you'll never believe this but...

 Alex lost a SECOND tooth the very next day!!  I didn't even know that one was loose!

We went over to grandma & grandpa's to visit and show off the lost tooth.  After a while, I had to go home to do homework (I actually ended up taking a nap).  Alex stayed behind to visit and watch grandpa's enormous television.  Then, they called and said that he'd lost a second tooth!  What a big surprise, lol.  

The tooth fairy is officially broke.

It's the little things...

This has been a particularly difficult parenting week, complete with evaluations, behavior incidents reports, and having to address a certain unnamed teenager's inappropriate use of the internet and facebook.  So I was really happy to receive this news: Alex's tooth fell out yesterday!  Clearly, he's very excited.  Tonight it goes under the pillow so the Tooth Fairy can come.

In other news, it's finals time again.  You know the drill (and you also know that this is why I'm writing a post, lol).  I have one more seminar tonight and then I'll be working on my projects and reading as little of the assigned reading as possible.  I'm going to be finishing the entralac shawl for the shop, and then start plugging away on the backlog of repair and custom work that I've accumulated this winter.  All those funds will go in the official business account and maybe I'll even be able to get my ipad when I'm done!  And you know what that means?... Credit card acceptance at fiber festivals :)  Big steps for my little fledgling business.

The case of the missing mock-ups, lol

My lovely and ever-patient graphic artist, Emily, sent me an email on my birthday telling me that she would have some mock-ups ready for my approval.  I remember being very excited about it.  Then my life went off the rails and I forgot all about it...for almost 6 weeks.  I won't sit here and lie to you, and say that this has never happened before.  She sent me something once before that I forgot all about until she followed up with me 3 weeks later.  I wouldn't have even remembered the cards if she didn't follow up at the end of another email chain, (where we discuss the mock-ups of my pattern layout...which is awesome, by the way!).  I was given a few options for how to work with the layouts but I'm too fried to even know what the heck she's talking about right now, lol.  I'll have to look at it again after some caffeine and a good nights sleep.

So, the moral of this story?  That college and work and kids and other various and assorted responsibilities have finally caught up with me.  That if it weren't for spell check, I'd look like an uneducated idiot (we won't even go into which words I spelled incorrectly, and not because of type-o's).  That I have way too much on my plate right now and things are starting to slip through the cracks.  That even though I only have 12 weeks of school left, I seriously want to throw my hands up and scream "I'm done!", or go off and cry, or first one and then the other.  That I feel like I'm missing what's left of Alex's baby-ness and he's going to be too big to pick up or to sit on the couch and watch cartoons with before I even know what's hit me, and my homework is robbing me of what little time I have left.  And that Emily (my talented and understanding graphic artist) deserves a better client, and a more attentive and less distracted one, or at very least a pair of hand-knit socks!
