Growing up, my mom always made sure to announce on the 25th of every month how many more months until Christmas.
I find myself doing the same thing. HH thinks it's weird.
But do you realize that we are already 1/3 of the way to Christmas? Can you believe it?! It feels like it was just barely Christmas morning and I was washing load after load of laundry because half of my family was stricken with the plague.
Ah, good memories.
After three kiddos and billions of diapers, our changing table pad was in pretty sad shape. The thin plastic covering had ripped in so many places. I'd given up on taping them because Baby B would just pick at the tape and rip it off, ripping the plastic even further.
So, I'd added "sew new waterproof cover for changing table" to my list of things to get done before Darling A arrives.
But, I'm not much of a seamstress. And, I know I haven't really mentioned (or whined) about it here, but I'm REALLY tired and severely lacking in motivation. So, it kept getting put off.
And then we saw a bunch of those patterned Duck Tapes at the store last weekend. I'd never given these much thought beyond, "Weird. Who cares what their Duck tape looks like?"
But suddenly, a brilliant idea began formulating in my brain.
Who needs to locate waterproof fabric, cut it, or sew it when you have cute Duck Tape?
Ta-Da! This was my Joyful Moment today. (Ignore the badly scratched paint.) Isn't the pad super cute? I'm totally in love with it. Even HH was pretty excited about what a difference it made. I really should have done a before, but it was in a very embarrassing state. And this took hardly any time to do at all. Unlike sewing, which would have taken me hours because I'm sewing-impaired.
Can you tell how happy this made me?
Wishing you all Joyful Moments that make you SO (not sew) happy!
