I worked on those slippers for more than a few hours yesterday. I think it's going well, but it's not done. I will have plenty of time to continue working on them because....
Rob just got home from his overnight shift, and told me that the ONLY day next week that he does not work a 12 is Tuesday, when he works an 8 hour shift. He has no days off. At all. Until Thanksgiving. And he doesn't even know for sure that he has that day off. Have I mentioned that his father is coming into down for the Holiday? And that Thursday morning we are going to my dad's for the big meal for lunch, and then trying to get to his sisters for dessert after their big meal dinner? Fun fact, my father lives half an hour EAST of us, and his sister lives 20 minutes WEST of us, and in between that, we have to drop the kiddo off at his moms which is 30 minutes NORTH of us so that he can eat a big meal with her, and then pick him up on the way home from Rob's sister. And then his extended family is going to come to town on Saturday - a ton of aunts and uncles and cousins and such? So yea, he really sorta needs that weekend off.
The silver lining of all this working...well, the TWO silver linings are: a) I'm doing a bang up job of being a stepmom. b) this is gonna be amazing for giftmas money. On the other hand, we have no idea what the kiddo WANTS for giftmas. Last year was easy, he got a Wii. He got a 3DS for his birthday this summer. So what's left, as far as "the big present"?
Okay, so my very awesome blog post for the day was me bitching. Trust me, I held back. It could have been much worse. Sorry.
