I came home and finished that and now I will get ready to try the heel all over again...please wish me luck! I am supposed to slip one, knit one and repeat. Then I will slip one and purl all the way across and continue this until I have 2 inches. Can I do this?? I don't know, since I messed up with the teacher in the class!!! Shameful, embarrassing....frustrating!!!! Has this ever happened to you? Is there a trick in knitting the heel flap with the "magic loop" system? Please share with me!!!!!
Other than that big mistake, I made 35 cupcakes for a kinder party tomorrow afternoon, yeehaw! And tomorrow is the last day as the tooth fairy, thank goodness. It is fun, but gets tiring. I want a day off!!!

I crazily said yes to teach a series of 15 nutrition classes to one grade unit, then said yes to a few other teachers wanting nutrition, then I have afterschool nutrition (4 per month) to cover as well. And that doesn't count the dental health classes for the month! I have 16 scheduled over the next 2 weeks and those aren't all with set times. I am still waiting on a handful to pick their times. Oh why do I do this??????? Because I love it :)
POPCORN! Who loves the mini 100 calories bags as much as me???? I am in love with these! I just popped one for me, needing a snack! See, we went to Applebee's for dinner and I picked the WW chili-lime grilled chicken salad (~250 calories). It was okay, the dressing was weird to say the least, so I didn't eat all of it. I did eat 2 boneless wings that His Majesty ordered and his "shooter" strawberry cheesecake. Now that was an insult. It is tiny!!!! I got home and needed a snack, popped my minibag in and wallah, popcorn!!!!!
I have packed my lunch for tomorrow (peanut butter and banana sandwich), work bags by the door, clothes hanging in the bathroom....I am closer to the morning....

Oh, while reading my favorite blogs today I ran across these pillows by dogged. They are wonderful and she is teasing us with a tutorial that I can't wait to see. I am hoping my link will take you there, I am still trying to get it to cooperate with me. Some posts it has worked, some not. Anyway, they are log cabin with gorgeous fabrics.
I also made a daycare party Valentine's cake for Ms Ivy, a sugar plum girl whose mommy I work with. I made this a simple white cake, buttercream icing with pink rosettes. I liked it, simple but sweet. Today her mommy asked to put me on cake retainer for her class and all parties. How fun...so I will be making party cakes for the 1 year old crowd this year :) What fun!!!
Anyway, tomorrow is a sheep shearing day!!! Yahoo!!! I am headed to check out some sheep, wool, yarn, all things glorious! Yes, I still love me some yarn! I am hoping to take loads of pictures and buy a trunk full of goodies that someday I will use...yes, someday.
