It’s been a doozy of a week. My mom was here for the beginning of the week and relax is not in her vocabulary. But that’s a good thing as I needed a good get off the couch kick in the butt. Mom’s are great aren’t they? No, really…she is the best and I have no idea how she new I needed her here, but she knew.
Well my first class teaching didn’t happen. Long story short, the store (that shall remain nameless) where I “teach” is not cooperating and/or communicating with me effectively and refuse to listen to direction, so the people I thought were signed up for my class…weren’t, and the ones that were actually signed up sort of got screwed. I have never apologized for something I wasn’t at fault for so much in my life. But they are all set up to attend next month assuming a few more sign up as well. The good news is, said store is getting a new store manager, and also promoted a new CSM that has been on my side since day one, so hopefully next month it will all turn around and I can start earning some money, rather than spending it on classes that don’t happen. I did some practicing though while preparing for the class [that didn’t happen]. These are the flowers for Course 2 Lesson1.
<p>I took some time off from the Hexagon afghan to work on a baby blanket for a baby shower that I’m supposed to go tomorrow. It started off great until I got a bright idea and changed direction. Note to self: go with your gut and stick to the original plan. I hate the blanket and dread working on it, even though I’m so close to finishing it. It’s safe to say the blanket will not be given as a gift tomorrow. I mean it looks ok at a glance, but the perfectionist in me see’s the added row to make them connect, the square that I connected from the wrong side, and the misalignment of a few smaller squares to the larger square. </p>
<p>Tonight I’m off for some much needed girl time, and then we are headed to hit some garage sales in the morning. 🙂 </p>
