Hello, hello! I have not been the best blogger this week, have I? My boys are out of school for a long weekend. I took the three youngest to my parent’s house on Wednesday and we got back last night. I took my laptop with me, totally planning on posting from there. Obviously I did not. As we were driving home, all the sudden I realized that I had left my computer at my parents’ house. UTTER PANIC! I am very proud to let you know that I did not swear in front of my children. I only swore in my head. 😉
We turned around and went back. Thankfully we were only 10 minutes out and hadn’t entered the freeway yet. So glad I remembered before we got home an hour later. I would have cried. A lot.
Before we left on Wednesday, I finished up the vinyl lettering sign for my living room. Sort of. It took me forever to design it because I have to try out ninety three fonts before I finally choose the ones I want. I cut it and adhered it to the glass. I wanted a splash of color, so I wrapped some organza around the frame and tied a knot in it.
And when I hung it on the wall, I noticed something. Something not good. Do you see it?
The letters totally lean down to the right. How the heck did I do that? Aaaaargggg! I wonder how long I can leave it like that before someone notices? The busy mother in me says “It’s good enough.” The perfectionist in me says “How can you sleep at night when you have a crooked sign hanging in your living room?”
Which voice would you listen to?
