What’s new? Wait. I should be telling, not asking, since this is my blog.

Jack’s dad has been in town for the past 2 weeks or so, a big luxury since he is usually on the road more often than not. But the glut of time now is to make up for the month that he will be away from Jack during June. He’ll be driving the truck for a KTM race team to different races across Canada this summer. Hence all of the KTM swag the little guy’s been getting himself into lately :)

Jack and his dad and the swag

So other than visiting with dad and nursing my (once again) ailing back I’ve been sending in teaching cvs, tutoring, feeding Jack, and making this owl thing. No pattern, making it up as I go along. It’s kinda goofy but it has crinkly paper in the wings, ribbon bits, and I even found a little soft plastic box that I filled with beads to make a rattle sound that I put in with the stuffing. I’m particularly fond of my boy’s name I embroidered free-styly on the bum. As you can see, I am about to finish it. My sister told me how, still not sure if what she told me will work but I’ll try it tomorrow morning and let you know. (Click on the pics to see him a bit better)

Oh. And I would certainly be lying if I didn’t mention the Friday Night Lights marathon I’ve been on. It started last week when Jack decided to go from sleeping 10+ hours a night to waking up at 2:30 am and then proceeding to nurse at 1 hour intervals for 2 days straight. Boy was that fun – nothing like a little quality time spent with my son! I set myself up on the couch with bottles of water and snacks and the first season of Friday Night Lights. I’m now onto Season 2. Am in love with Coach Carter and were I younger that Tim Riggins is one cutie-pie too.
