Friday! The Man has to attend a conference all weekend, so it will just be me and the fur babies. We'll try to stay out of trouble.
I have a lot I should get done this weekend. But I have to admit that with the dark shadow of a possible government shut-down looming, all I want to do is curl up on the couch and watch movies that make me cry. Since we are awaiting immigration approval from the US side, a shutdown would put delay our process. USCIS and other government workers would not be processing paperwork for our I600 or the visa. To be so close...I can't think of it. You can read more about how a shutdown would affect the international adoption scene HERE.
Trying to stay positive. Think happy thoughts.
So I'll try to stay busy. On my weekend agenda is--more painting. Ugh. Just two last coats to get the kitchen cabinets finished, and then we can reassemble the whole lot. Yay! Looking forward to crossing another project off the list. And having the utensils back in the kitchen.
I'm also heading to Drawstring Studio, a fun modern fabric store. She sells a lot on Etsy but also has a cute brick and mortar shop. I'm hunting for material to try and tackle THIS crib skirt. (Yes Mom, I'm going to a fabric store to search for material to sew with!) I really don't have the time to make the skirt, but haven't found one that I like at all. This may or may not (most likely not) get completed before Little Man comes home, but who knows??
And of course, I will be sleeping in every morning this weekend. A must. Have I told you how much of a sleeper I am? I can easily snooze until 10 or 11 just like a teenager. I never seem to have outgrown that. Getting up at 8 a.m. for work is still a challenge for me. I know, I know. This will change. But until it does...sleep!
