This first week back at school is kind of kicking my butt and I have a big test today, so I thought that today would be the perfect opportunity to recap y reading week/procrastinate my final studying minutes.
I finally got a chance to catch up on rest, which was so needed since before Christmas. Then, somewhat predictably, I got sick. Or rather my brother got sick and then my whole family got sick. I feel kind of bad because I had by far the mildest case of my whole family and only felt bad for three days. It was a strange kind of cold with thankfully no terrible hacking cough or sore throat, but painful sinuses and my head just felt so cloudy and tired.
Getting sick for sure put a damper on my week off, but I was determined to still make the best of it. I did less schoolwork than I should have, but more of everything else. I read a book, which was excellent. I was scheduled to work four days and picked up an extra shift and then an extra hour and a half at the end of another shift.
I didn’t make as much progress as I would have liked to at cleaning my room, but I am happy for the progress that I did make.
I baked my beloved sugar cookies. It felt so good to finally be able to cross that off my list. And they were delicious. I didn’t actually sew a single stitch, but what I did do was lots of cutting. I am trying to use up the fabric that I bought over a year ago to sew my fabric pouches with. It was only a bunch of fat quarters to start with, and with the pieces I used on the pouches gone, there isn’t that much left, but I really want to use it all up before I start working on my new fabric.
I had to get a bit creative with what to make with small pieces of fabric. I have lots of things ready to sew now with the pieces all but out. My hope is that on future weekends if I only have an hour of sewing time, I will have an easy project that I can make a lot of headway on in that time rather than worrying about washing, ironing, cutting, etc.
I watched hours and hours of the Olympics and spent time with my family as well. I am happy to report that I actually went back to school feeling rejuvenated, although a lot of that is gone by now!
