Last night was a test in patience. This is the second night in a row Mini hasn't slept well, and when he doesn't, I don't either. For most of the day I've been fighting yawns, and trying to keep awake.
Oldest wanted me to drop him off at the library today, so we went to town first thing. I had to buy milk and coffee creamer anyway. I also dropped by the hardware store and picked up cable ties so I could put a cabbage patch head back on it's body. That probably sounds creepy to anyone not into dolls. LOL!
Just last night I finished up a doll reroot project that I've been meaning to do for about three years now. I already had the girl's hair plucked and ready to sow in some new, but just never got around to it until this week. I decided last month I better hop to it, because Mini would freak out whenever he'd go into my office and see her plucked noggin on the shelf. *sigh*
Anyway, I got the ties to put her head on, and when I got back from dropping off Oldest, I put her back together. Woot! She's all finished now, and quite cute. Has fresh new ponytails, and a "new" vintage dress and bloomers. Yesterday when I'd finished her hairdo, I asked Oldest to pick a name for her and he said, "Joey". So, Joey, it is. Here she is... all new and improved:
She originally had two auburn cornsilk pigtails, but someone had taken scissors and cut most of the back of her hair down to the scalp. I replaced her hair with Bernat? Foxy yarn in "sandy". I wish now I'd taken a before picture. Ah, well...
Anyway, the day mostly consisted of me hanging out here with Mini while Oldest was off at the library. While Mini was watching Backyardigans, I flopped on the couch with him and tried for the third time since early December to read Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton; I've been told the book is drastically different from the movie, so much better, more detailed, in depth etc. etc..,blah. For the life of me I can't seem to sit through this book. I have skimmed, fidgeted, read and reread bits and pieces of it, and today after my little sit down with Mini, I have put it into my donation box. I just can't do it. Not sure what it is. Too much build up. Maybe it's because I already know the park is full of dinosaurs. Whatever the case, I'll have to stick with the movie, because the book isn't working for me.
Tomorrow I plan to stay home and write. Hubby has to work, and my godfather has called and announced he'll be visiting. So, for the most part, a quiet day - I hope!
Happy Friday! I hope your weekend is a pleasant one!
