Get this, the check engine light came on in our van. Since our only other vehicle is a truck, which only holds 2 people, this is a bit of a problem. This is making me really nervous. Nervous to take it in to get checked--what if I go into labor and the van is in the shop? Nervous to not get it checked--what if it breaks down when I'm on the way to the hospital? AAAAAHHHHH! Sometimes I hate being a grown up. I miss the days when I could let my mom and dad do all my worrying for me. I'll let you know what we end up doing.
Anyway, Davey's last day of preschool is officially Friday--a picnic at a classmate's house who lives out in the sticks. But with our van the way it is, I think we're probably going to miss it. This means I have to get these tote bags to his teachers earlier than anticipated--tomorrow. Lucky for me, Mr. Keith took a nice long nap today and I got them done. Davey helped me pick the fabric last week, and yesterday we went to the store and bought some goodies to put inside--Matchbox cars, circus peanuts and Hershey's kisses. Num!
By the way, the flower on the left is from Blair's tutorial. I had a really hard time making it, I think, partially because of my swollen fingers and partially because of my dull scissors. Anyway, the one on the right was made similarly, but with pinking shears. Instead of cutting all the curves I just did simple circles. Hooray for shortcuts!
