Friday yet?

How is everybody today? I know for a fact that I feel sleepy, tired and anxious. I am not really sure if I like Mondays; Although sometimes I feel very excited to get back to work on a Monday. Typically that happens when I get all weekend chores like laudry, cooking, cleaning, grocery etc done by Sunday evening, pack lunches for Monday, get all home work and other school related stuff for AN ready, get to watch Desperate Housewives Sunday night, get a good night's sleep etc. Around 50% of these things did not happen this weekend, including the good night sleep part. Hence the crankiness. On a lighter note, it was my birthday on Sunday, no, not the regular calendar day birthday, the Lunar Calendar birthday. SN gifted me with a necklace set, totally unexpected. Thinking of that makes me smile now, I might just forget that I am cranky. No, I am not a material girl, but what girl doesn't like occassional display of love in the form of jewelry from her husband.

OK, but I have a really good project in the works.

It's the Simplicity 2320 Project Runway dress for BN. Not sure if I like the elastic wrist style. I am just going to make the 3/4 sleeve version. I cut up the pattern pieces, cut out fabric from my stash for a trial run, pre-washed and dried the fabric I am going to use for this project (I am planning to make two of these dresses, one in silk, one in cotton). I tried making pleats last night which did not go so well. Any tips?

Oh, also Walmart and Staples released their black friday ads. Couldn't find anything worth being pushed to the ground, having to drive around for 20 minutes trying to find a parking spot so on and so forth.

Have a happy Monday!
