6:41am and awake

So, I am up at 6:41am trying to get Virginia to go back to sleep. She has gotten a lot  better. She is sleeping five hours at a time now at night. I am thankful for that.  So as I sit here waiting for her to fall asleep, I have been searching on etsy.com for diaper covers and cloth diapers. I am just blown away at the cost of these things. I mean, I understand they are handmade but I look at the prices and wish I knew how to sew. I think that may be a project of mine. I am going to learn how to sew. I wish I had my own sewing machine and had the skills to use one. I have always wanted to make my own purses. And now I want to make my own diaper covers and cloth diapers. Yeah I know a girl can dream. 

It cracks me up thinking how your priorities can change over the years. I mean just a couple of years ago all I was thinking about was myself. Now I am married with a child. I find myself asking for diapers for Christmas. And thinking about how I can be a better cook. Maybe be better at keeping the house clean.

This past Tuesday I went down to Gastonia and had lunch with a bunch of my girlfriends from high school. It is first amazing that we are all friends still. We don't get to hang out as much as we all wish we could. Since we are all scattered across the area. But sitting at the Applebee's table I started to think. Thinking about where each girl was in their lives and where I am. Katherine is finishing up pharmacy school and getting married in 2010. Melanie is living in Charlotte and working. LeAnn has a beautiful boy and successful job. Susan is living all the way in Washington state, married to a great guy and has a nice job. Katie is a mother of 6 with one on the way. She manages to work and still be a super mommy and wife. And one missing Lisa living in California. Married and being the best wife ever. And how can I forget Sarah. She is our own gypsy. She will most likely be traveling the world teaching people English. I don't think back in 2000 in high school I thought this would be where we all are today. But I can honestly say I am happy and thrilled to see what my future holds. 

I am sorry, I know I am all mushy. But at 7:00am your mind starts to wander around a bit. And being a stay at home mom now. Between the episodes of Jon & Kate plus 8, NCIS, and Food Network Challenges, I find myself day dreaming. And of course I am busy cleaning and doing laundry :-). I mean I don't sit on the couch all day. I would weight about 500 pounds if I did that. 

Ok, sorry for the random blog entry. But I believe Virginia is asleep it is 7:00am and I am off to catch a nap before she decides to wake back up. Catch you all later.

P.S. That is a old picture of all of us. But the only one I could find with all of us. I really need to get a new picture. And I do promise that I will blog about other things then cloth diapers very soon.

Haha.. how funny to see you blogging about cloth diapers! Guess they aren't that bad after all, huh?

That picture makes me so sad for some reason! How strange to not be at dinner with everyone.. it doesn't seem right!
