It’s Friday ladies. (And gentlemen? Do any men read this?) Eric is on-call again this weekend as his partner is (still) in China. It sucks that Eric’s partners are essentially single. I feel like Eric picks up a lot of extra work because we have kids and they know we are usually in town with no big plans. Pisses me off. Actually, Eric has the week of April 15th off, and I guess maybe we are boring, as I can’t think of what we should do. I’m still afraid to fly with the kids, and driving locations from Iowa are somewhat limited. I was thinking Chicago, or Omaha. There must be things to do in both locations for kids. What, I don’t know. But do I want to sit in the car for hours and hours with the girls? Waste half our days while they nap? Struggle to get them to sleep in a strange, different place? Try to find kid-friendly restaurants? Please tell me this gets easier as they get older!!! The thought of traveling with kids overwhelms me.
Last night I decided to get out one of the knitting looms I recently purchased. I watched one YouTube video and also had the instruction guide that came with the loom, it sounded and looked so easy. No. Hell no. Not easy. Disaster. This happened. Maybe knitting isn’t for me.
Thank you to everyone who commented on the photos I recently had taken of my girls. I got a mix of responses, as I expected. Many of you loved the pictures, and I love some of them too, but others saw what I saw, how plain the pictures are compared to my previous photographer’s work. So I emailed my old photographer and asked how soon she has openings, as she recently had a baby. In the meantime, I guess I need to learn how to use Lightroom and Photoshop. I have the software, and I see there are tons of tutorials, but I have no idea where to even start. I’ve tried playing around in Photoshop on my own, but it doesn’t seem very user-friendly for the unexperienced. Any recommendations?
