lessons learned

My husband comes home from Afghanistan is just a few short days! YAY! I've learned a few things during his little trip away.

1. Winning things makes me happy!! (thanks Fabricworm! Now I can make a tree skirt or stockings!)

2. Buying fabric makes me happy! (IKEA finds. The green will be made into pillows and the tan will back my Notion or Two quilt!) (there's probably more new fabric to be shown, I've had a lot of fabric therapy....)

3. Sewing projects keep me busy so it's almost like I don't know he's gone. (not really, I'm totally in denial with this one.)

Wonderland by Momo - side A

4. Staying busy going, going, going keeps me from getting too lonely, BUT the aftermath (tired kids, messes everywhere, lack of sleep) is definitely catching up to me.

side B

5. Staying up too late blogging and facebooking makes me feel a little too attached to my internet connection. Then I start worrying that I might miss something if I'm NOT up late blogging and facebooking. And maybe I inadvertantly sign up on twitter as paisleygarden, even though I barely have a clue how that all works.

love this interior fabric - such a sweet little print!

5. That absence really does make the heart grow fonder. I'm one lucky girl.

Congrats on winning fabric, so pretty! And HUGE congrats on the man coming home, he looks like a really nice, fun guy and we sure do appreciate him. (I'm assuming he's in the service, I'm new here!)

You and the kids are going to be SO happy to have him home. I'm happy for you.

Adorable last picture!!! You two look so happy. And don't feel bad that you don't really understand twitter. I don't even know what the heck it is or why I would want it. :)

Besides the coming home part yet, you listed pretty much all what happens here, too.

It's good to read your husband is back home safely. Enjoy it.
