As usual in my life...it has been a crazy week. Birthdays, Potential Lay-Offs, tonsilitis...you get the picture! ;0)
The icing on the cake was that yesterday my 13 year old comes home and says that he needs to do a report on a French speaking country and sew it's flag. No Problem, I say we can make a little flag out of left over felt. No...that would be too easy! It needs to be a BIG flag, a 2 feet by 3 feet flag. So I am in JoAnn's at 8:45 pm buying yards of felt and all the women in line look at me and say.."Last minute project one of your kids forgot to mention?" It was hilarious. We were all in there scrambling to get materials for projects due the next morning. And of course, when I pull out my sewing machine someone has removed the power cord and foot pedal and no matter how hard we search it is no where to be found. So at 9:30pm I begin to hand sew a 2x3 foot multi-colored flag. (At least it was for Monaco which is basically a big red stripe and a big white strip sown together.) My Name is Earl, The Office, the 2hr Grey's Anatomy, and last night's Grey's Anatomy later, it was ready to go! :0)
So in honor of my crazy and hectic life I am throwing a contest. Comment with your crazy last minute or total comedy of errors story and I will have my sons pick 2 names and send out something yarny and fabulous to the winners! It doesn't have to involve kids, it can be about pets or just anything that is frustrating and funny at the same time.
Let's keep the contest open until Tues, 5/15/07.
