If you read the comments, Rowena’s name should be familiar to you… and we got to spend some time with her when we were in Nashville for the chess tournament. Last time Danny and her daughter, Ella (who is exactly the same age as he is), got to visit was when he and I were on our way to the Mayo Clinic while I was pregnant with George.
Rowena has a seriously cool job. Besides being a homeschooling mama, she works for a company that makes sewing pattern design software. The general concept of this software is that you decide what you want to make, enter your measurements (or your baby’s measurements 🙂 ) and just like magic you can print out a perfect sewing pattern from your computer. Rowena’s area of expertise (actually one of many) is costumes… theatrical and historical costumes… So being able to be a costumer and a computer person all combined in one job seems pretty nifty, don’t you think?
Most of the photos with Rowena and me in them didn’t turn out very well, but all of our mutual friends would never forgive me if I didn’t post at least one with the two of us together.
Speaking of mutual friends, one of them MADE the most darling pair of shoes for George, and tomorrow I promise to take a picture of them and show you. But now I’m going to bed. Radiation is really taking its toll on me. I am seriously considering calling Abigail tomorrow to have the cooler fairy start doing her magic again. I really assumed I was going to be able to handle everything independently until my next surgery, but maybe I was overconfident. I just figured if I tried hard enough…
