the anticipation of Jamie's surgery at the start of the week had something to do with it also. As did my tenants deciding to be complete a*&^%les the day after the operation, when I was already feeling frazzled. But, hey, you get that. I'm bouncing back people! My batteries are feeling recharged.
And it helps that my scrapbooking projects are coming along nicely. I am three quarters of the way through the artwork for an article in Scrapbooking Memories. I have done my Masters challenge for this month and it's all ready to be sent off. I have done a couple of projects for Scrapware's new release at SIA in a few weeks time, and have ideas for a few more, time permitting. I am up-to-date with all my Shop and Crop assignments. Hell, I may even get my artists' trading cards done for the S&C retreat! Yay me. Go! Go! Go!
I am going to go make a cup of coffee and snuggle up on the couch with Jamie to watch the end of Madagascar.
I took some photos yesterday, so if I get a chance to download them, I'll come back and post some. Back soon.
