Got my Swaperoo package in the mail! I'm pretty happy with how things turned out. :) I hope Melonie is too!

Oh man, my eyes were crossing today from all the MATH! The text-book I've been helping to convert to Braille is statistics & I proctored & scribed an algebra test today.

I was running late this morning & left my bottles of pills on the bed & I dunno if I didn't close the one or if the cats just managed to get it open anyways (they have in the past with a different type of child-proof bottle!)but there were pills all over the place & I'm pretty sure I had more than 5 left, but that's all I've found so far. I haven't gotten in all the folds of the blankets yet b/c I've been nursing.
So, I've been meaning to showcase more of my crafts here. Some of my most recent stuff will have to wait until I've sent it to my swap partner. :) Managing my pictures should be much easier once I get my new laptop Paul has promised to get with our tax refund. :) Here's one of my projects I've most recently listed for sale at my Etsy shop. The inside says "Congrats!" and I also have a girl one for sale. I have some others I've been meaning to list, some left-handed Thank-You cards, a Thinking-of-You card & more.
I've been craft-hopping a lot lately. Right before Amber was born I was making a lot of jewelry; since then I've been scrapbooking, card-making & sewing a lot. I've made her two dresses & a few headbands. Well, she's being a fuss-butt, so I better get going. Plus, I found 8 more pills, but can't find the cap!

One of my coworkers announced today that she's expecting. She wasn't expecting to be expecting... this will be baby #3. #2 came as a surprise close on the heels of #1, so birth control isn't too effective for her! She's happy though & past the point that they're really worried about miscarriage from the birth control. I'm kinda excited, another pregnancy in the office right after mine!
I'm looking forward to getting back to the classes. My students keep telling me how much they miss me. They're really sweet. :) I'm kinda liking having this transition period of office work though. Already my to-do list is getting crazy. My boss & I talked yesterday about sending out these letters that we're to follow-up on next week, but put my other projects as priority... ? I'm not sure how to accomplish that, I think I'll just have to take a break from the E-text projects to craft these letters & forms. but I still don't have access to the shared network drive! I got an e-mail today about it, so hopefully it'll be fixed tomorrow. I'm still going to have an access issue, but that's because above mentioned co-worker, for some odd reason, is the only one who can log into this particular program & she'll be out of town tomorrow.
I got my sneak peek on the swap blog! :) It's something fabric-y in teal with an image of flip-flops amongst other indecipherable images on it. That sentence structure was weird, bu I don't want to fix it. I'm up past my bedtime! ;) & just got Amber back to sleep. G'night!
Just kidding. Well, I should go to sleep, but I wanted to share... so much cuteness! Not only Amber in her little pajamas still sucking her lip after I took the nipple away, but also our cat Leela snuggling my husband's knee!
I forgot to swaddle Amber, so this will be an experiment to see how she sleeps un-swaddled. Not very scientific though, we changed another factor & put up light & draft-blocking curtains in her room tonight. She's been sleeping in the swing b/c of her cold. I'd rather have her upright than flat in the cradle. Plus, the cradle gets kinda chilly for some reason.
Now both kitties have Paul! Aw. OK, G'night for real now!

Monday Monday

I caught Amber's cold & I think Paul did too. If she has felt half as bad as I do now, I'm surprised by how happy & content she's been most of the time! I feel rather miserable & it seems like it shouldn't be that bad. It's just congestion, no fever, though now it's the sore throat & lack of appetite that can come from all the drainage too. Bleh. That, and Amber slept all night, about 9hrs actually, so I feel like I shouldn't be so groggy.

I don't want to miss more work. I already missed a day in my first week & still had to pay for the full week of daycare. I really wish they didn't do that. That's why people bring their sick kids in. We can't afford to pay the "tuition" AND miss work!

I hope my accesses & stuff at work are all working as they ought to. It's been so annoying. Friday, they had my e-mail working (though I lost all my archived items, contact lists, etc) and the shared network drive with all the DSS (Disability Support Services) stuff was there, but I got denied if I tried to open the folder inside it. When I first went back, my personal network drive had been wiped too, but that was the first thing they restored. :) I just hope the shared drive works. I can hardly do anything without it & constantly have to have my co-workers logging in for me.

Sorry for the whiny post. I hate being sick! I was doing so good too!
