On the road again.....

I am missing my sewing room....I am missing my 15 year old.....and yes, I miss my DH...

I am at my oldest daughters this week, helping with the baby, and 2 siblings. Abigail is 12 days old, Grace is 6 and Jackson 5. I am not used to this....

This morning I had to set my alarm for 6:30am so I could get showered and dressed before the kids got up for school. At 7am, I woke up the kids and got them going. They dress themselves, but I made breakfast and then shoved them into daughters car to take them to school. Grace had the directions, although she reads some, she can't read her mothers writing which she calls "Chinese Writing". LOL I only had remember 3 directions but to keep Grace busy in the back, I had her read them to me.

Grace -"Ok, this mom doesn't write very goodly. It says 1, St, L and it has a circle."
Me - Ok, the L with the circle, means I turn Left.
Grace - Which way is that?
Jackson - in a small voice "my window"
Me - That's right Jackson.
Jackson - no, that's left
Me - Yes, that is CORRECT it is left
jackson - you said right.
Me - I meant correct
Jackson - then why didn't you say so.
(now, he wasn't being sassy, he was muttering under his breath, like "whats the big deal, just get us to school")
Grace - Ok, now it says 2 SL right with a cirlce. Oh that means right, but I don't even know what 2 SL means.
Me - 2 SL means 2 Stop Lights.
Grace - Then why didn't mommy right that? (this IS a sassy voice)
Me - Ok, whats next
Grace - 2 SS and then Left
Me - Ok..
Me - Here we are. who has the door code?
Grace - It's in the car, with my backpack....

Oh, how do all you mothers do it?? Of course, most of you are my daughters age, but really....I am exhausted.

I am looking forward to Thursday, when their daddy is home all day. I am going to head out to the quilt stores in town and see about buying some goodies....

Happy Sewing,
