Wear a Dress Week


If you read Erin's Dress a Day, you know today is Wear a Dress to Work Day - part of wear a dress to work week. So today I am wearing this dress I made last year. It is a Kwik Sew pattern and I made it from some great red linen from Fabric-store.com. It is one of my favorites.

I worked on my quilt last night - not the red one, but the other, more plain one. It's almost finished so I wanted to get it done. I might finish it tonight if I don't get home too late from bible study. I am starting a new bible study group that is with the women from my church. I don't need one more thing to do right now, but I know this will be a good study and also a good opportunity to get to know some more women better. We get so busy sometimes that we don't take time to socialize, and it's a good thing to have other women to talk to outside of work!

Today I have a meeting with a disgruntled parent that I am not looking forward to. I really have no idea why this parent is upset, but they want to take their daughter out of my class. Sometimes it's nothing that the teacher has done, but just that the parent has a bee in their bonnet, but still, you can't help but take it personally. I'll find out more at 4:00 today.
Yesterday we went over to my brother's house and saw a great Beatles cover group on TV called Rain. They were excellent . My brother and I are Beatles fans - he moreso than I. I don't have time to be a fan :-)

You look super fresh and pretty, good choice for a meeting with a disgruntled parent :-) I so understand. Seen my share of 'actively participating' parents...

Please post tomorrow why the parent had a bee in her bonnet! I'd like to hear from the teacher point of view. As a parent, I usually end up feeling like a bad parent after a teacher - parent meeting. I hate that!

Nice dress!
AND, thank you for your blog it is very informative!
